The hotel is a little oasis. It is in the middle of the Condado area with shops, outdoor cafes and restaurants. Walgreens, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts are like little pearls around the hotel and when you think it can’t get any better you find that it does. The beach is only a 3 minute walk away. The major hotels are all in the same vicinity which often […] have live music and dancing. But in spite of all the city-like activities and nightlife, the Hotel has a beautiful garden that is surely therapeutic. It has a great little pond with plants and palm trees all around it. There are little round, white tables and chairs that are great for relaxing after a full day of fun. The owner, who lives there, is a wonderful person and truly takes care of his hotel. Please do NOT expect the El San Juan, although the rooms are not massive, they are clean, the remote and the air conditioner work and the prices are great! The only little dark spot I can find is that they don’t have any parking, however, they do offer parking at the Marriot which is right across the street, for a fee.

"Not such a good place to stay"
Nice room but had NO hot water. We were told it is tropical wether there. what the heck does that matter. When we complained about having no hot water they did not do anything, they just shook there shoulders and said nothing. Front desk lady was nice, but pictures look better than actual place,. Not worth the price paid at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A small Inn in the middle of Condado Beach Area"
The hotel is just okay. If all you are looking for is a bed to sleep on then this is for you. It is a small Inn with 13 rooms. The staff leaves at 5:00pm and if you need anything after that you have to call their sister hotel and they come to help. The key they give you for the room is also the one to get in and out of the tiny complex. The day we arrived […] we left our only key inside our room and needed to call the sister hotel to come and help us. The best aspect of this tiny hotel is the location. It is in the middle of the Condado beach area, only 5 minutes walk to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Because my wife and I are spoiled with staying in nice hotels most of the time, this one was a little shocking to us at first. The next time we will pay more and look for something bigger. I hope this helps. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ed is an expert about the area"
The hotel location was fabulous. You are close to everything. Ed is very knowledgeable about the area. His recommendations on where to eat were excellent. I intent to visit annually and will stay at the casa del caribe every time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modest, safe and very clean"
The picture at Hotels.com is not correct -- the hotel is not on the beach, it's a couple of blocks away. This is a very modest hotel, very clean -- and as a woman traveling alone I felt very safe. The hotel is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value in otherwise expensive area."
Lost electricity the last day of vacation for over 8 hours. A real downer but not the hotel's fault. Bigger hotels had their own generators. Location of hotel was perfect with good and cheap transportation nearby and plenty of great restaurants within walking distance in a really safe neighborhood. Noise level in room was poor as it was near a major […] road and rooms weren't sound efficient. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good, inexpensive place to stay in the heart of Condado. Great location, next door to Starbucks and a Nice Spinning gym.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and staff!"
My boyfriend and I recently went on a short vacation to San Juan and stayed at Casa del Caribe. We really enjoyed our stay here! I suspect that the people who had issues were expecting more of a plush hotel experience. We found it was more of a motel-meets-bed-and-breakfast type of situation (keeping in mind that a Caribbean "motel" is different than […] the many you find in the continental US- at least in my experience). We had our own space and bathroom. Outside was a courtyard with areas to sit and relax. Wifi was available. The location was also a great benefit! We were within walking distance to a beautiful beach, great restaurants, night life and a bus that went straight to Viejo San Juan. We also really enjoyed the staff there, especially the host! He gave us a lot of great advice that led us to wonderful authentic Puerto Rican and Turkish restaurants, incredible tours of the rainforest and bio-luminescent boy, and the best way to get to and from Viejo San Juan. We REALLY enjoyed our trip and this site! We'd happily stay there again and recommend it to friends! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location to party"
Just a room to sleep. No lobby, its a great location. I found parking in the neighborhood, so didn't have to pay for parking. on the flipside I wouldn't. Go there for a honeymoon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was nice sized, king bed was comfortable, No windows. Location was great. Only problem was there was NO HOT WATER. About 45 seconds of lukewarm water in shower, less in sink. AC was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

It's clean, simple, and in a great location. If your the kind of person looking for a decent place to rest your head then this is a great place. It's not a resort or expensive hotel so if your looking for a hotel you want to spend a lot of time in then its not for you, but if your like me and just want a decent place to sleep while you explore the city […] and enjoy the beach then this is a good place with nice staff.

"Good location, great for the price!"
For the price paid, the hotel stay was a good deal. It is located in the heart of Condado, close to restaurants, beach, transportation. Ed, Manager, was quite accommodating and very helpful. He helped me out which the restaurants to check out and things to do around. The wifi in the room is also pretty good. The breakfast served is just okay! The […] sister pool/jacuzzi is a 15 min walk..away from the main area..which was not so great... Overall a good stay for people who would spend less time in their rooms.

Great Location, superb friendly staff. walking distance to beach and in the middle of the Condado area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad but old."
The price of the hotel is perhaps justified by its location. But as a B & B, it needs some upgrading. The breakfast is on a par with Comfort Inn: simple. I would have expected a hot breakfast buffet for the money. The location is excellent, being in the heart of the busy Condado district and near all the restaurants and stores. The beach is across the […] main avenue, around the back of the Marriott Hotel. The management is friendly. The accommodations, the room, beds, facilities, must date back thirty years or more. The building is perhaps pre-WWII. The air conditioning was excellent. The outdoor patio is relaxing. The parking is across the street in the Marriott @$18/day.

