    A beautiful all-inclusive

    Ten of our family recently spent 5 days (Monday-Friday) at the RIU Santa Fe. This is the second "all-inclusive" we stayed at. The first one was a RIU property in Jamaica. The Santa Fe is a beautiful property. We had a garden view room on the second floor of Villa 1. The nice thing about this location is the close proximity to the pools and dining and shops. There wasn't a real wide selection of liquor or beers, but there was plenty for us, and the service was great. There are daylight food vendors sprinkled around the property offering a wide variety of dishes. After checking most of them out, our favorite daylight eatery was the American, located between the buffet and the Italian restaurant. It looks like a retro diner and along with standard burger and fries fare, you can get a rack of barbecued pork ribs that are fantastic. There are beautiful pools in the main area along with a pool bar, but the crown jewel of the resort is the beach area with bars, pools that go right up to the edge of the wall and a spectacular view of the Arch out in the bay. One drawback to the property is because of the bad riptides, no swimming is allowed on the beach. What I did like about it was all the evening restaurants were "first come-first served" with no reservations required. If you are a young person, you will love all the parties. The one thing I didn't like about it is all the eateries, including the nice restaurants are buffet style. My wife and I are senior citizens, and we prefer to be served from a menu, because it limits how much we eat. We just pigged out terrible during our stay. Our room was large and comfortable, with a large walk-in shower (no shampoo), and well stocked with liquor, beer, pop and water. Bed was very comfortable, and the staff was just great. We are cruisers, and the evening shows at the Santa Fe were sub-par to cruise ship shows. Just because cruising is our thing, we probably won't go back to the Santa Fe, but if we were into all-inclusives, the Santa Fe would be our little piece of heaven.
