I just got back from Cabo, we stayed at the RiuPalace. I went with four friends. One of my very dearest friend had lost her husband in October. So you could say this trip was In memory of Byron. The place was immaculate. We had a perfect ocean view. We stayed in room 2057. We ate in all the restaurants...

We stayed at the Riu Palace from Feb. 11th to the 18th. The requirements for this trip is that it had to be affordable, the room needed to be swim out/up, it had to be 5 star, and it needed to be in a place that was zika free. Sounds easy, but it's not. Cabo is as close to zika...

Our experience with Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas was incredible. It is a beautiful property with many wonderful amenities. The staff are all very friendly and gracious and the housekeeping is spotless - everything shined. The food was wonderful and we really liked the fact that even though there were themes each night, for those who did not like that...

We had a great visit here and truly enjoyed our meals. Several of the smaller restaurants open at 6:30 and a line starts 15 minutes before that. Krystal is especially nice and must not be missed. Room 4026 was on the top floor and has a great view and Jacuzzis both inside and out on the nice balcony. There are...

We have stayed at other Riu's but never at the Palace. So worth upgrading! Food was wonderful and staff very attentive. Went during February break and didn't have to contend with crazy young adults. 2pools. One with music and activities and the other just peaceful. The views around Los Cabo's friends m hotel are spectacular! Looking forward to coming again!

We spent a week in February at the Riu Palace upon a recommendation by a friend. The setting was beautiful but be aware that swimming in the ocean is not advised as the undercurrent is strong. The room was clean and comfortable. We did stay in the wing of the hotel that overlooked the "louder" of the two pools and...

We spent about 6 days in an Oceanview room! Our view was good, not great. We were also near the stage, so if there was a show it was pretty loud in our room. That didn't bother us because we went out almost every night. The rooms were very clean, always stocked mini fridge. They'd even bring new towels every...

We just got back from a week vacation at the Riu Palace Cabo. This is a beautiful resort. The staff are all so friendly and do a great job cleaning the resort. The restaurants are very good especially Krystal. The manager at Krystal, Mike is amazing. Can't wait to come back.

The resort is beautiful, rooms are spacious and the food is plentiful. Everything about this resort is wonderful except for the beach and the ocean in front of the resort. You cannot swim in the water-it is just too wild. My husband enjoys taking long walks on the beach but this is really difficult as the sand is very coarse...
