“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very pleased with our experience. The hotel is nothing fancy but definitely a nice place. We stayed in the economy room and I will say that it was VERY small but that wasn't a big deal to us because it was clean. The hotel was in a nice location with easy walking access to the beach and lots of restaurants in Condado. Also, there is a Walgreens right around the corner which was very handy when we got nasty sunburns - it was also convenient because we could grab snacks or bottles of water there for pretty cheap. The hotel staff was helpful and nice. They also have free juice/coffee bar available 24 hours/day and several areas to sit and relax. There is a free breakfast every morning which was basic but it was all we needed - they had toast, pastries, yogurt, cereal, fruit, deli meat, hard-boiled eggs, etc. One negative was that the pool area is very small so if that's important to you that might be an issue.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stayed here for three nights and our room was on the first floor. We were right next to the pool so there was some noise but most the time, it was quiet. The pool and pool area was quite small but people did use it. The hotel could invest in new pool chairs. Our room was pretty small and the bed was not very comfortable, but we did get the least expensive room, so you get what you pay for. The A/C worked well. There is no TV guide, so I will tell you right now, you can find the channel guide on 899. You can get $1 cokes or water from their mini-bar, a good deal. The soaps/lotions and tub were nice. The courtyard area was wonderful, with plants and birds tweeting all around. Breakfast was mostly pastries and cereal. We enjoyed the coffee machine. In the evening when you go out, you have to rely on the front desk to buzz you back in--and a couple of times it took a while before anyone buzzed us in. But, having said that, the staff was very nice and helpful. The third floor was a great respite after going out and we enjoyed sitting out there in the evening. What's also great about the Coral Princess is its location. Very close to an excellent beach, some great restaurants, the drug store (Walgreens), and the bus to Old San Juan. (Based on what I had read, we decided not to rent a car and found that to be a smart decision. Driving there would be very non-relaxing.) Overall, a good stay.

Very nice hotel in overall!

Good about this hotel:

•Clean room
•Great staff, helpful, friendly & professional especially Juan!
•Great location in the heart of Condado •Good area for restaurant and beaches
•Free dispenser of juices, coffee, tea
•Many small rooms to have a time break and relax
•Clean and good small swimming pool

No so good

•I had a room just next to the breakfast area and very nose in the morning. To to avoid this one
•Tv: impossible to watch, but to be honest I didn't ask help!
•Parking, only 4 places available. But better than nothing.
•Water in the shower take a wile to be warm/hot

Prices are correct for this area. But in general I was surprise from the high prices level of hotel in San Juan

This hotel was decent. Very pretty and in a great area. Easy to walk to a lot of different restaurants and places. We got upgraded when we arrived and had a nicely decorated room with a big jacuzzi tub. I was a little frustrated because there was no parking and we had to park down the street and pay $13 for overnight. The breakfast was okay, mainly yogurt and boiled eggs and a coffee/juice machine. Overall a decent stay.

We absolutely loved this hotel ! Very small and boutique style. Excellent staff (so nice and helpful) with a tropical courtyard for relaxing. This is also where they serve breakfast in the morning - Great breakfast, by the way (LOTS of choices and plenty of food). Walking distance to the beach, the shopping area, and lots of restaurants and bars. This part of Condado seems to be a very trendy area and is just a few short minutes from Old San Juan. The only thing I wished was different was that the jacuzzi was heated (they have a nice jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace, which was beautiful, but the jacuzzi was a little chilly and would have been PERFECT if it was heated) But, not a big deal, and it didn't take away from the experience. I would highly recommend this hotel ! A nice location, lots of amenities, and a convenient parking area in front of the hotel. Two thumbs up !

We stayed at the hotel from 01/23/13 to 01/26/13, It was amazing!! Its a small hotel but very nice. Very cute public area, the terraces are really cute, the Jacuzzi is amazing (after a long day its really good) and they have a swimming pool. The bathtub is really amazing its like a private Jacuzzi ! And the breakfast was really good! Lot of choices, good food. You have coffee and juices unlimited 24hours!
But the most important in this hotel is the staff!!! Really nice and helpful ! When you ask for something they do it right away and they give you good tips about San Juan or other sightseeing!
Location is amazing, 5 min of the beach, 2 min from a 24h walgreen and 2 min from the main street to go out.
Perfect for everybody!!!!!!! Couple, family or friends!
