Myself and my boyfriend visited Cancun last April for a 2 week holiday, We chose the Riu Caribe because of the price! Very reasonable.....Food available throughout the day.........We never went hungry however it didn't set the world on fire but was fine for what we wanted! Asian restaurant was very good.....make reservations for this.
Drinks served to us on the beach! we didnt event have to lift a finger! Staff within the bars, restaurant and reception were very helpful! Reps very good and not over the top! they would ask if you want to be involved in the activities without that usual pushy rep way! and would also accept no meaning no!
Beach activities available throughout the day..........Towels available all day! Some people have commented about sunbed wars! we found plenty of beds and also moved round throughout the day! but i suppose is depends on what time of year you visit.
I would however say that the nightlife within the hotel was pretty poor! everything stopped at about 10pm! which is great if you want a quiet holiday however if you wanted a little more going on it would mean leaving the hotel and paying to go somewhere else.
Rooms really nice and tidy, Make sure you take the correct plug adapter as they are expensive to buy within the hotel! rooms serviced everyday and mini bar and fridge topped up!
The one disappointing thing was that when we left we noticed on the coach that our English money had been taken from our belongings it was around £40 however more fool us we should have locked it away in the safe! I just didn't think we needed to! I did email the hotel to complain and they said they would give us a free upgrade next time we visited! not sure we'll ever be back to use it but i did feel they took the complaint seriously.
All in all its paradise! Hope this review helps all looking to book in the Riu Caribe
