My husband and I had the best week at Riu Sante Fe. We upgraded to a suite which was absolutely beautiful. Our view from the balcony was amazing. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The resort was very clean. There are multiple pools which all had different atmospheres! It was nice having the choice of a relaxation day or a party day! The resort is literally right on the beach. It's a short cab or water taxi ride to town/marina. The food was your typical buffet. We chose to go out to eat a couple of times but wasn't necessary.

We stayed here the first week of March. Had a great view in bldg 7, however very musty smell so we had to keep fan on and door open whenever in the room. Mattress terribly uncomfortable and plastic coated. We had a suite with hot tub, max water temp only got to lukewarm at best- so fairly useless. Very clean grounds, beautiful that way. Staff very friendly and helpful. Noisy due to a lot of partying, seems to be the spring break crew and heavy drinking all times of day, especially in the "party pool". Inappropriate for kids in this area. Great beach, great bodysurfing. Food just okay, sit down meals in specialty restaurants were a waste of time- glorified "airplane food". Buffet better- got old after a while. Riu Palace next door is definitely more upscale and suited to the non "see how obnoxiously drunk I can get" crowd.

We travel several times a year and are not hard to please..definitely not in the sandals set so we are fairly easy to appease and are just giving an honest review. Hotel was clean and nicely manicured, food was ok. Breakfast and dinner fairly good, but lunch was very repetitive, same small selection everyday. Dining staff was friendly and did an exemplary job. Marco P. was the highlight of that experience. Front desk staff were not nearly as friendly. Rooms smaller but nice, views are terrible unless your in bldg 7. Ours was a "garden view" which meant facing a construction sight and the staff entrances, noisy at best and not a plant in sight. No elevator for any bldgs except 7, so 6 flights is bit much. Spring break did not start mid March as they indicate , it started 2 was ago and the kids were out of control, with no security to be seen. Screaming , drunk and loud every night and into wee hours of morning. The kids took over the ocean view pool and beach so we were stuck interior poolside everyday!!! So no ocean view from room or otherwise. Bringing your walking shoes, the resort is laid out poorly and you have a long walk no matter where you go, the beach being the furthest walk. Entertainment was good and drinks were good. Bring a coffe pot, there are none to be found for your room. There were more issues but no room on here to list them. Not terrible but not good enough that we will ever return. Very Cool in am and eve so bring a jacket! Close to Cabo which was nice.

This hotel used to be good. We have been going for about 5 years now. This last trip was not good. Was like we were at spring break in San Diego! All young kids drunk and out of controll. No security and yelling and partying all night! We got no sleep and the drinks smelled like they just mixed all the boose together. Unfortunatly the staff that serves the food are excellent! having to deal with all the rude people...don't know how they do it.

The hotel is decent if you are just staying within the compound. Food is mediocre at best. Be ready to be swarmed by locals selling stuff on the beach. Way to far from downtown and the marina for me. Cab ride was 14 bucks each way. Mosquitoes in my room at night... So overall a so so place, but just not for me.

The hotel staff were very friendly. The buffet was good. It had a variety of food and it was fresh food all day long. The drinks were not the best quality of alcohol but you definitely could get a buzz. The bed was a little bit too hard to sleep on but nothing that a long day at the beach or pool would get you tired enough to just pass out. I would totally spend my vacations there again. Facilities were nice. The views were outstanding and the staff were fun and friendly. A great vacation for the money!

checkin was not the smoothest thing i have ever done. The resturants needed reservations and you have to stand in line to get them, and you can only do 2 days at a time. That was a big pain. No one comes around the pools to get orders at all, you have to go get your drinks, not many bathrooms around either. Overall it is a good place for the money. Depends on what you expect i guess. Lots of loud spring breakers when we were there.

