“Had an excellent time at the RIU Palace in Cabo. My wife and I enjoyed everything from the hospitality to the food to the room. The lobby is open so even as you check in you can feel the breeze, and it’s nicely decorated. Our room had a fantastic view of the ocean and a decent size balcony to sit on and watch the waves. Every restaurant we ate at had great food, and the wait staff was very friendly. There are multiple pools so we never felt cramped when swimming. There was always a pool with plenty of room to hang out in. The only downside is that you cannot swim in the water because of the strong undertow. Love it and would stay here again.” – Matt B. 6/17
“This resort was one of my favorites that I had visited! Everything was close together, and everything had an ocean view. Our room was beautiful and clean. The food and drinks were perfect! The bartenders were super friendly. The fresh food by the pools everyday was a major plus. The pools were great and had the best views of the ocean. What a relaxing and fun place to stay!” – Rachel D. 7/17
