I stayed at the hotel during April 1- 4th, during Holy week. I already new that place would be packed so this was ok. Rooms are clean, and with decent furniture. There is daily room cleaning, so this helped a lot because since we are right on the beach the floor ends up with sand. The price is great, and... More

Had a leisurely dinner with drinks and wine on Feb 23 2015 - our friend "Jay" has a home in Camuy and took us there on our first night in PR - maybe because he knows the owner and family we got exceptional service, but the food was great too and we would definitely recommend the bar and dining -...

We spent two nights and liked it. The hotel seems to have a newer area. We were located at what seemed to be the original area. I have no idea how the newer rooms are. Our room was very simple but cute and clean. Please be aware that the "balcony" is a common area shared with all guests. The ocean... More

I had stayed in a couple of hotels and apartments in Isabela, but is not my favorite one. The location and the view is perfect but I considered a little bit expensive for the room. Rooms need improvement for sure, mine had leakings, bed was not confortable, decoration is non existent, in overall it is expensive for the type of... More

Believe me, my dad spoiled me with really fresh fish when I was young so I know my stuff and this is the stuff. The ceviche was mouth blowing (see what I did there) and the homemade fish cakes were the best I have ever eaten. My dad ordered the mofongo with seafood and it was to die for! (I'm... More

This hotel is very simple, nothing fancy. But, the cleanliness, room view, and helpful staff makes it a great option for a weekend. My family and I stayed at room 14 (ocean front, balcony, queen bed, little bathroom, TV and A/C). Also, the hotel is well located (restaurants, Jobos Beach, Shacks Beach, etc). It was our first time here and... More

We didn't stay at this hotel, but we stopped by one of the nights that we were in Isabella. The bartender Carlos was AWESOME. He gave us cool tips for the town, introduced us to the local drink "coquito" (a coconut rum drink that is absolutely mind blowing) and made excellent piña coladas! I would highly recommend visiting for a... More

We are very regretful that your experience at Ocean Front Hotel & Restaurant was less than pleasant. At Ocean Front, we are currently going through some changes, including modifications to improve service in all areas, and perhaps this has unwittingly resulted in some snags. We promise this is currently no longer the situation and we’d like to prove it to... More

Loved this place. Really good value. Got a room with own private balcony hanging over the beach. A great place to sip a few beers and watch the sun go down. Didnt get to eat in the restaurant, but the bar was fantastic > open air overhanging the beach and sea. Short trip into, well 'town' (the beach) but so... More
