"All is nice but mosquitoes"
Very nice hotel in excellent condition, extremely pleasing, accommodating staff, generous buffet breakfast. A private beach makes the hotel more unique. Room cleanness and service is truly exemplary. All in all this is a recommended destination for couples, families and travel-lovers. The only problem seems to be the mosquitoes. It is not a problem […] that the hotel may address on its own. Nevertheless it is a major problem. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is in an amazing location, forget all the others, especially the Westin (we have visit that one too). The staff is friendly, although carribbean, which means that no prompt acting shall be expected. Yet if you get accustomed to that, it will be just fine. Try the a-la-cart restaurant on Fridays, the food is exceptional, the best we have experienced […] in any hotel. The buffet lunch is forgettable (although quite OK, but far from what you can get in the island's restaurants), go to nearby restaurants instead. All nearby islands are worth a visit. The Marina Suite is comfy, nicely decorated, fulfils all needs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for families"
This is a very nice resort on the beach. Pool is also very nice specially for kids. Restaurant is nice, beach bar exists as expected, breakfast buffet has very good French food as well as american stuff (bacon, sausage, pancakes and all the other healthy stuff we like). No reef off the beach so you have to travel if you like snorkeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for relaxation away from city bustle."
An overall very good experience - staff was friendly and welcoming. The one hiccup was the attendant saying that we'd been upgraded to a deluxe room when in fact we came into the trip having booked a deluxe room - fail on her part.Genuine Expedia guest review
All though the drive from the airport was 45 minutes away, we were so happy to arrive at the quiet tranquility of the radisson blu. The grounds are beautiful and the room accommodations just perfect. We enjoyed the daily breakfast and relaxed poolside and by the secluded beach. Alain, the concierge, had the best recommendations, sending us to Ocean […] 82 and Loterie farms and other various places for dinner that were exquisite. He was also invaluable helping our couple friends who traveled with us locate their lost luggage (don't fly delta!) Getting taxis for our various excursions was super easy and they were all very friendly. Big recommendation is to take the half day or full day excursion to pinel island via captain Jo. Probably our best day there!! St. Martin has been our favorite Caribbean island destination (and we've been to them all) and plan to come back to the radisson blu again.

"Beautiful, Relaxing, Expensive & Boring"
The hotel is beautiful, the grounds are well kept. The pool is big and lovely, the ocean is nice and calm. the breakfast that is including is wonderful and rich. Everything else is really expensive. I went with my best friend and we got bored day 2. This place is more or families and couple, I would suggest booking excursions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great French experience, with beautiful beach!"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect pampered Caribbean getaway!"
We sought a beautiful Caribbean island resort to relax by the sea in pampered comfort, away from crowds, but w/ability to easily go elsewhere for adventures. The Radisson Blu fulfilled all our requirements! (Take fun water taxi from the Sain Marteen airport, just 30 mins., to avoid much longer drive on winding mtn rds.) Resort's grounds are beautiful […] w/lush gardens, easy access to beach, pool, restaurants,etc. All rooms, except Marina suites, are located in two 3-story wings perpendicular to the beach, so there are no oceanfront rooms. But sea is distantly visible from "interior" rooms facing gardens. All rooms w/large balconies or patios & simply but well furnished. (We recommend upper floor rooms for more privacy.) Wonderful massages at Le Spa! Great beach bar w/very friendly staff who serve food & drinks at your beach chaise! Two Resort restaurants: Le C, feet from sea for lunch and dinner; pricey but w/excellent service and its own bar; Le Marche, 200 ft. from beach, serves delicious, sumptuous breakfast buffet (included), plus lunch & dinner. Resort has a small boutique for necessities & tasteful souvenirs. Next to Resort by Marina is small shopping area w/boutiques, market, sailing/scuba/snorkeling tours, creperie & 3 restaurants. (We recommend Victoria's Restaurant facing Marina.) The Radisson Blu's Staff at every level are extremely friendly, polite, and seem genuinely interested in ensuring that guests' needs are met or exceeded! Wonderful resort vacation!

