    Quick family getaway

    Overall it was a great trip. The facility was well maintained and work fantastic for our family. There were a few inconveniences however. We were a party of 8 and could not sit together because the max allowed was 6... so for most meals we had to sit in 2 groups of 4. Normally service for dinners is excellent, but this time we had a few meals with less than par service. One evening I had to get up from the table 3 times to track down a server after waiting for a while. Also because of “Covid” there are no reservations, so if you are not in line for a restaurant 30 minutes before it opens don’t expect to eat there until after 8:30 pm. Other than those issues everything was great. The kids had a blast at the pool and beach. The photo team got some great shots of the family so let them shoot away! We always leave wishing we could spend more time there.

    Fabulous vacation

    Just got back from a 5 night stay at the RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas and loved almost everything about it! The location is perfect! The view was incredible and the weather spectacular. The staff was fantastic. Super attentive and constantly cleaning, asking if there is anything we need and super friendly. Never felt worried about COVID. Staff was always masked and cleaning. The food was ok. Loved the breakfast, especially the fresh omelette station and the crepe station! Best place for lunch was the grill by the pool. Fabulous burgers, fries and tacos!! Much better than the buffet. The absolute worst meal was the Steakhouse! HORRIBLE! I had the lobster (had to spit it out! Overcooked and basically mush...YUCK!) I then asked for the Surf and Turf (it was a small steak and some grilled shrimp. The shrimp were good and the steak was ok). The restaurant that redeemed all the food was the Japanese restaurant. Everything from the appetizers (I had the duck noodle soup- delicious and my husband had the Spring Rolls- he loved them) we both had the Beef Tepanyaki (very good)and for dessert had the Mango Mousse delicious. Since it was our 30th wedding anniversary we booked the professional photographer. Luli was amazing and these pictures are an absolute treasure!! Highly recommend the photography staff!
