“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I went to these apartments for 5 nights, we were abit dubious after reading some of the reviews but I noticed on here that somone said it is a 1 star hotel, and in that case, it was a really good standard!
The cons for us were that there was no air con, and our shower was full of beach stones when we arrived which we reported but we had to report it 3 more times before it was fixed on the 3rd day! So for 4 girls without a shower was hard going!

The staff were friendly, but there isnt always someone around if you need help. The outside balcony areas were really nice but you have to keep the noise down after 11pm, but we were too hot to sit in the hotel room itself!
Nice little pool area and ice cream hut/reception.

The 120 euro deposit is a bit worrying when you read the invoice and charges and how the room needs to be left, but we gave the place a basic clean and paid 1 euro for a broken glass and we were fine.

Really good location, so close to the beach etc. We did find that the switches outside all of the apartment doors looked like light switches, so at night you hit them on, then find out that its actually the door buzzer to that individuals aprtment! (there are 2 switches, 1 is a light and the other the door buzzer) That happened to us quite a few times so don't expect anyone to be at your door!

We had a really good time in Loret, and thought the apartments were good value. They were probably glad to see the back of us mind!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

A group of 6 of us, aged 17/18, spent a week here to celebrate the end of A Levels. The transfer dropped us off in the wrong place and we got very lost, but eventually we arrived at the apartments. It was very early in the morning, around 3am but the owner/receptionist was fine with it, and happily checked us in and showed us to our apartment. We had to pay a 120 euro deposit, but we were prepared for this from reading reviews on here, and got it back at the end of the week. The apartment was pretty clean, a few bits just needed a going over with a cloth (e.g. the hob) but we were impressed. The apartment was pretty basic, but for what we were paying, we were really happy. As there were 6 of us, we used both bedrooms as well as the sofa bed in the living room. We found that there was enough storage space, as we mostly just lived out our suitcases, but also enough room to move around. We couldn't have asked for a better location - literally 2 minutes from the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. but the apartments were still set back away from it all, so it was very quiet. We did spend a lot of time in the apartment (although there were only 4 chairs so we had to use the bed as a makeshift chair) and most nights we cooked in - so the kitchen was more than fine to use. Although the pool was quite small, we used it everyday as no one else was, so basically we had it as a private pool. Overall, we found Caribe Apartments to be excellent value for money. We had an amazing week, as Lloret de Mar has loads to offer, and would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone looking for a cheap holiday.

I found this holiday on www.lowcostholidays.com and would definitely use them again for my next week away. My sister in law and I stayed here in April 2012 for a week. We only wanted a quiet cheapie and thats what we got. The pool was quite small and the sunbathing area wasnt huge but it was sufficient for our needs. Supermarket very nearby and beach only 50m away. Very clean and efficiently run. Would defo stay there again. Also the bus station was within walking distance so we were able to get a bus straight to the airport for 12 euros. We were asked for 120 euros for deposit but unfortunately didnt have it as my purse was stolen on the train from the airport. We did break two glasses but replaced them with glasses from the supermarket so there was no problem.

Stayed here for 1 week with friends, we arrived at 1 in the morning and we were told on arrival that a deposit of €120 was needed to cover the items in the apartment, which we weren't told about when we booked but we paid it and got it back at the end of the holiday no problem! Flats were spotless, bathroom especially was really good, very powerful shower! No maid service though so we had to buy our own toilet roll, washing up liquid etc. Location was good, massive supermarket up the road! Apartments are close to main strip but not so close that you can't sleep on a night because of the noise, apartments do have a pool but its very small! Overall very good value for money and a fun stay!
