Just to be clear, I'm not a negative Nellie...there are a lot of positive attributes to Mont Caribe Guesthouse. Fernando is an enthusiastic and funny guy. He did a great job of letting us know he would be present for our arrival and making sure the taxi knew where to take us. We did wait, though, for a little bit... More

Walked in there was a fridge and a microwave and two chairs then through another door was the main room with a closet, bathroom and big bed. Another room was attached with an additional... More

We stayed in the Mont Caribe Guesthouse for 10 days. The entree om Sunday Jan.25, 2015 was moderate, but the manager Fernando turned out to be very friendly and helpful. The room with kitchen and bathroom-shower in the guesthouse was clean and equipped with all the necessary things. Also the primary things like salt, sugar, milk and bread were available.... More

Came down here with family and friends for a cruise and we decided to arrive a few days early. This has been a fantastic spot. The host is a very good guy: friendly, funny, and will take care of you. He gave us a tour of the area when we got checked in showing us where to go to eat... More

Fernando is a great manager. He has a friendly staff. The rooms are well kept and great for the value you are paying for. The cleaning lady comes after every other day. Has rooms for groups of 4-6 as well. So if you are on a budget and in a group, this is your best option. 3 blocks from the... More

This place was within our price range. $60 a night. Fernando the owner was very easy to talk to when I called to make... More

Although this guest house is not luxurious, we found it clean, safe, and handy to everything. We stayed there 3 nights and would stay there again. The manager Fernando, waited for us to arrive after normal business hours. He took us on a mini tour of the area and gave us great advice on the whole area, including great restaurants.... More

My experience at the Mont Caribe Guest House was good. For the price it was very good. The property needs some work but you are on a island near the ocean and near night life so it didn't really bother me.The owner Fernando is very nice and respectful towards his guest.If you're lookin for a vacation on a budget than...

We were warmly welcomed to the hotel. Fernando is a nice guy who seems like he genuinely does care for guests here. On arrival into our room, we were greeted by a big cockroach... Fernando quickly tried to hide this and dispose of it. The same happened when we used another room later during our stay - there is obviously... More

Our friends from Australia that stayed in the guest house for two nights are right in some aspects. It was a very bad day for us here and for the Ocean Park community. There was a shut down in the water system, which meant we didn't have water for almost one day. About 25,000 people didn't have water in this... More
