We went all inclusive with our children ages 9 & 3 for 2 weeks from 5th of June until the 19th. I wasn't sure at first after reading some of the reviews at first but as soon as we got to the hotel the staff couldn't help enough, our room was ready on arrival and there was food being served.
The hotel is really clean yes the rooms are small but I wasn't there to sit in my room all day!!
The bar staff are fantastic and they don't only let you have 2 drinks at a time my OH went and got us all a few drinks each and came back with a tray full of drinks for us and he said the bar staff were really nice n chatty.
The meals were lovely and every other night they did theme nights like dishes from around the world .
My son cried at the end of the holiday because he wanted to stay with kids club they were so good well done alex and team.
And the entertainment staff worked so hard and they put on some really good shows we'll done Jay and team!!
We will defo be going back there at some point.xx
P.s make sure you take an iron because you don't get one in your room!!

Hya just back from caribe. Please dont listen to all the moaners and bad reviews ? Food to die for soup chicken dishes cottage pie chips, sweets are excellent yum x tubs ice-cream sprinkles. Eves pudding custard rice pudding. English breakfast cereals, toast even got black pudding sausages really good. If you half board you get barrels of lager red and white wine as much as you want but not good brands but its a drink x cleaners does 100 percent job cant praise them enuf well down. Plenty sunbeds but please use good towel as beds not comfy. Pool at hotel brill and reps are brill fun, music at your ears but not all day. Had a really lovely stay at caribe well worth money from thomas cook. As we arrived had to wait for couple hours but not problem as we went to eat down beside beach at your doorstep, beach very nice but 15 euros for bed and brolly not cheap. Would stay at caribe again es cana lovely nice place. Do not let reviews put you off xx enjoy cuz we loved our holiday and stayed for a fortnight. Sunny ibiza we will miss you....

Room Tip: Request and email hotel for pool view but never got one.

We stayed at the Hotel Caribe between 12th & 19th June. And although I appreciate that everyone has a different idea about their holiday, for us it was fantastic. Let me start with the cons:

The room WAS a little small, but then, we were hardly in it. The all inclusive beer came in small plastic cups - so I just ordered 2 at a time! Our view wasnt exactly picturesque, but the rooms on the other side of the hotel were. After all, this is only a 3* Hotel. Friends of ours came over from their 4* resort in Saint Eulalia for the day and were more impressed by Hotel Caribe.

I was there with my girlfriend and 4 year old daughter and we had a brilliant time.

The hotel was spotless. The pool was big enough to cater for everyone there. Plenty of sunbeds (agreed, if you didn't get down to the pool area early enough you didnt get a poolside lounger). All the kids (and there wasn't as many as some made out) were all well behaved. After all, is this a family friendly hotel. Couples looking for a romantic holiday may want to chose a different Hotel.

I thought the food was varied, tasty and plentiful. A good balance of Spanish and English. A wide enough choice for to please everyone. Plenty of drinks to chose from. Plenty of fruit and plenty of desserts.

The restaurant staff were pleasant, and attentive. I only had to queue once at the All Inclusive bar, for about 2 minutes. As for only being allowed 2 drinks at a time, We were ordering 5 or 6 at a time for the people we were talking too plus ice creams for the kids and never got challenged about it.

The animation staff were just fantastic, especially with the kids. Plenty of activities during the day & evening. A really friendly bunch of people, and most importantly, my daughter LOVED it. She was kept entertained all day and night, and that was important to us. Kids disco, Kids club, actvities, award ceremonies, live music and a bit of adult humour. For us, it had it all. The Hotel staff, the animation team and all the Thomas Cook team were very friendly & helpful.

The other travellers were also all very friendly, and met some really great people.

Es Cana itself is probably my favourite resort in Ibiza. Fairly quiet, great bars & restaurants, easy to get around. The beach is really lovely and literally a 2 minute walk away.

We only booked a week before and were a bit anxious but we found it to be great value for money and a great holiday in general.

Pros-
Value for money- Fantastic value for money, we paid £220 for the two of us half board for 4 nights, about £25 each a night...excellent value.
Staff - every member of staff we came across was friendly and helpful!
Food-great choice, bit same same each night but plenty to choose from. Also Half board guests get drinks with breakfast and dinner, including San Miguel, wine, soft drinks, sangria etc...
Location- 2mins from sea, shops and bars

Cons-
Rooms-very thin walls, we could hear everything next door was saying, loud banging of doors in the corridor and people talking in the night on their way past.
Shower-No water pressure at all!
Sun loungers- Most were taken at the crack of dawn, also very basic and plastic -not very comfortable..
Children- We went out of the school holidays and there were loads of children at the hotel, so if you want a more peaceful holiday then I wouldn't recommend this hotel, but that was only ever a problem around the pool area, if you sunbathe on the beach you'll be fine.

Stayed her in June 2013 with my boyfriend for 4 days. Location of the hotel is excellent, literally 2 minutes from the beach and main resort area. The area is very quiet, but great if that's what you are looking for.
The hotel was extremely busy and check in was very rushed, the room had an awful view, number 239, try to avoid!
The pool was a good size, and a fair number of loungers, but as it was very busy, most people were out by 7 to reserve them.
Great sized hotel and restaurant, but some nights we had to wait outside for a while to get seated because it was so busy. When we got in to get a table, we were pretty disappointed, the food was pretty bland and tasteless. Credit to them, there was a fair amount of choice, but it was poor quality, what I would expect for the price tho! We stayed half board so had breakfasts and dinners. The breakfast was not much better. The half board gives you drinks at dinner, soft drinks, beer and wine which was great.
The entertainment for adults was not great, the team tried their best but it was just cringe worthy mostly. It was great for the kids tho, kids had some kind of entertainment all day into the early evening so it is definitely catered to families.
Beds were very uncomfortable and bad luck if you like to watch TV in your room, it has one English speaking channel, which is the news.
Overall the hotel will be great if you have a young family because they are kept entertained all day, if however you are not a fan of teams of screaming children...avoid!

Stayed here for a week 1st -8th june, on all inclusive basis. The hotel is nice,clean, and in a good position in the resort.Very handy for buses, and boats to get around the island.

Food was very plentiful,with main, salad bar, and pasta everyday.The menu however is almost exclusively English, with offerings such as roast beef,with yorkshire puddings, and apple crumble with custard.!!
It is a family hotel, and as such, is not the sort of place where you go to get peace and quiet.Whilst we were there, there did seem to be a few family groups that consisted of 3 generations, which was lovely to see, and on the whole, were well behaved, contrary to some of the previous reviews.(these groups were served large trays of drinks for the whole party), and not just 2 drinks. I would say, that the pool was far too small for a hotel of this size, and that more sunbeds are needed.As for the earlier complaints about queing at the bars, you just keep an eye out, and go to the bar when there are little or no ques, simple!!

All in all, we had a pleasant enough stay, without any of the aforementioned problems, but if you are looking for the 'spanish experience' you will not get it here.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room ask for one not facing the pool.
