Check-in and Check-out process was super easy. Friendly staff, clean rooms, stocked mini-bar. WiFi had no issues. Plenty of seating at the pool. Active night life on property. No problems!
The food wasn't anything special but that's to be expected with all-inclusive buffets. The Pool Parties are loud, no matter where you are, you can hear it. No elevators in the buildings, you'll get a workout.
Great facilities. Very clean and well maintained.
Food was not good. I wouldn’t return because of the food. I felt like i was in a high school cafeteria.
the staff was super friendly and helpful
The food was americanized and not authentic mexican tasting. The communication about event times and when food places would be open wasn't effective and the brochure missed vital information.
It's family oriented staff is very helpful rooms are great close to downtown had a great time on all the tours we took
Nothing great hotel
All inclusive and location
Hotel Riu Santa Fe is a five-star establishment located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. While it is very popular with couples and single adults, there are plenty of activities and resources for memorable family vacations. There are over 1,000 air-conditioned rooms to choose from, some of which offer an ocean view and a terrace. All rooms have a minibar and drink dispensers, as well as numerous other amenities such as free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV, and private bathrooms. The staff at the 24-hour front desk speaks both Spanish and English fluently.
A continental breakfast is served every morning and there are several restaurants on premises, such as La Baja California, El Medano and Torote that serve both breakfast and dinner. Asian, Italian, and Mexican cuisine are all available choices for a tasty dinner after a day of fun in the sun.
Guests can spend the day in one of the seven available swimming pools, some of which offer swim-up bars and hydro-massage areas. Kids can enjoy the children’s pool with slides or the Splash Water World Waterpark. The hotel's staff can help guests go off-site and enjoy snorkeling, diving, golf, or horseback riding. There is also nightly live music or performances and an adults-only pool party conducted by Riu’s entertainment staff.
With a private beach less than a one minute walk away, most guests choose to stay on the premises. However, for those that would like to explore the area, Cabo San Lucas Country Club, Lovers Beach and El Arco are all within about a mile and The Los Cabos Corridor and El Dorado Golf course are about 10 miles away. Medano Beach, famous for its soft white sand and calm warm waters, is also very close to Hotel Riu Santa Fe.
