Lots of walking here and I mean lots. I stayed in the building closest to the water with the adult friendly pools and bars. Food was good but on the second day when I went to breakfast early in the morning and saw how the birds just sat on the bread bar eating bread, i realized that this is a... More

Hotel and room was clean, buffet food was good, restaurants where ok, except the Chinese. Beach in front of the hotel is nice but its hard to swim because of the waves. Take water taxi to the lover's beach - lots of fun.

The hotel is location is awesome. Food and Service was HORRIBLE. We will have to re visit Cabo and try a different resort because this one was not at all worth the trip. Thank goodness my husbands company paid for everything (contest).

Where do I start.. First impression of this hotel was alright.. The hotel was clean and pretty nice but it just went downhill from there. Our hotel room was okay, very average. The bed was very firm and the tv only had about 1 channel you could watch that was in English. The liquor dispenser in the room was a... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Riu Santa Fe in Cabo. It is the lower of the Riu hotels but we aren't picky people. The food was good, service good. Only bad thing was that the "night club" smelled bad. We enjoyed our bar in our room!

We have stayed at the riu chain before ( riu Jalisco ) they are an exceptional resort, total 5 star with 4 star... More

We stayed at the Riu Santa Fe - from Sept 12th-15th, where we were forced to become refugees for the next 4 days - after Hurricane Odile hit. No advance warning of what was going to hit Cabo. Our first warning was the tape on the windows of the shops in the lobby area. Not one staff member hinted at... More

Two sets of friends had previously stayed at the Riu Santa Fe Los Cabos - and we were delighted when we went! The hotel staff were friendly and quick to give you whatever you needed, the food was tasty and fresh! The hotel was clean, and always being cleaned during the day and night! Our room was amazing and overlooked... More
