Class reunion back home trip!

Would recommend Sat, Sep 5, 2015
This hotel was the perfect choice for my budget and my fiancee to come visit and him to have a glance at PR for the 1st time on a budget of 4 days during Labor Day weekend. The only downside is the locaton is inside a gated residential area and there is only street parking available. I had no problem finding spots but the local residents also use the access to the beach so it gets busy on weekends. Highly recommend it if you just simple but comfortable with access to the beach at your doorstep. Close walking distance access to main rest/eating, shopping in Condado (Ashford Avenue) and 10-15 minutes from Isla Verde and Airport. Will go back again!

DONT DO IT- this place is Horrible

Would not recommend Fri, Feb 14, 2014
2-6-2014 We arrived after a long flight - we had to wait for our room as they were cleaning -THE ROOM - was "nasty" ( looked nothing like the pics) I was hoping it would get better but it only got worst! sticky floors - poorly lit, smelled liked an old shoe- and the the doors to the beach we were promised opened their restaurant first. NO phones in the room. The bathroom was the best part. When we addressed our issues with management- we were told that even if we left and didn't stay they could not refund the charges, based on an alleged email they sent us - we had to cancel within 7 days. I booked the Hotel long before we took our vacation, how were we to know we would have issues, we demanded that Administration calls us back to discuss.. we are still waiting for the call. Like I said- the night charge is not worth the place. PS when our cab driver came in to us the facilities -he was denied- and they were nasty about it

Christmas 2013

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 31, 2013
Set in a neighborhood, this is a run down, guest house. It is not close to anything, going anywhere started with a $40.00 round trip cab ride. The beach was small and not clean, filled with seaweed and trash. The rooms were dirty, there was no hot water (they said it was solar heated, did not have a hot shower for 4 days). The toilets did not flush well, we were asked to put our toilet in the trash rather than in the toilet. Though the staff was pleasant, they were very slow. The food was ok, but you could not charge anything to the room and the restaurant and bar area were dirty. No internet unless you were in one spot in the lobby. They could not print boarding passes. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone, I spent twice what I should have for this dirty, run down guest house. Extremely disappointing

Attractions

Flamingo Beach, though difficult and expensive to get to, was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen

worst hotel ever

Would not recommend Sat, Dec 28, 2013
OMG This is the worst hotel ever. If you plan to stay at a relax hotel I do not recommend this one. 1: the room is so small, no garbage can that you can throw your trash away. Only one small trash can in the bathroom that you throw the toilet paper away since you can't flush down the toilet. NO HOT WATER so prepare to take a cold shower if you plan to stay there. 2: The beach is dirty, the picture you look online is deceiving It look nothing like it. 3: They do not serve breakfast plus no vending machine either. So make sure you buy your own bottle of water to your room. 4: The hotel is a little far from all the restaurant and do not walk out at night. I would not recommend this hotel.

Dining

Stay at a hotel that you can walk to all different restaurant or you will be paying a lot of taxi fare back and forth.

Ok for one night

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 2, 2013
When I asked the clerk if there were WIFI she said yes - but then went to room and it was not available. Went back to clerk who said WIFI was only in the lobby area. There was no hot water for the shower. The sign said they use solar power to "Save the Earth" - but had to run the water for 20 minutes and it never got warm. We were there on a Saturday night and the room was in the back but still the noise from the bar was overwhelming.,

Visiting Old San Juan was an Adventure.

Would recommend Mon, Dec 2, 2013
It was good...simple. Obvisouly its not a 5 star hotel...but its good enough to get some Sleep and rest. The location is perfect cause you're in front of the beach. But overall its cool.
