Affordable resort, all inclusive, party place, family oriented Mar 13, 2011
I stayed 4 nights 3 days at the Riu Santa Fe. Booked from their own website and was a bit cheaper than going through a travel agent. The place is all inclusive food and drinks and drinks. Yes I had to mention drinks twice. There are plenty of bars on the resort. You are greeted with a beer or margarita upon your arrival. Its very much a come and drink and relax kindda place. Its family oriented in the sense that there are family activities like entertaintment shows. There is a kids only pool and playground. On the other hand there are plenty of young people that come here for the all inclusive booze...

Oh and you better beleive they do plenty of drinking, with a bar at avery corner of the resort and waiters and staff offering you drinks and making it a vary party friendly atmosphere you can easily drink a little too many as I saw lots of kids do so. There is a bar that is open 24hrs and a nightclub in the resort. Come midnight this place heats up with lots of young people out and about the resort. If you want to have a nice and calm place you might be better off at their other resort the Riu Palace as the Santa Fe is very party friendly.

Theres no place like Mexico Jun 01, 2010
I stayed at the Riu Santa Fe - All inclusive in July of 09 with some friends on somewhat of a party vacation. The weather was well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit every day, so it was HOT. As we were checking in on a beautiful scorching day, we were served with ice cold Dos Equis, possibly the most memorably refreshing beer I have ever had! We stayed at the Santa Fe for 5 days, where we mostly hung out by the pool. At night, we explored the Cabo nightlife and partied.

We got a really good deal on flight and airfare to Cabo, so in my opinion, the Santa Fe was well worth the money. The room I stayed in was a standard, first floor room with 2 bed. Every day our room was flawlessly cleaned, and I had no complaints as far as staff goes.

The party coordinators there were also great fun. They really make sure you are having a good time. By the end of the trip, we were all good friends with the staff and many of the guests.

I wished the beach in Cabo was better, but unfortunately it was not very swimmer friendly. The current was strong and its a bit of a steep walk down into the ocean so it was better to stay poolside. As far as beaches go, Cancun's beaches were more my speed.

The only real drawback at the Santa Fe was the food. the buffets were okay, and the Guacamole was GREAT! I think the key was that you have to pick a few simple meals that you like and stick with them (for me it was the chips and dips, skirt steak, and rice). However, the themed dinner restaurants were not great at all. Towards the end of the trip, we decided to stick with the buffets and eat simple.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. For someone looking to have a good time with some good people for a fair price, I definitely recommend the Santa Fe

Did you feel comfortable walking around and outside the grounds (in the neighborhood) during the day? At night? You can't do that in some places.
