Best looking beach front hotel in San Juan. With a surf lesson camp just right in front of the hotel. The rooms were nice although the water head sprinklers werent really working and it felt like we were taking a shower under a faucet. Food was not good but had very polite and friendly service crew.

Although I was very upset at check in, eventually the room problem was resolved though it did take nearly 2 hours to offer me two garden rooms at very little extra cost. The staff were EXCELLENT and ensured that we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely go to Kahuna again but the management still needs to resolve a few problems... More

I am having a very bad experience here. Booked room at 6,000 peso a night for 3 people and they expect my son to sleep on a mattress on the floor. Room is even too small for that. Trying to get my money back but without much success. My advice . GO ELSEWHERE !!!!

Stayed here for three nights (2 nights + 1 night extension). The location is perfect for those who wish to learn how to surf. Once you go down to the beach area, you will see La Union Surf school which offers lessons. It is near angel and Marie's restaurant and the Greek restaurant Gefseis. The rooms are not that small,...

I was impressed with staff friendliness. The rooms were quite small and overpriced. Water pressure is very low in showers. The food is expensive and many cable channels on tv are fuzzy. The bar entertainment was ok but drinks were expensive. No waves when we were here so not much to do. No nightlife what so ever.,

Stayed at the suite and got the excellent view of the beach and the people surfing. Outdoor and beach amenities were available and the pool was well maintained. It was also near to foodies so walking was convenient.

Checked in this place about 3weeks ago. The rates were 6k per night. A bit high considering their service and cleanliness was below standards. The room was disgusting. Sheets smelled and look like they were not changed from previous guests. Bathroom smelled like very bad B.O. all rooms must be like this because the two other rooms my friends checked... More

The place is very calm and relaxing. The Balinese theme adds up to the very zen-like feel of the resort. The rooms were like villas with a very accommodating warmth that gets you in the spirit of a vacation. The food was superb although they could step up a notch on the presentation. The staff were friendly and keeps their... More
