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 they also have people who help you choose tours and excursions. I personally rented a Jeep to do more things during the day. Inside Riu Caribe theres an Alamo, definitely recommend it. We were helped by Gabriela and she was lovely. Very understanding and charismatic and resonable prices. Overall good stay in this hotel. More
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 didn't feel over crowded or too busy at all. Always plenty of sunbeds...always! This hotel has the best stretch of sand by far. It may look tiny on brochure pictures but it is more than adequate, again was used but not overly packed full. You get free towels which you can change more than once throughout the day if you need too. Waiters walk around the pool and beach taking drink orders, which is great! 4 restaurants of which you don't have to book so long as you turn up between 6:30-9pm. Beds are huge and comfortable and we were happy with the daily maid service. We have thoroughly enjoyed this holiday but the only downside we found was upon arrival at the airport. Coming down those flights of steps to be met by a sea of people all trying to get through immigration. After a 9hr 45 min flight the last thing you want to do is queue for another 1.5hours...which we did! Bearing in mind that was before going to collect suitcases which had already been taken off the carousel and lined up. The airport puts me off coming back. More

Worst Riu and no star hotel
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.More
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 will make you trip every time, something could be addressed by management. If that's all you've got to worry about, you're in for a good holiday!More
