This was a nice, clean place to stay, but it was nothing fancy. I would stay there again because the room was clean, the area seemed safe, and the people at the hotel and cafe across the street were nice. We stayed there on a Wednesday night, and there was a party in the basement. Our room was on the... More

If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is not it. But if you are looking for a hotel that is a great deal and really friendly staff, this is your place. The hotel is located close to downtown Arecibo. My room was extremely clean and surprisingly spacious. It had a couch, desk and bed. The hotel is small... More

First time staying at a Parador in Puerto Rico and it was a great experience. Very accesible location, nice facilities well kept, very friendly staff, room was very clean, good size room and very clean bathroom! A/C, Cable tv and other amenities. Great deal if you do not want to pay lots of money and you want a nice place... More

I am currently laying on the bed in my room. It is 11:41 pm. The music from the party directly below my room is about at 80 decibels in my room. I was originally told that the music would end at 10 pm... then I was told 11... and now I am being told 12 midnight. So much for a... More

This hotel wasn't my favorite but it was quite cheap. My husband and I just stayed there one night and I don't think a 2nd night would've been too exciting. Our room was clean and well furnished. But our windows looked out onto the parking lot. The ladies at the front desk were very very helpful with all our questions.... More

Parador El Buen Café is in a convenient but definitely non-scenic location. It is directly on busy Route 2 across from Sam’s Club, and is adjacent to a neighborhood of small houses. There is a building across a small side street from the parador which houses the El Buen Cafe restaurant and a cafeteria. We found the staff at this... More

We found this place by chance in '03 and went back in '07. The rooms are immaculately clean. The staff is courteous and helpful. The Cafe across the street is a real taste of PR and the restaurant is an upscale version. The pool looks nice, tho I haven't had time to go into it. Will gladly stay there again... More
