My fiancé and I stayed at this resort for a destination wedding last January. We stayed for a total of four nights, and we enjoyed every second of it. From the incredibly friendly and helpful hotel staff, to the stunning views and the delicious food, everything was absolutely exceptional.

My family and I go to Cabo every year. We've stayed at the Riu palace three or four times and we live it. There is so much to do and the service is amazing. It is also very kid friendly. Definitely recommend it!

We love it there - the hotel was very spanish style and had beautiful tile and wrought iron and the most beautiful open air lounge with a gorgeous view out to El Arco. We love the restaurants - but mostly the place down near the beach... More

The view this hotel has is absolutely breath taking. I would usually get a late and sit in the lobby and watch the view on afternoons and man it was so relaxing. Santa Fe is definitely more fun cuz it's less "Palace" like but I like the resort grounds of the Palace more. Food was great, it's AI so don't... More

What a fantastic place to visit... This had to be the most well kept, clean hotel I have ever stayed at! The maintenance people are continually cleaning & upgrading this property. The pools, rooms and meals including the Ala Carts were fantastic! Highly recommend this as a safe place to stay in Mexico!

The beach sucks cannot swim in it at all. Food at the palace property is your typical Mexican fare. The Santa Fa next door was a lot more fun. I would not return to this property not that great for The price they charge

Fun atmosphere, beautiful grounds, entertainment. The pools are the best. Right on the beach and a quick drive to the Marina and restaurants. Great customer service. All in all, one of the best in Cabo.
