Stayed 6 nights at this property in January 2017. Overall I was very impressed. The property is everything you would expect from an nicer hotel. Clean, quiet, everything in good repair, comfortable and more. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We got a suite (4 in our family group) that included a main floor 3 piece bathroom and living area...

My girlfriend and I stayed for a week with a tour group and had an amazing time here. The hotel is fairly new, the location is pretty close to downtown (walking distance) and the views of Mt Brasil are phenomenal. The hotel has very good facilities (Gym, Dive Center, Squash Courts, Spa etc.) and you can even swim in the...

While not what I would consider a traditional four star hotel, The Caracol more than satisfied our needs for the week we stayed there. The staff was absolutely the best! There was no one who was not polite and friendly and always willing to help. The place is spotless. Rooms are very clean, the lobby is constantly being tended to,...

Dear Guest, I would like to express gratitude for your review. Also I would like to leave some information about the indoor pool. We are working wih the hotel´s architect to modernise the pool and other places namely the Bar Monte Brasil, a great outlet needing upgrade. But there is a truth that we know for sure. The Hotel Staff...

I stayed here last winter on vacation with my now fiancé. Although I'm a little late writing a review, I would like to say that the hotel was amazing, the staff was extremely accommodating, and the bartender in the second flour lounge made amazing drinks and was very friendly and helpful. The wine was delicious and extremely inexpensive - $2...

Beds are twins pushed together and hard. Pillows flat as pancakes. OK for me I like a firm bed and always bring a travel pillow. That is it for downside. The hotel is sparkling clean. Water hot and pressure great for showers. All staff from front desk to restaurant to housekeeping friendly and helpful. Views excellent from both sides, I...

We arrived very early in the morning and were so pleased to find our rooms ready for us. We came in as a group and the check in process was handled very quickly. Yes, the beds are hard and the pillows aren't great. However, for as much as we were in our room (not much) it was perfectly adequate. Breakfast...

We arrived early in the morning after a sleepless night on an uncomfortable plane, and had paid for early check-in that included breakfast- turned out we didn't need to do that since everyone on our bus was checked in early anyway. It was good to have breakfast included every day, but as noted in other reviews and as is typical...

I have slept in airport terminals more comfortable than that bed. It was truly awful, and I am not particularly fussy. The pillows were also not remotely adequate, to the point where I inquired where I could find a store that sells pillows so I could purchase a new one just for my stay. The mattress and pillows were so...

We enjoyed our stay, however have a few tips. Our rooms (trip with our adult children) had two twin beds pushed together. I've seen this on a cruise ship but made with king sheets, but this was not set up as a king. I found that a little strange. Maybe it is a European thing that I'm not aware. We...

Stayed in the family Suite w/ water view. Amazing view but does need some upgrades. Some cracks on wall in the studio room. Shower head in the main bathroom wouldn't stay up. No shower curtain but had 1/2 wall to supposedly keep water from going out on floor but with the shower head not staying up on the holder it...
