The resort is beautiful, rooms are spacious and the food is plentiful. Everything about this resort is wonderful except for the beach and the ocean in front of the resort. You cannot swim in the water-it is just too wild. My husband enjoys taking long walks on the beach but this is really difficult as the sand is very coarse...

We booked this hotel through Sunwing with their Lucky 5 Deal, where you don’t know which of the 8 Five Star hotels you will get until a week or so before the trip. We ended up with the Riu Palace, an all-inclusive, recently re-opened after a major renovation. We found the hotel to be mostly to our liking. Having not...

After reading some of the reviews we were a little concerned before we got here . But once we arrived there was no question we were thrilled . It was the fastest checkin I've ever had . I'm not sure why other people's reviews were complaining about anything . We ate at the buffet for breakfast and supper everyday ....

The Riu Palace Los Cabos is an excellent hotel. I booked the hotel from their own website as this appeared as attractive as other sites. The upside booking from the Riu website was that I could get a free transfer from and to the airport. This is 30-45 minute ride. As always arriving at a beach airport you have to...

Palace was newly renovated during end of 2016. This is our 3rd visit to this site. Bathroom upgrade was probably the most needed. They moved the live entertainment at night to the north side of the property and we were placed in rooms on that side. Noise from live entertainment is pretty loud until around 10:30 - 11:00. If you...

My husband, girls and I just got back from the RIU Palace in Cabo San Lucas. Don't think I have one complaint. The renovations that were recently done are really nice and freshen up the resort! We were a party of 6 and had 3 bedrooms. We took our 2 girls and their 2 friends. Ages 16 and 22. Everyone...

Used CheapCaribbean.com to book this all-inclusive vacation. We loved everything about it. The food was as good as it gets, and is available at all times. There are very good specialty restaurants with no reservations needed and no extra cost. The room was beautiful, and the service throughout the entire establishment was superb and very friendly. There is no need...

We arrived mid-week and found the place to be a wonderful, peaceful retreat from the February snows. By the weekend, the place filled with wave after wave of tattooed, twenty-something's that were big on noise, and full of themselves...but that's another story. After the third day, the Air Conditioning in our room stopped cooling, but that was OK because leaving...

We went to the Riu Palace for our 20th Anniversary and enjoyed our stay. They were very nice to upgrade us to a suite to accommodate our celebration but we had to wait quite a while to get into out room,but we waited at the bar so it wasn't too bad. The staff is very attentive to your needs but...

This was our second stay at this resort,previously staying three years ago.We rarely revisit places but enjoyed our first stay so decided on a repeat and were not disappointed. My wife and myself spent 2 weeks here from Jan 30 through Feb 13. Our room was an Oceanview Room King with a lovely view of the resort and ocean. The...
