This was our 2nd trip to this resort in the past 3 years. It is absolutely amazing!!! People who have complaints must be high maintenance to say the least. This resort is clean as can be. The staff works 24 hours to make sure it's spotless. Our room was superb & the cleaning lady always surprised us with little towel...

My husband and I vacationed at the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas, Mexico from September 2, 2012 to September 8, 2012. The resort was very beautiful, well kept, and had very good service. We ate at 4 of the 6 restaurants available at the resort and were pleased with all of them. The food quality was good and the food...

Mold and Mildew smell was horrific! The website lies and says they are on medano beach, only swimmable beach, not true! The beach is closed and the swimmable beach is over a mile down the beach. Upon check in when you try to reserve restaurants they say most are booked, then you go there and 3/4 of the restaurant is...

I don't have a security issue to report, rather, I saw way too much "dumb tourist" actions that can potentially make you a mark as easy prey. The safe has a key-don't hide that key In a bonehead place like under the mattress or in the pocket of your clothes hanging up. Get smart, put 5 minutes of thought into...

The resort was clean and well maintained. There was a mildew smell that was not pleasant however in the rooms and the flies were plentiful. The food at the buffets was mediocre at best...small thing every single day. The process of making dinner reservations was somewhat monotonous. If you don't go the very first day of your trip, you will...

I just got back from my stay in Riu Palace in Los Cabos and I was impressed with the service and accommodations but was very disappointed in management. There was a storm that hit the area the day we landed which brought with it an infestation of mosquitoes and flies (nothing Riu could do to prevent that). Mosquitoes and flies...

This place was the worst but we made the best of it all. The hotel has a ton of rain the weekend before we arrived which caused one of the two pools to be closed for our entire stay. The hotel did not disclose any of this info when we booked (we booked 2 days before arriving) and again did...

We stayed at the place next to it before coming here, the difference is worth every penny! The food was superb! The drinks were amazing! The entertainment was great!
