Coral Princess Hotel

Reviewed February 18, 2014

I usually don't write reviews, but this hotel warrants one. I'm used to staying in well known hotels on tropical vacations i.e. Hilton, Marriott, Starwood, etc... It was tiney-tiny, almost like a bed and breakfast, but great service and lovely staff. It's unlike the large hotels in the Condado area, but that's what makes this stand out. It is right off of Ashford Avenue where there are many beach access areas and walk-able restaurants. When the hotel mentions they are a quick walk from the beach, they aren't lying. We got to the beach each morning in about 2 mintues, and it is conveniently located right near the Walgreens on Ashford which has everything you could need, including beer and liquor for the beach! It's about 5 miles from the San Juan airport ($20 cab) and about 3 miles from Old San Juan ($17 cab), although you wouldn't need to stray far from the hotel to find fun things to do...We also tried out the casino at La Concha hotel, which was only a short walk away. I never felt unsafe there and overall had a great experience. Definitely would stay again...only thing to mention is the rooms are pretty small, but serve the purpose--sleeping quarters and luggage storage! There's no need to be couped up in your hotel room with so much fun to do elsewhere!

My wife and I stayed at the Coral Princess for two nights at the end of January 2014. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The washrooms were very nice. The bed was quite comfortable. The breakfast was typical of the free continental breakfasts offered by hotels. We found enough to give us a good breakfast. We didn't have a chance to try out the pool...it looked pleasant enough. The staff were professional and helpful. Anything we asked for was done cheerfully. It's location is perfect in one of the safest parts of San Juan.

There is a 24 hour Walgreens around the corner and the beach is a 5 minute walk. The beach was not used much as the waves were quite high, more suited to boogie boarding and surfing than swimming.

The taxi fare from the airport was $21 for two people and three pieces of luggage. It was about the same taxi fare from the hotel to the cruise ship pier.

We are returning to San Juan next January and will consider staying here again.

Room Tip: We would choose an upper floor room next time as main floor rooms had no view. Be sure to request a...

Housekeeping was always quick to clean our room and get us fresh towels. Breakfast was good for being free and served on time every morning. Hard booked eggs, ham, pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices and coffees. Our room was a decent size and clean feeling. I would have liked a full length mirror in the room, and a hotel vending machine. Hotel is secure and you need to be buzzed in to enter. There was always someone at the front desk to let us in. Good spot for the price. We would stay here again.

Exactly what I was looking for in that area. Small, intimate hotel that actually feels like you are in Puerto Rico unlike many of the large hotels in the Condado area. Super nice staff, great simple complimentary breakfast, AC. Upgraded me to a better room when I arrived early. 5 minute walk from the beach. Wonderful stay.

Stayed overnite here on return from Culebra. Close to restaurants, beach and shops. One block off a very busy Ashford Street. Used the spa and enjoyed the breakfast. People at desk extremely helpful. A terrific choice in a lovely position, apartments, parks and homes of Condado. Bed was comfortable and room very clean.In an area dominated by highrise hotels it's a small European boutique hotel. Buses around the corner right into Old San Juan.
Would gladly stay here again.

Half a block from the buses and taxis. Unfortunately we were there during San Sebastian festival and the busses were not running-no notice given. The hotel is well kept, nice breakfast with a good variety of items. The staff is friendly and helpful. You will need transportation into the old town (the official 'old town' - everything looks old in San Juan). I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room off the courtyard.

Excellent value and delightful breakfast area that was covered for rain and open for sun. Access to hot tub was limited by hours open, so we couldn't use when we wanted. Easy walk to beach and other areas of Candado.
