We arrived to this hotel on March 2nd for 11 nights, Check in is a bit chaotic but they bring you a cool drink while you do check in.We was given our room key and when we got there they had decorated it for my husband's birthday,unfortunately I am fussy and didn't like the fact that we was on the side and although we had a sea view I also wanted a pool view,I went back down to reception told them and they moved us to one in the middle of the hotel straight away. The hotel is lovely and clean with the main pool being the main entertainment pool with activities going on all day you also have a quiet pool which is a chill out area and you also have the best (whitest) sandy beach,so you are spoilt for choice. The food is fabulous from the main buffet restaurant to the steakhouse,Mexican and Chinese,the choice is really good and the food is piping hot (personally if anybody has any complaints about the food then they must be really picky) The staff are a total credit to this hotel nothing is to much trouble,from the staff in breakfast to Manual and Jose at the beach bar,Hugo in the steakhouse,Raemon in the Chinese restaurant and the bar staff in the main bars especially Cristiano who always was on hand to fetch you a drink. These are the things that makes a holiday a success and my husband can't wait to come backMore
first time to cancun and rui Caribe
9 - 17th March 2017 had a lovely weeks holiday at the Rui Caribe. The staff were very helpful, the rooms spotlessly clean and the food was plentiful. The downside was the spring break was in full flow and the Americans were loud and in your face all day and most of the night. Spent our time around the quiet pool which was away from the majority of them. The beds are very small and not very comfortable. We would definitely return but not during March.More

Great if you want constant noise
Well !!!!! Where do you start. Hotel itself ok . Good fab. Beer and cocktails great. But .. . If you want a break where you can relax sunbathe and generally chill . FORGET IT . Noise is a severe issue . So are the spring breakers. Idiots that are paralytic loud obnoxious and generally idiots is a daily . No sorry an hrly occurrence. If you book insist on a room 7th floor or above. Not above reception and be prepared for 24hrs of noise .More
