Just got back from a 5 night stay at Careening Cay with my husband and our two kids (ages 2 and 5). It was a wonderful trip, in large part because of our experience at Careening Cay. We stayed in the Hummingbird cabin and it was a good set up for a family. It'd also be good for a group of friends traveling together. We had two rooms, one set up with a queen bed and the other with three twins (a bunk and a single). The cabin was basic but very comfortable. The whole setting of Careening Cay is fantastic - my kids enjoyed playing at the small and charming playground they have and my husband and I enjoyed being able to watch them from the comfort of our front porch. The restaurant/bar is outdoors, beautiful and very good. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The best part of Careening Cay is the owners and staff - Joan and Victoria were amazingly helpful with telling us where to go, suggesting things to do, and engaging with our kids. And they did it all with a warmth that made them feel more like old friends that hosts. We will definitely be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our waterfront paradise is on the island, Isla Carenero. The resort now encompasses 6 1/2 acres of lush, tropical landscaping and over 600 feet of waterfront. Our backyard is verdant rain forest. We sit on a point facing west, which captures the refreshing Caribbean breeze and offers up fabulous sunsets. We are just a two minute boat ride across the bay to Bocas Town. We enjoy the convenience of close proximity to town, yet are removed from the hub hub, noise, pavement, cars and heat, while on our own tropical island.The resort is peaceful and quiet. We have hummingbird feeders throughout. Many different birds, including parrots can be heard singing and conversing in the trees. ... more less
