Great vacation in Cabo!

Stayed at RIU Santa Fe October 4th -11th. This is our first time staying at the RIU but our third time in Cabo. We really enjoyed our stay. We were in building 4 close to everything, this is an older building. I suggests you stay on the upper floors. The lower sections smell like mold. The new builidng are 8 to 11. Beautiful new rooms. Very modern. I am sorry I didn’t know this before. Our friends stayed there. This is were the pool parties and the kids and adult water slides are. The water slides were amazing!! Even for adults. The only thing is every second day there is a pool party, there is really loud boom boom dance music starts at 7 pm! Just in case your looking for quiet time in your room. You will hear it for all the rooms in these buildings. Our bed was hard like rock and only after a few days we mentioned this to front desk and they gave us a bed topper,so much better!! Darn the things you learn lol. All in all the resort is beautiful, clean, the food was great. The staff were lovely and friendly, helpful and always happy. It’s quiet season so the resort is not full. Some of the restaurants were not opened. They don’t have full service restaurants most of them are buffet style. I guess if your fussy you might not like this. We paid $1005 from Toronto. Amazing price for the value. It’s was beautiful weather everyday. It’s worth going downtown to the Marina and Restaurants. Happy Endings is a favourite ask for the special. Salvador G and Salvador 2 awesome food! Los Cabos is a favourite location. We will be back!

love it here

From arriving at the airport and being greeted by the staff this is a excellent place to stay. The rooms are clean and the staff in all areas are wonderful. We have been to this resort now 5 times and will continue to return. All staff are more than willing to go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be. The beach is endless the sunsets and sunrises are beautiful can't say enough about the place.

FRIENDLY STAFF

We just got back from a 1 week stay at this fabulous "heaven on earth" hotel/all inclusive. The food was fabulous the drinks were non stop and the entertainment was for all to enjoy!!! We especially loved the staff High Five to Bresian, Rosenburg, Antonia and Hector.....I cannot say enough about them....they treated us like family....always smiling and helpful and sincere. This was our first time in this resort and we WILL be back....and we are telling everyone we know and everyone we don't know that we recommend this place 100%....also family oriented as well, lots of little ones and they were having a lot of fun

RESORT: The resort itself is really nice. We stayed in one of the newer buildings of the resort. Fair bit of a walk from the lobby and plaza area but feels longer because of the sun/heat. Some shuttle service to/from would be a great addition! ROOM: Our room was on the 3rd floor and make sure to note - there are no elevators. We definitely had to get our steps in coming in/out of our room. The room itself was very nice. We had one King bed which had a couple of sheets as covers. We did get cold due to having the AC on full blast but there is a heavier blanket in the closet that we used. The bathroom is a modern style and has bodywash in a dispenser for your use. No bars of soap to be found! There is a small fridge with bottled water and sodas. The liquor dispensers can be found above the fridge - tequila, vodka and I can't remember the other two. Your room key acts as your power source so you need to have it inserted to turn the lights/tv on. The AC will shut off anytime u have the sliding door open. POOLS: The pools towards the back of the resort are very lively and the views of the beach are beautiful. The entertainment team usually has events going on - zumba, water aerobics, games, contests, etc. There is a quieter pool in the center of the resort that we visited one day and that was a much more relaxing atmosphere. There is an entirely separate area for the pool parties. We could see this space from our balcony but not to worry - the latest those parties go is until 11pm. FOOD: We found we really had to plan our meals due to the hours of service. This was the part I did not like. One morning we missed breakfast at the main indoor buffet and had to find another outdoor buffet that was open. There were restaurants that were closed on most nights with the exception of maybe 1 per night. We guessed it was due to the fact that we were there in October so it's low season. Our fav's were the main indoor buffet, the Italian restaurant Carusso and the Mexican restaurant La Misión. The Asian restaurant and Steakhouse were not open at all while we were there. None of the restaurants were open after 10pm. Your best bet at that time is visiting the Sports Bar for the snacks they have on hand - burgers (need to be reheated in microwave), nachos, fruit or baked goods. We tried to get snacks one evening after the pool party and it was completely wiped out. FUN FUN FUN: The pool parties are a lot of fun. They have cubbies to put your flip flops, clothing, etc. in so that was useful. The music ranges according to their themes but for the most part we danced and danced and danced! There are two levels so the upper level has tables in the pool area and most people would just hang out in that area. In the lower level, main pool area everyone is dancing and splashing around. They have foam coming down in the middle of the pool throughout the party. It can get slippery around the deck of the pool so we made sure to be careful about that. If you've not been I recommend at least checking it out. We also hung out at PACHA to get some more dancing in. I believe it usually opens at 11pm. It's on the smaller side but it was a good time. SERVICE: Just about everyone who helped us was very NICE and did their best to provide us with exceptional customer service. The only thing I would mention is when we asked about start/end times for restaurants or events we received varying responses from people. I think it might be because things change too often here. SHOPS: There are a few small shops in the plaza. I liked the little market - they had souveniers, snacks and Coca Cola for purchase. They use Pepsi products at this resort. They had a reasonable exchange rate when using your credit card. Overall this is a very nice resort. It could use a few tweaks to make it GREAT - More OPEN food options, later dining options, elevators & a lil shuttle wouldn't hurt either as this resort has definitely grown ;)

Awesome property, great entertainment, good food, and for all you all inclusive people, premium drinks galore (with your own bar in your room)! The only reason I couldn't rate this resort higher than a 3 is only because of 2 issues. 1) There are no elevators and we were on the 3rd floor. 2) On our last night of stay, a strong storm came in and our ceiling leaked (more less rained) onto the head of our bed and closet. However, we loved the endless pool and the entertainment there throughout the day and all of the entertainment the resort offered at night.
