    Hey guys,
    I just found my cd of pictures from our trip to the Riu Palace in January. I don't have any wedding info (we didn't even see a single wedding the entire week we were there!) but I do have some personal pictures & can give my honest opinion on the basics of the resort!
    I'll just post the pics & then if anyone has any questions, just feel free to ask! If I start typing my opinion of everything I think I'll just over-share & give too much info! :)
    We also did some shopping & went on a catamaran/snorkel trip so I can give my opinions on those too!

    2 pics of the view from our balcony. We were lucky enough to be on the side of the hotel with the "quiet pool" which came in handy the afternoon I had a migraine & needed to nap!

    I also have some nice pics of Lovers Beach if anyone is interested in seeing them!

            Alrighty.. you asked for more, so here they are! (excuse the bikini shot!) :)

            Mat & I at El Arco. We took a water taxi to Lovers Beach & the taxi guy brought us around El Arco & showed us the sea lions & explained everything about the rocks & stuff. He even took this pic for us! It was a really cool afternoon!

            Sun in my eyes walking around the resort. My makeshift dress I made out of my sarong was pretty comfy!

            Mat & I on the Pez Gato for the afternoon. Has a blast snorkelling, drinking & dancing to the YMCA! :)

            My absolute favourite picture of Mat. He'd kill me if he found out that I posted it! He doesn't like having his picture taken so I waited til he wasn't looking & I LOVE the end result! Looks like my knight in shining cowboy hat! lol

              Great pics! I stayed there three years ago and had a blast! I thought the hotel was beautiful and your pictures show it- thanks for reminding me of the fun I had

                Wow, the resort looks beautiful and so does Cabo. OK, that's next on my list of places I have to visit!
                Overall would you give the resort a thumbs up?

                  I honestly don't have a single complaint about the resort at all! (it's actually one of our top choices for wedding locations as of now!) I have recommended it to all my friends/family.
                  The staff was great, food was delicious, & nothing went wrong all week. At one point someone even stole my towel & I was afraid of how much they were going to charge me (somebody has told me it could be up to $50) & they just gave me a new towel free of charge after I told them what happened!
                  I really loved Cabo in general too! We walked downtown along the beach one day to go shopping. Walked to WalMart one day also. Went snorkelling on an afternoon boat cruise & that was awesome too!
                  Hm, that's all I can think of for now. Feel free to ask any specific questions!

                    Thanks for posting the pics ! They are absolutely incredible , and even though I am not getting married in Cabo . Its still nice to see another Riu Palace to get an over all 'feel ' .
                    I have been hearing more and more things re the Riu Palaces...all of which helps to calm this bride-to-be ...especially when dealing with a future mother-in-law and aunt-in law that are convincedif they attend a wedding in Mayan Riviera , no matter how nice the hotel, they are bound to be raped , murdered and robbed ...oh , I am NOT kidding , they are convinced of this !!

                    Thanks again .
