Reviewed yesterday NEW

I read a lot of reviews before booking this vacation for my husband and I. The reviews for the Riu Palace were pretty accurate. First impression...the lobby/check-in area decor is okay, but then you walk into the lobby bar and it is grand! Beautiful views of the ocean, beach, Cabo in the distance, cruise ship and the resort pools and...

We traveled at the start of spring break and booked through Apple Vacations. A sweet juice drink was provided at check in, which went quickly. The hotel renovation tried to combine the old Spanish look with new contemporary Riu colors. While the hotel was extremely clean the decor did not combine well. We had a pool suite. The wade pool...

We stayed here in July of 2016. Our time there was lovely. The pools were amazing and the staff was exceptional with their service. You never had to wait long for a drink by the pool or at the bars. We are scuba divers and we dove with the Outfit there and they were professional and very accommodating. In fact,...

My wife and i got back yesterday from a 40th anniversary vacation. This was our 3rd RIU Palace. We had a great time, the room was great- a Junior suite Ocean view. The resort was beautifully landscaped and was constantly being cleaned. If you have read other reviews you should realize the beach is not swimmable. We are more for...

Overall we liked this resort. The rooms were nice and clean, plus room service was timely and friendly! All of the staff were wonderful and courteous. My drink was always full. They come around pool side constantly. You may have already read that the beach is not swimmable but the pools make up for it! There are vendors on the...

The view is amazing. Impossible to beat. The view from the pools with swim up bars is crazy amazing. We didn't like that the pools are all split up - main swimming pool & two swim up bars. We went to the swim up bar closest to our room most afternoons and it was quiet - not much music or...

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...
