My friend and I were looking for a resort for a long birthday weekend. We read dozens of reviews multiple times and were totally confused! We chose Riu Caribe and it was perfect for what we wanted. Our goals were an all-inclusive with a swim up bar and not too couple-ly.
Be prepared that this resort is a little further away than most. I was slightly worried when we hit the lobby and felt like I was back in the 70s. Orange/white/silver decor. Whatever. We were there every night hanging at the lobby bar meeting tons of fun people. The rooms were SO clean and they really do have unlimited bottles of alcohol!! All of the staff were extremely friendly, spoke English very well and were very attentive to our needs. Once they know your names, they remember forever...it's a nice touch! The pool entertainment staff were fantastic! We've been to alot of resorts and this was the most fun we had. They are very engaging and there are lots of activities. No fighting for chairs - lots by the pool and on the beach. The food is OK - but exactly what we expected for what we paid. Do not miss the juice bar at breakfast. I tried weird combos that were awesome!! The crowd is very eclectic. Older couples, families with small kids, very European, middle aged couples.....not alot of single groups. But we had tons of fun anyway!!
