Positive Reviews

Friendly and engaging staff

The atmosphere at the Hotel Riu Caribe is helped along by its friendly and engaging entertainment staff. Guests reported that staff go out of their way to make sure that guests are comfortable and well-looked after.

Beach just metres from the pool

With the beach just meters from the pool, guests are able to take full advantage of all that this 24-hour all inclusive resort has to offer. In the heart of the Zona Hotelera area, the hotel also offers guests the opportunity to discover other local beaches, shopping centers and bars.

Drinks on tap!

As you would expect, there is a wide variety of drinks on tap at virtually any time of the day and night at this 24-hour all inclusive resort. Guests will not be disappointed, be sure to ask for your favourite cocktail.

Negative Reviews

Sun-bed dance

A number of guests to the hotel have commented that they were frustrated by the daily ritual of having to wake up extremely early in the morning to place belongings on a sun-bed by the pool to secure a spot. Notwithstanding that the hotel policy goes against this practice it is not enforced. It seems that if you don't get in just after dawn you will not be able to relax beside the pool all day!

Food less than tasty

Notwithstanding that there is a variety of food ranging from pizza, pasta, Asian, salad and deserts, some guests reported that they felt that the food was of average quality and that the standard was not what they were expecting.

Lack of Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is only free for guests in the lobby of the hotel. Whilst you can pay for more access, the lobby tends to become overcrowded with people milling about trying to get online at the same time.
