About Riu Caribe All Inclusive, Cancun

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. The resort, renovated in 2012, provides four dining venues, including some open-air accommodations. Free WiFi is available throughout the property, and an Internet center contains multiple computers with high-speed Internet access. The resort offers an outdoor pool with a children's section, accessed by crossing two bridges. A health spa and fitness center offers work-out equipment, massage and body treatment rooms, Roman baths and a 10-person spa tub. The Resort features after-dark shows, Spanish and salsa lessons, beach soccer and pool volleyball. Complimentary supervised children's programs offer youth recreation while parents explore life on the island. Babysitting service is available for a surcharge.

Construction above room
Starting at 8am they were doing construction above our room I tried dealing with it until I wanted to take a nap. I decided I had enough. The front desk told me there was no construction above us. So I had to video the pounding and the sawing noises and go down to speak to a manager. They moved us to a smaller room and smaller balcony. The food and the drinks were good. The pool staff and wait staff were all very nice and eager to please. The new room had a very hard bed. I had requested a king bed but they had given us a double when we arrived. They did give us a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Seaweed is a problem in cancun right now. The hotel would have had better reviews if they didn't lie about the construction and they should have never put us in a room with construction above us. Other than that the hotel was nice and clean. Staff was nice.
