My wife and I live in St. Martin six months of the year. Last year our son and his fiancée visited us on several occasions and decided that they would like to be married on the island.
In visiting possible facilities, we chose your facility for the wedding and could not have been more pleased.
We had approximately 50 people for a rehearsal dinner on the beach. The food and DJ were great and the setting was absolutely fabulous. The wedding was the next day. In the courtyard looking toward the beach, they recited their vows as the sun was setting and a classical guitarist played in the background. To say it was very special was an understatement.
After the ceremony, we moved to the pool area for a cocktail party and then to the ballroom where we had 65 guests. Again, the band was amazing. They rocked the house playing a diversity of music that made everyone want to get up and dance.
The dedication to detail made this truly a memorable experience. We have been getting calls, letters and emails from our guests saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
I must compliment you on the quality of your management and staff and thank you all for making this experience, as my new daughter-in-law said, once in a lifetime.
As we live on St. Maarten, we are used to many beautiful places on the island and are in ways spoiled with the lovely views found at various locations. That is why we wanted our marriage to be somewhere that was not only beautiful but special too. The Radisson in Anse Marcel was just the spot, as it felt like we were having our wedding on our own private island. The hotel has a grand entrance, a nice walkway to the beach and the location for the party by the pool was excellent. And just as important, there was more than enough parking for all the guests.
The beach wedding was timed just as the sun set giving us the romantic atmosphere we wanted and the tent by the pool for the dinner was set up to our wishes. We were very happy with the professional way the Radisson helped us in organizing our wedding, in suggesting details we may have overlooked and with the service on the wedding itself. Looking back at the pictures of the wedding, we can only say that we made the right choice.

My husband and I live in New York and have been visiting the island for years now. After our first stay at the Radisson, we knew we wanted to get married there and let me tell you, hands down it was the best decision we could have made!
We had 96 people from all over the country fly out for this event and for most, it was their first time to the island. The staff at the hotel did an absolutely amazing job at making all our guests feel welcome and gave everyone a truly unique Caribbean experience. We had several events for all our guests lined up and the hotel did an outstanding job at executing them. Their professionalism and thoroughness was truly impressive and greatly appreciated by everyone.
We had the rehearsal dinner in the Le Marché with a calypso band playing in the background. The atmosphere was both lively and intimate and it proved to be the perfect setting for all our guests to enjoy a slideshow that was made for my husband and I. Afterwards, the party moved to the beautiful hotel lobby that inevitably became the unofficial party bar for our group that week... by the time we left, we had found a new friend in Claude, our bartender! Such an amazing time!
The wedding itself was incredible and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The staff did an excellent job at setting up the tent on the beach as well as a gorgeous floral arch we had made for the occasion. The timing was perfect as I walked down the aisle to a beautiful sunset and a steel drum band playing softly in the background. Afterwards, the guests moved to C Le Restaurant and it got wild! The DJ was absolutely phenomenal and kept the party going all night and the food was abundant and delectable!
I don't know if there are enough words to describe what a sensational time the hotel provided for us and our guests. To this day our friends tell us it was the best wedding they'd been to. As my mother put it, I had a "dream wedding" and that would not have been possible without the hotel's expertise on destination weddings combined with their genuine hospitality. Thank you so much for making our wedding such an awesome and unforgettable experience! We can't wait to renew our vows there!

In the shadows of two beautiful lush green mountains, the Radisson Blu Resort was the setting for our special event. The destined time of our wedding was eight o'clock. Just beforehand, as if God was putting His seal of approval on our special occasion, he sprinkled a light shower across the small valley. This was a sign to nature and so the beautiful gardens filled with flowers opened up as a choir of birds began to sing. Words can barely describe this magnificent experience. It was unlike any other in our lives.
The hour of our nuptials arrived and while we were caught up in the moment and the ceremonial activities, the staff of the Radisson handled the details with ease leaving us to enjoy the celebration. Their service was top notch.
Our wedding was like a dream and it was in an enormous way due to the Radisson Blu Resort's staff, particularly our bridal consultant who turned our dream into a reality.

I wanted to write to you to let you know how pleased we were with the service at the Radisson Blu over the last week. The entire staff did an excellent job ensuring that our guests had an outstanding stay. Every single guest expressed how impressed they were with the resort and its staff. The wedding ceremony and the reception were both great. Even the rain couldn't stop us from having a good time.
I particularly wanted to let you know how impressed we were with Alexia's work. She was very welcoming, professional, and helpful throughout the entire process from planning through our entire stay. With the rain storm on Saturday, the reception could have really been a mess, but it wasn't. Everyone had a great time and I believe that is largely due to Alexia. We were able to enjoy ourselves and relax feeling confident that she had everything under control from day one. The set up on Friday and Saturday, the flowers, the music, and everything was perfect. All of which was left up to Alexia's judgment. She did an excellent job. Planning and executing a wedding is stressful for everyone involved (especially when there is rain involved), but Alexia allowed us to remain calm and enjoy the company of our guests without stress.
I would also like to commend Patricio, who did a great job behind the bar for us all week. Everyone loved him.
We will certainly tell anyone who asks, and probably some that don't ask, how great our experience was with the Radisson Blu. We will have lasting memories of our stay and our wedding and truly appreciate all that your staff did to make it happen.
Many thanks and best regards,
Jason L. K.
