This hotel has the worst service. The waiters don't help you at all. The food it's ok but the cooks have a really bad attitude. The beach sucks, although it's clean and beautiful you can't swim, there are no complementary conditioner or cream and you have to rent the umbrellas at another place cause the hotel don't have it's own....

Visited Cabo July 2016. The shuttle from the airport to the RIU was a 45 minute ride. It was a nice ride uneventful. Once we reached the RIU our rooms were not ready so we grabbed a bite to eat. The check-in was easy. The walk to the room was a good distance but easy to find. We carried our... More

Cabo is a nice change of pace from the typical Caribbean or Mexican resorts. The views from the Riu Santa Fe are spectacular. Rooms are nice and spacious. Food was good in all the restaurants. Drinks were great and absolutely no issues with the service. The nightly entertainment was typical resort shows as expected but still worthwhile. The only complaint... More

This place was not bad. The property was really pretty and the rooms were kept clean. The staff was also very pleasant. But it did take about an hour to check in and get the key to our room, which was pretty annoying.There was a mixture of people here from families to singles who wanted to party. There was constant...
