MIXED FEELINGS

After reading so many different reviews I decided to give it a chance. It wasn't as bad as some reviewers made it seem. Its average. Pros: 1. When I asked them to switch my room they did! First room had no working AC (Building 1). 2. The place is clean. Employee's are all over either cleaning, painting etc.. 3. Food in the main buffet changed daily & they have authentic Mexican good. Big plus! 4. The entertainment was great. Near the pool & at night. Well except for the three singing guys..(I didn't like that show) 5. I never had to wait for a drink. Cons: 1. Check in was weird. One guy checked us all in at once. Took to long & we still had to wait for a room key. 2. The pools are beautiful but definitely need a little touch up at the infinity pool. The floor tiles are coming out. (Not the pool with a swim up pool) 3. The beds & pillows need a upgrade. Oh and TV too but I wasn't there to watch tv. 4. It would have been nice to get drinks by the pool. I had to get out to get my drinks. I know there was swim up bars but those were obviously packed & not kid friendly. That didn't bother me though. Its vacation! Over all It wasn't bad..I would go again but maybe stay in a ocean view room. My kids had fun & that made me happy.

My wife and I stayed at the Riu Santa Fe June 23-28 and where in building #4. When we arrived at the Riu at 10:30 am, nobody gave us the run down (we have been to several all inclusive, and they always go over everything), they got us checked in and told us we can not go to our room until 3 pm (which was ok) . we got to our room and it was facing a construction site (the construction started at 7am and went until 7 pm) and the noise was horrible, and the dust was horrendous (we could not use our balcony) . When we went to ask about paying for an up grade we where told no. the manager was not a very nice person. The front desk was terrible and rude , however the rest of the staff where awesome. the food was good, the waiters and waitresses where absolutely amazing. The beds where a little hard, but the rooms where nice.

VERY BAD HOTEL

We paid extra money to get upgraded to a room with ocean view, unfortunately the first night we discovered that the sheets had blood stains in them. The cleaning staff did not come by our room until after 11pm to just give us new sheets, as they did no change them for us. When we were changing the sheets, we noticed the mattress protector had not been cleaned for a while, it was actually a brown color and not white as it was very disgusting and old. Food was not that great, not a lot of variety and in most of their restaurants the food did not seemed fresh. The hotel itself needs some renovations and needs to be updated. WIFI is not free. You have to pay for it. I would just pay more money and look for a better hotel rather than staying at this hotel ever again.

Paradise in cabo

We went here during the July 4 week. Stayed for 5 days. This place is paradise. We went with our two kids. Everything was fabulous. Service was great. We had no issues. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Most of them did not not understand that much English, but I got around this by using google translate which helped tremendously. Food was excellent. We had many food choices at the buffet. Food was very good and suited our taste. We like spicy food. And there was plenty of sea food, pork dishes and beef. Kids had plenty to choose from which was great. Grounds are extremely well maintained. Super clean and the lawns are very well maintained. Pools are excellent. Pool bars are great! So many cocktails to choose from. Could not get through all the drinks. The beach was wonderful at night. This was our hangout place after 9 pm after dinner. Great place to listen to the ocean and look at the stars. When we were there, there was a Michael Jackson show what was fantastic!!! The other bars were great. Got so many drinks when watching the shows, The sports bar was excellent when we had the grab the odd snack. Kids loved it. So did the adults. Front desk was super helpful during checking and when we had to print our boarding passes. Rooms were very spacious and the beds were very comfortable and cleaned daily and mini bar was restocked. Fresh towels daily. Staff was super helpful when we had questions about going to downtown. Wifi super fast and included in the booking. I honestly do no know what the negative reviews are about. This was our first time in Mexico. We were treated very nicely by all the staff. We did not want to leave. They are such warm people. We will be visiting again. Thank you Hotel Riu!

We had such a fun time at the Riu Santa Fe! The resort was beautiful and clean, the beach and the view of the ocean/surroundings was beautiful and the sand was always clean. The rooms we were in were basic and there were no elevators in the building we were in so there is lots of walking up and down stairs. Lots of drinking/drunk people at the swim up bars. Resort is walking distance from the beach to Medano Beach, Mango Deck, the Marina and downtown Cabo. The food and drinks in the resort were good. The Italian restaurant was our favourite and the buffet by the beach is the best buffet. Staff were very friendly and the entertainment throughout the day and in the night time was great. There was always music playing throughout the day at the pools and a live band after the theatre shows at night. I would recommend this hotel!
