My family of six (four in their 20's and parents over 50) just returned from RIU Santa Fe. I would go back to the RIU santa fe simply for the price and the location of Cabo. It was my first time travelling to Cabo, and absolutely loved it. I have been to Puerto Vallarta and Mayan Riviera before, but Cabo...

This hotel had mold all on the curtains. Instead of trying to put me in another room they offered to only change the curtains when the smell of mold was already in the room. I was also told the mold was not unhealthy because the buildings are not built with wood! The room decorations were a blast from the past....

I have been to this hotel three times and will always go back. It has a great party pool, but if you want quiet there is a lot of that! It's massive and suits everyone! Building 7 is the best for being close to beach and part pool! Not best room service.

Location: located in Cabo you need a taxi or shuttle to get to the hotel. We reserved a shuttle at a great price on the hotel website when making our reservation. I highly recommend it. Rooms: big, clean, and comfortable. Food: they have many specialty restaurants which require a reservation but are included. The main buffet is in a beautiful...

Me and my boyfriend always stay on the playa del carmen part of mexico but decided cabo would be a fun new place. After reading many mixed reviews on this resort, we were a little nervous to be trying it. First and foremost the ocean is our favourite place in the whole entire world. Many reviews said this is not...

Well this certainly is not the Riu Tequila in Playa Del Carmen, but they try hard. I think that Playa has more to offer than Cabo San Lucas. The excursions here are horribly expensive. The food is hohum, same every day. If you can't afford the excursions then two weeks can be very boring. Also it's quite cool here, especially...

Was there January 8-15. So, very clean very nice resort. The lobby lacks a bar but the sports bar is right around the corner so i guess that made up for it. The snacks at the sports bar are bad. Really needs a kitchen to make fries/pizzas etc. So we didn't really take advantage of the 24/7 snacks. They make...

Our family of four spent Dec. 24th - 31st at this property (kids are 12 and 16). Overall our experience was very good but I have a few notes/recommendations. We did stay in building 7 with ocean view rooms, but they gave us rooms beside each other but not in the same hallway (with doors facing each other) which would...
