Peaceful place, nice view, room conveniently close to the pool, great staff and delicious breakfast. The pool was pretty nice too, the hotel is small but the pool had a good size to it, with a deep enough area for swimming. This hotel is located next to a busy road, yet the way it was built with the rooms facing the sea coast and away from the road guaranteed its tranquility. Since it is pretty small, it wouldn't be hard to miss when driving down that road.
The hotel looked very scary there was no lighting. We miss the stop cause there was no sign that let me know that there was a hotel. I would never stay there too scary. The hotel person was very nice made me feel welcome but I cancelled my reservation cause I couldn't stay there any night. The hotel does not look like the picture on the website.
Very clean room and around. Excellent staff. Beautiful view, a dream view.
The Parador is less than a hour South from San Juan, it is very quiet, the staff is friendly, the room was very clean. It is less than an hour drive to any of the eastern Puerto Rico locations. The view is incredible!!! It has a nice full breakfast (not just continental), for lunch or dinner you'll have to travel to another close by parador, the drive is about 2 minutes and they are open till 9:00 pm, which is also where the beach is. Otherwise you'll have to drive anywhere from 10-20 minutes, which is still not too bad. The room which I stayed in was not 2011 updated, but it is also not supposed to be!!! For the price you can beat it!!! It is meant as an old fashioned bed & breakfast type place, could not connect to the internet at all, but I also did not ask about it either. The room had a small fridge, microwave, small sitting area with table, armoire with a small tv, full bath with shower, (2) night tables with lamps, plenty of outlets to charge phones, cameras, laptops etc., the AC is activated with the door keycard in order to save electricity (within 10 minutes the room was nice and cool), queen size bed with (3) pillows, slider door with an awesome view, two chairs on a small balcony. We did not try the pool, but it looked very nice, with separate shower and bathroom area, as well as small children's play area, and half size basketball court. There was plenty of parking, and "lagartijos" small lizards, (they eat insects all night and day long, they don't bite and are possibly the best fed on the island; I guess, they were pretty big, lol. Did not see any insects or evidence of in the room, a plus!!!! Especially in the caribbean!!! Did not see any of the larger "Gallinas De Palo" Green Iguanas, that are all over the place, these I believe bite if molested.
