I had such an amazing experience at the Caribbean View Hotel in Bastimentos! I was greeted with such warm smiles and genuine hospitality. The rooms were perfectly clean and just the right size. My favorite thing to do was to sit out on the patio with the breeze on my face while I took in the beauty of the Islands...... I got to know many other travelers and watched them dance to the sweet sounds of Island music, most planning to stay for only a few days.... ended staying at least three days longer. I came back home without a tense muscle in my body!
This Hotel is family owned as I got to know the family all by name, they truly made my experience one to remember. Each with a smile on their faces ready to help with any thing you might need....... They are all such warm and delightful people, when I left I felt like family! I have stayed other places on the Islands and the food just does not compare to that of the Caribbean view. I could not get enough of the french toast with fresh papayas, bananas and seasonal fruit. And for dinner the fish, any fish they serve was delicious!
I highly recommend this Hotel to anyone passing through.... One last thing Luis Jr takes you out for day trips, my favorite by far was the Dolphin Bay adventure. I was able to see at least 50 dolphins. Next we went and discovered the coral reefs and on to the beautiful Red Frog Beach. He always has a smile on his face and does not rush your experience.

It truly is a great place for the entire family or a single couple. I cant say enough good things about it!
