My wife and I stayed at the Fajardo Inn for 3 nights during our trip to Puerto Rico and I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could - better than average, but not quite very good. I would describe this resort as a nice place - for exactly what it is... a good value resort that can be utilized as an excellent launching pad for day trips.
+ Value - This is a great resort-like place for families looking to come on a budget. There are multiple pools, mini-golf, basketball courts, and a gym. You will definitely find nicer places, but I guarantee they will significantly more. Everything is clean and well maintained. They also seemed to do a good job of grouping singles/couple in one area and families in another, really allowing everyone to enjoy the resort based on their needs.
+ Location for day trips (not for staying around the hotel) - You can hop in your car and be at the Ferry for Culebra and Vieques in 5 mins, El Yunque in less than 30 mins, Luqillo Beach in 20 mins, and the Bioluminescent Bay in 10 mins.
+ Talking birds... gotta love those talking birds
+ Friendly staff who were helfpul with driections
- Pool/Beach Towels... are you kidding me!!! Their towles are as thin as T-shirts. They are very strict on returning towels and not losing your towel cards ($25 for each card if you do). The towels might be worth 50 cents on a good day, but don't lose that card or misplace your towel. Even front desk clerk checking us in joked about their towel situation.
- Internet in the lobby only. Makes it a bit tougher for planning those day trips
- Location in town is not the greatest. You must drive to any restaurants (other than the 2 restaurants attached to the hotel) or to the beach.
= Blue Iguana is a typical tex-mex type restaurant that serves the purpose of an easy meal or a drink instead of needing to get into your car to go to a good restaurant. An ideal place after a long day when you just want a quick meal and aren't expecting anything that will knock your socks off. Great deals on the daily special. Staff was very attentive and friendly at the restaurant.
= Mini-golf was really fun for only ~$2 for each person, but the course has definitely seen some better days. Just like the resort, a good value for exactly what it is...
