jasonreimerWe have been to this hotel 5 times and are going again in 1 month. Need I say more.
kdog1979well as i visited cancun after the major hurricane years ago gran caribe was back on track pretty quickly and have come to enjoy the staff and returned yearly. i am partial to this hotel.

coyotesurferI was on an all inclusive trip thanks to my job with USA 3000, at my discount price I don't know what it actually would cost an average traveler.
LindaRadI felt the resort was too big and over pack with people. A cruise ship atmosphere.
MiskelSThe Gran Caribe Real is in an ideal position to enjoy the nightlife and also the great shopping in Cancun.
emilyWe had a great stay in this hotel, beautiful hotel and beach! would def go back. dont listen to all the moaners out there calling this place, they must have very high standards.
avacadoaimReally liked the location of the hotel. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The food was average. Would recommend this hotel.
WhenCanIgoA group of 12 friends traveled here in Septe. 2006. Our first AI hotel. We had a great time! No major complaints! Food was good, drinks were awesome and the atmosphere was always fun.
jenmacnccurnVery clean but very busy. Time share people all around. Don't pay for VIP, its a rip off. Most staff are great. Food is the same though every day, need more variety.
cjokasanI personally liked the Gran Caribe Real. We had loud spring breakers but determined not to let them ruin the vacation for us. I would definately pay the extra money for a Junior Suite Ocean View.
