Great deal for the Price

The resort was huge, the rooms were spacy and clean, when we first got there- the rooms smelled I little musty. We opened the balcony doors and it aired out. The staff was friendly. One of my family members got violently sick at one of the specialty dinning (Japanese). The rest of the group did not, we are not sure what she eat from their buffet table; we had the same main dish. In the main dinning area,the buffet style meals didn't have much flavor, yet, the other restaurants overall had delicious meals. The drinks are watered down. You want this!!!! otherwise you will be more dehydrated, and hung over. They stocked the room with alcohol, free sodas, beer, and water. We didn't have any problems finding pool chairs to sunbathe. It was my husbands Birthday.. we celebrated his day with the "White Party"... IT WAS AWESOME!! great music.....people behaved/not rowdy... . Good time!!

Nice resort

I enjoyed my stay at the resort and the friendliness of the staff. My concern is that the sidewalk is not marked for people to see it has a handicap access. I was walking down the sidewalk when I rolled my ankle, causing a fracture of my ankle. The people who work there with the excersion companies were there to assist me right away. I dont recall anyone from RIU to help. I saw the doctor on staff that cost me $336 and was misdiagnosed. Needless to say, this trip cost me much more than anticipated and now I have ongoing medical expenses here in the states.

This makes my 5th time here at the Riu Santa Fe

This is my 5th time here. I bring many people with me as well. Super easy pick up at airport. Super easy check in . Everything you can need is supplied or available at this resort. Food is all good except for the stuff at the Sports Bar ... thats only good when you are coming in at 4am and need to eat ANYTHING to sober up .. but if you go back in daytime you wonder why you ate it .. LOL .. but other than that we really enjoy this resort .. one piece of advice if you go there and fish .. they DO NOT have a freezer to keep your fish in if you catch any ...

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.

We know you're ready to escape the everyday and head to Cabo's sunny shores. Can't you just picture your day lounging by that big, bright blue pool? Good news - there is a swim-up bar for convenient cocktail-loading. Ah, day drinking just got a little more lively. Of course, Riu goes all out with unlimited food and drink, entertainment day and night, everything you want, and tops it off with a stress-smashing spa. But wait, it gets better. This little resort-gem is located close to Cabo's restaurants, bars, nightlife and shopping. And it's all waiting for you.

It's Time to Get Your Riu On.
