Riu Palace

I love the hotel, was little disappointed with the 1st room given to us because it had a strong smell of mold, they gave another room with was great, love the hotel, place and food. Will highly recommend this place, although the carpet at first floors should be replaced.

Riu Palace Resort St. Martin was in need of a renovation...looked tired and dated....Cheapcaribbean left me in the dark in regards to boarding passes and tipping policy while staying at resort....created some real issues for me and my newlywed Wife because I was asked questions which I couldn't answer...cheap Caribbean hands off policy is unacceptable..

Good hotel

The staff was amazing and the food was delicious!! The hotel is really nice but the rooms were not great. The plumbing isn't good in the bathroom and there were tons of ants in bathroom. The sink kept clogging. Also the rugs were stained. The hotel has potential but the rooms need to be upgraded. My room didn't have an iron or blow dryer so I had to request it. Other than that the island is small and everyone is super friendly. The pool was really nice and again the staff was the best! Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We were treated very well that it makes up for the hotel room. It's a small hotel and everything is close which is convenient. Hotel is about 40 minutes with traffic from airport.

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.
