Our Opinion

Family oriented with a good location right on a calm beach. The great kids club is what makes this such a family friendly resort. Good food and 24 hour sports bar. Riu Caribe is also popular with a younger crowd of couples and singles. The large pool here is quite amazing. Rooms on the 4th floor and higher have the best view of the beach and lagoon. An excellent choice for anyone who wants to experience Cancun.


Overview

The magnificent Riu Caribe delivers the comfort you seek in a luxurious decor of marble floors and stained glass windows reminiscent of Mexican haciendas. Immerse yourself in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea... Take a walk along a path of softly lit tropical gardens or explore nearby cultural attractions. The Riu Caribe, thoroughly a blissful and friendly resort that will surely please your needs.

Location: Beachfront in Cancun's hotel zone, 10 min to downtown, 45 min from the airport.

first time to cancun and rui Caribe

9 - 17th March 2017 had a lovely weeks holiday at the Rui Caribe. The staff were very helpful, the rooms spotlessly clean and the food was plentiful. The downside was the spring break was in full flow and the Americans were loud and in your face all day and most of the night. Spent our time around the quiet pool which was away from the majority of them.The beds are very small and not very comfortable.We would definitely return but not during March.

Great if you want constant noise

Well !!!!! Where do you start. Hotel itself ok . Good fab. Beer and cocktails great. But .. . If you want a break where you can relax sunbathe and generally chill . FORGET IT . Noise is a severe issue . So are the spring breakers. Idiots that are paralytic loud obnoxious and generally idiots is a daily . No sorry an hrly occurrence. If you book insist on a room 7th floor or above. Not above reception and be prepared for 24hrs of noise .

  • Dawn B :
Wedding at Riu Caribe 2017

Went here in March to get married in the wedding gazebo. Fantastic hotel the food is amazing and the staff can't do enough for you. The wedding was excellent everything went so well, stunning and beautiful. I cannot say anything bad about this location and hotel for a wedding , the wedding planner Laura did everything to make our day lovely we even had our room decorated by staff with rose petals on our wedding night. .My family came too and they all loved it. Fab beach and pools .

Amazing

We arrived to this hotel on March 2nd for 11 nights,Check in is a bit chaotic but they bring you a cool drink while you do check in.We was given our room key and when we got there they had decorated it for my husband's birthday,unfortunately I am fussy and didn't like the fact that we was on the side and although we had a sea view I also wanted a pool view,I went back down to reception told them and they moved us to one in the middle of the hotel straight away.The hotel is lovely and clean with the main pool being the main entertainment pool with activities going on all day you also have a quiet pool which is a chill out area and you also have the best (whitest) sandy beach,so you are spoilt for choice.The food is fabulous from the main buffet restaurant to the steakhouse,Mexican and Chinese,the choice is really good and the food is piping hot (personally if anybody has any complaints about the food then they must be really picky) The staff are a total credit to this hotel nothing is to much trouble,from the staff in breakfast to Manual and Jose at the beach bar,Hugo in the steakhouse,Raemon in the Chinese restaurant and the bar staff in the main bars especially Cristiano who always was on hand to fetch you a drink.These are the things that makes a holiday a success and my husband can't wait to come back
