Our family stayed in the El Pescado unit for one week at the beginning of November 2009. The on-site managers are extremely friendly and accommodating. They went out of their way to help us out during our stay.
The Coqui del Mar is only 1/2 block away from a stunning, quiet beach. There are also several shops and restaurants within walking distance. Our unit had an open design and everything we needed, including a play pen for our child and beach toys.
Previous reviewers noted limited hot water and limited internet; these were not concerns during our stay as there was plenty of hot water and the internet worked fine. Neil, one of the managers, mentioned that he is currently upgrading the internet to improve reception. Our only concern was some late night noise on the weekends from a near by street.
All in all, this place is outstanding value. We will come again if and when we're in Puerto Rico.

- 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
