Not very clean..average service..noisy.Some staff friendly but overall poor quality for a 4 star hotel. If you have difficulty walking or have small children it is spread out and some buildings are far away from food and the beach

OK... So I wrote a review about the Riu Santa Fe in January. Since then I have kept my eye on other reviews. The Hotel was extremely clean with cleaning staff walking around 24/7 not once did I see "puke in the pools or in gardens". This just did not happen.. I WILL BE OPEN AND HONEST ABOUT THIS RESORT.......

This was our 3rd trip to the Riu Santa Fe. Much to report. Much has improved since our 2nd trip two years ago! Arrival -- Awesome. Margaritas, fruit drinks, cerveza....all cold and immediately put into your hand. Check-in was a pleasure, as always. Bed -- Just ok. A little hard. Be prepared to not sleep extremely well.

This was our first time in Cabo. We arrived before 3pm and checked in was easy. My husband tipped the guy at the front desk $20 hoping to get an upgrade from building 6 to building 7. He allowed us to go take a look of the two rooms to compare. We decided to upgrade for an ocean view in...

We Have say at other Riu hotels and we love the convenience of all inclusive, there is no need to go out of the property. Weather was perfect on July, a lot of activities,plentiful of stuff to do for my twelve years old an for my nineteen and twenty years old kids.

Nice pools, good food, nice rooms. Only problem we had was with the free Internet in the lobby. Paid for Internet, not too expensive and worked fine. At 5-6 pm there are a few inebriated folks in the pool that can be annoying but otherwise we loved the pools. Had a room with an ocean view that was spectacular.

Very clean resort with friendly staff and great location. Food us OK, after a week here we were ready for home cooking. Alcohol seemed to all taste the same regardless of what drink was ordered. Exterior perimeter of resort is a bit scary. We took the bus to town several times and it was easy to catch. Had a fun...

The Riu Santa Fe is still one of the best. The staff are amazing, the food is incredible, the rooms are perfect, the entertainment is awesome. The elevators never worked which was terrible, especially with people who had strollers etc. Other than that, it was really great! Thanks Riu.

DONT EVER STAY AT A RIU HOTEL - I have never seen such poor service anywhere. We paid in advance for 4 ocean view rooms and we received a view of dirt only. The girl who checked us in claimed stupidity and couldn’t show us on a map where our rooms were. We have to walk about a mile to...
