My wife and I travelled to the Riu Palace July 14 - 21 2014 for our annual summer trip. The hotel was recommended by a few friends who have stayed there. Here are the positives of the hotel, the room was clean and the staff were really nice. We stayed in an ocean view junior suite. The view was good... More

We stayed at the Hotel Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas from August 14- 21 with an Oceanfront room. This was the first RIU we ever stayed at and would come back again! ROOM: Air conditioned rooms were stocked, clean, and cool. The view from our oceanfront view junior suite was great because you could see the pool, the ocean and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Riu. The hotel was very clean, the staff were constantly cleaning. The evening shows were pretty good as well- we really enjoyed the Michael Jackson show and the Grease show as well. We loved the quiet pool and the swim up bar and wish we would have spent more time in the pools. The... More

I visited the RIU Palace in Cabo in April 2014 with me and a group of my friends. We have all done All Inclusives before and were ready for the flood of tourist action we had signed up for. Quick review: When you book at the RIU Palace you get full access to the RIU Sante Fe next door. If... More

My husband and I had an amazing time staying here in October of 2013. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and very attentive. I suggest making reservations for the "specialty" restaurants when you first arrive since they book early. I loved that they had two pools...one with a younger "party vibe" and one that was more tranquil and relaxing. Cannot... More

Knowing the reputation that Riu resorts have in general and this being our first stay in Cabo, we weren't sure what to expect. However we absolutely loved it and plan to go back! We swam in the ocean every day, there is quite the drop off from the beach and the tide is strong but you don't have to be... More

We visited this hotel because it was chosen for our company sponsored trip to Cabo San Lucas. Overall, we would consider returning to Riu Palace if my company chose it again, but only in a cooler month than August, and we would bring our own DVD player. If we were to visit the area on our own and pay for... More

We had three rooms, all were far apart.. We got in around 2pm, they claimed they didn't have any clean rooms. We had to wait until 4pm to get in, and still we had to be on the bottom floor spread apart. They only had three restaurants you can make reservations at 2 ( if you have kids) one is... More

Over all great stay for the value. Remember you are in Mexico and things are slow. The resort try really hard. Room might need upgrade but the property had excellent views nice pools nice restaurants. We had a great stake in one of the specialty dinner places. Comparing this to other stays in Ixtapa and Cancun I think I will... More

My two daughters (19 and 21) and I recently stayed at Riu Palace for five nights. Truly disappointing. Checking in was no problem. I had sent an e-mail and requested a room near the pool but away from the lobby and I was upgraded from a sea view to an ocean front. At check-in you are given a towel card.... More
