We booked at this resort for 7 days but only stayed two nights. We arrived after spring break. We have been to other riu locations but this location needs better guest management skills. This resort is a party resort. In our building several rooms had the doors open and the radio blasting both nights at 2 am. Drunken fights. Yelling....

This is the first time we stayed in an all inclusive. I really did not know what to expect. We were very pleased with the hotel. The service was great, very friendly staff. The food options were fantastic. The Exec Chef does a great job with his team. I met him many times in each dining room checking food quality....

My friend, Jane and I stayed at the Riu from 4/20/17-4/27/17. I will start this post off by saying that the food from the buffet was not very good. The food wasn't hot and lacked seasoning. We ate at the Chinese Restaurant on the premises and that was better than the buffet. Unfortunately the reservations for the other restaurants were...

Check in / out was fast. Room did have the musty smell, but I was expecting that from reading the reviews. Air conditioner worked great. The nights do get cool, so bring some warm clothes. We went May 6-9. Food was ok. They do have a guy making tacos out on main patio. Drinks were good. The employees work hard...

I would not recommend going to RIU Santa Fe for many reasons. First, the rooms are just 'okay', they are very outdated and there isn't even a nice comforter of blankets and the bedspread is old and itchy (unusable for a blanket). Second, the food is horrible - everything seems to be pre-made (from a package). Rubber like meat, gross...
