I had been staying in the San Juan Beach Club but had to check out on the morning when I had a flight in the early hours of the following morning. Coral By the Sea was cheap enough for me to book purely to use as a place to shower after the beach and leave my cases while I did... More

This is a small hotel without pool or any luxury typical of 5 star resort. But if you only want a room to sleep and take a bath after a day in the beach or a trip in the island at modest price, this is the place for you . The price is low for the area $73 night. I... More

I checked in the hotel for 3 nights but ended up checking out early due to terrible condition (light bulb not working, it was reported but no one really came to replace it and noise). They said the refund would be deposited back into my bank account for the night I didn't stay. They staff issued a refund receipt upon... More

As most reviews have already stated, this isnt a 5 star resort, this isnt the best situation for High Maintenance Families....that would be the Ritz Carlton right next door. I was here on Father's day weekend and I was happy with my stay. 5 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the Beach, 5 minutes from the Casino, 5 minutes... More

I really wish I could recommend this hotel. If you are traveling alone or with a friend I can see staying here in a pinch. However, there are so many more hotels in this area at the same price point which offer so much more for the money. The hotel is quaint in its own way. However, the rooms really... More

The hotel has a great location, near to the beach, stores, restaurants and nightlife. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. Not the comfiest bed or pillows though including sheets. If you're looking to get a good rest, this is not the bed for it. Bathroom was very small, very. This is a good hotel if you're just... More

Awesome price area was good very close to the airport. The hotel and room 409 was not moldy or smelly. The hotel is doing upgrades, the bathroom was gorgeous. Would definitely stay and recommend. Sadly no pool but there were 2 restaurants attached which I didn't get a chance to visit

I thought it was going to be a low quality stay for the price I payed, but it was definitely all the contrary, hot water ran great, parking spot available, great location...prices of the room service were expensive.
