First and foremost I want to say shame on American Airline Vacations because their agent informed me that they price match up til the time of boarding and that is false. You have 24 hours to find a lower price but after that you are sol. We stayed here 6 years ago and thought it would be romantic to go...

We arrived the Friday Oct 19th and were told that they were overbooked and we didnt have a room. We booked the trip 5 months in advance and got bumped. Riu never contacted us before we left just waited for us to fly down. They then transferred our reservation to Riu Sante Fe, but offered no refund. So we paid...

Despite all the good reviews, I was reluctant to stay at another Riu property after visiting below par Paradise Island Riu Palace but after doing research I decided that we would give it a try.

We went the week of October 27 to November 3, 1012 to celebrate our Birthdays and Anniversary. We truly had a wonderful time. Cannot think of anything to complain about, now that says a lot. The staff could not have been more attentive. Everyone from the cooks on the serving line to the housekeeping staff would always greet us with...

My first time to Cabo, but my third time in Mexico staying at the Riu Palace was wonderful. I went the week of October 26 to November 2, 2012 with 3 girlfriends. The weather was beautiful every single moment we were there; around 30 degrees and not a cloud in the sky! We had absolutely no trouble with the service...

If you are looking for an all inclusive resort that is classier than the typicla resort, this is the place to visit. The staff was very professional and took great care of our large group (20). Lulu made sure we were never without a beverage. The food was better than average on the buffet. Placing reservations for the resturants is...

I know there are lots of great hotels in Cabo. But after weighing economics vs. value, we returned to the Riu Palace for the 5th time. We weren't disappointed. Service & Staff: We saw old friends - the wonderful Riu staff. They are working as hard as ever; nothing's changed there. Gave hugs to: Lulu, Esmeralda, Luis, Caesar, Fernando, Tino,...

We just returned from a week vacation (10/27-11/3) at the RIU. My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Palace. After reading many reviews from several months before our trip, we were not sure what to expect. With a couple small bumps in the road to begin our trip, the resort fully surpassed our expectations.

My husband & I were here for a friend's wedding. The RIU was very relaxing, the food is excellent with several food choices each meal including tons of buffets.
