Just came back from a weeks stay here. First, let me say that the grounds of the hotel are nice, the rooms are decent, and the pools were very nice and big! Now, the food. The cross contamination was appalling, to say the least. No gloves worn by anyone, and I did mention quite a few times to workers about... More

Stayed for 2-weeks & had the best holiday ever!! Rooms were clean & comfy. Food was excellent in all the restaurants. Entertainment, pools & pool bars were great, & even the little shops had some great deals. The absolute best thing was the people: from the chambermaids to the waiters to the bartenders! Everyone was so friendly & helpful, just... More

This resort is very good . The Michael Jackson show & performer is very good . We were there with family freinds & their family. We enjoyed very much. The vegetarian dishes are very less but if you know and explain them they. Make it for you

If you want the sights and sounds of the ocean stay in building 7. Pool areas gets busy during the day, but pools close down around 6 pm, ok for kids, the water is too rough at the hotel for swimming, the pools are big enough though, nothing really special for the kids, more an adult place. Overall the food... More

Myself and a friend went March 27, 2015 for 5 days...the room was not fancy but nice and clean. We we ocean view but the resort sits way back and many palm trees so the view wasn't quite as great as I would have liked but I got great pictures of the arch and Lands End from the balcony. The...

Had an amazing time at the Riu Santa Fe. Buffets were decent, room was a little outdated (if your sharing a room take note that the two full beds are set up together) but the pools were awesome!!! Especially the main pool by the beach. The only other thing I'd say is ask where your room will be because some... More

This was the second time visiting the Riu Santa Fe. It is the best all inclusive I have ever stayed at. We did not need to leave the resort for any reason. The pools were beautiful. They have a quiet pool for relaxing in the peace and quiet and the negative edge pool at ocean front with activities going on... More

Staff was rude, rooms were grubby and the keys into the rooms were a pain in the rear for all 16 of us! Food was horrible compared to prior trips to Negril & Cancun. The pools were OK. Beach was OK. We were disappointed overall. There was no room service! The sports bar served "food" 24 hours? It was COLD... More

Los Cabos didn't lives up to its expectations. I think the carribean is much nicer especially you can swim in its ocean water. Nothing great about Riu Santa Fe except for its 2 big pools. It's all inclusive but food is worse than cruise ship food. The room smells, not very clean, and stains all over the bedsheets and terrible... More
