Riu Hotels and Resorts has relaunched one of its top all-inclusive resorts after what the company called a “complete refurbishment.”

The Riu Caribe has reopened after several months of renovations, one that included new looks for the common areas, restaurants and guest rooms. 

The renovation covered the lobby, lobby bar, rooms, restaurants, and the poolscape.
