I recently stayed here for a wedding. When we walked in we were greeted with welcome drinks and the hospitality never ended the entire trip. The staff is very accommodating, especially the wait and bar staff! We loved them! We stayed in a junior suite with a garden view. The view was breath taking because the grounds are beautifully kept.... More

My husband and I stayed here 5/2-5/8/12. Thanks to the tips from this site we had no problems with the timeshare sharks at the airport. They tried but failed as I just wanted outside in the nice heat and to start my vacation. Trip to the hotel made me question my choice in vacation destinations because it's definately a desert....

We recently returned from a couples trip to Los Cabos, which was lovely. We stayed at the Riu Palace all inclusive resort. I investigated carefully after a trip that went horribly wrong in Ocho Rios Jamaica, I watched You Tube videos, read the reviews etc. We had a wonderful stay, the Palace is immaculate, we walked next door to see...

PROS Breathtaking views and scenery. Rabi! Pool activities with Rabi and Carla(?) were the hoot and anticipated event of the day...yeah to water aerobics. CONS Staff were disorganized, impatient, not helpfu. Front desk staff were rude and unprofessional. Sad Making dinner reservations was like an act of congress. Plans to return? Nope!

A bit about myself, I am a travel agent who traveled with a friend on a non agent rate to the RIU Palace property in Los Cabos, Mexico. In other words I went as a regular full fare paying guest so the RIU Palace staff had no idea who I am. I was reluctant to go after reading many negative... More
