We could not have been more disappointed. Our room was so tiny there was no place to sit except on the queen bed (we had asked for a king). There was absolutely no view, just a big wall on a tiny patio. It was, in fact, a claustrophobic feeling by someone who does not usually feel that way. We checked out right away and were promised a refund. Yet they billed our credit card for a full week, when we stayed a few minutes. We called and emailed and called again but no one responded to either so far, and it is over a month. Buyer beware !!

We loved our stay. Breakfast was delicious. Staff were attentive. Location was easy to get to. And the attention to detail was great! Empanadas just down the road were to die for and walking distance to the beach.

This was our honeymoon. The staff was wonderful. However, our outside shower/tub took 3 hrs to fill and never was warm. This was one of the reasons we booked here. We notified management, but 5 days straight we had little to no hot water. On our second to last night our Tv died. They refunded half of our cost. They need to work on the infrastructure of the hotel. Despite these hiccups we had a wonderful honeymoon. We will be back to PR.

First the good: Front desk staff and valet. Good quality bed. That's it. Negative: no locks for patio door ( security issue ), mold in shower, mold in a/c unit, housekeeping hit and miss. Sent email to their manager " Maria " was told she takes care of 3 properties! ( I guess this is to save payroll). I hope the owner Senora : Louisse Herger reads reviews.

A wonderful boutique hotel experience located close to great beaches, restaurants & activities. The staff all gave amazing customer service & we felt thoroughly looked after throughout. You have to try their SAGE restaurant for dinner. It is very small & intimate and the food was the best we had in the 2 weeks we were in Puerto Rico! Thank you to Polly for assisting us before & during our holiday!

We loved this hotel and would certainly be back. It’s nice that you can use amenities at the sister property as well. We would visit again! The interior design and hotel staff were top of the line. The walkability was exceptional.

Not worth the price, the bathroom had mold on the curtain and bathroom walls. The rooftop was beautiful and the food and drinks were amazing! I love the location close/walking distance to everything. Valet was easy and very efficient.

We booked the gran cru honeymoon suite for our stay. Not only was the room not ready at the 4PM check in time, they could not locate our reservations. My husband and I spent $415 on couples massages that were never scheduled. We had to spend over an hour just to prove we booked the couples massage and ensure that it was booked. We were guaranteed that it would be all set. We get up and head to our massage to realize that they also had no clue and our massage therapists were 30 mins late. They charged us for a cabana even though we chose not to purchase it. We spent the morning leaving arguing with the front desk staff to refund our cabana, waiting for the manager to arrive. Additionally we booked the hotel about 7 months ago and the card we used had been replaced by the time of the trip. They made us pay for the hotel yet again and refunded us to our OLD CARD. 1500 is still yet to appear on my account to be refunded to us, which we will also spend all morning arguing with the manager and office staff about. For the amount of money we spent on a 2 night stay the hotel should have been more than accomodating.
