Pros: great property which is cleaned almost constantly by a vigilant staff. Bartenders and staff are friendly event to those who doesn't speak fluent spanish. Cons: room service is beyond terrible (club sandwich is the only option one can eat). Drinks are watered down, but then again it is probably for the best at a resort that costs the same...

The hotel has fantastic view and facilities. Room is clean except there is no light at the bathtub and the fridge is noisy. Great entertainment activities. However, please expect the services are extremely SLOW!! If you ever need any changes to be made by the hotel, please expect you will need to wait at least 30 minutes to an hour...

The grounds and pools are well maintained. The staff is wonderful. The food was excellent with a great selection. The entertainment was...

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Palace October 28 to November 2 of this year. We absolutely loved it! Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so we had a couple of cocktails at the bar while we waited. The view of the ocean and Land's End from the lobby is unbelievable. It's so peaceful and relaxing. Our...

I stayed at the RIU Palace in January 2012 with 7 other friends. As a Travel Agent I can say this is one of the nicest resorts I've been to. The grounds were kept very clean, as were the rooms. We found the staff to be incredibly nice, fun and accommodating. One of my friends was celebrating her birthday while...

This was our first trip to Cabo. We have gone to Playa del Carmen for years and wanted to try the west coast. The hotel lobby was very busy when we arrived at 5:30 PM and checking in was a nightmare. The front desk has 4 or 5 employees who all have to go and wait in line to get...

We had a Jr suit ocean view. The room was clean and serviced daily. The food was better than expected, actually I am very picky, but the food was generally very good. Yes I would go back, and as a matter of fact I am in the process of booking another stay there as we speak.

We went as a group of 5 couples to the Riu Palace in early November for a long weekend getaway. We booked thru Apple, and had a fantastic time. Did a TON of research for months before deciding on this property, and everyone was glad I did! There are not a lot of all inclusive options in Cabo, but this...
