Good experience

We checked out of RIU Cabo San Lucas Palace the last day they were open. Closing for 3 months for remodel. The resort was wonderful the food was lacking a lot. Been to many RIU Palace Resorts. There seemed to be a lot of left over food from previous meals. Breakfast, there were dishes of food that was on the night before menu. Dinner had left over hamburgers and hot dogs from lunch. Not a good variety. I am blaming it on the fact they were closing and didn't want to have a ton of food left. For the price I paid, I thought I should of had the same food choices as any other time. Pool was great. Rooms we're spotless.

Time for remodel

On arrival we noticed pa lace was a little rundown. Overall was a good vacation other than beach is non swimable and red flags were up the whole time. Probably should have signs about danger of water which is very rough especially late afternoon. Service was good but wete understaffed at times. We were told by staff they were closing for 3 months for remodel. No bathrooms by pool would be biggest complaint and probably keep me from coming back.

Great Value for the Price

Overall, the hotel was great! Love the swimming pools, bars, restaurants, lobby, nightclub. The only downsides were that climbing in the bathtub was a little risky as the ledge was high, bathtub was slippery, no fan in the shower/restroom. Also, there were steps in the junior suite which could be dangerous if not watching yourself. There were two beds in the room but they were definitely not queen size, more like full size and they were not separated from each other. Lastly, the beach in front of the hotel was not swimmable, but that is not the hotel's fault. Its nature. Would definitely stay there again!!

What's to Love

All-inclusive everything: the cocktails, the grub, the utter awesomeness of it all.

Blue sparkling pools with dynamo ocean views. Pic opp moments, for sure.

Within walking distance to Cabo's El Medano Beach - you can swim, jet ski or bar hop along the shores.

Swoon-worthy views from your balcony - ocean or resort, either way - it's stunning.

Freshly made guacamole for your morning, afternoon, or late night snack. It's delish.

Resort is geared for families and mature adults - not your rowdy spring break revelers.

The Entertainment Team keeps things lively and when you want to let loose, Pacha disco is open at night.

Staying in your room and dining with 24-hour room service. Because you're a rock star.

 

What We'd Change

Reservations are required for the a la carte restaurants and can only be made the day you want to dine there; but stay on top of this and you're in for a treat.

 

Why You Should Go

Perfect location in Cabo - a short trip from the airport to the resort and close to Cabo's nightlife.

Riu's commitment to top notch service will win you over the moment your flip flops hit the resort.

Whale watching is epic here. Best time to see these awe-inspiring creatures - mid-Dec thru mid-April.

Stay sporty - tennis, volleyball, ping pong are included, and for a fee, ride horses on the beach.

See the famous El Arco (meaning "Land's End") from the resort. (Go there and take a Selfie).

RiuLand keeps the kiddos entertained. And, you? Book time in the spa. You deserve it.
