This resort is fantastic with everything you need right here! The staff is by far the most courteous we've ever experienced. The cleanliness mentioned in other posts really held true - they are constantly cleaning everything! Our fav bartender was Esmerelda!!! Her smile and her genuine care for us made our trip!!! The ocean views from the Riu was absolutely...

Beginning with RIU Jalisco in 2006, we have been to RIU PALACE MEXICO (2007), RIU PALACE GUANACASTE Costa Rica, RIU Vallarta, RIU Palace Pacifico, RIU Mazatlan, and several repeats many times, and now RIU PALACE CABO SAN LUCAS (2017). We have been to RIU resorts for the fact that we like their cuisine and staff friendliness. Most of the employees...

We went here with friends for a wedding last year. The resort is beautiful and the views are excellent. The beach is nice, however, you can't swim here because of the massive waves and undertows. There are warnings not to swim as people have been pulled out and lost their lives. If you're ok to just hang out on the...

Amazing resort. The food was excellent except for the steak, granted I am from the beef capitol of the world, Omaha,NE. Housekeeping excellent. Wedding was beautiful. Take a heavy jacket for morning and night, I'm serious! Pools not heated but well maintained. Top shelf alcohol. Go do a dolphin excursion. It made my trip! Multiple restaurants but the main buffet...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Riu Palace in 2016 very much. We had an excellent room, the food was superb, the resort large enough to provide a level of comfort one would need whether or not you are with family or just an adult couple. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful but not necessarily...

I will preface by saying I was here just here for a day. I was on a cruise and purchased an all inclusive day pass. That being said, this property did not meet my expectations. Front desk staff were really nice and helpful no problem there. The grounds were nice and clean which includes the one restaurant we went into...

We just got back from staying at the Riu Palace last night. Let's start with the positive...The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. Everything was very clean and we found all of the staff to be very helpful, friendly, and we received excellent service. But the food and drinks were absolutely HORRIBLE and do not do Cabo justice at...

When you register at the hotel, they don't tell you about any activities, parties or ask if you want to tour of the amenities. We didn't even get an explanation about where are rooms were located on the property without asking. My room overlooked the main pool where there is a man with an extremely loud and annoying voice talking...

Nice location, two pools one for the party goers and another for pure relaxation. Food was like any other all inclusive. Rooms were clean with the exception that the Tv was so outdated. However, I believe they were renovating the hotel. Price was good and couldn't really complain over service.

The location of the resort is great and we enjoyed our time. The service was good and people were very friendly. The draw back on the place is that it seems old...outdated and just was not as nice as we had hoped. The linens (towels and sheets) were rough, cheap and uncomfortable. The rooms were ok. Nothing special about them....
