We stayed at Caribbean Villas for three nights and had a very pleasant stay. Transportation to and from the dock/airport was included, and while the hotel knew of our plans, we did need to ask the person at the office of the water taxi to call the hotel for us to be picked up. No big deal - just something to be aware of (though this may be attributable to the driver getting stuck in traffic behind a political campaign parade). The location was perfect - within walking distance of the town (about 15 minutes on foot, under 10 by bike), and removed enough to be in a nice, quiet area, secluded from the main road by a windy dirt path though the trees. Bike rentals were free from the hotel - a huge plus.
We originally booked the simplest type of room that they had available and were surprised to be upgraded on check in to a 6 person apartment with a full kitchen and private beach-view balcony. Though we didn't need the space, having a kitchen was a pleasant surprise.
The staff were very friendly, accommodating, and accessible. The woman at the front desk was happy to help us book dinner reservations (in this case, for Hidden Treasure, which sends a car/golf cart to pick you up) and tours (we took the snorkeling tour at Hol Chan, including the shark and ray alley). It was very convenient that the boat for the snorkel tour picked us up at the end of the hotel pier.
I would definitely return to Caribbean Villas - thank you!
