Fine location, friendly & helpful staff!

Because one of my primary reasons for going to Puerto Rico was to practice speaking Spanish, I was seeking people with whom to chat. So often I'd say something in Spanish and be replied to in English, mainly because they wish to perfect their English! Located min. walk from the beach and also from shops, casinos & restaurants in the other direction! What lacked for me was a provision right there for emailing but if i had taken a laptop that connection was free. Food right there was good, and staff was very helpful. Safe and short distance from airport without being right in San Juan it was ideal for this inquiring Senior lady travelling alone and i intend to return there next year!

Much needed vacation getaway!!

I thought the hotel had great customer service!! Guest services was available 24/7 and also thought that the surveillance was excellent. I also had the convenience of the hotel being around a lot of restaurants and it being in a quite area as well. Also check in was done quick and efficiently.

Good enough

Hotel staff is very polite and friendly, they all are bilingual too. My room was good... it was not luxurious at all but it has enough space and comfort for a quick stay. Location is good if you want to stay near to the airport but it's a little bit far from Viejo San Juan (the main tourist attracton in the area). From the Hotel, Taxi prices are $14 to the airport and $20 to Viejo San Juan (you can divide the cost with other people and share the Taxi).
