    We are trying to decide where to get married RIU Caribe or RIU Cancun...

    We Love the beach and have kids that will becomming along so we are leaning towards the RIU Caribe, but we also love the modern look of the RIU Cancun. The Prices are with in 100$ of each other so any info or feed back form anyone would be appreciated :)

      I have only been to the RIU in Ochos Rios, Jamaica and it was beautiful!

      The RIU chain is definitely fantastic!

        I was just married at the RIU Palace Las Americas next door to RIU Cancun. Some of my guests stayed at the RIU Caribe and said that it was very nice. I think that the RIU Cancun is a little more modern as far as decor though.

          I have stayed at both properties. In my opinion the Cancun is better. Feel free to PM if you have specific questions. Cancun location is better too!

            I have stayed at the Riu Palace Las Americas.....no comparison to the Riu Cancun or Riu Caribe. For a few extra dollars I would go with the Riu Palace.

              We decided to go with the RIU Caribe as all our friends voted for the better beach!


              Thanks for all the info :)

                I stayed at the Riu Cancun in June. I loved it! I saw a wedding party and bride put couldn't figure out where she had the wedding. Where exactly did they said the ceremony would be held. Just curious. The location is fabulous its within walking distance. I will show you a picture outside the hotel. It's a mall right across the street. This was taken in the hall of the floor we were on...If you have any others questions you can PM me.

                  Hi, TA Wendy here... I just stayed at the RIU Palace Las Americas and toured both the Caribe and the RIU Cancun.

                  Of all the RIU properties the RIU Caribe is the only one they purchased already built and operating. So it does not look like the other RIUs or have the same Europeany / Spanishy decor. I felt like it was a good option for a lower priced property, it certainly has a lovely position on the beach, with many/most rooms offering excellent views. It also had by far the largest ballroom facilities I saw anywhere if you are looking for large indoor space.

                  Of the two properties, however, I think I preferred the RIU Cancun, just for the look of the hotel in general, beautiful lobby, great pools, restaurants, and fun nightclub.

                  Hope that helps! Best regards, TA Wendy

                    I don't remember the RIU Caribe having many options for ceremony locations when I was there in January. I guess that's only a problem if you don't plan to marry on the beach. We liked our stay all the rooms face the ocean which is a nice plus and the price is good.
