“Excellent view to the beach and super relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Is a super comfortable hotel (parador) to stay. Very clean all the place, clean sheets, excellent A/C, the staff are very friendly.

The breakfast was included and was perfect the 2 days. The Rainforest El Yunque is near 15minutes and 20 to Fajardo. Plus 2 minutes from the Luquillo Kiosks.

Beach is back at the hotel but for get inside the water you will have to walk 1 minute.

Highly recommended

This hotel was recommended by a local birding guide who stays here herself when in the area. The staff is very accommodating, the rooms and public areas are very clean, the pool area is nice and there is a hot breakfast included in the reasonable price. We had a second floor room overlooking the pool, and left the sliding door to our balcony just cracked open all night. The sound of the surf helped make this our best sleep of the trip. We did swim in the ocean at the hotel which can only happen at low tide, but it's quite shallow. You can't beat this hotel for a clean basic room with a great view. It's very close to El Yunque rainforest and the kioskos eating area which is also fun. No luxury here, so if that's your criteria, go elsewhere. If you want a clean, safe, friendly place, this is it.

Room Tip: Although the entire property is walled, ask for a second floor room if you're concerned about se...

beautiful view, if you're out in the back. View from the room is of the pool which is pretty awkward when your room is on the first floor. doors to the balcony were not safely secure and easily accessible by jumping over the railing from the pool area so I was afraid to leave anything valuable in the room. staff was friendly and free wifi was a plus but I barely got reception in my room 107. For the price I guess I would stay again if necessary. If you keep your expectations low, you will love it.

Room Tip: I hear that the rooms on the second floor have a nice view

Quiet and clean hotel with ocean view rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great place to relax and enjoy the view and sound of the ocean. Though is right on the beach, you cannot go swimming there but near by beaches are just 5 to 15 mins away. The Yunque rainforest is only 5 mins away. Lots of cheap places to eat near hotel.

Totally enchanted by the ocean view, the calmness of the place, the big and comfortable bed of the room, the clean conditions, and the amicable personnel. Needless to say, the prices are unbeatable. Thank you all for allowing my family to be together in an awesome environment!!!! I will surely be back soon!!!

This parador is located ocean side in a small residential area, offering a quiet retreat and amazing ocean views of Luquillo beaches. During the fall season there is no beach access which means we got to sleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the jetties - a rare treat, even at a 5 star hotel. The location is unbeatable - 5 minute drive to Luquillo's famous surf beach, "La Pared" and Los Kioskos de Luquillo and and 15 minute drive to El Yunque. If you need 5 star amenities this is not your place. There are no fancy toiletries in the bathroom, the lobby and "meal" area are not luxurious and the meals are simple BUT the rooms, sheets and towels are clean, the beds are comfortable, the meal area offers ocean views and the customer service is EXCELLENT. Brian and Christian in particular were very welcoming and helpful. We will certainly be back to Hotel Yunque Mar and gladly recommend it.

Room Tip: You will need transportation to explore the area as the hotel is located in a small residential neig...

We spent a short weekend at Hotel Yunque Mar in Luquillo, PR: it was a pleasant stay, beautiful view from our Family suite, excellent customer service from the staff: above and beyond their duty, and courteous. I highly recommend this hotel/parador, very close to Luquillo beach and El Yunque rain forrest. Do not expect a 5 star hotel with 5 star facilities and amenities, it is clean and comfortable, and very relaxing being so close to the ocean. Great value. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The family suite is very comfortable for a family of 5, and has a spectacular view and sounds of the...
