We stayed 4 nights at the hotel Caribe. It is placed in the chic neighborhood of Bocagrande, next to the beach (the beach is not impressive there). To go to the old town, a taxi can be called from the hotel station within 30 seconds and costs 6000 pesos (2.5 euros) t get there.
The rooms are okay, the bathroom could need some renovation, the wifi access is very poor. The swimming pool is super (temperature warm and relaxing). The breakfast is diverse and the juices change every day. We really enjoyed our stay there!
