My husband and I visited the Riu Palace Cabo the beginning of April 2015. This is our 6th trip to Cabo but first to this resort. We usually stay in San Jose but wanted to try near the Arch. We took signature vacations to the Riu which was cramped charter but trip was good. On arrival at hotel we were... More

A wonderful place for a vacation. The rooms and hotel grounds were very nice. The staff friendly and helpful. There are two large pools - the prime seating close to the pool was sometimes a bit hard to get, but there were always at least a few chairs available in the outer areas. The food at the buffet varied a... More

Our trip to the Riu Palace Cabo was FANTASTIC from start to finish! Cabo is awesome all by itself, but the Riu Palace is the diamond in the platinum setting! Wonderful service, amazing food, gorgeous views, relaxing pool and fun pool.., really fun entertainment..., you get the point! We loved it!

So you don't want to cook/grocery shopping/ make your own bed? This is the place to stay. Very clean with great food and intertainment. Lots of beach to walk or horseback ride. Walking distance to Medano beach.(party and reataurants) The price is worth it .

I went to this hotel in early April with my fiance and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hotel itself was beautiful, the grounds were gorgeous, and the staff was excellent. The most impressive part of the whole trip was surprisingly the food. This was the best food I've ever had at an all inclusive and I... More

This was our first time to Mexico! We went with a group of 5 couples. Some pros to this resort was definitely the views. We had an ocean view room and it was well worth it! Also the only thing we found wrong with the room was the shower that seemed to be configured weird and the water always leaked... More

We just got back from a girls trip and had a great time! This place is gorgeous with an Infiniti pool and swim up bars, beautiful beach. The waves are as big as the reviews say so be careful. Fun to play in if you're a good swimmer, but most likely even a good swimmer needs to be cautious. Also... More

We just returned from a 9 day stay at the RIU Palace Cabo. We traveled with 2 other couples all in our 60s. This was our 12th trip to Mexico, 2nd time to Cabo and the 6th time we have stayed at a RIU. The resort was beautiful and spotless. Someone cleaning everywhere you look all day long. The staff...

We went on a group trip with a bunch of women for two 50th birthday celebrations. If you are told a room will work for 3 - it will NOT. We had a hassle getting them to bring in another bed so we could sleep the 3 adults they said would fit. A jr. suite is really just a hotel... More

I wanted to write a review as we had a great trip at the Riu Palace - the service was great, the food was great, multiple pools and bars. While we were in the dining room one night a lady started to choke, everyone watched in horror as she was turning grey and her lips were going blue-ish, there was... More
