We went as a group of 5 couples to the Riu Palace in early November for a long weekend getaway. We booked thru Apple, and had a fantastic time. Did a TON of research for months before deciding on this property, and everyone was glad I did! There are not a lot of all inclusive options in Cabo, but this one is all you need. Good food, amazing service, tons of options. Drinks are bit watered down, but all you have to do is ask for a doubleshot. We enjoyed hanging out in the 24 hour lobby bar for pre-dinner drinks. They make great flavored martini's, ask that they use Absolut! Pools were a bit crowded, but we got most of our sun laying by the beach anyway so we didn't mind - we tipped the servers so got awesome service at the beach!
We took a water taxi to town, spent some time shopping there. We also rented jet skis to go see the arches and lovers beach and had a blast.
Rooms were fine, typical Mexican resort. Clean, well stocked fridge, nothing stolen. I like soft beds and was nervous given all the bad reviews, but we slept fine the whole trip.
Food - Krystal and Misaki were great! Didn't care for the Mexican restaurant and didn't try the others. Buffet had plenty options to keep us full.
The boys went fishing and caught some great Mahi, which we were able to bring home very easily. All in all, a fantastic trip and I can't wait to return!
