RIU palace spring breakers?

I am intending to travel to Cabos the third week of March. I have stayed at the Palace before and really enjoyed it. Do most of the partiers stay at the Sante Fe? I don’t want the crowd to be too wild while I stay.

Many Spring Breakers stay at the RIU Santa Fe. Less at the more expensive RIU Palace.

Unfortunately you have no control over the "Enthusiasm" of the Spring breakers.

The good news is while they tend to Party All night, they often sleep into the early afternoon.

That gives you a very peaceful morning.

Im sure others will add helpful information.

Most college kids don't have a lot of money so they tend to stay at the least expensive places. A few richer breakers may stay at the Riu Palace however as those who stay at the Palace can also use the facilities of the Riu Santa Fe some from the Palace will also use the Riu Santa Fe facilities as well.

Does this mean that all the things RIU keeps telling me about their zero tolerance policy for Spring Breakers is just lip service?

Yes....... Lip Service............... Dont forget the RIU got really ripped by guests for their treatment of guests and the confusion and Dangerous situation during and after the Tropical Storm Lydia.

It was a very unusual event....But the guests were Furious !

Riu does have some rules.. unlike Cancun resorts,. They do not allow large group bookings..and only so many people per room and one must be Adult age.

That doesn't mean that young people, twenties can't book. And cause disturbance.

More so at Santa Fe.

There will always be some inconsiderate noisy guests,,who help after leaving disco.. at all resorts.

March will be full occupancy..

As JoLeen2 mentioned the Palace will be full because if you are booked at Santa Fe and do not like the noise from the construction...you can pay to upgrade to the Palace. I would expect that the Palace will be booking at 100% levels!! And the atmosphere will probably not me the norm!!!
