The Riu Santa Fe was all around amazing. The property grounds were so clean and emaculate at all times. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and prepared fresh. Breakfast offered mimosas as you walked into the buffet area. Nice touch! The only reason for a 4 star instead of a 5 is the dinner reservation... More

I was a little leary about coming after reading other reviews, but life is what you make it. Sure there were some rowdy college kids on spring break, but this place is big enough, where you can spread out and meet some nice people. There were a few swim-up bars and one huge infinity pool on the ocean. The food... More

The hotel can't really be blamed for all the obnoxious Spring Breakers, so I'm reviewing the hotel for what you'll probably experience during the other 11 1/2 months during the year. It's beautiful and huge! The rooms are a good size. The beds are comfortable, but the 2 queens are more like 2 full beds. The food is decent, not... More

My family and I have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean. Los Cabos has rejuvenated my perception of the ultimate vacation experience and I'm thankful we chose the Riu Sante Fe to tie it all together. From the moment we arrived, we had booze in hand (nothing new here, but a pivotal step... More

Just back from the Riu Santa Fe. The extent of Spring Break happening here was a real eye opener for my wife and I, aged early 50's, and most others we talked to. Somehow we all missed the memo on this one, including many quite a bit younger than us! That said, we still managed to have a great time,... More

LOCK UP ALL PERSONAL BELONGINGS!!! We had over $500 stolen right from our room. Whoever has access to the rooms lets themselves in and will steal anything that they can. My boyfriend also had his cell phone stolen as well as our friends walked into their room as people were raiding their bags!!!! I would not recommend this hotel to... More

My initial assessment was that the Riu Santa Fe was by far the largest resort complex that we have ever stayed. With more than 900+ rooms, this place was constantly buzzing with foreigners, especially Canadians! The upside, the resort had massive space and was set up to accommodate large live shows and many many thirsty patrons wanting to belly up... More

We went for a family wedding and the place was alright. The Hotel rooms were not suites as advertised, they were hotel rooms. The food was mediocre but the selection made up for the quality. We were there during Spring Break and the Spring Breakers had a great time. We went with our 2 toddlers and they had a good... More

This vacation was our sixth visit & still remarkable relaxing & beautiful. Sunwing Vacations are very much inclusive from booking , comfortable transfers, complimentary lobby wifi, free safe in rooms as well as every effort to upgrade you graciatously merely by asking at check-in. The resort impressed us on arrival & never let us down. A large selection of buffet... More
