My stay was a weekend in May 2016...especially appreciated the cleanliness and upgraded amenities (modern look)...steps from the beach boardwalk, had breakfast at a restaurant on the corner facing the ocean (pretty good)...walking distance to a variety of bars, restaurants, gift shops, normal and odd-looking bicycles for rent (can ride on the boardwalk which has a designated bike lane), cabana...

The resort is awesome, with great staff and a fun tikki Bar. The rooms were very clean and updated and even though our room was on the side next to the street, we did not hear a lot of traffic. I would stay there agian and again..

Recently stayed at Caribbean Resort by the Ocean for two nights. Had some minor confusion about where to park and how to find the office (you have to drive around the one-way block, park in the hotel parking and then walk back through a maze of buildings to find the office). We went for the 1 bedroom suite in order...

This is the worst hotel i've stayed in my life! Just for everybody know, the property has a small poll BUT THE POOL IS NOT ALLOWED TO ALL GUESTS. JUST THOSE THAT BOOKED THE SUITES (more expensive rates) CAN USE THE SWIMMING POLL. I believe this is against the law ! Unless you have this mentioned in the property website...

What you see is definitely what you get. I'll admit I was a bit prepared to find something worn out, broken, or not the same as what their website described. But NO this resort delivered as promised. Our family of 5 stayed here 2 nights (7/3-4/16) in a 1 bedroom suite while my niece & sister-in-law each stayed in a...

The room, while clean, was incredibly small. The room was a 1 queen suite so I would hate to see how small a regular room is. We are a family of four and 2 days was more than enough. Overall, I wouldn't recommend more than 2 people for the queen suite and the price is quite high for an off...

The hotel in itself is ok but the staff is not very educated or knowledgeable on anything about the hotel. I checked in on Friday for one night and every was fine until my car was illegally towed by the hotel! My parking pass stated I was allowed to park from 7/1 to 7/2 and my car was towed on...

Caribbean R, General Manager at Caribbean Resort by the Ocean, responded to this review

Dear Jennie924, Thank you for your review, your grievance deserves our utmost attention. It is to my regret that your experience at our hotel was negatively impacted by the towing of your vehicle, this is not an experience we wish upon our guests. It is common practice for hotels to calculate amenity rentals (such as parking) on the same basis...

It is a great location in proximity to the beach. Our room was next to the tiki bar. The tiki bar, however, has loud music playing most of the time, which is unbearable if you're trying to nap or sleep.
