 Not for Everyone

This is our letter to the hotel:
We just returned from your hotel in Cabo San Lucas, and have a few comments for your management to consider.
The hotel itself was clean and well attended, and staff were friendly and pleasant
However.....
The food offered was not outstanding, and I would say somewhat mediocre. Your 'reservations required' restaurants did not have the ambience we thought would be a part of the setting. We felt rushed at your Italian restaurant. The buffet in your Asian restaurant was a surprise as we were expecting waiter service. This would have been fine if we had previous notice. We could easily have gone to La Baja California in that case.

Because your hotel has numerous buildings, a golf cart system or some type of transit might be provided for people with mobility problems. We did meet a woman who was in bldg 7 (furthest away) and had a knee problem, and was unable to get about unless she waited for someone to bring a wheelchair. I do realize of course that the hotel is really a 'party hotel' and not suited to those over perhaps 35 years.

There were areas for smoking but smoking seemed to be everywhere!

Movement of food and other hotel items on trolleys could be less noisy if the wheels were a heavier rubber, as in the restaurants in particular, the noise was loud while you were trying to have a meal.

The WiFi system also left a lot to be desired, as one was constantly having to log in multiple times while using your free 90 minute system.

Thought you might like some feedback to better improve the general experience.

We probably would not return to your hotel due to the above issues, but enjoyed our time away from the cold and rain.

 Cabo San Lucas - Rio Sante Fe

Great hotel for the money, although a little larger than we are used to. We were one of the first guests since reopening after the hurricane and so the hotel was no where near capacity. We were able to easily book a la carte restaurants through the concierge in building seven where our room was located. Our favourites were the Italian and Asian. Bar service and restaurant service was always prompt and courteous. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We would certainly return to this hotel if visiting Cabo in future.

 Love the santa fe

We had an awesome time. Loved the resort. Can't swim in the ocean in front of the resort because of strong under tow but you can walk down the beach and swim. We had a choice of 2 beautiful poolsa quieter one or the party pool. Lots of activities in the party pool. Great shows in the evening . Only a $14.00 US cab ride into Cobos. The town has lots to do there. Bars, restaurants, and shopping. The rooms were great and the fridge is restocked.the buffets had alot of variety, the staff very friendly. I would definitely go back. We loved the place.

 Nice Grounds but Never again.

The best thing about this hotel was that the grounds were beautiful. It is a stunning resort. Very Large, lots of room for everyone. Tons of gardening staff always trimming and keeping everything tidy. The rooms are nice - Ours was anyhow, we were in Building 6, not ocean view but lovely. Nice bed, fully stocked bar, GREAT cleaning staff. Very disappointed that there were no amenities in the room, you would think they could at least give you a tiny hand lotion OR a shampoo/conditioner. But no there was only 1 tiny soap.

THE FOOD: The buffet food was the worse I've had at a resort. Breakfast was alright but not good everything looked like terrible leftovers from the dinner the night before. Main Buffet was not open for lunch (you had to eat at a pool buffet)there were 2 to choose from, again not great. Dinner was awful, very little meat and always the same offerings. We did make reservations at the restaurants good thing too because these were the only place to have a decent dinner. We were able to eat at the Steakhouse, Mexican & Asian. The food was good there. The only other option was having the hotdogs at the sports bar. Not my first choice but they were alright.

THE STAFF: Staff were in short supply - we thought maybe it was off season. There was no service anywhere, you had to get all of your own drink, at the pool, the show stage, anywhere. It is not really my idea of "All Inclusive" when there are no servers at all. This is the first time I have ever had no service. Very disappointing. This fact alone would make me never go back there.

We did try to upgrade to the Palace the next day and the staff gave us the run around for three days as they wanted us to book tours with them first. they they would see about moving us. I think this was more the vacation provider staff and not the Riu Staff. We did walk over to the Palace and the staff there was more than happy to help but we could not get anything over at the Santa Fe. This was frustrating.

We have stayed at many all inclusive destinations and this was the worst service we have ever encountered. There is no way this is a 4.5 star hotel, 3 at best.

This resort is wonderful. Rooms and all facilities are immaculate. Staff is absolutely outstanding. The food in the buffets was exceptionally good, but the mains in the restaurants were uneven. Also, the booking for the restaurants is a pain (book at 8 or so in the morning and only for 2 nights at a time)

 Loved our vacation

The Riu Santa Fe is a absolutely gorgeous place to stay. The grounds were meticulous and of course the weather was perfect & warm. And that was an issue because the A/C in or building (and a few others as well) went on the fritz on day 2 and our room got very warm. Thank goodness there was an evening breeze & we opened up our patio doors to get some air flowing. Along with the ceiling fan on at hight we were able to sleep.

