First trip to Cabo and absolutely loved it! This was our first time at a Riu and the Riu Palace was a great resort and I would definitely go back. The hotel is in a great location 35 mins from the airport and a 5 minute cab ride downtown. To compare- we usually stay at all inclusives along the level...

We just returned from our second visit to the Riu Palace in Cabo and I thought it was more beautiful and a better place than I remember. The food was very good at the buffet with great variety. The Steak house, the Japanese and the Mexican a la carte restaurants were also very good. The hotel is clean and well...

Well to start off, I always read reviews but have never posted anything before. I decided it was time, especially due to all the mixed reviews I've read. My husband and I are in our early 30's and we had a group of 60 ranging from infants - 73 years old. We had our wedding at the Riu and it...

First warning I'd love to give is regarding the high octane sales pitches that are near impossible to escape at the airport (and any airport in Mexico for that matter). Do yourself a favor and DO NOT stop and speak with anyone until you get completely outside at the airport. They will all tell you they handle your transportation -...

Based on a solo traveler. This hotel is in a good location,close to the Cabo Marina Area.You can walk along the beach to the Marina and when you get there, there are many things to see and do. Once you get down to the beach from the hotel the angle can be very steep to walk along the ocean so...

One of the things that I find difficult when planning a vacation is the appropriate amount to set aside for the bar bill. Yes, I am a drinker and am happily dating someone who tries to keep pace. We are by no means alcoholics, but a trip away can come with a sizable allocation of spending money towards drinks. To...
