"Quick Cabo Getaway Cures Winter's Blues"
The Riu Palace vs the Riu Santa Fe, although both in a similar location, are as different as night and day. Santa Fe frat house-ish vs.more sophisticated Palace. Santa Fe's pool filled with 20 somethings bellied up to the bar doing shots and loudly dropping "F Bombs." Although the Palace had its fair share of Lady Gaga songs belting over the pool amps until 5pm, the crowd was more of 30+, honeymooners and people who were there to have a good time-many enjoying their fair share of alcohol but didn't need to get wasted to do it. Very few children. We had stayed at a Riu in Cancun a few years ago but the Riu Palace Cabo far exceeded that facility. Our junior suite (#2106) looked out over a reflecting pool and the ocean. Although we couldn't see the famous Cabo Arch, it was a lovely view non-the-less. Rooms were clean, attractively decorated and comfortable beds. Only one issue- the electricity shorted out, but it was quickly repaired after the situation was reported. Food was great. I am not a buffet person but we followed other's advice for the Thursday night extravaganza. Enjoyed our 10th anniversary at an outdoor table for two, champagne, unlimited lobster tails and caviar-yes, at the buffet! Other nights, enjoyed a fancy Krystal meal and delicious lobster tails at the steakhouse. Breakfasts had something for every palate and diet. Blended margaritas hit the spot with a perfect taste and texture. Saturday Karaoke Night was hilarious with talent provided by fellow guests.

Enjoyed our stay very much! The food is very fresh, very well displayed and of such great variety! The staff is very friendly and they try their best to keep you happy and satisfied. Two days in the row the room was not cleaned till late afternoon. One day the electronic key did not work, but these are little inconveniences. The location has gorgeous view of the town and cape/cabo

"Best Vacation Ever"
This was the most amazing experience for our family vacation! There were 22 of us and everyone from 35 to 77 loved every minute of our time at your amazing hotel. The rooms, the food, the resturants, the staff were all exceptional. The pools were pristine and the beach and view a little bit of heaven. Can't even begin to tell you how being an all inclusive resort made our visit so easy and pleasant especially with such a large group. There were times we were all together and times we ventured out to enjoy the sights and activities in Cabo in smaller groups. There was something for everyone's liking. This was truly a vacation of a lifetime and we can't wait to come back!

"Great hotel to stay. Beautiful view of beach"
Had a great experience. Ernesto and Beth were very accommodating and helpful with changes that we asked for. The food at the buffets were much better than the restaurants. Needed a massage from running on the beach. Pools were perfect!! The hotel next door is definitely for the younger crowd. Worth paying the extra money for the nicer hotel and more laid back vibe.

We have been here before and returned 2 years later and we will return again. The staff cannot do enough for you. They want you to be happy and comfortable. There was never a shortage of curteous, friendly staff. We arrrived and saw that our room had 2 double beds. I called them asking for a king sized bed for my husband and I and they accomidated us the next day and moved our belongings while we were at the pool relaxing, and there was a bottle of wine and chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us. Thank Riu Palace!!

"Treated like Kings and Queens at the Palace"
The only place we stay in Cabo. The staff is amazing. The always remember your name and truly want you to have the best vacation ever. Food is great for all inclusive. Lobster 3 out of our 5 nights. Roasted rack of lamb for lunch. You don't want to leave the grounds they are so beautiful. Pool atmosphere is perfect, starting off with nice quiet music and by the end of the day the Entertainment staff has you involved in one of their many activities. The night time shows are usually top notch but seemed a little lacking this year. We think they may have lost many of their entertainers to other resort areas after the hurricane. We absolutely love the Palace and anyone we have ever referred her has loved it too! Look for Brian, Azizie and Lorenzo.

"Good food and quieter then the other hotels"
We stayed in RIU Palace for 6 days in Feb, the weather is warm during the day, but need a long sleeve after sunset. we had an ocean view junior suite, the view is amazing, but next time we will give up the view for a cheaper room since we spend most of our time by the pool and restaurants. Beautiful ocean view is every where in the resort.

"Great stay, amazing views"
We had a great stay at the Riu Palace and our group of friends. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The grounds were clean. The oceanfront views were fabulous. The beach was much less crowded than other resort areas. We watched whales each day from the pool or beach! The food we had waa good. My only complaint is that they made it very difficult to get reservations at the nicer restaurants. You had to get in line each a.m. and they would only have approximately 40 spaces open. That seemed like they were steering us towards the buffets, then.

"Just okay"
Just okay, I wouldn't recommend this resort. The buffet wasn't good, the steakhouse was pretty bad, they only had one steak offering. The japanese restaurant wasn't good either, Mahi Mahi was really bland and the tempura plate was way too fried. The French restaurant was amazing though. We didn't get a chance to try the Mexican restaurant. Overall, there are better places for the money

"Great hotel to stay at in Cabo RIU Palace"
At the RIU Palace hotels you can experience resturants that serve you or you can go to buffet. Both places have great food. Plenty of bottle water. Shows every evening. Nice staff of people. You can see the humpback whales from distance in the early part of the year. Amazing. Also you can walk the beach to Cabo San Lucas.

"Nice but NOISY"
My 4th visit to Riu Palace, Cabo. Too noisy for me this time. Loud music and so-called "entertainment" with unbearable microphone voice-overs, starts a 11-AM and doesn't stop until 11-PM. Despite being a large compound, it's hard to escape the noise. Food is very good 80% of the time. Front-desk lobby staff could be more helpful.

