For all those adrenalin junkies out there, there's a wide range of activities to get stuck into. Expect windsurfing, body boarding, scuba diving* and catamarans. If you're interested in scuba diving, then there's an introductory lesson which takes place in the pool.
These bright and spacious double rooms come with a balcony that overlooks the sea. They have 2 US queen-size beds. Plus, you'll also find essentials such as air-conditioning, Wi-Fi*, and a flatscreen TV included.

We travelled as a couple for 2 weeks in November. Neither of us had been to Mexico before and we weren't disappointed.
From the minute we landed (Airport is a nightmare!) we had one of the best holidays.
Arrived at the hotel, given a welcome drink and our room keys and off we went. We were on the 6th floor, room was very clean and the view was amazing!
The food in the hotel is as you would expect from an all inclusive hotel that serves so many people, in fact I would go as far as to say it was better than a lot of other hotel restaurants I have been to. Although the food is repeated throughout the two weeks, there was plenty of variation every day, the choice is definitely not limited!! For the people that have moaned about this - there are THREE other themed restaurants, usually you can only use one theme restaurant a week, not here, you can book as many times as you like for whichever one you like, so you don't have to eat in the main buffet area if you don't think its for you.
We tried all 3 of the others but our favourite was definitely the steakhouse, we went 3 or 4 times and were not disappointed once.
The pool and the beach area are both lovely! There were people constantly cleaning round the pool, fixing tiles in the pool, offering you drinks, they can not do enough for you! The beach the same!
If you aren't beach or pool people then the local bus service is brilliant! we went out on a few days when the weather wasn't brilliant to local shopping centres using the bus and it cost us 10.50pesos each for where ever we wanted to go. The local Mexican people are also very friendly. If you aren't 100% sure where to get off on the bus route they will direct you, most of the time without even asking.
I couldn't find anything to fault with our holiday, but I know everyone's is different.
We both said we had a brilliant time and would definitely return to this hotel!
Now back to work :(
Thanks Riu Caribe Staff - we had an amazing time!More

Stayed between 2-17 Nov with Thompson holidays and had a brilliant stay the staff were very friendly and would go out their way to help with anything we needed or asked for . We stayed on the seventh floor the view was great the room was clean and tidy and well serviced balconies are a little small but who stays there when you have such a great pool and beach ( note if you want a beach lounger you need to get up early) food was very good but after two weeks a bit repetitive but always something for all tastes And if you want a laugh and joke go and see Maya at the lobby bar a proper character More
This was my first all inclusive experience. I can only say that it was ok. Food was ok, accomodations were ok but the staff was excellent. I brought my mom with so it was great there was a quieter pool away from the partying. More

Nice hotel however some of the rooms a little tired we had missing knobs from draws, Brocken draw bases the extraction fan in the bathroom didn't work causing mould in the bathroom. Staff were all very nice and friendly food was good but like all very repetitive. The Mexican restaurant within the hotel was not good at all would suggest avoiding .

Stayed as a couple on 29 October for 2 weeks. We flew on the dreamliner from Manchester , Great flight experience but not all snacks complimentary so take some with you.
The hotel was one of the best I have stayed in. The room was modern and hairdryer in the bathroom really powerful. As with other reviews request a high floor for a better view. The balconies are small but it never bothered us.
Drinks in the hotel are all premium branded so be careful , You can have basically any cocktail you like they even have a few of their own, The entertainment team worked really hard and did a brilliant job, lots of activities through the day, It does finish early but you can get a bus into Cancun outside the hotel for 50p if you want to stay out later and they run 24 hours per day.
The food in the hotel is gorgeous there is so much choice I really dont know how people can complain. you had a choice of fresh fruit, cereal, bacon eggs, even omelettes cooked fresh for you and pancakes mmmm. Dinner and evening meal in the main restaurant also had lots of choice with food been freshly cooked in front of you. We ate in the steak restaurant a couple of times which was gorgeous.
The beach was wonderful and waiters came round and brought your drinks to you while you sunbathed.
We did a trip to Isle Mujeiras which we booked down the road, The ferry across cost about Â£9pp and we hired a golf buggy for the day which cost about Â£30, We drove all around the little mexican and had a meal out, Would definitely recommend this.
Overall I was really impressed with hotel and would definitely visit again.More
