We have had a great time, my family and me. The service was excellent, the place is very beautiful especially the sunsets in the lagoon, perfect for fishing. Very close to old San Juan and the airport.

The place is well kept and has a lot of space to do a nice terrace party , rooms are very well kept , and secluded from all metropolitan noises, the view of the lagoon is very beautiful!!! Sun sets are marvelous in this property, the only thing is the way to get to the place is inside a little local barrio!!!

We went on a girls trip & stayed. Denise & Jorge were awesome. Jorge, the grounds keeper, was just the best & took such great care of us. The place was beautiful & so was the view. I also loved the local feel of it & it was close to tons of beaches. Only cons were the wifi wasn't good in the upper levels of the property & water pressure was horrible. Also, there was some noise from airplanes & roosters but it was very minimal contrary to what other may have mentioned.

I stayed here with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday so we had all 10 rooms to ourselves. We rented through Airbnb so none of us expected a hotel feel, we wanted something more house-like and that is what we received. Overall, the property is well maintained and clean. There is an outdoor kitchen with fridge, gas stove, microwave, gas grill and large bar/prep area. The kitchen itself is small but we were able to make amazing meals for our large group there without a problem. At first glance, the area is sketchy but we fell in love with the neighbors and the roosters. The lodge is in the direct flight path for the airport so we heard every take off and landing, however, for me it wasn't a big deal. I was never awakened by the noise if that helps any. Pros: * The staff was awesome! He was present during the day to help with whatever was needed as we had a lot of deliveries scheduled (food, tables, chairs, linens, etc.) for a party. He assisted with setup and provided overall entertainment for us. * Unlike many, our group enjoyed the location as it allowed us to interact with the locals vs. being in an overpriced touristy area. Cons: * The cab services will automatically charge you over $50 for a ride from the airport even though it is less than 5 miles away simply because of the address and the mention of Loiza * Lack of room/laundry service -- rooms were never cleaned nor were the sheets changed during our stay. If you wanted them cleaned, you had to strip the bed yourself and leave the items in the hallway and be sure you told the house manager that the items were waiting * No hot tub Tips: If you are traveling with a large group or know that the lodge will be full during your stay, BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS!!! We ended up going to Walmart to purchase towels for our group because there were no facecloths available and getting other towels washed on a daily basis was a chore. Make friends with a cab driver and get their personal number if you do not have a car! We saved hundreds of dollars in cab fare by doing this (there were 23 of us) and they became our personal drivers/tour guides.

Our family stayed here 1 night after a lovely vacation on Culebra. We choose it because of price and proximity to airport. It is in a poorer area of San Juan, but once in the 'compound' of the hotel, it is very lovely. Sweet clean swimming pool and very clean nice room. The air conditioners were very loud (would have preferred option of overhead fans) but the AC worked very well. Would have appreciated coffee maker in room and few items for breakfast as there is no where locally available without car. Fruit/dry cereal/yogurt would have been great. tHere is a fridge if you bring supplies. Other reviewers have complained about the rooster noises here, but this is P.R., one can expect roosters. You need earplugs everyplace you stay here unless you are staying in a large corporate style hotel, which is what we did not want. Our taxi had trouble finding hotel, but we had no problem once we called for directions. The hotel needs a sign on the main road, indicating its location. Once in 'compound' we swam, read and relaxed. The hotel is on mangroves with a lovely dock. If we had more time that would have been great to explore. The owner Denise organized a taxi to a fairly local restaurant which was great, and we had great fish, mofongo and child happy food for decent price. A 4:30am taxi was arranged for us to the airport which arrived on time and all went smoothly. This is a lodge or guest house, not really a hotel with front of house staff available 24 hours/ day. The owner was always available by phone. It is a good location for the airport and for going to meet the ferry in Farjardo for Culebra or Vieques.
