My husband and I booked a long weekend at the RIU Palace. We arrived August 17th to find mass chaos. It had rained 20 inches for the past 4 days and the resort? was without water and electricity. No one from RIU bothered to call us, email us, etc... to advise of the problems. If we had known we would...

My husband, me and my two kids stayed there for 4 nights, the hotel looked fine without rain, as it began to rain the water started to flood the resort, I did not get why it was raining inside too!!!... Management needs to start planning for the worst climate conditions possible either the significant amount of water that we saw...

The most significant downfall of this outdated hotel, sadly is not the poor room service & that they never got a single, simple order correct; or a pot of coffee w/ cream & sugar that took an hour each time -frustrating, or the less than mediocre restaurants-Mexicano, Steak House, Japanese, or the wine selection that tasted like poor quality liquor.It's...

I have stayed at various RIU Resorts within the past years and had great experiences. The RIU at Cabo San Lucas has been the worst experience throughout all my travels. Stayed at this resort from Friday August 13-17. During my stay there was a tropical storm and it rain everyday. The hotel was Flooded, there was no running water, leaks...

Awesome view. You are looking at the ocean from every spot in the hotel. Clean hotel. Good service. Food was not great but... ya expect that from all-inclusive. I'd go back but I'd prefer to stay closer to town because the waves are calmer there.

This was our first time in Cabo and first time on a Riu resort. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The staff was always busy cleaning something and it showed that the resort was well maintained. The drinks were good, very abundant and you had your choice of liquor. Wine (red and white) however was awful. We took a...

Riu Palace provides all the conveniences of a great all inclusive, numerous food options, nice drinks with premium alcohol, great views. It is true its a pain to book at the a la carte restaurants, if you're there past 7am your choices are limited. The Japanese Restaurant that was once only by reservation, is now available without one, and is...

We just got back from a 6 day vacation at the Riu Palace in Cabo. I have to say that this was a last minute vacation change to Cabo because Hurricane Ernesto messed up our original plans.
