The food was a hit or miss, BUT on a GOOD day I would rate the food was a 5/10. The "fancy" restaurants that you MUST beg to get a reservation to food was worse than fast food. They used the SAME food from lunch and served it on a fancy platter and WAHLA! The alcohol is a waste. I would never pay for a all inclusive to receive Smirnoff and Jose Cuevo as too shelf alcohol. Really?! Top shelf. Lol The beds were kind of hard and the towels were the ROUGHEST towels I've ever felt. They were almost like rubbing your skin against bricks. The staff was amazing & the pools always had a party going which was great. More>

Good Value for the Money

Let me preface this by saying that I am a more adventurous traveler and have never before stayed in an all-inclusive resort. My time at the Riu Santa Fe was brief, but a lot of fun. The resort itself is well-appointed with 3 beautiful pools overlooking a gorgeous and clean beach. The bars and restaurants are plenty. I wasn't a fan of the food at all as it continually bothered my stomach, but there were numerous options. The rooms are immaculate and cleaned extensively every day. That, I was really impressed with. What I wasn't impressed with at all were the beds, which were tiny and felt like sleeping on a rock. All in all, I spent a really enjoyable 3 nights here. While I probably wouldn't go back, I would recommend this to anyone on a tight budget or for a boozey weekend where sleep and relaxation is not a priority. More>

Amazing time at the Riu!

After my stay here I don't understand all the negative reviews either. Resort is gorgeous, large and well maintained, food at the buffet and a la carted was good (didn't love the Mexican one as the food was similar to buffet which should be expected in Mexico) Staff were great, I wish I kept a list of all of our favorites as there were many. Bartenders, wait staff, animation team right down to the valets, towel station and pool staff. If the service is slow its because they are busy, sometimes we had to wait as the bartender spent the time to create the fancy drinks that people order, so if you don't want to wait order beer. Pools were as awesome as they look in the pictures, lots of variety depending on your mood... Just relaxing, feel like being entertained or wanting to just drink and get rowdy. We stayed in the 4000 block which was between the ocean and the main lobby which we liked. Only con (not to this hotel but to cabo area) is not being able to have leisurely swims in the ocean. The tide/undertow is as strong as they say, regardless of fitness level in trying to fight the current. On the plus, a water taxi to lovers beach is a must do and there are tons of activities to do in and around cabo that make it a worthwhile destination (loved zip lining and swimming with whale sharks through cabo adventures) We will definitely stay here again!

To anyone even slightly interested, do not stay here. To make a long story short, my friend and I stayed here in Cabo San Lucas in November 2015. A day into our vacation, we put our valuables in the safe, placed the "do not disturb" sign on our door, and went about our day. When we came back, our cash was gone. $750 stolen. When we reported it we were told there was a cleaning log filled out by on of the maids saying she cleaned out room for a half an hour. When the director of the hotel confronted her about it, she said she wrote that by mistake and she was never in our room. Sonia, the director, then told us the maids name and basically that if we wanted to speak with her and take matters into our own hands, we could. So the five of us (the director, the maid, her union rep and my roommate and I) spoke about it which only ended by them saying there is nothing they could do. Sonia then proceeded to say we have no proof of anyone stealing your money, it could have been your friends for all we know and we can't refund you. If that wasn't enough, she said to my roommate, "didn't you say you worked for a bank? I'm sure that's not the only money you have to use." They didn't do anything for us and our vacation was ruined. Needless to say the food sucked too. Terrible vacation! I would never recommend it for anyone!!! Meaghan V More>
