Let’s get the negatives out of the way first: rooms here are dowdy and dated, and the internet is turtle slow. But when you get over those downsides, we think you’ll like Casa del Caribe, especially at the low price you’ll likely be paying (surf the internet). A half a block from bustling Ashford Avenue, this quiet, 1940’s era guesthouse is hidden away behind garden walls and under towering shade trees. The veranda and tropical courtyard are lovely, the air-conditioning in the guestrooms works well and the mattresses are comfy. Most importantly, you’re in the middle of Condado, just a 2-minute walk to beach and top hotels and restaurants.
