We traveled with a large group (40+) for MLK Weekend 2017. Overall, it was a nice time. The views from various hotel locations were awesome and they made for great pictures. It's your average all-inclusive resort. Stay in Building Seven. Some of my friends stayed elsewhere on the resort and had substandard experiences. So, again Building 7 seems to be...

I will never stay at a Riu property again. This has to be the worst all inclusive resort we have ever stayed at. Rooms are very outdated with absolutely no amenities. The bedspreads were stained & dingy. The sheets felt like sand paper & the pillows were like cotton balls. The food was terrible in the buffets & there was...

Stayed for 1 week (booked as a last minute get away). When arrived at room (originally bldg 3) had to ask to be relocated to a room that had two double beds (this was requested when booking trip). After a lengthy delay and a trip back to the lobby to resolve we received the correct room type (in bldg 2)....

Read the reviews before going, and was hesitant but discovered a beautiful resort. Food was very good, lots of choice. Pools and beach, especially the view was great. Clean and spacious room (building 7). The staff was friendly. The resort is big, so expect lots of walking. The weather in january is sunny and hot during day but cool in...

I wasn't sure about going back to another "all-inclusive" resort as my last experience at one left me longing for better service and better quality food/drinks overall... BUT... This resort truly turned my opinion around as Riu Sante Fe went all out to make sure each and every guest was pampered! From Welcome Drinks upon arrival to our final shuttle...

This hotel is great, with exceptional staff members that made the trip memorable. Not many staff members to name but I remember one who stood out among the rest. Rogelio at the front desk/concierge did an amazing job welcoming our stay and making connections with us. The purpose of my trip was a romantic getaway for my birthday and out...

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.
