From a partially submerged lounge chair gaze across the infinity pool at Riu Santa Fe in Los Cabos. Past the iridescent Sea of Cortes, you’ll see the stunning El Arco rock formation at Land’s End. Your 24-hour, all-inclusive resort, just three miles from downtown Cabo San Lucas, provides just the right balance of serenity, spectacular vistas and thrilling nightlife.
You’ll find more ways to pamper yourself at Riu Santa Fe than time to indulge in all of them. While the kids splash in a pool especially for them or engage in Kids Club activities, head to the swim-up bar at an adult pool or indulge in the magical warmth of a Jacuzzi. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a rejuvenating massage or complimentary steam bath and sauna at Renova Spa.
It’s hard to improve on moonlight and sea breezes, so three of the five restaurants offer outdoor dining. Take a seat on the terrace at La Baja California, the main restaurant, to fully enjoy the buffet. A Mexican restaurant, La Mision, and a steakhouse, Torote, are both poolside. For a gourmet treat, try Peking duck at Zashila followed by yummy fried ice cream.
This hotel has amazing pools and a great view of the Arch. The staff is extremely helpful and try to make your stay pleasant. The entertainment team was great – there were plenty of things to do all day as well as shows every evening. The hotel itself has beautiful landscaping and we especially enjoyed the infinity pools. There are plenty of bars, including swim up bars to accommodate everyone. The buffet has a large selection and the food is good but it was the same dishes every night. All in all it was a fun experience with great service. I would definitely recommend them and already have :).

This hotel did not disappoint. We stayed in building #7…well worth the extra cost. This is the building facing the Ocean as well as where most of the guests come during the day to sun bathe and enjoy the bars, the music and activities. The food was great. We ate at the buffet and the Italian and the steak house All were excellent. All in all this is an excellent facility. The housekeeping is first class; always someone cleaning something. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Room Tip: if you want ocean view, you have to book and pay for ocean view to get in building #7.
