    Exceptional Staff

    Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. Everyone gives off a warm, family feel. So many of the team members have worked there for many, many years and it shows! We loved getting to know each one especially Maria, Jose & Harry! But Virgie was by far our absolute favorite! Each of you made us feel special and right at home! Check-in & Check-out was quick, easy and accommodating. The room was perfectly updated & clean and our view from the garden wing was spectacular! The food and Ariel's special award-winning drinks were delicious. The garden, pool and beach area are gorgeous and easy to find a spot to decompress and relax. The live music and atmosphere at night was super fun! We are so happy to see your recovery after Hurricane Maria. Knowing how supportive management was for the staff during the time when you were closed means a great deal to us. We can't wait to come back! The only thing better would be to make this a HGV property so we could come more often!

    Great help

    My husband and I stayed at the Caribe Hilton for few days. We had drinks at the Caribar. Not only the great service from Joel Iglesias, who was very friendly but all the insights he gave us of things to do and places to go.

    Wished There Were More Amenities

    Stayed at the Caribe for a week and I have to say that they have the best staff I have ever encountered collectively. The staff always greeted you warmly and really made you feel good about staying there. I must say that the location was excellent but I really wanted more amenities then what was offered at this property. There is a small man made beach and a small pool and that is about it. No beach activities and no activities staff. I really wanted more TBH. The view was nice but obstructed from my room. I asked for ocean view but because I got a suite I couldn't have an ocean view room apparently which made no sense to me. The suite was very funny shaped in my opinion but nice and the bed very comfy. I will also say that the bed was supposed to be king sized but didn't look like that size at all. The property itself is very beautiful. The food was delicious as well. Room service took a long time and was cold when we got it but they offered to make things right for us.

    Overpriced, average hotel

    This hotel was average at best and significantly overpriced. It has the price tag of a resort when it more of a nice hotel. This hotel just went through a remodel to repair damage from past hurricanes, so the rooms are mostly updated and the public areas are nice. Our room was an ocean view with a balcony, it had tile floors, a large TV, and a nice updated bathroom and it was clean. My biggest issue with this hotel is the price. It is over $300 a night plus a resort fee. It not all inclusive (and very expensive food/drinks), and you won't want to spend a lot of time here when you have gorgeous Old San Juan to visit. There is a private beach with a wave break, so you can swim in the ocean. They also have a moderate sized pool. We booked this hotel with the original intent to arrive at approximately 2am due to our flight plans. We had a long flight going into San Juan and unfortunately our first flight was delayed for over 6 hours, so when we finally checked in we had missed one whole night at the hotel. We called ahead when we knew we weren't going to arrive as planned and asked if we could get the first night either refunded or discounted due to not arriving because of flights. We were told they couldn't refund or reduce the price we paid, so we ended up paying over $700 to stay one night in this hotel. Next time I go to San Juan, I will definitely stay someplace else and I recommend you check around before booking this expensive option.
