Hi my partner me and my young grandson stayed at the caribe 22 July this year for 2 weeks.
The hotel is really nice and modern ,not so the lifts.
The staff as in almost every hotel in the hotel zone in cancun work very hard and deserve every
Dollar tip you give them.
Everything about the riu caribe is nice and compact .
Meals are much and varied that it really is easy to please nearly everyone.
Go to the caribe if you like night clubbing as its in the heart of cancun.
Go to the caribe if you like good food and good service in a really clean hotel.
Now the bad points .
In truth the caribe is really an 18-30 holiday set up
The main pool is in business from 10 till 6 every day with good time and drinks flowing like there was no tomorrow
That's the way it is hey I'm all for letting them sit in the boiling sun drinking their heads off ,they sit
and smoke dropping their cig buts into the pool messing it up that's not right .
If you want a quiet nights kip then the caribe is definitely not for you or young family's
When party goers are arriving back in the hotel at 3- 4 and 5 in the morning shouting screaming banging on walls
getting other guests up that's a huge no no
There is a quiet pool a little further up which is nice there's also the pizza bar with cracking pizzas .
10 days into our holiday all was well till I found human poo in the quiet pool .
I informed a member of staff and the entertainment squad , was the pool closed ???
No way the offending lump was scooped up in a pool net some chlorine crystals were thrown in to the pool
Riu management this was our first time at a riu establishment , before going we were under the impression
the Riu stood for quality , I'm afraid not in this case .
Please take heed Riu and stop guests from wrecking your property and making other guests uncomfortable .
We are not saying its the hotels fault but they should be first to say not in our hotel full stop .
