This was my first trip to Cabo and I found some comfort in staying at a familiar chain. I have stayed at RIU resorts in Mexico and Jamaica and have found them to usually be in good locations, clean, with decent quality in food and entertainment. The view from the pool and beach is really what sold me so in... More

Great bang for the buck!! We were able to enjoy all four restaurants the first four nights. The Mexican and Italian were our two favorites. Food quality was well above average at the restaurants. The night buffet had very good food, pasta station was my favorite. Morning breakfast was tasty, much better if you went early. Lunch meal was usually... More

We went here for our anniversary to have a great time and just let loose. The stay was nice, food was decent given mostly buffet style. The restaurants were more than satisfactory. We stuck with the same waiter during buffet service, because he just learned what we liked the first day and remembered it. Staff was awesome as well. Always... More

Everything is offered at this resort! Bars, nightlife clubs, broadway based shows, shows for kids, buffets, speciality restaurants, spa, water sports, shopping, etc. The buffets are huge with so many options of yummy food and each table has a waiter that is always great and helpful. The hotel and hotel room were beautiful and each room has a liquor dispenser... More

We weren't expecting world class or having a butler following in or out... The pictures were all legit as... More

The RIU Sante Fe is an excellent choice for families looking for a great economical vacation. The main restaurant has great food for many different preferences and the four other restaurants that are reservation only are also good, but the main restaurant is great! The resort is very family friendly. Taxi’s from the resort to the marina were $14 for... More

This is my second visit to this hotel. Both trips were enjoyable and offered great value. We stayed 5 nights in a garden view room, on this trip. Room was spacious and had everything we needed. We like the location to downtown, which is a long but not exhausting walk on the beach (we cab back). The staff is always... More

We (2 moms, 1 -21 year old boy, and 2- 17 year old girls) visited the Riu Santa Fe from June 15 thru June 22. We enjoyed a great stay and loved the fact that the resort is very close to downtown Cabo. We took the public bus downtown for $1 one way and felt very safe. The bus is... More

I visited two weeks ago for my 26th birthday with two of my girlfriends. The trip overall was a wonderful experience; especially the excursions we purchased through expedia. I've traveled a lot and have visited different 4/5 star resorts all across Mexico so I had higher expectations for this hotel. This was my first time staying at a Riu chain... More
