Good location in the center of El Poblado de Boqueron is like the Rio Carnaval on the weekends. Good Seafood & Mojitos.

Boquemar definitely has the best location to enjoy El Poblado de Boqueron since its walking distance to all the entertainment and the beach. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Hard to get a reservation, small rooms , outdated. The bathroom is so small that two people cannot fit at the same time. The only good thing is that is centrally located in the town of Boqueron, all the entertaiment is within walking distance.

Thank you for your review and your recognition of our excellent location as our Parador is within walking distance to the beach and to all the entertainment of El Poblado de Boqueron. We have different types of rooms, some rooms are cozy, others are roomy, but all of them are well kept and intended to make our guest feel welcome.

Staff was very nice, we were going to stay at a second flor they gave us a bucket and told us to come to the counter and they would suply us with ice, a control and a key they told us to plug the mini refridgerater when we got in, it was more like a bad motel, the room was filled with mosquitos,the bathrooms smelled liked something had died, the beds were hard as were the little pillows the quilt gave a itch that was terrible, the A/c was not working properly it made a racket, you could here children runing around like it was a play ground for at least 20-25 minutes till we called, and the Staff stoped them, the view from the balcony had all the streets wires hanging so near, that it felt very unconfortable and un safe, the lamp by the bedside had no bulb If your looking to get drunk and crash we got it cheap in Guztaso but if your planing a romantic getaway dont do it the rooms have 1 actual metal key with the room number if you get to park your car in the small space they give you a paper to place in the wind shield with your room number and name, like i said if your drunk none of this will bother you to top of the island had two earthquakes so we just picked up our stuf and there remote that we had to leave at the counter and left while the staff tried to reashure us that the tremor was felt in the whole Island we said thanks but that we had to leave, I'm sorry but this place needs to fix this it doesnt have an elevater had i noticed just a big slide like for wheel chairs we didnt get to enjoy Boqueron everything was just not in our favor=[ a really bad night!

Thank you for your recognition of our staff service, and on behalf of all of us please accept our apology for the inconvenients you indicated. We do not pretend to be a luxury hotel, we are a family owned hotel operating uninterrupted for more than 25 years. Our efforts are toward clean, comfortable, properly working equipment in all of our rooms. We serve families and couples that visit us looking for a beach property, to enjoy the activities Boqueron and Cabo Rojo have to offer. Thats the reason why we had that incredible offer on Gustazo and why we offer excellent deals all year 'round. So, with all due respect, everything that we offer may seem to be good to be true but it is!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

The staff was very cordial and helpful. The hotel is within steps to restaurants, bars, beach and the Boqueron night life. I stayed on a first floor which I believe are the more simple rooms. I hear the rooms on upper floors are better. Visited the restaurant on site and the staff was courteous but overwhelmed (at least the day I was there) Food was good and their Flan de Queso awesome.

I happened to stay there during some Puerto Rican Holiday weekend, so the hotel and streets were infested with the "local young crowd". It was very noisy, kids running and yelling down corridor, some guy blowing a whistle at all hours of the night, yelling and blaring his reggaeton music by the pool. People swimming at 3 am making tons of noise. If you need a place to sleep comfortably for the night, this is definetely not the place. It's too loud and it seems like there is no crowd control.

The room felt dark and more like a cheap motel. Again I stayed on the first floor and perhaps the upstairs rooms are better. I didnt have any mosquito problems in the hotel. Even when sitting by the outdoor patio or pool. The pool is very SMALL. But the beach is so close that you can opt for that. Wi-fi non-existent; however, I am not sure if the hotel claims to have wi-fi. I had no cell service while in the hotel room.

I'm a firm believer of not knocking it into you try it. So with that said you may want to try this hotel; however make sure it is during the week and during the time that Puerto Ricans are back at school/work. And also ask for an upstairs room which appear to be better.

Boquemar, Manager at Parador Boquemar, responded to this review, August 26, 2011
Thank you for your compliments for our staff and our homemade "flan de queso".
We have different kinds of accomodations, with more spacious rooms on the second and third floors, some of wich have balcony with view to Boqueron Bay and El Poblado. Receive our apology for the inconvenience during your stay on the weekend of July 25th. Because that weekend is one of the most crowded in the year we recommend to visit Boqueron in some other time or holiday, specially if you are looking for a more quiet stay and to enjoy Boqueron in a different way. Regarding your comment on security, we are going to increase security for that weekend but also request the cooperation of our guest. Also, we have Wi-Fi in the area of the lobby and terrace and the key code is provided at Front Desk.
From all of us working in Parador Boquemar, thank you for taking the time to write this review.

The last time i came here with my wife and kids was in 1994 and we had a wonderful time. Now, 17 years later I stayed here with my wife and it was not any different from our stayed in 1994. The service staff was outstanding, very helpful and courtious, the facilities were great, our room was in "mint condition" very clean, and spacious, very comfortable. Was very clean all around. The hotel restaurant "Las Cascadas" was outstanding, meals were great and so the attending staff. We are planning to coming back this October. We had a great time. Anyone who wants to rest, eat good, feel like home, "This is the place"

I checked in with my mother and two children... to this dreary dark, mosquito infested over priced inn. From the time I packed and carried my luggage down the stairs my daughter and I were biten over 15 times by mosquitos! Thank goodness grandma had allergy pills to calm the reaction to all the mosquito bites we received. I truely do not recommend this inn to families with children!

Please receive our apology for this inconvenience. Because we are so close to the beach and mangroves we have more mosquitos and insects in our area, especially after many rainy days. Even though we try to minimize this problem by fumigating and improving our daily maintenance sometimes it's not enough. We are very sorry for this situation and thank you for your comment.
