    Incredible

    I stayed at the RIU in August of 2005 and I was blown away by every aspect of the hotel.
    I have been going to Cancun every year since 1996-1997, stayed at many different hotels and I have to say that the RIU destroyed all the others.

    I totally recommend this hotel.

    It all sounds great, and I'm counting the days till I go in May (first timer). Just one thing - we've booked through a travel agent and the booking form says 'double room' - trouble is there are 3 of us - myself, O/H and son (18 years old). Surely they don't expect us to all share the same room? :oops: :shock: What happened to privacy? :wink: I've emailed the hotel direct to clarify, but haven't had a response as yet. HELP!

    unless you requested two rooms and paid for two rooms, i doubt you will get two rooms...you will get one room with two beds

    Slim

    If yuo apply for a riu club class card - via their riu site u have a chance of getting upgraded to a suite room when u get there

    its worth a try and its free

    would give u more room than a normal room

    Unless they are already staying there....I found it extremely difficult to bring anyone from outside the resort in....So get your drink on at the pool bar, meet some people, hit the clubs, and then catch up with them when you get back.

    I have stayed at RIU 4 times and seen guests try to sneak in people. Every time they get caught. You can bring in someboody but it will cost you. RIU charges arond $100 per day for this. Also, don't loose your towell card ($25) or wrist band ($100).

    Yeah you'll be in the same room, otherwise your son would have had to pay a single supplement, meaning a buttload more money for him to have his own room. Send your kid off to the bar if you want to get some nookie :wink:

    RIU Cancun or Caribe

    I'm torn between these 2 hotels. I'll be going 29May - 02 Jun with 2 teenagers (17 & 19) Which location is better?
