The best part of this hotel was the beach which is why we chose it...excellent location, calm, clear beautiful water. The pool was nice too. Bars had good drinks. Buffets had good food with plenty of options but I think they could have done better with fish selections and preparation. Our room was very clean and well stocked with toiletries and beverages. We really enjoyed the entertainment at night. Overall we had a great stay. Riu does mention that Riu 'Palace' is used for branding purposes which is true. This is not the gigantic palace type of place one would expect from a Riu Palace but this is a great smaller type of place to come for relaxation. It felt more like a high end beach cottage type of resort. That being said, although we loved our stay and it was a pretty place, it was a bit pricey. Still, I would recommend it to others; just go when you can get a deal.
The hotel sits on the ridge above Anse Marcel with breathtaking views. Anse Marcel is a very safe area on the island within easy driving distance from Grand Case, Orient Bay and Pinel Island. This is a small hotel with very friendly and helpful stuff. Every one of our minor concerns were promptly addressed (e.g., broken coffee maker). They drive you to close destinations (such as nearby restaurants and the beach) if you wish. The hotel room we had was very spacious and comfortable with the most beautiful view of the valley below. You can eat at the hotel, if you wish; they serve a continental breakfast (we eat elsewhere).
The Bleu Emeraude is a delightful B&B type residence. Mya and Fredrick are excellent hosts and very helpful with dinner reservations and other task that require a more fluent tongue. The rooms are spacious and accommodating. A small kitchen is great for preparing lunch and dinner when you feel like staying in. You'll have to make a run to the market down the street to stock up for that though. The daily fresh breakfast consisting of croissant, fruit, orange juice and coffee is a great start to the day. I recommend enjoying this on your balcony and listening to the waves wash on shore. The beach is pleasant and welcoming. Crystal blue water and fine sand beaches make it very difficult to pack up and leave for the day. The short walks up and down the beach row give you plenty to experience. The beach front cafes are a happening spot for charter boats to stop for lunch. Stop by and have a drink around noon to chat with other vacationers.

"Nice hotel close to the beach and to restaurants"
Very pleasant stay. Minutes away from the Grand Case airport yet very quiet. The beach is 2 minutes away, literally. A choice of restaurants down the street, I loved it.
Hotel is clean and my room was nice, small and basic but comfortable. There is no TV on the room, but thatdid not bother me. I'd definitely go back there.
Considered the restaurant capital of the Caribbean, Grand-Case features more than two dozen eateries on its mile-long main street. The town’s low-slung Creole architecture evokes the feel of France’s other New World possessions, such as New Orleans. Open to the public, the Grand Case Beach Club offers two beaches.
