My family and I, a group of 6 adults, stayed at the RIU Palace for five nights 5/15-5/20. Overall, we had a wonderful time, however there are a few comments from our stay that may be helpful to others… To begin, the resort was only about a 30 minute drive to/from the airport. We had transport set up through a...

The staff was very nice and welcoming. The rooms were clean and well kept. We did have a broken AC when we arrived but they fixed it promptly. We didn't have any problems checking in or checking out. The food was horrible but I think it's pretty common in all inclusives. It was also kind of boring but we did...

Hey guys! I'm going to be a bit biased as we had the suite with a 360 degree balcony view, with a hot tub. It was 2 floors with a white spiral staircase. (Don't go up that bad boy tipsy). I had the best time here, the food was tasty, you could go to the buffet and bring it back...

The management staff are rude and abusive and destroyed my property with no concerns or no efforts to fix it. The on staff manager was especially horrible taking my band and threatening to kick me out because I complained that my $300 bag was destroyed. Definitely fire that horrible disgusting rude manager. The rest of the hotel is bad too....

We vacationed here for 5 days the week before Memorial Weekend & it did not disappoint. The property is beautifully constructed! The lobby area was this big open outdoorsy space with more modern decorations & an upscale feel. Past the lobby is more restaurants & downstairs opens up to the blue waters & sandy beach. Breathtaking! Food: Breakfast, lunch &...

We stayed at the Riu Palace for five days and had a very nice time. It was our first trip to Cabo but we've been to other destinations in Mexico and have stay at other All-Inclusives. We picked the Riu based on reviews, location and a pretty amazing price. I'm not going to go into too many details-just a few-but...

The food is the best at any all inclusive we have had at any other resort. First and last time at a Riu. So noisy. Extremely hard beds, lousy pillows. Can hear every conversation of people returning to their rooms at night. Very clean. Good service in the lounge and at the buffet. Mediocre entertainment.

If you are looking for a luxury Resort, this is not it. This is a Spring Break destination for drunk college kids who yell and throw up all over the place. Spanish pop music is blasted over loud speakers 24 / 7. The alcohol is bottom shelf and the food is terrible. This Hotel lacks the basic amenities like elevators...

Came here in May and had an excellent time. One goal was to buy silver jewelry. I didn't have to go too far. Just went down the stairs of the Riu Palace on to the beach and there he was. He had beautiful items and was 100% honest about what was silver and what wasn't. I highly recommend him. When...
