We got a great flight and room package on Expedia and stayed June 16-23. This was our 5th Riu vacation and the best so far! But only because it was so unlike any other we've experienced: most Riu's we've stayed in were mega-resorts, but this hotel is small and intimate. Many times it felt like we had the place to...

This is a beautiful resort with very good food and friendly people at the resort. Our room was very spacious and nice despite the presence of ants. The beach was very small compared to other beaches in the world like Maui and Siesta Key. Very few people smoked on the beach, but the sight of cigarette butts made this each...

We just got back from Riu Palace St. Martin on Sunday, 6/22/2015. The Riu Palace St. Martin is locate in a remote location, therefore, we must take taxi to go to town. The check-in process was quick, staff are professional, polite and friendly. Room seems nice and clean, but the carpet was smelly, luckily we brough a lavender room fragrance...

I just got back from Riu this past Thursday, one week June 13-19th, 2015. The hotel needs to be upgraded to be a Riu Palace like other ones. Hallways smelled like pee at night. 2nd floor room 2206. Food needs to have more variety and food signs properly in place. The location was quite the challenge, for those who want...

Just came back from a trip to St-Martin. My boyfriend and I stayed at the Riu Palace Hotel and had a great time. The resort was gorgeous! Food was good, drinks were strong, and everyone was very nice. The private beach is nice, but it isn't very big so it does get crowded pretty fast. If you're wanting to lounge...

First let me start by saying that this is our 6th RIU Hotel/Palace that we’ve been to. We stayed from June 6th to the 13th. This is definitely a different one than the others that we’ve been to. In May of 2014 the RIU bought the Radisson Blu and made it their own. Let me say this much, the resort...

We spent a week at the RIU and loved it. Our room was clean and cool when we checked in. The mini fridge was stocked with soda, water, and beer. It was refilled daily. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch daily and multiple times for dinner. I thought the food was very good. We ate at the...

We spent 4 nites/5 days June 4-8th at this beautiful resort in St. Martin. We have stayed in St. Maarten (Dutch side) 3 times but decided to go to the Riu (our favorite all inclusive brand) on the French side.

We visited the Riu Palace Saint Martin June 5-13, 2015 and had a wonderful time! Check-in was easy and quick. We asked for adjoining rooms since we had our 3 boys with us and didn't get them, were told its a request not a guarantee.
