In the Middle of Everything

Posted Dec 14, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: I wouldn't want to upset the applecart by initiating any changes.
Location: See experience,aabove.
I've stayed at the Hotel Caribe four times in the past 20 years, and the experience has been consistently satisfactory. Don't expect chocolates on your pillow or room service, but the average nature of the hotel is more than made up for by low price and a priceless location. It's a block north of the zocalo, where locals and visitors congregate for music and dance and ceremonial displays, and just a short walk south of live theater, Yucatan University, and Santa Lucia park, another center of free public performances of all kinds. The hotel restaurant is excellent. English is no problem at the front desk, and the service is exemplary, once you realize you have to ask for it.

Central location but run down

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Location: Location was right in the middle of town, an easy walk to shops. It's a taxi ride to the bus station although a cab stand just outside made it easy
Booked this hotel after reviewing on the net. My impression was that it once would have been a lovely hotel but it has not been maintained. I was an older male solo traveller so not looking for luxury, just a clean reasonable place to sleep and clean up. The room they gave me was tiny and the bathroom even smaller. I asked for a better room but was told it was the best they had, even though the hotel was nearly empty. Anyone with a weight problem or a disability would have been hard pressed to get into the shower, squeezing past the toilet and then to find the water just dribbled out of the faucet. The restaurant downstairs was fairly basic although the staff were quite friendly

Nice hotel with a good location

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: The location and the old style architecture
Cons: The air conditioning, TV, and a bath mat and wash cloth.
Location: The hotel is in the center of the old town with many sights and restaurants.
We have stayed at the El Caribe for many years because we have been looking for a hotel with a good location. The hotel itself has some drawbacks, but if you know that going in then it is OK. The WIFI is spotty as is the air conditioning. The rooms are large and simply furnished. If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel then it is a good buy. If you are looking for Western style comfort then you need to go to a better place. We will be returning because we know what to expect and don't mind the inconveniences.
