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.

BEDBUGS

We had a terribly horrific vacation at the RIU Palace in St Marteen. Our room and our friends room were infested with bed bugs. We were bitten multiple times before we realized the beds were infested with bed bugs. The Riu had no doctor on sight so we had to wait until we got back to the USA to seek medical attention. When we consulted with the Assistant Manager Clement Perna he indicated the rooms would be inspected by the Pest Control Company and the RIU's Health and Hygiene department and we would be given a report. I have asked The Riu numerous times but they have yet to release the report and it's been two months. The bed bug issue itself was a horrific ordeal but the carpet in the room was stained, dirty and gross. The hotel is very dated and desperately needs to be update. The iguanas that roam the pool area are something to see until you see them urinate and defacate in the pool while guest are swimming. This was no vacation and caused us a lot of anxiety. We had to cancel our excursion, which we booked in the hotels lobby, due to the multiple bed bug bites we had. The excursion company would not refund our money because we didn't go to town to the doctor. This was not a vacation of relaxation but one of GREAT stress and anxiety.

A great family vacation place

This hotel, situated on the French side of the island (Anse Marcel), is not 5* perfect but it is definitely one of the nicest Caribbean places that we ever visited. 3 years ago, Riu purchased the hotel from the Raddison chain and they have made it a great all inclusive family hotel. It is in a secluded area, surrounded by mountains and the Caribbean Sea, across from the British island of Anguilla. The staff is very friendly and they make every effort to please. Tips are not expected but much appreciated as salaries cover life's basic necessities, but not much more. One of the best things about this hotel is the food. The buffet has lots of choices and the 3 more formal restaurants (Steakhouse, La Mer and Krystal) serve excellent cuisine with great presentation. The beach is spectacular and there are lots of shaded areas to keep cool. The pool is huge and good for all the family with one end set up as a beach while the deep end is just over 5' deep. The rooms are clean and roomy but the best views are actually overlooking the mountain across the water way leading to the marina. Ocean front is not available and ocean view is only that, a small view from far. Don't jump when an iguana (like island dogs) shows up and makes itself at home right next to you. There is plenty to do at the resort, but day trips to visit the island are a must, made easy buy renting a car from the on sight Hertz agency. In fact, a 24hr rental of a small car costs less then a taxi ride, so go for it. Parking on the island is easy and a day trip into Marigot, Grand Case or Philipsburg will allow you to visit other beautiful beaches of the island. If you feel adventurous, there are excursions to other islands in the French West Indies, such as St-Barth and Anguilla. We would definitely return to this beautiful island hotel.

Serenity at its best.

We have just got back from St. Martin. We stayed at The Riu Palace We occupied two rooms: 2228-2230. We loved this hotel because of its complete seclusion. It was quiet, serene, nice and had a wonderful feel to it. The grounds were impeccably done, well maintained and well taken care of. The service was great, staff was amazing and anything in between was where it was supposed to be. The beach was nice and had no rough waves or any waves at all. You could either swim for hours or just sit and do nothing. It's also kids friendly. The food was good. the buffet offers a variety of dishes that suit all kinds of pallets. And as long as you aren't fussy, you won't go hungry. There are three restaurants. My favorite is La Mer. The entertainment needs amelioration, but we didn't care. We made friends from different countries and had a great time. All and all, this hotel is a wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy your holidays. I also donated one of my books to the pool library. It is called: Whispers and Shadows.If you ever have a chance to read it, please make sure to go online a put a review. I would greatly appreciated it. And yes, I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. Enjoy and cheers!
