10 day Cabo Easter

Have been to Mexico 7 times previous, never at a RIU hotel before but have to say this hotel rates right up with the best we have stayed at. Staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and timely upkept and the fridge and bar always full. The pool and grounds are amazing. Food at the buffet was really good. They served 6 or 7 different species of fish, not to mention all the shrimp, callamari & octopus. We tried out two of their theme restaurants but on both occasions wished we had gone to the buffet. The nightly entertainment they put on was fun and enjoyable but repeated after the 7th day we were there. The surf at the beach was crazy at times but my 11 yr. old daughter swam off the resort beach 5 different days, although last day there we had wicked cool 20-25 ft. waves pounding the beach. If you have kids or you are older you may want to avoid staying or using the pool in Sec. 7 on the beach as that is where all the young "adults" like to party and stay. The pool and hottubs in that area were pretty scary looking in the mornings before crews got ot them........ A wee tip for first timers to all inclusive hotels, always ask for brand name liquor at the bars if you don't you may get some pretty scary substitutes.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't bother with the taxi's at the hotel, a 5 min. walk will get you on the bus that will get you into town in 10 mins. and only costs one dollar ! A Walmart is only a 15-20 min. walk away from the resort.

Bachelor party, group was split up

Everything was fine. Except my brother got escorted off the property before check in was completed. There was a misunderstanding with management and they escorted him and a friend off the property. Trip was prepaid. My brother and friend had to stay at another hotel and 10 of us planned to stay together.

Perfection

Came to this place for a bachelor party. As soon as I walked into my room I knew we picked the right location. The fridge was stocked with waters and beers. Above the fridge were four bottles of hard alcohol. All this at no extra cost. They even refill everything the next day if you drink enough of it. Cab ride to downtown was only $15 total. So cheap. 20 minute walk to downtown along the beach as well. If you are looking to have fun this is the place to go! (and El Squid Roe at night) Also, make sure to find Delfino. He will be a huge help in making your trip that much more enjoyable. Best server I have ever had.

Good hotel and location but very poor food

Overall the trip was a huge success but would not consider returning to the Rui Sante Fe due to the poor food unless the price for the trip was such that one could not pass up the opportunity.

Worthless

This place is old and uncomfortable, here is list 1,location is far from down town 2, beach is useless, also ocean in front of the hotel has rock that means there is no activity around this hotel's beach that means you have to walk for a mile in hot sand or get the cab 3, this place is old and even door doesn't open with Card and you need to keep your key with you at the all time and if you lose them they charge you, 4, every thing in the room is old including all the sheets that have hole in them or towel that scratch you body, 5, no internet connection in rooms unless you pay and only 90 minutes per day if it get connected (didn't work for 5 days I was there and none of the staff could help) 6, I understand all inclusive means cheap booze but what they serve people was poison (I have stayed other all inclusive places) 7, Quality of food was super bad even in their fancy steak house there were no real steak just piece a meat with a lot of fat around it, sizzler got better steak than this and their buffet sucks even more, they serve you same food day after day until was finish never do fresh food, 7, pool were dirty and you can smell vomit, urine and all kind of smell from that stupid nasty water 8, place was full of irresponsible who were yelling and screaming all night and hotel management didn't do anything about it, TOTALY USELESS MANAGMENT
