Had a great time, friendly staff, and consistent. Pools are wonderful and easily accessible to the night life if interested in going out on the town. Wish we would have stayed an extra day.... Good food selection but getting into the Italian or Asian restaurants require waiting in line. We'll go again

Read various reviews before we visited. Some good and some not so good. The food was pretty good. Not fantastic, but, plenty of options. The drinks were fine. The best part of Santa Fe is the staff. Everyone goes out of their way to ensure you have the best of service. They could not have been more gracious. You will...

Paradise location with view of the Arch from our room and pools. Exceptionally clean premises and extra courteous staff. The beachfront pools are a party while the centre pool is quiet and relaxing. You only need to pick what suits you and enjoy! The wide variety of food options and unlimited drinks is fantastic!

The only reason I gave a 2 was because the pool and entertainment team were great. This RIU is the worst I have ever stayed at and I have stayed at about 10 in many other places other than Mexico. Unlike its RIU Palace counterpart the Santa Fe does not take dinner reservations it is "first come first serve". Out...

This was our 4th stay at the RIU Santa Fe. We have not been here since 2015. Most things were exactly the same and as expected; which is why we continue to return. Our biggest disappointment was that we felt the quality of food had decreased. We could always find something to eat, but never walked away from a dinner...

4 out of 5 of us ended up with food poisoning and the fifth suffered from sinus issues due to the awful smell in the room. The staff in the sports bar were the best part. The food in the sports bar was the worst. The Japanese restaurant took out two members and the buffet took out the other two....

For the first time visiting Mexico I found this resort a wonderful place. Upon boarding our bus from the airport we were quickly greeted by staff. The ride was about 35 minutes to the resort. Bus driver was very friendly and had a lot of info to share. We were greeted by a welcoming drink once we arrived at Riu...
