The magnificent beach and warmly decorated rooms only enhance the vibe. Beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts will find the beach perfect for swimming, surfing, bike riding and lounging. Just as refreshing are two oceanfront pools. Numerous shops and restaurants are within walking distance, and parking on-site is free.

  • Free continental breakfast
  • Two oceanfront pools
  • Free Wi-Fi Internet access
Rooms

Most of the 107 eye-catching rooms, efficiencies and suites at the El Caribe Resort and Conference Center feature private balconies with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Rooms are decorated in bright, warm colors that stick with the Caribbean palette. All feature refrigerators, microwaves and complimentary wireless Internet access.

Features

The beach in front of the El Caribe Resort and Conference Center is wide and stretches for miles in either direction. Guests spend days engaging in refreshing water sports (motorized sports are available for rent nearby), bike riding the 23-mile long beach, cooling off in the ocean, or relaxing beside one of the two oceanfront pools.

The resort is centrally located within walking distance to numerous dining establishments, shops, clubs and a water park.

Fantastic location and a fantastic stay

While staying in Florida the only concern we had was to be at the beach. This hotel had great prices and was located directly on the beach. The front desk could have been a bit friendlier, but house keeping was a delight. House keeping was very respectful and friendly. They were eager to give extra towels when needed. Overall it was a great stay.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

I would bring your own food unless you want to drive some where to eat bc the places around in walking distance was not very good but there is a kitchen in the room so lunch and stuff was better when we did it :)

Unbeatable location for the price

Great place to stay with your family. My room was very large and there was a kitchen. The facility has charcoal grills for guest use which was nice. Very family oriented which was great. Our view of the ocean/beach was great. I would recommend this facility to others.

Good for famillies

Housekeeping consisted of making beds and leaving towels. I was there 8 nights and never heard a vacuum. Sand on the glass table stayed the whole time. They didn't leave enough soap or shampoos. Grass lawn and charcoal grills nice for families. Basketball hoop and volleyball net, shuffleboard. Older hotel with full kitchen and nice view on semi-quiet beach. Our neighbors were very loud, doors slam easily, but overall if was pretty quiet. Mostly families and older folks. Free continental breakfast was fine.

Great view but room was run down

It was great being right on the water & having the great view but the room and hotel is outdated and run down. The carpets felt sticky, the bathroom was disgusting and everything outside was dirty and rusty. You get what you pay for.
