My second trip to Mexico and I have to say these Riu hotels are superb! We really enjoyed staying at the Riu Caribe - not one bad thing to say about it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The food was stunning every single day - although we didn't stray far from the...

10/10 stay from start to finish. Where do I begin!.. After reading some of the reviews prior to staying here in the Riu Caribe I honestly have NO IDEA what these people are talking about as the experience is totally different.. We arrived at the hotel welcomed with a cocktail, checked in within 5 minutes given our wristband & room...

Where do I start. Was I happy with my choice... yes. Would I return?... no simply because I don't believe in going back to the same hotels, there are too many places in the world to return to one hotel! There are 2 pools... 1 large busy and loud music. The other was smaller with no music and a much...

Awesome vacation with the girls. The food was delicious. The drinks were great. In the hotel zone but away from the clubs. Quick bus ride into town like 10 minutes max right across from main entrance of the hotel for $1usd. The beach was awesome but hard to find chairs. The activities were great. At night you have to go...

I stayed here for 2 weeks with my partner and it was amazing. The staff in restaurants, bars and accommodation just couldn't do enough or be more helpful. You didn't need to book the A la carte restaurants - if they weren't too busy they would welcome you anytime. The pools were lovely and kept. The beach was beautiful and...
