Hotel Riu Palace St Martin
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Anse Marcel
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We luckily had the experience of staying here for 5 nights not during a school vacation. I never felt crowded, nebver had to "reserve" a chaise at the pool or on the beach as they were readily available. The beach is beautiful but not for snorkeling , and no one bothers you trying to sell their merchandise or service. The rooms were good but could've been larger. The breakfast buffet is good and the staff is very helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

We spent a week in February here to "thaw out" from the Chicago winter and it was great. The resort is tucked away in a beautiful secluded location, we rented a car for the week since taxis would have added up and we enjoy exploring. The breakfast that was included was outstanding and served until 10:30, so we would wander over around 10 am and called it brunch. Beach & pool guys were available to set up chairs & umbrella's and we never had a problem finding a comfortable spot to relax. The landscaping also provided for natural shade from the palm trees around the pool and above the sand on the beach. The Spa was first class, we booked a couples massage and were very happy with the experience.

Room Tip: The Deluxe rooms face into the courtyard while the Standard ones face out. We booked a Standard and...

My daughter and I left -28 C in Toronto to enjoy +28 C in St. Martin last week. After much research on Tripadvisor, I picked this lovely hotel and was not disappointed! It was just as wonderful as others have described and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The beach is beyond compare and you really do feel like you are in another world. There were lots of comfortable beach chairs and if you needed an umbrella, all you had to do is ask. The gentlemen who set them up were attentive and cheerfully walked along to make sure everyone who wanted one got one.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff is to be commended. The room was spotless and was made up each day while we were at breakfast. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the layout of the room was perfect. The bathroom was huge, which was nice when my daughter and I were trying to get ready at the same time. We stayed in a "deluxe" room (2223) because the suites have only king sized beds and we wanted 2 queen beds. There was a nice view of the gardens. It was very quiet even though there were lots of families there when we visited. The blackout drapes are great and you don't realize how lovely and sunny it is until you open them in the morning.

I enjoyed the breakfasts, especially the lovely fruit and homemade yogurt and jams. There were lots of options and it was a pleasant eating area. We ate at Le C a couple of nights (delicious) and Marche when they had an Italian buffet on Wed. night. All the meals were beautifully served. We enjoyed the spa one day (facial and pedicure) and Karen (Careen?) was amazing!
A highlight of the trip was a snorkelling/boat trip with Captain Jo that the concierege was able to arrange for us. It was worth every Euro! Another highlight was the wonderful music on Wed. night, which I enjoyed from the amazing infinity pool.
Thank you to everyone at Radisson Blu for a memorable holiday! I can see why this hotel gets top marks.

Room Tip: I liked 2223. Very quiet and close to Marche (restaurant where you eat breakfast).

We as a family of 2 adults & 2 kids 4.5 and 5.5 yrs, stayed here for more than a week. This hotel is full of fantastic people, food and lots of interesting things to see. Don't forget to keep your eye open for Gaston!
The beach was beautiful, waves so soft and calm. Rain never lasted more than 10 minutes and was warm. This hotel was kid friendly, without being catered to kids.
Lots of French/European tourists.
The French language allows you to experience another level but is not required to be understood.
Special mention to Agnes, Christina, Sinthia who work at Le Marche restaruant for creating a special memory for my girls.
Although it took a long time for us from the West Coast of Canada to get there, it was worth it and I highly recommend it.

This resort is much nicer than what I expected, and other than the lobby which is shabby and oddly decorated, is really a five-star resort. The restaurants both serve excellent food with great service, better than the food we had in St Barth. The ambience at the restaurants is also top notch, very romantic, crisp and well-designed.

The beach has beautiful blue water and some perfectly placed palm trees, so pretty it feels like a movie set.

Our room was very comfortable, well-decorated, and new. The bathroom was big, open and newly tiled, and felt like a spa.

Aside from the lobby, which really does need a refurb, this is an excellent resort for couples or families, and I would recommend it highly.

We stayed here in February and enjoyed the whole experience. Driver from airport was upset about taking us there because of narrow, steep road. Other taxi driver, whom we called on several times, was fine with driving. Beautiful, secluded location. We just wanted to stay near water and relax...so this was perfect. Very nice grounds. We went for run in morning, had a wonderful breakfast, included, and sat by clear, blue, gorgeous water.
Room was comfortable, clean, and had nice decorations. Patio with chairs also was nice.
Staff are truly friendly and pleasant to interact with. Kudos.
Would definitely come back.

Stayed there back in November. We were with a group of people and the Radisson Blu stay were awesome. I have never had such a relaxing trip and when I can go again I will def be staying there again. With its location you feel like you have your own resort and the rooms were also in great shape. Thank you for the great stay and relaxing vacation.
