This hotel has basic commodities but it's completely worth it. The room was very clean and spacious and it also had an amazing view. It included a fridge and microwave in the room, which was very convenient, and free WiFi. If you need a restaurant, a store, a bar or any other big hotel necessities, you can always walk a... More

I can't believe the mixture of reviews for this place. I traveled with friends and family, two of us in our mid 20s, two of us in our late 20s plus a mother and a grandmother. This place is the perfect place for a relaxing or family vacation. If your looking for a very touristy or partying spot this isn't... More

We flew into San Juan and were to stay at this hotel for 3days/2nights. First of all, finding this place was a hassle. If you put in Golden Sands Villas, GPS/Maps take you to some residential complex about 20min from the hotel. Search either through the street address or Embassy Suites to reach the hotel. The place we stayed in... More

The hotel is not a resort type hotel, the hotel located in adjacency to Embassy suites so all the facilities - gym, pool, restaurants, travel agent, beach all shared. We (young couple)stayed in this hotel just because of the price, we came to Puerto Rico to travel and hike, so we just slept there and it was just fine. Although... More

We were told by the staff of the neighboring hotel we could eat in outside bar and grill. This place is so... More

It took us over 3 hours in our rental to find this hotel, once we arrived we discovered it to be very nice but directions given to us were AWFUL! It is attached to the Embassy Suites and this is all they needed to tell us when giving directions. It has a nice beach and the pool area is nice... More

Although we arrived righ at 3:00pm, check in process was smooth and fast. The front desk personnel was kind and well informed. The hotel met all of our requests for a high floor with ocean view. The room was clean and everything worked. There is some missing furniture in the living room and most of the in-room amenities are dated.... More
