A good stay

Beautiful resort . This place would be a 5 star hotel if they paid attention to the details. Ice towels & beach loungers were limited. Assistance from staff was also limited. They were friendly but always too busy to assist . It's a beautiful resort and we had a good stay but they need to bump it up a notch. I would recommend but w side notes.

This hotel is located at the perfect location but the hotel is old and lack of proper management. Disappointing to say the least.

Awesome Location, Okay Staff

My husband and I went to this hotel for four days for our honeymoon. Overall, it was great because the room was incredible, with spectacular views. We upgraded to the Red Level and were able to enjoy the free breakfast (which was great) and the more private pool. We didn't go to the restaurants onsite because they were pricey. The staff was alright and didn't seem up to par with the luxury of the property. We even got walked in on by housekeeping the first day we were there...no knock or anything. We would stay again because the hotel has the perfect location in Puerto Rico, far enough away from downtown San Juan so you get peace and quiet, but close enough where you can drive in to enjoy the nightlife.

Go to the Luquillo Kiosks for authentic, cheap Puerto Rican food. It's about a 10 minute drive from the hotel.

Beautiful Resort

My husband and I chose this resort for our honeymoon! We booked the Redlevel oceanfront room and were beyond pleased with how beautiful the rooms and property are. As for the butler service we weren't pleased with. Not once did we receive what we requested. Don't order the pizza lol it's terrible. The other restuaraunts there are amazing. We ate at the cafe for breakfast and for dinner we tried the Japanese and the steakhouse of which both were wonderful and so was the service. We will be returning!

Great family experience

We loved this place. great location. The resort is huge. Pool is big, was not to busy. The room was great, with nice balcony. The only thing i did not like this resort has a very small beach. and the ocean is not clean. we could only swill few steps away, but we did diving and my husband loved it. The ice in the resort is really a problem. It was always empty. All stuff was nice, thought majority know only Spanish, but this is not a problem they could still understand you. No other charges. we were afraid that the resort will charge us resort fee, but there was zero.

Good experience !

The resort is a paradise. We had a great adventure. The room were very large and comfortable .The service is good. All stuff is friendly. The resort is a little expensive(in my opinion ) with all included. And you pay parking fee. The beach was not as goog as we thought . Not too much sand and a lot of seaweed in the ocean water. But it is a great opportunity to do snorkeling and watch fish in the ocean:)

Poor experience

This hotel is extremely unorganized and not on top of house keeping. EVERY DAY I HAD TO CALL FOR WASH CLOTHES & TOWELS... The shower and toilets wasn't properly cleaned. The shower always still had hair after house keeping supposedly came to clean. They have excellent resturants on the resort!

away from the action

i thought the hotel itself was nice. The food was really over priced and the location of the resort is an 80$ taxi ride to San Juan. If you want to just experience the resort life and thats it, this is your choice. Also, the hotel entertainment wasnt the best.

Our Honeymoon Vacation

The location is absolutely stunning. Beautiful golf course, the beach and pool areas are fabulous and the architecture and design of the hotel itself definitely impressed me. If you are looking for a quiet resort with just enough activity and restaurants, acess to local food and grocery stores its perfect. Friday was ouf last night and the lobby had a great DJ playing salsa and meringue... excellent. Most of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly, some could use some customer service tips but overall i would most definitely go back again and again.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

I would definitely rent a car when you stay there. They have car rental facilities on site at the hotel. That way you can go and come as you please. San Juan is about 40 or so minutes from the hotel or you can take a tour there. We had a car so we could get to all of the attractions easily, the local food stands and grocery store.

HORRIBLE (5/02/14)

WE ARRIVED AND UPGRADED TO RED LEVEL WASTE OF MONEY. FREE BREAKFAST IS OK BUT THE HAPPY HOUR IS A WASTE AND FOOD IS NASTY. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE NICE PICTURES OF THE GRAND POOL, IT IS OLD, THE TILE IS CHIPPED OFF AND YOU CAN FEEL THE CONCRETE IN BETWEEN YOUR TOES. AS FOR THE "BUTLER" SERVICE IT'S A WASTE AND DON'T EXPECT THEM TO EVER SHOW UP. FRONT DESK WORKERS SPEAK TO EACH OTHER AND COULD CARELESS THAT YOU ARE WAITING FOR HELP.
