I would stay at Caribe again
Posted Jan 15, 2017
Caribe is close to the airport (a $20 cab ride) without having to endure overhead airline traffic. Check in isn't until 4pm, but Caribe staff got us in our room at noon without a charge. Once in our room, it was unkempt and not in good repair and there was oil on the bathroom floor which they cleaned at our request while we ate dinner, but once we got back we noticed this oily stuff was EVERYWHERE. We requested a new room and were given a "Garden View" room at no extra charge. It was the middle of the night and raining, so we couldn't see what we were getting but were pleasantly surprised in the morning when we woke to a beautiful garden complete with peacocks, geese, koi ponds.... it was lovely! The hotel is a roughly 30-40 minute walk to Old San Juan so we were able to walk off all the great food we ate... but even after an evening of imbibing, a cab was only $12 back to Caribe. The pool was nice as was the small beach, if you can handle the wind.
