We enjoyed our stay at this hotel while in the Ocean Park area of Puerto Rico for 2 nights. We stayed in Room 106 which had a beautiful ocean view. Our room was clean and the bathroom was renovated with plenty of towels and toiletries, however, we never had hot water. The room had a safe and the air conditioning worked great. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, especially Maria and Eduardgo. One electrical outlet was loose and we had a shortage of plugs to charge our phones. The door to the outside deck area was hard to open due to a board being too high on the recently renovated deck which blocked the door opening and you had to lift the door handle up to get out. All these problems were reported to management before leaving.
This hotel did not serve breakfast, but had some coffee in the lobby for guests. The only WiFi access is in the lobby. This hotel is in a neighborhood setting and there are restaurants and a nice Walgreen's within walking distance. Our favorite restaurant was Molini's. President Obama's picture is on the wall at Kasalta when he last visited Puerto Rico. We found the food in Puerto Rico to be more expensive than expected. Also, the cab fare from the airport which is fairly close to Hosteria Del Mar is $19 plus $1 for each bag which we also found expensive. There is a city gate that locks every night at 6PM and you will only have one entry gate back to the hotel after 6PM. You can catch a bus for 75 cents in front of Walgreen's to Old San Juan and there is a free white tourist tram which drives you all around Old San Juan. The cruise ships come in on Saturday and Sunday and the place is packed, so if you can visit Old San Juan another day then it won't be so crowded. There were 3 cruise ships docked one day while we were there.
