Fun in the Sun!

Spend 4 nights here for my sister's 40th birthday and we had a blast! Pool activities were fun - there's even ribs and chicken bbq poolside by Building 7. We decided to do a snorkeling trip on a speedboat and it turned out to be our best day in Cabo! Caught a huge tuna fish which the crew made into a poke/ceviche for us. Food and drinks were included! We were a party of 13 and there was a Bachelorette party group of 7 or so. So much fun! The only reason it only got a 3 stars from me was the food. All Inclusive food and drinks was awesome, but food could be very much improved. Definitely, the worst was the steak place (right off main pool in Building 7), and the best was the Italian Restaurant. The girls went to get a massage at the spa on our last day as well as we got $35 credit from our vacation package. That was nothing special. Overpriced as we still had to pay $120 plus tip for a so-so massage. Oh well. We had a blast nonetheless! It's all about the company! People were there to have a great time, so the atmosphere was as such. Thanks Riu Santa Fe! More>

Excellent value for an all inclusive resort in Los Cabos

We visited Los Cabos in Early June this year (2016) to attend the destination wedding of a close friend's daughter. At the recommendation of the wedding party we booked our stay at the Riu Santa Fe, in a different building from where all our friends were staying,but we had a beautiful room with ocean view overlooking the main swimming pool, and also the famous Los Cabos rocks. There are several swimming and wading pools throughout the property, each with its own bar as well. While one has easy access to the beach, swimming is not advised as there is a sharp drop off at waste deep water, and when the wind picks up, the waves are quite formidable as are rip currents. Outside vendors on the beach sell the usual touristic stuff. Boat taxis to the Cabos rocks, lovers and divorce beach can be booked there as well. Pony rides and parasailing vendors are also available. The resort has a few on site shops and several established tour companies have representatives available to arrange local tours, transportation etc etc. The activities directors at this facility lead pool games and exercises throughout the day, and pool volleyball games take place every afternoon. There is also an on site theater where live bands perform nightly. Being a first time visitor to the area, we appreciated the excellent service of the staff at this facility, who really strive very hard to do a good job and that too with a smile. With ample choices of on site dining available, both buffet style and upscale sit down restaurants as well, there were additional fees for beverages or dining, anywhere on the facility. Of course,as with everything " all- inclusive" there was a tendency of some guests to over indulge on their alcoholic beverages, but we did not see or hear of any misbehavior during our 4 day stay at this facility. We enjoyed our all meals at this facility and as mentioned the huge variety from genuine Mexican culinary delights to Western, European and Asian cuisine can satisfy any palate. In the open air dining areas, the occasional bird would fly onto a table where the diners had just left after a meal, to sample the crumbs etc on the plates, before the normally efficient wait staff cleared the table and swept the area. Though our friends made their bookings directly with the hotel, we made ours through Expedia and also received a very good discount too. We chose Grayline Tours as our Airport to Hotel shuttle and their drivers were very courteous and professional. There is easy access to the beach from this resort as well as the neighboring and more pricey Riu Palace which is a separate resort within this large well managed property. The hotel has a " no spring breakers policy" and discourages partying in the rooms, so that resort guests are not inconvenienced by loud and boisterous people. Security is good ..several security personnel on duty as well as video monitoring of most common areas. There is WIFI available, and though free in some limited areas, it is relatively inexpensive if you actually avail of the "paid" service, which we did, and that way your computer, smartphone etc. can use WIFI in your room and everywhere else on the property The hotel does not exchange foreign currency, but major credit cards are available. During our stay the resort was reasonably full, but not crowded and there was quite a cosmopolitan mix of guests from all over the world, with North and South America nationals being the most represented. While most resort personnel can understand and speak English, Spanish is the typical language spoken. I would certainly go back for a vacation to the Riu Santa Fe. More>

Nice resort by the beach.

I visited this resort about 4 years ago and had such a great experience that I went back for a second time 09/2016. It was not as nice as I had experienced before. The quality of the food went down. Also, there was so much noise because they are doing construction at the resort next door Riu Palace. I had a massage by the beach ($30) but I couldn't relax because of all the noise from the construction and there were a group of people right next to the massage canopy. I would've expected the massage therapist to tell them to move as we were getting a massage and were trying to relax. The massage itself was great and very affordable. The customer service was good and the hotel grounds are exceptionally clean. There is a 5 min walk to the beach from the main hotel rooms...so if you don't want to walk in the heat those 5 min to the beach then don't stay here. I wanted beach view but the extra cost was $200 and I'm glad I didn't pay the extra money because the area facing the rooms is where all the party ppl go and it was loud and crowded every day. The drinks are also a bit watered down. You need to drink a lot to get drunk. There are other pool areas away from the beach that you can chill and hang out and have some peace. More>

Can't wait to go back

We have been a the Riu Santa Fe just once . We had room in building 7. Fourth floor on side that faces the pool and Ocean. Would defiantly stay again in this building, no elevators in other buildings. We loved that you can now dine at any restaurant at the RIU properties now with out making reservation. loved the Asian, Steak house and Italian restaurant. Our Son had a great time at the kids club, on this property the club is very small compared to other properties we vacationed at but he had a great time and instructors were excellent in watching him while we went to gym or spa. You will have a great time here matter where you stay and make sure to take a water taxi out and go see the arch while in Cabo, more fun than it looks and inexpensive!!! More>

Best Riu location so far!

My husband and I got married at the Riu in Jamaica last year and it was lots of fun but when we decided to take a late vacation this year to Cabo, it was a great decision!!! Although it's very hot and humid during this time, check in was easy, very nice and helpful staff, very very clean resort, the food was delicious....especially the tacos and the mid day sautéed shrimp and mussels. We went off the resort a few times and each time we felt safe and it was easy!!! This location is a large layout but we didn't mind the minimal walking. Overall, we will be back for sure!!! Loved it!!! More>
