My husband and I just returned from a visit to the Riu Palace that I won through work. We have been to some other very nice resorts (Royal Hideaway, going to Four Seasons Costa Rica) and have been to some not so great (in Jamaica). This property falls right about in the middle.
Pro's-It was absolutely beautiful. The resort looks outs onto the Sea de Cortez and the Arches. Absolutely breathtaking. The pools at the hotel are very nice and were not all that crowded when we were there.
The rooms were nice. Clean and spacious. Felt very safe. The resort is very large and we really only went to the side where our room was.
The shows put on by the hotel were cute and creative.
There were not tons of vendors to bother you which was a huge isssue in Jamaica.
Negs- The food was okay, not great. The buffets were pretty good for breakfast and lunch. We ate at the steak house with a big group and it was not great. We ate at the Sir Lawrence by ourselves and it was okay. I heard the Japanese restauraunt was great.
The service was pretty good, people always checking for drink refills, etc.
We will definately go back to Cabo San Lucas as it was beautiful.
