We stayed at this hotel as part of an Eco Tour. It was a very nice location, complete with clean rooms, a nice pool and a nice dining area. We stayed in a bungalow, which I really liked. The only annoyance was the doors were not 100% bug proof, so some critters found there way in. You also have to...

This property is absolutely beautiful. Lovely, landscaped grounds. We stayed in a cabin that was very comfortable. Expect to see some bugs. You are in a hot, humid place. Pool is very nice. The breakfast buffet (included) was really good. It had the traditional favorites each day, but changed it up and added some different things with it. Lots of...

Our group of eight ladies stayed here for three nights and found our individual casas superb. It was a little slow checking in for some of us but the attention and hospitality made up for it all. Each place was in a separate quiet location. The breakfasts were great, the masseuse wonderful, and, the pool welcoming!

We had a very nice, simple room at the tip end of the property, almost in the trees. Very efficient AC, we missed a fridge, though. Huge and excellent breakfast buffet (the best of our two-week journey). Pretty close to the beach (amazing white sand beach !!). The room closing system (sliding door) is a bit strange and not excellent...

We stayed here last year, and had a wonderful experience. The grounds and rooms are beautiful. Its very natural - while sitting in the pool, I looked way up into the trees and could see monkeys! The Rooms are little two story cabanas. We were on the second floor and felt like we were staying in a tree house in...

Upon our arrival the staff welcomed us with a very pleasant tasting fresh fruit juice. We stayed in a bungalow with the Hotel amenities with a Carribean touch. The bungalow was well maintained. I especially enjoyed hearing the midnight rain. It added a very romantic feeling. The food was good and the Breakfast buffet was exceptional. . The town was...

I enjoyed the hotel and it's relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Great location across from playa Cocles. Best beach in PV. Breakfast food was basic but the coffee was good and strong. The beds in the rooms are very hard, be prepared. Pillows are about as thick as two sheets on top other. Room cleaned...

So, the Totem hotel is being bought by Cariblue hotel and they are combining the two. Luckily they are right next to each other. We stayed in a family suite which was nice for what is was. We had ac, nice beds, plenty of room. My only complaint would be that it would have been nice to have had some...

It was bought by Cariblue hotel and is changing its name. The new two story doubles have absolutely no sound insulation. None what so ever... I could hear people in all three other units when they whispered! We had loud rowdy neighbours so was uncomfortable at some points. The beds are hard and the pillows flat.

MarielaTotem, Gerente at Cariblue Hotel, responded to this review

Our standard rooms, the basics ones we have, were built based on concrete walls of about 25 cm of it each wall. They were built this way to protect the privacy of our customers, and to prevent the noise that could disturb others and their stay with us. We always double check that the tranquility of our guests is not...

We had a room in Totem and learned that they are merging with Cariblue. This is fantastic, because the pool at Cariblue is awesome, while the one at Totem is tiny, shallow and ugly. It is also located next to the street. Our room was clean and lovely, the shower and bathroom were clean and worked. We had twin beds,...
