If you are looking for a clean hotel which is well located, this is a great choice! It's only a 2 minute walk away from the beach and Ashford Avenue (where all the hotels, restaurants, bars, etc are) so at night it is very quiet!
Our room had a double bed, AC, cable tv, wifi, a balcony with views of the lagoon and the bathroom was a good size too. The furnishings weren't very modern, but for us the cleanliness was more important. Our towels got changed daily, and the sheets every other day.
After my first shower that had very little pressure, I spoke to someone in reception and they solved the problem straight away by changing the shower head.
I needed to iron some clothes and could use the iron and ironing board on the ground floor where there is a washing machine and dryer too.
We stayed at the hotel for 7 days so when I called to make the booking, I asked for a discount which they did give us. We met other people who were staying there for 3-4 weeks who also get a good deal.
The breakfast was very basic: lots of cereal, bread, pastries, watermelon, apples and bananas. I was hoping for lots of different fruit so that was a bit disappointing but by the second day I was over it! ;)
There's a bus stop to take you to Old San Juan, extremely unreliable! Locals told us that buses turn up when they went to, but only costs 75 cents.
The best place we found to rent a car was at enterprise, which is on 888 Avenida Ashford, next to Starbucks. They had the best rates and it was even cheaper to book online than in person!
We had a great time in PR and I was very sad to leave!
