Got back from 2 weeks at the Riu Caribe on the 23rd.. Can't fault the hotel at all.. really enjoyed my stay there with my girlfriend. There's lots to choose from in all the restaurants, there is 2 places to go for breakfast and dinner - lunch/tea is either the 1 buffet or the 3 a la carte's to choose from. After about 10:30pm you have the Sports bar to get food from - they do snack like burgers, hotdog, sandwiches and nacho's. You can also get any drinks you want in the Sports bar 24hrs a day! There were some superficial work being done to the hotel when we were there but nothing to spoil our stay. They were starting to make some "umbrella's" on the beach the last few days we were there and also they are doing something with the roof of the restaurant by the pool/beach - think they are going to put a thatch roof on it. As previously mentioned there is always staff cleaning, sweeping and polishing and always give a friendly "hola" as you go past.
