“Just checked in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Nice clean hotel for 499 pesos includes free internet, breakfast and parking for your car in a secure off street area. I am travelling alone and wanted to make sure I was in a safe clean place. As I did not have a reservation, just happened on this place. Would not stay here more than a day but ok if you need a place enroute to Belize.

Room Tip: No amenities except air conditioning which is really good down here.

Just an overnight hotel, fairly clean, fairly friendly and fairly good breakfast, off the next day into Belize which had much lower hotel-standards and was very unsafe compared to Yucatan!

Only good if you are traveling for business. No swim swimmingpool, under construction and absolute no friendly staff.
Breakfast even worse!

For holidaytrip in this area go to lagune Bakalar for a hotel.

We have stayed at Caribe Princess before and in different type of rooms. The location is very good and taxis available at any time. Lobby is nice and they had this continental breakfast included which is not bad, is just a little something to begin the day.
The rate is not bad at all, is definetely for a budget place compare to other hotels in the area but is not definetely a bargain.
The rooms. The ones located on the third floor are the one that has been renovated and look much better than the one located in second or fist floor.
The main issue here is maintenance, they need to have touches of paint, fixing in bathrooms, the shower curtain holder keep falling down if you pulled to strongly the shower curtain, not to mention it takes some time for the hot water to come.
In the bathroom you do not have decent size towels, there is only a couple of them to get dry, average medium size.
The matress are too firm, not very comfortable actually and the quality of the linen is just very average, and not enough pillows, not to mention they are not even goose down, but some polyester material that got totally flat and not very comfortable.
I mostly go there for one night and do a late check in, so I just want to go to bed and enjoy a nice sleepy night, which for the reasons above mention have not been possible.
I really hope they can work out this issues they have a lot of potential.

Well, for someone that is used to staying in Holiday Inn Expresses around the world, this place is really a dump. For someone with low standards, looking for a place to sleep and a cheap hotel rate this may do. At first glance, the lobby looks pretty decent. The hallways even look OK but then you get in the room and its pretty third world run down. Furniture is about as worn out as I've ever seen in a hotel. Door leading into the room has to be about as challenging to break into as having no door at all.
The air conditoning worked well and the mattress gets a C for comfort. The water in the shower takes about 15 minutes to warm up and I had room on the first floor.
If your on a budget and don't mind a run down dumpy hotel room, this is a good choice.....but I am used to a significant step up. This makes most hotel 6 and 8's look good. Never again....

The Hotel Caribe Princess is affordable and an excellent option for the price. It is located at Downtown Chetumal yet it is very quiet. The staff was very friendly and ready to assist us. The rooms are big enough to fit in comfortably. The only inconvenience we had is that it takes a while for the hot water to start running...
I would definitely recommend this hotel for people on business or pleasure trips.

we stayed here for one night, after we had to leave another hotel for having bugs. This was much better for us. It was a decent price, had air conditioning, comfy and clean room with tv, and within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. We would stay here again.
