I along with my wife brother and sister in law were there end of June beginning of July 2014. Resort was excellent, food was 1st class with plenty of dining options. Drinks were plentiful however choice of beer was limited to one brand. The staff were very friendly from the moment we arrived until the time we departed. If you... More

We arrived late (and during a Hurricane!) Staff were laying towels out as we got off the bus so we wouldn't slip. Quickly got our keys and rooms and we were sent out in the darkness to find our own rooms. We did have to change rooms, as we were assigned to a fourth floor walk up with one bed... More

Came during Christmas/New years time. I would not recommend staying here for two main reasons. Number one is you don't need an all inclusive in Cabo. The main Pier area is so well developed with hotels and restaurants that are reasonably priced even for the finer restaurants you don't need to pay for an all inclusive to enjoy dining in... More

This was our second visit to the Riu Santa Fe, the first time being about 5 years ago. Overall, this is a very nice resort hotel, with a lot of things to like. There are a lot of pluses, and a few minuses. For the reader's reference, we have stayed at quite a few all-inclusive resorts in various places in... More

I can only say great things, The food, rooms and staff were outstanding! Sonia the director was a true pro. She took care of every need and managed her hotel like it should be done everywhere. If you are thinking about Cabo please give the Riu a strong thought!!!!!
