My girlfriends & I planned a weekend in PR to celebrate birthdays but this was a last minute trip. We had very little lead time to plan so this hotel was perfect since it was across the street from the beach. They had a pool that was very beautiful, a little unexpected for this hotel. Unfortunately, not all of the lounge chairs around the pool were in the sun; some were under an awning so we spent most of our time during the day at the beach. They still gave us pool towels that we took to the beach. The staff at the front desk was great and friendly. They have a pizza place that is in the lobby that also has a full bar if you wanted to get a drink & bring it to the pool or up to your room. The ice machine is only on the 4th floor though, not on every floor. Parking at the hotel was free for hotel guests.The rooms were very clean but they were cheap on the towels so we had to ask the maid everyday for extra towels. The room was facing the street so we heard a little bit of the traffic during the day but nothing that kept you up at night (we were on the 6th floor). Its walking distance to a lot of great restaurants & across the street from some of the big hotels that have great nightlife. The only bad thing I could say about this hotel was the smell in the lobby. I dont know what it was...mold or bug spray but we smelled it as soon as we walked in every day & night. We didnt smell it in the elevators or on any of the floors.
