The Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas truly is a paradise. Nestled on the emerald-green waters of the Sea of Cortez, the Riu Palace is a stunning example of Moorish-inspired architecture, with an open floor plan, towering spires and an impeccably manicured garden surrounding the grounds. Whatever activity you enjoy--whether it's diving, windsurfing, kayaking, volleyball, body boarding or just a few rounds of golf--the Riu Palace is an ideal place to stay in Los Cabos. This all-inclusive, 5 Star resort makes for the perfect relaxing getaway with two swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a solarium, a gym and the Renova Wellness Centre offering a full range of massages and body treatments. All resort facilities are open 24 hours. 

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.
Highlights

The four on-site restaurants at Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas include Krystal, a unique fusion restaurant, and Misaki, a Japanese eatery. With its ever-changing lineup of DJs, the Pacha nightclub is a hip spot to dance the night away to. For travelers with children, the Riu Palace has supervised pools and playgrounds just for kids. Leaving the resort, travelers may explore the nearby national conservation area of San José del Cabo, the marine park at Cabo Pulmo and the gorgeous beaches of Playa El Médano and Playa El Arco.

excellent hotel I have never been before.

We stayed in Riu Palace hotel for 4 days. However, we think it was too short to us. We plan go there again next year.

Excellent vacation for a group of friends

Resort is very nice and very clean. The daily stocked drinks in the fridge in the room was an added plus. There is more food to eat than you can imagine. Krystal was the group favorite place to eat. All of the staff are super friendly and ready to serve you. The pools are a nice place to relax and cool off. The alcohol in the drinks are watered down but still tasted great. For this reason I didn't see any sloppy drunk loud people at all, which is a good thing.

Good for large groups or families

We went to Riu for a bachelorette party and it worked out really well that it was an all-inclusive place so we didn't have to worry about food or drinks. It was also not far from the main city area where you could go out....a quick cab ride away. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We would recommend the buffet over some of the restaurants in the hotel. Plus don't sit outside ... we had lots of bugs near our table and eventually moved inside for dessert.

Great trip

The resort was awesome. It was very clean and everyone was very friendly! The only thing that could have been better was the food but at the same time when you are cooking for that many people it was to be expected! I ALWAYS found something to eat so by all means the food was sufficient and never went hungry. Would and will def go back!

Very satisfied

I stayed for nine days and I would have been ok with staying on the resort the whole time. The thing that made this vacation the best was the staff. They were all so kind, welcoming, friendly and most of all fun. There was so much variety of food choices and if you didn't want to make a reservation for dinner the buffet had all you need, with so many different choices of food to eat. The resort was huge with two big pools, one more for the partying crowd and one for the relaxing crowd. The pool crew had a lot of activities and tried to get everyone engaged, they were so fun and energetic everyday. The shows every night were great as well. I loved this resort and already recommended it to my friends

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Do not buy any activities at the airport they want to sell you a timeshare and make you go to a different hotel. Buy your activities from the hotel. I would recommend the zip lining it was the most amazing thing I've ever done.
