An ok place to stay

The pictures gave us a different impression than it actually was. Most of the hotel staff is very friendly though and we liked that the pool and beach were so close. The hotel food is not that great and very over priced. The location of the hotel is also very far from the main stores. The area is very safe though. I personally would stay at a different hotel the next time around.

Great, but could use some work.

Hotel was very nice, but we were shown to a room already occupied when we first checked in. Our room was very nice, but when looking at the details you could tell that the work was poorly done, especially the baseboards in the bathroom. The shower water was pretty cold most of the time and we did have to call and complain about the noisy children in the room next door on our last night. We also witnessed one of the hammocks outside collapse on a couple and knock the woman unconscious...Other than that, the beach and pool was nice. I would not recommend eating at the buffet at the Salsa "restaurant" they have there. Waaay to expensive and not worth it. Staff was very courteous.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Don't eat at the Salsa restaurant in the hotel. Waay too expensive and not worth it! Don't take a taxi to Old San Juan. Take the bus! Only .75 cents a ride and you can take the T5 or the C53. Also, the Pueblo market is only a 15 walk and you can get groceries to cut down the cost of food while on your vacay. We bought milk and cereal and fruit so we didn't have to buy breakfast at all. Saved a lot! Just google where it is before you go as the roads are a little misleading.

clean, friendly peaceful

Great location, beautiful views on the beach at the end of the strip. The staff could not have been any better. This trip was our 29th wedding anniversary, got into a beautiful clean room with a view. Met a peaceful relaxing experience. Able to bond with my queen and explore this beautiful tropical paradise together.

Fabulous for couples

All the hotel restaurants were delicious! I loved the convenience of the hotel in regards to ocean & pool amenities. The swim-up bar was a bit pricy!

Mid May 2012

Room was excellent and staff was mostly helpful. Some wait staff were not interested in us. Food very expensive for value. Drinks very expensive. Nice beach and pool but beach attractions expensive and hard to access. Beach bar/restaurant was seldom open.Would stay again but will try adjacent hotels first.

Expected Better Service

For the price (which is on the high end) I did expect better attention to be provided for service. Amenities and activities (good nightlife on weekends) were very good but the service was slow (even when the bar was not full) and I had to resort to taken car of my own service when on the beach. In some cases the hotel did not have sufficient staff. I would recommend this hotel to friends but would preface by letting them know that they might need to be a little assertive in getting service.
