The front desk was probably the least impressive part of the hotel. They really didn't care that we were there, not very helpful, and not responsive to a running toilet.

I think it is important to note our travel situation. We have a 6 month old and 22 month old. A little hiccup at the airport in not having us on the list for transportation, however that was easily rectified by the onsite staff and a couple Pacifico's. We arrived earlier than check-in so took some time to get lunch and tour the hotel. As we've done Apple trips before, we didn't check in with the onsite Rep. The restaurants didn't take reservations but you better be there right at opening or risk not getting in at all. We only ate at the buffet for breakfast, sometimes lunch and once for dinner. I found it to have great selection and friendly staff catering to us and the kids. Our favorite restaurants were the Steakhouse and Japanese. Staff was wonderful at both and engaged with our two boys. The food was very nice and large portions. Steakhouse puts out a nice New York and the salmon was really good! The bar staff was engaging and very friendly. They knew their drinks and appreciate the tips (brings good service as well!!). The drinks are quite weak so just ask for muy fuerte. Our room had a king size and a sitting area with couch, as well as balcony with view to the ocean. We used up all the space with the 2 provided pack and plays, our stroller and luggage. since the hurricane went through about a year ago, you will find the accommodations to be new and modern. All the amenities worked well, our refrigerator had plenty of water, coke, 7up, Dos Equis and soda water. Each room has a dispenser with a bottle of Jose, Smirnoff, Gin and Brandy. Our days consisted of breakfast, playing on the beach, lots of pool time, kids napping on the chaise lounge while mom and dad took advantage of the bar and wait staff, more pool time, getting ready for dinner and dinner. Our eldest did stay up late enough a few nights where I could take him to the shows. The first part was catered to kids and he enjoyed participating or watching. There were a lot of kids around and he liked to play with his "friends". There is a water park but we found the water at the kids park to be freezing and our 22 month old thought the slides were just a bit too big. I did try the adult park slides and the speed slides were awesome! In all, this is a 4 out of 5 star resort. Very family friendly. The staff is excellent. The view is perfect and has a large beach out front. Food is solid with plenty of options. Take care of the staff and they will take care of you.

Our first time at vacationing in a All-inclusive so nothing to compare it to however, wow..just wow! Staying at the Palace made me feel like royalty. The staff was great and so willing to exceed our expectations. We are not much partiers and the Palace provided the right balance of entertainment and relaxation we were looking for. We stayed in a jr. suite garden room on the 4th floor (4130) and the view was spectacular. The food was great. There is something for everyone. We had a good experience at the steakhouse. Both nights i had the filet and lobster cooked the way i asked. With the stay at The Palace you have access to the Santa Fe and Baja. We definitely felt we made the best choice by staying here. Centrally located with great views of the arches.

This was a second visit to the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas. We came back because we loved it the first time we came here three years ago. This time was every bit as good. The resort had made significant renovations and some upgrades to the site, including updating the decor of the restaurants, and adding a second bar/lounge area and a coffee and pastry shop. The location is beautiful. The resort is very clean. The staff are, without exception, friendly, hard working and helpful (Blanca, a server at the restaurant, felt like a member of our family by the end of the week, and the outdoor bar/pool service staff were outstanding). The food is consistently of high quality, with plenty of variety, fresh ingredients, very well prepared and presented. I can't wait to return.
