This resort is now owned by Spanish company in French overseas territory. This characterizes the resort. I have stayed several all-inclusive resorts. Most of them do not offer good food. RIU St. Martin is the first resort I enjoyed food at buffet. This said, restaurants need improvement for two points. First, all three restaurants need to improve food quality. I...

The worst first. I received an email from the RIU about local trip information and it included info about a shuttle/van/bus that went from the RIU every Monday at 0900 into Marigot, in addition to reading about it online. Plus we heard about a shuttle/van/bus that goes to the casinos on Friday evening. We asked about the Marigot bus at...

This was the first all inclusive we have ever stayed at. Overall a nice place to stay. What we learned is that we probably would have liked the anse marcel beach resort better. With an all inclusive you have limited choices and fell like you need to stay on site to get your money's worth. For families this is the...

We stayed at the Riu St. Martin from 6/29 until 7/6. It is NOT a REAL Riu hotel (I have been to the Punta Cana Riu and Cancun Riu) but the price is. We were a group of 6 adults and a baby. The hotel looks ok and it's fairly clean (except for the ants in my room) but the...

Had a great stay as we were there for a wedding with a large group in May Rooms were average but a good size. The bathroom was large and I do not understand all the complaints about the door. We were there with two toddlers and had no problem. They were doing maintenance while we were there painting walls but...

We booked when it was the raddison. We went with 2 families. Kids ages were 4,7,7,10,12. The hotel was nice but nothing really around the hotel. The rooms were clean but nothing fancy. They has a nice pool area. Our biggest problem was the old man (75 ish, he was a guest) somehow had control of the pool music off...

In-Depth Review Summary: This was like being on a mediocre cruise ship that is stuck in a Spanish port. This Spanish-owned, all-inclusive is an exceptionally poor cultural fit for this delightful French island. Riu brings a 3rd world management style to a culturally advanced, classy island. I do not like this property. With some of the best food in the...

The Riu Palace was the best experience at a resort I've ever visited. Period! It's in a beautiful location with a beautiful beach. The staff is friendly and helpful and room service was prompt.
