3 reviews of Hotel Riu Caribe in English
I stayed for a wedding in 2009 and found it to be an excellent hotel. The hotel entertainment crew were a little pushy to visit the various nightclubs but the girls were easy on the eyes so I wasn't complaining. The food was good and with a big selection, especially for breakfast.
If you stayed all inclusive a good tip is to visit the sister hotel down the road, newer and with wider range of food options. The beaches are amazing and if your lucky enough you can grab a photo with a gorilla on the beach! surreal!
My wife and I just got back from RIU Caribe. We spent the week there and loved it. The resort is older but alot of the other resorts are just as old. The staff was great. They were polite, helpful, and never pressured us into anything. They were there if we needed them. The room was very clean and we had the JR Suite and loved the balcany view and the room was big enough. We could not specify a king size or full size bed when we booked the room, so when we saw the beds were 2 full sizes, we called down to the front desk and asked them to make the two beds into one and within 5 mins they came to our room and joined the two beds ito one and fitted the sheats to fit. The room was serviced and cleaned everyday. We let the maids know when we left the room if they were in the hallway and they cleaned our room after we left at noon. The beach was good. Pleanty of chairs to choose from. We stayed on the beach most of the time and not the pool because, we came to see the beach not a pool. If we wanted to lay by a pool we would have stayed home. We came to Cancun for the beach, ocean view, and a getaway from life and this fit us perfect. Not to mention this was our Honeymoon. Food is very expensive outside the hotel so get the all inclusive package. Sure the buffet food is bland, but when a person cooks for hundreds of people per day, 3 meals a day, you have to make it bland to suit everyone. Thats why they make salt and pepper shakers. They only serve Pepsi products. No Coke, Sprite, DrPepper, Mountan Dew, or RC Cola. But I love Pepsi too.
For the money you cant go wrong.
Just returned from a 10 night stay at the Riu Caribe and we could not fault it. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble.
It’s an all-inclusive hotel and even the International branded drinks are included. You have a minibar and fridge in your room which is stocked up regularly too. Excellent choice of food in the main restaurant and 3 further a la carte restaurants to choose from - Mexican, Asian and a Steakhouse. There’s also a 24 hour sports bar included in the package.
The hotel is located about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Cancun so is far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing during the day, but close to the main nightlife of Cancun if you want. Buses run 24 hours too and are dirt cheap.
All in all, it’s a lovely location, great pool and beach, friendly courteous staff and all you can eat and drink - just the recipe for a great holiday. Can’t wait to return!
