The best "All Girls Trip"

This was the first time I've ever gone on an All Girls Trip with friends and it was the best trip ever. The resort was spacious and so beautiful. I know there was a loss with the hurricane and I pray they will be able to restore it so I can visit with my family. I enjoyed every bit of this trip and loved the island.

BEAUTIFUL view not comparable to other Riu Palaces

If you are use to the amenities of the Riu Palace properties this one has only been Riu Palace since about year ago, staff is mostly the same and they are not use to being all inclusive. Beautiful views. NO swim up pool bar, they do carry drinks from beach bar to pool! NOTHING like normal Riu Palace, are not AT ALL up to Riu Palace standards yet!

These comments are all based before the hurricanes having hit the island. The hotel was about a fifty minute drive from the airport and was located on the French side of the island. After weaving in and out of traffic and up some steep hills we saw the resort in the valley below. It looked amazing and fairly private in its own cove. The hotel was purchased by RIU so the hotel was a bit older and not built the same as many Palace hotels are now. Still it had charm and had more a feel of quiet and calm than a party resort. The grounds where full of beautiful gardens and walkways. The rooms were nice but not what I have found at most RIU Palace hotels. The food was good with a large selection of items. We particularly enjoyed the lobby bar in the evening with Pepe and Pepo the bar tenders. There were three other restaurants within short walking distance as well as some nice gift shops. Also a marina was right beside the hotel that offered a variety of activities. The beach was great and we saw sea turtles at times. Ten minutes away is a small town full of dining opportunities that is a must try. There is also a small island just five minutes away that offers a boat taxi to and let’s you have a day away, also well worth the effort. I would advice renting a car since the taxi service was pricey. Easy to drive the island and explore the many spots to see.

Our trip to St. Martin and Hotel Riu Palace St. Martin was very good and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The property is very beautiful nestled in Anse Marcel with a great beach and view of Anguilla on a clear day. The water is what you would expect, warm and clear and the staff keeps the beach clean of debris. Restaurants were good, especially the buffet for breakfast and dinner. We dined once at the French La Mer and it was also very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the massive pool with infinity edge, zero entry, and shallow lounge areas --- something for everyone. Rooms were comfortable and clean as well. There were a few things the management can improve upon. When we were there, the property was completing a transition from a previous ownership and the Riu experience was still being established. Some of the fountains were not working and there was some minor maintenance required on the property. Our room while equipped with a bar had one of the dispensers broken and it was never corrected while we were there. Also, the Riu has a no Spring Breakers policy, however, some groups seemed to forget about this and at times did not adhere to restaurant dress code policies and at times were loud, obnoxious, and quite frankly rude. There are other 'party' properties in both French and Dutch St. Martin if this is your goal. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our get away, the all inclusive amenities, and the Riu Palace. We are very saddened with the impact hurricane Irma had on St. Martin and can only imagine the destruction caused to the property since our visit and offer the staff our prayers in such a devastating time. Go to the Riu Palace when they reopen.....the area is just beautiful.

Great Vacation

We arrived for a two week trip on August 31. Its a beautiful resort, amazing beach and pool. I travelled with two kids under 5 and it was kid friendly. The staff was very helpful and joyful. The buffet was amazing and had variety. We enjoyed all meals. The night entertainment needs a bit more help but it was fine and we had fun. It is true that there is upgrades that need to be done. The room was clean but the tiles, carpet and paint were tired. However, it was confortable and clean. What a beautiful island and property. We booked a sail to st-barts and we had a wonderful time with the seaduction crew. Our stay was interrupted by Irma and 4 days into our vacation we were sent back home. However, we really wish to go back one day, this was an amazing place nestled in a beautiful cove and we have wonderful memories of our stay. I wish all people from st-martin, st-barts and Anguilla the best of luck, my thoughts and prayers are with them while they are recovering from Irma.
