    Please post some pics of your trip when you get back, I am planning a trip for four guys in the late 20's early 30's and having a hell of a time trying ot decide between riu cancun, riu carbe, and grand oasis. We will be going sometime in June so if you have any suggestions let me know.
    Later,
    Brad

    From what my clients have told me, go for the Caribe or the Oasis Grand, since you can use all the Oasis properties when you stay at the Grand, but the Caribe isn't really near the other Riu properties, if I remember correctly.

    My parents just returned Sat 18th from RIU Caribe and they said they actually preferred it over the RIU Cancun. Judging by their pictures I can see why. There was WAY more beach at the Caribe and it looked like the grounds were a bit nicer and more spread out as well.

    Any Former RIU Caribers

    How does the color of the water on the beach compare to say, some of the hotels farther South? I know this sounds like a picky question, and we are far from picky folks...........we usually stay at the Melia Turquesa primarily because of the gorgeous torquoise waters...they have put off booking rooms thru my travel group until 9/1/06. at the Melia.I book thru worryfreevacations and the explanation of the hotel says its bay side.....
    Does anyone that have stayed in both areas see a difference???? All we care about is nice staff, clean rooms, and good drinks ...but the biggy is the beach....we had to stay at the Catalonia after Wilma, which by the way is a heck of a deal, and quaint place, great for snorkeling...but has the blue water..rather that gorgeous torquoise like near the Melia T. We like smaller more laid back hotels compared to the Monster resorts and we are in our late 30's... yes, we party...but not like the breakers do...
    I am contemplating...RIU CARIBE, RIU CANCUN and GOLDEN CROWN.
    Any beach advise ?????????????Thanks guys....Steve this is just the best place ever for Cancun info!!!!!

    The beach and the water is just amazing at the Riu Caribe. I was there just the other week (march 17-24th). Heres a pic overlooking the beach from the pool area. Hope it helps with your decision.
