Just came back from 4 days at Riu Santa Fe. For the price you pay, it's a fantastic value. Resort grounds are huge and kept beautifully by their staff. I enjoyed the large grounds as walking around after eating feels great. Some may say the hotel rooms are dats, but they have a nice Spanish aura to them. Bathrooms are... More

The resort itself was beautiful, very big and had a wonderful view of the arch. The ocean was not swimmable and had a very dangerous undertow. We witnessed many people be taken down by the waves and struggle to get back to the shore, very scary! The vendors on the beach weren't overly pushy but were always trying to sell... More

The pros: - beautiful manicured grounds and beautiful view of the beach/arch - rooms cleaning perfect - rooms are large and double sinks, tabs - - rooms include bar with fully stock fridge every day, water, Pepsi, Sprite...

This is our first stay at RUI Santa FE. It had good drinks at the bar, but the foods were just average. There was no Wi Fi in the room except in the hotel lobby. We rented a car with Dollar-rent-a-car for a week. I was too much hassle, we would not recommend renting a car in Mexico; the road... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 9th anniversary at the Riu Sante Fe in Cabo and it was awesome. The resort was full of life and some awesome people from Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle, San Diego and of course Atlanta. The property is beautiful and well kept. They had 3 pool bars which is always a great location to... More

A great introduction to Cabo. We have never travelled to Mexico so this was a great option. Hotel is huge so it will help if you know what you want to do. Building 7 is closest to beach, has large pool and 2 swim up bars. It also has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and snacks. Our room smelled... More

My husband and I just got back from our 2nd stay at the Riu Santa Fe. We had a great time! Cabo is super fun and I would definitely recommend it. The resort is definitely adequate. Clean and has all the amenities. A few pools that range from quiet book reading to lots of kids and activities to pretty much... More

Perfect location with views of the famous Arches from beach, pool and some buildings. Very clean, spacious room, huge bathroom and hall area. Alcohol dispensers in the room PLUS soft drinks restocked daily in mini-fridge. Well maintained grounds and a lot of space for guests to roam through. It's a huge resort, but doesn't feel congested. Staff very friendly and... More

Don't miss the afternoon taco bar. Food is average overall. Good but no amazing. Drinks are OK, but excellent if you request premiums. Excellent service. Rooms are nice, beds tend to the hard side. Definitely will return.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Riu Santa Fe from August 19th - August 22nd. The hotel lobby, rooms, pools and other amenities were very clean, classy and top notch! The TV in the room is outdated, as it is a tube, but the clealiness and class of the room and everything else makes up for it. I'd "honestly" give... More
