We enjoyed our stay at the RIU Caribe from June 30 to July 4, 2013. My husband & I took our two daughters (age 18 & 21). The four of us stayed in a Junior Suite (Room 916). Our travel agent requested the top floor (9th). If you are traveling as a family, I would recommend the extra expense of the junior suite. It gives you a bigger room and a larger balcony. It was located at the end of the hallway away from the noise and traffic near the elevator. The top floor gave us the most beautiful views of the city and the water! We had plenty to eat and drink. We took two excursions that were both great experiences: a snorkeling trip from AquaWorld and the notorious Bongo Tour (Congo Bar, Senor Frogs & Coco Bongo). No complaints, I just wish the weather had cooperated!!!
A few tips:
~Electrical outlets are scarce. If you need several things plugged in at once, you might consider an adapter with multiple outlets. The bathroom is equipped with a small blow dryer.
~If space allows, bring your own pillow. I'm a pillow freak and I was so glad I had my own.
