“Honest review for couples:)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Not really an 5 star hotel but if u have children it is a good place to stay

HOTEL - it is really a big resort , as I said not really a 5 star Hotel more like 3 star , they take care of the outside looking but not that much the inside :/ not dirty but neither is it clean :D

FOOD- was my big concern but it is OK u wont starve dont u worry :D

BEACH- take the left side of the beach cuz there are no salesman allowed , the first day at the beach they were annoying me !!! Egypt salesman are very rude and annoying !!!!!

SEA- they got the most beautiful sea and u need to go diving there :))

FOR COUPLES IT ISNT REALLY A GOOD PLACE TO STAY CUZ THERE ARE TOO MUCH RUSSIAN AND TOO MUCH NOISY KIDS

Room Tip: our room nummber was 3103 , choose higher floor cuz of less noise

We could not have been more warmly welcomed by staff at Caribbean world. From the moment we arrived staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and fun with the kids. Our family suite was comprised of two spacious rooms, ours huge, both with on suite bathrooms but behind one front door to the outside world. Our room also had a large patio, whilst the kids didn't - again meaning that we knew they were safe.

The hotel grounds were well maintained, swimming pools great fun and the big pool was good for proper swimming, and the beach is beautiful. Food was inventive, there were freshly prepared specials every night and lots of choice including chips and ice cream in the afternoons which kept our kids happy.

There are designated "relaxation areas" in the grounds where the sales people aren't allowed which are respected. Our only negative comment is that there were very few other British families around, ( almost all other tourists were German or Russian) which made it hard for our children to make friends. This seemed common for all of Hurgada, rather than specific to this hotel.

Me and my 5 and 10 year old girls really enjoyed week in this resort, clean, very friendly with kids and very polite staff. Shame the food is not that good, pasta either overcooked or undercooked in main restaurants but salads were fresh and tasty, also when you'll stick to their egyptian food then you'll be happy, lovely pitas, hummos and Tahina which is served in BBQ restaurant. Italian restaurant La Palma also ok, basic pizza is good, Many thanks to La Palma's always smiling and helpful waiter Mahmud, also great thanks to Amgad in main restaurant. So helpful!!! The cleaning staff at block 11 also great. The staff here work so hard with always smile on faces. Diving centre is just on the beach, very professional, my 10 year old girl started scuba diving there. Had to visit their doctor, who treated with good english my daughters ear ache, also good experience. Animation team as long you'll be in the quiet zone on the beach you can avoid.
Basically very lovely restfull week! Many thanks to you guys!!!

Room Tip: block 11, near the beach and not much noise from disco, had room 11207 with great clening man, sorry...

Had a good week at Caribbean World a while back. Not a big fan of big all inclusive resorts but this one was alright - not too large, really nice beach, good facilities, good swimming pools, good but expensive dive center. Recommended!

Came back yesterday from a perfect week at Caribbean world. We arrived late in the evening, and the hotel had set aside an evening dinner for us. Then we were taken to our room, which was really big and spacious, and clean. The staff is polite and helpful, they provide everything you need, and always greet you with a smile. If you tip a bit during your stay, they will pay extra attention to you, and give you extra good service (at the bar, during the meals an so on.)

The poolside area is a great place to relax, and never felt overcrowded. However we preferred the beach, which is really nice, compared to other hotel beaches in Hurghada. You don´t need to get up before sunrise to get a nicely located sun-bed, there a more than enough, and the beach is spacious and big. The beach (and the poolside) has separate areas, one area where salesman are not aloud, and one area where the animation team have activities for the guest, competitions, dances, volleyball and other sports activities. There is also a great kite center at the beach.

The food is really good and tasty, with different themes every day. This is one of the best all-inclusive buffet we have had during our many trips to egypt.

Every night there are a show held by the animation team. It´s an amateur show, but this is what that makes it charming. If you are a shy person, do not say yes to participate, I ended up on the stage for 1 hour, in a girls against the boys competition, but it was fun. After the show there are activities in the Gazebo bar, everything from music quiz, bingo and karaoke. And there is a disco from 23 to 02.

I can recommend this hotel from the bottom of my heart. If you are a charter enthusiast, you will love it here, with all the activities, and if you just want to relax and enjoy the sun, the silent areas at the pool and the beach will be perfect as well.

Just came back from a great trip to Hurghada, Egypt. We stayed at the Caribbean World Resort in Soma Bay, which is located about 35 minutes drive outside Hurghada Town. The hotel was great with clean, spacious rooms, great poolareas, lots of different shops an best of all- right to the wonderful crystalclear beach. I would recommend to take a taxi or the shufflebus to Hurghada centre to discover the shops and basars there- expecially in the old town area they have a lot of great shops with everything from egyptian handcrafts, spices, souverniers to cheap clothes. The only thing was that the buffet was a little boring some days, but since the hotel also contains an italian and an grillrestaurant it works out well.

Room Tip: the rooms facing the pool with the slides also has a great beachview