"Will be back again!!"
The Casa Del Caribe was a nice little place to lay your head at night, without breaking your billfold. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The continential breakfast could use a little more variety-we had toast, pastries, cereal, juice and coffee everyday. They could add some fresh fruit or bagels, but it was fine. Staff were all very friendly and […] knowledgable and the location is excellent-close to everything and walking distance to many attractions. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio and also enjoyed the sister pool and hot tub. A great place for the price!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Some mishaps but overall good stay"
This was my first time getting a hotel from this website. I mostly make my decision by the customer reviews. I mostly read that even though the place was not fancy, the place was clean and comfortable. I also read that staff was very corteous. Well all these things were very true. So these were my mishaps and I would like to share them because someone […] could learn before they pick this hotel. If you check in after 5 pm, you have to go to the Canary Inn to check in because no one is at the desk at that time. Well I was not aware of this, so when we walked there from our hotel the guy at the Canary Inn could not find my reservation. Thankfully I printed all my confirmations and was able to prove to the guy that I did have a reservation, but it took QUITE a while and alot of patience. I also found out that this hotel as nice as it was does NOT have any parking available (something that should be mentioned in the hotel information). I also had to pay a day charge at the Marriott hotel parking lot (this is a discount from the normal charge). I was very disappointed by not only the parking charges at the hotel, but just about everywhere in the Condado area and San Juan. Anyone that plans to make a trip to Puerto Rico should be aware of this. Another helpful suggestion is take a GPS with you if you dont know the area. I was glad we did. Again my overall stay at the Caribe Inn was a good one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location, friendly atmosphere, affordable"
I truly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Knowing I was going to be at the beach all day, I wanted an affordable hotel in a great location...this certainly was the place.

"Right off the strip."
This is a little hard to find as the GPS marks it down the street. Look up till you see the Marriott sign and you are close it is just across the street from the Buns burger place next to the abandoned building. Beautiful courtyard, quiet rooms. No cooking area but there is a BBQ available. The ocean waves are a blast here but there is a lot of ocean […] vegetation in the water. I like Vieques better for beaches but I came back to swim and visit the "Small Bar" Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't expect much"
We had an over night stay in San Juan. It's okay for a night stay. No longer. It's old and needs a little work. Room was clean and that's what mattered most to meGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disgusting motel.we couldn't stay there!!!!!"
The hotel should not be on your list of possible places to stay. We never checked in. It took about an hour to get in to see the hotel as it is locked up and the wall around it is 6 feet high. No one answered our calls so we walked over to the after hour hotel mentioned on Del Caribe's locked door. We were able to contact the manager, he let us in and […] we found the room small, dirty and unacceptable. We never stayed there and lost the $ paid for a two night stay. This place should not be on Hotels.com. It deserves 0 stars. DO NOT STAY HERE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price!"
For the price, this is one of the best cheap hotels I have ever stayed at. As long as you know what you are paying for, and you don't mind rinsing off your breakfast bowl, you will love this homey place with everything a young traveler needs... Proximitey to the action and good Internet. The one unusual thing is the limited desk hours, so be sure to […] keep that in mind. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Beach Access"
I was only there for a couple hours since i had a 14 hour layover from St Croix. The hotel was close to the beach and restaurants. I slept well but didn't want to stay more than those 14 hours. It was cramped and the hotel was not maintained well at all but it was convenient for 14 hours and no more than that!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just so -so"
We have been to PR many time before and prefer to stay in a bed and breakfast/ guesthouse in the neighborhood. My husband and I pride ourselves in being the "uncommon tourists" unfortunately our stay at Casa del caribe was much less than we expected. The staff were courteous, but not engaging. If we spoke, they responded but that was it. The room was […] clean, but the little travel size bottles were all shampoo's and it was evident that some had been open previously. Our room was a free upgrade, faced a side street and alley way. That was OK, but the curtains could not be moved on the rod to let light in during the day, except by tying them up. The information book left in the room went into detail about charges that would be incurred for damages, but didnot explain the continental breakfast procedure or just general neighboorhood info. ( there is a great little park one block up) If you want a clean and quiet place to sleep with that is near the action of Condado then this is the place for you, If you want a little more homey feel of a puertorican guesthouse, we recommend to look else where.

I have no complaints about my stay there. If you're looking for economy, clean and comfortable then this is the right place. The location couldn't have been better!

"Not for everybody"
Although not for everybody, this quaint B & B is is a super location. Everything is within walking distance, or a short cab ride. With no phones, no clock radios, no bar (pity!), it was quiet, clean, and convenient. The towels were actually better than some name-brand hotels I have stayed at. As far as service, there is none!

