A great place.

A great place to spent a vacation. Very friendly staff and very good food. My only complaint is the reservation system for eating at their different restaurants. You have to show up everyday at 6:30pm to sign up for the first of second sitting of the restaurant, except for the one which offers a buffet. I wish we could sign up in the morning and a day in advance at the reception desk and choose the exact time of your reservation. In their present system you have to eat either at 6:30pm (first sitting) or 8:30pm (second sitting).

Mixed feelings

The location is secluded & there are not any included activities like paddle boarding/kayaks like other RIU locations. So you have to pay extra for everything. This was are only real disappointment. The staff was awesome! Patricio and, Alexander from the pool bar kept our drinks coming and we're very friendly. Same with the ladies at the other pool bar. Janelle resolved our room issues right away. Fannie was great for getting the party started. The food was ok compared to other RIU palaces. Many thanks to Alexander our omelettes every morning. Don't leave your patio/balcony doors open as critters come in. Do rent a car to see the island and other beaches, totally worth it. Be aware you have to come up a steep hill to get to the resort. It's beautiful here! We didn't bring our kid but saw all the other children had a great time. They even had a park on site.

Great value, great service, excellent food

This place was amazing. It's a long ways from everything...very secluded and peaceful. Definitely rent a car and check out the entire island. The Dutch side seems a lot nicer and cleaner. Day trip to Anguilla was nice. It's very quiet and slow paced there. The people at riu are friendly and helpful. The entire island seems friendly.

Not consistent with other Riu experiences

Loved the island of St. Martin very much, but not the best experience we have had with a Riu. We had a group of 5 couples and upon checkin were told we were upgraded to suites (Marina). That was great, but the rooms were very inconsistent. 2 had no shower curtain; despite calling everyday, one of them NEVER got a shower curtain in 5 days. We also had serious issues with AC and it is controlled by staff so you can't turn it down. Also, we had called ahead with questions about the power, and were told they had American power. When we go there, the nursing mother in our group was distraught because the pump wouldn't work without an adapter. It took more than 5 hours to get an adapter. Also, we missed the restaurant dinners the first 2 nights because we were told 3 different things by 3 different employees on how reservations worked. Overall not consistent with other fabulous RIU experiences we have had.

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.
