This is an okay hotel, pretty light on amenities. Staff was friendly and courteous. No pool, though they allow you to borrow towels and bring them to the beaches that are within walking distance. Continental breakfast was poor.
It's a pleasant experience when the hotel you booked is the hotel you expected. I value communications as being a good indicator of a good establishment and the El Canario was great in their communications and confirmation. The hotel itself was close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping (even a Walmart within a 15 min walk!). It was clean and the breakfast was an added value. The taxi cost to the hotel was around $22 and the Uber to the cruise terminal was only $6.50. And the hotel receptionist was exceptional (management ... give her a raise!).
My wife and I stayed here for two nights prior to going on a cruise. The hotel is very clean and simple. It cost us $11 to uber there from the airport. The location is great. Very short walk to the beach and numerous restaurants near by. The staff is very friendly and the hotel has a free continental breakfast in the morning. I will definitely stay there again next time I am visiting Puerto Rico. Uber was $8 into old an Juan and same amount for ride to the port. Overall a great two day stay.
We stayed there 2 weeks ago for 1 night before a cruise. As other reviewers said, small and older. And that's ok for us because the hotel was clean and in a safe area. Also the staff was very nice. A couple of blocks from the beach and a number of restaurants and bars. We had no problems walking around in the evening. I would stay there again.
Last time we stayed was 15 years ago. Little has changed. Older property located one block from the water. At $100 a night its about a third of the cost of the beachfront hotels. We rented two chairs ,umbrella, and towels from La Concha for $20. Our room was adequate size with a small balcony that had a view of the lagoon. It had a table ,two chairs, and fridge. No micro wave or coffee maker. Tiny bathroom with cheap amenities. Hotel has rooftop terrace with tables and great views. No one else used it the two nights we stayed. Continental breakfast was adequate but only fruit a banana. You can eat outside in a small garden. Lots of tropical ambiance. There is a pay washer/dryer. Computer/printer. No pool. Staff was outstanding. Couldn't do enough for us. Located in Condado section of San Juan. Numerous bars, restaurants, and stores within easy walking distance. No smoking property. Uber was readily available.…
