Our stay at Riu Santa Fe was delightful. Our stay was for seven nights, the weather was slightly below normal for the time we visited but still much warmer than home. We enjoyed relaxing time at the pool. The food was above average for all inclusive. The only negatives were that the mattress was too firm and that our room...

I must say i did enjoy my time at my first all inclusive resort. The property was well maintained and the staff was very nice and professional. The pools were kept clean and the rooms were also very clean. The room i had did not have an elevator so being on the 3rd floor and carrying my baby stroller was...

We are an older couple so didn't do many activities. This hotel is all inclusive and is a good place to get some sun. We just enjoyed lazing by the pool. The buffets were extensive so we had plenty to eat. The housekeeping was excellent. I don't think one of the public floors got one thing dropped on it before...

The grounds are immaculate. The food is great. The rooms are clean so my ranking of a three is basically because of the following. Drugs. There are two entrance to the beach from this property. The minute you walk from the pool area to the sand beach there is a group of vendors directly in front of you offering hats,...

First time a this resort. Far too big for our liking. Walk from the Lobby and most restaurants to building 7 is a very long walk. Did like the building as it was right by the ocean. Nice restaurant there for breakfast and lunch which was very handy. Food left a lot to be desired. Liked the Italian and Mexican...

I have been to Cabo many times, and would highly recommend this place to anyone. It is large, beautiful grounds on an ideal beach (Medano Beach). It's an all inclusive resort, with all restaurants open at hrs. stated always.. There were several infinity pools & regular pools.cleanliness was an understatement. I learned that this co. has over 100 hotels worldwide....

First, I would like to preface my review by noting how BEAUTIFUL Cabo San Lucas is. I'm a novice to world travel but would compare the beautiful scenery and landscapes only to Antigua. The only other tourist destination I have been to in Mexico is Cancun, and based solely on this trip alone, I would choose Cabo in a heart-beat....

We stayed in building 7 which is more for the partying type people. We upgraded to a junior suite and it was totally worth it. The room was fantastic. Our view was amazing and we could Whale watch in the morning from our balcony and had tons of room. The only downside to building 7 is it far from the...

My sister and I stayed in building 7, the party side of the resort. The service and location was great but food and drinks were average. Sugary + watered down drinks unless you tell them to make it a triple. Music needs to be improved – during the day and at the "club" in the resort, they play the same...
