First, about us. We are a well traveled family that knows good from bad. We are easy going..more prone to roll with things than complain. This is a review that will unfortunately clearly fit into the complaint side of things. The good: Property, beach and food are all goodand what we would expect. The BAD: 1) Organized activities are practically...

I have never written hotel reviews but this time around I really had to. I've been to many riu hotels in Aruba, Jamaica, Costa Rica, and Tunisia but this has to be the worst experience ever. Let me start from the minute I checked in. First of all riu claims to have done renovations to this propery - total lie!!!...

My husband and I recently spent three days at the all-inclusive Riu Palace Hotel in Anse Marcel. We found the location to be quiet, surrounded by pretty green hills, with a lovely beach and cove where several catamarans and sailboats anchored. Anse Marcel is a somewhat remote location on the French side of St Martin, thus the "quiet" description, but...

You get what you pay for in most cases. This is an exception. 4th gen riu lady and district manager say ...'were trying to do things better' etc. They are not focusing correctly on making their name an alternative to a sort of new better sandals. Wheather it's profit or poor management at the top, I'm afraid there's no excuse...

There is much to admire at the Rui Palace on Anse Marcel beach. But, there is also room for improvement...especially if the property aspires to be five star. The approach to the hotel is spectacular. Unfortunately, the front desk is ill-equipped to handle more than one check-in at a time. The process takes a while for the weary traveler and...

I was looking for a resort to go and relax and my travel agent suggested this resort that was a new property for Riu. She had not personally stayed here but at other Riu properties and it looked beautiful. We stayed here February 22 - March 1/15. The front desk did call and check at the end of our first...

Three friends and I spent 5 days here in March 2015 for a 50th birthday celebration. On checking in, the staff were professional and courteous. The open lobby immediately put us in an island state of mind. Although the food was similar each night at the buffet, there was enough variety that we didn't tire of it. The food was...

My husband and I spent a week at Riu Palace resort earlier this month. It was a wonderful vacation, with a beautiful beach, nicely maintained gardens and fabulous food. However, Riu has still not figured out an efficient and clear system for A la carte restaurants reservations. We needed to line up three times in order to book 5 dinners...

My family and I recently stayed at the Riu Palace St. Martin (March 8th – March 14th 2015) we were completely displeased with the lack of customer service, poor quality of food and lack of amenities.
