We were very well looked after all week. Clean and spotless rooms(no musky smell), beautifully landscaped grounds, excellent food, stunning view, and very courteous and helpful staff. This resort is rated as a 4-4.5, It definitely is at least a 5! Hats off to the management and all staff of the Riu Santa Fe.

This was our first time in Los Cabos and being Riu repeats, we decided to stay at the Sante Fe. Despite some negative reviews, we always find the Riu's good. The check in was smooth. We were in Building 1 so it was quiet and we were near the quiet pool which was excellent. The food was excellent and varied....

This property is big but so are lots of other hotels. Check in was super smooth and a bell helped us to our room. We had a ocean view room in building 7. View was great. Very pretty. Room was very clean and we tipped our maid everyday and we had a new towel animal everyday! Had lots of cold...

We spent 7 days at the hotel. Room service was excellent. Landscaping reflected the desert theme beautifully, was well maintained with a large staff keeping the grounds always spotless. There was a surprising number of smokers outside. Our favorite restaurant was the buffet, the main entrees were changed every day. There was so much food that we were never able...

We took our employees and their spouses (group of 24) here for a 5 day get-away Jan 12-16. It was perfect! Only my husband and I had ever been to an AI before and this was a great place for this group to come. Very friendly, not too formal, but not "Spring Break" atmosphere either. Because there were a number...

My partner and I stayed for a week at the Riu Santa Fe in Cabo San Lucas. Our stay was wonderful! The weather was sunny and hot every day with not a single cloud in the sky. It did get a little cool at night time, but it's a desert so it was expected. The resort was very clean and...

Here are the positives first: The resort itself is very beautiful, I didn't find it run down at all. The view by the pool with the ocean view is absolutely breath taking. Lover's beach is well worth the water taxi over, although the water is very cold to swim in. If you are young and looking for a place to...

The resort its beautiful as are the rooms and the location. The pools, especially the infinity one by the ocean, are amazing. There was lots going on with a wide variety of activities. 2 swim up bars. The ocean is beautiful but the rip tides meant that most days you could not swim in it. It was amazing to see...

Overall it was a great trip. It was my daughter's b-day on the day we arrived and I had arranged dinner reservations with the help of Karina (who was wonderful and very helpful!) however, we landed a bit late and just barely made it to have dinner. We had an awesome room in building 11, right in the center of...

This was my first ever beach holiday out of the country and it was amazing. We travelled in November of 2012 and on our arrival to the resort we never had to check in. Everything was handed to us prior to arriving. The rooms were clean and very nice. It was a little confusing to find our room as there...
