All 902 rooms further the luxury, with heavy wood furniture, stately columns and balconies or terraces overlooking the sea or grounds. A full roster of recreational activities covers tennis courts, introductory scuba lessons, nightly entertainment and supervised activities for the kids.
Highlights
  • Two pools, three poolside bars and a swim-up bar
  • Renova Spa offering massages, facials and beauty services
  • RiuLand kids club
  • Multiple restaurants
  • Free gym, sauna, steam bath and Jacuzzi
Rooms
RIU Santa Fe All Inclusive relies on heavy wood furniture, crown moldings and pillars to create an elegant look in all 902 rooms. Accents reflect a traditional sensibility, including tasseled curtains, oversized area rugs in neutral colors and shaded lamps. Guests might request a room with a sea view or a suite equipped with a sunken living area and bathroom hydro-massage bathtub, shower cabin and bidet. Jacuzzi suites sport a tub on the upper terrace. Standard amenities cover central air, a liquor dispenser, laptop-sized safe and balcony or terrace.
Dining
The all-inclusive option invites guests to sample the many restaurants at RIU Santa Fe All Inclusive, a collection of on-the-spot cooking stations, buffets and a la carte eateries that span global tastes.
Recreation

Active travelers encounter a full roster of diversions at RIU Santa Fe All Inclusive. Take an introductory scuba lesson in the pool, play volleyball or challenge a fellow visitor to a match on the two tennis courts. Off site, guests explore the local past times, from scuba diving to horseback riding.

 

And just for kids ages 4 to 7 and 8 to 12: RiuLand, which hosts supervised activities to keep tykes entertained while their parents head to the spa or lounge by the two pools.

RIU Santa Fe

This was the best all inclusive that I have stayed at. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and grounds and decent food with many options for picky eaters. Location is not bad and short taxi ride into San Lucas about $10usd one way. Here are a few tips, if you plan to use the pool by the beach get up early (7am)and place your towel or bag or whatever to claim your spot or spots. If you don't you may not get a spot if the hotel is crowded. The other option is to use the pool closer to the plaza/lobby area which is quieter and noticably less crowded. Also if you are wanting to go to one of the specialty restraunts, again rise early go to the lobby area and get in line to get a reservation or you can plan to eat at the nightly buffet which I thought was quite good. Tennis courts are nice but also must be reserved on the day you want to use them, best time seemed to be around sunset when everyone else was getting ready to go out or eat or were to drunk from sampling all inclusive drinks by the pool or beach all day. Some of the downsides to this hotel were, weak internet coverage which is only accessable in the lobby area. for those that use skype to call home it reall y does not work all that welland most calls were broken and delayed because of poor internet signal. If you plan to use your cellphone down there be prepared for a nice shock when you get your bill after returning home. If you use it alot you might not be able to go on vacation the next year. Most plans for Mexico cost .99c a min for phone talk and .50c for each text in and out. The hotel does have computers for use of the internet in the 24hr sports bar but there is a charge to use them. This hotel can be somewhat noisy at times especially in the wee hours when guests whom have been partying in San Lucas return and can be unusually loud and obnoxius, the walls are pretty thin so unless you are an extremely heavy sleeper be prepared to be awaken at one time or another. I guess if you can't beat them you can join them. Another cost is if you are not renting a car from Los Cabos airport when you arrive be prepared for a hefty cab ride to the RIU about $75-100 usd one way and tell the driver to take the toll road and you will pay the roughly $2 us for passage on that road, this will save you time and drive should take about 1/2 hour instead of 45-50 mins if not using the toll road. All in all this was a nice and fun place to stay and I would stay there again if in Cabo. I just spent 8 days at this resort and I travel for a living as a pilot. I hope these tips help you enjoy your vacation.

Good Value for the $$

Grounds and pool are Great, Food about average, but not bad. Great location to be close to town yet away enough to relax.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

visit cabo wabo, but be careful taking the water taxi, it drops you off back at the hotel in about 4 feet of water so be prepared to get wet. Cabs are best option only $10 per load so bring friends
