We stayed here for a night before a transfer elsewhere on the island since our flight got in late. The night manager only spoke Spanish (fine for us but maybe difficult for some) and didn't give any instructions about the AC - which definitely could have been cooler. Thank goodness for the ceiling fan. The bed was kind of broken... More

We stopped by this mellow open (to the ocean) bar in Isla Verde for an afternoon drink. It reminded me of a hip little hotel/motel one would encounter in Montauk. The service was attentive. I would return if in the area.

My girlfriend and I went there for happy hour, and ended up staying for dinner. Great view, ocean view + breeze, and good service. The prices are average for the area, and the staff is friendlier than most places we visited that weekend.

The coco loco drink is fantastic and the food is really good too! The shrimp carbonara was absolutely fantastic and their mofongo was fantastic. Had the jalapeño poppers and calamari for appetizers and they were both very yummy

This was an awesome place to stay!!! Staff very friendly. The place Is right on the beach and only 20 minutes from Old San Juan. We spent every evening on the back dock over the water just talking and enjoying the warm breeze off the water. Very relaxing!!
