Horrible

Went to buffet food was cold everytime or empty my fiancé had diarrhea from food poisoning 3 out of our 5 day vacation..... Service everyone was rude rude rude..... I've stayed at 3 other Riius and they were all excellent but do not expect anything excellent from this place!!!! Everytime I got in bed I itched ....Very disappointed ... My boyfriend proposed in the courtyard and no water in any of the fountains but he made the best out of it thankfully.

Lack Luster Experience

For starters the hotel is not as far as people say it is. It's about 30 mins from the airport and if you are comfortable driving on the island then renting a car is your best bet because the taxi's will cost you 65 dollars (Trustworthy Tax) We arrived at the hotel and they did not have my reservation listed ANYWHERE. Yet my parents who also booked a separate room at the same time that I did with the same representative of CC.com and yet my reservation could not be found. There were only two front desk representatives working at the time and about 10/15 people trying to check in & the check in process was about 20-25 mins. They gave me the run around and had me wait almost an hour until they "would give me the room anyways" Also i should mention they would not allow me to call CC.com using their phone or would not call to straighten this out. I got a corner room that smelled moldy and had cigar ash in the corner of the room. I had to go back to the front desk TWICE to get someone to clean it up. The rooms were sub par, nothing special and they would never refill or restock the cups, or mini fridge unless asked. The Hotel grounds are very nice and quite I will give it that. However after you take a couple of pictures the resort is actually a little boring. If you go to a bar or restaurant to eat it would take 15 mins to get a soda or beverage. All the restaurants seem to be booked like 2 weeks prior and the food is decent again nothing special. The pool and beach area are actually really nice and if you want to take some sort of tour its nice having the marina right next to the hotel however the nightly entertainment would only be for an hour or two and then after 11 they would shut down the music, the bar, and there would be no specific area just to hang out. My parents are both in their upper 60's and they were expecting better entertainment that they were bored. For the price paid there are other hotels that have the same amenities and grounds for probably a better price. Would def go to SXM again but would not stay here.

Best R&R the wife and I have had in a long time

All inclusive are so nice because it makes your stay very easy. Price was really good. Service and location were very nice. The beaches in St Martin are spectacular. Great spot for kids.

What's to Love

All-inclusive everything: the cocktails, the grub, the utter awesomeness of it all.

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.
