We stayed at the Caribe from 2/22/12 thru 2/29/12. There a some mixed feelings on this resort. First of all my wife and I have visited quite a few different resorts over the years ranging from small to large. This is my honest opinion of our experience.
Check in was fast and easy. We arrived early and got our room right away.
The room was very nice and clean. Full mini bar stocked daily.
I read some bad reviews on the bartenders and the drinks. I will tell you this, these were the hardest working bartenders around. They have alot to deal with, alot of rude people around. HUGE suggestion...TIP, makes the world of difference with the service and drinks. The bartender staff was courteous and alot of fun to be around. This applies to both the swim up bar and the lobby bar. Great group of people.
The grounds and buildings were very nice.
This chain of resorts is very kid and family oriented. For a couple getting away for a relaxing vacation, pick another resort. We got very tired of the "kid club: kids, kids characters running around doing their dances and songs with the kids. The kids were often unsupervised by their parents so had kids jumping off the swim up bar stools, jumping off the edge of the pool next to you. Not very relaxing for us.
Pool was small (with lots of kids).
Beach was large but was rocky, lots of seed weed. Just average.
Food; Not much selection, same thing every day, average in quality.
By looking at the pictures and reading the reviews, we were expecting alot more from this resort since it is in the Barcelo chain. Very disappointed.
Would we go back??? Only if it was an extremely cheap deal. We have stayed at alot nicer resorts for alot less money.
Who knows, if we would have had less kids during our vacation time, we might have given this resort a little better rating. Very nice clean resort with a great staff, but not couple friendly.
