Stayed at Hotel san Juan for 5 nights in Jan. 2007. The setting is like a tropical forest and the hotel is laid out in several units with about 6 rooms each. The rooms are spacious and fairly clean, but they feel tired and washed out. The lobby is pretty, but the quality of the rooms do not match. I did have to get rid of a cockroach in the room once. There's no such thing as a hand towel, washcloth, bath mat or kleenex, so take those if you use them. Also, the toilet paper supplied is a really tiny roll per day (no extras!), again I would advise that you take some with you. BTW, there was NO hot water in the hotel while we were there because the heater had broken. We're still waiting for them to replace the light bulb that was out when we got the room. No dressers and limited clothes hanging space and hangers. The people are very nice, even though one of the front desk people was a bit grumpy. The porters are great. We never used the pool, but it is large and I never heard loud music, etc. However they close it very early. Our rate included a buffet breakfast which was quite adequate. For dinners, you can go to a buffet dinner (10 pesos per person), although they didn't have it the night we went, due to the small number of guests in the hotel. We ordered a la carte for about 12 pesos each and it was pretty good. The best food at the hotel is at the Italian restaurant above the buffet place. You can have a great view of the city in a gracious atmosphere and food is very good, at a cost of about 8-12 pesos, including wine or beer and depending on your choice of main course (seafood spaghetti was around 5 pesos and quite good!). There is a small foreign exchange office outside the lobby and a little gift and postcard stand. There is also a cafeteria beside the pool where you can buy bottled water, pre-packaged snacks and sandwiches. Overall, not a bad place, but nothing great either.
