Very nice all inclusive. Good liquor and food. It would be nice if the rooms had snacks. Great club sandwich on room service. Ocean view junior suites are great. Pay close attention to the room types for views etc. can also go to the riu Santa Fe. Supposed to be non smoking but you can definitely smoke.

The resort is huge! Over 600 rooms! It is very beautiful and the beach area is amazing! The food is decent however my husband has a dairy allergy and the food really bothered him. Several of their rooms are directly over the "entertainment" area. I have quotes around "entertainment" because most of the shows were some of the worst I've...

The resort was beautiful, very clean and well maintained. The oceanfront, although not recommended for swimming, was gorgeous; we spent a few extra bucks to upgrade to an oceanview room... highly recommend. Staff was all very friendly, one in particular, Alonso made our meals more enjoyable, he was always there to greet us for breakfast and dinner, or even if...

We travelled last week of February when whales are still visible. We were a party of 8 people 45-50 years old. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted beachfront, nightlife, swim up bats, volleyball, shopping, golf,. Riu Palace property delivers all of that. It sits on a hill from Riu Santa Fe. You can walk down a few flights of...

Property is well maintained and clean, grounds are stunning the beach is beautiful. I'm a picky eater and was able to find food to eat without a problem drinks were good. There were vendors selling stuff on the beach said no thank you and they left you alone.

Was here for a wedding and staying five days total.The resort is immaculate with great clean grounds and super service. The food was always wonderful with tons of choices. The only issue that was a big deal was that the heater in the pool wasn't working and the pool was quite chilly in December.

This Riu is fabulous. Not only is it immaculate, but the grounds are so pretty and well kept. We stayed for a week mid-March and found the weather to be as perfect as the resort. I do believe that Cabo is more of a party area than say Puerto Vallarta, so there were more spring breakers there than at some...

I really enjoyed this hotel, came here with a group of friends. Rooms were a decent space and clean. Staff was friendly and the hotel grounds were pretty. Big pool and easy beach access. I really liked the food as well and as a vegan its hard to find things to eat sometimes while traveling, but I ate a whole...
