The staff and customer service here is second to none. You are safe at all times. The staff makes sure of that by calling taxi's for you (which take less than a minute to get to you) and gets you in the place you need to be at any time. They are always around for all your needs. The rooms...

Loved this place, always felt safe. It was nice to be able to go to the Santa Fe too!! FYI the gym there is MUCH better. I read a lot about theft from the rooms, so I always used the safe. The one strange thing I found about this place..tips didn't seem to help with service. We took a water...

My husband and I stayed in this place from Feb 23 - Mar.1, 2012. We have been to Mexico in Nuevo Vallarta a while ago, but never a Riu Palace. I was reluctant at first to even go to Mexico again (because of all the stuff happening there) but I thought I would try "The Palace" because of reading about...

This was our first all-inclusive & we probably won't do one again. So, if you're a fan of the all-inclusive, you might like this place. It would have been more fun with a group of adults or family members - just not the best place for us and our kids. Value was good, but food was mediocre at best. Property...

The Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas is a very good selection for staying in Cabo. Our research and experience confirm that this is an unusually good value. As with other Riu Palace properties, the amenities and physical plant are impecable. The service people very well trained in being courteous. Food is well above expectation for an all inclusive resort. Our...

First let me say that the Riu Palace Los Cabos is a Beautiful property with great views of Lands End. Food is above average for AI. Problem is that the staff is poorly trained and do not provide adequate security for visitors. Our grown son has beaten up badly in the main lounge area by a fellow guest who had...

Very large property, but enough accomodations for many visitors. Decent room, but beds not so comfortable. Great all-inclusive for family, price, and activities.
