My dearest gf and I booked a spur of the moment, all inclusive trip to Cabo. Afterward my fella read some pretty negative reviews of the Hotel Riu SF, so we were a bit apprehensive. However, that was all for naught. When we checked in we were able to change our room and had a view of the pool and... More

The resort is enormous. It's nicely appointed. The pools are all very nice. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Things I wish I knew before: Make dinner reservations for the restaurants as soon as you check in or they will be sold out. Or - slide the host some cash to find you a seat. The Asian restaurant is not good... More

The hotel is a great place to spend a vacation. Some of the highlights include the cleanliness, excellent food and the best part is the people! Made you feel comfortable all the time with their constant good service. The people in change of the entertainment keep you busy and having fun. Thank you all!

Three star hotel for Americas standards. Great view from only building seven (one hotel building out of many, it's a huge resort. Food is average, it's Mexico what do you expect. Even the hot dogs are not up to par, none of their food is good it's just average as in edible and good for the price. Drinks are the... More

I am rating Riu sante fe three stars, but I am not sure if it truly deserves it. I have waited over a month to review this resort because I have many mixed reactions. In the end, I would not stay here again. However, there are many pros- it is a close taxi ride to the pier, the staff were... More

This was my first time staying at a Riu Resort and I must say it was nice. The Riu Santa Fe is very family friendly it is definitely not a place for singles looking to mingle. Overall the food was decent but stay clear of the buffet at the Mission...the bees swarming the beverage machine is not attractive. The indoor... More
