Just returned from a week at the Sante Fe. The property is huge and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and works hard to create wonderful experiences for their guests. The food was good and they have a large variety. If you can't find something you like -- you may not like eating. :D The location is great for... More

Stayed from Feb 4th - Feb 11th. STAFF - Very hardworking staff. Everyone is friendly, and the entertainment staff make sure you have fun throughout the day with different activities. My only suggestion would be to change up the activities daily so it doesn't get repetitive every day. FOOD - Food variety was good, always had something to eat. Their... More

This was my first time at an all inclusive resort and I only knew what to expect from reading the reviews. Food: a very wide variety of different foods, 3 buffets, 1 sports bar with cheeseburgers/hot dogs/nachos/fruits/sandwiches/salad which is 24hrs, a fresh taco stand which is in the main entertainment area which operates from around 6pm to 9:30pm. The food... More

I stayed here not too long ago and found it great. I recently had an experience at another resort that made me realize how good this place is especially compared to others. The service is great and everyone is polite and friendly. The food is not that good but I haven't come across many places that have good food. The... More

The grounds are spotless and the workers are very polite and helpful. The pools are all beautiful ..the pool entertainment crew do so well at their job that often... More

We just returned from our family vacation, we booked as a group thru Sunwing and we were very happy with our choice of the Riu Santa Fe! We had rooms all beside each other in building 7. We had requested Ocean View and received it! There is really no Ocean front as the buildings mostly face sideways to the ocean!... More

Honestly, we were excited to go here because this was the biggest resort we had ever been too. The pool was amazing, the rooms were clean, but we were not overly impressed. We have stayed at smaller resorts, with better staff and food. I feel that for the size of hotel the food should have been amazing. The a la... More

Resort was beautiful, clean, and the staff was very friendly. Always something going on. Pedro the activities director was great. The food was excellent with many options. More food than one person could ever choose from or eat. Two beautiful pools and two bar infinity pools, plus private beach overlooking El Arco. Four restaurants and large buffet. Standard rooms were... More

I found this hotel just as good as The Palace next door! The bars were younger people and more lively! Food was just as good but less a LA carte! Staff very friendly! Beaches just as good and the value is excellent!