"Beautifully Maintained"
We were apprehensive about booking into Cabo because of potential hurricane damage but found nothing noticeable at the Riu Palace. It is a superb resort. The vast array of foods available at the buffet was overwhelming. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. The liquor dispensers in the rooms were convenient if you just wanted to relax and take in the view and the mini bar was well stocked with bottled water, beer and soda. There was a small store located in the lobby which provided "those little items" which you may have forgotten. Taxis were available 24/7. There were five in our party and a taxi ride to just about anywhere, except the airport, was 20 US Dollars one way (FYI). Although, the resort was all inclusive, the staff appreciated a tip or two so bring a lot of single Dollars. There was an ATM located in the lobby, which was out of service when we were there, but we brought plenty of cash so that was not an issue for us. There was a very nice safe located in the room for keeping your passports, etc. Security was "tight" with a gated entrance and fenced compound. The front desk was very helpful, pulling your boarding passes and giving you addresses for places you wanted to go. The beach was beautiful but the sand was very deep so difficult for walking but we did not miss it as the pool areas were just as nice. Cons: The resort is for people on vacation! The noise level is high at night, very high.

1st room next to bar/ kitchen and above disco. Extremely noisy, but a nice room with nice balcony and view. Moved to smaller room / balcony. Two beds which were pushed together.. maid service was sporadic. Night time service non existent. Had to call for towels several times because of this. Bar was not restocked unless we asked and even then told two days. Even when thry cleaned the room, table surfaces were not cleaned.

The RIU Palace is a great place to stay. The hotel has great pools, and outstanding staff, great restaurants and it is one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed at. The staff is constantly cleaning. The drinks provided were top shelf, the restaurant food was excellent and the service was impeccable. If you are looking for a relaxing and beautiful spot to stay, you might want to consider the RIU Palace.

"Beautiful resort on the oceanfront!"
The Riu Palace was beautiful. The staff were welcoming and polite. My only concern would be the food. The buffet is alright, not fantastic! And in order to get to the two nicest restaurants on the resort, one has to wake up at 6 am just to make a reservation. I would recommend the resort to others, my husband and I LOVE great food and we just don't feel like we got it at Riu Palace.

"Cabo was great..this return trip was disappointing"
Expectations were high after having a great vacation during Cabo January '14; unfortunately, the return trip was very disappointing. Having stayed at the Riu Sante Fe previously we were looking forward to the upgraded accommodations and amenities at the Palace. After this trip...IF we return we would probably go to the Sante Fe or find a non all inclusive property. - Reserved "1 king bed, non-smoking room" , received side-by-side full beds and bedding. Sliding between mattresses and tug-of-war with undersized sheets was not planned. - Restaurant reservations are sparse and over 5 nights were we only able to score 1 walk in seating. - Mosquitoes were plentiful in the room. Residual from the storm? We were on the first floor--maybe higher floors are better. - Grounds are okay, but still recovering - Rooms are very noisy. We could here every person in the hall, next to us, and above us--again, a higher floor may be better - Too many parties / weddings - you have to expect a certain level of intoxication and noise at an all inclusive, but the crowd and resulting messes were too much.

Great all around experience, my only complaint is that when I emailed the hotel about transportation from the airport I would have appreciated a heads up about the time share folks who have a station before the official cab line. We got dooped and wound up spending two and a half hours of our vacation at the Grand Solmar hotel. AVOID THESE PEOPLE AT ALL COSTS!!!

"All inclusive but You can't eat at all restaurants"
We went for new years. Stayed 3 nights. When we got there at check in 3 pm the only place to eat is a buffet ( which was good Mexican food btw)..... Expedia advertised several restaurants on site *All Inclusive but turns out you need reservations?! And the reservations can only be made from 8-10 am on the day that you want to eat there. Ridiculous. The Japanese and italian place only seat 30-50 guests and there is 600 rooms so???? Unless you want to eat Mexican buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner don't do the all inclusive because at this hotel you will need reservations to eat at any of the other restaurants on site which are all supposed to be all inclusive.

"Beautiful hotel"
We had a terrific stay at the Riu Palace in Cabo. The staff was exceptional, the food and drink excessive, and the atmosphere around the pool breathtaking! There were plenty of free activities around the hotel, but water sports and taxis were readily available if you wanted to do more. We would recommend taking small USD denomination bills for tipping, because change is very difficult to get around the hotel and it only comes back in pesos. We spent most of our time at the adult pool, but there was another pool for families. The restaurant reservation system is a bit dysfunctional, as you can only book the day of dining and choices were limited. However, we never had bad food anywhere in the hotel. We also drank water around the hotel and never got sick! We had six adults in our group and we had a terrific time!

Beautiful facility, staff "Top Notch", food excellent, beverages beyond plentiful, except for a few very minor issues, no real complaints with complex and stay. We orginally booked our room in Aug14, our daughters could not commit at that time, then the hurricane hit and we wernt sure the place was even still there let alone open. Our 1 daughter joined us in our room, we were charged full price with no additional ammenities, we tried to pre register and was told wait till we get there, our other daughter came after Christmas and got here own room, I thought full price to sleep on a couch in an existing reserved room was a bit excessive, other than that I would highly recommend this resort..
