We booked this resort based on Trip Advisor reviews and having just returned from 8 nights at the Riu Caribe the reviews were accurate (minus the usual complainers who want to be served hand over foot).
We had two adults and two teenagers in one junior suite (a room with three beds), and it was excellent. Not a fancy 5 star but excellent value for money, great staff, rooms were clean (absolutely no bugs), always something at the buffet for everyone, great pools and beach front, terrific hotel zone location, etc.
I would highly recommend this resort if you like the sound of the majority of Trip Advisor reviews. I won't repeat all the same comments so pls feel free to email us if you have any specific questions.
Overall, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort.
Some of the must-do's off the resort are things like the Pirate Ship dinner cruise (much better than we expected, outstanding for people of all ages), hop on the bus for $1 USD each way and go to the downtown and surrounding markets/malls, pay the $$$ and do the Explor all day adventure if you like to zip line/cave paddle and cave swim, drive jeeps through caves and around the adventure park, eat excellent food at the expansive buffet (no booze, it's a healthy/active adventure park. Beware, you climb very high towers with narrow steps to zip line. It's worth every step! The four of us agreed that there was nothing that we didn't enjoy all day. It's expensive but it's worth it. We were bagged that night!!
The Riu Caribe is perfect for families -- it's very safe and clean -- and just a short bus ride to Senior Frogs (and other bars/restaurants) at night. Good time had by all!
