There is much to admire at the Rui Palace on Anse Marcel beach. But, there is also room for improvement...especially if the property aspires to be five star. The approach to the hotel is spectacular. Unfortunately, the front desk is ill-equipped to handle more than one check-in at a time. The process takes a while for the weary traveler and... More

I was looking for a resort to go and relax and my travel agent suggested this resort that was a new property for Riu. She had not personally stayed here but at other Riu properties and it looked beautiful. We stayed here February 22 - March 1/15. The front desk did call and check at the end of our first... More

Three friends and I spent 5 days here in March 2015 for a 50th birthday celebration. On checking in, the staff were professional and courteous. The open lobby immediately put us in an island state of mind. Although the food was similar each night at the buffet, there was enough variety that we didn't tire of it. The food was... More

My husband and I spent a week at Riu Palace resort earlier this month. It was a wonderful vacation, with a beautiful beach, nicely maintained gardens and fabulous food. However, Riu has still not figured out an efficient and clear system for A la carte restaurants reservations. We needed to line up three times in order to book 5 dinners... More

My family and I recently stayed at the Riu Palace St. Martin (March 8th – March 14th 2015) we were completely displeased with the lack of customer service, poor quality of food and lack of amenities.

This all inclusive resort is located in the secluded cove of Anse Marcel. The rooms are well appointed and the food is good and plentiful. There are three reservation only restaurants on the property which offer two settings per night with set menus. The chocolate dome with passion fruit center at Le Mer is not to be missed.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The buffet food is probably the best I have had. The bartenders were always smiling and made great drinks. They were always hustling, especially at the beach. Management accommodated all of our requests. We had a great time and will be back. The entertainment needs improvement but It certainly isn't a...

This is a review from a travel agent. I have stayed in many upscale all inclusive hotels and resorts in the Caribbean. First, let me start by thanking all the staff at Riu for taking care of us during our 10 days stay at the hotel: in particular, Mrs. Elise (Chef de réception), Mrs. Myriam (Supervisor), Agnes and Marie-Antoinette (Restauration)....
