“Great hotel - would stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We really liked this hotel. It fit the bill of being exceptionally clean and comfortable. The room was very nice, and we had a great balcony overlooking a jungle-like view and the pool. We were not expecting a lot, but this place totally exceeded our expectations. We were quite happy with the room and the amenities. We arrived fairly late after a long drive. It was dark, and our GPS died on the way there. Luckily, we were able to find the hotel with no major problems (other than dark, narrow roads with crazy drivers). The only negatives (and these were not major issues at all) were that 1) there is no elevator, so when you pack too much as I do, you have to lug it up the stairs (and we were on 3rd floor), and 2) the location - while beautiful and peaceful - is not oceanfront (however, we weren't there early enough to go to the beach so that was also not a problem). and 3) there was no one to greet us - our key was on a bulletin board (but easy enough to find). We had dinner at the Rum Bar - my mahi mahi tacos were excellent, and my husband enjoyed his mish mash of Puerto Rican specialties (not many PR specialties on the menu, however). All in all, we enjoyed Lazy Parrot, and we would absolutely recommend staying here. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony overlooking the pool.

Thank you so much for your review! I highly recommend any guest who is considering a stay at the Lazy Parrot to read and re-read our website. All the negatives addressed in this review, are mentioned on our website. We don't want any guest to arrive and get a surprise that they didn't know about ahead of time. So happy to hear they weren't vacation breakers and would return in the future!

The Lazy Parrot Inn is a beautiful place to stay, the website doesn't do it justice! This place is in a beautiful spot and has very nice grounds and friendly staff. Rooms were spacious and clean, including microwave and mini fridge. The pool was relaxing and the parrots outside were adorable. The restaurant and bar areas are the real stars though. The Lazy Parrot Restaurant was by far the best food we found during our vacation. The Rum Shack was also great from the awesome bartenders to the $2!! rum and cokes. I really can't say enough good things about this place. We will definitely be coming back!

I wasnt expecting a whole lot from this Inn, but felt in love the second I got there. Is a hidden paradise inside of a small boutique Inn. The areas were clean, the employees were very nice and always offered a smile. The food was excellent (tried the chicken hamburguer, mahi mahi tacos, chiken burrito<--- the best! and the chiken quesadillas. Prices are great, nothing is expensive and the quality was excellent. My kids loved the pool, especially the kids pool. Our room was spacious and spotless clean, with a flat tv, eating table and seating area at the balcony. We hd a problem with our shower (only hot hot hot very hot water coming out), I let an employee know at the office and 5 minites later the handy man showed to the room with a ladder and tools and fixed the shower promptly. Service was overall excellent! If you want something sweet you have a bakery next door and a small caffe. I will came back very soon.

This is a cute place, from the outside you will think is a local house but when you get inside is not. rooms are quite big and at least the one that I got had a big balcony is not on the beach but is like a 4 min drive to el faro and the beach customer service on the bar is amazing and they have special on drinks the place is owned by americans so if you don't speak spanish you will be fine I was suprised that everybody spoke english I didn't try the food at the restaurant but the girl next to me was eating a salad and it looked good it does have a small pool but big enough for kids to play this is more like a family spot not for hanging out with youger people. They will borrow beach towels for the pool and the beach as many times as you need, and table games for the kids, lots of stairs to go to the pool and check out by the time you get to your car you will be tired ha ha the only two things that I will change is the check-in desk which is at the end of the property you go in and you don't know where to go , they have a desk close to the door nobody is there you have to keep going down stairs and down and down til you finally find the office wich is the souvenir store (expensive) and the other thing will be the breakfast the plastic cups were smelly and there's nothing but bagels and wafles if they change those too they will be perfect and they should open the bar until 12 at least because it is PR !!! overall good place to stay

We thank you for your recent review however I would like to comment in order to help future guests understand some of the comment made.

Over 20 years, we have added extensively, to our once private home. As our need for space grew, so did the disadvantage of our small entrance and the fact that so many people never made it past the LPR restaurant unless they were hotel guests. With that said, we decided to take our unconventional hotel to another level, with our hotel office poolside. The restaurant hostess station is frequently mistaken as the hotel office but signage (if read) will lead you to your destination through a beautiful garden and overlook of the pool area.

This guest arrived on the Labor Day weekend which is usually frequented by local families for one last long weekend of the summer season, during other times of the year our hotel is frequented more by couples looking for a quiet retreat.

Our breakfast includes many more items then just waffles and bagels, fruit, yogart, oatmeal, breads and cereal, as well as juice, milk and coffee. A deluxe continental breakfast in comparison to others I have seen in my travels. The glasses she commented on are washed in a 3 system vat with a clorine solution required by the health department so I am not sure if she just prefers glass dishes over plastic or she is sensitive to the solution we have to use.

Yes, our bars close at 11pm in order to allow all our guests a good nights sleep, as well as the neighbors, it is very quiet and tranquil in rural Puerto Rico and sound carries in outdoor environments. The area we are in is zoned for weekday closure at 12 midnight and weekend closure at 2pm. Last call drinks can always be taken to your room but we do ask you respect others during the late night hours.

Birdlady

My family and I have been staying at the Lazy Parrot for the past 5 years. Each trip we take is more memorable than the last. The hotel is clean, the staff is amazing and the breeze that comes off the ocean makes it perfect. The hotel has a very nice restaurant with food that is both impressive in proportion and taste. The Rum Shack is not your typical pool bar. Everyone there knows everyone else and they ALL make you feel welcomed and invited. Cant wait for our next trip. See you soon Mitch!

Room Tip: Get the pool view rooms on the second floor.

Thank you for your comments and review. Your biggest statement comes from your repeated stays! If the staff, service and food weren't consistent, I doubt you would keep coming back for more! Look forward to seeing your family again soon!

The Lazy Parrot was AWESOME! Highly recommend Room 205. Not quite sure how we ended up getting the coolest room on the property but you should request it. The patio is amazing! It has a table and hammock and is surrounded by trees. You can hear the birds chirping and the party atmosphere around at night. To our surprise, there was a bar at this place. All of the staff were great! Fun little place and great rooms, especially Room 205. Nice breakfast in a very comfortable environment. The name says it all. Great place to relax and get away from it all!

The new rooms building is very nice but the old building needs renovations asap. Too many stairs to move around. Not a baby friendly hotel. I would only recommend to couples that aren't staying with their babies or groups without kids. The office staff was very nice. The restaurant at the pool serves good and affordable food.

Room Tip: Asked for the new building rooms. Don't stay at the old building.

Just to let you know we are in the works to do some upgrades in the original building but we first needed to secure more infrastructure to ensure all parts of the hotel had water and power during outages. A task which has now been taken care of.

Our original rooms are considered our value rooms, they are smaller than our poolside rooms and are located in a higher traffic area. They don't have the higher graded furnishings as our poolside rooms but the bedding quality is the same.

I really hope this review has not turned away any families because we have been family friendly since our inception 23 years ago when my own kids roamed the hotel. Our 18 hole mini golf course is great for kids or adults and our hotel offers a volleyball pool (shallow on both ends) and baby pool to service the wee ones. We also have a variety of games that can be checked out to keep them entertained as well as Dish Network kid programming.

Thanks for your comments and we hope to see you again in the near future!
