Nice Hotel, Not Great Follow-Through
RIU Class Member -- Stayed at this location before the remodel, and looked forward to seeing the improvements. Made a reservation through RIU, and requested a room near the lobby and restaurants since my wife has limited mobility. We were assigned to a room about as far as possible from the main area, and near the extremely loud sound of the parties next door at Riu Santa Fe. Requested a change, but computers were down. Marimar at reception did a great job of getting us assigned to a more appropriate room when we returned after dinner. When I made the reservation, I noted that we were returning to Riu Palace to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday, I wasn't expecting champagne and roses, but thought there would be at least a card of congratulations.... Crickets from Riu. I sent a message to the manager, expressing appreciation for Marimar, and concerns about the failure to recognize the room location requests, and the lack of acknowledgement of the significant life events we were celebrating. Zero Response. Overall, we enjoyed the room, the pools, the restaurants and overall facilities. Staff were wonderful, especially yAide in the restaurants. However, the lack of customer response was a real negative.
Quiet resort; a solid dose of spoiling
The resort was at about 60% capacity; nice and quiet; very relaxed. Extensive beach. 4 Stars from me, because there was absolutely no swimming in the ocean. ZERO. the undertow is far too dangerous....no really....I foolishly tried - stay OUT! Fortunately, the pools are lovely....our swim-out room was awesome!
Well maintained, warm and inviting environment. Superior restaurant choices with an exceptional gluten free menu selection to satisfy my wife’s needs. Friendly curteous staff that provided excellent service from the time of check-in through check-out.
Love staying at all the Riu
Hotel was clean, staff friendly, food was good, plenty of pool side and beach chairs, I have always enjoyed the Riu hotels we stayed at. The only down side was you couldn't go in the ocean here :) But other than that, a very nice stay.
This was our first time in Cabo. The Riu Palace was amazing! Great food, great staff, wonderful, relaxing atmosphere. The food was excellent and a great variety. We enjoyed the privileges to visit the other Riu properties while we were there but the Palace was great in itself. We would go back today!
