Came here a couple years ago with my wife. Decent stay, nice beachfront location, and close enough to town. Do not expect too much from service though; I paid a lot more for a nicer suite that was supposed to have beach views, but the suite we had was on ground floor, with totally obstructed view and not as advertised....

My husband and I travelled to the Riu Santa Fe with our 8mth old baby girl. Needless to say it I was nervous all around for the whole trip. First plane ride, first big trip away from home etc. I was very pleasantly surprised on all fronts and a lot was thanks to the Riu. Here is the break down... More

After several trips to this hotel over the years, I can say it never disappoints. In fact, they seemed to have stepped things up a notch. The food is better than ever, and facilities upgraded. You can count on quality and great service!

Took our son here for his 21st Birthday. Service was great, Food was about a 7.5 of ten. Alcohol was endless and cleanliness of rooms was good. Quiet during the week but as the weekend came so did the party crowds. One downside was the beach is not swimmer friendly.

Went with some girlfriends and we had a great time. Restaurants are nice. The pool on the left side towards the beach (and volleyball courts) seems to be more of the party crowd. Building 8 is by far the best for convenience. Little far from downtown but can get a taxi or shuttle there easily from hotel.

Overall I'm happy with our experience here for the price that we paid for it. We stayed for 4 nights, 5 days from Houston to Cabo was under $1,300. Food is ok, ocean view was beautiful, staff is friendly and helpful. The bath water did get hot to cold on several occasions and the construction next door did but a... More

Airport/Bus: Airport was quick and painless arriving in Mexico 9arriving from Toronto via Sunwing)-bus ride to the resort was a good 30 minutes for us.

Riu Santa Fe in CSL is a gorgeous resort! Beautifully landscaped, very clean and safe. The buildings and decor are south western style and very nice. There is a pool for the lively, party crowd as well as another one for those who want a more peaceful, relaxed experience. Both have swim up bars. The beach in front of the... More

I am writing this review while sitting on the bed at the Riu Sante Fe. Today is September 26, 2016. I have always loved vacationing at Riu's. I came to Cabo for my 50th birthday and we chose the Riu Sante Fe, because they have always been on top of things. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed in the mix... More

I personally would not recommend coming here when there are a ton of other places to go. The staff is not welcoming and overworked, which leads to attitudes and customer dissatisfaction. When I come to an all inclusive, regardless of the price, I expect to be welcomed warmly and with a smile. A group of girlfriends and I didn't even... More
