I travel alone a lot, in addition to being a very healthy eater, so I tend to take a place with a kitchenette to avoid the restaurants. When I checked in, I had been upgraded to a large apartment with two bedrooms. Many slats of glass were missing from the Florida windows and wooden blinds were missing the controls to... More

If you want fancy and lots of service - this is not for you. However, if you want basic comfortable accommodations, prices you can't beat, awesome location, few tourists, and a wonderful host - you can't go wrong with Mont Caribe.

I was pleased to stay at Mont Caribe. The guesthouse is conveniently located in the middle of Ocean Park, next to many restaurants, bars and the 24/7 Walgreens. The rooms are clean and the management helpful and friendly. I will definitely go back.

Two years ago at a crossroads of sorts, I hopped a plane and decided Puerto Rico was the place for me. After visiting this paradise for 14 years, this time I was finally moving there. I booked a month @Mont Caribe Guesthouse as a temporary stop. Fernando, the Owner, responded positively to my request to “take care of me.” Upon... More

My girlfriend and I just got back from a perfect 6 day Puerto Rican vacation during which we stayed at Mont Caribe and had an exceptional experience. When we started booking our vacation we had a very limited budget. At the time that we were comparing places to stay, Mont Caribe had both the best price and the best reviews.... More

My friends and I just returned from a six night stay at the Mont Caribe guest house. The owner Fernando was fantastic and very hospitable and helpful. The place was just perfect for the six of us, not to mention very economical. It had two bedrooms, two bathrooms with plenty of sleeping arrangements for the six of us, along with... More

I stood at Mont Caribe for a week with my 11 yr old daughter. When we arrived to the guesthouse Fernando greeted us with a typical warm Puerto Rican welcome! He was top class! Our original room had a problem with the air conditioner and he told us that he switched our room for us at no charge, we stood... More

Very respectfully we'd like to say that we don't understand why Ms. Santos is unhappy with MontCaribe service. First, she made a reservation for one date but didn't show. After that, she changed the reservation dates like two times. We always honored her deposit and we never charged anything extra...Two times I gave free transportation to her and her elderly... More

We just got back from a 6 night stay at mont caribe. We stayed in room 2, which was a 2 bed 2 bath unit. My only issue was that there was not an actual kitchen, just a fridge and a microwave. Fernando, who is an amazing host, was wonderful to us. For what it is, it is worth the... More

First I have to say that the owner Fernando is Top Class with being accommodating. Ocean Park is ideal for your stay because of its proximity to the airport (7-10 minutes drive) and Condado, Old San Juan and other nearby attractions. I truly felt like home staying there a month and I know other guests will stay the same. Walgreens... More
