We stayed during the Christmas break. Great resort for kids, calm waters, plenty of water sports and beach/pool games to keep kids busy all day. Nightly shows were very entertaining.

visited dec. 21-26, 2011. checked in at 3:15 pm. room key did not work. had to go back to front desk 3 times before the problem was fixed. room light did not work. toilet was broken. refrigerator was not plugged in. maintenance did take care of everything but it took a long time. when i requested a better room i was told by the front desk manager that nothing could be done until the next day. i didnt understand why as it was just at the beginning of checkout time. the beach area was not very clean. had a lot of seaweed. they had one worker trying to clean it up but it took him all day to do so. i never saw anyone on the beach cleaning up trash. at the lobby bar i went to get a cup of tea and there were at least 12 cockroach type bugs on the coffee/water machine. they were also going into the sugar/teabag holder. totally creeped me out. 24 hr sports bar was supposed to have food for those who had an early flight out....not!!! there were a few green apples and that was it. on the bright side, a nice dinner and management cocktail party was provided on christmas eve.

We have only stayed at a few places in Cancun .. but have no reason to leave the Riu Caribe. I don't think there could be a better staff anywhere. The food is good - not gourmet all the time - but good and there's a wide selection on the buffet. The accomodations are getting better with the improvements. The staff is what keeps us coming back.

Renovation going on all the time!!! ORB!TZ did not warn us, neither did the hotel employees upon arrival. We had them move us from our 1st room within the first hour because the construction was so loud. The next room was newly updated, but again, by 7am the next morning, there were hammers, drills, pounding going on in the rooms next to us, on the floors above and below us!!! We were told the workers would be done by 6pm, but many nights they were still working until 8 or 8:30pm!!! The company that transported us to/from the airport was nowhere to be found. They did not meet us in the lobby unpon arrival as promised. Our contact called us at 7:30am to meet with us the next morning and we told him we were'nt even out of bed. He promised to return at 7pm, but he did not show up. We had to ask the hotel to contact them so we could return to the airport. Most staff members at Rui Caribe were very nice, but some of them at the lobby desk were not helpful at all.

RIU Caribe is a great spot for those looking to come to Cancun and find a spot to both relax and party. Because of its value, our group was able to spend our money enjoying the other things that Cancun has to offer. The fact that the hotel is all-inclusive and has everything you need, including a spectacular beach front pool, is a complete bonus. We'll be back for sure.

I must say a disappointment with no Air Conditioning in the Lobby however its has that South American Decor/Vibe. I suggest go straight outside to see the why your there for the Beautiful Beaches as they Extend from the Pool Area easy access to the Beach with Chairs & Umbrella 's they come by to ask if you would like to have any drinks/water which is what you will need while in the Sun Make sure you Bring Plenty of Sunscreen . The Water Temperature is Delightful at the Beach you'll really want to stay there longer but think how burnt you can get so moderation is key so you don't ruin your trip with a major sunburn. Staff for the most part are very accomodating. Bring plenty of singles and tip they are very appreciative ... During the Day Take Bus R2 takes you up and down the Hotel Zone everywhere tell Bus Driver where you want to go Downtown Cab At Night Clubs /Hardrock Cafe /StarBucks for a Good Cup of Coffee ! Sooo Disappointed in the Food Coffee ! Go for the Bottled Beer otherwise they add Sugar to Everything ! Next time I will stay at the RIU Cancun/Palace or another Upscale Hotel it will be a Better Choice for me to Upgrade it 's worth It when your on Vacation So every moment is enjoyable ........... Don't Miss going to Xceret Excursion to Swim under the Caves in the Salty River quite an Experience and the Beach is just Breathtaking !!!!

My girlfriend & I were visiting Cancun with friends during the 4th of July weekend. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice and attentive. I debated about staying here or at the other Riu hotel down the street, the Palace Las Americas. The Caribe had a warm atmosphere, was clean, lively, and fun. I'm glad I stayed & will recommend this hotel to others visiting Cancun. Well Done!

This hotel is on a beautiful beach and unlike most beaches in Cancun, the water is usually quite calm and great for swimming. The pool is gorgeous. The buffet is huge and you would have to be quite picky to not find a few items you enjoy. We only tried one of the specialty restaurants, the Asian one, and it was not as good as the main buffet. We are used to excellent authentic Asian cuisine though, so that could be why we did not enjoy it. Drinks are good but most of the alcohol is not top shelf by far, but you can ask for certain brands (i.e. Bacardi, Cuervo, Smirnoff, Canadian Club etc.). The service is fantastic at this hotel. The only downside to this place is the rooms. They could definitely do with a renovation but if you are only there to enjoy sun/sand/food/drinks that doesn't matter so much. We visited the Riu Cancun for a day and the the beach and pools were very small and crowded and we definitely preferred the Caribe.
