We have taken 2 trips to the Riu Palace in cabo. First trip was in april 2010. We were planning a destination wedding there in May 2011, and wanted to check out the resort ahead of time. I do suggest doing that to any bride planning a destination wedding. I wouldn't have made the same choices if I hadn't been...

Unlike most reviewers, we just traveled to the Riu with our children (5 and 12). There weren't many families there and we were concerned about that at first...but our children had a blast! We had to dodge groups of drunken Spring Breakers a few times, mostly because of language and goofiness...but overall, it was a very family friendly resort. The...

We have just arrived back from a two week vacation from Riu Palace, Los Cabos.

My husband and I have traveled to Mexico several times in the past few years and this resort is among the best we have been to. I have never seen such a clean resort. The staff was always cleaning, and you would never know that the resort was full. It is a beautiful facility and extremely well maintained. The food...

My wife and I stayed there from March 12th to the 15th (we are both 30). To get there we took a pre paid shuttle. Make sure you walk through the airport, until you are outside to meet with your shuttle. Our shuttle driver was in a uniform and had our names and the hotel we were staying at. The...

I've let a month go by since our trip to Cabo. To the point - the Palace is a beautiful structure with wonderful pools and lounging facilities which was 80% of what i wanted in a destination. With that being said, the free drinks are, well....very disappointing. The level of which the drinks are watered down is a big disappointment....