Nice spot. Room was comfy. Bathroom was big and Clean. Shower leaked. Took a little long to get the room made up. Check in was slow. Facilities was very nice. Food was good. Breakfast Buffet was good. Restaurant by water was very good. All restaurants are pricey but good. Calypso across the street is excellent. L' astrolabe should not be missed. Definitely […] rent a Jeep. Roads are rough and hard to negotiate. Worth the extra bucks to rent a jeep. We rented a Blue Mustang convertible which bottomed out all over the Island. There are 450 speed bumps. This Raddison is one of the nicest spot on the island. Price is good. Beach is the nicest on the island. Definitely stay at the Radisson get a Jeep and Cruise the Island.

"Beautiful, peaceful resort."
we enjoyed the marina suite, very private with the back porch overlooking the canal. It is only 10 min. drive to Grand Case for wonderful dinning experience. The beach is awesome, pure sandy bottom, crystal clear water. I look forward to our next stay there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gorgeous pool area."
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds were spectacular with an infiniti pool and beautiful foliage all around. The hotel was fully booked but there was no problem getting seating around the pool or beach. No getting up early to save your spot. The breakfast, included with your room, was wonderful. A pot of french press coffee made […] fresh at your table. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"very good hotel in great location"
everything was on time, big breakfast buffet, nice beach very good serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice enough, and quite nice by St Martin standards I suppose. It is situated in a sleepy little bay on the French side of the island (facing N/NW so not the best beach experience possible). It fell short of the quality of other Raddison Blu properties I have experienced, however, both in terms of quality of the facility and quality of […] service. For example, there was not any bottled drinking water provided in the room, we actually had to go to the supermarket in town to supply ourselves. This is definitely a departure from the usual Radisson Blu program. The hotel itself is perhaps a bit "tired"-- carpets a bit worn, decor a bit dated, etc. I was EXTREMELY disappointed not to get points on my Club Carlson Card (apparently because I booked through Expedia) as this was one of the primary drivers to my selecting Radisson Blu in the first place. Had I known they would not award me points for my week long stay, I would likely have made a different purchasing decision :-( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful Beach Front Hotel"
The hotel was beautiful with pristine grounds! The beach location was perfect and so very quiet, even though it was high season. At times we were the only people even in the water. The pool was beautiful and quiet and there was plenty of room for everyone. Buffet breakfast was ok, but the fact that it was free with the room leaves little room for complaint. […] Dinner at C Le Restaurant was good, but not perfect. As other reviewers note, the bathroom is strangely laid out with sliding doors instead of fully closing hinged doors and the tub/shower set up is interesting and leads to a lot of water on the floor. Regardless of these issues the hotel is still quiet, beautiful, relaxing and absolutely worth visiting. If you're not into the casino, nightlife scene and just want to relax on a beautiful beach- this is definitely the place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice hotel, beautiful beach"
The staff was friendly, the grounds well maintainedGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was just lovely. The rooms were very nice, and kept clean. The property was just magnificent. In fact, it reminded a lot like Hawaii, except it had a "FRENCH" flair. The pristine beach is nestled in between two beautiful mountains, the grounds were lush and kept immaculate and the pool is beautiful. The staff was very accommodating, the restaurant […] was very good as well. I would definitely recommend it and would go back in a heartbeat!!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything at the hotel is overpriced. Make sure you stop by a convenience store on the way to pick up some waters- they cost about 8 euro at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Remote, beautiful resort with very friendly staff"
I stayed here once 15 years ago when it was a different name, and it is still the same gorgeous property. It is a great place to go if you want to stay at your resort and not use a rental car every day. The infinity pool is huge and offers plenty of privacy at one end if the families with children are at the other end. The beach is small but due to […] the remote location, is fairly private and peaceful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. All you have to do is ask if you need or want something. They greet you with a welcome drink which is a very nice touch. They have a staff member who does come around at breakfast to each table to ask if all is well, if there are any problems or if you need anything. The spa is amazing and I do not say that lightly. Their masseuse Zoe is fantastic. The resort itself could not be any more beautiful or relaxing. It is fairly expensive but worth the money if you insist on high quality and excellent service.

