After meeting with some "Basti" community leaders and Representative Ashburn, we sat down to lunch at the Restaurant Caribbean View. Since there were six of us, we were able to sample a number of items from the menu. We had fresh tuna, burgers, tacos and a number of side dishes, including delicious patacones! The food was great, wonderful value, well-prepared... More

Had a fantastic time here!! We wanted a place away from super crazy party of Bocas, with AC, private, clean rooms. We got that and a family run place full of love and smiles and dancing. Even in the midst of some renovations, this place is a cute gem. And next time, I WILL make it on a full day... More

My husband & I manage 2 US upscale hotels & needed to immerse our selves in "island time" and decompress. Louis, his family & staff, their Hotel Caribbean View and the local population on this Isla Bastimentos was just what we needed! It is very rustic but warm, clean and relaxing. The water around the hotel is murky and not... More

My partner and I stayed here as part of a tour and found the rooms clean enough and thankfully air-conditioned but service very lacking. By family run,I assume they are referring to the clusters of small children running and screaming around the premise. Our group ordered food and waited an hour sandwiches and fries. Not an island I'd have chosen... More

Stayed here 3 nights as part of tour. Hotel is clean & basic. Nothing much to do on Bastimentos unless you are into surfing. However, the lobster served here is great. Had it 2 nights in a row for dinner and due to the fish i wanted not being available the 3rd night, had the lobster again.

We stayed here 3 nights with a tour group, it was a nice stay. Luis and his family are very charming and make you feel welcome. The food is good at the restaurant. Upstairs rooms have a good Caribbean view as the hotel suggests! also has complimentary hammocks. bastimentos island as a whole probably isn't worth a visit so location... More

We had a great time in Bocas; spending part of our trip on Bastimentos at this hotel and the remainder in Bocas Town. The food at this place was great, the owners were friendly and kind, and it was overall a great experience! I agree the accommodations are basic, "rustic" even, but the hotel is at a reasonable price point... More

This is a most beautiful location on Isa Basimentos with very basic accommodations, a small hotel owned by the nicest family. The place is a bit shabby, but makes up for it with cleanliness & excellent service. The food, cooked by family patriarch Luis & assisted by his wife, daughters & grandchildren, is out-of-this-world. We were a group of 10... More

We had an unusual experience, because the power was out - which meant there was no water either. That made it more rustic than usual, but the family that runs the place is great and did their best. Food was very good, and they helped us find a great hike to take to Wizard Beach, cared a lot about our... More

This hotel is ok for the island. The entire island is pretty basic and literally covered in rubbish. The locals have zero respect for their home and have created a rubbish dump. If for some reason you really want to visit this island then do it as a day trip. If you want to stay here then you could do... More