 Almost a great holiday

First of all, the staff was fab, service exc., food was very good, variety..all top drawer, as you would expect. My one negative? I am a Riu class member, I opt for Riu's when I have a choice, and always used to getting ocean view, or at least partial view, upper floor etc. This hotel shows in there pices the property next door, the palace, which is 90% ocean front. The only building in Sante Fe facing ocean is bldg 7. If you are in 2,3,4,5 etc, you face the pool,which is granted, quite nice, but you could get the open lot behind. If I went back,I'd go up a Jr Suite, and/or guaranteed Bldg 7, or just go to the Palace if similar price after upgrade.Granted this year is a bad year to expect anything other than what you pay for, they were dead full, we couldn't extend our stay either, no rooms, so they have you in wherever they want. But overall, its a very good resort all-in. Riu's always are.

 Great Resort but.....

we had a great time here for the first week then the spring breakers showed up from Michigan they are rude arrogant and can't grasp a simple concept of a lineup they but in front at the buffets and the bars.they get drunk to the point they are puking in the pools and on pathways. They tried to start fights with other guests and use language that should not be used in front if children I will not be going here at this time of year again. I think the travel agents should be warning people of this when they book

 Overall experience

Very good but the hotel could have new satellite TVs in the rooms rather than the old style TV sets.A lot of Canadian customers would like to stay informed about what is happening back home, CBC and TNN would be nice.They could have elevators for the upper floors as well due to some older people with leg and back problems.

The RIU Santa Fe is a huge complex 904 rooms spread over many acres, manicured grounds, large well kept rooms, very friendly staff, top shelf booze and wonderful food the buffet resturants are better than the specialty resturants.....my only issue is the walking (no rides available) between the beach and the main buildings and square

 Best trip yet! Fantastic time.

It was my first stay at a Riu chain, and won't be my last!

The flight was good and on time. Check in at the hotel was fast and easy, plus they put a cold drink in your hand right away. In the front lobby they also have free wifi for 90 min a day(it is very slow though), you can buy better wifi if you wish.

Our room was spacious, with comfortable beds(but who really notices the beds when you pass out after lots of Bahama Mamas in the sun). Bathroom was clean, with lots of room for our stuff. Our view off the balcony was of the Riu Palace next door, so it wasn't the best, but for the amount of time you spend in your room, why complain about a view!!
I had read somewhere building 7 has the best location and views, and I did go check that building out. Its right by a pool, buffet, ocean, etc..so definitely try to request building 7!!

There is plenty of pools and swim up bars on this resort. On our trip, we spotted a pool that seemed to be consumed by more young people vs old people, with a more lively atmosphere, so we made that one our favorite. It had a beautiful millennium pool effect overlooking the ocean!

The food at the buffets(there are 2) had a wide variety, and just like on all resorts, some was just alright, others was great. Highly recommend the pasta!! Breakfast buffet was always really good as well.
We ate at all a la carte's except the steakhouse. The Asian was so-so, I am not a huge fan of Asian food to begin with but figured I would try it anyways. Italian was realllly good, wide selection of food as well. The Mexican restaurant was also very good.

They don't let you book all of your restaurants for the entire trip on the first day, you only get to book 2 days in advance, so try to be there as early as possible to avoid disappointment or a 9pm supper.

The nightly entertainment was pretty good - we stuck around to watch a few shows and had us all on the edge of our chairs clapping. So try to check out a few! The disco was also a great time.

During the day, the entertainers(L.A was so fun) will round people up for tequila volleyball, bingo, aerobics, etc, so try to get involved, it's super fun!

The beaches were clean with white sand and blue ocean. So how can one complain! This isn't my first time in Cabos, so I already knew that swimming is not recommended in the ocean as it has a strong undertow, but that's fine by me.

They have a tour desk at the front lobby to book your excursions, or you can go down to the main pool area where a private company runs a booth and you can usually get a better price from the lady, Claudia, there. I think the company was Scuba Careeb. We booked whale watching, jet skiing and a catamaran cruise for a big group of us through her.
The whale watching was awesome(a bit scary as we were in a small watertaxi in the high tides, lol) but really cool to see. Our driver got right up into the excitement.
Jet skiing was also awesome, I highly recommend it.
The catamaran we went on though, was the best excursion. 4 hours of unlimited booze, whales, music and dancing out on the ocean, followed by snorkelling in a quiet reef(which had a very nice view). Definitely try to check it out!!

If you can get into town to do some shopping at the mall, they have cheap prices! The view from the back of the mall at the marine area/mountains is absolutely beautiful.
If you're into downtown Cabos night life, Squid Ro was SO MUCH FUN. They let you dance on the tables, but don't get suckered in the jello shots, as they shove em down your throat then make you pay after. The Pink Kitty was also fun(we didn't see any dancers though, sadface) and Mandala is also great.

As for the atmosphere of the resort, while it is kid friendly, I saw very few children the entire time. It definitely has a 'young people' vibe and was thriving with young ones who like to party and have a good time.

I had a GREAT trip and would even stay at the same resort again(which has always been my rule, never the same place twice) We made a big crew of young friends from all over, which we partied and did excursions with.

 Week in Cabo

Overall we were impressed with this property. One problem is the lack of lights in the stairways after dark. Service was excellent, as was the food and room.
