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. The hotel...

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. The service is great- especially the entertainment crew- so fun! Our room was fairly close off the lobby which was nice because we didn't have to walk far to get to...

Outstanding bang for the buck! Great amenities, superb location and amenities, super clean and a great assortment of cuisine. WIFI is free, but they have to overcome the necessity to enter a ten digit code each and every time access is wanted. For sports enthusiasts, lots of water sports and good golf opportunities. For English TV sports enthusiasts, pickings are...

We arrived at Riu Palace, after a very expensive taxi ride, to find they did not have our reservation. The couple in line behind us had been given a key to a room only to walk in on other guest already in the room! They brought everyone in the check-in line rum punch. When I asked if there was something...

I usually enjoy every vacation I go on buy this was the worst vacation experience I have ever had. For starters, these are the MOST uncomfortable beds I've ever slept on in my life. It was like sleeping on the floor--actually the floor might've been better. The hotel staff was un-courteous. I was never even able to enjoy one "nice...
