My client and her friends stayed at El Canario by the Lagoon in San Juan, and she said that it was a HORRIBLE experience! The only good thing about the hotel is the location! The customer service was HORRIBLE! There was false advertising, and the room was dirty! On Wednesday May 19, there was a flood in her room next to the window near the balcony. They could not figure out where the flood came from! But it filled up about half the room! When she asked the front desk clerk for assistance, she was given dirty towels! Housekeeping refused to clean her room. There was also construction, which she was unaware of. So it was noisy to the point to where she and her friends could not sleep! They were right next to the construction site! They were finally given clean towels, but she had to ask for them! The sheets had sand on them. So she was unable to sleep! There was also a pile of trash in the corners. Plus, she had to pay $200 for a room with a double bed. She deserves compensation for the HORRIBLE experience! She deserves to be compensated for a HORRIBLE stay!…
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.
