My husband and I have just returned from 2 weeks at this amazing resort! I can honestly say this was one of our best vacations.

We just returned from a week at the Riu Palace in Los Cabos. We had a great stay and were treated with exceptional weather. I would have given this review a 4.5 star only because of the fact it was really difficult to find a way to stay away from second hand smoke. The pools were great, the facility was...

We stayed at the Riu in August 2011 - from the time we arrived the staff was amazing. I have never met friendlier people in the world. The entertainment staff was truly exceptional!! I think I miss them more than the amazing views and weather. The wait staff in every restaurant was beyond kind and helpful, the staff serving drinks...

We spent a couple of nights at the Riu and here's what we found: The stay started out poorly. We reserved a room with a king bed. Instead, we got a room with two double beds pushed together. We asked to switch and got to switch (elapsed time: 30 mins) to a room with a king bed. The people at...
