“Nice for a girls' holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Stayed here in the middle of July with my friend, both 18 year old girls.
Apartments were spacious, basic but what we expected really. People on other reviews mention loads of bugs and cockroaches but we didn't even see one!

Always lots of people by the pool but always sunbeds available. Music could have been louder but the songs were great!
It is definitely an 18-30 hotel. Wouldn't recommend it for families due to noise at night (take ear plugs!) and round the pool. Unfortunately we arrived at a time when there was a group of 25 lads on a stag weekend who were very rowdy and always wanted to chat - never let us sunbathe! But I suppose it depends who is there when you go but generally everyone was very friendly.

Staff were lovely - maids and lifeguard very smiley and the waiter was an angel!

Wi-Fi is 20 euros for a week - they told us this would only work on one device and it was 27 euros if we wanted two. However we only paid the 20 euros and found it worked on both our phones at the same time so don't fall for this!!

For good restaurants, walk out the hotel and down the road to the bottom until you get to the beach then turn right (left takes you to the strip where restaurants are more expensive) and walk along there - really nice restaurants with great deals: 3 courses for 8 euros!

Also definitley have a couple of drinks before you go out but if your tipsy when you go you can get drunk on the 5 euro drinks deals on the strip easily!

I'm struggling to find fault with this place !! .... If I had to I would say maybe be advisable to get a room as far from pool as possible as the bedroom was other side away from pool and there was a cafe opposite which was noisy first thing and late at night. But other than that we were very happy. Had fresh towels most days. Pool area was very clean and well kept. Nice friendly staff. Will Defo be happy to stay again !

We stayed in Aptos Caribe in late February for a week. Good size apartment with basic facilities. Cleaned daily. Little bit worn out decor but otherwise just fine. We tried the breakfast once, it was ok, but decided to cook our own other mornings. Good location close to the beach. Keep in mind that you need to pay extra for everything; wifi (which was poor by the way), safetybox, tv...

Unfortunately we had very noisy neighbours, didn't matter if it was night or day, this group of young men was very drunk and loud. The soundproofing is very poor, you can hear even normal talking through the wall, not mention group of guys returning from a bar in the middle of the night for an after party. Take earplugs with you just in case. Thankfully the group left after couple of nights... In general, there were mainly families and couples and it was peaceful, but after reading the reviews it seems the be 18-30 hotel during summer season.

Room Tip: Request/book upper floor for sea view

Stayed at the Caribe 8-15th July. My friends and I were pleased and pleasantly surprised by our stay as it did exceed our expectations, but you do get what you pay for. We found the Caribe in an 18-30 hotels brochure and being 19 we thought this hotel was right for us, however we were confused when there were lots of small children around the pool in the daytime and when we were told on several occasions to keep the noise down after around 11pm when we were simply sat outside on our balcony and several other parties around us were being 10 times as loud. Cleaners and pool bar staff were pleasant and those on front desk were generally happy to help but there was one man in particular who was rather grumpy and very unwelcoming when we first arrived looking to check in. The food and drinks at the pool bar were excellent value for money (would also recommend the Playboy restaurant just next to the hotel - delicious food and pleasant staff!!). Rooms were kept very clean and were reasonably sized with good wardrobe space. There is a safe in the wardrobe which we chose to rent for the week for €15 (we weren't told this at first and did have some problems working it but would recommend this). Excellent location, supermarket next to the hotel, less than a 5 minute walk to bars and restaurants and the strip (would also recommend Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant which is around the corner - €7 for all you can eat buffet was excellent value for money!) Would recommend a day out to Siam Park which is literally a 5 minute walk from the hotel and an excellent day out regardless of the kind of holiday you're on (friends, family, couples, etc.) We bought our tickets at the hotel reception for €34 which is the same as the gate price but supposedly avoids queuing for a long time. Overall, a pleasant stay at the Caribe but you do get what you pay for, would recommend!

Basic apartment, you get what you pay for and rooms are still cleaned with fresh towels, toilet paper, kitchen towels and beds made each day. Would recommend a high floor apartment so the view is better and your not overlooking the golf course or tennis court. Bottles of water for 1 euro at the shop downstairs and cheap breakfast. Would say it is more of a place to sleep, shower and get ready in, not really for families who like entertainment. Not as noisy as I thought it would be when I looked at some reviews, had plenty of good nights sleeps. 5-10 minute walk to Siam Park which is a great day out. Would go back again but would have preferred to stay in an all inclusive hotel with entertainment.

Room Tip: The higher floor the room is the better the view and quieter the sound.

I have just returned from Caribe Apartments after a short, four night getaway with a friend.
The apartments are around 15 minutes in a taxi away from the airport costing around £22 euros which I thought was much easier and worth the money.
The rooms are very spacious with a reasonably sized kitchen area complete with fridge, microwave, toaster, hob and all the necessary cutlery etc.
We were on the 3rd floor and had a pool and sea view although from what I could gather most rooms have a pool view which is great!
Our towels were changed on a daily basis however I can only recall the maids having tidied the room once, this was not a problem and every time we saw a maid they were very friendly.
We chose to pay extra for wi-fi and it was extremely touch and go when it would work, it never worked in the bedroom or at one end of the apartment, it only really worked out on the balcony area or by the pool, many times would you have to log back in. This was very frustrating at times considering you have paid for this extra service!
The pool area had a great atmosphere and had a mixture of couples, families and younger people. Music was played around the pool area and it wasn't too loud (really, a little louder would have been better!)
Drinks are reasonably priced by the pool and we never struggled to get a sunbed.
We ate out every day - Playboy restaurant which is literally not even a minute's walk from the apartments, was really good and reasonably priced.
Papagayo Beach Club does really nice cocktails and has some beautiful views of the ocean.
If you are going to do Veronicas Strip i would advise you drink as much as you can before going out then the cheap, watered down drinks and shots will taste ok!
Just up from Veronicas strip on the left there is a great bar called Leonardos. There is also a steak house across the way from there, food is really nice and reasonably priced.

Reason for 4 star is simply because of the standard you get for what you pay. Lovely apartments with cooking equipment if required. Friendly staff working in all areas of the hotel. Wasn't loud at all so if you're worried about getting early nights that isn't a problem. Only downsides were that there was no aid con however it was cool on a evening so sleeping wasn't a problem. And the 'double room' was two single beds pushed together.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are worth the extra pounds you pay for them.
