Not the best Riu

I chose this resort because a friend had stayed at a Riu in Cancun and loved it. The room smelled like mold. The beds were soooo hard. The noise in the hallways echoed at all hours. We weren’t allowed to visit the adjoining Riu resorts, but if we were staying at one of the adjoining resorts we could have access to Riu Santa Fe. Sushi wasn’t fresh. The medium rare steak was well well done. The hostess for the steak restaurant told us 30 people were ahead of us on the waiting list, not true, wanted us to tip her to be seated. Housekeeping never restocked my room, I didn’t have coffee after the first day. Long and painful vacation.

Terrible service!!!

First off, I want to say that the beach view is incredible! The service is absolutely terrible! Some of the staff is nice but most of the staff is rude. The supervisor was extremely rude to me when I asked her for 2 shampoos. I had to go to the front desk to ask for 2 shampoos and the front desk was extremely rude as well. Not only did they give me attitude but wouldn’t let me speak with the manager. I can not believe the way they spoke to me! I travel frequently but this was beyond the worst service I have ever experienced. If anything in the room needs to be fixed expect to eat a few hours for someone to actually come in. We kept having issues with our safe box and literally had to wait several hours for someone to actual fix the issue. I would not recommend this resort to anyone unless they get better staff and their service improves! The best customer service we had was from Oscar from the Baja California restaurant! He’s a very friendly and genuine guy! SHAME on the people at the FRONT DESK!! The front desk people are extremely rude and unprofessional!!!

Riu Santa Fe, Cabo

The weather was gorgeous and the food was good! We had numerous issues with our rooms, including a very hard and uncomfortable bed, broken liquor cabinet with almost empty bottles, a toilet that wouldn't flush, and the air conditioning was on the fritz! I do have to say, when I called to complain about everything (except the bed) they were very quick to respond and fixed everything! The staff seem tired and overworked, although they tried very hard to be pleasant! Over all, we had a fabulous time! I have always used Riu in the past for my vacation desinations and I most likely will use them again, just not this one.

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.
Following the addition of 288 new rooms to the hotel and a water park, RIU Santa Fe is introducing their new Riu Pool Party concept.
