Caribe Beach Resort was a pleasant surprise. The grounds and especially the pool were beautiful thanks to the hard working maintenance crew. The resort offered free beach bikes that could have used some TLC. The beach was incredible with millions of shells covering the shore. The weather was absolutely perfect with some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The only suggestions I have for management is to spray the rooms more often. We were greeted with a roach the first night. Also the beds were on the hard side. All in all a very nice place to visit at a very reasonable price.

Check in/check out was super easy. We stayed in an efficiency, small but Ok for 2 people and a dog. The resort is low key and great location. We had sunrise and sunset view every day from the beach. Big beach, easy to social distance since there were hardly any people there. Pool area is very nice, used the jacuzzi every day. Everyone (guests and staff) were all extremely friendly. The unit had all the supplies: paper towels, toilet paper, detergent, garbage bags, coffee filters, beach chairs and umbrella. Gas grills are available throughout. Beach towels and bathroom towels can get exchanged one time on Wed mornings. Bikes are available on site. It was a very pleasant experience and LOVED that it's pet friendly. Wish we had more pet friendly resorts.

A fire alarm went off in Building A at 2 a.m. our first night and went off at 2:30. We never had any communication sharing what happened. The next day, we had no hot water and didn't have any for the next 4 days. Again no communication from the office. We did find maintenance men who shared what happened. Very disappointing that they couldn't inform the 14 residents in A about timeline and issue.

Check in and out was very easy. Unit was as described, small but perfect. I was there by myself with my dog. Very pet friendly. Location was on first floor with only about a 1 minute walk to beach. Beach was not crowded which made social distancing very easy. I didn’t use the pool but it looked very clean. Staff was very responsive to my needs. Beds are the only thing that could use improvement. I tried both the Murphy bed and the sofa bed. Of the two, I would have to say the sofa bed was a little more comfortable.

Caribe Beach Resort is a small property that provides practically everything you need for a wonderful beach visit. This property is a timeshare property and rooms are almost always available directly by calling the office. It cost about half as much to stay here as anywhere else on the island. Most of the units are efficiencies with a queen size Murphy bed and pull out couch. This unit will sleep four, but are most comfortable for two. The furniture is comfortable and Florida style. I love the fact that they provide free beach umbrellas, chairs and bikes, you can enjoy the hot tub late into the evening. Their location on the beach is really special and that you can see both sunrise and sunset. Today I saw dolphins frolicking, and collected a beautiful bag full of shells, then a relaxing dip in the heated pool while grilling poolside. This is not a new fancy-schmancy hotel, this is an older property in excellent condition. The staff is terrific.
