"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
Nice hotel, staff ok, location great. The lounge chair need to be updated.Genuine 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
Had a problem with reservation and management was very cooperative. Lovely setting, breakfast was good, beach nice. A taxi cab away from many restaurants in Grand Case. Staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine 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
"Private Beach Away from it All"
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. Room was nice but terrible view - think the worst in the hotel (loading dock rm #2202 east wing). Other than that nothing but good things and fond memories! 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. Would highly recommend this resort and will plan to stay again in the future. Didn't want to leave the island. Awesome vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very beautiful hotel."
I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It was very well maintained and everyone on the staff were wonderful. Great pool and bar area and a beautiful beach. Was very sad to have to leave.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"Great Week in St. Martin"
Great hotel, beautiful grounds, this was an excellent choice for our stay on St. Martin. Our stay included breakfast, which was a very fresh & complete buffet. We would recommend renting a car, great restaurants in Grand Case and Marigot are just a few minutes away. (BTW, the onsite restaurant was very good, we just like to get out and explore.) We […] would definitely recommend the resort, and would definitely come back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Paradise in St. Marteen"
This was my first vacation to an island and staying at the Radisson Blu was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was so accommodating. My husband needs a fan to sleep and they provided one the next day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful beach and pool!"
Great experience! Off-season meant the beach was uncrowded and the staff was very attentive. Snorkeling provided hours of entertainment!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awsome get away stay"
We loved the secluded location and resort environment. The staff in every department was very pleasant and thoughtful. Highly recommended for a true resort get away compared to other so called resorts.Genuine Hotels.com 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!

"Outstanding and Unique resort - Will be returning"
A beautiful property tucked away in the corner of a quite cove. Calm beach. No waves -- like a lake. We were taken care of well. Very up-market.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"amazing out-of-the-way resort"
If you are looking for a place that is beautiful but off the beaten path this is the resort for you! We didn't want to go to crowded/touristy spot but wanted a more isolated place and we found it here. The beach is small but beautiful and the water is calm. The food at the resort was great - the restaurant on the beach was fantastic. We will come here […] again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for total and complete rest."
Hotel is very nice but far away of town activities. You must have car if you are planning to stay here at least your intentions will be to have a complete rest and relax.Genuine Expedia guest review
The grounds were beautiful and the staff was friendly. All the food and drinks were delicious and the beach was stunning. It is a little hard to get to other parts of the island if you want to go exploring ($25 cab to the next town, Grand Case). However; there are a few restaurants and shops across the street and plenty of activities at the hotel if […] you would like to stay in one place. Truly a great stay.

Amazing location (perfect beach & ocean swimming), beautiful grounds & pool, "tired" rooms, ok service, mediocre breakfast. Very close drive to great gourmet restaurants in Grand Case area, as well as Orient Beach for daytime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel, perfect island feel."
Great island hotel with a beautiful pool and ocean. Short ride to Grand Case where there are many fine restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, beautiful location, courteous service"
It was our second stay at this place. There have been a lot of improvement after the most recent renovation. The only thing that remained the same was the great hospitality of the hotel staff at every level, and the wonderful service we were rendered in everything we needed. We'll most definitely go back to stay at Radisson Blu in St. Martin again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best hotel on the island, beautiful, safe"
The staff was very friendly, very helpful. The room was spotless, nicely air conditioned, and it was very quiet, even though the hotel was pretty full. My most favorite part was the breakfast buffet - spectacular assortment of fresh fruit, french pastries, bread, ham, cheese, eggs, omelettes, coffee, about 8 juices, a small fresh fruit smoothie, home […] made jams, dried fruits, cereals, granola, and more. I looked forward to it every day. The dinner we had could have had a salad included, or a few more vegetables. It did not quite match the excellence of the breakfast. We only ate dinner once, so didn't give it a chance. The hotel is situated at the entrance to a cay, situated between two small mountains, and there was a great beach bar there. The pool was about 3-4 pool lengths long, and wound around in wonderful ways. There was a great shallow area for children, with actual sand in their area. I would have liked to have easier access to maps and activities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Avery nice, quiet time at the beach"
Hotel was very nice, though quite distant from most everything else on the island. Service was very good, though prices at the bars and restaurants were definitely on the high side--we dined off premises for two dinners. Continental breakfast service was excellent, and we enjoyed tracking the local iguanas. Beach was quite pleasant, although small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Vacation at the Radisson Blu"
Great hotel on beautiful grounds. The pool area is fantastic as are the beach bar and C Le Restaurant for lunch. The beach is typical St. Martin - not fine white sand or huge expanse, but nice enough to enjoy the water and turquoise sea. I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples and families looking for a quiet getaway at a nice hotel with […] great amenities and staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff and service were excellent - friendly, professionally and attentative. Very impressed from breakfast to towel attendants to housekeepers to front desk. Grounds and amenities were excellent. well maintained. food was excellent - ate breakfast, some lunches and a dinner onsite. hard to fault the stay. our only concern was the shower door - it was […] a beautiful bathroom but we flooded the floor each shower. Not a big deal but may be bothersome to some (plus probably a maintenance issue down the road). would recommend and would return. we were thrilled. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great relaxing getaway"
This was the second Visit to St. Maarten for my wife and I. Our first visit was to a private Villa on the Dutch Side of the island. We enjoyed our stay at the Radisson Blu the best. The large pool and hot tub was fantastic. Very clean and quite. Always room at the pool and hot tub. The beach was great, very protected and good for swimming and play. […] A good mix of hotel guests, both European and American. Good buffet breakfast. Well keep property with good security. Close to Orient Bay and Grand Case Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been a much nicer experience"
The Good-- The hotel itself is nice, clean, modern and in a good location. The property is well maintained, it has a nice pool, and a nice beach. In general, I have no complaints about the grounds, property or buildings. The Bad-- The service is too slow, even accounting for "island time." Also, the food and drink were expensive and actually pretty […] bad. I could not get a single decent mixed drink the entire time I was there. All the drinks tasted syrupy and overly sweet. Their "specialty" cocktails were particularly bad. The food just wasn't good and it was so expensive. I know food at a resort in islands is going to be more expensive, and I accept that. But it was borderline inedible. To me, it sours the experience significantly if you are on the beach and your drink tastes like cough syrup and your lunch is bad.

"Great hotel for a family but eat dinner elsewhere"
The hotel was beautiful and the pool and beach were perfect for kids. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast buffet made mornings easy. My only complaints were: (1) the food for lunch and dinner was mediocre; and (2) the restaurant service at Le C was horrible. It was not uncommon to wait for 20-30 minutes for someone to take your order or bring […] a check. One night, it took an hour to get our order. My recommendation would be to stay, but plan to eat dinner elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
