I think I would give this place 3 1/2 stars. I believe this might be the largest resort I have ever stayed at. My expectations were low. This is a party hotel for groups of young people, or groups of any age. This is not 5 star luxury, did you see the room rate you paid?! They do a good... More

Just visited this hotel (June 7th, 2014) and had a great time. The place is beautiful, the food is very good, there are 6 massive pools and everything it is very clean. Personnel is very nice and work very hard. The infinity pool is where all the "party" people hang out. If you have a family that's not the pool... More

My family of 14 recently stayed at the Riu Santa Fee in Cabo on 6/24/14-7/4/2014 I read the reviews before went on the hotel to see what others thought before I went and some comments were spot on. When first arriving at the resort it was nice and inviting the actual hotel was nice and kept well and the people... More

I am a travel agent who is very particular about where i stay with my family. I have to say the Riu was a great choice. The facilities all cater to everyone being outdoors and around the central plaza. My family that went was a trio of 19 year olds, a 13 year old a 9 year old and myself.... More

Did not expect to have such a great time, but once we got there we were amazed. The service was excellent. Food was good. It's a very clean hotel. Gets five stars from me. Planning to go back next year.

Where do I start? First upon arriving we left our bags with the bell boy who said he would bring them to our room. We went to our first room with NO AC and waited there for half hour waiting for our bags that never came. We then went back down to the front desk to see what the problem... More

I came here with 2 of my grandchildren to celebrate their high school graduation; both are 18. The hotel was even more beautiful in person than the pictures, we had an ocean view suite which was roomy and had a view of Land's End. We found plenty of activities that we could enjoy together, as well as things we could... More

I went to Cabo in may and had a wonderful experience. The riu santa fe is a really beautiful resort. I do have a couple tips for future travelers. The food is about quantity more than quality. For dinner at one of the 4 restuarants you do have to make reservations so get up at 730am your first morning there... More

We are currently at the Riu and were enjoying it until last night. We had our second encounter with the front desk night staff and it was not very good. We went to put our kids to bed only to discover the sheets were badly stained! Long story short, we called the front desk 3 times at 25 to 30... More

My wife's family chose Riu Santa Fe for a family reunion. The resort itself is very pretty, well manicured and located with a prime view of the Cabo Arch. The pools and swim-up bars are nice, and there are interesting poolside activities such as tequila water voleyball and water aerobics. We also enjoyed the evening entertainment, which for us was...
