Very Good8.0
5/5 everything besides food. Food maybe 2.5/5
Great stay. Every staff member was courteous. Drinks were made with food alcohol. The food like many others have said was mediocre at best. I think this is pretty universal for all inclusive hotels in this price range. After the first couple nights we thought we got our monies worth for food and started going to the beach/marina area for Mexican food. We would walk to Mango Deck in the day from the beach (20 mins) and cab back. If I could find another hotel in the same location, service, cleanliness, etc with better food I’d probably make the jump, but I don’t think it exist and don’t want to pay $6000 for 2 people for 5 nights for better food. Cabo is fun because it’s safe enough to leave the resort, and felt the food was atleast good enough to get us filled up without feeling sick

Go to RIU only if you want food poisoning
I read so many reviews before booking this resort & hoped it was just a few unlucky people having a bad experience but that isn’t the case. My daughter got sick a couple days into the trip even though we were very careful about what we ate- sticking to just fruits and vegetables and only drank the bottled water. On our last night (my birthday no less) I ended up getting a horrible case of food poisoning that consisted of 24H of nonstop vomiting, dehydration and a headache. It was the most miserable night & plane ride home. At 9 AM the cleaning lady pounded on our door telling us we had to checkout even though checkout was at noon. We let the hotel know I had gotten sick and they didn’t care; apparently this is a regular occurrence here. The food is average at best and trust me, by day 2 you will be very sick of it. The pool is 4’ deep and closes at 7 PM. We paid $2200/week to have a swim out room so we could have our own pool but it was only 3’ deep and the size of a hot tub. It is incredibly loud at night and difficult to sleep. The only positive was the wait staff (especially Alex at the pool) were all very friendly & helpful. If I could do it all again I would have just skipped Mexico altogether. You can’t go in the ocean because the waves are too rough. Going into town you will just be accosted by people chasing you down the street trying to get money from tourists. Private shuttle was scary. Best part of trip was realizing how lucky we are to live in America.

My sons wedding destination.
Beautiful wedding destination for my son. Great food great service great views. Only thing wrong was out of anyone’s control. Mother Nature the wave 🌊 we’re too strong could not get it to water. But the amazing pools made up for it.
