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.

Best Holiday Ever

We have just returned from Riu Caribe after 10 days spent there with our family. The food was excellent, a huge choice of food, carvery, fish, pasta, Mexican food, salads everything you could ask for. There were also themed restaurants, Asian, Pizza Bar, Mexican, Steak House and you don't need to book.The rooms were clean and airy and air conditioning was very good. The best thing about the room was the sea view and you could also look out on to the main pool as well. All inclusive drinks were excellent quality and an extensive range of drinks and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. A big thank you to Hugo, Adrianna and Ysreal who were very kind, and attentive and always made us feel welcome. My husband was trying to learn Spanish and they were all very helpful!The entertainment team were very good, would try to include you but if you didn't want to join in they didn't hassle you. Mini Me was very funny and made me laugh! The evening entertainment was good with professional shows and you could watch the entertainment at night in an air conditioned theatre.The beach was beautiful, sea clean and warm and the water sports were all included.All in all a fantastic holiday and we will all definitely be going back. Thank You.

good value for money

overall a good stay ...stayed there for two weeks in last December. very good food, and drinks. The rooms where spacius but our room was very old...gave us very bad sleep every night as the matress should have been thrown away some years ago....nice beach in comparisor with other resorts in Cancoon City. for the enterntainment i have to say that they made a big effort but for me the program was average ...especially night entertainment.

Fabulous

Just returned after 7 nights here at the Riu Caribe could not fault it one bit. Huge choice on the all inclusive options. 4 different restaurants and a sports bar. 24hr snacks and alcohol and drinks. Staff are so friendly. Can't remember the guys name who kept our table at breakfast on a morning but he was so kind. Waiter service for drinks. Nice pool and pool bar and beautiful rooms and beach. ūüėá would recommend. There's a bus going in both directions $1 or ten pesos. Recommend taking pesos instead of American dollers. Also it's 1120 pesos per person to get out of the country

Holiday

Came here with a group of ladies to celebrate a special birthday. Room was basic and clean and well looked after. Food restaurants were all nice but our favourite was the Chinese as the service was the best.

Excellent all inclusive holiday

This is a well appointed hotel. One large restaurant and three other "satellite" ones for Steak, Mexican or Asian food and another outside for pizza's etc. The food could get a bit "samey" but really that's a bit picky as there was a huge variety of dishes each day, just that they were repeated a lot.The beach, with sand (and no rocks) dipping gently into the sea was super safe for children. However, the thing that made this holiday special for my wife and I were the Mexican staff. Polite, pleasant and helpful. I would go back again.
