Great Hotel Anniversary trip

It was my first time going to Cancun so I always pick a Resort I have stayed with before and the RIU Resorts never disappoint me, I love this hotel, the staff was great. Loved the food and activities my room was spacious and always clean. they kept the beach area really clean. I love the RIU resorts will stay with them againMore


Great Service & Friendly Staff

We were happy with the resort. The grounds, room, pool, and the rest were pleasant, relaxing, and clean. The pool is big enough so that we never felt crowded or over-run with kids. The hotel staff was very helpful and very friendly the entire stay. We did have one issue with our room at first, but upon request the hotel staff made it right. We were very happy with the accommodations. There were plenty of food options for the week we were there. We would not recommend the on-site Chinese restaurant – the sushi was dry and the food was just not good at all. That being said, the rest of our culinary experience was good. Everyone in our group was able to find many things they liked. Our room was immaculate. As a mom who likes to go on vacation and have things clean, but not have to do it myself, I was SO happy and appreciative of our cleaning lady!!! It was a great trip and we enjoyed our stay at the Riu Caribe.More

Kenny T,

Great resort. Friendly staff

Stayed for a week in April. Room was spacious and clean. Bought internet access for a week and internet coverage was decent throughout the resort. Good variety of food in the buffet restaurant. Had dinner in the Mexican, Asian and Steak restaurants. Food and drinks in all the restaurants were included in the all inclusive. Entertainment team were really good and were always busy in the pool and in the evening. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would be happy to visit againMore


Perfect Hotel and Staff

We stayed at Riu Caribe for 2 weeks 4 - 18 April. Hotel very clean, staff always close to hand. We arrived with about 30 others on the coach from the airport and expected a long check in but they were prepared for us. Cases were left with the care of the Bell Boy and we all went together to sit in front of the entertainment stage next to the reception area. We all got a nice cold drink and they checked us in all together, we all received an envelope with our names on. The envelope had our room swipe cards and pool towel cards, along with our wifi login and password. All very fast and efficient. Cases were delivered to our rooms which only took around 15-20 minutes. The general buffet restaurant food was varied, hot or cold as appropriate and never too crowded. Waiter on hand to bring us wine or water, perfect. There is three speciality restaurants, but we did not use them, had no need. Cocktails available all day, oh they were good. Fridge in room was refilled every other day, never ran out of anything. Great to get up in the middle of the night to ice cold water. When we booked we asked for a high room and ended up on the sixth floor, fantastic views. We had trouble with the air conditioning in the room, could not seem to get a reasonable temperature to suit the pair of us and have come back with chesty coughs. There were two wedding groups at the hotel our second week which did seem to take over the pool area we had been using. But there are plenty of sun beds around the pools and the beach. It made us move to the beach and it was great, lovely sand. Local bus service runs just outside the hotelMore
