Go for Drinks on the Beach!

We were tipped off by another couple on the beach that this place has a great bar right on the beach and boy, we are so glad we asked them to take a photo for us or we may never have known! We had amazing margaritas (ask to have them made with fresh lime juice, Patron and Grand Marnier... read more

My Wife and I had an amazing beach front dining experience last week at Uvva (the restaurant of Hosteria del Mar). The restaurant itself is beach from with candles, but they even had 5 tables actually on the beach, just feet from the ocean. There are no other hotels/restaurants on the island where you can actually have dinner on the... More

Great food in a cute place on the beach. The service was a little slow like many places in San Juan but easy to enjoy the beach view while you wait.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in all of San Juan during our recent weeklong vacation. The open air concept directly on the beach was wonderful. (There is also seating under a roof in case of rain.) The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. It wasn't a large menu, but what they offered was terrific, and every... More

We ate a selection of tapas and Scallops , sausages wine and Plantains with octopus ceviche and a... More

I stayed at Hosteria del mar 4 years ago with my girlfriends and had a wonderful week-long vaca. My boyfriend and I just visited the island again and we walked from our condo down to what I remember to be a beautiful, hidden gem. It was sad to see the beach almost all washed away from the flooding they had... More

We were a group of 6 and when we arrived the waiter cautioned us it would be a little slow as he had only 1 chef and a large group that was holding a meeting there. We ordered drinks and enjoyed the view. For food, 4 of us ordered the Clams and Shrimp Linguini, which was excellent ($21) and 2... More

I was very disappointed with Uvva. The service was awful, the food was bland, the prices were terrible. The drinks were pre-mixed... gross! The only thing we enjoyed was sitting on the beach.

First and foremost let me say that I did not stay overnight at this hotel, but was there for food and cocktails 4 times last week. The hotel website shows a lovely beachfront smaller hotel with nice décor. Not so in person. The whole place looks like it was very nice some time ago and is finally getting a re-do... More
