Location.
Inspired by Mayan pyramid design, the Riu Caribe Art Deco All Inclusive resort rises between a powdery white-sandy beach and Nichupté Lagoon along the northern edge of Cancún, Mexico. Cancún Convention Center is located three kilometers away.

Hotel Features.
Albatros is a glass-walled, sea-view restaurant that serves international breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets while Maria Margarita presents colonial décor and elegantly prepared Mexican cuisine.

Good6.0
nice family spot - not really for couples/foodies
really great place for families - lots of activities, fun, helpful staff, nice pool and poolbar, nice beach. food was mediocre - in particular, the asian restaurant was really bad. best options were mexican and pizza - seafood didn't seem fresh or prepared correctly, and other dishes were stale or even reused from meal to meal. the room had a nice bed, bathroom was good size with two sinks and great water pressure in shower. was a bit small though, and felt old (lots of drawers and other things didn't work or were broken). Wifi was restricted to two devices which was annoying with two iphones and an ipad. overall, for a couples trip, would probably upgrade to Live Aqua instead. number one priority for hotel - please fix the food!! otherwise, pretty nice overall, but will probably not return.
