                Nice hotel, very good location. Historical style with beautiful yard and pool. Staff are nice. Good foods and clean room with beautiful view.

                English need to be improved, can not believe a 5 star hotel do not sell stamp. Some people are not very willing to help.

                The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool area was wonderful.

                The service at the pool cafeteria was slow, it took a bit too long to get the food.

                The biggest shower-head I have ever experienced! And a fantastic king-size bed.

                Probably I prefer smaller hotels, myself.

              • Single
                7.8

                Cleanliness of rooms - hotel staff kept rooms really clean & tidy. Plus in a highly Spanish-speaking country, some hotel staff (mainly ladies) made a better effort to speak English.

                The hotel, from the outside, is not as beautiful as it is made to look in the pictures online. In reality, it looks substantially untidy & outdated, but the inside compensates for what's missing on the exterior. Perhaps, the fact that certain sections were undergoing re-plastering & re-painting made the problem worse than it really is.

              • Group of friends
                5.8

                The pool was great & steam suna was good. Also out door resturant with barbeque & music was nice.

                Breakfast was served for short hour & the food veriety was not too many. the staff did not speak english very well & they were not curtious to the guests.

                I love this hotel for the price. Staff is friendly. The pool are is excellent!

                WiFi an consistent issue, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. They charge 18000 pesos to carry my bags which is not good on my way out but I had no time to argue it. Hotel is large so it is a long walk to my room.

                My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Caribe this past August while visiting a family member. We felt comfortable, safe, and had a great time. The hotel was very clean, the food good, and the staff was very professional and friendly. I would recommend the hotel to other travelers. Loved the very large pool.

                Close to everything, good location, clean room and friendly staff.

                I wouldn't say it was a 5 star but good location, services.
