Disappointing All-inclusive

The room was not very clean. There were bugs in the room. I kept waking up with insect bites. The service was good and the staff were friendly but I would never go back to that resort or any of their other resorts. The food was awful. We spent more time at the marina because the food was so disappointing. I would probably stay closer to their if I ever decide to go back. Also, August is a very hot, humid time to go to Cabo...and everything is located outside.

Bachelorette getaway

The pool, rooms and unlimited alcohol were great! The food was terrible at the buffet and for our three night stay they could only get us into one of the sit down restaurants on the third night (you basically can never get a reservation for the first two nights of your stay). They were unable to accommodate our group with rooms next to each other which we has asked for months in advance and the front desk staff was incredibly rude when we were talked to them about it. Other than that is was a decent choice for a wild bachelorette weekend.

Overall Okay Experience

The hotel overall is okay. There is only 1 building (building 7) that has ocean views. However, this building is at the opposite end of where all nighttime activity takes place. The food isn't bad. There is really nothing to do at the hotel after about 8pm. They close the pools and only have one show going on. It is not a great place for kids under 15 as the ocean has too much undertow to swim outside the hotel. If you are going to stay at this hotel, then make sure you plan on going into town and doing lots of excursions. The travel company representative at the hotel was fantastic and his excursion recommendations made the trip!

Walk to the Marina. You can jet ski, parasail, and sit on a calm beach with great food and drinks.

Great family hotel

Riu Santa Fe is a great hotel - very clean, two big pools, fun staff and good food. This is a BIG hotel. We stayed in building 7 and had an ocean view, which was amazing. However the walk to and from the main dining room was long. Also, Because of the size there were A LOT of people all the time. You will need to make your dining reservations well in advance or you will be eating at the main buffet each night. The buffet food was pretty good with lots of options. However, by day 3 I was ready for something different. The one big bummer for us was not being able to swim in the ocean out in front of the Santa Fe. I should have researched better - my fault not the hotels ;). You can walk about 10-15 minutes down and swim I the ocean. Overall a great experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk down to the pink hotel (Bonito Rose) and go for a swim in the ocean! Also, have lunch at Tobascos. Great restaurant right on the beach and the staff is fun and friendly.

The worst staff & management & customer service ever!!

I can't believe that there is such a service like that..The worst staff & management & customer service ever!!, they wanted to rip us off, we were a group of friends but each of us booked seperatley, we met at the hotel, we took 4 different rooms, and before our trip ends with two days, they started ruining our vacation
