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

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.
