"Will not be returning"
Beautiful location with great pools and wonderful staff. However, this is a resort for people looking to party far more than it is for families. As of 11 am, very loud music was played in the main pool. Activities seemed to encourage the atmosphere of drunkenness, as one of the activities was a beer guzzling competition in the center of the main pool […] area. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable, and the kids club was tiny and virtually non-existent. So, if you are looking to go on a vacation to let loose and party, this is the place. If you are looking for a family resort, than despite its marketing, this is not the resort I would choose. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Better than expectedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff, but the room assigned to us had musty smell (must have been some water damage effect from hurricane). There were no available rooms to move us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pros & Cons"
pillows were a bit hard, food was a 3 star, wine in the food courts - do not drink it - tastes horrible ! hard liquor in the bars - good choices! great location. 1/2 hr walk on the beach to Marina area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great value. Getting reservations at the restaurants was a little challenging as most options were unavailable or only available at late hours (which didn't work well for a family trip). That said, overall it was a very enjoyable stay and we'd go again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
went the whole stay with out air they offered another room, but we declined were not in the mood to pack clothes back up and move. Next day they had maintenance working on it for about two hours at our convenience but it never worked. Other then That say was great and they had a great mini bar in room with real bottles of alcohol at your disposal, NO […] EXTRA caharge Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't stay there"
Terrible..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel,great food and location."
very nice hotel but not body cream and hair conditioner in bathroomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a wonderful place to stay. I was leary of the "all-inclusive" part....but now I am sold. The food was excellent and everyone at the hotel really treated us like we were special. I will return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What you get at an All Inclusive property"
Not a fan of all inclusive hotels. Having disclosed that I dont think you can get quality food and drinks in this type of hotels. If you stick to basics you can get by with the food and if you stick to bottled beer you should be ok. Room decor is TERRIBLE this guys use same materials and style for a motel, gas station, furniture shop and "luxury" hotel. […] Rooms are a but rundown despite of the hotel not being that old.

"Cabo Vacation at Riu Palace"
We were really impressed with how nice and beautiful the resort was, especially considering we were there just a few weeks after the big hurricane hit. The staff was super friendly overall and very enthusiastic when it came to the fun activities at the resort. Just make sure to make reservations to the restaurants early in the morning the day you wish […] to dine at them (unless you want to gorge on the buffet everyday, which isn't too shabby either). We learned that lesson the hard way and weren't able to try all of them. If you've never been, I definitely recommend a glass bottom boat tour out to the arch. It's fairly quick (doesn't take up your entire day), easy to make a reservation (they're offering tours practically every hour), cheap, and provides some really cool views of the beaches, arch, and fish. The hotel was great when it came to reserving any type of adventure or activity we wanted to arrange. Definitely an enjoyable/relaxing experience overall at Riu Palace.

We were hosted and Hurricane Odile destroyed the hotel. We are grateful for the care that we provided to extricating himself during that crisis. Probably back when reestablished .Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel would not hesitate to go back!!"
Great hotel, service was great and a lot of variety of food. Hotel had good ammenities and loved all the pools. One downside of hotel was beer was a bit snuky but mixed drinks were great. A good place to relax or to have a good time with all the events at the pool and in the theatre.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not accomdating. Food and drinks were mediocre. We expected more for a $1300 stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value and service"
We went for a girl's trip. It was our first time in Cabo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean (we got an ocean view room). The pools were nice and not overcrowded. The buffet was good (we didn't even try any restaurants and didn't really feel like we missed out). And the drinks were flowing. Will be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location ! Amazing poolside view"
I just got back from cabo and miss it already. The hotel was great! Amazing view of the beach and the famous arcs. Staff was super friendly and always welcoming. I can't wait to go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel that can be nicer"
My husband and I had good time at this hotel for five nights. However, a few things can make this place even better. The service at the check-in counter did not meet our expectations. Service in the restaurants etc was excellent. You can drink as much as you want. People were drinking everywhere. Interesting so many were drinking while in the swimming […] pool for hours and we wondered where did they pee as there are to toilets around any of the swimming pools! There are no washrooms in any of the restaurants either, so don't the only way to pee out of the pools will be to take a long walk to your rooms. And free wifi is available for 90minutes and only in the front lobby and only one signon session is allowed per day. So, we think Riu Santa Fe can be a better place to have fun.

