Very Decieving!! False Amenties

They did not have any amenities that were stated. Never brought towels, cleaned room or changed sheets. When requested after 2nights they ignored our request. Nothing to do but pool and beach. No water activities for the beach. Charged 17.77 a day to park. Not a resort and charged resort fees. Horrible hotel!! Did not offer nothing to their guests! Did not explain anything at check in. Really a motel on the beach that they didn't even have enough access cards to give to their guests. They had security let you in the beach but no way to get back out but wait for another guest from the other hotel to come in. Pool bar does not stay open past 5pm 11-5pm for the pool bar. Shared grounds with another hotel. Which they told us we couldn't even come there to purchase food or drinks. They advertised the other hotels amenties. No casino as advertised either! Horrible so called resort stay!

Nice location

No free breakfast. If you dine in embassy suites, it costs $17.00 for a breakfast that the embassy suites' guests receive for free. The two share a pool and beach access, yet not food, an no breakfast is even offered in Aquarius. I also had to pay $47 just to park my rental car in the parking lot for 4 days. And you have to wait in line for towels. The location is top notch, it's quiet, laid back, on the beach, and beautiful. The rooms smell a little sour because the humidity is high, but they don't use dehumidifiers to keep the air regulated. The staff was very nice. I think with a few minor adjustments, such as, breakfast, free parking, and some dehumidifiers, this place could be top notch.

Great stay!

Would stay here again. Only bad thing was the smell of the rug. Other than that, AMAZING. Definitely need an update on rugs.

Nice Beach

Convenient get away close to airport and beach. Traffic was a bit of a hassle. Used this stay in PR to help facilitate air travel and was pleasantly surprised.

Great location and exteriors.

I stayed at the hotel from july 22 to the 24. The room was big and comfortable. Exteriors are great. The only problem with the room is the air conditioning system. It was hot, worst during the night. We followed the instructions about keeping the doors closed but it didnt work either. If you get a room with a good air conditioner you will have a great time.

MY Stay

Except for one night of young people running through the hall till 4:00 am, my stay was great. Very clean, except the rugs in the rooms should be replaced. Otherwise, it's an excellent weekend getaway.

Great value, but not the top location

The hotel is a very good value if you are willing to travel a bit to beaches. The rooms include high speen internet, full kitchen and even a washer and a dryer! This can really help you save money — there is a 24-hour supermarket at 5-minute driving distance. There is a great pool area which is lively and can be enjoyed by a family. There is an access to the public beach, but it's really not that great: it's shallow and filled with seaweed, so no swimming or playing in the waves there. Also, we've got our bag stolen on the beach — so don't take any valuables there. We rented a car and drove to some pretty distant beaches. The north shore of the island (where the hotel is located) is not that great for swimming because of high waves. But if you are ok to drive, there are good ones (we particularly liked the Aguadilla Crash Boat Beach — but it's 2 hours drive away!).
