Short and sweet. Awesome place. Booked a jacuzzi suite with a terrace. Spent alot of time in my personal hot tub. No american beer. Awesome golf. Also for you car nuts check-out Wide Open Baja. Don't waste time at the restaurants at the resort, better food at the buffet.

We just got back from a 6 day trip. Pluses: The hotel grounds/pool are very nice and the staff is friendly. Drinks were good Minuses: Strong Mildew smell throughout hotel. I actually would have given the hotel 2 stars with this item included but will give them a break since I am assuming this is related to the recent heavy...

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.

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...
