Pristine and palatial, RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas All Inclusive attracts every category of traveler, from honeymooners to parents with children in tow. With 642 rooms and a sparkling, massive pool heightening the appeal, the hotel manages its size well with plenty of a la carte and buffet restaurants and a thick roster of leisure activities. Kids clubs for the under-12 set add to the allure.
Dining
The restaurant options are vast at RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas All Inclusive. In addition to 24-hour room service, patrons can visit the many buffets and a la carte eateries offering international dishes and on-the-spot cooking stations. Four restaurants -- Misaki, Grill and steakhouse, Mexican cuisine and Krystal Restaurant -- require reservations.
Rooms
RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas All Inclusive utilizes bold design elements -- thick columns and lovely arches, for example -- to stir drama in its 642 rooms. A tropical palette grounded in rich ambers, coppers and browns keep the rooms warm and inviting. Lavarino Cosso bath amenities, a minibar and a restockable liquor dispenser add to the comfort, while balconies beckon guests to take in the garden or ocean views. Suites pay extra attention to pampering thanks to a hydro-massage bath tub, shower cabin and bathroom.

Relaxing Getaway for two

This was our 6th time to the RIU Palace in Cabo, we came for rest and relaxation and that's what we got. We stayed in the deluxe suite with Jacuzzi on the upper balcony as we had twice before. We love having all the resort amenities, the shows, bars, restaurants, pool and beach, then we love the privacy of the upper balcony and Jacuzzi for private time. Relaxing in the Jacuzzi in the evening, listening to the waves roll in and watching all the water activity was exactly what we needed to turn off daily stress and worries and just enjoy spending time with each other. We've been married 27 years and realize how important time to connect with each other is - and we've found the RIU Palace in Cabo is our perfect place.

The seafood was excellent.

The rooms were alright. They were tired and could use an update. The seafood was excellent. Love the different kinds of fresh juice. Love the general buffet restaurant. Other restaurants that you have to make a reservations are mediocre.

Terrible 30th

My husband and I have stayed at 3 different RIU resorts now. Puerto Vallarta, Guanacaste in CR and Cabo palace. All 3 have progressively had issues but this was our 3rd and final straw. We arrived Thurs but could not get dinner reservations until Sunday which the other couple we were with were leaving Sunday. The other places we did try to get into kicked us out because he didn't have pants, which we were never told, it is freaking almost 100 degrees. Who brings pants? The other sushi place at 7:45 told us we could probably get in before 9. At 9 he said we were out of luck! He could have told us sooner as by this time we were starving! The buffet gives you diarrhea, so honestly you think you would gain weight from eating so much and drinking alcohol??? Nope, both my husband and I lost 5+ lbs because we were turned away for several dinners and/or had the poops. No we didn't drink the water. The management staff is a joke, besides Gabriel as he was the only reason we stayed the entire time. He needs a raise! Everyone else, was not friendly and could care less about us being upset. After several tears and yelling, we did get a bottle of liquor but that still does not make up for everything that happened. My husband and his friend's 30th bday was a bust because of the RIU palace. Side note: I called to request a king bed, nope got 2 doubles. Also asked on the phone if I could make dinner reservations ahead of time and was told no. When we arrived and I complained about the lack of availability, the lady told me I could have called... What?!?? After staying at 3 different RIUs, I will NEVER return. We spent way too much to have a terrible time!

Breathtaking Lobby

RIU Palace does not disappoint. I've been there twice, both for bachelorette parties and it has been consistently great. By far, the best choice for guests who want to be in less partying atmosphere, as compared to the RIU Santa Fe next door. The massages were wonderful, but I would not do the outdoor beachfront one again as the partygoers at RIU Santa Fe can be heard from where I was. The food is great as the menu changes every day - we ate at the buffet every day. Prices are reasonable and location to the town is a short cab ride away.

Cabo Trip

Stayed November 2014, short three months after the hurricane. Service staff very friendly. Management staff tried but really succeeded to be as friendly as the hotel service staff. Resort completely renovated but with some short cut corners cut in order to reopen. Pool area beautiful but beach very rocky still as a result of the storm. Yes, we would stay again...

Great fun in the sun

Overall experience was great. Not having great wifi made connecting to home difficult. Food was great! Most of the staff were great as well. Just a couple not as happy as most to be there. Great value and lots of fun. Would definitely go back.
