Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas All Inclusive
A+ for facility and staff, F- for food and drink.
This place was a bit of contradiction. A beautiful facility. Right on the beach overlooking the Sea of Cortez. The staff was incredibly attentive, constant upkeep of the facility and anything they could provide for you, they would do right away. We never had to wait for a drink and anything we needed they quickly tended to your needs. On the other hand, the food was an abomination. Just absolutely terrible. We tried 3-4 of the restaurants from the cheaper buffets to the "higher end" full service restaurants and pretty much everything was terrible. If you are a wine drinker, forget it. This wine was not just bad, it was undrinkable (and I'm not a wine snob). How do you cook a steak medium rare and it still be dry as particle board? Why does all the fish smell "off"? How can you make a lobster risotto and you cant tell the lobster from the rice? We were able to salvage a decent breakfast because it's hard to screw that up (but scrambled eggs with sliced hot dogs?). I felt bad for the cooks because I feel like if given decent ingredients and training they might be able to produce something good but there is nothing you can do with prison quality ingredients. Same goes for the drinks. No decent wine, beer or liquor. Just stick with margaritas and cheap beer. The all inclusive "upcharge" to stay here was not even close to worth it. It's too bad because it is a beautiful place an the staff is top notch. But we won't return.
