"Mostly" Good. Jacuzzi Suite not with the extra $500+
DAC_CMC, Illinois

I am currently staying at the Riu Cabo in a Jacuzzi Suite; first the good: Resort is spotless, views are beautiful, staff is very friendly and the food has far exceeded our expectation. Cleanliness: the cleaning staff is wonderful. They perform a detailed cleaning daily including mopping the tile floor. I've been to other all-inclusives where the maid staff is just so so, not here. Views: beautiful views everywhere you look. Awesome. Beach is very nice, clean lots of room. Pools are huge and not crowded. Staff: the grounds are constantly being manicured and every inch of this facility is spotless. Food: awesome food, even the buffets are high quality. Very happy with selection and quality. Now the bad: air conditioner works poorly and the outdoor jacuzzi is kind of a joke. air conditioner: the air con will not go below 73 degrees and the blower runs non-stop even to keep it at that temp. Very annoying and makes it hard to sleep. I like my night temp around 68 and the constant blowing of the fan keeps me up at night. I complained to the front desk and was told that my room is too large for the aircon. Not my problem!! Size it correctly, poor excuse. Jacuzzi: not comfortable for 2 people, jets are very weak. Not worthy of being called a jacuzzi. The other issue is when I looked at jacuzzi rooms on YouTube, the jacuzzi was located up exterior stairs on an upper level. I was disappointed that ours was not. Bottom line, not worth the extra cost. In summary, I would recommend this resort, but purchase smart. Stick with an ocean view junior suite and verify that the aircon works the day you get there. After night after annoying night, I'm finally digging into it but a little late. Leaving in couple days.

A great getaway....

We were last at the Riu Palace in Feb 2015 and knew before we went this time that there had been a major overhaul so were expecting changes. We liked some of the changes but not all. First the upgrades/renos to the rooms - wonderful. The update to the bathrooms was great. The walk in shower with the rain showerhead was a highlight - would like to have one in my home.The rest of the bathroom was also a step above what it had been. Now it's incredibly clean and sleek. Liked the new recepticals for powering up electronic devices and the focused reading lights for each side of the bed were a bonus. A great update. I will admit that I preferred the old spanish/mexican feel decor that they had in the main areas to their new look. It's a lot of glass, metal, etc. Very modern and clean looking - if I hadn't been here before I probably would have liked it better. They got rid of the jewelry shop in the main lobby and put in a 24 hour snack bar - loved it. The computers with wifi access there were great and only rarely had a line up. The wifi access around the rest of the resort was also great - could log on through my iPad no problem throughout the resort. The big main buffet restaurant also had some changes - the food section was reduced and the seating area enlarged. There was still lots of great food and again if I hadn't been here before it would have been fine. I do have to comment on the staff - everybody from front check-in to the cleaning staff and everybody in between were great. Always friendly with a big smile and 'hola'. The table service in the bars and in the pool areas was consistently good and staff worked hard at keeping things clean and running on time. A big shout out to Mike - the 'boss' of the "Krystal" who was very personable and made everyone feel special. He took the time to visit each table to check on the service, food, etc to make sure that everything was just right. If it wasn't he had it fixed immediately but we never had anything wrong with our meals or service there. The main bar off the lobby had a great pianist in the early evening and he was very enjoyable to listen to. Check to hotel schedule to see what nights he plays. Would I go again, yup!! Love the Riu Palace resorts....

Excellent Resort

stayed for 8 days in Feb. 2017, well maintained property Restaurants were great with good service and selection + food was fantastic Resort has 2 pool complexes both with swim-up bars - one pool had the Riu-Fun-Crew which is where we hung out, the other a little more laid back Pool bartenders and wait staff were attentive and kept our cocktails coming Rooms were clean and in good working order + Housekeeping did a great job I only gave this Riu Palace 4 stars because the other Riu Palace properties we have stayed at, had Spa's on the property with hot tubs and massage service - this one did not, it only had a beach massage tent

Wonderful Vacation

We came to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary and were not disappointed. We were upgraded to an ocean front room which gave us beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the water and a direct view of Lover's Beach. We could see fish jumping and heard sea lions each morning. The food was excellent with a great selection in the buffets. Our favourite ala carte was the Indian. We enjoyed many hours by the pool, received excellent poolside service and enjoyed the "foam party" very much. We like that there was a quieter pool and an activity pool which gave options depending on your day. The rooms were kept very clean and we liked the option of room service for snacks and coffee in the morning. It would be nice if the hotel offered shuttle service to and from town, however, I suspect this is not an option due to Cab Driver's Union. Would not hesitate to recommend or return to this beautiful resort.

Fabulous vacation
