Riu Santa Fe All Inclusive
Food wasn’t great, but lots of options. Too many drunks for my taste, but would be fun if that’s the goal. Probably better all inclusive options in Cabo if you’re going with kids.

Great for Adults, not set up for Family Travel.
We traveled with our two children ages 4,7. The kids club building hadn't been built yet, therefore our children met a couple times a day in a main area of the resort for 2 hour sessions. The childcare provider was amazing and very well skilled, the problem was that she had to work out of portable sites without kids pools or activities already set up. We chose this hotel because of the hours the club was to be open and for the children's pool area. The next door Riu Palace had a fully operating club with supervised children's pool and a wide variety of hours to select from. We will not be coming back to the Riu Santa Fe as the administrative staff were not helpful or truthful in accommodating our children for this trip. Family fun shows were great on some nights. This hotel is better for adults and not for family travel. Pizza, burgers and tacos were always available. A side note, we knew that construction was a problem from other reviews, we did not understand to what extreme level, Please see our Garden View room photos :)

Food was horrible and the location to town is not ideal but we mainly went to drink so we were happy with the bars and being next to the beach
Kalli, us4 night trip with friends
Riu Santa Fe All Inclusive
Not worth it
I feel discriminated but the front desk and customer service people. If you are expecting a good service for a “5 stars” hotel do not think that way. The hotel rooms smells like old hotel with bad sewage service . Ive notice ALL the room had LED TVs but mine wasn’t . When I requested if they can change the tv or the room they denied it and their allegation was it’s like a random issue who gets the old 90’s tv or the flat screen. Specially when you travel with kids and they want to hook up their video games. This is not my first time staying at the Riu , I’ve been in multiple places around the world but this experience make it feel like the last time .
