My wife and I travel to Cabo San Lucas at least once a year, and usually stay at higher end resorts (I know that sounds snobby) but, we like luxury resorts, however, when you take 3 teenage kids with you, they can cost you a fortune! This year we decided to go to an "All Inclusive" so we would not have to stress about the cost every time the kids wanted a drink or food. The Riu Palace turned out to be the perfect choice for our family!
We booked through Expedia and had some problems upon check in with a rate quoted to us by them. I don’t think it was the Riu’s fault. We were tired and very frustrated with the confusion, when one of the managers named "Anna" (sorry I don't remember her last name) stepped up and took control of the situation and took care of us. A special thank you to her!
The resort is very nice and well maintained. We saw the staff constantly cleaning the place. The staff here are very friendly and very accommodating and they work very hard!!
JUST BECAUSE THIS IS AN ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD NOT TIP!! IF YOU CAN'T GIVE A BUCK OR TWO WHEN YOU GET A DRINK OR GET UP FROM YOUR TABLE AFTER A MEAL THEN YOU HAVE NO CLASS AT ALL!!!! I did not see many people tipping and these people work very hard for very little money!
Overall, I would recommend this resort for the good food, great staff and nice pools. It is a beautiful property with a great location which is close to downtown and Medano Beach. We really enjoyed the resort and the daily activities were fun too.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
