"Rui Caribe 2 weeks all inclusive "
Rui Carbie Hotel is amazing. Fast check in and luggage was taken by the bell boy up to our room. We had 4 different restaurants within the hotel which the food was amazing, an entertainment team every night, pool foam party every Thursday and beach party every Friday. The Entertainment team were present day and night. Carrying out pool side activities and competitions (which were hilarious) hosting entertainment nights with outside entertainment and also performing most nights in the calypso stage area. The Thompson/TUI team is who me and my partner booked both our trips though- coco bongos VIP & Isla majurees. Coco bongos was worth the experience-had to make own travel arrangements but once we got there about 2100 we sat to the right of the club having free drinks and waiter service, we then got took through the back not having to que outside, sat at our own seating area 1 level up with waiter service the whole night (drinks included) tipping the waiter. Isla majurees was a great morning out we got picked up and got driven to the boat sailed out 1st snorkelling for about 30 minutes then to get some lunch & see the only ice bar in the Caribbean-at the lunch stop there is a mother and baby nurse shark you can get a photo with for 50 pesos which was an amazing 5 minute experience on its own. Then we went to the Isla majurees and hired a golf buggy 600 pesos the guy tried to charge us more but we said no we got quoted 600 and he agreed. I didn't like the golf buggy because there was too many speed bumps on the road, we didn't know where we were going and didn't feel like I seen much in the time we were there. Going back to the strip we went to Carlos n Charlie's which was a nice enough bar however I paid £15 for a medium jack d and Coke in a yarn not knowing the price till after I drank it of course and was quite annoyed about this. Recommendations for dinner out with the hotel hooters, senior frogs & bubba gump. Bubba gump you get a number 2 bus heading away from down town just ask the bus drivers they will be more than happy to help. We took £1000 between 2 for two weeks and this was enough for what we wanted to do. The hotel is all inclusive and everything you need is there but the trips are dear if you are thinking to book a lot of trips I would at least take £1500/£2000. In the room you have optics I was made aware by a friend after the hotel stay we could have tipped the maid to change them to premium spirits if we wanted but we will know for next time.
Definitely go. We have just returned after 2 weeks it was a fantastic holiday. The hotel was beautiful and very clean the maids came in every day fresh towels everyday. Food was brilliant loads to choose from and plenty of it great range for adults and kids, restaurants lovely and clean and staff were great so helpful and friendly. Entertainment was brilliant during the day but my only down point was there wasn't enough entertainment of an evening they need to put more on as the main entertainment in the calypso bar was always packed so sometimes could not get in and as that was the only entertainment on meant there was nothing else to do other than sit in lobby and drink. On the whole it was fantastic all staff were brilliant and they work so hard they are a credit to the hotel. We will definitely be returning. Would give it 95% out of a 100 would be 100% if the evening entertainment was better don't get me wrong the entertainment that was on was good just not enough of it.
we have just arrived home after a fantastic two weeks here the staff are very friendly and always have a smile. The food was of a high standard as what I expect from a RIU hotel. I was a bit concerned when I read some of the reviews but had one of the best holidays in a long time. Hotel is right on the beach and a short bus ride from town. The Thompson reps were brilliant very helpful .A FREE SAFE in room bonus
"Our number 1 holiday"

Pool areas to suit all. Everywhere spotless. Just 1 complaint We had to come home. Will definitely return just sorting the dates for next year.
"some good some bad!"
Well to start off this is my 35th time to visit the Quintana Roo area and I have stayed in 3 star to 5 star hotels so I do have a little experience in this area. I will rate each area from 1-5 and I give it a overall rating of 3.5. We stayed the week of 9/9/2017. 1.check in-I give it a 2 because the young girl checking us in did not know what she was doing and she did not give us any information about the hotel or restaurants but we did get to are room in 15 minutes. 2. The lobby-I give it a 3.5 it was very clean but very very hot! 3. Are Room-I give it a 4.5 we had a corner oceanfront suite it had a awesome view and the outside patio area was huge! The air conditioner was good but not great and the bed was good. No room service! I had to call every day to have my fridge restocked. 4. The pool area-I give a 4 it looked clean but we did not spend a lot of time at the pool because it was very warm by 11 so we spent most of are time at the beach. They do have towel cards that I do not like! 5. The beach area-I give it a 4 it had plenty of chairs and the service was awesome Jose had a drink ready for me as soon as I needed it! The sand and water had a lot of moss and trash because of hurricane Irma for the first 3 days but they cleaned it up as fast as they could also the water was ruff for a few days but that's not the hotels fault. 4. The food-I give it a 4 it was good but not great the pizza down at the pool was very good. 5. The service-The front desk I give a 3 the breakfast buffet at the Albatross I give a 1 because they had no service all the tables were dirty every morning we had to get are own coffee and utensils and sat at dirty tables. The beach and pool I give a 5! 6. The bars-I give a 4 just because they close so early except the sports bar. The drinks are free so what can you say! I would only go back if the price was right I think I will stick with the palaces. I hope this helps!
