Caribbean Hotels | Places to Stay in Caribbean

August 5, 2022 Esmeralda Fenner

Lounging on smooth Caribbean sands can be more restorative than the most luxurious spa treatment. Stretches of white and black beaches spill into the coolest, bluest waters of your dreams. A Caribbean island is the perfect literal jumping off point for a snorkeling or dive excursion, and the sea life seems just as welcoming as the islanders themselves. Sipping a tropical a cocktail while the sun paints the sky in shades of tangerine, you’ll ask yourself: “Is this heaven?”

As soon as you arrive at the resort you are greeted with champagne. The staff were all really friendly. The resort was always clean and well maintained. The food was great and the service was very good. They had activities available to do if you wanted everyday. Housekeeping was very good the room was always spotless when we came back from our day out. Our concierge Matiel Reyes was always attentive and constantly checking in with us to make sure our time there was perfect. We highly recommend this resort. We are already planning our trip back.

2 weeks in paradise

Reviewed By Natashaxox

We travelled as a family of 7 to Dreams Royal Beach, for 3 of us it was our third time at this hotel, however when we last came it was Secrets not Dreams. Since changing to Dreams we did notice a lot of differences most not for the best, however still had a lovely holiday. There are 4 a la cartes which we found over 2 weeks became very repetitive as the menu doesn’t change however there were a lot of options to choose from on each menu. The hotel itself is amazing with beautiful pools. Punta Cana does seem to have a seaweed problem on its beaches, however this hotel worked day and night to clear this so it was nice for the guests, which didn’t go unnoticed. Would like to give a special shout out Karina who was excellente and had our drinks for breakfast ready before we even ordered them! Also Ceaser at the seaside grill and Yudetel at the interlude bar who was fantastic! If you choose to come to this hotel you will definitely not be disappointed!!

My stay at Secret Royal Punta Cuna was absolutely amazing. This was a special trip for my daughter’s high school graduation and I have to tell you that this was an exceptional treat. When arriving to the hotel we were paired with a Preferred escort named Manuel Garcia. He was the best. He gave us a tour of the resort and provided the list of daily events and activities offered by the hotel. He assisted us with dinner reservations and made us feel very safe during our stay. He was available 24/7 to answer and questions that we had and was always very excited for us enjoy the beautiful island of Dominican Republic and this luxurious hotel. I will definitely be back because of him and will sign up for the AMR club membership. Thanks Manuel.

S Hotel - Jamaican Classy

Reviewed By richardmaloney1988

Where do I even begin. The S Hotel is top notch. First off, it is a five minute drive from the Montego Bay airport. No need to deal with the wild Jamaican roads. The property is beautiful, situated at one of Jamaica’s most famous and wonderful beaches, Doctors Cave Beach Club. There is a main pool and a breathtaking Sky Pool. The Staff at S Hotel was attentive and treats all guests with such respect. There staff was the best I have experienced at all of my many stays to Jamaica. The hotel is all-inclusive so drink as many Red Stripes and eat as much Jerk Chicken as your little heart desires. The 24/7 Cafe serves up the finest Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, pastries and Jamaican Patties. We came to the hotel with your two young daughters (4 and 2) and the staff treated them like royalty. The Spa Experience was so great, I got an 80 minute Deep Tissue Massage and loved it. Walking distance to Montego Bay’s Hip Strip but if I’m being honest, there is no reason to leave the property. S pays homage to Jamaica culture with class. Can’t wait to book my next stay at S. Trip typeVacation · Family

Customer Experience Should Be A Priority...

This is my first day and I can already say I am displeased with my experience. It's definitely isn't a 5 star experience. I've already had to complain about cleanliness and my HVAC. I heard good things but I definitely do not have a good first impression of this resort. Wish I had gone back to Iberostar Grand where they have amazing customer service. Hopefully this will improve and I can update my review.

Beautiful Resort

Reviewed By plfarrmore

Beautiful resort and very spacious suites. Clean, well-manicured grounds and plenty of space to find a spot without being too close to others. Our experience with our assigned butler was excellent. Jeffrey was attentive and checked in with us daily just to make sure we had what we needed to have a wonderful stay. He consistently responded to all text messages and keep us informed. The staff were very pleasant and happy to be of service. Kennedy (bartender) was very nice and made his specialty drink which was fantastic. On a not so positive note, our room had an extreme mildew smell which they tried to resolve and offered to change the room if the remedies did not work. We chose to keep our room and not risk the chance of another problem. Overall, the food was not the best, however my husband loved the lamb chops at the French restaurant. We both enjoyed dinner at the Japanese restaurant. The drinks were good, but I'd recommend going to the bar to get them yourself. It could be just us, but it seemed when drinks were brought to us while on the beach or pool, they seemed to be watered down, but tastier when prepared in front of you. Ocean view (room 4310) was more like a partial view as it was blocked by a huge palm tree. We'll likely visit again with hopes that the food improves over time. I'd recommend to friends and family with a disclaimer about the food. They are close to perfection.
