I have stayes at another Rui property on the past so my expectations were a bit high. First off the property is very well kept. It is clean and well maintained. The pools are clean but cold, but you do get use to it. The beach is clean but not swimmable infront of the resort! You have to walk quite...

We arrived mid afternoon and our room was ready. We flew with Sunwing and received our resort bracelets as we boarded the airport transfer. This made for a fast check in at the hotel. The resort's architecture is adobe style which is nice at a Mexican resort. It seemed new and the grounds and gardens are beautifully maintained. This is...

Returned from a week at Riu Santa Fe ... Food ... plenty of reviews here so no need for me to get into detail, but I will say that the buffet is great at breakfast and evenings. Plenty to choose from so not sure why anyone would complain, but then again, some people are alive just to complain and find...

I read the reviews prior to booking this resort and I was a little worried... then I realized the things that people were complaining about were crazy...the towels were scratchy? The beds were hard? Wow. People writing these things must not travel much, if at all. Mosquitos?? (Have you people been to Alberta in the summer??) In general, this was...

I just returned from a week at the RIU. This is a second visit. Staff was wonderful! Big shout out to Rosenberg and Raul at the breakfast buffet. I have one complaint-there is nowhere on site to get any kind of change. I ran out of smaller bills for tips and all I had were twenties with no way to...

This is a spectacular resort for so many reasons. We went during the week of October 20-28, 2013 (just a month ago) and we went a year ago during this same time period. We like to travel to different destinations but there is so much to do and if you want a variety of things to do and an affordable...

Our stay at the RIU Sante Fe was marred by the unfortunate charge of 945 pesos to our bill for a friend who entered the property to pick us up. He was not informed of any charge, but simply allowed to enter after leaving his driver's license with the guard. We were told during check out that this charge was...

We stayed here for 5 nights. The resort was beautiful and very well kept. Our room felt a bit tired but had everything we needed. The view from our ocean view room (block 7) was worth the extra $$. My only suggestion would be that the beds were made a bit more comfortable, they appeared to have a waterproof cover...
