If I could give a negative rating I would. My husband and son tried to get dinner, they were told that all the restaurants are all booked up because they are at 98% full at the hotel. They were told that if they wanted to eat they could eat at the buffet. There a steak house and it was taken...

We would definitely return. Great Resort! All inclusive is the way to go. Food was a little "cruise-like", but Overall trip was fabulous . View From oceanfront room was great. Visit the Marina - lots of great shopping.

We stayed at the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas, from Friday, July 13 to Friday, July 20, 2012. We were a group of 3 couples. We are no strangers to the Riu chain of hotels and have been visiting Mexico for the past 14 years (almost exclusively staying at a Riu hotel). On arrival, our room was not ready so...

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Palace for our honeymoon. We had been exicted for this trip as we have had several friends stay here and loved it. Upon arrival to the resort you are greeted with delicious drinks. Check-in was a bit of a wait and then we had a several HOUR wait to get our room,...

My husband and I stayed at the RIU Palace for 4 days after 3 weeks of travel around USA and Mexico. We arrived a day late which was a real shame as we were stuck in Mexico City overnight. However, when we arrived our room was not ready! We were allowed to use the facilities, and have lunch for an...

We spent 8 days here last January. Cabo is nice, but the Carribean is much better. You cannot swim in the ocean and the sand is difficult to walk on. Downtown is downright creepy. This hotel is beautiful. It was nice that we could use the sister hotel, Santa Fe next door too. We followed a tip on Trip Advisor...

Went for my son's wedding. Beautiful beautiful location! Perfectly set with a view of Los Arcos as background for photos. Quick cab ride (or water taxi for the braver folk) to Cabo San Lucas or a walk up the beach to town (45 minutes or so). Service was excellent --- very friendly and happy to help with whatever! The wedding...

This was our first time staying at a Riu Resort. If you like large scale resort properties that are all inclusive & not crazy like college spring break- this place is for you. With lots of poolside & water activities offered during the day & live off-broadway like performances at night, there is never a shortage of things to do....

This place is a SCAM.. you book a room with Ocean View and to them, all rooms are "Ocean View!" So I complained to staff but they said all their rooms were booked... I had to wait the next day to actually get the room we were "supposed" to have. You also need to call house keeping to get your...

Stayed at this resort about a year ago and everything was excellet so I'm going back to get married on the beach. The service was top notch. Pools were wonderful and it has a great view of the ocean from just about everywhere.
