Then we asked for our food which arrive one hour later. When we bit into our food I literary spit my food out. Both our plates tasted like trash,we... More

Right at this moment we are staying in Hosteria del Mar. And not happy. This is a classical case of "whatever can go wrong will go wrong". No air conditioning, no cleaning of the room, no breakfast, toilet disfunctioning, no toiletpaper, no towels, the receptionist is looking the other way.... When in San Juan: chose another place to stay!

After making a reservation and paying for it on-line of a room with two beds, upon arrival at the hotel we were told that all they had was a one bed room with a side sofa. We explained that we had booked a room with two beds, showed the reservation confirmation and all the pertinent information but their answer was... More

I stayed up all night one night just looking... More

Whenever I settle on a hotel, I am always looking at reviews and hoping to gather positive information. Hosteria Del Mar had mixed reviews, and I was unsure. First let me tell you most of what I read was true both positive and negative. In a recent review, the reviewer mentioned that the beach had washed away. This was upsetting... More

Have always loved this place. First of all have to say Grace at Uvva is amazing and the entire staff is very friendly and helpful. Located in the fabulous gay friendly Ocean Park area. Rooms are basic but clean, nothing fancy here. The food at Uvva is delicious although a little pricey. Now for the downsides: we were given an... More

Let me summarize by saying that our stay was delightful, obviously by the beauty of this place's location at Ocean Park beach, but truly mostly thanks to key staff which I will call out specifically, because they made a huge difference in the quality of our stay: Ms. Iraida Rivera (Operations Manager), Jose Luis (Uvva Restaurant Chef), Dimas, Yari, Willy,...

Our complaints may sound trivial, but it was important to us. No free coffee in the morning. No coffee pot, even though we rented an apartment. $4 a cup, no refills in the restaurant. Provisions in the apartment were bare minimum for 2 people, although we were three. The staff, on the other hand, was wonderful. They did everything in... More

I Like it is just so close to the beach. The staff open up breakfast in the morning looking at an beach with a cool enhancing flamboyant feeling without the extravagance of a broken budget. It has the resort taste with Mother Nature in mind. Would highly recommended for those looking for a good clean place with affordability.
