My family of all adults visited the Riu Palace. Definitely the all inclusive resort you want to go to in Cabo. Great location so you can visit lover's beach with an easy water taxi ride or go into downtown cabo which is maybe five mins away driving. This is a great place to be for the Cabo experience done right....

For a large resort it did not seem overwhelming. Great service on every level. Very clean and well maintained resort. Evening shows were well done. Nice option of going next door to their Sante Fe resort. Buffet had lots to choose from. Missed the theme nights in buffet. They did not do that this visit but hope it comes back....

Reservations to restaurants were hard to get. Stood in line 30 minutes each time. We paid for ocean front room and they didn't have one....They offered us a dinner at steak house without a reservation as compensation for this,?? Breakfast was only decent meal. Staff was friendly but corporate office needs to step up and make it a true 5...

This place is wonderful! I like everything about it. If you want more activity go next door to the Santa Fe-----it is much quieter at the Palace. Otherwise just hang out and be treated like a king! The food is very good, and everything was spotless. I wish the workout facility was larger, but it has a great location overlooking...

Tip your servers and they will go above and beyond. Maid service at least twice a day. Stayed on 2nd floor and had view of pool and ocean. Grounds were beautiful and...

Great staff, good facilities. Alas no smoke free areas, at least none that are enforced. Tried to stay near the spa building hoping that this would be far enough away from the main outdoor activity centers to avoid smokers (my wife is allergic to cigarette smoke). No luck, they sit by the pool and smoke until it is time to...

First let me demystify Cabo for you a little: There are bascially 3 Cabos 1) San Jose de Cabo 2) Cabo San Lucas 3) Everything around both of these Cabos. 1) The San Jose de Cabo is really where you fly into, the Airport code for all of them is SJD. Cabo San Lucas Libramienta Aeropuerto. Most of the great...
