Too big
MICHAEL S.
Nov 13 2018
This resort is just too big!! The coziness just wasnt there. There was no entertainment worth going to watch everything was in the Santa Fe. We love the evening shows so was very disappointed in that. Dont get me wrong we had a great time otherwise!!

Each room looked out at the ocean. It was beautiful. The only complaint that I have, is that they did not leave wash cloths in the rooms. I had to request these. But other than that, it was great.

Disappointed honeymooners
ROBERT E.
Oct 31 2018
Very Disappointed that when we arrived they had no clue we were there on our honeymoon even though we booked a honeymoon plus package. They said unless you do the wedding here we really don't know about it and then blamed Apple for not letting them know. Upon arrival we tried calling the front desk for over 20 minutes and eventually had to just walk down and talk with them as no one answered. Also, we were supposed to have $700 ++ in resort credits and when I asked they said no but ok, we will give you these coupons. Talk about deceiving. Also, the shower in our room flooded our entire room due to extremely slow drainage. They offered to move us but to a room that wasn't even half of what we ordered, so instead we had to leave the room for 3 plus hours and wait for them to clean it. We visited another property while down in Cabo and the service and quality compared to Riu was 10x what Riu was. In no way should this location have 6 golden apples. Service, quality of food, rooms were just not up to par or what we were expecting considering you give the same value to le blanc which was amazing. I will not be going back to this property and not 100% sure about apple at this time since the rating was so far off. As well as being directed to contact customer service when I got home instead of my booking agent helping me when I emailed her.

Love the view. Hotel was clean and mostly friendly staff. My only complaint is the everyday overserving at the swim up bar! They pulled people out of the pool daily and would put them in a lounge chair and let them get sick everywhere.

This was our first trip to Cabo and we were not sure how it would compare to the Riviera Maya since we normally go there. I will say this trip was wonderful! We will be going back next year. We love that it is only a 2 hour flight to paradise. The only thing that we did miss was the tropical feel, it is more of a desert feel. The hotel was fantastic and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The grounds were beautiful and one of the cleanest we have been to. The only thing that would be a 4 star in our room was the bed, it was a little too soft for my back. The maid service is the best I have seen. Our room was spotless every day, even the floors and the balcony. You can't fo into the water in this area so if you are a beach swimmer this is not the resort for you. The service around the pool was great and we really never had to wait for a drink. The food was good, I am a picky eater with some food allergies but was able to find great tasting food. The Steakhouse was our favorite and we did not like the Italian. The general buffet was great with lots of choices and we would have been satisfied with just that. The check in and check out process was a breeze. We were supposed to check out at 11:00 am and we did not leave until 2:00 pm, however I ate something that did not set well with my stomach the night before we left and could not get out of bed. Because I was so sick, my husband asked if we could stay in the room longer. The manager was so nice and allowed me to stay in bed until 1:30. My husband checked us out and we left for the airport. As I said we will be back next year and will be bringing more family. Due to the food sickness I would give this resort a 4.8 out of 5 stars!

The views at this resort were awesome. Didn't care for the service that much. Although we came across SOME friendly staff, the majority of them just stared at us and made us speak first no matter where we were, bar, restaurant, front desk, etc. On a scale of 1-10 I would give the food a 4. The maid came to our room several times a day which was okay. Wish there were more daily activities at this resort. We had to walk over to the RIU Santa Fe resort for all of the entertainment which was a bit tiring sometimes because of the long flight of stairs. The main thing I didn't like is that it was hard for us to just lay back and relax on the beach because they allow people to come up on the property and attempt to sell whatever it is they desire. We were offered everything from massages to DRUGS...seriously? When we stayed in other areas of Mexico, this was NOT allowed. There were not trespassers at all. We didn't want to close our eyes while laying out on the beach because we were too scared someone would take our things! Nice resort but I more than likely would never stay there again.

In spite of having to miss our connecting flight and missing the first day of our vacation, we enjoyed the days we did have. The place is kept spotlessly clean, people are cleaning all of the time. The food at the buffet is extremely good. Everyone of the staff her was friendly and nice to us. Service was outstanding. Never felt ill at ease here about anything at all. Loved it and hope to return.

Great value jewelry, Honest Vendor

If you want good jewelry from an honest vendor go see 'White Gloves Alfredo' on the beach at the Riu Palace. I've been buying from him for years and he doesn't defraud by faking the 925 stamp.....😀....check him out

Fabulous place to relax for a long weekend!

We stayed here for 3 nights in November, and from check in to checkout felt spoilt to the max! The rooms were cleaned impeccably everyday with special treats at turndown. The pool staff were amazing and kept us supplied in drinks all day. Loved my daily speciality coffee from the cappuccino bar, the views from there were breathtaking! The buffet restaurants were good, but the fine dining restaurants in the evening were excellent, my favourite was the steak house! Seeing as it’s just over an hour flight for a quick getaway, we will definitely be heading back there soon for some much needed R & R. Thank you to all the staff at Riu Palace for taking such great care of us!

Great hotel in Cabo!

We stayed at the Riu Palace for a week during the 1st week of November. Our stay was wonderful! The staff was friendly and very attentive. The housekeeping staff did a great job on our room each day. The food and beverages were great as well. After reading other reviews I was nervous about the food here, but I think people forget that this is an all inclusive resort that is not top of the line. If you are a foodie that is looking for gourmet food, you might consider a different hotel. We ate steak most every night and loved the breakfast buffet each morning. I will say that room service was slow and the menu was not big by any means. But overall we enjoyed food and drinks here. The Riu website does say that men are required to wear long pants to the theme restaurants - this was not true. Shorts were allowed, as long as they were not bathing suits. This would have been helpful information when we were packing! The sunrise was beautiful each morning. We found the gym to be adequate for our needs as well. We visited the marina twice and chose to take the taxi for $14 rather than walking along the beach. My biggest complaint with the resort is that our king size bed was 2 double beds pushed together... All in all we would definitely return to this resort in the future!

Good time

We spent an enjoyable 2 weeks at the Riu Palace. Perfect desert climate with cool nights. One of the better buffets so far. The beach surf is a little rough but on calmer days you can go for a swim if you time your entry and exit between waves. Enjoyed dining in town and snorkelling in Cabo Pulmo. Friendly and courteous staff. Thanks for a great vacation.

Stunning resort!

What a stunning resort! The view from the resort and almost every room is amazing, toward the arch and Lover's Beach. The resort is all inclusive, even the mini bar in the room! The food in their six restaurants was excellent, the two huge pools are clean and have a great ocean view. One pool is loud, though, with music and animation for much of the day, and nightly entertainment sometimes until 11 pm. So we chose to move to the quiet side of the hotel and used the quiet pool. The beach out front is glorious, you can swim in the ocean most of the time or walk 20 minutes down to Medano Beach. Also, the sister resort next door, the Santa Fe, can be used including their huge water park. We really enjoyed our time there.
