Review of Carana Beach Hotel

Aleksandr Glazacev

Elegant new hotel with a wonderful beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful; our food allergies were remembered. A private pool room is perfect for quiet secluded relaxation. Great ending for our honeymoon trip.

Review of Carana Beach Hotel

Lauren Munroe

We loved Carana Beach Hotel. It sits on an absolutely gorgeous white sand beach, and is in good proximity to Beau Vallon & Victoria. We really enjoyed that it was in a fairly central location because it made it much easier for us to get out and explore! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, our room was decorated so beautifully, and everyone was very professional!
