“The Jamaican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Had a great stay. We were on the first floor so the walk downstairs can be a little intimidating and the carpet was a little musky. I loved the location. We were a close drive to everything and the beach wasn't at all crowded. We enjoyed swimming at the main hotel too. We were surprised to find a hole kitchenette in the oceanfront room. It had a mini fridge, stove, oven and sink. They also gave you dish soap and some pots and pans. And a microwave too. We called since we arrived a few hours early and they were able to accommodate us before three. Tat was nice after a long dive with two kiddos.

Room Tip: I would have liked a room off the bottom floor but it was nice to walk out of the patio to the pools...

Dear Kristen I,

Thank you for writing a review on TripAdvisor for the Caribbean Resort! We are pleased to hear that you had a great stay with us. I do apologize that the location of the room is on the ground floor. The nice thing about the ground floor units is that you can walk straight out to the pool. Once again thank you very much for your sincere comments. We hope to see you back here in the future!

We stayed at the Caribbean in the Chelsea Apartments as part of the golf package offered by the hotel. The apartment was spacious with 2 balconies, open plan living and dining/kitchen area and everything we could need. We had clean towels and a maid service daily. Excellent value for money and and a great place to explore downtown, and only 3 minutes walk from the beach which has loads of sun loungers. Only gripe was that we were unable to access the internet during our stay and had to log on in the Starbucks across the street

We are generally budget hotel folks. We found this one on hotels.com in the offseason for a very reasonable rate. We traveled with a small group and the multiple bedrooms here fit our needs and the spacious living area was excellent. Another friend was staying at a newer hotel down the beach (for much more money) and was shocked at what this resort had to offer. The pools and rooms were very clean and the staff was exceptional. The only problem we had was with hallway noise from some college grads in the hallway late at night.

We discovered this place by chance after refusing to stay in the one we booked over the internet. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and modern. We stayed in a suite with a kitchenette. The maid came in every day to clean and change the bedding and towels.They have both indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs and lazy rivers. I really enjoyed the lazy river idea- my first encounter with this. The place is right on the beach with many good restaurants close by. Overall I found this place to be perfect and plan to return again next fall!

We stayed in a 3 bedroom in the Cayman Towers and rented through vrbo. The space was huge and more than enough room for our family of 6. The photos make it look smaller than it actually is. Besides the space, the biggest plus for us was having a big indoor pool and lazy river. Very important if you come in the spring and the outside pools might be too chilly or in the summer when it rains. What we especially liked was that if it's not raining, they open the glass doors of the indoor pool, so you're protected but can still see the outside. Kids loved the lazy river and slide in the outdoor pool. The pools are extremely clean. A baby had an accident in the indoor kiddie pool and it was immediately closed and disinfected.
It was nice being close to everything but not so close that it was noisy. Parking was a bit of a pain across the street and be forewarned that spaces are tight for SUVs and minivans!
A reviewer here posted that the elevators were slow and I'd say the exact opposite. They were one of the fastest hotel elevators I've ever experienced!
Besides the parking garage, the only other downside was that the hotel is dated. It's clean, but the carpet is worn and chairs on the balconies are old and dingy looking. If you're the kind of person who gets freaked out by bedspreads, be aware that they're there, but they're clean.

Dear Regana,

Thank you very much for taking the time to tell us about your past experience at The Caribbean Resort! We are thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful stay with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed all of our amenities. I see that you booked through an outside company in a non-rental unit. The homeowners of a few of our units decided not to put their units on the rental program which means it does not get any updates when we renovate, so the units could look very different from the rest. I would absolutely recommend booking directly through the Resort next time to ensure an updated unit. We look forward to seeing you in the future!

The 3 and 4 bedroom oceanfront suites are great. Each room has it's own balcony.
The only downside it the small parking area for check in and check out. There is a parking garage and parking lot across the street--no issues there. Plenty of things for the kids to do and located near many attractions in that area

Just came back from a week at staying at The Caribbean. This was our first visit to Myrtle Beach. I had booked a month ahead over the phone and had requested an ocean view room. When we arrived we were told our room would be in the Jamaican Tower. Unfortunately upon checking out the room it wasn't what we had expected. Not sure how you go to the other pools from this location-not very central. It would have been nice upon booking to have the towers explained to you and where they were booking you. I did some research before booking but looking on the internet is not the same as being there. The room was updated to some degree, but this tower is off to the side from the main complex and the unit itself is dated. We requested a change in rooms and the front desk staff and manager graciously accommodated us and moved us into the Dominican Tower. This location was perfect!!! Housekeeping all week long was outstanding. When we came back to the room in the afternoon the room had been cleaned. The Sea Captains House for breakfast was great and convenient. Loved having a Starbucks across the road with a nice seating area outside. The pools and lazy river were really nice and always had lots of seating by the pool. I would return to The Caribbean Resort. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: I would choose a higher floor in case of noise from the pool area and for privacy. Loved the ocean v...
