Radisson Resorts's private beach was very quite and nice. My husband and I had good time. We rented a car and that was good choice because we went to dutch side for shopping at Phillipsburg, had water sports activity and went to a nice restaurants. My hotel room was clean but some blubs were blown.
Concierge service was great. When I asked about tour programs, I've got all the information and even booked a tour for us.

We arrived not knowing what to expect based on reviews we'd read. Simply beautiful, clean and friendly staff all around. The beach was spectacular, our room spacious and very clean and the hotel in general just beautiful & tropical. Julian & Claude were personable and enjoyed every minute with them. This is a quiet resort, tucked away from the hustle & bustle of the Dutch side and you will need a car to get anywhere. Although on the French side, the entire staff speaks fluent English so don't be intimidated. Breakfast is included with your stay and it's excellent and served in an open air restaurant just off the pool area. The only issue we had was that the dinner restaurant was closed for renovation and we were not informed that prior to our arrival so it forced us to go out for dinner every night although the kitchen was open so you could eat at the hotel bar or still order room service. If you want a room with a pool or beach view, you must pay up from the standard room. Standard rooms have no view what so ever. All in all, we had a fantastic experience at the Radisson Blu and would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary here. And we couldn't have been happier with our accomodations. The hotel was secluded and extremely safe. The setting of the hotel was absolutely beautiful. Large green hills on three sides and on the fourth side was open water. Very clean, very comfortable, very modern rooms. The hotel lobby was open-aired and relaxing with a nice little bar there and a great bartender named Patricio. The staff was friendly and very accomendating. The Infinity pool was great. Nice gym and spa. The restaurants there are good for breakfast and lunch, but overpriced for dinner. Your much better off taking a ten minute drive to Grand Case and going to anyone of the many gourmet restaurants there for dinner. There is also two nice little restaurants right across the street from the hotel. Overall though, it was an awesome experience and would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for relaxation, gourmet meals and sun and fun!

We visited the Raddison Blu on St. Martin for 7 nights in August 2012. The hotel is set in a little hideaway on the French side of the island. It looks the part from the outside, and the rooms are clean, well maintained and comfortable, although it must be said that the communal areas leading to the rooms have all the charm of a high rise tower block in Clapham.
The staff were odd. They seemed genuinely shocked when a guest (me) spoke to them in a friendly way to pass the time of day, and many responded well. That did not stop others from being wierd at best and inhospitable and unkind at worst. Take the receptionist who checked us in telling us not to even touch anything in the minibar or we would be charged. Traverlling with a young child, that cannot always be guranteed. The next day, another guest informed us the hotel would rent a mini fridge to guests for twenty Euros a week. The same receptionist told us the service had been discontinued. A visit to a different receptionist 10 minutes later led to a fridge being installed in our room 10 minutes later!. Weird. The electric iron in our room exploded knocking out the power to our room. They restored power in a few minutes, but the replacement iron took two days and three requests to achieve.
The sleep number beds were a disaster. You can set your side of the bed in a range from 5 to 55. We set everything equally each night, but each morning one side had completely deflated to 5 resulting in a pool of humanity in a ravine down the center of the bed. I haven't had an experience with a bed since the 1980's when my wife and I bought a water bed. After that we just drifted apart.
Then, take the strange case of the female staff member at breakfast who, depsite their being several tables free in the light and breezy part of the dining room, seemed to take extraordinary pleasure in trying to seat my family in the darkest, stuffiest part of the room staring at a blank wall. I told her what she could do with her attitude on each occasion of course, but it became a running joke every morning. Again... Weird.
If you are travelling with children and live in hope that the advertized "Kids Club" will afford you some quality time together as a couple, then think again. recently introduced charges (it used to be included# mean that no-one goes anymore, and even if you are prepared to pay #as I was) the absence of other children means you would have to be cold hearted to deposit your child in this dull room with a disinterested minder.
The beach is great however, though I could live without the ugly steel security fence running along the back. The water is clear and calm and there are water sports available.
This is the low season to be fair, but there is absolutely nothing to do by way of entertainment in the evenings. Make you own fun as we did.
So in summary, we had a great time due in large part to the quality of the location. Our nice experience was in spite of the staff rather than because of them. Go there, but arm yourself with caustic wit and assertiveness. You are going to need it.
