Area description
There is no place quite like a tropical volcanic island, and no island in the Caribbean quite like Puerto Rico. The geography of the island is very unusual, as it encompasses distinctly different kinds of topography and microclimates in a relatively small area. A rugged mountain range runs across the center from east to west, which often prevents rain clouds from passing to the south. The north side of the island is covered by dense vegetation, limestone formations, and rushing streams, while, the south side is sun-toasted terrain, home to tropical dry forests and many species of exotic birds. Puerto Rico is only about 100 miles long and 35 miles wide, so its most distant points are only a three-hour drive apart. It also means that just about every tropical landscape in existence is a short trip from wherever you happen to be.

Birthday Trip

This Hotel is amazing, perfect location to Old San Juan, awesome food, gorgeous grounds! The only complaint I have is the cost of alcohol, but you can walk right down the side walk to buy plenty cheap, you just cant take it on and around the pool. Other than that, best vacation spot by far!

Great hotel but not by a large beach area

Hotel service and staff was great. The hotel has a great ocean view. Only thing to think about is if you are looking for a big beach area this would not be for you. The beach area is small and the rest of the ocean front you is a rock wall.

was not the greatest

last night of our trip, my boyfriend suffered an accident down by the walkway towards the pool. he broke his ankle in two places in an uneven pavement. we were dropped off at 3 am in the nearest hospital by the security guard. he left us at the hospital which was the longest wait. we decided to bandage him up and give him tons of Advil, and elevate his foot. when we got back to the hotel we only had a couple hours of sleep and then straight to the airport. between the accident and the rest of the stay, we never not once heard from any employee for assistance or if we needed any help or medicine nothing of sort. I'm still waiting for an email of sort. we still had to pay for the room and parking.

Day before cruise

My husband was upset that I booked a cruise departing from San Juan as he hated Puerto Rico last time he went there (I didn't go so I can't comment), but he loved this place. He said that's the only place we will stay in the future. Pool drinks were pricey though, but the pool area was awesome. I loved the garden area with peacocks, black swans, etc...the lemongrass restaurant was good as well.

Great for the money and location

Hotel was good - nothing spectacular but comfy enough to chill in the room if desired and close enough to the walk across the bridge all the shopping and food. Our group was looking for something bigger than boutique, nicer then budget hotel and not as pricey as a luxury hotel - this was perfect. I will probably stay here again when traveling to PR.
