The first thing to know about this Punta Cana resort is that it’s about a 12-minute walk from the beach, and set inside a golf course resort. The hotel has a pretty outdoor pool and hot tub, and when you’re ready to hit the beach, the free shuttle can take you to Arena Blanca Beach, about a half-mile away. Rooms range from standard rooms with a king bed to one-bedroom apartments that can accommodate families of five. The golf course is two miles away and there’s free private parking onsite at the hotel.

It was my first time in Punta Cana, and the service in this Hotel Karibo was great. The staff was very friendly, especially Javier at front desk. The rooms were very clean. I really recommend this place.
The apartment has a good size and was ok for a 3 star standard but 3 issues affected our stay:
- One of the showers was not working. They fixed it right away after we reported the issue.
- The quality of the towels was terrible. After complaining they sent us more decent towels.
- The bathrooms were not cleaned well. All the 3 toilets had stains and were not properly cleaned. Unit 905
