I'll start off simply by saying that Customs didn't even know about this establishment. In July I had to stay a week at Cariblue much to my chagrin. Dated rooms, with poor lighting, a pool that is not cleaned daily, faulty toilets, faulty televisions, No staff to clean rooms, old dingy comforters, and not even a community microwave to warm...

Cariblue is an abandon dump. The manager Mr. Roy Watkins took advantage of the family frienship with him and promised so many things that he didnot fulfill. This place didn't have the bear amenities such as toilet tissue, hot water , clean linens and towels. Imagine going on vacation and having to buy a hot pot!!!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!!

I only used the dive center at Cariblue, I think PADI lists it as SEAWORLD. I did not stay here, but the owner, Roy Watkin did give me a tour of the place. What I saw was a very quaint, privatley owned, clean little hotel on a very picturesque stretch of ocean. I would consider staying here on my next... More

I dealt with Roy Watkin with Dive Seaworld at the Cariblue Hotel. My girlfriend and I used him for her snorkel and my dive experience in Jamaica. Captain Fox and Steve the dive master took very good care of us. Roy meet us after I our cruise ship arrive on April 21, 2010. I had the information desk call him.... More

PADI shall exclude it from its list. First of all, the air stinks... More

no facilities, no service, expensive, not checked scuba gears, air in tanks with smell, not clean/chlorinated swimming pool, old dangerous/not safe boat. Do not pay up front to the owner - Roy Watkin - he will cheat you

I had been to Jamaica 7 times before staying At the Cariblue, I made a great choice. Total privacy, beyond friendly and accomodating staff,any thing you want is there all you have to do is ask for it from snorkeling/diving to fishing and sunning, anything you want to do, or not is there. I made my own meal plan/and drinks... More
