Fabulous 8.6 From 1,187 reviews

Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas All Inclusive
Beyond my expectations!
The hotel exceeded almost all expectations - especially the size, facilities and food! The cocktails are wonderful and the service excellent! We tried the Japanese and Mexican a la carte restaurants, both of which were wonderful and great experiences but potentially even better was the large buffet main restaurant which had an enormous selection of dishes including plentiful seafood and a chocolate fountain! I can't say enough about how impressed I was! The only thing we all said as a family is how depressing the entrance to the hotel was and how difficult it was to find, there are no signs or anything! I don't know if this is out of the hotels control but it's a shame because once inside, everything is so wonderful!

Great time at Riu
Place was amazing, service was great, and we had a great time. Only average part of the resort was the food; the Mexican food was great, but everything else was just average.

Underwhelmed! :(
Not great. Food was mediocre at best. Service was worse. Booked a King & was given 2 doubles pushed together. The only good thing was the location & pool. Very far from city... $15 cab to get downtown. Would not stay again.

Hotel myopia for repeat customer - 3rd & last time
Called hotel before arrival to confirm charge for bringing one extra person to our group of 5 in two rooms. Yet when we got to front desk no one would admit to such confirmation and jacked up the price on us. Restaurants no longer require rsvp but will limit guests so get there early or they will not seat you even with empty tables. Food has gone down hill. Remodel is nice in common areas and now has walk-in showers in bedroom but bedroom itself is dated.

Overall a nice stay but a few issues that we had for others to consider when booking: 1.) The hotel offers partial ocean view, ocean view, and ocean front, among other categories. We paid extra for ocean front but when we arrived they put us in what I could categorize as an ocean view room. The room was very near the lobby, behind all of the pool/garden areas. You could see directly out to the ocean (through the trees and over the garden/pool) but it was by no means ocean front. I had to debate the location with 2 different people at the front desk before being moved to a room at the end of the building, with a patio that directly overlooks the beach. Appreciate them correcting it but it shouldn't have been that difficult and should have been to begin with. 2.) The rooms arent very sound proof. Any noise in the hallway is very loud in the room. Housekeepers would arrive at 8a every morning rolling carts and talking loudly without consideration of the sleeping customers on the other side of the door. Other guests were also not generally considerate of the condition which surely didn't impact only my room. 3.) They used to have an indoor dance club, but have now replaced it with a bar on the beach level that doubles as a dance club. I'm ok with moving the venue, but the new club was only open 1 of the 3 nights we were there. I liked the old dance club. Otherwise, it was a fun and relaxing escape and I love Cabo.
