“Great resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Just got back and had a great time, food was great, good variety, excellent service and everyone was very accommodating. Will definitely go back The beach is beautiful, The grounds are beautiful and loved watching the peacocks. Did not eat at any of the ala carte restaurants as the husbands did not want to wear long pants. We found the staff are to be very friendly. We asked for an ocean front room and got a jr suite ground floor ocean front and was very pleased.

Room Tip: See Hilda with guest services.

Was there in March,with two 16 year old girls,we all loved the resort,it was clean,the service was excellent,and the staff was superbe!! We went platinum,and I would go the same again if I returned,private lounge,easy check inns,beautiful private beach sections,and many more!! On our trip the girls experienced parasailing,and we went on a country side adventure to visit the schools ,and habitation,the girls were surprised how some families live down there,and came to appreciate even more their way of living in Canada.The second excursions were to visit the dolphins,sharks,sting rays and sea lions,great fun!! The food was good at the resort,and also the variety. The rooms were a good size with a whirlpool massage bath,and we always had extra towels,and also the cleaning lady was very creative with her art work surprising us with a different towel swan daily,the resort is spacious and quiet,but the main lobby is we're you go party at night,and all the nightly shows were great! We did some activities on the beach,such as exercising dancing and others,it's a great resort for family with teens!For sure I would return,loved it!!

Room Tip: Definitely go Platinum,well worth it!!!

I booked this trip for my mother, sister and I as a mini vacation in March 2013. The resort was nice, plenty of pools, beautiful beach, but the lack of edible food was disappointing. There was one large buffet that was very dark, even though almost completely open. The only time where the food was somewhat okay was for breakfast because you could order an omelette. The lunch and dinner buffet was very poor, with minimal choices and tasteless itmes. Even the fruit, pineapple and melons, had no taste. The restaurants weren't any better, the best one was the Dominican Restaurant. Don't waste your time with the Brazilian Restaurant as it was horrible
The rooms were fine. Nothing too fancy but okay for a night's sleep. The pools were beautiful and tend to clear out after ~4pm. The beach was wonderful and the entertainment staff was great. We walked about ~2 miles down the beach to the little flea market shopping area, which was a fun experience. The items there were about half the price than those at the hotel gift shop.
Alltogether, the hotel iteself was good for the money but the food quality was so poor that we would not entertain going back there again. We actually spent less money to go to Riviera Maya in February for the same amount of time and stayed at a far superior place.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on upper floors

If you are considering a special occasion vacation I am happy to suggest that Caribe Club Princess should be at the top of your list for consideration. They went out of their way to make ours exceptional. The service level was top notch and the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed all of the restaurants and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Italian restaurant. Our expectation was that it would be pedestrian like other resorts that we have been to but Mama Mia far exceeded that. Frankly it was as good as, and even better than many Italian restaurants that I have been to in Canada and USA. But, do not miss out on La Cava. It is worth spending a little extra for this wonderful dinner.

This is not the newest hotel in the area but management is doing an exceptional job in maintaining the property so that everything is in working order and attractive. Having been to a large number of resorts I know that this is not an easy task. It comes down to management making the commitment and relaying the message properly to the staff. Kudos to you all. One of the other advantages of the situation is the amazing grounds. Especially for those of us who enjoy a good walk. Separating the lobby from the resort area with a protected area provided pleasant and ever changing surroundings. Even if you only take a leisurely stroll you will enjoy your surroundings. Do yourself a favor and forget riding the golf carts. It really isn’t that far.

To the staff, thank you all for a memorable special occasion.

Room Tip: The resort is laid out in such a way that every room is close to everything.

Got back April 1. Caribe Club Princess shares the lobby, buffett and swimming pools with Tropical Princess. There is essentially one resort with two different name. The only difference is Tropical guests can go to 2 a la carts while Caribe guests can go to 5 a la carts. This is my second time at The Tropical Princess and I would not recommend staying here.

We started leaving a tip for the maid everyday but after the first few days when she never cleaned the bathroom mirror (thinking this was an indication of what cleaning was being done) we stopped leaving a tip. She never cleaned the bathroom mirror for the entire week we were there. The curtains were also falling down and were never fixed.

Our phone cord had a loose connection, the air conditioning did not work one day and the lights another day. They never fixed the phone cord but did fix the air conditioning and lights.

There should be more variety at the buffett.

Service at the buttett, bar service and the staff in general was great.

The lady at the shop wanted me to buy a pack of gum because she did not have $1 change to give me.

The mini golf is in desperate need of repair.

The Entertainment Schedule Board by the pool and theatre was always wrong. The children were very disappointed when The Lion King was not the show on the night that the Board by the pool had indicated! The Front Desk Staff said to check the Board in the Main Lobby. So we did one day - that morning the board said Beach Party but that night it was Ideal Couple. You could not make plans to go see a specific show.

The beach was great.

Walk up the beach 10 minutes to the left to find lots of vendors
