We chose the Riu Santa Fe as a company holiday destination taking 26 people to this all inclusive. The hotel was beautiful but really noisy and impossible to sleep. The food was good, have had better but they didn't take reservations, instead we had to get a buzzer and wait sometimes over an hour for a table. This made it...

The all inclusive nature of this resort sells itself. I also loved how close the hotel is to downtown Cabo San Lucas, just a $15 taxi ride. Staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. Only bad is the food at the buffets is very hit or miss. Sometimes delicious and sometimes really bad. Overall I would come back...

Check in was smooth and our room overlooked the pool and ocean which was a great surprise. We got to see the NYE Medano Beach firework show from our balcony. The room itself was average and the food was below average with the exception of the NYE buffett. There wasn't much to choose from at the buffets and the a...

We were there with my family during the holidays with two more families. Overall the service and the management were not that helpful. The rooms were clean but we had to switch two rooms because they paint the rooms to keep it clean but then the smell of paint. Food was mediocre. Over all rating of food is 3. Pool...

We had 18 family members staying here from December 26-January 2. The resort was well kept with AMAZING staff. However, we think management could work on a few things; the resort was super busy with the holiday season and they were understaffed. The staff who were on, worked SO hard to try and keep up, especially in the main restaurants....

Booked here on the recommendation of travel agent and accompanying pictures. Turns out the pictures are from the hotel in front (on the beach) which as a guest of Santa Fe you are barred from accessing. Hotel dated with threadbare linen and pillows that have seen better days. Worse filled with drunken young people who shout throughout the night in...

So many good things about this resort!! We loved Building 7. It is right off the infinity pool so it can be noisy, but you can shut your door to drown out the noise and the views are unbelievable. Dinners were delish, buffets were good, breakfast buffets were great! Like others have said, there were some food or drinks that...
