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

Great little place in the perfect, I stress perfect location.. Some say it's in a dodgy area but it's seriously not I think these people are just too cautious. The manager Fernando is a great guy and very helpful. Even offered a lift to the airport which was cheaper then the taxi. The place is not luxury but for the... More

When we got to Coqui, Fernando, the manager, greeted us by name and took us on a tour of the area, letting us know where to go and where to avoid. He was extremely friendly! The place was much larger than expected which was nice and the property was gated. The property was clean and very cute. The property was... More

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
