Thanks for the help. I already tried searching, but don't have hours to devote to weeding through the reviews and forums. Was just hoping for quick answers from the helpful tripadvisor members. =) Hopefully, I can find some free computer time before we leave.

And I will definitely check out the riubamba.com! Thanks guys!

Stick to Florida, your response was rude.

To the OP , I hope a DE will help out.

Trip Advisor Forum or what? Just sayin...

I have stayed at this hotel many times, I have stayed in the Jr Suite and in the main building and here are the differences between the two:

The Jr suites are in the annex building, the rooms are slightly larger, you do have your own set of elevators (which will help you avoid some lines at the main elevators) The annex building is a six story building close to the pool and the activity areas.

The standard rooms are in the main building which is 15 stories tall, avoid the thirteenth floor the views are obstructed, and also avoid the lower floors - obstructed views, and can be noisy.

For my money I like the standard (double) room in the main building, I do not think the Jr suites are that much larger, and I think you get a better view from the main building. For the best view ask for a room near the center of the V (or close to the elevators) for a more quiet room ask for a room at the end of the hall. I like to be above the seventh floor, from that distance the noise from the pool area (with the patio door open) is minimal.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

In defence of sungod, you’ll get a lot more information via the search box. Never seen a thread yet that covers everything. No need to read hotel reviews, just search the forum on RIU Cancun and ask your question in the search box. Sungod didn’t see the post that said they didn’t have time to read up on lots of threads. Whenever I’m going somewhere new, I just use the search box and only asking questions when I can’t find the info.

Just think it’s a useful tool to use.

I agree with the last poster...the search feature is probably one of the easiest to use, but least used features on this board. The problem is there is nothing on TripAdvisor that recommends a poster (likely to be a first-time poster or newbie) to search. I can see both sides. but how many times do you need to ask "junior suite or not". TA also added "Top Questions" and "Intineraries" not too long ago, and they are also rarely used.
