Love this place!

My boyfriend and I stayed here from July 11th - 17th 2015 and it was amazing! To begin I highly recommend booking the airport transfer through this website because it was soooo easy to get out of the airport and into the shuttle and I had heard from so many people that it would be hectic and crazy but for us it was smooth and easy. For the resort I also recommend upgrading to the ocean view room. Our view was AMAZING! infinity pool and then the ocean. The room was very clean the maids did a deep clean every day which was nice. The pools were really fun especially the swim up bar pools. Some people did wake up early to reserve chairs but we went to the pool about noon every day and never had a issue finding chairs they just weren't right at the pools edge which is fine for us. This was my boyfriends first tropical trip and he is already talking about going next time but with a big group of friends! We did go in the ocean the very first day when it was calm and pretty much flat but after that the ocean got very rough (I think a hurricane was somewhere off the coast and we got some of the effects) so unfortunately we didn't get to go on our snorkeling trip but we did get a refund. The food was really good and I loved the Mexican specialty restaurant the most. It was easy to make reservations at the different restaurants and we tried all 4 and also got to do the dinner buffet twice. One thing my boyfriend didn't love was that the only beer was Dos Equis but that's not a big deal he ended up finding other drinks he liked. Overall I would recommend the Riu Santa Fe and would come again!

Do you like a good time?

the Riu Santa Fe was awesome! I just got back from a 5 day/4 Night stay with some friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The facility is incredibly clean, staff was friendly, and the food was good. Loved that it was right on the beach and a 5 minute cab ride into the town. I would absolutely go back!

What's to Love

Riu Santa Fe is a serene resort that is perfect to get away from it all, but it's still close to Cabo San Lucas in case you want to go out and explore.

 

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

For tranquility, unwind at the pool or treat yourself to a massage at the spa. For excitement, there's downtown Cabo San Lucas only minutes away.

Hotel Description

Riu Santa Fe: Indulge in All-Inclusive Fun

If your idea of paradise means laying partially submerged in a lounge chair without a care in the world, then it's time to float yourself down to explore the infinity pool at Riu Santa Fe in Los Cabos. With the convenience of this 24-hour, all-inclusive resort, you are just three miles from downtown Cabo San Lucas where you can take in the right balance of serenity, spectacular vistas and thrilling nightlife.

If that isn't enough, you'll find more ways to pamper yourself at Riu Santa Fe than time to indulge in all of them. Worried about the kids? There are plenty of fun activities like splashing around in the kid's pool, or engaging in Kids Club activities. While the little ones are occupied, head toward the swim-up bar at an adult pool or indulge in the magical warmth of a Jacuzzi. Of course, you can't go wrong with a rejuvenating massage or complimentary steam bath and sauna at Renova Spa.

If you can't tear yourself from the beautiful outdoors, you should enjoy a succulent dinner under the moonlight with sea breezes blowing through your hair because after all, this is paradise. Three of the resort's restaurants offer succulent dishes in outdoor settings. At La Baja California, the main restaurant, you can enjoy the buffet, if you want some Mexican food, check out La Mision. If you have a hankering for a great steak, then Torote is the ticket. For a gourmet treat, try Peking duck at Zashila followed by yummy fried ice cream.

If you're the type who can't sit still when the music begins, then don't miss the excitement at Pacha. Open six nights a week, this charming nightclub will have you moving to a disco beat in no time. If, you'd rather enjoy a laid back evening, the resort also provides excellent live entertainment in each night. As the night winds down, make your way to your guest room, where you'll find the same blend of local warmth and contemporary decor that makes this resort special.

You could stay at Riu Santa Fe a month and not experience everything in Los Cabos! Long before the peninsula boasted world-class golf courses and Cabo San Lucas laid claim to its hip nightlife, fishermen trekked to Los Cabos for the magnificent marlin fishing. Terrific vistas, non-stop fun and quiet spots make this one a winner.
