“GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2006

We just retuned from the Caribbean Princess on 03/10/06.What a great place for a family,it offers 2br condos right on Orient Beach. The condos are spacious and clean and have full kitchens as well as a large living area.
Only problem is most cab drivers don't know where it is. Its part of the Cap Caribes Hotel,thats where you check in. Fred and Alexandra in the office are great they can get you a rental car or give you tips on excellent restaurants.
Orient Beach is one of the nicest beaches in the world.Stay here and you won't regret it. Can't wait to go back.

We rented a two-bedroom unit at the Carribean Princess for the spring break vacation and had a wonderful time. The condos are managed by the nearby hotel but have their own property with a pool and are just across the parking lot from the beach. The unit was very spacious, with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a full kitchen, a large living room, and a patio/deck with sliders. The staff is very helpful and friendly, cleaning service is provided daily, and the unit is well maintained. Orient Bay is a very nice community, with lots of restaurants within the walking distance along the beach. The hotel/condos have agreements with several restaurants to provide free beach chairs/umbrellas to guests. Rent a car to see the other parts of the island and enjoy the great restaurants on the French side. If you are looking for a beach vacation without a large resort experience, this is a great place to stay!

I stayed at the Caribbean Princess from 4/20/04-4/26/04 and loved it. The suite was very large with cathedral ceilings and a huge balcony with a gorgeous view of the beach. The rooms were large and comfortable. We actually booked a one bedroom but were given a two bedroom/two bath suite. It had a full kitchen including a dishwasher and microwave. If we happened to leave a dish or two in the sink the cleaning woman would wash them for us.

The pool was small but being on the beach it was no big deal. There were plenty of water sports available footsteps away. A short car ride will take you to many great restaurants but there were several withing walking distance.

My only complaint would be that they have a sign that says "reception" but you have to go to the hotel next door (Cap-Caraibes) to check in. It would have been nice to know that ahead of time. It was extremely clean and quite in the evenings. Would absolutely go again and have recommended it to several friends.
