"Great Reception Staff !"
We were meant to be there 2 nights prior to a cruise, but thanks to an airline mix-up we got stranded in Santo Domingo in the middle of the night, and were not able to cancel the room in San Juan.The staff were most understanding and did not charge us for the extra night, which they would have been entitled to do.The room was comfortable and well-appointed, but rather anonymous, in fact the whole experience, from breakfast to lunch and the pool was that the hotel was overcrowded and a bit 'Butlinsy'. The boutique is particularly good,where they thorougly enjoyed fitting me out with a new wardrobe of clothes after Luggage Forward lost our cases !!
"Spring vacation at its best! Sunhat off to you Caribe!"
My family stayed at the Caribe Hilton for a week while vacationing in Puerto Rico. The hotel is lovely, the staff is always friendly and accommodating and our room was outstanding. I am not sure where to start! We had a nice ocean view that also overlooked the tropical garden. We went to sleep every night to the sound of the little coquis! Our room was perfected cleaned and the bed was very comfortable. The beach area was a perfect (but crowded) place to relax and take a dip in the ocean. Snorkeling right off the beach was actually pretty good. We swam with about 50 sergeant majors and about 20 blue tangs, among many other species. Night swims in the pool were quiet and refreshing. We mostly went out to eat but did have some monfongo (pretty good but we are picky about our monfongo) and fresh fruit salad (delicious!!!!) at the poolside cafe. And of course the pina colada (born at the Caribe!) was better than I had ever tasted. It is not made from a gross mix like pretty much everywhere else in the world, is naturally sweet and uses coconut milk (yippee for me with the milk allergy!) The starbucks in the lobby is convent but usually totally packed. I also went to their gym on a few days but preferred to run along the ocean on the bike/run path for the view! The front desk staff, beach/pool staff and room assistants were outstanding. We have been all over the caribbean and for sure, this is one place we will head back to again!
Ms. Rodriguez was helpful before, during, and after the stay. She knows just about everything. The restaurants is the hotel were excellent, though Morton's is overpriced. Would appreciate counselling on tipping the staff.
"Family stay at the Caribe"
Gorgeous site that I had been to many times before on business. Have upgraded over the years. Main areas of disappointment was as an Honors Member it did not seem to provide us with any room upgrades/perks. All food was great quality (especially worth checking out is the Pina Colada Club), and pricey. All staff was courteous. Beach and pool area got very crowded by early afternoon
"Professional Workshop and Relaxation"
Stayed at the Caribe for a mix of business and relaxation. Hotel is well appointed, comfortable, good location. Workshop breakfasts olon an outdoor patio, rooms were clean, quiet, comfy beds. Walking distance to Old San Juan. Restaurants and bars in hotel were great (Lemongrass was awesome) Hope to be back.