"Vacation oasis even during holidays"
We very much enjoyed our stay at this resort over this holiday season. Bellman & reception are welcoming. Concierge service uneven. Staff is well trained and very pleasant. The rooms are large, comfortable & well maintained. The need to add to their linen supply as several days we were without bathmat or face cloths. Their pool is large, pretty and […] well attended by staff. Ditto for the beach area. The beach bar is a little lively late afternoon. It offers snacks then and at lunch, but nothing too exciting. A comprehensive buffet breakfast is included w. a plus given to the individual pressed coffee pots and a negative to all of the eggs being cooked over too high a heat. We found its 2 restaurants to offer disappointing fare but Grand Case is nearby. There also are 2 small restaurants across from the hotel. Anse Marcel is rather remote and hiring a car is advised. Musical entertainment is decidedly limited. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"What the Caribbean is meant to be!"
I had a lovely 3 days - I was traveling alone and had a really nice time. The hole establishment is kept well maintain. Everyone at the front desk was very professional and trying their best. My room was on the lower floor, clean and confortable (the tub leaked every time it was used so I needed to put towels to absorb all the water) I did reported […] my alarm clock (iphone station) wasn't working and they didn't replace.. not a big deal.. The food was UNEXPECTEDLY GOOD! I've been to Cancun a few times and the difference in quality is important - breakfast was great! Lunch by the beach paradisiacal.. The beach was super nice and well kept - you can spend the whole day there.. service at the beach (drinks etc) isn't really the strongest point.. you have a bar were you can order drinks an so.. I did had an expresso and it costed 5 euros.. a little overpriced I think.. The Hotel is a little far from SXM airport (about 30 minutes) YOU MUST rent a car o you will spend a fortune in taxis.. my car costed 160 for 3 days!! I am decently coming back to this hotel ;) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel but to far from the main airport"
The Hotel is beatufil but it is to far from the main airpor (Juliana). Food is excellent and personal friendly. This Hotel has an incredible beach because you will not find a lot of people; very relaxing !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good choice for relaxation"
Hotel is somewhat isolated on island, which is perfect if you want to be away from cruise ships, etc. nice rooms, pool, beach. Food quite good but restaurants across street, Victoria's and Calypso, are great alternatives and well prepared meals. Hotel staff very friendly. On the whole, an excellent hotel for a restful vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Radisson Blu: Chill of the Caribbean"
If you want lots of options and people watching, the Radisson Blu St. Martin is not for you. If you are looking for the quiet and chill of the Caribbean, the Radisson Blu is worth the trip. First, a rental car is a must. Anse Marcel is up and over a steep hill (attack that hill in your tiny rental car, you can do it). What awaits you is a small resort […] (large for St. Martin) on the quiet French side of the island. Nice pool and beach for children (and adults too). We enjoyed our stay and will consider returning after visiting a few more islands. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent Hotel on the beach!!!!"
I was there on my honeymoon and had such a wonderful experience. I could not have asked for A more perfect honeymoon. I loved every minute of my trip. The hotel staff was Amazing! The hotel manger was such a sweetheart and so kind to us. The manager's daughter recommended several restaurants to eat at which were phenomenal. The beach front property […] is so beautiful and well kept. Lots to do at the hotel. The pool was quite cold but still enjoyable on a hot day. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet was very good. I have to admit I will definitely be going back. It is such a great place and I rate it 5 star all the way. I wouldn't change a thing. The hotel manager and his family even sent us a bottle of champagne to our room and set us up a romantic dinner for two on the beach with champagne. It was probably the best night and best dinner I should say. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel away from everything."
If you want to relax and soak up the sun, then choose this hotel. Most of the other guests are European, which is nice if you want to get away from the usual american tourist. That said it is far from the Dutch side, but there is plenty to do with the local beaches. Grand Case is of course has some of the best food in the Caribbean. All in all I would […] come back. The food at the hotel is okay, so I would plan on eating out. Get a car! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice beach and pool"
St. Martin is fairly expensive. Get used to $35-50 cab rides, or rent a car instead. Island is not very large, but traffic and windy roads makes for long drives. I was there in the off season, so I can only imagine how bad it can be during peak. Beaches are amazing and everyone told me Orient Bay was the place to be, but surprisingly I enjoyed the private […] beach at the Radisson Blu far more. Be aware that everyone here wants cash, because ATMs are few and far between. Dollars are fine, euros are too. I had a great time and wouldn't mind going again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were looking for calm crystal waters on a fine white sand beach next to the hotel, yet close to the excellent French food St Martin is known for (the reason that this was our 4th visit to this island). We were totally enamored by this hidden bay paradise, only 10 minutes by cheap rental car from the little village of Grand Case where the great restaurants […] are found. None of our previous destinations on the Island can compare to this resort in any way and the friendly staff made us feel like we had a human connection to the place. And the multigenerational US/French families there were fun to watch, especially the toddlers on the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Off Season visit"
The resort was in slow season and there were not a lot of guests. It was very enjoyable to share the beautiful beach with 10 other people. The beach bar has a menu ranging from cheese and fruits to paninis to grilled tuna. Everything we ate was fresh and tasty. We also went jet skiing and got to see sea turtles swimming in the cove. There is a very […] large swimming pool that was closed for maintenance. We didn't miss it as the soft white sand beach and clear blue ocean were what we were seeking and it was wonderful. Looking forward to returning and seeing the friendly staff again. We rented a car at the airport. Other guests took a taxi to the resort. The taxi charged $80.00. The rental car was $130.00 for a week. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The pool was close for maintenance in low season. The french man who is working at front desk was far from professional. It took more than 1 hour to change room . Dinner restaurant we were asked what we want to eat before giving a menu....joke??? Every thing was so frustrating .. it was less than 3 star hotel. Dont' wast your money.Genuine Expedia guest review

