Great getaway by rainforest

We had a great time, the hotel was nice and the staff was friendly. You should have a car if you're staying here. This is a great place to stay in if you want to go to the rainforest and be between San Juan and the east coast of Puerto Rico. Food at the hotel is nothing special. We ended up going to La Familia bakery a couple miles west, great breakfast sandwiches, big enough to share and great prices. Also suggest going to Farjado on the east coast. Definitely would suggest to friends.

Staff aims to please.

The resort is at a perfect location. Steps from a beautiful beach! Limited times for dining options on site because of off season, but the staff are very friendly and accomodating since renovations in progress. Mgr. Edwin quickly put us in an Ocean Suite when we were unable to bear through a very powerful detergent odor that would not dissipate over an extended period in our booked room. The new accomodation was perfect! - especially for my wife. Rebecca (in Shimas restaurant) was an excellent server. Couldn't ask for a better place. Will definitely return in future. Resort is right next to beautiful rainforest where hiking and other activities can be enjoyed.

Getting to San Juan for sightseeing and dining can be very pricey, Highly recommend renting a car. Hotel is steps from beach.

If your looking for a killer beach, this is the place! Huge, clean and private. Get a rental car at the airport, hotel is not close to anything but the rain forest and taxi cabs are VERY expensive and VERY sketchy.

Perfect Vacation!

The hotel is getting completely remodeled so everything is brand new. The room was beautiful with a great balcony. Hotel concierge was amazing, they were so helpful in making our trip truly memorable. The pools are great and the Iguana's Pub restaurant was absolutely amazing. Be sure to get a mofongo dish. The beach is close and convenient but not the most crystal clear water. For the caribbean I was definitely disappointed. It was so affordable as a vacation package and I would highly recommend to anyone!

Renovating

Renovated was the excuse we heard about lack of quality service. Beautiful location and view. I would go back after renovations are complete.

Great Spot, Still Renovating

Overall the place really suited our needs. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, though it did seem apparent that it was off season. There was always a restaurant open, but some nights others would be closed without much notice to us. Great deal overall.

Hotel was nice, parking garage needs better lighting, & remodel. Parking garage elevator was broken for about 1/2 our stay - long walk to and from garage. Tiki restaurant on beach closes the kitchen @ 6pm (really!?) The hotel sits on the beach with awesome view, unfortunately it's a long drive from main road & roads on facility are poorly lit and very narrow. If you plan on staying @ the beach your entire vacation, it's great but very expensive to eat & drink there. The hotel is far from most sight-seeing attractions. So make sure you rent a car if you plan on going off-site.

Muy Bueno!

Even though our flight was a little late our transportation was there to take us. The hotel was beautiful and our room had just be remodeled and had a balcony with a view of the pool and the ocean, perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. What else can I say but that we would go back and do it again.
