“Value for money- but don't hang around it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2011

this hotel was great value, clean and well located- but I would not stay here again.
I did not anticipate all that goes with a budget all inclusive hotel- and that is an error I will not make again. Very poor quality food and drinks. Very noisy patrons, most taking advantage of the free drinks and letting children run wild. Not for me. Everyone else looked like they were having a good time though

Well i've been going to this Hotel for last 7 years how disappointed i have been this year ! This hotel went All inclusive in 2010 and i thought they would have learned from there experience in the first year but alas not so ?
They have gone opposite way and gone cheap cheap cheap even the tea bags were so crap you had to put at least two in your plastic cup to make a good cup of tea and the coffee from the little machine they served you from was just disgusting and i just did not have any more after trying a couple of times.

All inclusive guests are treated like second class citizens,small plastic cups for beer, wine and other cold drinks you could not even have a pint of beer only a Small plastic cup.
Even plastic cups for hot drinks.It was noted however that Half Board guests were always served with glasses and proper cups AND ALWAYS SERVED FIRST. There is a large sign at one end of the bar All Inclusive Guests served here .

I fully understand the need for plastic cups around the pool area but no way in the bar area at night.
In restaurant there was no table cloths on the tables in was like being in a transport cafe !

Most of the staff are very friendly but it has one or two bad eggs especially the bar manager who is very abusive if you complain or upset him !

How anybody can say the food in this hotel is good i don't know ? it's about average i know as i've been coming here 7 yrs and as i have stopped here for 4 weeks at a time in the past and it repeats often.

I deffernatly will not be using this hotel again !!

Room Tip: Higher rooms are less noisey But the walls are paper thin so not much better.

Lets use the hotels questionnaire.
RECEPTION.
Good, helpful when asked anything. Very polite.
CLEANESS OF ROOMS.
Very good.
MEALS.
Poor variety repeated regularly never known the same urn of soup called so many things.If you are into tired salads fine.Be careful of the fish ?.
QUALITY.
Poor, hot meals invariably presented cold,best meal of the day was breakfast, bread rolls were always good and fresh.Thank goodness for the microwave.
RESTAURANT DRINKS.
Check the colour of the water before you take it.
BAR.
All inclusive guests treated like second class citizens,small cheap plastic cups for wine ( so did not have any) and other cold drinks.Cardboard cups for hot drinks.It was noted however that Half Board guests were always served with glasses and proper cups AND ALWAYS SERVED FIRST. There was a large sign at one end of the bar All Inclusive Guests served here you could only have 2 drinks per person so in my instance i had to go to the bar twice to obtain three drinks ( one for each of us). this area consisted of about six tables with plastic chairs.
We fully understand the need for plastic cups around the pool area but no way in the bar.

Room Tip: Try to have a room looking over the pool which is at the back of the hotel not over the local reside...

sorry to have to complain. iv stopped at the caribe many times,and enjoyed my to weeks stay .in may and then again in october ,the staff are great the food not bad,everything is GOOD,except when it comes to the bar.i only ever drink tea during the day, if your allinclusive you get served in plastic cups the same with beer and spirits,thats fine for around the pool but at night that is poor,,but if your halfboard and pay for a drink you get proper cups and glasses.IS THIS A TWO CLASS SYSTEM?..it sure seems like it.i no i have been spoiled in the past we always had proper cup and glasses ,this is a good hotel,, please dont run the bar like a transport cafe. so if you want my four weeks booking for next year please think on.one last point,table clothes in the dinning room would not go a miss

Room Tip: singel people 515 is a nice quit room

The hotel service and location was absolutely excellent - only five minutes walk to the sea. The room and amenities were also excellent. We liked everything that was laid on especially the service and friendliness of the staff who were always happy to assist. Having said that, it would have been nice to have had tea or coffee facilities in the room. On a couple of days the food was not to our taste, but this was no problem, as we were going to eat out on some days anyway.
We did experience the sound of dogs barking and we heard people moaning about this. However, when I was looking out over the pool from the balcony I saw some guests actually teasing the dogs and making them bark from their balcony and children were also seen shaking the fence. Perhaps this would account for the dogs barking. Other than on these occasions that I experienced, they were quiet.
There were two occasions daily when snacks were available. What I would like to see is tea, coffee and fruit readily available. Not all guests like fizzy drinks, alcohol or fast food.
There were five adults in our party and we all agreed that the hotel, the staff and the experience was excellent. We certainly would go to Caribe Hotel again.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool area.

Second october in this Hotel. We returned because we liked it. The 1st time we came we had 3 days of rain, the 2nd time only one. I've holidayed in Ibiza in late july and had rain also.
Es Cana is a small, lovely resort. Beautiful beach and lots of nice pubs, restaurants, fair for the kiddies and a few shops. Theres always some sort of entertainment going on. Charlies Bar and Popeyes always have live entertainment, bingo quizes etc. The red lion is a traditional English bar that does Karoke from the 50's up to the 70's. Its very popular with the older crowd.
The Hotel occupies an enviable position, only 2 hotels back from the beach. A 2 minute walk at the most. Its attractive, good decor, clean and we found the staff really nice and helpful. Our room had more than enough space for the two of us,we had free air con (a rarity in my opinion in all incusive hotels under 4 stars..obviously im reviewing this as a couple only. The maid service was excellant, they dont work on a Thursday, but still bring clean towels. It always irritates me when people complain about this. Do you get your beds made, rooms cleaned and fresh towels daily at home?
The resaurant was fine..a dam site better than some I've experienced. For what we payed i really cant grumble about the food. Everything we chose was nice, to be fair i dont see how they can provide the choice and quality for the price we paid (£330 each for a week including flights).
Being October there were no problems with queing at the bar..although its not that big and i can imagine it being a problem in peak season.
Same with the pool...more than enough sunbeds at this time of year and nice pool. childrens pool and club, although cant comment on this as we didnt have children with us.
Entertainment was dire, aimed at families with small children, as is everywhere ive stayed all inclusive, but theres so much more in the resort. we used to have dinner , a couple of drinks and then head out.
some people have complained about the noise of dogs next door to the hotel, i only ever heard them once for a minute at the most...why on earth are you people in your rooms listening to that? your on holiday! we had a side street facing room, but still had a sea view.
The drinks were fine, not watered down..(i had the hangovers to prove it on 2 occasions!) I really dont see how people can complain...when you add it up..if you just had your soft drinks around the pool in the day and breakfast each morning it works out way cheaper than self catering!
I rarely return to the same hotel twice, i came back here because i liked it so much, even with the torrentail rain the first time around. Its the best value all inc hotel that i've come across.
I certainly have no complaints, i stayed in a 4 star half board , beach front hotel in June. The Caribe was more superior by far, the food was better and was a dam site cheaper!.

Hotel good points clean and in a good location,reception cleaned several times daily and always some one their to help. Kids area very good with climbing frames,swings and a childrens club. Food good and a good selection for a three star. Sky Sports in bar area able to get the big football games,rugby and golf. Usual pool games. Good service at bar. Lifts are easy to get. Hotel bad points pool very dirty it took us to complain before anything was done. Pool attendant cleaned around the tiles with the brush he dipped in the pool. Plastic glasses and separate bar for all inclusive guests. Other guests who pay for drinks get bigger measures and proper glasses. Entertainment at night was very poor for couples and adults.

Room Tip: rooms over looking pool best
