We've stayed at hosteria deal mar twice now. We really enjoy staying right at the beach. They have cute rooms. The Resturant at the hotel has delicious brunch, lunch and dinner. We went with another family and their children and everyone had a blast.

You literally step out onto the beach. It was beautiful to wake up and view the ocean. A couple of nights I left the patio door open to listen to the waves. The room was very clean and spacious. It is an older property but well maintained. The food in the restaurant was very good. The only reason I did... More

We ate here twice. We were walking the beach and found this restaurant. Not many beachfront eating places in this area of the beach so were glad to take a break and have a meal and a drink. The service was a little slow, one of our glasses had a chip on the top edge and there were ants in... More

While visiting Puerto Rico for a couple of days we decided to stay at this hotel/boutique right by the ocean. Excellent location, ocean view room #5, really pleasant stay, courteous staff.

Best guess house in he area, beside the fact that is one the few places with direct access to the beach. Try their restaurant UVVA and ask for HUMUS there. One thing I loved is the feeling of a more familiar type of place compared to the impersonal atmosphere of big hotels.
