Conveniently without small corner book with towels early in the morning which is opposite the restaurant buffet was our small exclusive area without anyone close! Right next to the stairs can not miss! Super ocean color, trademark Cancun For a la carte restaurants of absolute nullity! even disgusting especially the Mexican buffet just right .... well not be too difficult because after Panama and the Westin where everything was great!

Positive :

Our quiet corner, the color of the ocean, latte in the morning, the view from the balcony, water temperature, cleanliness of the room every day and beautiful little animals on the pillows courtesy of wife household

Negative :

A la carte restaurants ...., no BBQ lunch, wine near plonk, noise in the lobby in the evening, probably Canayens the west!

Negative :

It's not a 4.5 * 3.5 * but one. There is no junior suite in this hotel. These are standard rooms with a balcony! no chairs, no table! Do not pay a surplus ocean views, all rooms are oceanfront!! The rooms are very very common and beds were very hard!! bedroom furniture date long! And the bathroom! no comments!! Do not believe the photos you see on sites especially on exit now! it's not that at all!!!!! false advertising! Very small beach and the sun is gone from 14:30 because of the height of the building. This hotel is too far from downtown! If you visit the website and watch the Riu Caribe, do not rely on the number of stars shown as it really is not that and it is not the junior suite it shows!!

Positive :

I'm from quebec and temperature side, we were served, not a single drop of rain in two weeks! The hotel website is very clean, the pool and beach are beautiful. The views of the bay is so beautiful! The tours are offered, however, very expensive (anything below 100.00 us). Us speaking, I have nothing against Americans but, at this time of year, there is that here! It was only four to speak French, including a front desk clerk! The rooms are very nice and well maintained. The service fills personal bars, excellent and it's wonderful that all rooms and balconies overlooking the ocean. Hats off to the Asian restaurant on site, everything is fantastic, including sushi! There is an excursion offered aboard the Black Pearl, it is really worth. Lobster dinner served on board, is alone worth the trip ...

Negative :

I have a less positive comment to make and it's about food. It is good, but nothing more. There are a wide variety of choices, but these meal combinations keeps coming back. Pizzas, burgers, hot dogs and fries are available to all meals (lunch & dinner) and everywhere: (By cons, theme dinners at poolside lunch, are very good (grilled meats, seafood, risottos etc..)

very nice hotel, excellent food at the buffet, impeccable service and friendly staff.

Negative :

AVOID THE ROOMS (JUNIOR SUITE) OVERLOOKING THE LOBBY, EXTREMELY LOUD AS IF YOU WERE LYING ON THE FLOOR OF THE BAR ...

Positive :

Just great: staff, service, food, bar, entertainment, night club outing, cleanliness. It is a 100%. I also recommend the excursion to Xcaret, a nature park fantastic. The Riu Caribe is the only one of Riu Cancun with a real beach with little huts and it is also the less formal then the party more, but rest assured when you are on the beach is complete rest; an excellent mix.

Negative :

Only small downside: The mattress is not super ... but hey, the important thing is to sleep on the beach at sunrise.

Positive :

Staff friendly and helpful The hotel was clean. The bar and pool were great.

Negative :

The beach was very dirty. Staff does not gathered algae. They also had a lot of algae in the water. We went fishing on the high seas The manager offered to go fishing in the lagoons because the ocean was very risky because of the winds. They told us there was the same fish and they were numerous. We left four hours and caught a little fish Avont for $ 450 (4 people). In terms of a la carte restaurants, the steak house was good, nothing more. Always the same menu. The Mexican was ordinary. And Asian (buffet), the sushi was very good, but the rest of the buffet was just ok.

Positive :

WOW! Beautiful hotel. Everything is almost perfect. The food is simply delicious, the rooms are very nice and very clean. The staff is very attentive and facilitators are very energetic. They bring you to party in bars every night. The hotel location is also great, not too in town but not too far along. Buses run every 5 minutes and they are very affordable (about 7.5 pesos to town). Taxis are still very expensive so I recommend you travel by bus. They are also very safe. In short, we had a dream trip!

Negative :

Get up early to have good chairs or palapas on the beach and in terms of range, it really is not great about 4 minutes walk and there are algae coming from I do not know or not too.

Positive :

Food fresh and diverse, beautiful beach well maintained, clean hotel with unparalleled elsewhere. The service is exceptional.

Negative :

Ambient temperature of the hotel extremely cold. The restaurants, etc. Rooms are so cold that passengers must wear jackets so as not to catch cold. We came back with colds and sore throats. Noise; If you have a first floor room, exchange it because you can not sleep. We were awakened at plusiuers times EVERY night by revelers and / or the performance by employees of the hotel.
