Dirty

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 28, 2010
The sheets were dirty and we saw roaches in our room. We slept with our clothes on. We will never stay here again.

Nice Location and Staff, Bad Bed Bugs!

Would not recommend Sat, Jun 12, 2010
We had an amazing vacation in Puerto Rico. The Oceana was in a great location for us. It was a few blocks from our car rental place, the famous Condado Beach, and the main freeway. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we appreciated that. The room although it was a villa was in need of updating. The tile in the bathroom was old, the tile in the room was a little dirty, and on about the second to last day we noticed that the although the sheets were clean, they had little stains. The WORSE part we didn't even realize until we got home, Villa 2 has bed bugs. We did some research wondering how we didn't know and bed bug bites can take up to 14 days to show on your skin. Our bites showed up after we were home. I wouldn't recommend Oceana for the mere fact that they have bed bugs, I am still itching a week later!

Be aware of Hidden fees!

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 1, 2010
We payed non-refundable price of 85.39$ online for a room with two beds. When we came to the the hotel we were asked to pay extra 35$. The manager claimed that we did reservation for one person, not two (with two beds??). After some bargaining the extra charge was reduced to 5$. We finally got a room with one king size bed, not what we payed for initially! The worst thing is that the price of 85$ was non-refundable, so we could not turn our backs and go to another hotel. Conclusion: Hotel was OK. But hidden fees is a bad style! I would keep away from this place.

Cost effective + good location for beach

Would recommend Sat, May 22, 2010
Appears to be well run by a caring owner, but horribly understaffed. One person trying to serve food while they check in guests. No breakfast available even at 8 am due to late staff. Continental breakfast is useless if you can't eat before you go to the airport. No shuttle bus. Locks on doors are a joke. No internet in rooms. Other than that, it was great!

THE WORST EVER!!!!!!

Would not recommend Mon, May 17, 2010
Online this hotel looks decent..THIS IS HORRIBLE FOR A WEEKEND STAY, BUT OK FOR AN OVERNIGHT! We checked in at 12 midnight, checked out at 8am and went to the Sheraton.

Oceana "Pura Vida"

Would recommend Fri, Apr 2, 2010
Very friendly and helpful, bilingual staff. Hotel one block from the ocean (clean, wide beach). Courtyard contains small but delightful pool. Very quiet--even at night. Continental breakfast adequate. Good family hotel, or for quiet couples. Restaurant is vegetarian with vegan selections, and you can eat by the pool. Public bus is also one block away (next to large drug store). Rooms are a little run down, but I only slept there, so that was OK. Small drawback--not very well known by taxi drivers, so carry their business card with you. I'll be back.

Money saver

Short walk to beach, bus, cafecito. Short drive (taxi) to airport, Old San Jan, Cordero.

Well ... it's cheap anyway!

Would not recommend Thu, Mar 18, 2010
Although they highly praised their vegan food, it was terrible. But that was okay, for I'm not a vegetarian and there are plenty of restaurants around. Also, there was always a strange smell coming from the bar area; they never had the ceiling fans on in the main dining area, which would have been nice; and you had to dodge the big lamps hanging down over the tables in the back dining area in order to have a conversation--and here the fans were on, but no one sat there--go figure!! The rooms were just okay. Not very pleasant to be in (and it turned out we had more rainy days than sunny ones to deal with this trip), and it is amazing what just a little attention to them would have changed, like: repaint with a pleasant color other than drab gray and add a little art to the walls; have at least a soap dish in the shower, instead of having to use the floor or window seal; put the bathroom shelf on the wall next to the sink, rather than on the floor much lower than the sink, so there is some place other than the toilet top to place your toiletry bag, etc.; and make sure the floors are swept of the sand before new guests (us!) arrive. The pool garden area was never attended to during our stay of 1 week. It was always in need of a sweeping and the plants could have used some attention too. Water pressure was irregular too, as one friend was totally soaped up in the shower when the water stopped again and he had to wait awhile to rinse off. In general, this place has more the feeling of a student hostel rather than a real hotel. The sad thing is that it could be very, very nice, if there were just a little more attention to detail. But happily, it was cheap and 1 block from the beach, and fulfilled our budget needs

Dining

Some excellent inexpensive restaurants a block away on Loisa: 1 Greek; Yiyo (Puerto Rican--excellent!!); Bebo's (Puerto Rican--very good). And more places still in walking distance. Also, a couple very good but more expensive restaurants in local inns on the beach.

Not bad for the price

Would recommend Mon, Mar 15, 2010
Hotel reception clerk was very friendly and attempted to meet every need. Not a bad deal for those that are going to be out during the day..... Close to local shopping and dining and two blocks from the beach. Easy access to all popular sites and tours.

Dining

Short walk to local dining and beach. TAXICABS are readily available, and in-expensive.
