RIU Caribe or RIU Cancun any thoughts?

Recommended Posts

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 :)

 

Thanks

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 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.

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.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
