I spent 13 days in this hotel. Ample time to get a lay of the land. The pro's: it has many pools and a nice, quaint clean strip of beach. Cons: you are locked into the property and its surroundings if you do not have a car. I would NOT recommend exploring on foot. The surrounding streets and businesses look unsafe. went to the corner walgreens and had to deal with several aggressive pan handlers. There are only two real eateries unless you want to survive on fast food. There is a subway across the street and wendy's one block up. While there are other creole eateries the food was inedible and I have eaten Puerto Rican cuisine all of my life.
The one hotel restaurant called VOGA charged us over 50.00 dollars foe a buffet breakfast for two. The food was cold, poor quality, tasteless and the choices extremely limited.
La Perla was beautiful to look at. It is a conch in shape inside and out. The service was 5 star but so were the prices. Ate there twice since I could not stomach the meals from Voga. The later served me a piece of sapper I grew muscles trying to cut. Can you imagine that????. I never knew fish could take on the consistency of dry leather and just as tough.
The rooms. Wow NOT GOOD. The inside was austere with furniture that was plastic and looked futuristic. They like to call it modernism. Yea!!!!!!!!!. The room was very clean though but the bed and pillows were hard. The air conditioning functioned excellent. Thank God as it got as hot as 96 but felt 105.
This hotel asked far to high a price and does not deliver. Best to shop around . By the way my city view faced a lot of cars and chipped buildings in real need of a paint job. I could see my neighbors in opposite buildings from the kitchen nook where I learned their morning and night patterns (Yuck) not a pretty sight but there was no where else to gaze if I wanted to use a table to eat at. I was VERY Disappointed felt robbed financially. The online description and pictures are very deceptive.
