I have a few questions for anybody who has stayed at either of these hotels. Caribbean villas has a one bedroom suite on the ground floor that is "ocean view." I have been in some condos on the beach, and they build the building at an angle so that everybody has an ocean view, even though the unit is far back. But to see the ocean, you have to go out on the balcony. Is this the way Caribbean Villas is? Or are the ocean view rooms right on the water? On their website, I see a big white building that looks like there are two ground floor units on the beach. But I can't find any other photos of the place. Any information would be very helpful.
About Corona del Mar. Has anybody been in one of their standard ocean front hotel rooms on the 3rd floor? The penthouse rooms are not available for the time I'm looking to go. They said the standard room is just smaller than the penthouse and it is $10 less. It says queen size bed with mini-fridge. So I'm guessing no kitchen facilities. Is there a couch, a table and chairs, a dresser, or what? Says it is on the 3rd floor with a fabulous view, which sounds very appealing. But I'm trying to get an idea of how large the room actually is.
I've always enjoyed being on upper floors in a hotel on the beach because of the view. So I'm wondering if you stay on the ground floor in Caribbean Villas, do you see the water much? Or do you mostly see the trees and a bunch of a people outside?
Thanks for any help!!
