Great location. Room is cleaned well with a fantastic ocean view from the balcony. Beds are comfy & the bathroom is spacious. Staff are friendly & helpful. Great restraunts across the street & coles just down the road. Will return next time I'm in town. very pleased.

I have stayed at the Caribbean 4-5 times in the recent years and loved it every time. The rooms are always clean and unfussy and offer everything you need. It's proximity to the jetty, the beach the Pier Hotel, Old Johns (brilliant coffee!) makes it a fantastic place to come "home" to at the end of a working day.

The room looked more like a hotel room, so tidy an clean, not too typical for a motel. The friendliest and welcoming staff, felt like home stay. Shops and cafes are walking distance (Old John's cafe is a must) , so is the beach. Strongly recommended for a short stay.

Located close to the Jetty and within walking distance to a good choice of restaurants. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious even with our 3 kids. Would definitely recommend good value mid point motel and we will stay again.

Great location close to the jetty. Excellent friendly and helpful staff. Can be a bit noisy at night when people are returning to their rooms and early morning when people are departing. The hallway is tiled and it echoes quite loudly. We had a queen room which was clean and tidy and nicely made up, just a bit on the... More

Coffs is well known for its resorty type places but after checking a few out and giving a polite 'no thank you' we find ourselves at the jetty and offered a look at a room here at the Caribbean. A lovely welcome and friendly hosts showed us a room that ticked all the boxes. It was bigger than we needed... More

We drove into Coffs Harbour at around 3:30 not realizing it was school holidays. We found our way to the jetty district (by far the best area of Coffs, but more about that later) and started asking for a room at various hotels in area. No luck but drove by Caribbean Hotel and saw Vacancy sign. We were given a... More

Clean, tidy, modern, a little quirky in a good way, excellent parking, opposite the Jetty Strip( restaurants), friendly enough on the front desk and all at a reasonable price. Was a little noisy for a period with the hotel over the road but not obtrusive and you cannot help that when you get people who drink to excess and think... More

Stayed one night for dance eisteddfod. Hotel was clean, perfectly located and the staff were super helpful and very nice. This motel is small and cosy but ticked all the boxes for what we needed. All the restaurants and conveniently located across the road.
