I have to admit that I was skeptical as to what to expect at the Riu. It's all-inclusive and not only do I not drink but we have an 8-month-old, as well. I read complaints about the noise in the halls at night and thought we were going to end up in something close to a frat-party atmosphere. Fortunately, those...

My wife and I spent a week here in February and had a very nice time. The service was great, the food was excellent, and the resort was very clean! Some helpful tips - the Mexican restaurant by the pool has wonderful coconut ice cream (saves a trip to the main buffet)! We did the sunset cruise on the Cabo...

I recently took my 3rd trip to the Riu Palace in Cabo, and I must say that it is a great hotel for the cost. If you are looking for fun get away, with a slightly more upscale feel than the Santa Fe, than this is your place. Lunch at the Italian place (forget the name) was excellent, staff at...

Riu Palace was great!! We were in a ground floor room and wanted up high, no problem. Changed easily. The people were great, the food was great. Can not say enough good things about it. We will go back.

This place is heavenly. The only thing that was not perfect was the fact u have to traverse a restaurant in order to get to a toilet. Every thing was beautiful and delicious except the loud, obnoxious 20 something drunkards screaming and yelling in the middle of the night and the smokers polluting the pool atmosphere. Entertainment was good, classes...

The Riu Palace is a stunning hotel with a beautiful open air lobby. Right from the moment we arrived the service was amazing! The rooms were spacious and clean, lots of towels were available and the cleaning staff never seemed to be in the way. The staff at the hotel have smiles on their faces day and night and are...
