    Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas

    We loved everything about this resort. The resort was clean. The employees are all friendly. Food was good. The pools are clean, cool, and beautiful! It is about a 5 minute taxi ride to the marina. We couldn't have asked for a better trip and will be back to this resort in the future!

    Not great first impression!

    Arrived tonight having booked our own transfer from the airport as the hotel complimentary service was nigh on impossible to do as coming on an internal flight. Check in was difficult as we had two rooms in the party (surely not the first time this has happened but it felt difficult) and on arrival to our “upgraded” room we actually had one king bed not the two queens we had requested. Not great with 3 adults in the room! The sofa bed was disgusting, mattress stained and ripped and no additional bedding. Tried the app but after an hours wait for a reply ended up calling reception for house keeping to bring the additional bedding required. They agreed the mattress was disgusting and also took photos before calling reception for another room. I was told in no uncertain terms by reception that we had been upgraded and no other room was available tonight but after a discussion with her supervisor I was told they would gladly move us to another room with 2 queens AS WE HAD BOOKED tomorrow if they had availability! As a good will gesture they would keep the upgraded status from partial sea view to full sea view which seems to mean we get to listen to the entertainment till 2300 (at time of writing) instead of the peace and quiet we had hoped for. On a positive note the food n the fusion restaurant tonight was delicious so hopefully it can be rectified tomorrow after 11am when I am allowed to ask for the actual room I booked again….
