“Nothing much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Better off spending a little more of your money and finding a place worth your money and time. This place I came across at the last minute. Me and my husband were reluctant to stay at this place as soon as we got there. But he was tired and just wanted to relax. The rooms are dull and would be better off just having a bed and throwing everything else out. We didnt bother sitting in the one chair that was in the room and the balcony doors are in dire need of repair. Breakfast could be better but at least it is something for you to start the day off with. The restaurant is closed and they have something they call the merandero but its more like a kiosk for the community or maybe I should say barrio this hotel is placed at. People "locals" drinking there at all hours from morning until late evenings and the lady who cooks "though good" looks like shes on something. Other than that staff was nice and gave us directions to el yunkue and the ferry docks to go to vieques island. Hate to say this but this place is a last resort. Needs alot of work.

We arrived at night and drove here in the dark. I must say this place was at first rather disappointing. Basic and a bit bleak - probably was nice once and hopefully will be again - this place is under repair as the sea wall collapsed so you can't get near the water. The outdoor pool table was covered up and the patio was full of construction debris. Their restaurant was closed up tight but breakfast is served across the lane and is McDonalds quality - you get to eat it with the local guys drinking beer in the morning, which might be a kind of authentic experience. Rooms are simple without a decent chair or hook to hang a towel on. Walls are bare but there is nice art in the halls. It is overall quite clean. The staff is friendly and means well but this place needs to get its act together real soon. They seem to have lowered their rate a bit so you get what you pay for. A strip of good food kiosks is a short drive nearby and Loquillo beach is gorgeous.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking pool have a side view of the ocean.

Basic but nice. The room is fine, small tv, bathroom is nice. The artwork throughout the hotel is nice. The balcony with access and view to the ocean is under construction so we didn't get a great view, but its not bad from our little balcony. Breakfast was delicious, made to order, so you didn't get rubbery eggs.

I arrived expecting the Yunque Mar Beach Hotel to actually have a beach. apparently recent storms have caused extensive damage to seawall, step and adjacent areas. There was no beach and even if there were it would have been unaccessable due to storm damage. the staff was very friendy and helpful and room was clean.....but in current state of repair cannot recommend.

Very nice, no frills hotel right on the beach. Unfortunately, due to erosion, there is no beach access in the winter and we had to drive to a local beach which turned out to be quite nice. I have been told that you can walk the beach outside of the hotel in the summer months but we were not able to do that. The pool looked nice and clean but was too cold for us to swim in.

The staff was very nice, friendly and very accomodating.

We stayed in a suite (#208) and it was clean and comfortable with a mini fridge, microwave and TV in each of the 2 bedrooms.

Breakfast was good with coffee, juice and your choice of an egg and ham sandwich, pancakes & eggs, or ham and eggs. It was cooked to order.

A small convenience store is located right across the street but other than that it is a residential neighborhood and there are no shops or restaurants within walking distance.

Parking is free and right across the street from the hotel.

I stayed in this hotel with my friends 6 of us in room 207, that room as best view, from the bedroom, you can see and hear the sea thundering waves all night, all day. The beach behind the hotel is eaten up by sea, so now the waves are crashing against the hotel wall, imagine the sound.
Best part beside the view is the morning breakfast, which is freshly made to order and is yummy (and free)
my only concern was, of our stay for one day, our room was not cleaned (partly cleaned) and room door was left open. beside that I loved the place and staff!
Staff did apologized for this miss.

Room Tip: make sure to go for Room 207 / 208 for the best view, only if you can take the sound of waves all ni...

Clean and functional place to stay, but there are absolutely no extras in these rooms; bare minimal furniture, towels, lights, etc. disappointed that there was so much beach erosion you couldn't get out onto the beach in front of the hotel. Also, the pool was green while I was there- disappointing again. There aren't many hotels in this part of the island, so you might be stuck with this one, but at least get an ocean view room upstairs.
