We booked last minute, as our travel plans had changed due to weather- Noyda helped us understand travel times and options to and from the two San Juan airports, even before decided to book at Coqui. We were so glad we did! The room was clean and bed very comfortable, and the jacuzzi soothed our travel-worn muscles. She even upgraded us to El Cangrejo, which made us feel even more welcome. We'd planned on staying at Tres Palmas Inn, which we did on our return trip through San Juan, and preferred Coqui del Mar. The jacuzzi at Coqui is ample but feels intimate,and is not overly chlorinated (that's a good thing in my book:) Tres Palmes is right on the beach, but Coqui is one block off the beach and we could hear the coqui frogs better. I can't speak for the other rooms, but between #5 at Tres Palmes and El Cangrejo, Coqui definitely was preferable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a smaller guest house nestled in a neighborhood setting of the Ocean Park beach area of San Juan, in between Old San Juan and the international airport. We are 3 minutes walk to the nearest beach. You will have a chance to see how the locals live and you will not be one of 1000 other tourists...the Ocean Park beach is one of the locals's favoites, and also a preferred spot for kite surfing and windsurfers. We are 5 minutes walk to the tourist bus route (which goes to the casinos and to Old San Juan) and walkable to restaurants and grocery stores. Each of our units have full kitchen, free WiFi, cable TV/DVD, Apple TV, in room safes, and an Ipod player. Some units have extras such as Apple Computers. We strive to provide more than expected, and I think you will find that with us, from the beach chairs, or bicycles to the in room safes, there are no extra charges. One of the best things about us is our live in management, Noyda and Neal, who call Coqui del Mar home and welcome you as if it is your home as well. They are local experts and can help you find a great restaurant, plan a special event, or enjoy a chat. Our courtyard, bar-b-que and jacuzzi are great for meeting other guests. If you are looking for personal service and a unique, eco-friendly (we have solar hot water supplemented by electric, ceiling fans supplemented by ACs, and offer recycling), and a clean guest house for a reasonable price, then check us out. We are not a Marriott and offer our own unique sense of quirky and intimate Puerto Rico. Come join us. ... more less
