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.

Dream Relaxation

Just as good as the last time we stayed here. We stayed at the Riu Palace 1 month after Hurricane Lidia hit the Riu Santa Fe. We couldn't believe how much they had restored the resort and almost as if nothing happened. The Riu Palace is absolutely amazing from the rooms to the food to the bars and activities. You will not be disappointed to stay here. The staff are so accommodating and take great pride in doing everything they can to make your stay the best ever. We stayed here a few years ago and did all the tour things and was very impressed with Cabo Adventures company for the tours. This time we only did one tour in our week stay and decided we just wanted to relax and destress for a week. There is no better place to do that than the Riu Palace. This resort is a 50 minute walk into the town on the beach and is a great way to see the rest of the resorts on the beach.

Hotel Rui Palace

Worst hotel and service I have ever experience entire in my life.arrived early to be told to move your car from the present position as the receptionist parked there. Got a 16.00 to be told the owner was trying to sell and has lost interest and should have ran.

beautiful hotel

We had the swim-out room we loved it , after dinner and the show we could get in and get cooled off before bed. Our room was well cleaned and mini fridge restocked every day. The hair dryer in our room would only work for a couple of seconds and the breaker wood turn it off. The air worked great. The entertainment at the pool was wonderful friendly and so much fun. Always something going on at the pool. We ate at the buffet the 1st night it was good. The 2nd night we had Krystal restaurant it was good but the portions were very small the menu was very limited. We ate at the Mexican restaurant for dinner one night, then the next day had lunch there, they serve Italian food for lunch and Mexican at night both meals were fantastic. The steak house was the best dinner we had. The breakfast buffet was ok. the only issue we had was the electric went out at the entire hotel for 2 hours so no flushing the toilets , the restaurants closed no food no air-condition.

Not impressed at all!!!!

My wife and I have stayed at other riu properties and thought this would be a similar experience....NOT AT ALL!!!!!power was out several hours when we arrived(due to previous storm damage may be?)...The food was at best "average". Staff was nice and property/ beaches were beautiful! We could not avoid those damn flies 😝😝 everywhere!!! Food should always be covered in this environment, no excuses! I had to throw meals away several times after noticing dead flies on my plate. Couldn't wait to get back home.

Worst Service Ever!

This is by far the worst experience I have ever had! Service here is $hit! Food is old dried out and tasteless. You can tell that they are way under staffed! Today I had to call the front desk twice because room service will not answer for OVER AN HOUR and a HALF.... 2 hours later I still had not received my order. This place sucks!!! Staff is unfriendly and rude, you can’t pull a smile out of any of them. Room is nasty. The jackhammers at 8:00 outside our (ocean view) room is a living hell! I can’t say enough bad things about this place.
