Leave you personal belongings in the safe, we were told. It only took 5 minutes leaving our IPhone on the charger, came back, it was gone as the attendant that refills the fridge walked out as we got there 1 minute to late. Hotel spoke with him, as I mentioned, too late. Besides that, beautiful, well kept grounds. Good food,...

Awesome holiday at this Riu! Enough space for all, as finding poolside chairs was never hard, bar service was great, and line ups for meals at breakfast and lunch were manageable. All our meals were excellent at the theme restaurants, with the Japanese venue being our fave. Lobby bar was great too, with great martinis and breathtaking views. Best thing...

This was our 6th Riu Palace vacation in 4 years (Cancun, Punta Cana, Puerto Vallarta, Aruba), so we knew to expect wonderful guest services, bountiful buffets, friendly staff, and exceptional cleanliness. We found all that but we weren't expecting such a beautiful resort or location. The TripAdvisor photos don't do it justice! Loved the size of the resort, and the...

This is nan excellent all inclusive hotel o located on the Northern edge of Cabo San Lucas. It is quite large but has two swimming/recreation areas to spread people out. Some of the speciality restaurants can get booked up early which can pose a problem with choice but that is the only negative problem be found.

Stayed in the swim out room on the opposite side of the pool area. Would of rather been on the side with the pool as that is where everything is happening. If you want privacy then the side I was on would be great. Cannot complain about anything. The food, service, drinks everything was great. The only thing would be...

This resort is fantastic with everything you need right here! The staff is by far the most courteous we've ever experienced. The cleanliness mentioned in other posts really held true - they are constantly cleaning everything! Our fav bartender was Esmerelda!!! Her smile and her genuine care for us made our trip!!! The ocean views from the Riu was absolutely...

Beginning with RIU Jalisco in 2006, we have been to RIU PALACE MEXICO (2007), RIU PALACE GUANACASTE Costa Rica, RIU Vallarta, RIU Palace Pacifico, RIU Mazatlan, and several repeats many times, and now RIU PALACE CABO SAN LUCAS (2017). We have been to RIU resorts for the fact that we like their cuisine and staff friendliness. Most of the employees...

We went here with friends for a wedding last year. The resort is beautiful and the views are excellent. The beach is nice, however, you can't swim here because of the massive waves and undertows. There are warnings not to swim as people have been pulled out and lost their lives. If you're ok to just hang out on the...

Amazing resort. The food was excellent except for the steak, granted I am from the beef capitol of the world, Omaha,NE. Housekeeping excellent. Wedding was beautiful. Take a heavy jacket for morning and night, I'm serious! Pools not heated but well maintained. Top shelf alcohol. Go do a dolphin excursion. It made my trip! Multiple restaurants but the main buffet...
