Paradise (Old East Iranian: pairidaeza) is a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and timeless Wikipedia.
My Spouse and I ages 45-50 just got back from the Riu Palace we went April 23-30 and had a fantastic time.Most of the reviews you will read will be right. You can not swim in the Sea of Cortez the water is rough all though we did see people in the water i just say good luck with that.We did walk the beach to Cabo the sand has shells in it but didn't bother me a bit. You can stop at the bars along the way we did at Tabascos and then walked to town.It was great walking into the marina seeing the sea lions jumping up on the fishing boats and watching them feed them things i have never seen before.The big cruse ships out in front of the hotel and by the marina and at night when they are all lit up was a neat thing to see with fire works going off. When in town there lots to do and many bars to adventure and shopping in designer malls and local stores.Went to the Cabo Wabo Sammy Hagar's had a blast great house band rock and roll and no cover drinks between 4-10 dollars. Also rented a van and split it 3 ways and went to hotel California the van cost 120 us.Rented it at the hotel. Also was forced to go check out Walmart that was an adventure all in its own.Try to remember the don't really like the US dollar there anymore so I brought 2000.00 Pesos that's around 194.00 Canadian and it did us I also brought US 500.00 and brought back 300.00. Now things you may already know if you have read the other reviews.
Was very good the Al- a- carts were good people lining up in the morning to book wasn't for us so i went during the day and we got late dinners and that's what we like the pool doesn't close until 8. We ate at the Mexican it was good also at the steak house also very good. There are two others the Japanese and the Fusion restaurant Krystal's we heard good things about but never went. All restaurants are casual except Krystal's.
Just remember its done in Mexican time and then it would be all good.Tipping was a little strange at times we would give a tip and some would refuse it and then some wouldn't. I had a Molson Canadian hat and the waitress liked it so much she asked to have it so at the end of the week I gave it to her and she came back with her manager and a form for me to fill out and sign as a gift to her.
You can hear through the walls. I think they used paper not dry wall. Coffee in the room was sometimes hard to come by. No shortage of alcohol. My buddy in the other room tasted his rum and called down to the desk and told them it was watered down and came right up and changed it for him.Liqueur dispenser and the fridge full at all times. The view was great from 4108 try to stay close to that side of the hotel if you can.
Just what you would expect from a all inclusive resort no more no less.
Two swim ups and a 24 hr bar in the lobby the only disappointing thing there is no hot food for that late night hunger only sandwiches. Disco was alright had fun. You can go over to the Hotel Riu Santa Fe and enjoy there Sports bar but we never made it.
If you don't have to fly Sunwing then don't. The Mexicans at the airport on the way home they go through everyone's luggage. Its also a long flight so be prepared about 5-1/2 hours from Toronto Canada and 5 coming home.After weighing the luggage and if you go over you will pay so watch that then they tell you that just before you board the plane they will weigh your carry on. We saw that scale and it has this spot on it that if it cant fit in it then its to big that was weird but just before we went on they decided not to use it. So watch when you buy something at the duty free there they weigh your carry on after you buy the bottle
Things to remember bring Pesos, paper thin walls and its what you make of it
