Overall, I was very happy with our stay at the Riu Caribe. We walked into our room one afternoon to find a whole team of people doing a quality inspection - we were taken aback at first but appreciated it when later a maintenance guy came to secure the lock on our balcony door.
The resort was clean, the staff was friendly, the pool/beach were sublime, and the food was what one would expect of resort food. We made sure to make reservations for the three specialty restaurants our first morning there and weren't disappointed. The Japanese restaurant had the best dessert (fried ice cream) and the steakhouse was overall the best (the steak was PERFECT and it was so nice to eat outside).
The "liquor dispenser" they have in the room is literally a few bottles of liquor turned upside down with a spigot attached. It's also clearly not straight liquor, which is to be expected from an all-you-can-drink resort. The drinks at the bar were also very watered down or sugary, so that got old really quick.
This was my first time in Mexico and overall, I really enjoyed the experience. I felt safe at the Riu Caribe and had a great time.
