Right in front of an excellent beach, the hotel has comfortable chalets that give you the perception of privacy and calmness. The restaurant is nice and the food was great! They also have a very nice bar just in front of the beach.

We had a really lovely stay for 3 nights at Cariblue Hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and a complimentary drink. The building style was nice with lots of wood and beach-style roofs. Our room was clean and tidy with everything we needed. The hotel felt very, very safe. There was a gate and a guard... More

We stayed at the Cariblue Beachfront Apartment for 5-nights recently.

We spent 5 nights in Cariblue in September 2014 and had booked a bungalow. We were really excited and were greeted with a lovely cocktail and shown to our room.
