We stayed at the Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas 5nights/6days. 7/3/2012-7/8/2012. EPIC was our arranged hotel shuttle and it was great. Once we got to the hotel we were greeted with welcome drinks :) *Always a plus. Our rooms were not ready ( arrived at 1pm ) and we had to walk around for about 2 hours until they...

Let me know if you have any questions about the Riu Palace. The location was great. About a 1.5 mile walk on the beach to downtown Cabo San Lucas. It's a $1 USD bus ride each way. The beach is great. Of course there is no swimming in the ocean except for a few spots in Cabo. You can take...

I read a lot of the reviews on here before deciding to go to Riu Palace and decided to ignore the cautions of theft. Stupid on my part. Here's the thing, if you've ever been to any "nice" all inclusive resort you're bound to be dissapointed as I was in comparison but for a newcomer the place is nice. The...

They upgraded us to an ocean view room. We were told we needed to make reservations for dinner ahead of time, we arrived later in the day and...

Stayed for 8 days and the experience was 9 1/2 out of ten. The lobby is stunning, check in/out was a breeze. They gave us a first floor room and we immediately wanted an upgrade to a higher floor. They were okay with that and no extra charges. We received a cute animal made from bathroom towels. We gave a...
