RIU Caribe

Over all resort was great. Standard rooms are okay but 2 double beds is tough with 4 people in your room. The standard rooms have balconies but not big enough to enjoy without hitting your knees on the wall. Expensive to be upgraded so we could have a bigger balcony. We requested to be beside our family members but were told we couldn't. Great size for smaller kids. Riu Land was good for the kids.

The strong points
Staff were very friendly. Clean, food was very good. Smaller resort so easy to get around.

The weak points
Having only 2 double beds was tough. They advertised that our room had a balcony. There wasn't room on the balcony to sit without your knees touching the wall. We upgraded but paid quite a bit for the same room but a bigger balcony.

Overall it was great!

We had a nice time at the Riu Caribe in Cancun. The beach was beautiful , pools were nice and the grounds were clean and well kept. I find that most staff was very helpful and attended to any needs. There were a few people who were miserable and hated life , but I was on vacation and chose not to let that spoil my time. The beach was honestly where I spent the majority of the day, and was so surprised on how calm it was even on the days where it was windy and cloudy. The food wasn’t great , but there was a wide selection so I found something. Pizza bar by pool was good. The fish was always fresh and probably the best thing in the buffet. They had a lot going on during the days, different games on beach or in pool , however after 11 pm there wasn’t much going on at resort. The Cancun night life was a 5 min bus ride and was amazing. The bus was safe and I highly recommend taking it in. The service was frequent every 5 min or sooner. Over all it was a great time!!!

The strong points
Beach Games in the beach Close to night life Close to excursions
