Spent a week in December relaxing. Both my boyfriend and I have nothing but great things to say about Riu Santa Fe. From the moment we landed SunWing took care of us from having the huge taxi that took all Santa Fe/Palace guests to the resort (happy to say that it is pre-paid with package.) Food was great because of... More

Riu Santa Fe The reason we chose this Riu hotel was that we stayed at a Riu Palace in Playacar near Playa del Carmen and we loved it. It was an intimate layout, felt authentic, walking distance to town, had great food, service, and was incredibly beautiful. The Riu Santa Fe is our 8th AI hotel and was a slightly... More

Spent a great week from Nov 13 - 20th. Traveled alone with no children.. Views were amazing, rooms quite comfortable, and cleaned daily. Fridges refilled daily with plenty of sodas and beer. Met some very amazing people as always.. guests and employees both. A great cleanup after the Hurricane, but there are still glaring issues. Ocean view rooms, on the... More

Resort was nice, food was good. Little bit different than some of the all inclusive a I have been at. It was a bit more "self serve" than others I have been at. Much of the resort is located behind the ocean view building and Riu Palace, so there is only one building out of 7 that over look the... More

Very large, spread-out hotel. Although our building was a bit of a hike to the main lobby area, it was right on the beach, overlooking the pools and the water. The room was spacious, very clean, and had a nice balcony. Employees are constantly cleaning, sweeping, etc. The hotel has several very good restaurants to choose from as well.

We had a good time at "Riu Santa Fe resort" just that the first pool by the beach is cold. We would go to the second pool which was warmer, but no activity or music going there like the first pool. The food was good. The only thing about it is that there are a lot of mosquitoes around it.... More

Myself and two friends just spent a week at this resort. Upon arrival, it looked beautiful. Everything looked clean and well kept despite the hurricane that just went through the area. We started hearing other guests saying that stuff was going missing from their rooms and that their friends and family were getting sick. We didnt think anything of it... More
