About the Area: Medano Beach
The beloved beachfront of Cabo San Lucas, Medano is an energetic blend of spectacular beach, beautifully azure swimmable waters, activities and of course people. Hot beach clubs, beautiful resorts and fun restaurants line the beach. Hang out at the Mango Deck, Billygan's Island or The Office where you can enjoy happy hour with your toes in the sand. The gentle waters of the Bay are a beautiful backdrop for kayaking, jet skiing and parasailing. While soaking in the sun on the beach, you'll encounter a host of local hawkers selling anything from jewelry to chewing gum. If you're interested, bargaining is expected; if not, ignore them. If you're looking for a hot mix of action and natural beauty, Medano is the place to be. Depending on where you're staying on Medano Beach, you're either just a short cab ride or walk to downtown.

Reviews for Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas

The highlights of the trip were the weather, friendliness of staff, and meeting new friends from other states. Our agent Nik from CaboVillas.com always stayed in touch and made sure our resort needs and requirements were met. Would definitely recommend and use the resort and Nik from CaboVillas.com.

Nik Reyes followed up quickly and was very knowledgeable on our destination. We were nervous the resort would still be under construction from the hurricane and Nik assured us it was in perfect order and he was correct. The resort was amazing and one of the most cleanest places I've ever stayed. The staff was extremely friendly and more than accommodating. The view is breathtaking and the whale watching tour is a must; within minutes of being on the water we saw several humpback whales. I would recommend this resort over and over. Food and beverage was very good and options were limitless. Everything was fantastic! . I would use ESSV again. I actually forgot to bring my documents and called ESSV in a panic and my documents were emailed to me within minutes. Transportation and resort knew exactly who we were and were extremely friendly.
Review from Tina   | Macomb, MI

The resort was beautiful and spacious and the place was very clean and immaculate. Jesus and Paulie (poolside waiters) were very friendly and always there when you needed a cocktail. Felix (baggage) was very helpful and of course, how can we forget Enrique....what a wonderful host and always there to make sure that everything was at the best. The staff members at Riu Palace were amazing and very friendly.I feel that the choices at the restaurants on-site were very limited. The buffet was amazing, but very disappointed in the restaurants. I feel airport transportation should be included in the cost. Whale watching in Cabo was amazing.
