Riu Santa Fe, Los Cabos

The RIU hotel chain does it right when it comes to an all inclusive experience. The RIU Santa Fe in Los Cabos has stunning ocean and arch views as well as a great beach, beautifully kept grounds, amazing service, and it's only a short walk down the beach to the main harbour.

Why It's amazing:


Rooms are newly renovated with liquor dispensers in every room (vodka, rum, gin and rye as well as a few beers stocked in your fridge). Beds are doubles, however are pushed together to form a large king size bed. *Add in a blanket between the beds, to buffer the break in the beds.

Pool & Pool Entertainment

Can't really get any better than an infinity pool that reaches out towards the arches of Cabo. There are constantly games happening in the pool including tequila volleyball, water polo, aqua-aerobics, cooperative games. Never a dull moment with the entertainment there. They pump music all day at the main pool at a good level. Loud enough to still enjoy it, but you can easily have a conversation with those around. There is a quieter pool in the back of the property if music and activities aren't your idea of a relaxing vacation.


The beach is nicely kept, and very clean. The beach angles down towards the water, as the waves are pretty big and make their way up the sand. The waves tend to get smaller as you walk down the beach towards the Marina, so for kids I would recommend moving down the beach a bit before getting into the water. *Los Cabos has quiet an undertow when it comes to the water. Please watch kids carefully as it is very easy to get your feet wiped out from underneath you.


In general, Riu's food is amazing! This property has 4 themed restaurants, and 2 large buffets. The restaurants you need to book in advance usually the day before, however it's not hard to do this, and there is always room somewhere. They have a set menu where you have your choice of appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, and desserts. The buffet food is great aswell. There is always a large array of food options including themed nights for dinners. Tons of healthy options like freshly squeezed juices, large salad and fruit bar (
