Just got back yesterday from RIU CARIBE. Construction has started on the new 400 room RIU PALACE PENINSULA. If you are looking out at the ocean from the Caribe, it will be on your right, over by the pizza shack and theatre. Spoke with the general manager, Nickolaus, who reported the construction started 1-5-11 and is scheduled to be finished in 1 year. Construction noise will affect low numbered rooms with even numbers that face outside the resort. I hope that makes sense. For example 510, 512, to about 520.
