The Riu Palace is beautiful! There are a lot of places to lounge around and relax and there's delicious food and drink 24/7. The buffets are amazing! Try the guacamole with some chips! The resort evening entertainment was enjoyable! They performed a great rendition of Grease! Our biggest issue at the resort was the musty, mildewy smell in our room....

We have stayed at only a few "all inclusives" during our many vacations in Mexico. They were always with a larger group of friends at a wedding, or a celebration of some sort such as this occassion and we had a wonderful time. RIU Palace is a very large resort that caters to mosty Canadians and Americans, although there were...

Let me start by saying I do not drink and wanted some peace and quiet. The room I was in was sorta small for the 300 a night we paid, with older tv. Everything about this hotel was super clean and grounds kept emaculate. There are 2 pools with one being the party pool and one being the quieter pool....

First and foremost I want to say shame on American Airline Vacations because their agent informed me that they price match up til the time of boarding and that is false.

We arrived the Friday Oct 19th and were told that they were overbooked and we didnt have a room. We booked the trip 5 months in advance and got bumped. Riu never contacted us before we left just waited for us to fly down. They then transferred our reservation to Riu Sante Fe, but offered no refund. So we paid...

Despite all the good reviews, I was reluctant to stay at another Riu property after visiting below par Paradise Island Riu Palace but after doing research I decided that we would give it a try.

My first time to Cabo, but my third time in Mexico staying at the Riu Palace was wonderful. I went the week of October 26 to November 2, 2012 with 3 girlfriends.

If you are looking for an all inclusive resort that is classier than the typicla resort, this is the place to visit. The staff was very professional and took great care of our large group (20).
