Tres Palmas Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We lived there for two nights. The location is great. It faces to the sea which has a great view. However, the room doesn't have hot water for two whole day. We talked to the staff and they asked us to wait cause there is nothing they can do. We'll, you can find a better place to live for this price.

1. Hotel staff were most accommodating to every need: from obtaining beach towels, to helping us borrow beach chairs. Room cleaning staff listened to our need for an extra towel or to leave the room alone, if we desired. 2. The terrazzo level is most appealing. As well, the grounds with gardens of greenery, ocean front views, and mostly, the jacuzzi tub at roof level. Feel the relaxed atmosphere by lounging on a hammock or sitting in garden areas. 3. Nice to start the day with included breakfast, hot coffee or tea, bananas, and other foods from which to choose.

We were just transiting through San Juan, PR to our final destination of Vieques Island and had not booked anything before hand. We read about Tres Palmas at our hotel in New Orleans the day we were to fly out and took a chance and booked it. It is truly a gem. The location is spectacular, the staff was very accommodating, the rooms were lovely, and it was a pleasant respite in our journey.

Nice location,,staff was great,,very clean and secure...

Great hotel for a great price...parking is a bit of a problem because you have to park on the street but I would definitely stay there again....Great ocean view, awesome jacuzzi overlooking the Caribbean Sea and friendly and helpful stay...

Our stay was amazing. The front desk people were amazing. They were so helpful..ask were to buy bug spray and they gave us a bottle. Asked information about how to get top down town and was advised what bus and where to pick it up. The breakfast was just what we needed. Hardboiled eggs, chocolate cake, toast, bagels.. With fresh juice and milk. Our room was big and comfortable. Thank you for a prefect mini vacation

Tres Palmas Inn was the perfect hideaway for my husband and I to enjoy San Juan on our honeymoon. We appreciated the friendly and helpful staff always being there to answer all of our questions. The room was cozy and quiet. The view from the rooftop hot tub were amazing and we enjoyed them each night of our stay. When they say the beach is across the street they're not kidding! Within walking distance to Kasalta and Che's, both restaurants we enjoyed while in San Juan. The complimentary breakfast each morning was always fresh and tasty! We would highly recommend it to friends & family, and would definitely stay at Tres Palmas Inn again if we are ever back in San Juan!

Tres Palmas met all my expectations I had when I booked the stay. Quiet little inn with a picture perfect view and service. It was really relaxing without the usual hustle an bustle of the big hotels and crowds. Daily morning breakfast was good enough and hit the spot. The rooms were very clean and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Place is a walking distance to some good restaurants and about a 15 minute drive to old san juan. I definitely recommend Tres Palmas if you are looking to just relax, away from the crowded areas.

I received personalized service... Exceptional customer service from the moment I walked up to the desk. Very clean, secured environment that made me not only feel welcomed, but safe and part of property.

We stayed one night before catching a cruise ship. Arrived early enough in the day to enjoy a walk on the beach (right across the street). We were referred to a small restaurant down the street where we ate an awesome skirt steak & enjoyed freshly made sangria wine. Returned to inn for quiet, comfortable nights rest. Very cute but a little over priced.

Small local hotel nestled along the coast. Hotel has kind helpful staff who are willing to make accommodations. Two hot tubes with a great view of the ocean. The rooms are simple but comfortable. They have body boards and bikes that you can just borrow for as long as you like. The beach along the coast near the hotel is very much a local beach and is not the best kept beach. Great value!

This little hotel is right across the street from the ocean - has a cute courtyard and the rooms are reasonably comfortable. NOW COMES THE BIG BUT -- while we enjoyed our stay, it was ALWAYS a cab ride to anyplace we wanted to go! It typically was a $50 round-trip charge to get to anyplace we wanted to go: the "big mall" (which is worth going to if you have the time - great people watching!); Old San Juan....a tad disappointing....not much open during the week and even at a small establishment for a run-of-the-mill-mufungo (ick) was $45 + tip!; back and forth to the airport was also anywhere from $25-30 depending on which cab driver you got. We found a great cab driver the next-to-the last-day we were there but I can't remember his name....dang! All in all, the motel was "a bit on the rustic side" and to be fair it was recently sold and will be undergoing some updating. We had one of the little frogs right outside of our window that the island is known for - his sound is more bird-like than frog-like. We spent well over $250 on cab fares -- oh and don't forget meals...none within SAFE walking distance......more $20+ cab fares -- in just 4 days. That was tough as we 3 friends were traveling on a tight budget! We would NOT stay there again....ultimately a more expensive hotel would have been a nice bit of luxury and less expensive as FREE cab rides to/from the airport and several restaurants would have been easily available.

it is perfect for people who like the quiet, calm places as we do ( my wife and I) so it is the Right hotel to stay.parking it is outside of the hotel but to me it was easy to find out an space and park .

Super chill place to stay by the beach in San Juan. $2 Medalla beers, friendly staff, hot tub & pool.

This is a great small place to stay directly across the street from a useable beach. (not necessarily "one of the best") Bicycles, beach towels, beach chairs, hot tub, internet and a small pool are all included. There is a small store about 10-15 minutes away (walking) but ask for directions. Other than that, not much near by. Clarifications: I found the beds to be more like a queen than a full. Our room had two beds squeezed in, which was really one too many. The "free parking" is on the street and is not always convenient to the hotel. There was one electric plug in the room. Fortunately I had brought along an extension cord with multiple outlets. I suggest you do so as well. The TV is mostly Spanish. The included "Continental Breakfast" was better than most. Boiled eggs and ham were included along with the usual, Breads, cheese, juices etc. I liked this 1950s era hotel; but not everyone will want to put up with it's minor inconveniences.

small charming inn small pool area very nice views nice continental breakfst clean place hard to find parking

Check in was simple, the room was adequate. There's a gate that makes it difficult to get onto the property with arm-fulls of stuff. The room decor wasn't great, almost institutional. The room has tile floors which seem to always have sand on them, from the moment you arrive. They have beach cruisers you can borrow, bogie boards, hammocks, and one of the only continental breakfasts in the San Juan area. The pool is quaint. The views are awesome.

Our 2 night stay at this wonderful old-style guest house was great. Staff was friendly, the pool secluded and view from the rooftop hot-tub area excellent. Our room was across from the ice machine which was more than a bit noisy but we got used to it after the first night. We walked to the restaurant area about 5 blocks east of the hotel and had a wonderful dinner. You will need a car to get anywhere else as this hotel is off the beaten path a bit.

We were greeted by a young woman in a very unfriendly manner. She behaved as though it was an inconvenience that we'd arrived. My window would not shut all the way and when I brought over the issue she seemed really annoyed. I wanted to leave the first day I arrived because of this but gave the hotel a second chance because the owner was really nice. We were put right next to the pool and couldn't get any sleep due to the excess noise early in the morning and the loud voices late at night. In spite of this issue, I managed to have a good time by getting out of the hotel. I really was going to put it all behind me and then I get home and discover I was charged for the hotel stay after I had already paid for it in my vacation package charge. I am still waiting for my refund. Unfortunate, really. The hotel has potential. The staff really need to work better and making their guests feel welcome and not seem annoyed when they are asked for something.

Hello Snow, I apologize. We did run into some trouble when a tube needed repair and then the greater city of San Juan had a larger repair all in the same week. It is not a normal occurrence for us to be without hot water. Take Care.

one of the nicest places we've ever stayed.
