    Girls, just thought I'd share the little bit I found out about the new Riu they are building in Cabo. When we were there in April and then again in just a few weeks ago for our site visit the constructions crews were still hammering away at it. It's enormous!
    So here's the scoop (and I apologize if someone else already posted about this):
    It's going up right next to (actually most of it is behind) the Riu Palace.
    It's set to open up at the end of this year/early 2008.
    It is a 5 star, where the Riu Palace is a 6.
    They are two completely seperate resorts but if you are a guest at the Palace, you have access to the Santa Fe. (you just can't have dinner at their restaurants for free) BUT not vice versa.
    The Santa Fe is about $100-$200 cheaper per night (according to a travel agent friend of mine) but this is for a gardenview room.
    She also said that the Santa Fe will be much more quaint, where the Palace is more grandios.

    Does anyone have any other info to add? I'm psyched to give our guests the option of the cheaper resort.

      Hi Amanda,

      They actually turned off the power at the RIU when we were there 2 weeks ago to connect to the new construction. I thought it was opening November 2007? That was the buzz when I was there.

      We were married September 29th, were you there then?

        I was there the 26-29th of September. But I got the info on when it's opening from the Riu website. Plus our W.C. said that when places say they are opening and when they actually do are totally different.
        But maybe it will open on time...that would be cool.

              Just that it would open November of 2007. From the staff I heard this. Thanks, Amanda, it was amazing!
