Hurricane Newton

Bad timing. We went to Riu Santa Fe for 3 days during Hurricane Newton's visit. As a result most all water activities were cancelled. The resort suffered some minor damage and tried to recover as best as it could. All restaurants were closed until noon the morning after the storm. I thought that management could have done a better job of communicating what was going on and their plans for restoring services to normal.

nice but not nice

We arrived in Cabo at the Riu Santa fe September 4th. The 5th hurricane Newton arrived at 11.00pm -5am. For a hotel change that must go through these storms all the time they have very poor communications process. The strom hit and your in a separate building a half a mile away from the lobby. The phones,TV and cell service are all down with no emergency plan in place. The next morning storm has cleared we walked to the lobby where they told us theyre would be no food service all day just hotdogs in the sports bar. The next day we were limited to 1 restaurant. If you can picture 2500 to 3500 people all wanting food trying to get it in one small place all day long breakfast,lunch,and dinner.I think $200.00 a day for the hotel was a little much for Hotdogs and overstuffed accomidations. Please help reconfirm my confidence in this process as we enjoy traveling we you company a particle refund or credit for our next trip would be appreciated.

Be Careful

Hurricane Newton hit Cabo the 2nd day we were there. I understand you cant plan for these things. The lack of communication between the resort and the people staying there was the problem. With no TV no phones or cell service we all were in the dark and power failure at 10.00pm . A notice was slipped under our door saying breakfast wouldn't be served again for a while understandable. The next day and night no food service at all just hotdogs and chips and one small bar to try to get into with the other 3000 people needing food. After food service restored completely on Wed. our trip was over. Help restore my confidence in Cheap Caribbean and Mexico with a future discounted trip and/or a credit. I did not buy the insurance but I believe $200.00 a day for hotdogs on two of the 4 days is not fair

What's to Love

All-inclusive everything: the cocktails, the grub, the utter awesomeness of it all.

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

Reservations at the restaurants can be hard to get at the last minute. Ask about the schedule at check-in, then book your reservations early, so you'll have nothing to worry about.

 

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.