The Riu Santa Fe was a nice resort. It was very big! Lots of people..lots of walking..(but good for us) beautiful views. Unable to swim in the ocean though,it was very rough and the undertow was bad..there's only one bathroom for 3 pools..so there was a lot of waiting at times..very friendly staff, always cleaning and working very hard! The food was just ok..pretty much the same things every day..close to town so you can take the city bus for one dollar otherwise a taxi is 14 dollars each way..I recommend Pochos downtown by the Marina to eat!! Excellent food there!! We took a sunset cruise which was beautiful and happened to see whales on the tour which was amazing! The Michael Jackson show is also s must see!!

The Riu Santa Fe turned out to be a pleasant surprise considering the hurricane that hit there in the Fall. Other than some newly planted trees and shrubs, we would never have known that the hurricane went through there. The grounds and the rooms were immaculate. We stayed on the 2nd floor of Building 7 and were very, very pleased with the view and the accommodations. We didn't find that there was an unusual level of noise from the young people staying there, so the reviews complaining about the party pool at Building 7 must have been exaggerating. There was a party atmosphere at one of the swim up bar pools, but that was during the day and there were other pools you could go to that were just as nice and they were more quiet. The staff could not have been more pleasant. There were two different buffets and we took turns going to them for breakfast and lunch. The food was very good and they did have a variety every day. We also went to three of the specialty restaurants, Asian, Steakhouse and Italian & were very pleased with the food served there as well. A couple of the shows were pretty good, but the others were not so good. The group of young people who performed were very enthusiastic and did their best.

The many pool options was nice. We arrived on Wednesday and left Sunday. The weekday crowd was a bunch of party people meaning trashed by 5pm. The crowd definitely got better closer to the weekend. Ask to not be on a first floor near stairs because you will be woken up every night by the drunk loud kids. Breakfast was great! Mexican restaurant was great!

Resort is very accomadating. Depending on room/unit it is a long walk to beach area. Food was a 3.5 out of 5 rating. Staff was very courteous. Lots of pool activities which caters to young people. The pool areas needed more loungers/chairs to accomadate the resort size. You had to reserve your pool loungers/chairs early in the morning to have a place to set. The RIU Palace next door would be more accomadting to people looking for a quieter environment. Airport is 40 minutes from resort. Overall a great experience we will return someday but maybe consider the Palce depending on additional cost.

The dinner reservation system could definitely use improvement. Basically you can't get a reservations at one of the dinner places for the first two nights unless you check in the morning. We stayed for 4 nights and were only able to get dinner one of the nights. Other than the food the place is very nice and we had a good time.

We were pleased with just about everything about the RIU Santa Fe....It was wonderful! Perfect location, comfortable and beautiful accommodations, hardworking staff always seeking to help/take care of you, immaculate grounds, good food and a lot of options, drinks are strong and plentiful. Not too far from downtown Cabo but yet you feel like you are away from the downtown hustle for relaxing. Be sure to get your pool towels early (night before, 6 pm) as people save their lounge chairs as early as midnight the night before. If you want a seat be sure to go a minimum of before 7 am or you may not get a spot! Food options were not all gourmet but they were very tasty and there were plenty of options for every meal, we were never hungry! Plus you can have snacks in between meals that were like light meals and again, lots to choose from. Pools were wonderful and we greatly enjoyed lounging and drinking poolside to unwind. Would definitely recommend this resort to friends and come back again :)

I have to admit that i was hesitant after reading all the negative reviews. But you know what?I've come to realize that it was mainly people with high standards. Don't get me wrong, i have high standards but realized that this resort was perfect for the price i paid. Staff was fantastic. Everyone seemed to be happy and willing to help. All you can drink alcohol NOT watered down was good. Try the superman, crazy horse, and mojito! My favorites. I have to admit that yes the resort can prob. Up it on the food, however, there are tons of selections often fresh food be it in the morning or evening! The taco stand at the plaza every night was delicious and fresh. Gotta give the resort props for that. Reserved at the chinese and italian. I highly recommend the asian.not the italian though. I would go back if i want to do a family trip. Lots of couples all ages and family with kids. Pools were great. Spent most of the time by building 3 since it is a lot more quiet and relaxing.Entertainment at 8 for kids and 9pm for adults were fantastic.Recommend to see international show, groovy, and grease!If you plan on staying here please please tip your bartender, your housekeeper, your waiters,your luggage carrier and anyone assisting you.I noticed that these are hard working individuals willing to provide great service to us all.to management, i hope you are paying your employees well!They are representing you very well. Please recognize them all!Cancun VS Cabo?Cancun still bc of the ocean!

