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

He was easy to get a hold of and was helpful. Ismael took us privately to la parguera even though it had just rained for an hour and it wasn't the best time for it. He hunted down the dinoflagellates for us! Very knowledgeable and good price, but better to split among six people to lower the cost.

I had stayed at this property in 2012, for my pre and post cruise, and vowed to stay again the next time that I took a cruise out of San Juan. I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel had done a lot of work and made everything more better looking. This hotel's location is next to the beach and restaurants... More

The location of this property was excellent, right on the beach and in the middle of the strip of hotels, shops, and restaurants on Ashford. It felt more like a hostel to me than a guest house. We were not expecting a 5 star but our room was tiny and not very clean. The bed was hard, tv tiny, bathroom... More

I always select by location, rather than room amenities. Aleli by the Sea in Condado, Puerto Rico is undbeatable for location -- unless you have the money for the Marriott, La Concha, or the Vanderbuilt. Once an ocean front home, it has been a guest house for some time. There is a living rooom, a kitchen, wifi, and a beautiful... More

I was there last weekend and the location was perfect. Room was ok for the price considering that the hotel is in front of the beach and not far from Ventana al Mar. Pillows were too flat and a/c was chilling.

Quick service. Homie feeling. Great view! Its not a five or four star hotel but if you want to spend the day at the beach (30 seconds walk literally) and the night at a club or at a restaurant, this is the best you can get for the money. It has free parking (difficult to get in this area).

Great beach front location, rooms are dated, but clean, small bedroom, fairly sized washroom. Tv was tiny, like 5x5 inches tiny, wifi was good enough to stream netflix though, so it was fine, huge terrace with sun loungers, literally on the beach although the hotel does not offer beach service. great price for the centre of the city tucked away...

Very, very helpful and pleasant staff. The location & price make it a sweet deal. Easy 5 minute drive/20 minute bus ride to Old San Juan. Secure parking for three cars a great bonus, of which we were able to take advantage.

This hotel is right on Condado Beach, and a great bargain at $95/night ($113 with tax and Service Charge). The Booking site said the room would be charged to my credit card immediately upon reservation, but nothing was actually charged until we checked in at the hotel. We had a wonderful ocean view room (#8) on the second floor –... More
