I'd stay again.

I really liked the location and price for the hotel. Although it wasn't a four star hotel, it made up with friendly employees and great location to the beach.

You get what you paid for.

Pros: Staff are so kind, friendly, helpful with information. The beach is just around the corner. Good for a real experience of how the locals live. Safe. Its only a 5-10 minute drive from the main attraction especially Old San Juan. Cons: Let's just say it's not the Marriot. Very outdated. It's own restaurant wasn't even open. My opinion: even though it wasn't the best hotel, I still didn't mind being there. I didn't plan to be in the hotel for my whole trip anyway. Also it's more for a place for planning a vacation with friends, not family!

it was ok!!

The Hotel was nice, some things in the rooms weren't as good as i would of liked, but it was a nice place. The only bad thing about the hotel its that you have to wait for the staff to open the front door every time you want to get in, what happen to me was that one night i went out and when i went back to the hotel, I was waiting outside for about 15 minutes because nobody was at the front desk. The staff its nice except for this guy that works night shift, not a very nice guy, but other than that everybody was nice, i only went to the hotel to sleep and that's it, spend most of time out.

rennovations

friendly staff, but slow with food and drink service. renovations were being done while we stayed so that was annoying, but it looked nice when they were all done. NO TELEPHONE in the room was bad. calling from my cell phone cost a ton.

Cheap but not worth it

Not up to date, small, more like a motel than a hotel.
