Riu Sante Fe Information

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
