good value for money
"We stayed in the caribe apartments in July 2012 with a few friends, on arrival we were greeted by a receptionist who promptly checked us in. We had a very clean one bedroomed apartment with impressive sea views. The pool is nice with loads of sun loungers and very clean with a friendly life guard on duty. All the staff were very friendly and helpful the apts were cleaned daily. We all enjoyed staying at the caribe as it was good value for money and wasnt far from the nightlife. I would recommend this hotel for couples or groups of friends."

lack of sleep
"just back from a week in the caribe apts in tenerife , its location is ideal as it is central to all night life and the beach , however if you want a relaxing holiday , stay away as with the teenage idiots that sleep all day and party all night with no respect for themselves or others around them , you will get no sleep . the pool was nice but had no atmosphere . the life gard could do with putting on some entertainment around the pool area . he was more interested in how he looked and did strike me as the type of person that would get wet if there was a crises.the staff were lovely but after 5 nights of no sleep we asked to see the manager.....he seemed to be always on a day off , lucky him .there's a lot to be said for poolside entertainment ...."

Went in 2009 but thought it would be good to give some advice
"Very good holiday, it was our first lads holiday. When we arrived there the information shared by the receptionist was very useful. The room sizes were good and the general cleanness of the hotel is good. However be careful when walking around by the pool/outside the hotel area you get pressured to purchase a pub crawl ticket which cost 45 euros. It really isn't worth it plus if you see the pub crawl walking around just join them. It was good that the playboy restaurant was underneath the hotel, which does good food for ok prices, which is based next to a shop which is convient as if you want to get food you don't have to travel miles away. Also because the hotel is not based that close to the clubs it's not that nosey. However it is like a two minute walk to where the clubs are. At night they have security walking around making sure your not making too much nose, they do have the tendency to kick you out if you are. Therefore if you are pre drinking you have to do it quite early. Also opposite is a strip club who try and grab you in when walking home at night. Also has a tennis court and mini golf which is good fun and reasonably priced and good watching them from your balcony, therefore if you are into tennis you can play in the sun perfect! Siam Park (water park) is just behind the apartment and in walking distance I recommend everyone to go because it is great fun and not too dear to get in either. Overall the holiday was good and is miles better than Gran Canaria. Have a good holiday. "

basic but comfortable
"Just come back from a week staying here. We were am ixed group of 28 ranging in ages from 19 to 40's. The rooms were large and cleaned every day except one. Was surprised to find washing up liquid soap and tea towels in a self catering apartment. The cleaners were all very friendly and Rene the bar manager is a real star !!!! The breakfasts were good value but didn't try any other meals. The location was perfect, 10 mins walk to the waterpark and to the beach, but far away enough from Veronicas to be quiet at night. I would definately stay there again with a group but would not reccomend it for families as no childrens pool or playground."

"stayed in the Caribe Apartments over the summer, the apartments were situated in a very central location with a short stroll to the beach and clubs. perfect place to stay if you are young. if you are planning on going to tenerife you must visit Destineys Bar, best breakfast on the island with the friendliest staff, john and linda are just the best ever, and at night there is also entertainment and is guaranted to b a brilliant nights craic.. would recommended to anyone. group of girls 19-21 N.Ireland"

"we are a family of three. we have been to tenerife three times before and have never been to a most discusting hotel.The pool is filthy, the tile grouting below the water line is black. i myself cought a chest infection and my daughter who could not swim and could only put her feet in the pool had a nasty rash from her knees downwards. The appartments where ok but for the floor to be dirty as they where only swept and not mopped so leaving your shower only to get your feet dirty.we complained to the manager only to be told that this was ok and the pool was cleaned every day, well i saw the cleaning in the morning only to see the room maids sweeping the dirt into the pool. As for being an 18 to 30 hotel i did not once see anyone go to the toilet even though about fifty youngsters were drinking all day. I have now reported this hotel to the spanish authorities and the BBC watchdog as this needs to be addressed.we have seen our GP back in the UK and my daughter and i are on medication. STAY AWAY."

Don't believe all the bad reviews . . .
"Just got back from the Caribe Apartment's went with a group of friends. On here i have seen many reviews saying its "bad" and "Don't go there". This hotel was great for a mates holiday. Hardly came across any cockroaches. Hotel staff at reception are a bit rude but we couldn't work out if thats because they don't understand us so we just blunt with them and they are fine. Pool is great always sunbeds in the sun virtually all day. Great Tennis court and a rubbish little Mini golf course but its free and just a good little laugh. Internet Cafe. Pool bar staff are very friendly and fun and very good food e.g Full English for 2.50euros. Cheap drinks with very high alcohol content. Very close to all shops like 30 second walk. Nice enough distance from all the noise of main town but no hassle at all to work. Over all a very good holiday for the price we paid. No problems at all. There is nothing wrong with Caribe. "

Stag Weekend - great time!
"Great 3 nights for six of us. Flew from Bournemouth. Apartments good size and clean. Easy walk to all the nightlife, but far enough away from clubs so no noise. Look out for the lifeguard - he got kicked out of the Gestapo for not having a sense of humour, but it made it all the more fun to take the mickey out of him. He even kept a log book at his table! we hid his chair and umbrella one night - lol. "

"Me and my boyfriend stayed in the caribe apartments last summer ( 09). we found it excelent...however they are the type of apartments that make you wish you went with a large group of people due to the atmosphere..nightlife is excelent, beaches are lovely, waterpark is in walking distance, food is unreal and cheap, apartments are clean and basic, cleaners are in almost every day! very good holiday and will be returning!"

NOT IMPRESSD ONE BIT!
"Hi All Myself(17) and my mum booked with globespan and decided on the caribe as is seemed not far away from the main area and also it seemed fine that we would hardly spend any time there at all and that a bed was all we really needed! Well. When we arrived we were grunted at by the receptionist and were told our rooms were not ready, so we went out to the bar and were grunted at again by the two bar staff on!! When our rooms were finally ready our key cards werent working, the safe wasnt working and when i went to say about it i was given a massively dirty look even though i wasnt in the wrong. 3 times that week, our key cards didnt work for the room. Not impressed. All the staff at caribe were rude! I couldnt sleep at night due to noise coming from the main strip and also from people on their balconys next to us. The cleaners are however superb. every day apart from 1 we had clean towels and whole place spotless. Also the person in the room above ours seemed to love to parade round in high heels at 1am which was horrible and the place is so thin you hear EVERYTHING, some things not very pleasent!! Also while we were there the pool was closed for 6 of the days out of 7 and we were told we could use hotel tropicales pool. That was fine but extremely annoying!!. Reccomendations: Would definately reccomend Yates, Linekers and Down Under Bar for a good night out although be careful because i had my drink spiked in one of them!! For food definately the Playboy restaurante! Its lovely, good food and fairly cheap aswell!!! SIAM PARK is a must!! Definately go there. Its wonderful!! Such a great day out!!! I hated going out at night because of people stopping you to go drink, eat etc. we even had one being extrmely rude to us!!! Overall the holiday was good but the accomodation was shocking. Would certainly go back to Tenerife again but not las americas and certainly not caribe appartements. "
