“It was a terrible inn”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We stayed in room 10 for four nights.
It was very dirty. Nobody changed the sheets for us on the first night. There were many tiny ants in the room. No daylight in the room.
It was loud. The air conditioning and coqui frogs outside were loud.
There were mosquitos in the room. The door was not sealed tightly enough to keep them out.
The cab service was unreasonably priced. Our trip from the airport to Casa del caribe was $22 and from Casa de Caribe to the airport was also $22.
It was the worst Inn we had stayed, but the price was not cheap.
We would not stay here again.

Pros:
- 1 block away from all the restaurants and shops on Ashford Street
- Wifi available

Cons:
- Dirty – the light switches are crusted with dirt and I found a cockroach in the shower
- Broken – the drawers fall out of the dressers when you pull them out more than 6 inches, the toilet lid is cracked, intermittent or no hot water during showers, and the windows didn’t open because the crank is broken
- Loud – the air conditioning is loud and so are the coqui frogs outside
- Mosquitos – the door isn’t sealed tightly enough to keep them out while you’re sleeping… I was even bit in the face overnight
- No concierge service – you will have to walk to a hotel 1-2 blocks away to check-in after hours

I’m not saying you shouldn’t stay here if you are on a budget, but hopefully this will help you realize what you are paying for. I have pictures to back up my review.

This is located a couple blocks from the beach, shops, resturants etc. We stayed in room 13 . It was quaint with fridge and stove, it had three beds ,and a decent sized bathroom. Ed the manager was a huge help on attraction suggestions. The festival in Old San Juan was a blast and want to plan to come back to stay for that!!!! The place has a nice quiet ambiance by day and fun intimate setting for those nights to stay in and socialize with some of the other guests. All in all I would definitely be coming back and staying at the CASA DEL CARIBE!!!!

My wife and I recently made our first trip to Puerto Rico and had an absolutely wonderful time! We do plan on returning in the near future.

We visited Old San Juan for a few days to partake in a little of the nightlife, enjoy the great variety of restaurants, shopping of course and see many of the tourist sites within this area!

We did not rent a car while in Old San Juan because our delightful B & B, The Casa Caribe, was just a short and inexpensive bus trip away from the action. Traffic and parking within this area looks like it can be a real adventure and not one you are looking for.

Cab service was reasonably priced and readily available. Our trip from the airport to the Casa Caribe was $19.00

With great advice from the Casa Caribe manager, Ed, we did all the things we had planned and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

The Casa Caribe might not be the most fancy B & B but it fit the bill perfectly for our short stay. Kudos to the warm hospitality of the staff there.

We headed to a more exclusive location, The El Conquistador Hotel in Fajardo which is about an hour away. We did rent a car with Enterprise because this resort is somewhat isolated in this beautiful part of the island.

Our goal was to relax!... Meaning to enjoy the warm sunshine, swim in crystal clear water, lay on the beaches at Palomino Island and hike the El Yunque rain forest.

We did much more and were glad we did! (Bio Bay, Zip Lining and exploring !)

Each day we enjoyed the wonderful hospitality at El Conquistador but also went off grounds to visit small local restaurants, walk thru a small town, shop and enjoy conversation with many of the locals. One particularly wonderful dinner was provided by a restaurant called Metropole about 15 minutes from El Conquistador. The waiter, JAY, offered to select our menu which would feature local seafood dishes and specialties. We followed his advice and enjoyed it immensely.

What a great vacation! Puerto Rico does it better!

We had a wonderful time staying at Casa del Caribe with our families over the Christmas holiday. Ed, the owner, was very helpful in answer questions about the area and recommending restaurants. The B&B is a block from the beach and right near the main strip of Condado shops and restaurants. Since there were 8 of us, we reserved the entire second floor. It was perfect for us - separate rooms for our parents, and a huge shared room for the "kids." Breakfast was light - cereal, pastries, and really delicious coffee. We were all very happy with our stay and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a very convenient and especially affordable place to stay.

Room with no daylight, old carpet, bugs and cockroaches. Breakfast is a joke, donuts and really bad coffee.... There are several much nicer boutique hotels few blocks away for a much better rate (hotel casa condado)....

This place was what made my trip really perfect. It has everything you need and nothing you don't. Very centrally located close to everything. It's a great value and the staff are extremely helpful. Staff member Oscar was so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend it.
