This is a small friendly hotel with only 16 rooms. Since daughter and her husband were with us the first two nights we rented the VIP suite which consisted of 2 bedrooms (1 with king size bed, and 1 with 2 standard size beds), plus a kitchen/dining room combination. When they left we moved into a regular room. Breakfast is served across the road made to order with 3 choices - ham and eggs, eggs and pancakes, or a ham, cheese and egg sandwich.
Likes: Wonderful ocean views from two balconies in the suite - one off of the living room, and one off of the bedroom. Decent ocean view from the regular room. Conveniently located very close to the El Yunque rain forest and also to the kiosks. Waking up to the sounds of waves crashing and chickens crowing can't be beat. Very friendly staff, and were especially helpful in letting us move directly from one room to another even though our new room had been occupied the night before.
Dislikes: The hotel is fighting mother nature. Due to the water level rising, the waves now crash into the hotel and therefor there is no longer any direct beach access, but you can walk up the road about 4 blocks to reach one. Poor lighting in both rooms. Lots of construction going on due to the need for wall re-enforcement against the waves. No smoke alarm in suite , and emergency exits were locked due to construction. No internet access from suite (but good in regular room). I expected more amenities in the suite, but such things as a coffeemaker were not there and I had to request drinking glasses. The only furniture in the regular room was a bed and dresser, but on request they brought me in a small table.
Despite my negatives, if I were back in the area, I would stay at the Yunque Mar just because of the helpful staff.
