Not the best experience

Bombarded with $400 in extra room charges upon check in. Our reservation clearly stated 4 guests for 4 nights. Apparently, there is tiny print somewhere (which we never found) that states prices are based on only 2 guests per room. Reservation also states $10 resort credit per day, the staff and manager all stated they had no idea what that was and would not honor it. The suite we had wasn't any nicer than a Motel 6 and it smells terribly of mold. We had to ask every day for 4 towels and 4 wash cloths. The beach area is beautiful and the buffet breakfast was good (not $16/pp good). No one in our group would return here.

P.R. trip on the 4th of July

Over all nice, but TV signal was a problem especially on the rainy days. Housekeeping missed the soaps, water and tea 2 days.

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.

mini get away

It was good. Was not aware of all the extra charges that come with the hotel fees. Did not say anywhere when we booked our flight.

winter getaway

The overall experience was good. I booked a room requesting a firm mattress. Only to find out that the entire hotel has only one option. The sheets during day one wasn't as fresh and housekeeping was notified. all in all the location was good.

Friends vacations

The hotel and staff were great. Everyone was very friendly and helped us with everything! I do wish the pool bar was a little nicer though. Besides that everything was great.

Great location for the price

This was my first non all-inclusive vacation in the Carribean. The beach was great, but I thought the pool was below average. There were too many palm trees blocking the sun. If the pool doesn't bother you, I would definitely reccommend this hotel. It is very quiet and peaceful (although I would have rathered a hotel with a little more entertainment since we traveled as friends in our mid twenties), but regardless the location is great for going to the other hotels for restaurants and night life. The only thing to really do at night in the hotel is to go to the casino but there are some fun places to go to around Isla Verde Avenue within walking distance.

A supermarket run to Pueblo in the beginning of the trip at Pueblo made things a lot easier and more affordable.

Awesome!

Great staff!!!! The hotel was located near the airport so its great for arriving and departing. But not so great for going to Old San Juan and other travel places since it's located far from everything.

Unbeatable location for the price

Thoroughly enjoyed the pool/beach area ... the morning breakfast buffet was excellent (getting two meals for the price of one helped out there) ... the Banana bar/cafe was a great place to get something lite to eat late in the evening.
