We read the reviews and knew in advance this was an older property. We chose this property for the location and would do so again. Overall, other than the bed (frame sagged in middle, mattress not the best), the room was more than decent. We had the efficiency unit with no balcony or patio and would upgrade to the better...

Spent a week at the Caribe for a family reunion. Several families from across the country gather there every year for Christmas in July. It's beautiful. Yes the rooms are small but we didn't spend much time inside. The pool area is wonderful and it's right on the beach.

Location is the most important thing Caribe has to offer. Sanibel solitude is relaxing and awesome! The resort is right on the beach! Other positive attributes include a great staff, clean room, beautiful pool/grounds and beach/biking supplies and being able to bring our sweet Scottie dog. We value a resort that trusts their guests enough to be responsible pet owners... More

I stayed here in July with my mom and 2 Aunts and we had a good time. The room itself was a bit smaller than we expected, but it was cubby. We had the room above the office that gave us a very large balcony that you could see the ocean from. The only problem we had was that the... More

Simple, quiet, perfect location. I like this place very much! Room is good size for a couple, could fit four but it would be tight. Bed is a Murphy. My first experience with a Murphy bed, but my back has not hurt from using it. We were in building A. Nice view of the ocean. We had a good time... More

First time we stay here we stayed in the efficiency and it was way too small for my husband, myself and small dog. The second time we stayed, we got the outrigger which was bigger and private and I would stay here again but they will only allow one dog and we have two.

We stayed her for two weeks, never staying here before. The unit we stayed in was a studio, and sufficient. It has a full kitchen with all normal size appliances. One full bath with a tub/shower. It has a murphy bed, which was fine. I have back issues, and this worked fine for me. We were in the B building,... More
