The one star is for the fridge stocked with water, beer and sodas as well as bottles of liquor on tap in the room and the grounds staff. Every staff member out on the grounds (restaurants, bars, maids, servers) were awesome and great at customer service. The missing four stars are for front desk staff. Rude as can be with... More

Nice amenities, clean grounds, Gym and Jacuzzi are free and very catchy. I am checking out tomorrow and I can conclude that if you are looking for swimming at the beach; this is not a good and secured place to go (including all the hotels in the area) I suggest for a better beach you can try to walk 20...

I stayed at the Riu Sante Fe for my friend's birthday. The hotel was okay, but nothing to "scream about". The food was the worst thing about the trip unless you had reservations at the nicer restaurants. If you stay here, make reservations for the restaurants everyday, so you can have a decent meal. The air conditioning stopped working at... More

Got a great deal for 4 days and 3 nights at the Riu Santa Fe in Cabo San Lucas. Our Amstar rep, Monica, was very helpful in setting up our airport transportation and finding us good deals on activities. She set us up on a fun boat tour to Land's End and a snorkeling trip at Pelican Rock. The location... More

Cabo was awesome from the time we landed to the time we left. 45 min. bus ride to the resort with a welcome drink and very fast check-in with Sunwing. Building three top floor was very nice over looking the pool. Rooms were very clean with nice towel art and fridge stocked daily. With Sunwing they provided you with two... More

My wife and I stayed here last weekend for the purpose of checking it out to book a large group here in February. I will say, there was no specific terrible experience at the Riu, but the combination of below-our-expectation items made for an overall unpleasant vacation. The food is edible, although it is all of poor quality and prepared... More

This hotel was very fun, stay by the pool in Bldg 7, things are going on most of the day, the Hotel fun team also goes to the other pool so just ask where they will be. The balloon fight between pools was a blast my arm still hurts. Great Food and accommodations were good.

This was my 4th time visiting Cabo and it has been my least favorite place to stay. The bed was extremely hard in our room so it was uncomfortable to sleep on. The WiFi throughout the property was very spotty and I could only get it to work in one spot in our room (by the door). The buffets were... More

This property has a lot of reviews already. I just wanted to ad a couple of useful things that people will be wondering about. Transportation: You can get around by Collectivo buses or by taxi. Taxi drivers have a racket, when you can't negotiate prices with them. To catch a cab, you need to exit the main gate of the... More

It was our first time ever to Mexico and we ca't wait to come back! From the minute we walked through the doors until we walked out of the hotel we were impressed by the staff at the hotel. Everyone was so friendly! We stayed in building 7 which we would book again. It had elevators which some of the... More
