My friend and I almost spent our Florida vacation in this hotel. Service at the front desk was fine. We were given our room key and found our way to the elevator. Should have turned back then. It was dirty and definitely not a smooth ride. We were told we weren't oceanside but had a view of the ocean. What they didn't tell us was that we overlooked the parking lot and 4 noisy air conditioning units. Our small balcony barely had room for the 2 chairs which were old and marked . The door to the balcony didn't close properly. The bathroom shelf looked like an old piece of plywood that was painted and the paint was peeling off. To decide what to do, we took a walk on the beach and came upon another hotel with vacancy (Oceanside Hotel). We asked to see a room and asked about the price. It was comparable to El Caribe and the room was immaculate compared to the former. So back we went to cancel our room. When we tried to use the phone in our room we found we had no phone service! That was the icing on the cake! Thankfully we were able to cancel the room with no payment. Later during the trip I spoke with someone else who was staying at El Caribe. They had a very nice room facing the ocean. Looking from the outside, we had the worst room in the hotel! I've noticed this hotel has had very mixed reviews. If you are going to stay here ensure you see your room first.
