The four of us went to Riu Palace St Martin: 2 adults and 2 children (9 and 10 years old). We took the package from SunWing: free for kids. Price was really low and was expecting the worst for the room. Room was finally far better than expected. Modern and quite refurbished. Carpet was a bit stained. Bathroom and beds...

I just got back a couple of weeks ago from St. Martin. I stayed at the Riu which I would say is definitely a 4 star, it is not a palace but it still is a nice resort. I've stayed at the Riu in Aruba which is a palace and I liked it there better. This location is not as...

Stayed in Riu with family and friends. We’ve been coming to this place for years when it was Radisson; this was the first time after Riu took over. What can I say? Things they couldn’t change are still there, mountains surrounding the resort, beach, and ocean. Everything else either got worst, or got much worst. Main complaint is the food....

This place is beautiful but the service is the worst. Management did not show expected focus on guest and customer service. Staffed tried very hard but...

We stayed for 10 days at the end of August. As many reviewers already stated, the beach location is really lovely but it is very crowded. You have to start early to ensure a spot and lounge chair and you are right on top of each other. The room was spacious and the AC worked well but there was this...

We Stayed at Rui Palace St Martin Hotel mid-August. PROS: · Picturesque beach, not crowded. The resort grounds and the pool are beautiful. · Room was neat and clean · Food was decent. They have “high-end” specialty restaurants and these are reservations-only and you’ll want to book them before your arrival because they fill up fast. · Staff was very...
