Nicely Remodeled

Nice hotel to stay in. It was remodeled last year and still feels new. Not bad for an all-inclusive resort.

Good Experience but....

Room need improvement. This is a 25 year old Hotel. Better off staying at other Riu's. Had to complain about the room and fixed and send a bootle of champagne. Staff can be more helpful, specially the waiters and reception staff (not all). Pool super dirty but good entertaiment. Hotel forces you to make reservations to the "fancy" restaurants to make you have the main buffet every day. Stay away from the asian restaurant . Just another bad buffet. Steak house and mexican good experience. We had fun overall but to me it needs serious improvements and not worth the money you pay for the hotel. Riu Cancun (just remodeled) and Riu Palace (2 yrs old) better experiences

Great place!

I have no complaints over this hotel. I would definitely recommend to others. I missed my first night due to my flight being cancelled and they were nice enough to refund my first night without me even asking. Staff were very pleasant, great food, extremely clean place, and great amenities. Is also very family friendly!

Honeymoon

The first room we stayed in was pool front but needed some upgrades. The shower tub had rust in a few places which made it uncomfortable to stay in. The sheets on the bed were old and not smooth. The room looked nothing like the internet pictures. We asked for another room and the new was a lot better looking and more comfortable. Any entertainment played inside hotel echoes out of the whole hotel, not good for trying to sleep.

Not as good as it used to be

Overall this trip was good. We were in room 457 and you could totally hear the band in the lobby so it was very noisy where we stayed. I would recommend staying on floor 8 or 9 to block the noise from lobby. We also had a water leak in our room due to the rain. The shower didn't drain very fast so your standing in water. The bathroom smelled like urine. The upkeep of this hotel has really gone down hill. We stayed here about 7 years ago and it was better and much cleaner then. The beach is not cleaned of seaweed like before.

Super nice people

We had a great time. All of the employees were nice. We got a double bed and wanted a king. All rooms were booked so they came up and made our doubles into a huge bed. Pools were always clean and nice. It seems to be more of a family resort than adults. Food was good but seemed to be the same every night. Hope for more seafood but there was very little. Good can ride from downtown area. No meters so check with the hotel on what your ride should cost. Would be nice if they had a night club. Unless you leave activities at night are limited. Overall we had a very fun and relaxing trip with friends

We took a day long catamaran trip to Los majerus island. Snorkeling, drinking, food and shopping were great and reasonably priced. We got our tickets at the hotel.

Great for social butterflies

I really liked hotel Riu Caribe. There were almost always activities going on and the staff were GREAT. A little noisy if you were looking for total relaxation though. Food was good not great, except the steak house restaurant...awesome! Drinks were great and plentiful. Very clean. Definetely would recommend to young people.

Wonderful Time at the Riu Caribe

This was our first time at an All-Inclusive, as well as our first time in Cancun. My husband and I had a great time at the Riu Caribe. The beach is pristine and the pools are fantastic. As for food, we thought the buffet was actually the tastiest of the choices, but unfortunately the low point of the trip was my husband getting violently ill after eating at the Asian restaurant... maybe stay away from the sashimi? Overall we were very happy with our trip.
