Hotel details

The Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas is a stunning, all-inclusive, beachfront resort, reminiscent of a Moorish palace — lushly landscaped with swaying palm trees, manicured gardens, ornamental pools, and splashing fountains. Complementing the resort’s grandeur are picture-perfect views of the Bay of San Lucas and Lands End. Within the resort, numerous restaurants will satisfy every culinary desire, a full-service spa will relax and restore, a total of six pools for adults and children keeps everyone cool, daily activities are there for the active, and 24-hour snacks and beverages will keep you going. In addition, all rooms are lavish junior suites with balconies. Guests also have full exchange privileges at the neighboring Riu Santa Fe and adults (18 years of age and older) can go to Riu Palace Baja California for lunch, snacks, and buffet dinner.
