A newly renovated hotel, with some nice changes! The best is they dropped the early morning reservations required for the a la carte restaurants. First come first serve, and they give you a buzzer/flasher if you didn't get in on first seating. The location is good, about a 20 minute walk along the beach to downtown marina. Very clean resort...

I just got back from my second stay at this RIU palace in Cabo and I will continue to go back. Absolutely love it! I ate at the buffet every night because one night my boyfriend and I decided to try the Japanese restaurant and sadly it was horrible. The service was bad and the food took over an hour....

Me and the wife have been coming to this hotel for past 6 years, and we got married here 3 years ago. I never regarded the palace as a 5 star, but a solid 4.5. Now that is dropping quickly, the palace recently re-opened after being closed for a few months of renovations. Not empresses with the direction the hotel...

This was our first time at an RIU resort and the Palace in Cabo San Lucas was a great place to start! We haven't been to many all inclusive resorts, but we've taken cruises and have traveled pretty extensively. What matters most to us at a place like this are the beach and pool areas, the comfort and cleanliness of...

We have stayed at several Riu Palaces in Mexico. I found this one to be one of my least favorites. While some renovations were good (bathrooms), the lobby atmosphere is terrible. No one sits there. No offer of drinks at all in the lobby area (like PV) very noisy at night. Screaming, hollering , doors slamming Food was ok. Service...

This was my first time staying at an all inclusive and I've heard mixed reviews about the experience. I must say that the bar has been set very high for my future travels :) The property is very well designed and maintained (I hear they recently renovated it). They have two identical pool areas, one being the 'quiet' pool where...

We visited last month, and arrived the day the hotel re-opened after completing their upgrades and renovations. There were still quite a few rooms not done, but the main part of the hotel was back in full swing. This was our third time here, and we loved all the changes since the last time. Other than that all the venues...

We spent a week at the RIU Palace Cabo, in January 2017. It is the third RIU Palace resort that we've stayed at, and it is our favorite of the three. The resort had recently been through a major renovation, and it shows. The property is updated and has a fresh, clean appearance. Speaking of clean, the staff was constantly...

My wife and I had a great stay last year for our anniversary and thought we would come again. I was in contact with the hotel weeks ago to get a room in the same tower as last year it was quite and relaxing and was expecting it on arrival, that's when the problems started. We have been given a...

The food here was great!!! Not so much the Japanese restaurant but all of the other restaurants and the buffet were very good. The pools were fun but there were a lot of children here. If you're in your 20s like myself I wouldn't recommend going here because there were not many people our age to socialize with. Riu Santa...
