PROs: The parking is just outside the rooms complex, which is built around the parking. The hote and parking is safe, having somebody 24 hours for security. The rooms are just about okay, small, but come with airconditioning. The staff is helpful. It was possible to cancel one reserved night without payment, which was really nice. CONs: For the price...

I stayed for 2 nights, downstairs room. Location is good - quiet and an easy walk to the beach and downtown. My room was clean, but not comfortable, and in need of updating. The staff were friendly, most of the time! Overall value for money was average.

We payed a little more for this hotel than other accommodations in SJDS. Just under $30 each for the two of us per night ($56 US total). However, we were happy to pay so much if it meant having hot water, AC, and privacy. Because of the AC, there were no bugs (save for one spider). The room was very... More

This by far looked like the nicest place to stay in the city. The place was clean, had hot water, free breakfast, and a friendly staff. Whatever is behind the hotel was extremely noisy and it was hard to sleep.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in middle January. The hotel was great value and we were happy we stayed there. $35/night private room with bathroom. Located in the Center of town (off the beach, but safe), it was conveniently located for food and other supplies. Not much atmosphere as most other guests were couples and Middle... More

This place worked out perfectly for us. Booked the day of and the price was right for a one night stay. Our room was simple but the outdoor area is decorated nicely. The free breakfast is adequate. They allowed us a late check out so we could enjoy the day at the beach and then shower before catching the ferry... More

I am here for the second time and I think this hotel is a great catch for the price. Positive aspects: The hotel was close to the beach, stores and restaurants.This time we had a room on the top floor, which gave a great view. Although we didn't have a clear ocean view from the balcony, we saw a bit... More

Since 2007 we come here every year, in different seasons, and this is definitely our favourite hotel in San Juan. The location is authentic, tranquil and very safe indeed. The staff is very nice, trustful and helpful, and the owners are fantastic people. Rooms are spacious and clean and with a terrace, in a green, tropical setting. Very good price/quality,... More
