Riu Santa Fe debuts new look with just-completed reno

PALMA DE MALLORCA — RIU Hotels & Resorts has unveiled the just-completed reno of one of its three hotels in the Los Cabos area of Mexico: Riu Santa Fe.

The hotel was expanded in 2018 when the Riu Pool Party area and Splash Water World were built, and fully renovated this year. RIU’s other properties in Baja California Sur are the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas and the Adults-Only Riu Palace Baja California.

Except those built during the 2018 expansion, all of Riu Santa Fe’s rooms have been refurbished.

The reception area has also been fully renovated, plus the check-in and check-out areas of reception are separate. An additional reception desk with concierge was added to prevent guests from that area having to go to the main reception desk.

The hotel has expanded the dining options available to guests: the Kulinarium restaurant, with gourmet cuisine a la carte; two Tiki Taco stations; and two Pepe’s Foods in total, as one more has opened in addition to the previously existing traditional grill restaurant. The main Baja California restaurant remains in operation, serving buffet breakfasts and dinners, the restaurant Lio, open during the Riu pool Parties; as well as the themed restaurants Carusso (Italian) and Sakura (Asian), and La Misión (Mexican) and Torote (steakhouse) located next to the main pools.

Customers can also enjoy the hotel’s 13 bars: La Monumental bar and lounge; bars Plaza Olé and Bravo; bar Felipe; the 24-hour Sports Bar; the Wet & Drink, in the water park area; swim up bars la Iguana, Tequila, Mezcal and Mezcalito. El Ushuaia, Privilege and Space are in the Riu Pool Party area so they are open only for pool parties.

The Riu Santa Fe has an extensive entertainment program, including RiuLand for kids. Guests can also enjoy wellness services from the Renova Spa, with a beauty salon, hair salon and massage parlour, as well as Splash Water World waterpark.

Riu Parties got their start at Riu Santa Re in 2018. Parties take place four times per week in the Riu Pool Party area. Guests at RIU’s other two Los Cabos resorts can attend these parties and the waterpark at no additional cost, as they are all part of the hotel’s 24-hour All-Inclusive program.
