Great location, to visit the Arecibo town, near Hatillo Mall, Arecibo Radar, Camuy Cave, Beach, Arecibo Lighthouse. Clean Room. Pool Area small but clean. Try Buen Cafe Rest very good local menu. Off highway #22.

The address on the internet and the map were not quite correct. It is on the national highway in Hatillo going out Carr 2 Km Num 381 Carrizales. Tel 00659 3465. The price we paid on Hôtels.com $106.68 was more than the price of the room when we got there - $79.45 for 4. We were reimbursed the difference without... More

Stayed at this place in between travels on my trip across Puerto Rico. It was not my choice, but it ended out "ok". Meals were offered at a restaurant across the street which were fairly priced. I had dinner and breakfast there and it was satisfactory. I missed having a morning coffee and didn't care to walk across the street... More

This hotel was definitely one of the worst ones I have stayed at.... Not only is the area really sad and ugly and you only want to sleep there as you pass through to another nicer area, but the hotel itself is also not worth its money at all and hotel staff is NOT helpful at all... While the room... More

I write this from the point of view of a mid-level budget traveler (I do Quality Inn but not Motel 6). So I rank this in relation to other budget hotels, not in relation to anything of higher quality (or else it would just be a "2" in comparison to a Sheraton!) Is this place a "parador" (Hostel) or a... More

A nice mom and pop kind of place. Friendly staff, nice basic room, and a cafe across the street. The cafe's home made pancakes are excellent. No complaints other than no coffee in the room or lobby. Just a nice, simple room at a good price.

Lucky we were only staying one night in this place, the room had a discreet smell of urine in it and the room was slightly dirty although air con machine very good. The cafe attached to this hotel although doesn't look like much, the food is good and very friendly and lovely staff. The location is good in terms of... More

This hotel was fine. Check-in was great - communication was good and they even gave us some free drink vouchers for PR rum & beer to use at their café (we didn't use). The rooms are pretty basic/Spartan. We needed more towels so I phoned the front desk and the towels arrived within minutes. Pretty excellent service. The kids wanted... More

We booked one night here to see the Camuy caves, and this was close by. The room was on a very noisy street, and you could hear the thumping music from the downstairs cafe. The lamps were broken in our room. The rooms were very outdated. Would not recommend this place if you're looking for a good night's sleep. The... More
