The Riu Santa Fe All Inclusive is an old school Cabo all-inclusive mega-resort with bonuses, like a swim-up bar in the enormous pool, a lovely spa with lots of Jacuzzi tubs and four restaurants where guests can take advantage of all-inclusive meals and cocktails.
Restaurants have a lot of variety (American, Mexican, Asian and Italian fare), but all are a bit mediocre. It's not too big of a problem though, because restaurants abound in downtown Cabo, just a five-minute cab ride away. Rooms are simple but comfortable, with big pretty bathrooms, liquor dispensers, and some have views of the ocean. However, cumbersome tube TVs and dated comforters could use updating.
Reasonable rates and amazing pools are the real draws here. The main pool is massive, with lots of space for lounging, and an infinity pool overlooks the beach (though it fills up quickly). And though the beach is lovely to look at, it's a bit too rough for swimming or water sports.
