While I realize this is a resort review, not a trip review, I did want to start out by saying this: We are frequent travelers to Cancun and the Playa del Carmen area and were very impressed with Cabo. From the stress free arrival at the small airport, to the polite and professional timeshare/vendors (yes, I did say polite), and...

Can't say enough good things about this place! The hotel itself is beautiful and very well kept. The infinity pool was awesome! The staff were friendly and accommodating and we especially loved the entertainment staff. They always made sure people were having a good time. The food was very good and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Contrary to...

I echo some of the recent comments: -dinner reservations - we could never get any - always fully booked -very noisy and difficult to sleep -the beach was a constant barrage of sellers - selling everything from jewellery to hard drugs -there is no shade on the beach at this...

This gorgeous, all-inclusive resort is right on the beach. Clean, clean, clean, always people cleaning and managing this property, and were happy and very friendly.The pools were wonderful, activities were fun, drinks and food were excellent! Walking in to our room in block 2 (quieter area of the resort) we noticed the bar with bottles hanging upside down, perched ready...

I bought this trip for my husband and I because it was on sale, I didn't have high hopes as I haven't loved Mexico in the past. We ended up getting divorced before the vacation and I ended up going alone and had a great time! Lots of quiet places for reflection, and lots of young people (I'm 30) to...

The RIU Santa Fe comes in at an 8.5 out of 10 for my rating. I've been to resorts with better a la carte restaurants (but the Santa Fe's are still very good), better beaches (but not much better than this one) but the property is very well kept and the staff are great. If you want quiet you can...

Had a great time in a great resort. The property is massive. It took us nearly 15 minutes to walk to our room. Food was good and Arturo in the Baja buffet gave us the best service. Thinking about doing another trip there with ours sons.

Rooms were spacious and adequate. Buffets were abundant with food, lots of variety and food very fresh. Of the a la carte restaurants, we lived the Italian the best and went twice. There are two large pools. The one near the beach is noisy with lots of activities and partying at the bars. The one closer to the main lobby...

Recently stayed at the RIU Santa Fe and had a wonderful time. The resort is beautiful and the staff was exceptional. We stayed at RIU Varedaro last year and thought the food was great but this was even better. The buffet had a great selection and we also ate at the Italian and Steakhouse, both very good. The only disappointment...