"Don't get fooled, price to high for this hotel"
I wasn't pleased with this hotel. It should be a bed and bath. For the price I paid, I wasn't impressed. For a few dollars more, I could have stayed in a hotel that has a lot more to offer,ie pool, room service etc.. This place doesn't even have an iron in the room. It says they have block out curtains, but when you turn on the a/c, it blows the curtains […] and the street light and sun lights up the room. The pictures make you think its close to a beach, but you have to walk a pretty good distance. Parking is off site in another hotel. I will never stay here again...

"Excellent Location and service"
Casa del Caribe was wonderful! Location couldn't be better, it is close to nice restaurants and bars, the beach is only a block and a half away. Something very important is the security of the area; it couldn't be better! The Condado area is always patrolled by police 24/7 and one can walk around securely (this was a huge plus since we were two women […] on our own, and felt completely safe)The hotel is a simple bed & breakfast, but it is very good. The personnel at the hotel was pleasant and always willing to assist in all our needs and questions. The rooms were clean, spacious bathroom (although it depends on the room you get; the first room I stayed in had a very small bathroom, but we were quickly moved to another room after a problem was detected in there, The second room had a much bigger bathroom). I would definitely stay there again. :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Marriot Hotel next door"
The location of the hotel was great, some was fairly clean but the service was not good enough. Plus checking time was 2pm not good enough anyone should be allowed to check in anytime before 2pm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is next to dilapidated building that needs to be torn down. They do not have enough staff to keep someone there at the desk to check you in if you come in late like I did. I had to go to the Canario Inn around the corner on Ashford Ave. I was given an apartment type room that slept 6. It had older furnishings, and it was relatively clean. […] Great for a group. The shower was terrible- no pressure, but it did have hot water It would be nicer if it had a jacuzzi in the large court area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"CLOSE TO EVERYTHING"
The hotel is great but the parking space is horrible. The parking at the hotel is with restriction for example small car and it is horrible to be out from the parking because the owner parked the car and there is one small place to drive out from the garage parking. Other than that it is ok. I would stay again bit without car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"this place is steps from everything"
The hotel was a few minutes from the beach. Shopping and restaurants nearby. Marriott casino across the street. Walgreens a block away for all your needs. I had a great meal at the Green house, a block away. Great 1lb lobster special. There were many nice people from all over the world staying here. Canada,Germany Czeck ?? republic. Ed gave great directions […] and suggestions. I stayed in room 2/6. 2 was small but it served the purpose. 6 was big with a plasma T.V. however had no accessible outlets or hooks in bathroom to hang towels. The parking situation was a bit cumbersome. However on further thought a car really was not necessary. Busses and ferrys link you to old town and Catano bay where the Bicardi distillery is. Buses are .75 and ferry from old town to catano is $1.00 round trip. Buses are slow and unreliable but you meet locals.The taxi from the airport was a fast $19.00 fare for 2. I wish I had mingled more with the diverse crowd staying at the hotel. 1 night a few people got together and had a cook out. I would stay here again and recommend it to others. It was clean, safe and fun.There is also a place called buns and Mona's across the street. Buns had weekly specials and a vast beer selection. Monas touted margaritas and light fare. Mikes pizza also was about a 7 block walk west and had great food and generous portions. This hotel is pet friendly I believe. Ed has a nice med sized dog that was nice to be around.

"In the middle of the action, great location"
For the money, this place can't be beat. Centrally located within walking distance of many of the shops, resorts and restaurants in Condado. I received a free upgrade to a king sized bed from Ed who was really nice. The rooms were relatively clean, but don't expect a 5 star resort room; if you need a bed to sleep on, this place more than fit the bill. […] My only complaint was for those that plan on renting a car; the parking situation is HORRIBLE. The "onsite parking" is basically a gated alley next to the hotel where you have to parallel park against a wall in order to let anyone by trying to get out. I had INCHES to spare on each side of the rental when trying to get out one morning. After speaking to Ed, he offered me a permit to park at the Marriott up the street for a flat rate for 24 hours, which was more than fair and adequate. Overall, I would stay at this place again and had a great time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything you need"
I was very happy with the stay. The hotel is very cozy and open environment. I like to be able to have freedom around the building and not having people watching everything you do.

"Price too high for quality"
We knew for the price that we weren't going to expect much. It's kind of difficult to find without a GPS giving you the approximate location and by approximate I mean a block off. The address is not easy to see from the road amongst the erratic drivers of Puerto Rico. It's tucked away behind a concrete wall and a small gate guards the entrance. The […] sign welcomes you and tells you to enter from a location that does not exist (according to the front desk person). We were buzzed in since she saw us there reading the directions. The "front office" is outside on a porch. The look of the place is very "beach house." It is very weathered. The check in process took a while outside in the heat. Once we were settled into our cave (sunlight minimal), we discovered there was no glass on the windows. The shutters were the only thing separating the outside air from the screen and only the bathroom shutters opened. So no light in the main room. The room itself though was nice with a big clean king bed, nice wooden floors and clean towels. There was an absence of available outlets so be wary of carrying too many electrical charging devices. There was a single air conditioner in the room that cooled nicely. The continental breakfast that was served was very minimal (one pot of coffee for 8 rooms and ants crawling on the pastries and bread). The wifi access was only available in the front desk area outside and not in the rooms. All in all it was a bit overpriced for what you receive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
