I first want to say that I have stayed at numerous Riu resorts because it is usually excellent service; I've stayed at Riu Palace Punta Cana (x2), Riu OchoRios, Riu Caribe Cancun - all amazing resorts; I never wrote a review on them but I feel that I need to write one about Riu Sante Fe because it was disappointing...

Just returning from a wonderful family vacation here with a group ranging in age from young children to seniors- all loved the resort. We booked Building 7 as recommended on Trip Advisor for those wanting to be close to the beach and don't mind the somewhat noisier pools during the day. Finding great lounge chairs was never a problem although... More

Bae & I went for our anniversary, they treated us nicely. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink which was nice. The rooms are ok the one we got was kinda away from everything a little too quiet but at least it was comfy. The food there is very repetitive but good, having to make reservations for... More

We decided on a whim to book a trip to Cabo - less than 2 weeks before we left. We found a good package deal, did some quick Trip Advisor research and booked the trip in about 15 minutes. Overall, especially given how little research we did ahead of time, we were happy with the Riu Santa Fe. It is... More

Booked ocean view room and king size bed and had neither. Day 3 booked wifi And it worked for a few hours and then had to call and wait half a day to get it back. Day 4 no hot water in the morning and they figured early afternoon. By 4 it was back. Disappointed because reviews claimed 4 1/2... More

Beautiful resort. Food gorgeous. Everything sparkled with cleanliness. Staff amazing. No swimming in ocean as rip tides are ever present, noisy all night till 3-4 am as there is no sound proofing from the hallways, a party hotel. A lot of walking required between buildings, and lots of stairs, not great for someone who has knee/leg issues and very slippery... More

If you like going to all inclusive s to get really loaded and pick up people and so on it might be the place for you. For us it was too loud and way too many drunk people, even saw vomiting and couple in very heated argument. The night entertainment is good quality, the buffet food is fair enough but... More

My wife and I just returned from a week stay. Jan 17 thru 24 2015. This is a huge resort, most of which is behind the riu palace. We paid $1100 each for a week so you can't complain about price. Just know what you are getting. Rock hard beds, plenty of bland food, no elevators so if you are... More

Just returned from the Riu Santa Fe (Jan 15-22, 2015). Wow. This has been the most fun trip I have ever had (have travelled to Cancun, Mayan, Cuba, Dominican). Cabo has been the best party atmosphere. I met so many wonderful and friendly people. The staff and service were great. The view is absolutely beautiful. Can often see whales swimming... More
