Everything about this property was amazing....location....walking distance to beach, restaurants and grocery store.
The view was spectacular overlooking the mountains to one side and the bay to the other.
The room was very well appointed with a kitchen and nothing was amiss. everything was perfect.

Had an amazing two night stay pre time share week stay at another resort. But this is very pleasing to your sense's. the views are amazing from the infinity pool. They had free samples of wine and champagne. There are a few bars and restaurant's within walking distance.

I recently returned from a 5 day stay at the Riu with my girlfriend and had an awesome experience. From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff was friendly, helpful and welcoming. One of the first people we met was the bell man named David. He was helpful throughout the trip and pointed us toward a few nice places to see on the island. The same could be said for the rest of the staff – the bar tenders were all upbeat, the room service was quick and easy, the front desk was helpful with anything we needed and the waiters and waitresses were professional and friendly. I read some negative review on this topic specifically and even witnessed a man having a difficult time with the front desk when I arrived, but I honestly believe those people either have stuck up attitudes or are just taking generally a negative approach to things.
The grounds of the hotel were incredible as was the room. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a larger pool in my life and the beach was one of the nicest I’ve been to. Anse Marcel is certainly secluded, but it was exactly what we were looking for. We were lucky enough to get a room with a view of the marina but there is no bad view at the hotel.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Riu to anyone because of the value it provides. As I mentioned, the resort is beautiful, the food and drinks are great and the staff is very friendly.
