Great facilities for young people. If you are not very ambulatory (can't walk great distances) forget this place. Very much walking, toilets are a long way from everything unless you know exactly what you are in for. Food in Baja Restraunt & Le Mision good, specialty restraunt Steak place sucks. Management evidently demand everything from workers but are lousy managers....

Ocean views are only partial and not worth paying the additional amount. They casually tell you that they don't make any difference in their advertisement between full and partial ocean view-upgrade price is the same for both! They do not provide any complimentary incidentals or for that matter even have much available on site to purchase. I asked for something...

This was my 3rd time at the Santa Fe. It isn't deluxe, but is clean and the views from the infinity pool is the best. We did have one problem, when we came back to our room at the end of the day, the door was closed, but not pulled tightly shut. So either the maid or the people that...

we had a great time, the resort was at 80% occupancy and therefore the service levels were up. Stay in building 7 which has oceanview, free wifi, is close to the food areas and pool. Our room was very clean and there was booze on tap in the room. Jonny and the crew at the swim upbar made our visit...

Compare it to a cruise ship on land. Activities, food, shows are similar to what you get on a cruise ship. Fairly close to downtown $ 15:00 cab . Sports bar open 24/7 for drinks or sandwich type food . Grounds well taken care of and pool bar with infinity pool makes for good drinks and sunsets. Waterfront section has...

Was trying to stay positive about our stay at Riu Santa Fe, but with time to reflect, my family's stay was pretty disappointing. While the facilities were nice, very nice pool, staff was helpful (for the most part), our main problem was the quality of the food was really poor, particularly for the dinner restaurants where a reservation is needed...

My husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary. We got an awesome deal on Travelocity at 50 percent off for booking three weeks in advance. The hotel itself was quite beautiful. There are many pools with swim-up bars and the all inclusive was best for their alcohol. It was awesome to have drinks whenever we wanted. We...
