Just got home last night from a 7 day stay at Riu Caribe. USA Transfers was waiting for us at the airport. We got there early so our room wasn't ready but we got our wristbands and changed our clothes and got started. I can't say enough how gorgeous the pool area is. If you like quiet there's a smaller...

We stayed here to celebrate my partners 50th The hotel is immaculate and not sure why people are saying it's dated. Food is superb and always hot. Drinks were quickly served but the majority of the cocktails had pre-made bases which made them sickly. Pool looked good, but we only used the quiet one. Beach is superb. HOWEVER...... We saw...

The hotel, upon arrival very welcoming nothing too much trouble! Reception staff advised us to leave suitcases for the bell boys to deliver direct to our rooms. The staff are well presented always wearing immaculate uniforms. Very attentive, always with a smile, nothing too much trouble. Although considered to be a very busy holiday period I must say the hotel...

Hotel was good. They were very accomodating. I was assigned a room which I did not like due to the view and they changed my room the next day. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is clean and maid services are done everyday. They have a few things you can do in the same hotel such as jetskis, and...

Having stayed at other Riu resorts, this was by far the worst. Having stayed at other resorts on cancun, I will be strongly advising family, friends, colleagues, neighbours to stay well away. Rude staff, poor management, not ideal for young families, lack of services. The best part of the holiday was the weather.

Awesome beach, some of the best food I've ever had at an all inclusive resort! I'm a big fan of the RIU chain and this is prime example of why! You'll have no problems if you stay here! I will say that the swim up bar is in a very odd place and extremely high, with a tile lip that...

We stayed at the hotel for the 1st 2 weeks of April, family of 4 with 2 teenagers 18 & 15. Booked through Thomson. Check in was really quick & easy with a cocktail waiting for us. I'd emailed the hotel a few weeks before to ask if we could have a room on a high level with a connecting...

The hotel is in a great spot right on a golden beach with turquoise sea. The pluses: 1.We had a fantastic view of the sea - room tip - go high. We were on the 8th floor in the centre and there is one floor above that. The lower floors reputedly pick up a lot of noise from the lobby...

The rooms are good sized beds looks like 2 beds pushed together but it wasn't, only one large one, we had a room with a small balcony but that seemed to depend on what room you got as there was ones with larger terrace. Rooms cleaned daily and spotless. Staff are very nice, food is good I'm not a picky...

“Higher floors have the best view”
saheastsussex, 21 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Go high to avoid the noise (floors 8 and 9). Rooms in the middle will pick up less noise from the adjoining Riu hotel or the beach parties.”

“Our room on right side of hotel was noisy (neighbor resort activities at night). Maybe interior rooms better. (All rooms face the beach).”
