Set on Carenero Beach, Careening Cay Resort has a beautiful location surrounded by jungle. It has a restaurant, and bright accommodation with sea views. Each air-conditioned studio and bungalow has wooden furnishings and is set in the gardens or on stilts over the water. Free Wi-Fi is available in the restaurant. Guests can enjoy a range of Caribbean cuisine in the Careening Cay's Cosmic Crab Café, which overlooks the sea. There is also a furnished seafront dock, where guests can relax with a drink. The property also offers refreshing cocktails and daily happy hour specials. The resort offers guests free use of its kayaks, and local activities include surfing, fishing and sailing. Guests will find beaches on the other side of the island or on neighbouring islands.
Everything, hotel from Hell was the name affectionately given to the experience by other hotel guests. Definitely not a 4 star hotel, barely a 1.5 star experience. Food was awful at best, breakfast buffet featured hard boiled eggs, some fruit and day old bread/pancakes. Service was slow and inconsistent. If you want a warm shower everyday or even a cold shower, both the water and heat are a daily gamble. The owners yell and belittle the staff in plan site and it makes the atmosphere feel like you are at a bad thanksgiving dinner with the angry/hostile hosting couple. If you seek never ending drama and excuses this is the place for you.
