Best Deal ever

The resort was a perfect choice. Absolutely recommend they have great staff and amosome food. They have lots of food to choose from and different activities in the resort. Very friendly environment will certainly go back in a couple years. The only thing I didn't like was that the ac in room was no good and the fan was to noisy so had no choice then to sleep with the fan on but other than that which doesn't matter bc your not there to sleep much.

Great Trip!

We decided to come to this resort for my birthday, and it was a great choice! I typically go to either Cabo or Cancun every year, and this hotel was definitely one of my favorites. In addition to the huge infinity pools, deliciousness of the specialty restaurants (included in the price), and serenity of the entire resort, the best part was definitely the service. Everyone was very nice and helpful, but there are 3 individuals who I'd like to mention who made my birthday trip extra special. The first was the concierge named Reyna. Not only did she make our check-in as smooth as possible, but she was kind enough to give us great advice on our stay, and she definitely went out of her way to make my birthday as special as possible. The next person who we encountered that was a complete delight was a waiter at the Asian Cuisine restaurant named Hilario. Best waiter at the entire resort! His jovial manner and swift skills were very appreciated. The last person who brought a smile to our faces every time we saw him was the restaurant manager named Daniel. He was so hospitable and caring. On my birthday, he went out of his way to find get me a cake and a bottle of champagne, even though he really didn't need to do it. Whenever the restaurants had a long wait-time, Daniel went out of his way to make room and accommodate as many people as he could. He really made us feel taken care of, and if you meet him at the restaurants, definitely give him a high five! The only thing I didn't like about this resort was that it doesn't have a swimmable beach near it. Besides that, everything was fantastic!

Very mediocore

Pros: Views from the pool. Access to the beach (cannot swim in this beach though) Rooms were clean, comfortable, and nice overall. Cons: While there were lots of dining choices, the food was awful. Like, the WORST food I have ever had at an all inclusive and in Mexico in general. It's really, really, bad. The only thing edible was the street taco guy in the plaza. He was great, but only around for a few hours a day. It felt like havasu and Orange County met the beach when it came to spring break type people. Very party oriented resort. Alcohol: the top shelf tequila is el jimador. What?!? And there's not even corona or Pacifico. You have one beer choice, and it's Dos Xx. Overall, I will not return.

The resort is "huge" very nicely maintained. The beach is nice to look at, not to walk on or swim. I knew about no swimming before we went.The food well, like everyone has commented it was "really bad" I have been to 4 other RIU's in several different countries this is absolutely the worst by far breakfast! had burnt/raw bacon over cooked eggs ect. How can you ruin breakfast? The birds are out of control in building 7's buffet area. They eat out of the food tray and your plate if your not looking. They really like the rice. If you like your morning coffee either bring your own pot or walk and I mean walk to get a cup. If you are looking for a cheap get away and can tolerate not eating much then definitely this is your place. Lots of walking, we walked at least 5 miles a day just on the resort. The weather was beautiful but unexpectedly chilly and very windy in the evenings to about 9am. We went June 3rd 2017.You I didn't find anything special about this resort.

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.
