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.


This luxury, beachfront resort located on the Southern Baja California peninsula, has all the amenities, facilities and service that make Riu resorts so popular. Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas is the place to be in Cabo.

Wonderful week in Paradise

This trip was exactly one year ago and it was incredible! After seeing pictures of the renovations, I cannot wait to come back. In terms of food - resorts must be good at mass production, which sometimes means very bland food. However at Riu Palace the food is far from bland. It was amazing how much choice there was at the buffet, as well as the different options for the a la cart dining. So much food!There is nothing better then lying by the pool listening to the sound of the waves crashing against the beach. This is the place for a perfect vacation - it is so beautiful. Service is wonderful, staff are helpful, drinks and food are perfect and the views are incredible. I really cannot wait to come back. Do not hesitate booking this resort for your Cabo trip, you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic holiday!

We stayed at the Riu Palace for the second time March 6 to 13. We loved it the first time we visited in April 2015 and weren't disappointed this time. We booked an ocean view room so knew there would be a decent view, but we were completely blown away with our oceanfront room by the quiet pool. Unobstructed views of the beach and Lands End. We watched the cruise ships come and go and even saw whales pass by our balcony. Breathtaking! We didn't get a Junior Suite this time, rather a King room which had more than enough room for us with a separate sitting area. The renovations are fantastic. We especially loved the new location of the buffet. Eating breakfast and looking at the spectacular views every morning was just amazing. As always, service was above and beyond and the entire resort was spotless. Food was awesome. We especially loved the Krystal. We also like the new system that doesn't require a reservation for the a la cartes. We have visited two other Riu's, including another Palace, and this resort is at the top of our favorite list. We will return, but not during the March spring break. There weren't too many at this hotel for most of our trip, but the night before we left you could see many college age patrons congregating in the bar and the lobby, so we were happy that we didn't chose a week any later in March. The spring breakers at the neighboring Riu Santa Fe were completely out of control the entire time. Our room was on the Santa Fe side, but we were fortunate to be facing front so weren't bothered by the noise at night at all. We will be back for sure!

Great Vacation !

This was our first time in Cabo. Overall the Sunwing experience was good .It was a short trip and good service .Bus transportation to the resort was good as well. The resort was very beautiful and we found it to be very clean with friendly helpful staff. The activity staff were enthusiastic and did a great job with pool activities and evening entertainment .The food was good and the rooms/bed comfortable . There are some stairs ,but they have elevators as well. I was pleased they had decent wine .There are no shops at the Rui except for a tuck shop by the pool ,but the Rui Sante Fe next door has a few to browse . Would recommend getting oeanview ,we enjoyed our balcony. Beach is not swimmable ,but there are chairs to sunbathe with some shade .We could always find chairs with an umbrella by the pool. There is some exercise equipment available and a spa .Overall we would recommend this resort and would visit again.

Amazing trip!

Me and my friends and my wife had a blast here! It was our first time in Cabo and I would definitely go back in an instant. Also, It was our first time in Mexico and I loved it. Me and my friend took the local bus and went into town and did not feel in any danger at any point there during our stay.

Relaxing and wonderful March Break!

First time in Cabo and thankfully stayed at the Riu Palace and not the Riu Santa Fe. Property was beautiful and food was great. Was even able to wear my heels at night without worrying about tripping because everything was close and tiled.I knew that I wasn't going to be impressed with the beach but was too busy at the pool having a fun time that I was ok with it for the most part.Thankfully our area was clean and not as crazy as the Santa Fe side during March Break. Staff always cleaning at all hours of the day. Entertainment staff was amazing at getting us up and doing things most of the day without being pushy. Was being called by my name by the end of the week.There was even a wonderful place beside the resort on the beach for massages that my daughter, her friend and I enjoyed twice.The only thing I have to complain about is that for a highend resort, I was unable to get robes for my room. Maybe it was offered to the better rooms but I had myself, my daughter and her friend and that was a big disappointment for something so trivial. Looking forward to another holiday soon!
