My hubby and I just got back from a long weekend at RIU. I recently did a girls trip at Secrets The Vine in Cancun which is also all inclusive. At first I was comparing RIU to Secrets and I was disappointed (no comparison) but I realized you get what you pay for. We ended up having a great time...

I cannot believe that this day and age with all the technology that we have that a hotel cannot plan for connected rooms. We just arrived for 5 nights with teenagers in tow. I requested connecting rooms months ago and followed up 3 days ago. have to stay three doors down from them. This is so crazy! There cannot be...

This is PARADISE. The hotel is modern. Everything is clan all the time. The restaurants offer a wide variety of options and the cuisine is high level. The kindness of the staff is awesome. We went with my wife and two kids of 5- and 3-years-old and we will certainly come back soon in a few months. The place is...

Took me a while to write this and I prefer to keep my reviews short and to the point. This is my 2nd RIU stay. Cabo being my 1st. This won't be easy but I'll try. This is a very dressed up basic chain hotel. The rooms are nothing exciting and the beds are not comfortable. Which I found to...

Just returned from 10 days at the Riu Palace Peninsula. Could not have had a better experience. Rooms were really nice-food was delicious- pools and beach were beautiful. The staff were all friendly and we loved the pool activities and especially the people in charge of them. The nighttime shows were very entertaining. So nice to have everything right there....

I visited this resort the year it opened, maybe even just a few months in. I loved the resort then and any kinks from my first trip had been worked out 4 years later because I have absolutely no complaints. We stayed in the Adult Villa's section of the resort which I highly recommend if you're going as a couple....

This hotel was amazing, start to finish. Booked with Apple vacations, and we've never had a better trip. The hotel is lovely. Food is excellent. Awesome drinks. Hard-working staff who went out of their way to please us. Beautiful beach and great weather. Really great job, Riu!

My wife and I along with another couple visited The Riu Palace Peninsula from Feb. 11th through Feb. 15. The hotel, the grounds and the staff were absolutely wonderful. We booked through Apple Vacations and requested private transportation and went with the adult only villas with a private pool. Arrival- Customs was a breeze and every one that had contact...

We stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of February. The check in went smoothly and our room was located on the 11th floor on the wing above the restaurant. The views from the room were spectacular- looking over the pool to the ocean. There are two wings to the hotel; one over the entertainment area and one over the...
