We stayed at this pleasant resort Feb 19 - 26, 2015. I will admit that when I was reviewing other travellers experience I was quite concerned because many were very negative. As a family we travel frequently and luck be had we have stayed at many RIU resorts and have yet to be disappointed. Yes we did have issues, such... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Rio, Feb 9-23 and are shocked at some of the negative reviews. This is a quiet little treasure spot, tucked away at the bottom of a beautiful, mountainy bay. This is a location for R and R so if you are looking for lots of action, stay elsewhere on the island. As... More

We stayed at the RIU Palace St. Martin in mid-January 2015, and had an excellent time. Admittedly our group of six (3 couples) were a little bit apprehensive about what to expect after seeing comments about the transition from the previous management to the RIU and some of the 'teething problems' that were ongoing, but in the end, we had...

Just came back from Riu St. Martin. Feb16-23, 2015 Ocean was not very calm, some waves. Beach is very narrow. Not too much sand to play with. Not too many kids. No kids club. There were some activities at the pool through out the day, but not too much participation. The best activity for our kids 6 and 10 y.o.... More

We had a short stay here in February and it was great. Rooms were huge, it really was all inclusive as drinks were included including the wonderful Pina Coladas at the beach bar overlooking the bay. This is a nice alternative in St. Maarten

We visited Riu Palace resort from February 12-19th 2015. This resort was rated as a 5 star resort. It is definitely not a five star resort by any means. The hotel, the grounds, food, service, beach,pool...........none of it represents a 5 star resort. The bottom line, when you book a five star you should get a five star!! My husband... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at the RIU "Palace?" in St. Martin. I realize that this former Radison has only been an all inclusive for a few months. Unfortunately for us, they have a long way to go to meet up to the standards of other RIU Palace's and other all inclusive resorts... More

This is a really nice hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there, but it is more or less impossible to walk to cul-de-sac or Grand case or any other place. Stay at the hotel or rent a car, Hertz has a counter in the hotel. Everything is up and running, no more renovations or closed restaurants. Hotel is quite nice,... More
