Unbelievable

Let me start off by saying that the pictures don’t do this resort justice. The resort and pools are beautiful and I was extremely satisfied. You’re getting more than your monies worth when staying at Riu Santa Fe. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and won’t let you life a finger. You’re truly on vacation and treated like royalty. The food options are amazing and there is lots of variety. The number of pools and space to lay by them it’s incredible. All the bars, especially the swim up bars, are quick and easy to get drinks at. Strong drinks at that. The entertainment by the pool and the shows at night are well worth checking out to be in awe. Already planning our trip back here!!

Great resort for a great value

I first stayed at the Riu Santa Fe in Dec 2013 for week over Christmas and great time. Although in 2013 the resort and my stay was decent. The food was just OK and the alcohol was no name cheap stuff. On this trip though, April 2018, the resort has really picked up its game. The food quality and options have improved in all the on site restaurants, the evening Taco Stand is by far amazing. The alcohol they serve also has gotten better. I was served name brand tequilas and whiskeys at ever bar (Jose, el Jimador, Red Label, Jack). The rooms were clean and the beds were 2 full beds put together, so talk about a super huge comfy bed. I can't say there was anything I disliked on this trip, except the coffee, the coffee was absolutely disgusting. As for location, it was nice the resort is close enough to downtown that you can walk down the beach to Mango Deck and The Office for drinks / food OR you can take a taxi and its only a few bucks per person. We got a great deal this time and if I ever find a deal that good, I'll definitely come back to the Riu Santa Fe.

Fair purchase

The buffet food is exactly that. We didn’t care too much for the food but they have other dining options available. We stayed in building seven and the hotel next door is doing construction. So expect to be woken up every morning at 7:30 sharp. The staff is extremely friendly and they make sure that guest not staying on the premises are not allowed. The bartenders are great and we would definitely stay at this hotel again just not near construction. The pools are all great but they beach was terrible. Can not swim in front of the hotel!!!!

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?
