The Caribe has a fantastic pool and wonderful beds and chill out areas to relax. The staff were very helpful, friendly and cheerful. The rooms were large, newly renovated, clean and fresh. The Hotel grounds and gardens are beautiful and relaxing. The Hotel is close to the beach but a 5 min cab ride into the old City.

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Caribe in early April during Semana Santa, therefore it was quite busy. The best part of the Hotel Caribe is that it is across from the ocean, has mature trees and has a wonderful large deep pool (10 feet). There are lovely comfortable chairs to sit in by the pool and there... More

Our family of four stayed 5 days at this hotel. The pool area is very nice and confortable, rooms are ok, the staff is very proffesional and always smiling at the customers. Employees in the cash and check in area are very nice as well as housekeeper. We recommend this hotel. Prices are not too expensive.

Not a real 4 start hotel, maybe a 3.5 star at best, I got a pretty good deal and I really chose it for the pool area which is really beautiful. it's a $3 cab ride to the walled city and the modern street in front of the hotel has a pretty good selection of local restaurants, plus the Macburguers,...

Our family of four stayed two nights at the Caribe during a two week Colombia vacation. We loved virtually everything about this property. The room was clean and comfortable, however, slightly on the small side for four people. The public areas were outstanding. The pool area was truly fantastic, similar to the pool areas of the large 4-5 star hotels... More

This very old hotel is struggling a bit with ongoing maintenance. However, if you don't look too closely, it is more than fine. The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, the food in the restaurant is good and the rooms, while small by US standards, are ok. Pool area is inviting is the courtyard.
