My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights before moving to another hotel and it was okay. If you are going to Puerto Rico on a budget and just want to relax at the beach and dont expect luxury, than this is a good place for you.
The location is EXCELLENT--you're right next to the beach and you get free beach chairs for the day. The rooms are quite tiny and so is the shower, but it is clean and has a great temperature (not too hot/not too cold). The bar/food was pretty good but there are others around the area that are cheaper and better quality.
Now for the cons. The shower only had cold water for our last night which was refreshing but annoying at the same time (refreshing because you're sweaty by the end of the day but annoying because I always want a decent hot shower by the end of the day).
On our last night we had to wake up at 2:45AM to go to the Airport. Our phone alarms did NOT wake us up, but rather, it was the sound of the water pump that kept me up all night and woke me up on time to leave for the airport. By far, it was the most annoying, vibrating sound you will ever hear--thank goodness we didn't plan on sleeping in for the day.
The elevator sucks. Don't take it. You don't need to anyways since the whole hotel is only 3 floors and not a lot of stairs to take.
Overall, if you can live with cold showers, occasionally loud annoying noises at night and tiny rooms with very few amenities, then by all means this is for you. We stayed here for the location and the beach which certainly did not fail.
