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.

Riu Caribe

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.
