Our Opinion

Stunning grounds, impeccable service, and top-rate facilites make the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas a splendid 5 star resort. Two large infinity pools offer great views of Los Arcos. The beach here is expansive, but swimming in the ocean is not recommend because of strong currents. This popular resort is a great getaway for couples and families. Singles and might prefer the more active and lively setting of the Riu Santa Fe next door. Guest of the Riu Palace can use the facilities of the Riu Santa Fe next door, which is a good feature as the gym and spa are larger at the Santa Fe. There is free wifi in the lobby area.

20 wedding anniversary getaway.

This is a great all inclusive hotel. We don't drink - but to not have to worry about food and drinks makes the vacation that much more relaxing. The staff is great and, most of the time, go out of their way to make your stay a great one. 4 different restaurants for dinner so you don't have long waits to eat. Great getaway hotel.

Front desk scammed many people on room and money.

Got screwed over by the front desk when I arrived along with a bunch of other people who arrived around the same time. I was staying for a few days; girl at the front desk told me it was $700 U.S dollars, she had me pull out my calculator for the conversion and a half hour later my husband said $825 was charged to the card. I wend back and they told me they couldn't give me my money back. They kept claiming the pesos conversion - which I was well aware of and even expressed the girl had me take out a calculator and we took it out again to recalculate. It went on for a good 20 min, until I told them I was going to claim fraud on my card. and they only gave me back $100- not even the $125 they owed me. Also my room was suppose to have two queen beds, and there was a king and a pull out sofa. They said sorry about that too... and that and about 7 other groups of people had the same issue with the bed situation. They just smiled and said they were all booked up to everyone.-- Seriously a beautiful place for jerks to ruin and take advantage of people. I should give one star, but I gave two bc the weather was great and Cabo is beautiful.The service was not bad compared to the front desk and arriving - Staff was pretty friendly.

Riu Palace stay

We recently stayed at Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas for four nights. The place is well maintained and kept clean. The spread is good in the buffet restaurants. Staff is courteous. The only negative experience is that we had booked a Sea view room - the check-in person told us that we could get an upgrade to a junior suite. But it was a garden view suite and that too it was next to a service elevator which was noisy. Be wary of any free upgrades.

Execellent Customer Service

Everyone was so nice! I arrived early, but my room was not available. He tried his best to get me my room. Within an hour he did. Meanwhile, he gave me my wristband to enjoy the hotel as I wanted. From the waiters, bar waiters (Jorge Alfredo and Ana), to the bus man (Alfredo), everyone was so nice and helpful! Cabo is only good for a weekend getaway and you can never go wrong with Riu

Excellent food, mediocre booze.

Overall this hotel was quite cozy and more upscale than the adjacent Riu Santa Fe. There is a lovely open bar with terrace - a great spot to catch the sunrise or sunset. The food was better than expected and on par with many Las Vegas buffets. All-inclusive is a great option but don't expect good wine here - it was rather terrible actually. Hard liquor cocktails or Mexican beer is a safe alternative. We enjoyed strolling along the beach and found it a great property for relaxation. There is not much to do in the area though but the property is satisfactory if you just want some R&R.
