Overall we had a great experience. The resort location in a cove between two mountains on the sea was very romantic; the view was spectacular. Our accommodations were lovely and comfortable (we had a suite facing the marina). All of the staff were friendly and helpful. This is a great resort for couples of any age, including those with children. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets provided excellent choices and quality food, and their menus changed daily. From our perspective, it was far superior having the dinner buffet than eating at the other restaurants on the property, which were disappointing. That said, this didn't spoil a wonderful, relaxing experience. The selection of beverages, including wine and liquor, was great. It is a very quiet all-inclusive resort, which suited us perfectly. No parties are allowed. This might not suit some, but it worked for us very well. The spa experience was excellent. We enjoyed getting Swedish massages. We made this trip, in part, to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hotel management sent a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries to our room on her birthday. We were pleasantly surprised and delighted by this gesture. We just came back to NYC yesterday and are already dreaming about our return to Riu Palace, St. Martin, Anse Marcel. Merci Beaucoup. A bientot.

Only spent a couple of nights having been a regular at Oyster Bay Beach Resort for many years....the room- a studio- was surprisingly large and well appointed with a full stove and full-sized fridge...our deck area was facing a noisy area (diesel fuel oil loading), but I was not disappointed given the brevity of our stay....excellent sound-proofing from the patio doors....an excellent property, beach restaurant that I would heartily recommend...beach staff and reception staff is professional and helpful ("Could my wife and I get another beach chair?"...."maintenance should check the looseness of the toilet bowl tank and leaking from the shower head")...I saw a number of children on the beach -surprisingly clean sand- and by the pool, so we will keep this in mind for future visits with our grand children....the primary drawback of the resort is that it is in a very congested Simpson Bay area...also the resort uses the Royal Palm gym which is simply not that easy to get to without using the resort shuttle....
