Decided to spend my first vacation in Cabo at the RIU Santa Fe and Im glad I did. Upon arriving at the hotel I was given my room key and allowed to check in regardless of the fact that I was two hours early. This is just one example of the friendly and polite staff that go out of their... More

My husband and I stayed at Riu Santa Fe in April 2015 4 days/3nights. We had a WONDERFUL time!!!! The service was top notch!!! The hotel was beautiful!!! The only downfalls to the stay were the beach hustlers and the food. The dinner selection was very average to say the least. The breakfast and lunch were great!! If you don't... More

Stayed in building 1. It is the furthest from the beach, but honestly you can't get in anyway...especially if you have small children. The waves are brutal and will sweep you out without a moments notice. I was in ankle deep water and the next think I knew I was being dragged out after getting hit with a huge wave.... More

Great check in able relax in lobby with drinks, instead of standing in line. We were booked for a room on the 4th floor, they did not tell us there was not an elevator in building. All inclusive is not all inclusive. NO ROOM SERVICE. Dining was disgusting!!!! They have four restaurants, but have to make reservations. Checked in on... More

It's nice on the outside. Rooms aren't bad except for the concrete slab they called a "bed". EXTREMELY disappointed in their restaurant policy...you have to make reservations TWO days in advance, so while we were staying there 4 days, we could only eat at 2 of their "specialty" restaurants...leaving all other meals at the buffet. And they serve the SAME... More

Let me start out by saying this is my second visit to the Riu Santa Fe but it will be my last. The service crew, bartenders, entertainment staff - all friendly and wonderful. The location is great but the front desk manager should be fired. First of all, please specify at check in that only two devices total are allowed... More

This was booked last minute as a special birthday gift. We've been to many places in Mexico, and have stayed at some Riu Resorts. We were so pleased with this area and this resort. One pool in particular was the party, party area..really the 20-30 something's out of control, but don't go there and you won't see the shenanigans. We... More
