We just returned from 7 nights at the Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas. The resort is absolutely beautiful! Check-in was simple and quick. Our oceanview suites for our group of 4 women were perfect. We had 2 suites right next to each other. They aren't exactly adjoining rooms, but they have a shared vestibule from the mail hallway, which...

I'm not usually a fan of all inclusive,but this was a quickly planned trip with a couple of friends to get some sunshine. The resort was beautiful and we were pleasantly surprised at how good our food was. Several ethnic restaurants to choose from all of which were fantastic ( Indian food was our favourite). Again, not a fan of...

Is it possible to stay in a Riu Palace and not have an enchanting time? I would stay in a Riu anywhere and everywhere, I would live in a Riu. As for Cabo, I enjoyed other parts of Mexico more Cabo isn't quite as pretty and it's a little pricey but still a fabulous time

I am currently writing this review from the balcony of the RIU Palace, and ALMOST everything about this resort is A+. The food is amazing, the pools are fantastic, the gym had everything you could need -you just needed to be a bit creative at times, the shows were entertaining and EVERY SINGLE employee of the hotel was friendly and...

So we are currently at this resort. We picked this resort and paid the extra cost with the express purpose of avoiding spring breakers. We were told on the bus from the airport that they did not allow spring breakers at the palace and the hotel policy confirmed the same. We have absolutely no problem with the spring break tradition...

Had a wonderful time at the Riu Palace Cabo. The service was great. All of the staff were friendly, attentive and responsive. I'd have to say the best I've experienced so far. My only complaint was check-in. I was told that the manager had decided to upgrade us to a room with a Jacuzzi which I thought was great since...

PROS: -hot -ample beach chairs CONS: -very noisy, hotel adjacent to Sante Fe (a lot of drunken youth) -no hotel management or security after 10:00pm. If emergency occurs, you're out of luck till morning -only one towel bar at the opposite end of the hotel. very inconvenient -not the cleanest room service. floors were always dirty. previous guest underwear under...

The Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas is an AWESOME resort. We have been to Cabo several times and stayed at other resorts and found the Riu Palace to be the place we will definitely return to again. We had an ocean front room, it was excellent and the housekeeping staff did a great job. The resort is immaculate. The...

We picked the Riu Palace again this year as a new tradition. We liked the bathroom remodel and the additional restaurant (Indian). I wish they would give us the room we had chosen and paid for without having to be moved the second day of our trip. They tried to put us in a room with no ocean view to...
