This July my husband and I went on a business convention trip and Words cannot express how impressed and delighted we were about staying at Numero Uno Guest House. It was home away from home. We loved staying there, enjoying morning walks on the beach and having a cup of coffee with sand running through our toes. The service was... More

I'm a local and I work at the hotel industry so I wanted something smaller and cozy for our anniversary. I decided to reserved 3 days and 2 nights at this cute guest house and I'm so happy I did. Between the extremely fast check-in, the cleanliness of the room, the beautiful beach, perfect location for restaurants and the amazing... More

After staying at "chain" hotels around the island and experiencing resort fees, long waits for the elevator and a crowded pool I decided to branch out a bit and try something different. This was the best decision I could have made! The folks at Numero Uno are awesome, it's like visiting a family member's beach house...The staff is very accommodating... More

I cannot say enough about this place!!! I chose Numero Uno because it was not in the tourist area. I've stayed at 3 of the big hotels in the Condado and decided I wanted to stay away from the tourist traps. The food, the beach, the service is all top notch.I have to give a big shoud out to David.... More

I'm sitting on the beach, having a FREE continental breakfast, watching the turquoise Caribbean waters lap the shoreline. I've been coming here on business and staying at numero uno nearly 10 years. Can't over-sell this place. It's small, quaint, peaceful with a hospitable and warm staff. It's not the Ritz, but that's not what I'm looking for. If you want... More

I can not give enough praise on our favorite place to stay in San Juan. Year after year, the owners and their staff always take excellent care of us. This year we decided to get an apartment over at the adjacent property. It was a perfect little apartment with a kitchenette. Our neighbor staying in the apartment next to us... More

Labored over where to stay near San Juan after five days of birdwatching. Chose Numero Uno Guesthouse and was not disappointed. Beautiful old house literally on the beach. No crowds. No waiting for an elevator. Staff most friendly and eager to do anything to ensure your stay is perfect. (Kudos to Eva, Michael, David and others whose names I didn't... More

We recently spent one night pre-cruise at Numero Uno. It's in Ocean Park right on the beach, about midway between the airport and Old San Juan. Our room wasn't ready, but our luggage was stored in the office. We opted to have lunch on the beach at the connected restaurant. We had a beautiful table right on the beach under... More

If you are looking to get away from the large hotels in San Juan and stay in a quiet hotel next to a beautiful beach this hotel is for you. The only negative is that the check in time is rather late, 4 pm, and we were not given access to our room until around 3pm.
