One of the things that I find difficult when planning a vacation is the appropriate amount to set aside for the bar bill. Yes, I am a drinker and am happily dating someone who tries to keep pace. We are by no means alcoholics, but a trip away can come with a sizable allocation of spending money towards drinks. To...

My wife and I just returned from the Rui and had a nice trip to Cabo including a stay at the Riu. There were some issues though at the Rui. Noticed the room had a musty smell when we walked in and instead of a king size bed, we had to single beds stuck together! And to say the beds...

We are Riu Class members and have stayed at the Riu Palace Pacifico in Nuevo Vallarta numerous times. Although we love staying at Riu Palaces, I must admit that there is much room for improvement here. Don’t get me wrong, had a great vacation and really enjoyed our stay but in comparison to other resorts and considering that this is...

We stayed @ the Riu Palace 4-12 thru 4-19. We had a group of about 30 for a wedding that took place on that Saturday.

Had an absolutely great time at this resort. The rooms were very clean and attended to by the cleaning staff twice a day. The food was excellent, especially at the Fusion and Japenese a la carte restaurants. The staff were all very friendly and took care of any requests we had. The location of the resort on the beach was...

We have traveled many times. Always to all-inclusive resorts. The RIU was clean, good service, decent food. However, they have the worst, hard, plastic pee guard beds ever made! The walls are so thin you can't tell if your door is being knocked on or your neighbors. Very loud when the partiers go to bed. I also did not like...

We arrived tired and beaten down but from the moment those people opened their mouths all changed. Friendly, courteous, accommodating from the Greet to the room we were impressed. The room was Spanish style, old world meets modern day, bar in our room was very comforting and clean. We could see the Cruisers from our balcony. The grounds are impeccable,...

As most Trip Adviser members do, we researched the hundreds of vacationer`s postings on the Riu Palace Los Cabos both before we booked and while we counted down the days prior to our holiday.
