CARDIO GYM
CLAIRE D.
Apr 18 2019
All 5 of the treadmills are not usable. Every belt needs to be replaced. I went once and was afraid I would hurt my back. Everyone I met in the gym said same thing. Many guests were trying to use the gym. There is only 1 bike or elliptical for a substitution.

I think this is the top of the line for RIU and we weren’t disappointed in any way. Exceptionally clean, staff very friendly, competent and efficient. Food very good. First time in the “palace “ level. Hard to beat so will always go to it in future wherever we go. First rate!
Customer Rating: 

Amazing location, service and hospitality. Overall an amazing family destination!

Overall very pleased withe RIU Palace. The staff is highly visible in their relentless efforts to please and keep a clean facility. We traveled with 3 children ages 10, 15 and 17. The entertainment at best was tolerable to them...and us. The shows appeared to cater towards an older demographic. I was also very surprised to learn that despite having a basketball court and tennis courts, that the resort did not have available to us a basketball, tennis racket, or even a simple football or frisbie to borrow to use on the beach. Everything else was exceptional, and we have already recommended this location and destination to several friends and colleagues.

First time at a Riu and will definitely be going back. Very clean resort, good restaurants. Very cool that they are all first come first serve for supper, no booking reservations and having to work your day around the times. Kids had a blast in the pool and on the beach. The waterpark at the neighboring Sante Fe was pretty decent, but we only went once, pool at the Palace was better. Good & friendly staff around the pool were serving us the margaritas quickly. If you haven't been here, give it a try. You won't be disappointed!

The resort is a wonderful place to stay. The location is perfect, the amenities are wonderful, the food is great! The staff are what makes it so very special. A few of the people that blessed us-Mariele works RIULand (for kids, even though we had none), Cesar, Geraldo, Zuly, Yair, Blanca, Yolanda,and Aide were all part of the wait staff. Even the contractors working on the building were kind and helpful. Every face of RIU we saw had a smile! I even got good-bye hugs!

This hotel is everything we read in the reviews and more. Beautiful hotel and grounds with amazing views galore. Very clean in every sense. So many restaurants and food options to choose from for all meals. I’ll definitely be back. They even had a night we ate lobster and crabs all you can eat, so sooo good! They have all suites, large and very clean. It is also generally pretty chill and calm. It’s not for anybody looking to party all night which we LOVED! Perfect for relaxing, eating, drinking and laying on the pool all day. They play music at the sun up bar pool, but just right and perfect ambience. I’m in my late 30’s so this was just what the doctor ordered for spring break as I work in education. I would definitely recommend. The pictures you see don’t do this hotel justice. LOVED IT!!!

Amazing

First time visitors to Cabo and we are sooo happy we stayed at the RIU Palace. The hotel offers a little something for everyone. Kid's pool, good food, cold drinks, clean environment and amazing views of El Arco. If you can afford to stay here instead of the RIU Sante Fe and are looking for a more refined experience I highly recommend you pay the extra money.

Excellent

First time there. Booked through their site. Can't give enough kudos! From customer service rep to shuttle arrangements to concierge EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING was fabulous. I have read other comments about rooms being outdated...totally not the case. Now if you are into led wall lighting and white lacquered headboards yeah this place is not for you. If you can't take on a few stairs or want quick access to an elevator in front of your room...this hotel may not be for you. If you are a couple try to get jr suite room #4090 you will not be disappointed!
