Girls trip. Myself and my best friend visited this resort hoping for fun in the sun and some relaxation. Great food and fabulous service was top notch! Daily maid service was just ok. They forgot to clean our room after we contacted them twice and when we called for them to come open our safe as it wasn't opening they...

We booked last minute and solely based on me asking my travel agent if it was at least 4 stars and a good price, so you cannot have many expectations of grandeur based on that. However a couple items did bother me and because of that I do not think we would return, unless for a very good deal. The...

Let me start by saying that I have been going to Cabo since the early 80's so this is not my first Rodeo.I wanted to stay where I could go into the water and my husband thought an All Inclusive sounded good. Both ideas did not pan out. You can not wade out into the water. The guests are told...

We just returned January 15,2017 from a weeks stay at the Riu Palce. This resort was excellent. The property is very well kept. There is always staff cleaning. Our room was ocean view from the center of hotel overlooking the pool and the ocean. The view was great. We ate at the Japanese restaurant,the Indian Restaurant and the steak house....

This My second trip to this hotel and only got better than the first time. They have really raised a bar that was already high. I have been to a Sandals resort and this place gives them a good run for their money if not better. The staff really goes out of their way to make sure every drink, meal...

The saying 'you get what you pay for' is so true here. I feel like this was such a good place for the $ and the entire complex was spotless. I saw associates cleaning all the time starting with the sunrise (which is NOT to be missed). The food was good and service was wonderful. The only negative is that...

Just returned from 4 days at the remodeled Riu Palace. Excellent hotel. We paid for garden view and it was a garden next time will pay for ocean view. Ask for the rooms on the activity side of the hotel as the music and the day to day activities are entertaining and fun. The buffet was good food. Boiled shrimp,...

We normally do cruises, but decided to give Cabo a chance. The resort was excellent. We didn't like the restaurant restrictions, but that seems to be par for the course at all-inclusives. The food at the buffet was tasty and there was a very wide variety. The restaurants were hard to book but never seemed full. Staff was very helpful....

I helped my son and his fiance with the planning of their destination wedding in Cabo and chose RIU Palace, in large part, because of the good experience we had previously with RIU Palace in Playa Del Carmen. We were very disappointed by the poor service-related experience we encountered. It started with the bride and groom's reservations; they said they...

A newly renovated hotel, with some nice changes! The best is they dropped the early morning reservations required for the a la carte restaurants. First come first serve, and they give you a buzzer/flasher if you didn't get in on first seating. The location is good, about a 20 minute walk along the beach to downtown marina. Very clean resort...