Great Time fun for all Young And Middle age ADULTS if your looking for a hotel that is all inclusive and Has lots of energized young people Ready to As the young generation will say T.U (Turn Up) then Rio Sante Fe is the spot 24 hours Your On!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Horrible service, food and water down drinks at the bar.Genuine Expedia guest review

"It was okay."
I honestly felt like I was on a cruise ship the whole time. The food is similar as well as the service and the clientele. If you like to party, this is your place! We don't, so it was kinda annoying, but it wasn't unbearable. At the pool there is always loud (but good) music and young drunk people, and the entertainment is the staff trying to get people […] involved in dancing and drinking contests, or volleyball games, bingo, etc. The resort is huge. We were in building 7 and there are pros and cons to that. It is close to the beach and has it's own pools, restaurant, bars & concierge, but you still need to go to the front desk quite often, especially if you are leaving the resort, and that is a pretty far walk. The biggest problem I had was that I paid for ocean view and I really couldn't see the ocean unless I leaned pretty far out on my balcony. It was pool view, partial ocean view at best. It was also not easy to get to the rooms on the west side where our room was, because you have to walk through the whole U-shaped building around to that side, and there is no cut through. The free wifi (90 min per day per person, all has to be used at one time) is only in the main lobby. We bought the extra wifi for the rest of the resort and it only worked in our room and it was still spotty. It doesn't really work by the pools or in the restaurants. The food was sub par, but I recommend the a la carte Italian restaurant, as it was the best one we had during our stay. The buffet food was lukewarm but other than that it was alright. I liked the drinks too, they weren't all that bad, but I'm not much of a connesseur when it comes to alcohol. In our room, there were only 2 pillows but we asked for more and they gave us more without a problem. The bed was okay, but I am spoiled at home with an amazing bed. The bed spread is thin, but there is a better blanket in the closet if you like to have something thicker. The air conditioning worked great in the room, especially compared Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Hotel on the Beach"
Everything was great, except we never had wifi (even though we paid for it). The hotel staff was never able to get it working for us. We needed it, but enjoyed being forced to "unplug" from our work.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Riu Santa Fe"
Nice hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had read previous reviews and have to admit a bit concerned. We were pleasantly surprised! Although, not everything was perfect, we had a great time.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was good, food was great and hotel stuff was very nice, polite. Facility was very clean, and I will always come back. The only thing that I have not like is the bathroom didn't have conditionare and shampoo, but other than that, I enjoyed our vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice pools (but they close at 8pm), beautiful rooms, right off the beach, great spa on site, best breakfast buffet I've ever experienced!Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel location is great, quality of sheets and towels could be better, a little too rough. But overall stay was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would not stay there again"
this was my first visit to Cabo and Riu Santa Fe Hotel. I arrived on Thursday afternoon and on Friday lunch time my purse with my camera, key to the room and some cash was stolen from the Stake House restaurant at the Riu Santa Fe hotel. The room was ok, pillows not comfortable, lots of aunts in the room , old TV, towels were old . The food in the […] restaurants was just OK , best food was at the Stake House and the Baja California Buffet, the Italian , Mexican and Asian food was not good. All restaurants serve the same wine which is not drinkable. The large pool by the beach is very loud you can not relax there the music is too loud, but the view is fantastic! Overall I would say it was ok for the money but if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay with comfy beds do not stay there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel with a very nice pool by beach"
I had a great time with friends and family. The pool by the beach is amazing and the breakfast and lunch buffet were excellent. I didn't like the a la carte restaurant very much and the fact that you must make all resevation on day one. I also didn't like the night entertainment. I like the hotel close proximity to downtown and the nightclubs are g […] reat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location next to the beach"
I was a little skeptical about the all inclusive. There was at least 4 restaurant's for dinner and a great buffet with many choices. There is always somewhere to eat throughout the day at all hours. All the restaurants are free, and all the bars and swim up bars are also free in the hotel. Very well worth my money!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice beach front hotel. Watch out for mosquitoes"
Very clean room but ac seems to be not working sometimes. The staff was great for the most part. However, it was hard to get ahold of the front hotel receptionist. Mosquitoes were biting us when the sun came down. As for food Excellent tacos and coconut ice cream!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on beach with nice pool"
Had a amazing time, the pools are great and so is atmosphere...food could be better and needs room service! Overall loved it thoughGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good party hotel, bad food"
The hotel was nice. However the food wasn't very good. We went for a bachelorette party so it served the purpose of what we went for, to drink and have a good time, however If I was going to get away I probably wouldn't stay here. When you go on vacation one of the best things is the food, and their food was very disappointingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near the beach with average food."
The food could've been better and there were a lot of bugs even some in the room which was discusting. The hotel is nice but the experience could be better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort but horrible food/drinks"
The place was very clean, great location, and the staff was very courteous. I am unable to recommend this hotel to others though because the food was disgusting and the drinks were heavily watered down. Will definitely spend more money next time I decide to do an all-inclusive.Genuine Expedia guest review
