We were here for a family wedding and also our honeymoon. Do not expect anything special for your honeymoon - they said we would get a free room upgrade. Never happened. The food was good. Asian restaurant and buffet were better than expected. Room was small. Bed was hard. Bathroom was nothing special. Usually there is nice tile work or... More

The hotel is very good, the room was really nice and with very good size, we were on the 3rd floor in building 1 so we had a very nice view of the gardens. What I didn't like if that there are very few umbrellas on the beach (only 4) and also on the pool, I can't always be on... More

We came to Riu Santa Fe for our honeymoon on the advice of a few other people who told us it was a good hotel. I suppose my standards have been spoiled by the Mayan Riviera. I found the lobby to be dirty (the lamp shades were disgusting) but the room was very clean. The room had a tub and... More

Room- Clean, great shower, well stocked, bar in the room but it was all Tequila no other variety, yes one says Vodka but it is not Vodka it is Tequila. They all had the same smell and same taste. No coffee machine in your room, would be nice if they would put them in the rooms. Beds are not too... More

Dates: Friday April 17, 2015 - Monday April 20, 2015. My groomsmen and I stayed here at this resort for a couple of reasons. First, it cost us less to fly from Texas to San Lucas Cabo than it does to fly to Cancun. Second, the all inclusive resort was budget friendly. Lastly, due to the nature of our visit,... More

We went in April. The nights were cool, the day's fabulous! The only ocean views are in building 7 - this area has 3 infinity pools, 2 of those have swim up bars. Fun, rowdy and the best views of the ocean. Also kinda noisy ( even tho the pools close at 6 pm) the other buildings surround the tother... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the better than expected options for food and drink. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the service exceeded our expectations. Just be aware that there are no elevators except in section 7, so if they offer you a 2nd or 3rd floor room be ready for the stair climb. The main pool is also... More
