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.

Phenomenal Resort!

My fiancé and I stayed at this resort for a destination wedding last January. We stayed for a total of four nights, and we enjoyed every second of it. From the incredibly friendly and helpful hotel staff, to the stunning views and the delicious food, everything was absolutely exceptional. I truly cannot say enough good things about this resort, and I would recommend it to anyone. We cannot wait to go back for our second visit!

Riu palace Cabo

My family and I go to Cabo every year. We've stayed at the Riu palace three or four times and we live it. There is so much to do and the service is amazing. It is also very kid friendly. Definitely recommend it!

Summer getaway

Truly a loved this hotel property. Pro's and con's follow of course.Pro's: All-Inclusive meals and beverages - NICE! Access to the onsite pools were easy for adults and kiddies. Entertainment everyday for all ages. Rooms nicely equipped with mounts of liquor bottles for the choosing and fridge loaded up with soft drinks, bottled water and beer! SWEETness! Beds very comfortable. Fitness center has a great panorama view of the beach and the Arch. Simply breath-taking to workout with the beach view.Con's: Severity undertone on the beach, swim at your own risk! Access to hotel rooms not easy, especially for handicapped guests. No wheelchairs onsite or nearby elevators upon request. Overall, we will be back!

Loved the Old Riu Palace Cabo

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Palace Dec 2015 for 2nd time. We love it there - the hotel was very spanish style and had beautiful tile and wrought iron and the most beautiful open air lounge with a gorgeous view out to El Arco. We love the restaurants - but mostly the place down near the beach that is open for lunch. We were looking into booking sometime for the new year 2017 and I had heard from the travel agent that they had done some renovations. I went online today and saw some pics of the "improvements". How depressing. They have done with the Riu Palace Cabo what they have done with the Riu Playacar and many others on the Mayan Riviera. Made it super modern - alot of white, and glass - very monochromatic...very cold feeling. We feel - and I have heard many many many other people who come from Canada and the states who also feel - that we don't go to Mexico to stay at a super modern looking hotel. This hotel looks like it has lost all its warmth and character...looks like a hotel in New York or something. When will the Riu designers realize that North Americans don't love that sleek modern look and travel to Mexico instead to see the beautiful mexican finishes - tile, bright colors, pottery, etc. We have stayed at Riu hotels along the Mayan Riviera and they are all systematically suffering the same fate..which makes me feel sad and also that we have to look for another place to stay. The Riu Palace Riviera Maya is my absolute fav Riu ..we have stayed there 3 times...and I'm sure they will be next to undergo this kind of facelift. Oh well - anyone know of a nice place to stay on the Mayan Riviera with actual Mexican feel and look to it?

Hotel riu

All inclusive is the best.the food was sensational everyday at any given time..heaps of waiters around the pools topping up drinks and foods throughout the days as well..great pools,not far from main town dining and sites in a cab..really you couldn't want for more and if you do then your going to pay a lot more elsewhere just to impress your friends...
