I would first like to say that the hotel grounds are beautiful and nicely maintained. As soon as you walk into the hotel lobby area you feel like you are on a mini island with little ponds, incense burning, water flowing, comfortable chairs/couches every where - extremely relaxing. The rooms are also really big and airy. We stayed in Room 1212 and we had no issues with water pressure it was a great room.
However, please note that in order for you to stay at this hotel I highly recommend renting a car like we did as the hotel is far from Old San Juan and far away from other restaurants and hotels as well. There is nothing to do at night except drink and listen to a band or d.j
There is hardly anything to do during the day at the hotel except swim, workout in the mini gym and eat mediocre food. The maid service was not that great we kept having to use the same cups over and over again as she would not replace them with clean ones. The beach is pretty if you want to walk on rocks and sit in shallow water with tons of greenery. Bring your swim shoes if you can because there are tons of rocks on the sand. Also, check your bill before you checkout because they charged me twice "accidentally." While it is a beautiful hotel I would much rather stay in Isla Verda or Old San Juan.
