For a truly unique Caribbean inn across Guanica's Guilligan's Island - Mary Lee's by the Sea is your home away from home. Personal decorative touches with twinkling lights and beach decor adorn her rooms including Mary Lee's home as well as her other houses in the neighborhood. Their friendly staff kindly gave us a tour of the Inn. All are... More

We stayed in Contenta, a spacious apartment with a covered porch, outside dining area, full kitchen, large living room and one bedroom all right on the water. The views are amazing and there always seems to be a breeze that keeps the bugs at bay. The bedroom was tiny and air conditioned but the bed was comfortable. We are bird... More

Mary Lee's consists of several apartments right by the sea (a mangrove area, but swimming there was fine) with terrific views. These were all booked up, so we stayed in Presciosa up the hill a ways. There's no view, but the bungalow is very nice: lots of room, well equipped kitchen, great bathroom with trees and Christmas lights!, comfortable bed,... More

I have just stayed once again at Mary Lee's by the Sea. I've been coming here for years and have stayed in nearly all of the 10 lovely apartments, large and small. I've been here for a month, because there is no place better to unwind and relax. For 3 weeks I stayed with my husband in the apartment called... More

We loved our time at Mary Lee's by the Sea! We were able to stay in Pacifica, which is a large apartment that sleeps at least six people, even though we were just two people. We LOVED it! It had an internal courtyard with a large gas grill, a large living and dining area, great kitchen, and huge patio with... More

It's difficult to write a disparaging review when you like the people... Pros- peaceful, BBQ pit available, fantastic little kitchenettes, spacious rooms, friendly staff and dog. :) Cons- Bedbugs in the Ruthie room, with two twin beds not a real King, overpriced, no wifi and no phone signal. This can be VERY lovely though unless you have a sick family... More

If you are looking for a peacefull getaway this is the place. Relax in front of the ocean with the Guilligan island view. We stood at the Pacifica and it was good for two families with bbq, a big kitchen and patio area, you wont regret.

We just got back from a 12 day vacation traveling all over Puerto Rico and I would have to say our 2 days at Mary Lee's were the low light of our time on this beautiful island. The whole time we were staying at Mary Lee's, I just kept saying I didn't understand how other people or Fodor's can be... More

I am so sorry to hear you were not happy at our property. I appreciate that our location and decor are not for everyone, and I do wish that if you were that unhappy with the unit, that you had talked to us, and we would have refunded the deposit and assisted you with finding another place to stay in...
