Overview

Formerly the Radisson Blu Resort, Marina & Spa St. Martin, this newly rebranded RUI hotel neighbors Le Domaine de Lonvilliers along northern St. Martin's Anse Marcel sands. At this all-inclusive, guests have access to an infinity pool with complimentary sun loungers and towels, kayaks and snorkeling equipment, and one free scuba diving lesson. All other sports, such as windsurfing and sailing, cost extra. If you're traveling with kids in tow, the hotel's got you covered there, too: It offers a day program for guests ages 4 to 12. After you've worked up an appetite, head to the Hotel Riu's 24-hour buffet or any one of its three specialty restaurants. And as far as rooms go, travelers say that they were more than comfortable here thanks to the spacious floor plans and private balconies and patios (not to mention complimentary high-speed Internet access). However, some visitors do note that the furnishings are a bit worn. Last – but certainly not least – the Hotel Riu grants access to a picturesque white-sand beach, peppered with lounge chairs and umbrellas.

READ MORE 

Now under the RIU brand, this family-friendly all-inclusive (including alchoholic beverages) is well located: on a great beachy cove on 18 acres in a quiet part of St. Martin. Comfortable rooms, while not huge, have been refurbished with contemporary Euro flair, cheerful accents of Caribbean colors, and fresh carpeting.
