This was our second trip to Cabo. Our first time there we stayed at Dreams. Dreams was great but it was far from downtown Cabo. That cab ride was expensive. So this time we decided to stay somewhere closer and we chose Hotel RIU Santa Fe. Our room was in building 7, it was near the pool and one of...

In the early morning the view from our sunny balcony in building 7 was just beautiful. Our room had a view of the infinity pool out to the ocean. The blues of these waters contrasted wonderfully with the tightly clipped fuchsia colored blooms on the bougainvillea flowering around the patio area. The famous Los Cabos rocks were visible further out....

We just spent a week at Riu Santa Fe in early December and enjoyed our time there. The hotel was equipped adequately and people were nice, though the food could be improved. The beach was also great and facing the famous Arch of Las Cabos. Sunwing's local rep,, Alexis Herrero, was very helpful for our local tours and excursions. In...

Great place to vacation and good food. My only complaints are the pools are cold, there are a lot of bees around the pool bars (I got stung along with several other people) and I am pretty sure the alcohol is watered down as I drank a lot and did not feel drunk.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon. Great all inclusive resort with decent discount rates through Living Social. The only reasons I don't give 5 stars is because several of the nights we were there multiple restaurants were closed which they didn't tell us would happen. However, it seemed like the theme of the main...

Our room had a beautiful ocean view on the 3rd floor. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was good and especially loved breakfast every morning at the beach with the view of the cruise ships coming in ... very relaxing. We will be back!

Honestly the price that you pay for this resort is definitely worth it! People please keep in mind that there are thousands of guests staying at this resort at any given time and the hotel really does do its best to keep up with everyone's requests/demands. If you want 5 star luxury then pay for 5 star luxury and stop...

Nice accommodations, but the bath towels were incredibly rough. (Although the pool towels were soft and fluffy.) The breakfast buffet had so many wonderful choices. Lunch was okay, and dinner was best at the Italian and International buffet. (We did not try the steakhouse.) The spa was a little pricey, but the massage was great. Although there were a lot...
