This hotel was great. Nothing super fancy, but well appointed, and with friendly staff. The location is perfect - away from the all inclusive resorts of Nuevo and the bustle of Downtown - safe and with lots of cute restaurants and shops nearby. An ice cream shop (open til 11pm!) is about 1-2 blocks away - yum! Lots of kids...

We have no complaints: the room was always clean, maintenance came quickly on two occasions when needed, and the location on the beach was perfect. I recommend booking directly with the hotel as we were given the room we requested: higher level...

Looking for an excellent value in the heart of the Romantic Zone? This hotel, right on the beach, is worth every penny. Yes, it needs some fresh paint and touch-ups, but you simply can't beat the views or the friendly staff. We were the only Americans in the hotel and were greeted warmly every day. Housekeeping did a great job,...
