Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

Located just outside of downtown Cabo San Lucas, the Riu Santa Fe is a classic Cabo all-inclusive megaresort. This enormous hotel has 902 simple rooms with huge bathrooms. The all-inclusive program here includes drinks -- although don't expect a variety of liquors -- meals, and entertainment. While some guests complain about mediocre food, this resort does offer a gigantic pool with plenty of space to sunbathe. Extra hotel perks include a fitness center, spa, and nightly entertainment, but lounge chairs can fill up early and the water is too dangerous for swimming.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just outside downtown Cabo San Lucas, and a short water taxi ride away from the marina

Riu Santa Fe is located just outside downtown Cabo San Lucas, next to its sister property, Hotel Riu Palace. It's right across the bay from Land's End (home to sites such as El Arco and the secluded Lovers Beach), and many guests choose to get to the sites by water taxi.

Cabo San Lucas is located at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula. This beach town is part of a stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos -- the Capes -- and has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. Hence the nickname Cabo San Loco.

  • 40-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 4-minute drive to boat launch for the famous Playa del Amor
  • 5-minute drive to Boulevard Marina for shopping
  • 7-minute drive to downtown Cabo's party spots
  • 7-minute drive to the Marina
  • 7-minute drive to the historic stone church, Iglesia de San Lucas, established in 1730
  • 8-minute drive to the Cabo San Lucas Country Club golf course
  • 10-minute drive to great views of Land's End, a picturesque rock formation on the coast
