Stayed at Riu Palace St Martin 11-18April 2015 and considering all the bad reviews we read before our arrival, my husband and I had an enjoyable week's stay. We stayed in room 1308, top floor, courtyard view, king bed. The room was very nice and everything worked fine until our second last night when the AC was not keeping the...

We spent 5 days here the third week of April and had a great time. I was skeptical about staying there after reading many of the posts, but we had a wonderful vacation there. I would highly recommend it. The rooms are large and comfortable with a balcony. The bathroom was newly remodeled and spacious. The bed was very comfortable....

It was a first time we came to the island for vacation. Even the resort was renovated and opened just five month ago and the territory still needs some improvements (better lawn, more flowering plants) - besides this we loved being there for one week and felt regrets not to stay longer. Beach is little narrow, but good enough, and...

This was the best trip me and my family have ever taken. There are many activities and other things to do! The view was amazing. But I think that they should boost the employees for the ALL INCLUSIVE BAR!!!!! Everything else was awesome, Like the infinity pool, The kayaks and jet skies for rent, The clean water and clean beaches,...

I was there with a group of friends in February and many the the reviews were very poor before that. I waited to write and see if it kept improving and it seems it did. We had a great time, the food was very good, 2 weeks and only once I could say we were not happy with the service...

Hello internet! I've decided to create this account and write this review after returning from an absolute amazing vacation on St. Martin. Now I'll be honest - I was a bit skeptical before the trip because of the numerous bad reviews posted on this site about this particular hotel. After being there for 6 days, all I can say about...

We were a bit wary of how out-of-the-way this hotel seemed on a map of St. Martin - but the taxi driver knew where it was, no problem, and the fare for the two of us in a cab was only US$40. Then, after 15 minutes of driving or so, she paused the car, put it in low gear and...
