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

If you want to get away...THIS IS the place to go. I'm reluctant to mention it, because I don't want to blow up my spot, but it's just that great. R & R...that's what it's all about. Pleasant drives, wondrous beaches, great food, and shopping. Do everything, or absolutely nothing. Your soul will thank you. The resort is simple. Something... More

We were able to get a week stay in the 2 bdr Spinnaker cottage in July. The resort was beautiful and in a perfect beach location on West Gulf Drive. The entire staff was incredibly helpful with everything from printing out a Groupon to showing us how to operate the cable box on the TV. The old style Florida cottage... More

I was most fortunate to find a second floor unit available in the building nearest to the beach for a "last minute" booking at the Caribe Beach Resort in early March. This was a "solo trip" to just get away and connect with a couple of friends who were on Sanibel at the same time. What a pleasant surprise! While... More

Most of these reviews are spot-on. Our efficiency condo in the Caribe Beach Resort was clean and had everything we needed for a one-week stay. It's true that the furniture and bedding needs updating. Yes, we're talking Murphy bed and pull-put couch; really close quarters for a family of four, but we were enjoying ourselves too much to care! In... More

Although a time-share owner here for a number of years, we only get to come here occasionally. This is one of the oldest condo/time-share developments on the island and if spacious rooms with every amenity in the world is part of your search, keep looking because this ain't it! The rooms are pretty small (can you say Murphy Bed!!) and... More

My husband, 10YOD, 6YOS, and myself stayed here for a week the summer of 2014. We stayed upstairs in the building closest to the beach. I am VERY sensitive w/my back and the pull out couch was great. The pull down was a bit too soft for me. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small, but... More

We spent a week at this resort in an efficiency unit.It is dated and the efficiency units are very small. However the biggest problem is the beds. They are the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE I have ever experienced in my 10 years of timeshare exchange. We spoke to people who rented the one bedroom units and they said the bed in those... More
