Would have loved to give this Resort an Excellent Review and probably would have if not for a few negative aspects. Pros: --Staff was always friendly and helpful. --Pools, Rooms and Grounds were always well maintained and clean. --Four Specialty restaurants. Mexican, Italian, Asian and Steakhouse. (I would personally recommend the Italian and the Steakhouse) --Fairly good variety in the... More

My family visited the Riu Santa Fe in Aug, 2014. Here is what you need to know about this hotel. The Riu Santa Fe and the Riu Palace are right next to each other. The Riu Santa Fe is definitely the older of the two hotels and it definitely felt that way. There are two large pools, one facing the... More

Beautiful resort, exceptional customer service, and a very welcoming place. Personal mini-bar in your room, that gets restocked every 2 day, 5 pools, some with swim-up bars, lots of day and night entertainment. Food around the clock, some restaurants require reservations. Beach volleyball, beach venders, a local and city bus that charge $1 to go downtown. You get a chance... More

We had a fantastic time at this hotel. Great service, good food, clean accommondations. Nice selection of restaurants and entertainment in the evening. The only concerning experience was that I had a new swimsuit and coverup taken from the room and also the keys that were locked in the safe to my car in Seattle at the airport were stolen.... More

I've been to several Riu hotels and I've never been disappointed. There are a lot of bad reviews regarding the beds, but this is the first Riu that I had an actual King size bed instead of two twins together. Not the cushiest in the world, but I've had worse. The food was pretty good. We didn't make reservations for... More

I recently got married in Cabo at the Riu Santa Fe Resort. I chose this resort because I had been there before and I loved the premises and the overall experience with the room, staff and customer service. The resort is by far a great resort, and I would recommend it to anyone! The Wedding on the other hand is... More

Just came back from a weeks stay here. First, let me say that the grounds of the hotel are nice, the rooms are decent, and the pools were very nice and big! Now, the food. The cross contamination was appalling, to say the least. No gloves worn by anyone, and I did mention quite a few times to workers about... More

Stayed for 2-weeks & had the best holiday ever!! Rooms were clean & comfy. Food was excellent in all the restaurants. Entertainment, pools & pool bars were great, & even the little shops had some great deals. The absolute best thing was the people: from the chambermaids to the waiters to the bartenders! Everyone was so friendly & helpful, just... More

This resort is very good . The Michael Jackson show & performer is very good . We were there with family freinds & their family. We enjoyed very much. The vegetarian dishes are very less but if you know and explain them they. Make it for you

If you want the sights and sounds of the ocean stay in building 7. Pool areas gets busy during the day, but pools close down around 6 pm, ok for kids, the water is too rough at the hotel for swimming, the pools are big enough though, nothing really special for the kids, more an adult place. Overall the food... More
