Most of these reviews are spot-on. Our efficiency condo in the Caribe Beach Resort was clean and had everything we needed for a one-week stay. It's true that the furniture and bedding needs updating. Yes, we're talking Murphy bed and pull-put couch; really close quarters for a family of four, but we were enjoying ourselves too much to care! In... More

Although a time-share owner here for a number of years, we only get to come here occasionally. This is one of the oldest condo/time-share developments on the island and if spacious rooms with every amenity in the world is part of your search, keep looking because this ain't it! The rooms are pretty small (can you say Murphy Bed!!) and... More

My husband, 10YOD, 6YOS, and myself stayed here for a week the summer of 2014. We stayed upstairs in the building closest to the beach. I am VERY sensitive w/my back and the pull out couch was great. The pull down was a bit too soft for me. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small, but... More

We spent a week at this resort in an efficiency unit.It is dated and the efficiency units are very small. However the biggest problem is the beds. They are the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE I have ever experienced in my 10 years of timeshare exchange. We spoke to people who rented the one bedroom units and they said the bed in those... More

This resort is very old and tired. Beware if you book the 3 person studio... even though the resort website says all units have a porch or balcony if you book this unit through RCI or any other booking website besides the hotel itself you will end up above the office and laundry with no porch or balcony in dreaded...

We booked a last minute studio efficiency to meet up with friends who have a time share there. Room was smaller than expected but you can't beat a full size kitchen & steps from the immaculate pool area (with bbqs). Friends stayed in the cottage closest to the beach and the loft and "secret" entrance were great. The beach is... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 kids & 75 year old Grandma) + dog went for the weekend to one of the cottages (they have 2 in total) and we were happily surprised with the hotel, the cottage, the location and everything, It is a very clean hotel overall, the cottage was impeccable and had everything that we needed....

We had the cottage closest to the beach and it was gorgeous. The view from the loft was fabulous! Pool was always quiet and very clean. The grounds were clean and maintained. The people at the front desk were always pleasant and were attentive to our needs. Loved it and would highly recommend to anyone!

We had booked this resort through Interval International relying on the reviews being accurate...which to the most part they were. there resort is dated but well maintained. It immediately gives you the feel of the 60's as do many of the owners guests. There are two buildings. Building A overlooks the pool area. Building B is closer to the beach... More

Read all the reviews on this resort because they are true! I knew exactly what I was getting myself into so I can't complain. The staff at this resort is the best. Dawn was so helpful and went out of her way to make our stay satisfying. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the pool is immaculate. Now the bad... More