We have traveled numerous places in Mexico and Central America. This all inclusive hotel was the best one we have stayed in. For the 10 days we were there we didn't have any major problems. Our room, was in building 7 where we requested to stay prior to our visit because of its reviews. We had a room on the main level. We could walk out of our room and be close to 3 huge pools,one of which had a swim up bar and also a restaurant. We had a few minor complaints: 1-It was far from town and it cost $14 each way either by boat or regular taxi. We like to walk but because of a medical condition that I have and the distance, we had to pay a taxi each time one or both of us went to town. My husband is an avid sport fisherman and he would have preferred that the hotel wouldn't have been that far from the Marina. The fishing was awesome so we had plenty of fish to bring home. The hotel kept the processed fish frozen and safe for us for one night so that we could bring it home on the plane the next day. When we have stayed at other hotels in this area that has not always been the case. 2-One morning we had trouble with some one removing our towels from our two chairs plus our marked umbrella but the pool staff replaced them within minutes. This hotel was full practically the whole time we were there and did an excellent job! 3. The food is the pretty much the same for each meal each day but pretty good quality, great quantity and an excellent presentation but it got boring.

The general staff serving food and drinks and maintaining the property were all extremely friendly and polite, always smiling and saying hello if you passed them on the property. However the front desk managers, particularly Daniel P, have a few things to learn about customer service. We had an issue arise during the stay and Daniel's attitude toward us was extremely condescending and arrogant. Rather than apologizing for our inconvenience (or ever uttering the words "I'm sorry"), he refused to discuss how we could fix the situation. When we asked to work it out with another manager in hopes of finding someone with a better attitude, he threatened to have us forcibly removed from the property for refusing to cooperate with him. Fortunately we were able to speak to another manager and it did not come to this, but this was an unwelcome and stressful experience during our vacation. Beds weren't very comfortable and food while plentiful was not as high-quality as we expected. Overall we liked the property though and would have recommended it if it were not for our unfortunate experience with Daniel.

The Santa Fe made for an overall fun and enjoyable vacation. They were full so people were everywhere. Entertainment was pretty good each night and bars were lively. Pool area was great but be prepared to get up each morning before 8am to save your spot. Restaurants were not good, buffet was better. Overall the good was not as good as other all inclusive resorts that I have stayed in. Good vacation for the amount we paid.

When we first arrived the staff was very helpful and even allowed us to check into our room before 3pm. The problem started when we got to our room the toilet did not work, the in room liquor dispenser broke on the first try and the liquor had rust in it and the light in the shower did not work. It took almost 9 hours and ten phone calls to the front desk to get the toilet fixed and the mini bar fixed. By the time we left the light in our shower was still broken. When I made a complaint to management the rep for the hotel blow me off and said I would get a call from management to discuss the problems I experinced which never came. I definitely will not stay at this resort again and would not recommend it

The hotel was large and impressive. The rooms were nice but the beds were rock hard. The food was ok and disappointing at times at the resturants. The ocean and pools are great. The swim up and regular bars are great and the staff were friendly. All extras were very expensive right down to the WiFi and $3 games of pool in the sports bar. Every time we asked for something from the front desk it never came or took 3 calls. Both my wife and I got a little sick from the food.

