my husband and i recently ,october 17 thru the 24 ,2004 vacationed at the riu palace. our room number was 1024 good central location on second floor.
the staff were all very friendly. benny [maitre de] at the don julian is a great guy. the food was excellent at all restaurants. especially nice this time were the plentiful addition of mussels at all the restaurants.
if you are in the market for silver bracelets and chains buy from the guys on the beach. their prices and quality are by far better than the vendors that set up in the riu courtyard or in the little plaza down the street. definately bargain with them and you can use american dollars.
don 't forget to have a massage on the beach from hector. it was fantastic
this was our second visit here and would reccomend it to everyone. in march 2005 we are going to the new riu palace in cabo san lucas.
