Rooms were not fancy but very clean. Linen was changed every 3 days. There is a bookshelf and cute little lobby. Very personal. Full kitchen which is also a money saver. Cheapest hotel with balcony facing the beach and a one minute walk around the hotels to actually get there. Very good location. CVS and other stores right there. One... More

First of all, the staff is wonderful! So helpful and friendly. My mom and I were a little shocked at first by the room (#2). It was very tiny and our toilet and shower were across the "lobby" in two separate tiny rooms. Luckily, we were so busy sightseeing that we weren't in the room except to sleep, which it... More

We stayed here both before and after a cruise, as we did a year ago, and loved it. Right on Condado Beach with ocean view rooms at $90-$105/night, it’s an amazing bargain. This is a family-run small hotel, so if you are looking for all the fancy amenities, go elsewhere; but it is clean and simple without the high prices... More

It was the only hotel under 200$/night we could find, but I am sorry to say it was not worth the 150$ we paid.( no breakfast included) We had a room with views over a parking lot on one side and a crumbling ruin on the other side. it is amazingly noisy : no double gazing and flimsy doors cannot...

Spent 1 night here before a cruise. Location on the beach was great. Staff was very nice. Very small place, older place. Rooms are small, and place not lap of luxury. But a good price for the Condado area. For 1 night, it served its purpose.

Small hotel, only 9 rooms, quiet if you don't like the big hotels. Located right on the beach, unlike most San Juan Hotels. Could use some simple upgrades like painting, new furniture, new toaster. If staying overnight as we did for cruise, this is a great spot. Close to the Pier, ($20 taxi), close to the airport ($20 taxi). Wendy's... More

The price was very low, considering the location right on the beach. It is a bit run-down, our room was small, but air-conditioned. There is a cute terrace overlooking the beach- thats the best point it has to offer. If you are OK with barely basic- and a great ocean beach view- you will be fine. The staff were helpful,... More

Location is great with a nice view and the ocean sounds make for a restful sleep. There is a place to store and make food. The lady at the counter was super helpful. It was during the festival so we took the bus downtown and she made sure we knew how much, where to meet it and that they only... More

When it comes to choose an accommodation in a big town, my top priority is location. Second, price, third cleanliness. All the rest can be - reasonably - compromised. So, what you get at Aleli comes as a pleasant bonus. Location is only second to the out-of-reach pricey Old San Juan, with the advantage versus the latter that you don't... More
