Customer serivce needs a lot of work

I would not recommend this resort. First of all the manager is terrible and demanding. We booked our vacation 3 months in advance, and about a month before, we added a friend into our room. We had all documentation that the 3rd person was paid for, BUT the manager wanted to verify with the sales department that it was indeed correct. He demanded that the only way possible was to keep the passport at the front desk to be verified. Even after showing him and emailing him our reservation. obviously, we didn't leave our passport with him, finally after 1 and a half hour at the check in counter he tells us the other option is to charge a credit card, and once verified he will refund it. At this point we said screw it, charge the card because we are not going to give him our passport. After the 2nd day, he refunded the money, and did not apologize. We booked 2 rooms for 6 people, with 2 queen size bed. BUT of course we got 2 rooms 2 king size beds. We were tired and exhausted from traveling all morning, so we didn't fight it. The resort, food is ok, but the dining is terrible. You cannot make reservations in advance. You have to show up at 6:30 every night at the desire restaurant and make the reservation then. We were to busy to set an alarm everyday to make reservation. All said and done.. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

Great Time with Great Friends

The money spent on Riu Santa Fe was well worth it. The restaurants were spectacular, the pools were a blast, and the overall environment was relaxing at times, and crazy fun at others. I recommend this resort to anyone needing a vacation. The Taco Truck in the middle of the resort was probably the most clutch thing ever. Like i said, the restaurants were fantastic and the staff at each of them were very catering to the needs of my wife and I. I didn't get to the in room mini-bar too often, but i did drink the DosXX they provided. Plenty of excursions very competitively priced. Great time, and i would definitely go back!

Bae-cation

I enjoyed my stay at this all inclusive resort. The room has AC and dark curtains for sleeping in during the early morning hot sunrise. The food was buffet style for breakfast and lunch and dinner at the dining hall area but dinner could be at a different location at the resort if you place your name on the waiting list when we wait in line at 530pm. We waited in line and could only make a reservation for the steak house at 845pm so it's important to get there with enough time to pick your desired reservation slot. The beach had people selling everything from hoarse rides to braiding your hair. Never buy trips or sail boat adventures from people on the beach, they take your money and don't show up when it's time for the trip you paid for. I loved using this company because there was a sister company that offered us activities to do at a cheap price, pay for 2 and go to 3 adventures. The humidity was cray but deff and unforgettable experince. I will always remember Cabo adventures from our zip lining Black team that hiked through jungle and made it back through the rain alive to tell the tale.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Cabo's breath-stealing views from the patio of the resort that are picture-worthy.

Mojitos are legendary and de-lish. Order up as many as you want.

RiuFit is ready to buff you up. Weights. Cardio. Stretching. Catch it every morning & afternoon.

The impressive nightly entertainment. Especially fun for the little ones.

RiuLand, where the kiddos can play & craft the day away while you melt into stress extraction at the spa.

Dipping into the Jacuzzi for bubbly relaxation. (Plus always a fun mingling spot.)

 

What We'd Change

You can't swim in the ocean, but the views from the pools, the sunsets and sunrises and walks a long the beach are stunning.

 

Why You Should Go

It's close to the heart of Cabo San Lucas' shopping, nosh & drinking spots and the marina.

Whale watching here is epic. Best time to see these awe-inspiring creatures - mid-Dec thru mid-April.

Cabo's famous "El Arco" is in the backdrop. Grab your camera and snap, snap away.

You can dance your heart out at Pacha nightclub. Put on your disco shoes and get to it.

Invigorating crowds keep the party going at the pool, around the resort and at night.
