The Rooms are clean and spacious and comfortable. Doesnt matter if you use the beach or the pool you will be pleased. The hotel is clean and is well kept. We love the Wyndham.

Fantastic Beach, fantastic vacation

The property is fantastic, rooms clean. Some renovations were currently in progress but didn't affect us at all. The beach felt very private since the resort is 20 mins east of San Juan. Restaurants were pricey but good. All in all, will definitely be going back to this resort again as this is right next to the rainforest and the beach is just super great.

Family holiday trip

We stayed here for the beach, tennis facilities and proximity to the El Yunque rain forest. We rented a car to visit the rain forest and Old San Juan. The beach is very nice, the grounds are lovely. The restaurants at the resort are good but we did spend a lot of money on food--it might be cheaper to eat locally but the convenience was worth the extra money for us. Service was a bit slow at the bars and coffee kiosk, these areas seemed understaffed for the holiday week, especially when a large tour group arrived on December 30. The concierge service and room service were excellent. It was fun to watch the staff feeding the iguanas in the morning.

Relaxing trip

Great location, beautiful rain forest view, however the service was too slow and we did not understand why we have to make reservations for dinner when half the tables were empty. Also although the location was great it was far away from everything. You just can not walk to another place for a cup of coffee or food.

beautiful place- with view of el yunque

our room faced "el Yunque", but we were on the 5th floor, which was still overlooking the main lobby entrance by only a few floors. That was probably the only negative I can mention. I have been to PR at least a dozen times, and this place was one of the nicer hotels by a long shot. A little bit more money than I usually like to spend, but my Puerto Rican esposa was happy! I would definitely splurge and stay there again if we found ourselves on that side of the island.

Beautiful location, great staff!

It was a beautiful location and the staff was Wonderful. The spa was also very nice. I was a little surprised at the rooms though. They were a little outdated and had some general maintenance issues. Overall it was a great trip though!

December Vacation

This was my second stay at the Rio Mar and had a wonderful time. The hotel was decorated beautifully for the holidays and the staff is excellent and extremely helpful. It's housed in a gated community with a beautiful golf course and is very close to El Yunque and about 35-40 min from San Juan. All of the staff I met spoke English well and provided many great suggestions on things to do. The pools are kept clean and there are some fun/silly pool activities that kids can enjoy, as well as watch the staff feed the native iguanas. There's direct access to the beach and if you walk down to the right side there is a quiet river which is very peaceful in the mornings. I went to the Casino once and they have slots and card games, etc., good atmosphere, but not something I really enjoy. The restaurants serve ok food and but are a little pricey. I prefer to get the full experience and like to drive east to the Kioskos (large strip of restaurants on the beach), further into Luqillo and visit friends at Metropol (Puerto Rican/Cuban Food), or grab some pinchos (shiskabobs sp?) from a local vendor. There's also a grocery store (Amico) three lights to the west as well. Overall, great trip and wonderful experience!

Anniversary celebrations.

The hotel was conveniently located from Fajardo and San Jaun. We wanted to stay close to north east of PR, as most of the activities are located in this area but not too far away from airport or San Jaun. The hotel views the ocean on one side and rainforest on the other. We booked the ocean view room but were given the room on the first floor where you can only view the hotel pool. Initially the lady at the reception denied to change the room mentioning no other room was available, which was not true. After a brief talk she was able to accommodated us on the sixth floor. The hotel charges an additional $15 per day for car parking. All said we really enjoyed our stay at Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa.
