This is a small hotel near the airport and basically on Isle Verde Beach. The hotel is on the water but does not have a beach but the beach is just across the entrance to the hotel. The staff are very helpful and the rooms are very clean. Breakfast is basic, mostly bagels, cereal coffee, and juice. Only a few... More

We checked-in at midnight after the long flight from Australia. Looked sleazy from the outside and not much better within. We picked La Playa because of its location on the beach and close by the airport. That is all that it's got. The noisy music was our first concern but the manager guaranteed us that the rooms were soundproof.....that should... More

We didn't know where to stay in Puerto Rico as we have never been here before. My brother was traveling on business with his family and they were staying at the Ritz Carlton right down the street. We were happy to find a reasonable hotel so close to the Ritz but we were a little worried that it might not... More

La Playa Hotel..'La Playita'...is definately one of those spots! The staff especially Linda and Norberto along with the owners were my heros the other day. I was in town (SJ city) for... More

Cute little hotel , practically on the beach !!! We had an oceanfront suite and woke up to gorgeous views every morning . The bedroom was very nice and clean and well maintained . La Playa has a good bar and restaurant right below the rooms and from the looks of it is very popular among the locals. Every evening... More

We got stranded on Vieques Island due to Irene and our whole trip went bust. We managed to get to San Juan and had no ideas of hotels or places to stay. Our airline pilot suggested this place to us and we really loved it. The place was super clean, comfortable and right on the beach. The bartender was super... More

We go to Puerto Rico often and this time decided a week was not enough, so we extended our trip but had to move out of our condo. We found this hotel while walking on the beach. A small hotel with great rates, great rooms, great views, clean and up to date. An excellent full bar and restaurant below, right... More

My husband and I stayed here in March and had one of the oceanfront rooms. The view is great unless you are standing right at the windows because then you see the roof that is over the bar/restaurant and the run down building next door. However, on the plus side, you can open the windows and hear the surf and... More

Stayed at the Hotel la Playa for two nights in late March and would have loved to have stayed longer. We came in a little late at night but Julio was hanging out on the patio just off the street and knew right away who we were. He was very accommodating and had us checked in and in our room... More
