And the staff was truly the best we have experienced. Its Mexico, the beds are not going to be perfect, there may be a little smell. Come...

We have previously stayed at Riu Palace in Playa Del Carmen and the Riu Playacar. This was our 9th trip to AI in Mexico, 1st time in Cabo. The property is gorgeous, expansive and very clean. The service we experienced from check in until check out was excellent. No request was turned down, and everything was completed in a timely...

So, here's the deal -- I am used to going to Hawaii and staying at my aunt's house, which is a very different sort of tropical experience....less party, more relaxing. If you are an all-inclusive pro or love the vibe of the main strip of CSL, then my review will probably not interest you. If you are unfamiliar with all-inclusive...

My cousin and I stayed at this resort for 7 days, and let me tell you that we were very disappointed with the Riu Palace. The Riu chain is supposed to be one of the best, but this resort is far from a "5 star". I travel every year and this was the worst resort that I have ever stayed...

This was our first time in Cabo San Lucas. We did a lot of research before booking the hotel. The reviews on TripAdvisor were mixed but very helpful. In the end, we made the right choice and would go back to this hotel. The staffs were friendly and spoke English. The service in the restaurants and bars was great. They...

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas. The beautiful beach was super clean, and although the water was deep, if you can tread water it's definitely swim-able. The food selection was great, notably the seafood. The a la carte restaurants didn't have amazing food, but the service was good. Actually the service throughout...

I have stayed at Riu's before in Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta so I didn't have many reservations when I chose this hotel to stay at despite the complaints listed below. Almost all of the 650-ish rooms at the Riu Palace have some sort of pleasant view with at least a small glimpse of the ocean/beach. The hotel looks...
