I agree with aqtpie2-Caribe is a great place!!!Get the breakfast burrito-fabulous-on hangover mornings it was enough for two, otherwise I would hog it all to myself. $ very reasonable, the people who stay there for extended periods ( as well as short timers) were very friendly and I can't say enough for the way they treat you when you're there. Sorry I got carried away-I will answer your questions in order:
1)Within biking distance, they have bikes there for the guests. It is a little bit of a distance but if you stop along the way for a cold one it is nothing. At the north end you get stuck when the hand ferry closes in the eve.
2)What's this about a nice beach...they have a great beach, when we were there they even had floating islands out in the ocean for guests to chill on, the pool is fabulous, just a step off the beach and the bar is great party not too late, but late enough.
3) I would have to pull out my recpts but I remember it was really reasonable-especially compared to the north end.
4)My husband and I were the same way, we wanted a hut type room ( which is why we booked at JE but ended up not liking the north end) we got to Caribe and that went out the window, didn't give it a second thought.
5)A/C cranks!!! Great restaraunt coffee is ready in the AM just go down and take a seat and enjoy the ocean which is right in front of you! No tennis that I saw, but we did get a good volleyball game going. Great dive shop, we did several snorkle trips & a cave tubing-they all came to the dock and picked us up.
Whew I should write an advertisement for them
Truly we enjoyed ourselve immensely.
