Review Summary



  • Limited liquor selection with all-inclusive deal
  • Rooms near the pool can be noisy
  • Lounge chairs fill up early
  • Water to dangerous for swimming
  • Some tube TVs and old comforters

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.

Map of Riu Santa Fe All Inclusive

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.
