I very much enjoyed our stay here. Laying in a hammock and listening to the wildlife around me while I read was amazing. The room was comfortable, but a bit rustic if you don't enjoy that. The staff was kind and attentive, but out of the way. The restaurant was a bit over priced, and the food was average to... More

Stayed here this weekend for the surf tournament. We had a extra child decide they wanted to come with us, so we upgraded to a larger room. The upgrade rate was more then double the original cost of the room. The tv only got four Spanish channels and no internet in rooms. Super clean rooms, comfy beds. Very tiny bathroom.... More

Tons of black and green dart frogs around the grounds and crabs. We also got a saw a strawberry dart frog. Overall... More

We stayed at the Cariblue Hotel on January 14, 2015. The room they gave us #123, was awful. I have been in better youth hostel rooms than this one. The room had two small twin beds. The one bed was up against a window and near the pillow was a spider web with several spiders, there were also ants crawling... More

Dear guest, thank you very much for your time and for your comment. It is normal in the tropics for small insects to enter the room, even though housekeepers clean every day under defined standards and daily supervision as well. Another important aspect is that the maintenance of a hotel in the tropics is constant, proof of this is that... More

Let me start by saying that I am a very reasonable reviewer and seldom if ever give a "poor" rating. We had high hopes for this place. If you check my other reviews you will see I don't like to bash establishments since this is how they get business but I feel my review is fair based on our experience.... More

But they never give you the discount that they tell you about. They only want the advertising. We're going to stay three nights but went somewhere ells. They do not live up to their advertising. Stay away from liking them on facebook

Dear Costumer, Thank you for the review, we are sorry for the misunderstanding with the discount codes; this is a moot point since those FB codes were effective only during certain periods of the year (green Season) and finished within the peak season 2014, new promotions will be soon available on our web page.
