I'm British and I stayed at Hotel Caraibi for a week in August with my boyfriend. We had a really nice time and would definitely go back if we found ourselves in Rimini again! Like all the other hotels in the Rivazzura area, it is three star so the rooms aren't really fancy or anything, but for the money you really couldn't ask for more!! In terms of practicalities the hotel is really really close to the beach and if you get the all inclusive package your sunbeds are included- it's really well organised on the beach and you have the same sunbed for the entire duration of your stay.
One really positive aspect is the food and mealtimes generally. Unlike in other such hotels the meals (apart from breakfast) are served to your table by super friendly and helpful waiters. Beer, wine and soft drinks are included (however much you want) and they come around bringing seconds if you want it. The menu is very varied with six options for each course including lots of child-friendly options (e.g. pasta with butter/tomato sauce/meat sauce, grilled meat). Twice a week they have special themed evenings, for example a seafood evening. The atmosphere is especially convivial during these evenings and everyone is really enjoying themselves!
There's also really great organised entertainment each evening- a disco for kids and then something different each night, e.g. quiz night, dance troupe coming to perform, table football tournament, card games, train tour to Rimini's old town etc. The animator Francesco is great and includes all the guests in the activities (even when you don't speak Italian! ;)). There's always a really nice feeling about the activities and kind of a community feel in the hotel. There are also activities for kids in the day such as painting, balloon animals, etc.
That's really the main thing I would say about this hotel - they make such a huge effort so that each and every guest has the best holiday ever! All the staff without exception are extremely friendly and will go above and beyond to help you with whatever you want. Little things like Stefano offering us water bottles for our drive back home! Or he and Francesco taking all the twenty-something couples out for a drink and seating us all together at dinner. I would recommend this hotel for couples, families with children, groups, whoever really! :)
SO - do not hesitate! Book your stay now and you will not regret it! :)
Grazie per tutto! :)
