We arrived late afternoon, knowing where the apartments were, as we have been to P.R. many times, but never having used them. The only request we had made was for a room on a high floor, and were obviously disappointed to get room 104 on the first floor. My complaints to the receptionist were deflected by the comment that there... More

Just got back from a weeks stay in the Babalu. I go to Puerto Rico every year so knew what to expect. You get what you pay for. We arrived quite late and was greeted by an unfriendly man on reception who didn't seem like he really wanted to help us! Not a good first impression! Rooms are very basic... More

While the rooms could use a bit of TLC (cracked tiles and chipped paint) they were clean and comfy. The pool bar was great for a quick breakfast and a cuppa coffee and the location was perfect for our trip as we had business in the top center. Every thing you need is right across the street and it's a... More

All apartments have pool and sea view and 2 mins across the road is the Europa centre. Loads of shops and restaurants. There is a take away shop on the 2nd floor which was good for self catering. Pool bar is good. We will book and be back next year. The weather was excellent. Rooms were large as was the... More

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Babalu Apartments, struggle to find any significant fault. Yeh, OK, some of the apartments could do with a refresh, but it was obvious we had new mattresses, a new fridge and a new boiler. The location is perfect with great views, good sized pool and plenty sunbeds. The bar does great... More

This hotel is very beautiful looking over the sea. High up from the main strip, costing less than 4euros in a taxi. Do not book with reception as they charge, just stand outside as they're regular. Rooms and corridors could do with an update as very basic, but will do. We was on the ground floor so very convenient to... More

My partner and I visitted the Babalu Appartments during April 2012 for a week. We decided to take my niece along as well; considering the rates were cheap and she had never been on holiday before. We all had a lovely time. The only negatives really were that the appartment was rather basic and the shower was rather temperamental. The... More
