Overall, my fiance and I had a great experience here. Service was friendly and attentive, there were many options for meals and the food was good, the resort was clean and big. The best part of the resort is the many pools. We hung out at the "party pool" some days, but on days we wanted more quiet and relaxation,...

The view of Lands End is better than any of the other Cabo San Lucas hotels because it is further east then the other places. And when I say further east it mean by 1/2 mile but enough distance to really see the point. The service and attitude of the staff was better then other all inclusive places I've been...

Went for a wedding with friends in January and had the best vacation. Staff are extremely friendly, rooms are very spacious, clean and updated. The grounds are beautiful, the pools were amazing and so many of them - make sure to put out a towel early though or you won't get a chair. The food was great and there was...

We stayed at the Riu the week of October 4-11th. This was our first time vacationing to Cabo San Lucas. We knew a little bit about the resort prior to making our reservations because my parents had just recently stayed there in June. I remained optimistic after reading some negative reviews and was overall pleased with our trip. Not sure...

This was my first trip to Cabo, and my boyfriend's third time. It was one of the best experiences we had. The hotel took very good care of us, even with a room change for a better view. The food was great, and the reservations were easy to do for dinners. The grounds were beautiful, except the long walk from...

We went Oct 4-9 there was a total of 8 of us. We have been going there every other year for 6 years. We always bring a group with us. We even were married there and brought 25 people with us one yr. We are Riu Class Members and none of this did any good. We arrived at the resort...

If you are planning a wedding or family event, I would not recommend this resort. The staff cater to the drunks and their rowdiness kept us awake until 5am every night (party atmosphere and fire alarms constantly going off), and this was in building 7. Our daughter married at the resort and between the ceremony on the beach and the...

Read mixed reviews about the Riu before we went. Just got back on Monday, we were there for a week! The resort is well maintained and a very nice hotel. There are ALWAYS people cleaning, mopping, scrubbing, it is very impressive. Beautiful location, we were in building 7 which I read on here was the best building to be in...

I’m trying to be as objective as possible since in essence one incident ruined my 6 day trip. First the positive: rooms are clean, the pools are awesome and drinks and meals are excellent. I believe that overall, compared to what we paid, the value is good. What killed the trip for me was that fact that my daughters ipod...
