Peaceful atmosphere distinguishes this from other Cabo properties
Popular amenities can get crowded
Occupying real estate on Cabo San Lucas' scenic coastal stretch, the all-inclusive Hotel Riu Palace Cabos San Lucas offers guests upscale amenities and beautiful surroundings. Facing the Sea of Cortez, accommodations are decorated in auburn hues with wooden accents. Each room also features a stocked minibar and private balcony or terrace; past guests highly recommend reserving a room on a higher floor for the best ocean views. For sun-seekers, two spacious pools offer tranquil places to enjoy afternoon siestas. And out of the sunlight, you'll have access to this RIU property's salon and spa. As far as dining goes, you can linger by the pool or sip a refreshing cocktail at one of two swim-up bars or the poolside dining area. You can also dine a la carte at one of five restaurants. After you've recharged your batteries, you can indulge in a little more activity with a horseback ride, sailing or a round of tennis.
