This hotel has totally won me over. Wasn't sure before I booked it because of a few negative reviews but with excellent service, fantastic food & most important of all excellent entertainment for the whole family. It's a hotel that I'd definitely come again with the family.

Well, I have just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel and I don't know where to begin. I have had the best holiday I have ever had. Resources - the hotel has its own mini market which has everything you will need or require down to gifts for people at home, sun tan lotions, bags and medicines.... More

The food, the staff and the beach were all fantastic, I've never seen a harder working staff. Rooms clean and great bartenders. The food was excellent and varied. Great shows too, especially the rock and roll show, many fun costume changes. Only negative was the gym or workout area was small and under equipped. Now most people don't workout on... More

Hi All As the title says this was our third visit to the Riu Caribe and we are looking to book again. Everything is just the same as when I reviewed this hotel before, ergo they are doing the job right. Got to mention the staff again though - AMAZING - everyone is so helpful. We did have a little...

What a great trip and what a fantastic price!! The Riu Caribe sits on the narrow section where the bay in on one side (front of hotel) and... More

I came back from this hotel at the end of January, myself and my husband went with another couple and loved it. The whole holiday experience was great....bonus was that you could use the Riu Cancun facilities as well. It was a half hour stroll up to Cancun and we also got a bus downtown to the bars down there... More

Stayed here last year after staying at the RIU Palace next door before. The staff is very accommodating and always quick to fix any issues. Max in the main buffet was awesome and immediately greeted us each night we ate there. Love the mini bar in the room which had a liquor dispenser of Vodka, Rum, Whiskey, and Tequila. Mini... More

We just got back from Riu Caribe on Saturday. From beginning to end this resort is fabulous and our first time to Mexico. Just a traveller tip when arriving at Mexico airport. You will have lots of people offering a taxi. Do not take this. It's already included in your trip booking e.g. if through Sunwing as they provide a... More
