“Staff stealing from rooms”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

Like many other travellers on here, we also had money stolen from our safe in the room. Another girl in our group had the same thing happen as well. They don't steal all of your money though - just a percentage in hopes that you don't notice it missing. I lost a couple hundred and the other girl had about $350 stolen. We were in the 3000 building if anyone else had the same problems in the week of April 28 - May 05.

It seemed like the cleaning staff had a pretty good system with something on point while another steals your stuff.

Stayed May 2012, travelled with friends

This place was the epitome of fun. I will warn you though...this is a party resort. BIG TIME. Lots of youngsters having fun. This was my second time back, went with my best friend and had a blast. Food was great, the service was amazing, the staff...always pleasant and accommodating. And man oh man are they ever clean! You put your empty glass down...its gone within seconds. The only thing I got to warn you about is the beach. The water is pretty rough down there. My friend dislocated her shoulder attempting to swim in the water. Don't get me wrong...it's a ton of fun...but you HAVE to be a strong swimmer...and a little bit of a daredevil. ZERO complaints. None whatsoever. Just be warned...if your looking for peace and quiet...keep looking. This place is a constant party. AWESOME!!!!!! Already planning Riu trip #3

Room Tip: Building 7 is close to the beach and pools. We were in building 7 and had the most incredible view...

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Riu Santa Fe. The food was very good and property was very well maintained. I'd recommend the Santa Fe as a very good all-inclusive resort. We really enjoyed lour time there.

Me and my two girlfriends stayed at this resort for one of our 21st Birthdays and we couldn't be happier! The resort was very nice, exceptionally clean and very well maintained. There were always people cleaning and making sure it was perfect. The food was good, not the greatest but we were not expecting 5 course meals. Compared to previous resorts we've stayed at the theme restaurants were not the best so we mainly ate at the Baja California Buffet. The Staff was amazing, always making sure we were taken care of and were very polite and fun. Rooms come stocked with your own liquor and plenty of large water bottles which are very necessary. Bring your own travel cups or mugs to fill up during the day at the pool. Its nice to have a cup a little bigger then what they provide drinks in. Also keeps your drinks from melting within minutes. This is definitely a party resort, lots of people ages 20-35, lots of drinking but the best time any of us have ever had and we owe a lot of it to the resort. If you're planning on booking the al a carte restaurants make sure to go down early in the morning because they fill up very fast, our favourite was the Italian. The shows at night were awesome, the entertainment staff was fantastic and had our cheeks hurting from smiling and laughing so much. In our opinion people who have anything bad to say about this resort are looking for something to complain about, we will 100% return next year and always recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: If you're on vacation to party ask to stay in building 7, you won't need to worrying about b...

Food was very good despite the reviews we read. The steakhouse was awesome and Mexican was also satisfying. I enjoyed almost all the drinks served and service was fantastic! Definitely a resort for you if you are in your 20's. Pools were clean as was the rest of the resort and yards were very well maintained. Never got sick once and would recommend EVERYONE takes a taxi to El Gordolele for an amazing Mexican taco or sandwich. Overall all 5 of the people who traveled Loved the trip.

Room Tip: Watch out for getting 2 beds if you are a couple as single occupancy seems to get the king size bed...
