Birthday celebration!
Twylyn, Fort Worth, Texas
Mon Sep 24 18:45:26 EDT 2018
The pool party is a great addition! Second visit there; uncontrolled weather conditions (again) caused water excursions to be canceled. Staff was not as “catering”. Grounds are well maintained! Proximity to downtown is good.

Big wedding and more
Zetaphy, Vancouver, Canada

My wife and I got married at the Palace in January and returned for a second visit in March. We could not have been happier with either trip. We had read many reviews of weddings at this resort which all had many fewer guests than ours – we arrived with some concerns that they may not be well suited to larger groups (we brought about 100 guests). However, this was not the case and everything went very well, all guests felt that the experience and service overall was top quality and extremely attentive. Management went above and beyond to make sure our group’s needs were taken care of. Personalized touches such as surprise wine and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our room and a birthday cake brought to one of our guests at dinner were greatly appreciated. There are a variety of entertainment/events scheduled throughout the week suitable for everyone. My favourites were the pool foam party (don’t miss it!) and white party. Other events ranged from high quality shows to bingo and cooking lessons. Although the drinks definitely flowed there was undoubtedly more decorum at the Palace than Riu’s sister resort the Sante Fe next door; which was also a lot of fun but tended to cater to a younger (and thirstier) crowd. One of the benefits of the Palace was that they had much more premium drinks available – think: Patron Margaritas! Dining was great with options to suit just about any taste. While the restaurant options were delicious, I particularly enjoyed the buffet which by and large had quality food and service. Servers at the buffet usually remembered our names and would always save us a table when they saw us walk down for a meal which was a wonderful personal touch. Don’t miss Mexican night! If you leave the resort you are a short cab ride to the downtown marina, alternatively this is a nice ~30 minute walk down the beach where there are plenty of places to stop for an inexpensive massage or a drink/bite. My two favourite spots are the Office restaurant for a Mexican/pub style lunch on the beach or Mango Deck which is more of a bar/nightclub. About a 30-45 minute cab ride away is downtown (old) San Jose Del Cabo which has beautiful architecture, unique shops and restaurants; it feels much less like a touristy spot and more like the ‘real Mexico’. If you get a chance this is a great outing. If you have mobility issues be aware that this is a very large resort. With the exception of the beach, the resort is accessible via ramp/elevator for wheelchairs. But be prepared that there may be some distances in between. One final note: while gratuities aren’t required, they are greatly appreciated and in my experience great service will become incredible service. The cost of living in Cabo is one of the highest in all of Mexico.

Amazing staff, good food and not crowded but no direct access to the sea.

I had the chance to spend a week on this resort and I found it really great for the staff, Bere, Lili, the ping pong master ( that I'm sorry I forget his name ), Roberto and all the rest of the TEAM were able to make me laugh and keep me busy and in shape during the day in the pool drinking and eating good food and drinks. The only down side that I didn't read anywhere was they always have red flag to access the sea, justification is high waves and current, but.....if I go in a place like that I mainly want to enjoy the beach and the sea...and there is not possible, unless you take a cab and go to some island or the cliff close to the harbor. That's why 4 stars, but if you do not care about ocean, that is a great place to stay.

Amazing as always

First off, I want to thank Jorge for always making himself available & ensuring that our vacation was perfect. This was our 4th trip here & it just gets better every time. Everything from food, drinks, customer service & maid service was excellent. This vacation we spent all our time at the quiet pool due to our amazing waiter Junior. He is very experienced for his age & we looked forward to seeing him every day. He is a very hard worker & really paid attention to what his customers wanted. I want to list a few of our favourite staff members for you to watch out for. Bartenders in the lobby bar, Raul & Roberto are always friendly & make excellent drinks. Waitresses Hipolita & Cap Cece, they always deliver drinks with the most beautiful smiles. Buffet, Iris & Dulce always look after you with their great personalities. Antonio in the Steak restaurant, what a fabulous happy waiter that served us an amazing meal. Every staff member we had was amazing but the above mentioned have left a wonderful impression on us & we look forward to coming back & seeing them again. Our maid service was first class, she always had lovely little touches added to our room which made us look forward to opening the door & walking in. The one negative comment I gave last year was the wine & it has really improved, so they do listen to the comments you make. To the staff at the Riu Palace...thank you so much for making our vacation perfect & we look forward to coming back again soon & seeing our new friends that work at this beautiful resort. You are truly all first class.

Mediocre at best

I found mostly everything at the resort mediocre at best. The only good parts of the hotel were the pool and the view of the ocean. Having everything be all inclusive is always nice and convenient, but the food left a lot to be desired. I wouldn’t consider anything we ate good, even at the specialty reataraunts. Service was just ok — friendly at the restaurants and buffets, but not very attentive at the pool. You can not swim on the beach here which another big downside. It is a very long walk down to the swimmable areas and you will mostly likely want to take a cab. There are much better resorts on the swimmable areas as well, which is why if I return to Cabo I will not stay at the Riu Palace again.
