I am 52 but I thought I was at a huge college party!
Kurt S, Green Bay, Wisconsin

I stayed at the Riu Santa Fe from March 5-14 2017. I stayed at a lot of Riu hotels around the world but this one disappointed me the most! This hotel tells All travel agents no spring breakers allowed. The management at this hotel needs to be fired and they need to hire management that respects everyone that stays there. The only people working there that respects guests are the workers! The workers told me that this is the worst time of the year for them. I would agree to that on some of the things I saw there. This hotel has over 900 rooms and I would say 800 rooms had college spring breakers parting until all hours into the night. I hope the word gets out to all the people that spend money at this hotel all year long and decide not to go there because of poor management decisions. One thing that really was bad is that they let drunken college breakers in the buffet at night with their swimsuits on and no shoes. These drunken spring breakers would then bounce around grabbing whatever they wanted to eat. They also served people that got so drunk they threw up right by the pool and choked on it. This created a big disturbance by the pool with rescue personnel doing cpr. The swim up bar had to have 300 college spring breakers in it drinking and nobody got out to go to the restroom. I am a pool professional and I would not even put my feet in this pool. The balconies were full of spring breakers chugging beer with funnels and hoses, yelling profoundly at all of their friends walking by. Ok I think most people that read this got the picture. I will say the room was cleaned well daily, once again the workers worked hard daily. The food was average , the Italian restaurant was the best. When we went to sign up for the restaurant you could tell they were calling people in before the spring breakers. The grounds are well kept. We had a ocean view room in building 7 and the views were spectacular. We went uptown a couple of days to get away from the large spring break crowds at the hotel. I rated this hotel at a 3 because the employees worked hard to keep it nice. The management will find out that people will not come back again. I will never go back here and my Riu experience will point me in finding a different Hotel chain. Hopefully they change their rules so everyone enjoys their vacation.

Almost perfect

We really enjoyed the amenities, comfortable bed, only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the room could have been a bit cleaner, we found a few hairs in the shower. The staff was great, specially helping us finding a doll my youngest daugther lost

Great Vacation - We'll Be Back

We booked our trip fully aware that it was spring break. There was an abundance of young travellers but we felt they stayed around the two beach pool bars. We just stayed away from those pool bars. We witnessed drunk kids but also multiple drunk adults. Never felt disrespected or unsafe. Firstly, the resort was clean and very well kept. We were staying in building 3 and found that everything was within a 3-4 min leisurely walk. If that. The buffets were great. Offering a very large selection. I was very impressed. We do wish that reservations could be made at the specialty restaurants. The pools were clean and there was never a lack of loungers. We do wish that wifi was already included and a bit better. I was a hassle to purchase the room wifi. The resort itself was beautiful. The spring breakers are only there for a short time. We probably won't travel again to Cabo during spring break but our experience will not affect our decision to go back to a Riu resort or specifically the Santa Fe.

Fun place but can do better in Cabo

We stayed here at the start of spring break, won't do that again., as they cater to the partying. Having said that the grounds are beautiful, and the staff friendly. However, arrival was chaotic, some of the rooms in our group were incorrect, and the staff is not quite able to handle problems that are out of the daily routine. You should know that the grounds are so spread out, that getting around takes time, and at least for the first couple of days was confusing. For all-inclusive food, which we had to do because of our group, it wasn't bad although a little monotonous, and except for the Mexican restaurant, wouldn't recommend the specialty restaurants. The wines were poor, and in my opinion, the alcohol tasted watered down. There are better choices in Cabo, especially for adults.

Drunken Spring Breakers

If you enjoy hoards of stumbling, highly intoxicated, loud, rude college students, this is your vacation destination. Literally hundreds of college students overtook the infinity pool next to the ocean, and it was like we landed on Fraternity Row. I saw a few women vomiting, two drunken fights, and a girl so drunk that she didn't know her bikini top had fallen off. We have been to Riu resorts for the last 3 years and have never experienced this. This Riu resort is large and VERY spread out. Depending upon your room location, you may be walking many miles back and forth from the beach to the restaurants, etc. I walked 7 miles one day between my room, the restaurants, and the beach. Overall, it was a disappointment and I will never stay at this particular Riu again. On the positive side, Riu delivers a brand that is consistent in terms of food, cleanliness, and entertainment. The service was very good.
