Riu is always nice and clean, food was amazing. All employees were so pleasant and friendly. Love the open bars and restaurants. all was amazing, the only down point is the furniture in the rooms, outdated and about to break. Other than that all was amazing, big thanks to all the staff who was always at service, specially in the restaurants. Planning to return soon.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your time. We are sorry for any confusion regarding your booking. When placing a booking in any booking channel, you always add how many guests will stay in the room. In case you want to add another person to an existing booking, you need to contact the channel you booked with prior to arrival, or advise hotel during check in, to add an extra person. We do hope a part from this that you enjoyed your stay. With our best wishes we remain, Hotel Riu Caribe Online Reputation Manager

Beach was wonderful; snowy white sand and water was perfect. The pools were well maintained and clean. I preferred the quieter pool by the pizzeria since the main pool is a bit loud with activities. The buffet was as expected; better than Golden Corral but certainly not Miller's Smorgasborg. (Pennsylvania people might understand that reference) My bed was surprisingly comfortable and the pillows were fluffy. Loved the towel animals that housekeeping left every afternoon. I think the only "con" was the coffee. There was no machine in the room so I would have to go down eight floors to the sports bar where someone would make me a coffee; hard to do when your eyes are half shut. Overall, a lovely stay with very nice staff.
