The location was great and allowed us to walk just about everywhere...we even hiked back from the beach at their sister hotel La Concha (this is more than most people will want to walk tho). From the moment we arrived the staff was fantastic and very accommodating to any of our needs. Our room was on the first floor and might be a little noisy if you are a really light sleeper. There is an extra door to close off the noise from the bar outside and it was not an issue for us. We also had a patio area outside that had a nice water feature. The bathroom was clean and contemporary in contrast to the rest of the hotel and room.
We took advantage of the wine and cheese on the 3rd floor and really enjoyed relaxing up by the pool. The pool area is small and the view is not the best but you also have access to the amenities at La Concha which had several very nice pools both on and off the beach.
Only two negatives I can think of was a slight musty smell in room and a leak in the shower if you hit it at the right angle. Really minor issues that had no impact on our stay. Great place to stay to explore Old San Juan.
