My husband and I were looking for a basic hotel, Caravel is located a block from the malecon but from some of the rooms you have a partial view of the beach, not so great but you can hear the sounds of the waves for only $20 a night. Our room was big enough to put another bed, had a fan (other have Ac but it was not that hot while we were there), no tv (other rooms have one), private bathroom, great water pressure, hot water (no electrical shower), room were kept and bed was very comfortable. Wifi in the main level. Place is new, clean, steps away from the action, the personal was very nice. I did not give it 5 stars because there was no furniture but a small nightstand (I need some drawers and maybe a chair) and the hot shower would only last like 5 minutes and then it would get cool again. In another 15 minutes you could get another 5 of hot water.

As you notice we are a new hotel,a clean one,and we have all kind of rooms, air fans,or with a/c,even cable tv.Your room was with sea view,wifi you find it at the main leven,located just a step from the beach and near at bars and restaurants. The price that we have is reasonable,for what we offer and thanks for this,cause in malecon,on the beach,as we are,you cant find that prices! We'll wait your visit again to "our home" soon.

You can't get any closer to the beach that this.Simple,quiet and clean. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and addressed every question and request. Also enjoyed their a/c and plenty of hot water. If you looking for fancy this is not,but we found it very comfortable and will certainly return at the first opportunity.
