* Overall * I read most of the reviews here before I booked, and the others do a fair job of describing the hotel. The rooms are fairly spartan, but there's nothing closer to the gorgeous ocean. Hammocks, beach chairs and the proximity of the water make the bare-bones accommodations worth it. * The Rooms * It's not the 4...

This is a modest, but pleasant hotel. I have a slight disability (walk with a cane) and I found it easy to get around and the staff helpful and friendly. The beach is feet from our door (room #212..king size bed with sink and refrigerator). If you are looking for night life, excitement etc this is not the place for...

We chose Puerto Rico because my husband had not been there in 20 years. The staff was very helpful, pleasant and friendly. Luis the manager was accomodating beyond our expectation.

Found this place in 2003, it was a haven after much rain. Went back in 2007. The room was just as nice and clean, the restaurant was really good - best Mafungo I had just about anywhere.

An average hotel - If you just want to enjoy the beach and only the beach, stay here. Be prepared to drive for an hour and half from San Juan by paying a lot of tolls( around $ 3.50). Since we wanted to visit all the places in the island, we ended up driving a lot of time and paying...

I liked this place alot! I stayed for TWO WEEKS with a group of people and we loved it. I agree -- it is noisy from road traffic at night because of the way the place sits on a bit of land between the road and the beach. Some nights worse than others. You just need to drink a few...

I read all the reviews before booking our stay. Knowing what to expect is always helpful (thanks Trip Advisor) but I think when you book a 3 star hotel you need to keep your expectations in check.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Picture yourself in an unspoiled beach, the tropical breeze caressing you as you bask in the sun, enjoying a nap in a hammock strung across palm trees or just beachcombing under a starry sky. Located in a pristine corner of Puerto Rico’s southeast coast, the Caribe Playa Beach Resort nestles in a secluded cove where the mountain rain forest slopes down to touch a crescent shaped beach of a spectacular Caribbean Sea view. It’s the only hotel in the area with all rooms right in front of the beach. All guestrooms have a great close-up view of the sea. They have A/C, cable TV, refrigerator, private bathroom, are fully sheeted, spacious and have a dining/seating area. Some have a small kitchen sink and cabinets since there are BBQs in front of each building for your use. First and second floors have a patio or balcony respectively. Wi-Fi is available in various areas. The beach is just steps away. So close, that you’ll sleep to the soothing sound of the waves. Guests can swim, snorkel, surf, or fish at the Caribe Playa’s beach, weather depending. Or, they can simply relax in one of the beach's many lounge chairs or hammocks in between many palm trees. There is an outdoor adult and kiddies pool right next to the sea with a breathtaking view. There are more than 20 gardens with beautiful flowers and lush, tropical plants. Therapeutic massage is available by appointment. A rest and relax, family and romantic ambiance with personal service. All at a great value. Our Seaview Terrace Restaurant offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and serves varied breakfast, lunch and dinner selections plus local delicacies. Tropical beverages and light snacks are also offered during the day. The Caribe Playa Beach Resort is 90 minutes from the San Juan, Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. Downtown Patillas is just over 10 minutes away. Many use us as base for exploring the south and east of the island, Vieques and Culebra, or for scheduling fishing trips. Many of our guests turn into friends to be welcomed year after year. Come and stay in your personal tropical paradise. ... more   less
