Complaint in regards to the RIU Santa Fe From March 9th to 16th, I booked a vacation with Sell-Off Vacations to go to Los Cabos, Mexico at the Riu Santa Fe resort. The Riu Santa Fe seemed like the best value for our dollar. However, this was not the case for the following reasons: - The outside is beautiful and...

Sorry for the late review.. I Stayed at the Santa Fe back in January..8th-16th and had a blast. As far as the resort goes it is beautifully maintained and the grounds were lush and taken care of. I tried all the restaurants and thought they were better than average especially the steak house. My only complaint was at the breakfast...

This hotel considers themselves a 4+ stars & they are not! The sheets & towels are terrible...rough & worn. While the staff is excellent the resort is tired & in need of repair. The pools were losing tiles everywhere & the bed was just satisfactory. We experienced huge inconveniences w spring breakers waking us up at 3 am most nights....

Traveled March 13-20th to the RIU Santa Fe for a relaxing vacation. Our first impression of the resort was good; beautiful landscape, wonderful pools, friendly staff..etc. We chose this resort due to its close proximity to Cabo San Lucas and that there was a "no spring breakers" policy. Unfortunately this wasn't true with this resort, and most of the hotel...

We have stayed here before and I have been to Cabo 12 times as the weather and people are great! This was a disaster with the college kids. Day 1- we arrive to someone puking by the pool then taken away in a wheelchair, no sleep. Day 2- we had requested 2 adjoining rooms but got rooms in building 3...

Recently returned from our first trip to Cabo San Lucas and loved the location. We have stayed at several Riu locations in March and have always enjoyed them. The web sight claims to not allow spring breakers but this location obviously did as about 25% of the guests were college students. For the most part they were fine but in...

My husband and I just took a late honeymoon and stayed at this resort. The views were breath taking and absolutely gorgeous. The food at the resort was awful, we weren't able to eat much of anything while we vacationed there. Also one of the main reasons I booked this resort was it stated that they "don't allow spring break...

We just returned from a week long stay at the Rui. We went for March Break as 3 of us are teachers and when we arrived it was a ton of Spring breakers. We definitely like to party but this was excessive. It did calm down as the week went on but I would never return for Spring Break again....

Great facilities, polite staff, and clean rooms. Washroom access is horrible near the pools as there is seriously one washroom in the area. I felt so bad for the cleaning lady who was constantly cleaning the washroom throughout the day!! The weather does get quite extreme so i do recommend bringing a lot of sunscreen and avoiding the sun at...
