We had a lot of fun at the Riu Santa Fe. I would say that the quality of food was pretty low. Loved the staff... great people who were also visiting but pool was to cold and dirty. Also, wish there was a hot tub. Overall very fun!

The room they gave us is in 4th floor and there is no elevator. My husband has knee problem so the following day we requested for different room on 1st floor. We were told no availability until the following day we said ok. The following day room was not available until 4 pm and but we had to check out from old room by 11 so basically we did not have a room for 5 hrs and no access to our luggage since they said we need to give them our luggages to be moved to new room when available. Pillows are horrible bed is so hard. Reception staff are not nice at all. Tv was not working and they said need to switch out but not until following day. I normally am low maintenance and don’t complain much except for this one.

Front desk staff are not professional, their English speaking knowledge is very basic and they are not really helpful. Existing hotel guests are not equal or higher priority compare to new guests checking in. had to wait in line for 25 minutes to ask a simple question, I`m the first in the line but 40 new guests can go first. Breakfast is good while lunch is technically the leftover of morning lunch and last nights dinner, very low quality and always out. Room is not fully clean, lots of ants in the restroom with broken toilet tank which was leaking and pretty much flooded our room. No hair shampoo and no hair conditioner in the room , has to ask for it twice. No room service. Very thin walls which literally you can hear the people next door or the cleaning staff pushing their carts. No pen and paper in the room. Line of checkout was not in the lobby and 50 people had to stand in a line in an open area in the SUN. Food at the Sport Bar which is supposed to be open all the time was stale, bad and not eatable. Restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful.