Overall good experience. The only downfalls were of course drinks were watered down. Beds were definitely hard and pillows flat. Wifi only worked in the lobby, and was spotty depending on how many people were trying to use it. Food was not great but not terrible. Plenty of variety. For the price it is very reasonable for what you get.

The pictures are definitely deceiving of this property. We were under the impression that if booking at the RIU Santa Fe we could use both RIU Palace property and pools but this was NOT true. BEWARE the rooms smell of a humid, damp, moldly, must! Its a completely disgusting smell that filled all my clothing & Im stilling trying to get out after the 3rd wash of laundry (even my makeup brushes wreaked of the musty smell after we returned home...yuck!) After asking the front desk about the smell they said "the rooms are all the same" and we "couldn't change rooms due to the hotel being completely booked." So we asked to move to the RIU Palace and they wanted us to pay an outlandish extra amount of money per night for the change. Absolutely ridiculous. Also the mattress are very thin and uncomfortable and the air conditioner barely works. Thank goodness we traveled in early Feb because I cant imagine the heat in the middle of summer inside this hotel. You should also be forewarned that if you leave your room ALL of your belongings that mean any value to you are locked up in the safe. My CHANEL earrings on the nightstand mysteriously went missing after returning from our morning walk after housekeeping came in. This was very disappointing and when I inquired about them with the staff I got no follow up :( The only part of this hotel that we actually liked we're the pools and location to the beach. Other than that I wouldnt reccomend this property to any of my friends/fam

This was a great all inclusive experience. Very close to town but still a nice resort experience. Very friendly and helpful staff with great English. Buffets were mostly good and drinks were everywhere. Pools were lovely! Only drawbacks were sometimes dirty public restrooms and a bit noisy at night. Evening entertainment was campy but fun!

Fabulous spot for a winter getaway! Great views and weather. Whales breaching a half mile off shore! Clean contemporary facilities, plenty of dining options and sufficient liquor to drown away memories of northern climates!

Had a great trip at the Riu. Keep in mind that this is a bargain resort and you're getting what you pay for. It's a great place for groups however if you're looking for a more romantic getaway, this probably isn't the spot for you.

The resort was clean, spacious, one of the friendliest all inclusives I've ever visited. Every day there was a gorgeous blue sky, nary a cloud in the sky, and a grand view of the Arch. Our room was spotless and had the best pillows/beds ever. I will say the room could have used a bit of the famous Mexican colors instead of the drab plain brown bedspreads and monotone walls and art. The activities at the pools was just enough without being overdone. The evening entertainment was a bit sketchy and by the seventh night the kiddie entertainment got old. The food was very tasty, but as with all buffets it was never hot enough. The best thing food wise was the choice of espresso, coffee, or cappachino at every single restaurant. Obviously, I do love my caffeinated drinks. I also liked my alcoholic beverages which the bartenders mixed extremely well. At no time did I hear of anyone having any ills related to the water or ice or foods. Riu Sante Fe is a definite two thumbs up.

If your looking for a peaceful get away this is not the place for you. The "king bed" was two twin beds pushed together. The rooms are a bit dated and the food is very mediocre. My husband and I will not stay here again.

This was a very nice property with great options for food. The drinks were very good and not watered down. The beach was beautiful. This hotel, along with some others, is located on the only swimmable beach in this area. The other areas around Cabo apparently have a riptide. If you are looking for a quiet pool, this is not the place, unless you go in the morning while the party-ers are sleeping off their hangovers. The staff blares American pop songs just around the pools with swim-up bars. If you venture further away from this area, the music is less loud and pleasant. The beach has a nice roped-off area with lounge chairs so the beach vendors can't harass you, but we found them not to be too harassing at all once you cross over the roped-off area and venture to the beach. They come by every 5-10 minutes asking if you want any of their wares. A polite "No gracias" sends them on their way. The beds are a little hard but not unbearable. Overall, the room was very comfortable and clean with a nice view. We will be back!
