With its open-air lobby, stone walls, and lush garden, the Cariari has a warm, tropical feel. The rooms, which feature shiny tile floors and a neutral color scheme enlivened by pops of color, are roomy enough for a king-size bed or two double beds, although most of the bathrooms are a bit small. The suites are similarly appointed, but are even more spacious and have larger bathrooms. The hotel has a small casino as well as several restaurants, and it’s just in front of a small mall with even better  dining options.
