When you travel you got to set a standard for the area. This hotel fit my expectations and family had fun. Pros: Pool / beach area is fun for kids. Staff is kind and responsive. Resort allows to bring your groceries and depending the room you can cook. Cons: First time is a difficult to arrive. Resort needs some renovations.

I was very concerned when I read the below reviews after being assigned this hotel on Hotwire, but I can put your concerns aside. My room was huge, great kitchen, and comfortable. It is a solid 3 star place. The sheets were clean, the view was great, the bathroom and furniture really need to be worked on. I am as... More

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 arrived at 11am off cruise ship. We were told that early check in available, it wasn't. We were told we could use pool, which was beautiful and could eat lunch in the hotel next door- restaurant Closed. We were told by the staff of the neighboring hotel we could eat in outside bar and grill. This place is so... More
