Great vacation

My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rio in Saint Martin. We found the service to be excellent the staff very friendly and the food at the buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner was superb so we ate there every day except one day we went to the French restaurant . Checking into the hotel took entirely too long that has to be corrected . We loved the Calm Clear water at the beach . We took the Nexus shuttle from the airport and we're glad we did it I wouldn't want to Rent-A-Car they're up-and-down a very hilly area that I wouldn't want to drive myself to get to the resort . Overall a very enjoyable trip and we would return

Great Time

We had a wonderful experience at the Riu Palace in St. Martin. From pick up at the airport to the food, beach, and everything in between, we have no complaints. Cheap Caribbean was very easy to work with and everything from a planing perspective went according to plan. All of the staff was super friendly and helpful. Alain (concierge)and Janelle (reception) were absolutely incredible. I had to print documents for work and they could not have been more accommodating. The food was great. Breakfast and lunch were all buffet style, pretty standard food. Dinner restaurant options were great. We enjoyed the steakhouse and La Mer (french) the most. We probably would skip Krystal if we went back. The drinks at all bars were great and the bar tenders are very generous with their pours. One of my favorite aspects of the resort was that everything was in walking distance. We would walk right out from our room and down to the pool or beach. We could always get a good spot on the beach and the views are incredible. We also took advantage of some of the free activities (kayaking, paddle boarding, etc.) Also highly recommend the jet ski excursion ($) !!

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

It's a swanky destination in a Caribbean fav. St Martin is oooo la la chic.

Riu sits on the jaw-dropping Anse Marcel Beach - this crescent-shaped beach dazzles in white and blue.

The paths around the resort are perfect for daytime, afternoon and evening strolls.

Staying in and dining on the balcony is always a fav - 24-hour room service lets you dine at all hours.

Got the kiddos? Perfect. Let them have their own fun at the kid's club. You get much needed spa time.

 

What We'd Change

Some say it's a bit isolated, but we think it's the perfect escape. If you want to see the island, you may want to rent a car.
 

Why You Should Go

Nestled on the French side of St Martin. The 45-minute drive from the airport is worth the tres awe-mazing views.

It's a vibrant yachting destination - carve out some time to ogle at the chic boats in the marina.

There's live music at the resort a few times a week. Get your cocktail and enjoy the local sounds of the island.

The Iguana's by the pool are harmless picture-worthy creatures and add to the natural landscape.

Nature reserves are near the resort - hiking the trails and snorkeling the bright blue seas is a must.