"American enclave in French St. Martin"
This is a terrific hotel in romantic S. Martin. The hotel and grounds are fantastic. The majority of guests are American, as is the entire service and set-up (if you go to St. Martin to find some European flair, this is not the place, if you want to watch American baseball and football on your St. Martin vacation, this is the place). The breakfast is […] terrific, the onsite lunch and dinner options are not (incredibly slow service and mediocre - at best - food). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wonderful staff, great restaurants, amazing sandy beach! Awesome experience. Just be prepared to pay for taxis (expensive) if you want to visit anything else on the island.

It was our wedding […] anni while there and the hotel but a complimentary bottle of bubbly in the room! Nice touch! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The resort is beautiful and so is the beach. All staff were friendly and very helpful. It was a comfortable atmosphere and we enjoyed sitting in the garden area at night.

"A beautiful retreat"
The Radisson Blu is a beautiful quiet and secluded place in which one can rest and relax. It is located in Anse Marcel on the French side of the island between the mountains and right at the beach. The property gardens and surrounding areas are very well kept, you can see the butterflies enjoying the tropical flowers and listen to the singing of birds. […] We travel as a family and loved every moment of it. The staff was very friendly. The complementary buffet breakfast was great, loved the coffee! We ate at C Le Restaurant and everything was outstanding, the food, the service, the people. The pool; my son favorite place; is large with a zero entry and infinity edge. The beach is in a beautiful cove with different hues of blue and green. The room was comfortable and serve its purpose, to sleep, since there was so much to do and see. We rented a Jeep and went all over the island but were always so happy to have this special place to return at the end of the day. This was our second time in the island, the first time we stayed on the Dutch side and after spending six days in here, I have to say I'll be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice, exclusive hotel"
Recently went to the Radisson Blue Resort for a trip with my fiance. The resort is beyond beautiful. The beach that is part of the hotel was perfect, very exclusive and clean. The infinity pool was a complete blast. We went for July 4th weekend and the hotel was not crowded whatsoever, which was great. Probably would have been a different vibe if it […] was packed full of Spring Breakers, etc. We ate dinner at C Le Restaurant the first night we were there. If you can reserve a table by the water, it's a beautiful, romantic evening. The bar at that restaurant stays open late and we often went there for night-caps after going into Grand Case for dinner outings. The food on the French side of the island was impeccable, truly. I'm a complete foodie and haven't had seafood that good ever. Le Tastevin was our favorite restaurant. The service was like nothing I have ever experienced and the view of the ocean right below you, makes for a memorable evening. It's owned by two twin brothers who are perfectly attentive. Because the Radisson Blu is in it's own little area, it's about a $20 cab ride each way when you leave to go to Grand Case (just something to keep in mind, make sure to carry cash). Unless you want to see what commercialized life is like in St. Maarten, I'd recommend not going to Orient Bay. It came recommended by our concierge and was sort of a waste of time (although seeing the nude people made it worth it). Overall, Radisson Blu made for a beautiful, relaxing trip!
