worst experience

Not to down cheap caribbean, but the Riu is no where 4.5 stars. The site states no spring breakers, well they overwhelmed the place. The Riu accommodated them over the middle aged vacationers. I feel sorry for couples that brought their children, they should never see what was going on in the pools or the facility. It was totally disgusting. The first three days were a waste, you couldn't get in the pools for the obscenities taking place and his dirty. The food was below average, I could have settled for a freezer meal as to what they served. And men need to wear a shirt with at least short sleeves to dine, but on the other hand the young spring break girls could walk in nude. I even brought it to the attention of the hostess, he chuckled. Never ever choose Riu.

Spring Break at Riu

I enjoyed the all-inclusive options and the amenities. I could choose not to leave the resort for the duration of my trip if I pleased and be content with the options in my immediate vicinity. The only con was the $7 per person taxi cost to go to Downtown. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend this Hotel/resort to a friend.

Spring Break

The resort is beautiful and the staff was very nice.. The hotel grounds were very well maintained and the access to the beach was excellent. I didn't realize that it was spring break when I booked so a bunch of drunk college kids was at a all time high ! All inclusive is great but you get the bottom of the barrel when it comes to liquor, the food was okay , breakfast being the best in my opinion.. Chiliquiles were excellent! I recommend paying for airport transportation or else it will cost you a lot to get a cab from the hotel. Outside bars close at midnight which seems to be earlier than I would have thought. Overall We had a great time but probably will not stay there again.

There were a lot more spring breakers there than we expected, and many of them were extremely intoxicated. That could be partly the result of free hard alcohol and beer in the room as part of the all-inclusive! The resort itself is great and the rooms (at least in building 7 - which we highly recommend) are very nice and comfortable. Generally the staff were helpful and responsive, just not overly friendly. The resort's location was perfect for us - walkable to the marina, but far enough to avoid the crowds and noise. Unfortunately, cruise ships obscured our view and added to the crowds in town four or five of the days we were in Cabo. Overall, great resort, excellent experience.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Cabo's breath-stealing views from the patio of the resort that are picture-worthy.

Mojitos are legendary and de-lish. Order up as many as you want.

RiuFit is ready to buff you up. Weights. Cardio. Stretching. Catch it every morning & afternoon.

The impressive nightly entertainment. Especially fun for the little ones.

RiuLand, where the kiddos can play & craft the day away while you melt into stress extraction at the spa.

Dipping into the Jacuzzi for bubbly relaxation. (Plus always a fun mingling spot.)

 

What We'd Change

You can't swim in the ocean, but the views from the pools, the sunsets and sunrises and walks a long the beach are stunning.

 

Why You Should Go

It's close to the heart of Cabo San Lucas' shopping, nosh & drinking spots and the marina.

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

Cabo's famous "El Arco" is in the backdrop. Grab your camera and snap, snap away.

You can dance your heart out at Pacha nightclub. Put on your disco shoes and get to it.

Invigorating crowds keep the party going at the pool, around the resort and at night.
