    Alfredo (white gloves) Jewelry

    Alfredo was super nice and a good business man. Not only did he give a good discount for my birthday but also polished the rest of my jewelry. He offered a large selection of rings to which I bought 2! Highly recommend if staying at the Riu.

    RIU PALACE is the BEST hotel 🏨 in Cabo and CAPE TRANSFERS the BEST 🚌 way to get there! thank you both!!

    We didn't know what to expect from our vacation in cabo due to the new normal but Riu Palace and its personal made us feel as if were visiting a real paradise after the stressful past months, all personal was well prepared and every single crook an cranny from the resort was ultra clean, riu palace is definitely a high end resort for the most demanding travelers that expect high value for their money without overpaying, as to how to get there we strongly recommend you a company called Cape Transfers, they were just as professional and ready for the new normal as riu palace's personal were, representatives at our arrival to cabo airport were polite and friendly and both drivers were punctual, they even went to pick us at Riu Palace Lobby at our departure 10 minutes before the time they said they would be, We booked a private suburban online on cape transfers website but they had plenty of options from choose from, from economy shared shuttle, private sedans and private suburbans up to vip limousines, so no matter your budget they definitely have something for you. If what you are looking for is a perfect getaway during this traumatic and stressful times you cannot go wrong with the Riu Palace for your Staying and Cape Transfers for your cabo airport transportation, thank you both for the memorable experience!!

    beautiful views

    It was a good stay. The food was ok. Rooms were good. Only about 20 or 25% occupied because of the corona virus. Lots of places in town not open yet. All in all it was a good stay. Didn't care for the beach here, very steep, very bad undertow. Staff was very friendly.

    What a Great Time!!

    My husband and I just got back from a week’s stay. We enjoyed it so much, we have already booked another trip for November. Even during the middle of a pandemic, this place was pure paradise!! The staff members are absolutely incredible, and are working their tails off to make sure everyone is having a great time. My absolute favorite food was the tacos at the evening buffet. I had both steak and chicken tacos. We went to The Office bar and grill, and I thought the tacos at the hotel were way better!!! A special thank you to Laura, Max, and Ricardo from the entertainment staff!! They made our trip so much fun!! Thank you to Alex and Rodrigo for keeping the drinks flowing at the pool. And a huge thank you to Margarita and the entire staff at the evening shows. They made the nights a blast!! I can’t wait to be back in a few months..
