My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in mid February. This was by far the best resort I have stayed in, and I have travelled alot! It has something for everyone. If you are in your late twenties or thirties and are looking for a place to have fun and meet people this is the place for you.... More

Honestly the best check in process I have ever seen. You get your bracelet while boarding the bus at the airport. When you arrive at the hotel you are handed an envelope with your... More

We stayed at this Riu 4 years ago and just returned from a week in Feb 2015- we could not even tell there had been a hurricane. The hotel continues to be a great place, wonderful staff .\, super value.

First off, I want to say we have to take some of the blame for booking this place because it was very affordable - but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" - and this rung very true with our experience at the Riu Sante Fe. I just got back on Monday, so this review is still... More

My review will be short and try to be accurate and fair. The room was nice in building 7, we upgraded to an in room Jacuzzi suite. The food was average, definitely nothing special. The beach is roaring the whole time and very coarse. The staff was pleasant, however with no room service even in the suites the resorts lacks... More

This hotel is was spotless. I can not fault the cleanliness. Everything was clean, clean clean. BUT: there are no coffee makers in the rooms which means a trip to the cafe after 7 am or a long walk from building 7 to the sports bar off the main lobby which was the only place to get coffee before 7....

Here is my categorized review: Resort Grounds: The resort was hit in the fall by the hurricane but the staff had it all cleaned up and the grounds were back to being speck and span. Keep... More

First of all there were NO Time Share people allowed on the Hotel grounds which started off the trip on the right foot. The hotel was beautiful and our rooms were much more than we expected them to be. The grounds were clean, the food was great and the pools were clean and heated. They brought snacks to the people...

We love Riu Santa Fe! The rooms and property are immaculate. There are plenty of options for lounging poolside, swim up bars, rowdy pools, or quiet pools. The food and drinks are great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful, though too rough to swim in. We have never been disappointed - or sick - when staying... More

I am never one to write a review online but thought this would be worth mentioning for future travelers to this hotel. In all of my travels I have never had anything stolen out of my room before so this was a first. Being that I was trusting, I left my purse zipped inside my luggage and my cash was... More
