“Great Beach Front Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

Nice resort that let us check in early and pick up our discounted tickets to Ripley's Aquarium. Very nice double bed room with an ocean view on the second floor(view would have been better higher up-palm trees were blocking it). It was equipped with a stove, sink, refrigerator, safe, and hair dryer. Beautiful beachfront to stroll along and pick up shells(though you need to be out really early to get best ones). It has an outdoor heated lap pool, a regular pool, kiddie pool, hot tub and kid's play area. There is also an indoor pool and jacuzzi on the 7th floor. There is a guest laundry and a gift shop too. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely go back.

I must say first off this was my mistake! I read the bad reviews, and decided to stay anyway. It was a tragedy of a stay for a rather nice hotel, with great housekeeping staff, great food onsite, and great regular employees other than management. The first day was great; check in even late went very smooth. The room was nice, not as nice as the pictures by a landslide, but it was clean and roomy. I reserved the Deluxe Oceanfront Suite, so the kids had room. We got up early first full day, and no issues. By the 2nd day, I realized where the complaints about the elevators being slow came from. Then to my horror 2 out of 4 went down. I called management at 11 pm and was assured they would be fixed by morning. I stayed confident, by Friday still 2 elevators down, and now amazingly a 3rd one down. Now you have 1 elevator, for a lot of people and of course we were on the 9th floor with a 2 year old. Still I was positive called management again, and got assured they would be fixed. Saturday still nothing, walked down 9 flights to go to breakfast, then back up, back down to go to the beach..Wow the 2 year old did a nasty & the pool bathroom was disgusting. Back up with a screaming toddler, to call the manager. Oh sorry miss they won't be fixed till Monday, that's when my attitude changed. Oh they gave me $100 back, off of an $1000 bill, where my kids vacation was ruined because the fact that management didn't want to pay the extra fee to have the elevator repair place come out on the weekend. Which is what I was told at checkout, by another help desk employee. I'm sure they had hefty fines and possibly a lawsuit, because not even the paramedics could get to a stroke victim on the 4th floor on Friday night. I will not make this mistake again I will listen to trip advisor reviews.

I have been coming to the Caravelle for almost 30 years with a group of friends and family to play golf. The value simply cannot be beat. From the comfortable, clean rooms to the excellent breakfasts and the friendly helpful staff, this place is first class all the way but at a very affordable price. This is also one of the very few hotels that offers the Dunes Golf Course as an option. Our group has brought friends from all over the USA to experience the fun here and many have returned with their families for a summer vacation. I give this place two thumbs up.

Room Tip: Get a beach front room if you enjoy watching the sun rise over the Atlantic in the morning.

We stayed at Caravelle on Veteran's Day weekend. Since it's the off season, we got an excellent rate for the room. Arrived in town at lunchtime and they were able to check us right in. All of the staff that we interacted with were friendly and pleasant. We loved our King Efficiency room because we got the 5th floor (Rm 520) and that floor has the largest balcony that the property offers. It was roomy enough to gather with our friends for a drink in the evening. Wonderful oceanfront view from the wall of windows, where we could watch the sunrise from our bed. The room had great draperies that blocked all outside light at night. On the advice of other TA reviewers we opted to stay in the main building since it was renovated in the last 12 - 18 months, and we were very pleased with the decor of the room and bathroom, both of which were very clean. We didn't use the indoor pool or jacuzzi because it was just too chilly that weekend and I didn't have a robe to wear back to the room and traverse the open air hallways, but we did go take a look at them. Our friends stayed ont the 7th floor and were right across from them. They had a double suite ( 2 beds in a seperate bedroom from the living area) which was just as nice as our room, but had a smaller balcony - a cozy size for 2. The 6 story parking garage was very convenient and since we were on the 5th floor we didn't have to use the elevators much. We got the breakfast package and were quite pleased with the volume of food on the buffet. The guy at the omelets & waffles station made fantastic omelets.
We found the location to be an easy drive to the things we wanted to see and do - only a few minutes down to the Skywheel, Broadway at the Beach and the Convention Center where we attended the Dickens Christmas Show which was also great. I can easily see making this an annual event and staying at Caravelle each time!

Room Tip: Fifth floor ocean front rooms have balconies large enough to lay out on and get full sun.
