Riu Caribe Trip Advisor suggets additional research

Me and my family are traveling to Riu Caribe Cancun in June. Does anyone know any recent negative news that was posted about the resort? Trip Advisor just flagged the resort today for suggested additional research.

Don't have any idea what that flag is about. I went with my family and stayed for 6 night during Easter week - we had a great time. No concerns then. Great beach and good food. We had a great time.

I’m at the Riu Caribe right now and I don’t know why this message is on trip advisor. I do know that the Riu Cancun was the hotel where the vendor was shot on the beach so it may be related to that. All I can say is everything’s great here and feels safe. Hope this puts your mind at ease.

"I do know that the Riu Cancun was the hotel where the vendor was shot on the beach so it may be related to that"

This is where we stayed as well.

I just read a review on the Riu Caribe about tainted or drugged drinks. Its dated May 8th. I assume that may be the reason.

This is really alarming - i already have booking in 12 days and this is not good... here's the review that is possibly the cause of the TA flag: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-…

I wonder why this review is by "A Trip Advisor Member" with no screen name? They also gave a 3 star rating which to me is quite shocking considering the information in the review.

The warning sites recent media reports. I found this long report that named several resorts including the Caribe that was updated the end of March. I'm not sure if this is what they are referring to. https:/…

I have seen SO MANY drunk people on holiday.

They sit at the swim up/bar and take shots AND other drinks for hours. Not to mention it's 100 degrees outside.

Then they're concerned because they can't walk? No kidding you can't walk!
