My husband and I stayed April 2 - 6. Let me preface by saying we were looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway. As beautiful as this resort was, it wasn't very peaceful and relaxing. There were some spring breakers and party people. The resort is huge which brings more people and more noise. We wanted something smaller and quieter. Otherwise,... More

Arrived April 9 for a 3 night stay at Riu Santa Fe. First time at this property, but have stayed at 3 other Riu locations (Riu Cancun, Riu Palace Mexico in Playa del Carmen, Palace Macao in DR) so I know what to expect. Check-in - No wait to check-in when we arrived around 3:00 to a Margarita. The clerk... More

Went to RIU Sante Fe for Spring Break, April 5, 2014 - April 12, 2014. Although the resort it self was nice and the restaurant and pool staff very nice there is a BIG PROBLEM with theft. My daughter shared a room with 3 other girls. While getting ready for dinner she was using her phone to listen to music.... More

This was our first experience with a Riu property and we loved it. Cleanliness is a priority. While eating at the steak house we saw staff wiping down beach chairs at the end of the day. The beach was spectacular affording long walks in the sand with wonderful scenery. Grilled fish at lunch was cooked perfectly and dinner at the... More

We are currently staying at this hotel, and entire hotel has been without AC for the last 5 days, and no one at the property can give you an answer on when it will be fixed. We are told to contact Customer Service at Riu via fax or email, as the Front Desk can't do anything for us. You contact... More

Overall I think one can do better than RIU Santa Fe...the rooms we're ok for a 4 star, the food was average at best although plenty of choice at the buffet. My experience in the restaurants was negative for a couple of reasons...I ordered salmon at the Italian restaurant for example and received a hunk of salmon...and nothing else lol... More

The air conditioner didn't work my entire stay April 14 through the 17. Long hot nights of tossing and turning on a hard mattress. The buffet food was decent and the grounds were clean. Would I stay here again ehhh, probably not but it was ok for the price.

Well, if you're looking for a hotel with NO AIR-CONDITIONING all week, and the run around all week when asked about the status of "repair", then this is the place for you!. Let's be honest, no one is in their room during the day, you should be outside by the pool enjoying yourself! But, after a long hot day in... More
