Stay: May 11th-21st LOVED OUR STAY!!! The best way I can describe the RIU Palace is it was like an adult Disney Land. RIU staff was impeccable, everywhere, and all day long; cooking, cleaning, bartending, waiting, and entertaining us. The service was incredible with everyone happy, smiling, and friendly. To insure we continued to get good service we only had... More

My wife and I had a great stay with our friends at the Riu Palace. We stayed for 4 days over the Easter weekend. The first thing you should do is upgrade to an outdoor jacuzzi suite. The views from the suite are impressive. Our suite had a rooftop jacuzzi (accessed it by climbing the spiral staircase) and an in-room... More

Let me start by saying we had a great time at the Riu, we traveled with 2 other couples ages ranging from 37-50. The resort is beautiful and appearance well maintained, the staff were all very friendly and eager to please. The pools are awesome and range from loud and crazy to quiet and relaxing, you choose which pool best... More

First I will say the food is amazing at this resort from the buffets to the ala carte restaurants. Our travel agent specified it was our first anniversary and that we wanted to upgrade if possible. When we checked in there was no mention of either on our reservation. Their reservation system is very out-dated once you get there. It... More

Overall this is a nice resort. Like most have said, it is very clean and the grounds are well kept. I was pretty concerned with the reviews saying that they had been robbed while out of their rooms, but we had no problems with that. Just don't leave the safe key hidden in the room somewhere (I'm sure they know... More

I will stay at this resort EVERY time I visit Cabo!! I've been twice and both times were magnificent! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is excellent and downtown is not too far of a cab ride. Please stay here, the open air atmosphere is fabulous. Rooms and facility are kept immaculate!
