I usually enjoy every vacation I go on buy this was the worst vacation experience I have ever had. For starters, these are the MOST uncomfortable beds I've ever slept on in my life. It was like sleeping on the floor--actually the floor might've been better. The hotel staff was un-courteous. I was never even able to enjoy one "nice...

We had 10 days of sun and relaxation. I will go back to the RIU for sure. Great staff, that looked after our every need. The buffet does get old, but the food is good. On our the last day we had the pleasure of helping to release baby sea turtles, what a great experience. I would love to just...

We returned from the Riu Palace Cabo on November 2 after a two week visit. We enjoyed the vacation, but were struck by the inconsistencies of what is supposed to be one of the flagships of the Riu chain. We have stayed previously at Riu Palace Mexico and expected the same standards. Unfortunately this was not the case. Riu Palace...

Fantastic time eating good food, good drinks and beautiful setting. Rooms were comfortable. The only room complaint is the hardness of the bed - very. Drinks are plentiful albeit tasted watered down. Nighttime entertainment fun. Lots of things to do at an extra cost (scuba diving, jetskis, ...). Amazing location in Los Cabos. Service was very good. Will definately come...

We came to Cabo for 5 days and stayed at the Riu Palace as a recommendation from a friend, and we were not disappointed! The resort has several different pools and jacuzzis so there's more than enough room to relax without being bothered by people swimming all around you (and we came during Spring Break). The food that was served...

We had a good time at the RIU. The food was pretty much what we expected for the money at an all inclusive. We could always find something that we wanted to eat at The Buffet and the Specialty restaurants were very good. The drinks were okay. We brought our own cups and they were more than happy to fill...

We were with two other couples and had a great time. The location of the hotel is great as it is close to town but still far away enough to where you are able to feel relaxed. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food was pretty good for an all inclusive that is preparing food for the masses. The...

My girlfriend and I visited the Riu Palace10/21-10/28. Being from Chicago we are used to great food and also realize that excellent cuisine comes at a price. At the Riu we found the food and drink to be adequate for an all inclusive resort. The room service selections were a little disappointing but otherwise the Riu offered a nice variety...

We stayed at the Palace in Jan. 2012; there were 20 people in our group. Check-in - "let the games begin" it is this way with just about every resort we have stayed at in Cabo. They put you in a room that they hope you will accept, when you don't, they send you to another, etc.... We are not...

We travelled to the Riu Palace in Los Cabos on October 12, 2012 on the suggestion of friends who had stayed in the area before. We were a group of six adults, and all of us were very pleased with the hotel, staff, service and food. Clean infinity pools, wait staff never let our drinks run dry, plenty of fresh...
