The hotel greets you with drinks at check in which I thought was nice. Its definitely not a 4 or 5 diamond hotel/resort. Our rooms were ok and our beds were pushed together to make a king. Very thin sheets and comforter on bed. This bed feels like your sleeping on bricks and the pillows are extremely flat and thin.... More

Many people on here complained about the food, but I thought the food was amazing. Different all the time. I honestly recommend the buffet better than reservations. The staff is all very nice and do what ever it takes to make you feel satisfied. Make sure to tip them them they really appreciate it. I didn't give it a 5... More

The Riu Santa Fe in Cabo San Lucas was an overall a great resort. The service was very good and the room we stayed in was amazing. Large bathroom, large bedroom and a beautiful balcony with a view. There is air conditioning in the room and a fridge stocked with bottled water, beer, club soda and more which is all... More

Our family has stayed at this resort 3 times in the last two years and have absolutely loved it each and every time. I dare you not to find something fantastic to eat at any of the buffet restaurants. And if you don't, which I would not believe there are 4 reservation restaurants to choose from. All of the staff...

We stayed here for 7 days and it was not that bad. My kids enjoyed the pool but not the beach because the waves were too strong. The service was either a hit or a miss. Check-in was fast and the bellboy was friendly. Our room was on the third floor and there were no elevators. I tried to reserve... More

This was our second trip to the Riu Santa Fe. The first time we went we had several problems which actually resulted in our returning this year for a free trip for 4 nights and 5 days. Truth be said - it wasn't worth it. While the grounds are beautiful and the room was clean (unlike last time) the drinks... More

The pools here are great but the drinks suck and the food is horrible. We spent most of the trip eating out. They have some really nice small Mexican restaurants around town for great Authentic Mexican food but if you want to skip the Mexican food they have plenty of American resturants just to name one Ruth Cris stake house.

We were travelling with a large group, so naturally we all wanted to be in the same area (there are 900 rooms). Despite contacting the hotel previously, they had no record that our rooms all wanted to be near each other. In addition, they didn't have any record that one of our group members had paid (even though she prepaid... More

Instead of writing a whole new review, I am copying the e-mail I sent to the Riu staff after our stay. Please really read through the revews on here before booking. Good Afternoon, I wanted to bring to your attention the dissatisfaction we had with our recent stay at Riu Santa Fe in Cabo. I have stayed over 20 nights... More
