It may be a sign of the times or the "Mexican scare" but the Palace seemed to be only half full. We got a beautiful oceanview room which was ok but we have stayed in better. Normally as you leave tips on the pillows for the chamber maids the room gets left fancier with each day passing...not so in this...

Just returned from a week at the Riu Palace (feb 2-9) and we loved it. All a la carte restaurants were great and except for the Krystal it was easy to get reservations. For Krystal you have to make it for the same day but we had no problem getting it for the day we wanted. Everybody says it was...

My husband and I just returned from the Riu - Feb 3-11,2012 Althought our intention and reason for trip was for scuba diving and due to an unfortunate first dive issue with blown ear drum ( doctor care on site) from an unexpected currant pull, and faulty mask. The trip was nowhere a complete loss... In fact the only down...

This was my first trip to Cabo and I was left amazed by it's beautiful views. I believe the Riu Palace has one of the best views of the famous landmark of Los Cabos. The premices of the hotel itself are very well maintened and very clean all around the pool areas. One thing I can definitely identify with other...

We stayed for 5 nights in January 2012. Beautiful property, lots of activities and convenient to downtown Cabo. Restaurants were buffet style and felt like a cruise ship dining experience and the two times we had table service, the food was more disappointing. Lots of selections, though overall food quality was fair. Rooms in the main building can be very...

I have just returned from an 11 day trip to the Riu Palace. It was a first class trip all the way. Wonderful service, clean rooms and good food. The view is amazing overlooking the water from the hotel. Very clean beach with views of cruise ships and even a billionaire's 330 foot mega yacht parked in front of our...

I am 28 and my husband is 27. We stayed at Riu Palace Feb 3-10, 2012. I struggle with giving this hotel a 4 star rating or a 3 star rating. In the end, I suppose 4 star wins out - the staff, grounds and food bumped it up. I can't say enough about the staff at the Riu Palace....
