Ol'DukeWe liked the Caribe when we were there in 2003, but, it was very crowded at the pool and everywhere you went. Staff did pretty well to accommodate the many people buzzing around.
meowgirlEverything about the hotel, besides the food, was excellent. The food, however, was really bad--we got up and left the steakhouse and the Mexican restaurant because we were so unhappy with the food.
ecantellnot one complaint! Going back in May 08 for 10 days, can't wait! Spotless hotel, excellent food, and the most courteous staff!
jhulslaOverall this is a good resort. The entertainment staff is great. The food is good for an AI. The rooms need some improvement, the beds are overly hard.
KevinGreat hotel! The lobby however is not aircondionted. Needs to be, because they have great entertainment there, and is a great space to meet and mingle.
acemanworth every penny
weddinginmexicothe RIU is an excellent hotel. The beach is excellent, the rooms and hotel are clean, the food is good and there are tons of choices...we were very pleasantly surprised.
nicolecossarI thought overall, this was the best two weeks in Mexico I hacve ever had!
sameday861Best vacation I have ever had.
gameluverIt is a decent hotel. Do not get a tower room, above all the other rooms. It is a decent view, but the rooms suck. The water was either scalding hot or too cold. The restaurants-decent, bars-good.
