My family of 6 just got back from staying at Coqui del Mar, and our stay was perfect. Noyda and Neal helped out a lot from questions about restaurants to Boat rides. We had 4 kids and they had bikes,snorkeling wear, and board games for everyone to use! Thanks again for a great summer trip

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and we could not be more pleased. We stayed in the "El Pescado" unit. One unique feature of this room is the "Fish 'n' Flush," the toilet that doubles as a fishbowl. We had to feed the fish every day, but I found myself looking forward to this!

The absolute best part of our stay here was the indispensable binder in the room. The managers have done all of the travel research for you, and placed it in a helpful binder! The information was very helpful and accurate. They had information about restaurants, beaches, public transit, taxis, day trips, and useful info for staying at the guesthouse itself! We were very impressed.

The unit came with a gas stove/oven, utensils, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender... most everything you need for a good kitchen. Granted, we ate most meals out, but it was nice making breakfast in the morning, and having the option to make other meals. There is also a laundry facility on site, which allowed us to pack lightly. There was also Netflix and Hulu plus available on an Apple TV unit (which was nice for relaxing after a long day out), and an Apple computer which was hooked up to the TV. The only negative about the room is the thin windows. You can hear everything outside, which means they can probably hear you inside.

The guest house is in a nice residential area, one block away from the beach, but it was about a ten minute walk down to a more public beach area. They had beach towels, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. to rent for free! There are several restaurants near Coqui del Mar, but none of them too close. Be prepared to walk!

The managers were very helpful. As for the nearby restaurants, TRUST THE PROVIDED MAP! It lists all the good places.

We really loved our stay. This place is an excellent value!

This place is great! I love that Coqui del Mar is so close to the beach. You can walk to restaurants too. Saturdays, they host a happy hour in the courtyard for all their guest and friends. I got to meet a lot of nice fun people from U.S. other cities.

You need more ideas on what to do and where to go, Noyda has many great suggestions. She knows the latest in San Juan.

Convenient and inexpensive. I really enjoyed staying there and I'm looking forward to returning again. Thank you Coqui del Mar

This is a charming place to stay and within walking distance to the beach, boutiques, great restaurants, dancing and parks! No Spanish, no problem! The staff is bilingual. As a solo traveler, I also felt very safe at Coqui Del Mar which is in a gated community. This is a great option for any traveler looking for an affordable, centrally located, and not too commercial accommodation. I would highly recommend it!

My husband and I had an incredible time at Coqui Del Mar. Noyda and the staff took care of our every need. We were treated like family. We cannot say enough about our aparment, wifi access, apple tv, comfortable bed, plenty of room and the court yard was beautiful. Loved the fish tank toilet. They had everything you would need for the beach, towels, chairs, coolers. The beach was only a 5 minutes walk. Old San Juan was a 15 minute drive or short bus ride away. Noyda and Neal gave great recommendations on where to eat, what to see and how to get there. You could tell they truly appreciated your business and did everything they could to help you enjoy your stay

Beach access and good neighborhood. Well kept grounds and public area. Nice room. Friendly hosts and neighbors who are incredibly sensitive to anything you need. Good technology amenities (nice to have appletv, netflex, hulu, etc.). Seriously, the staff is phenomenal.

Minor areas where there could have been improvements with communications between staff and guests or the quality of the room since it is a guest house and not a hotel. I don't traditionally stay in guest houses, so it's not always clear what to expect.

We let the staff know about our suggested improvements after our trip, and they responded promptly, stated they would address them, and were appreciative of the honest feedback. Seem like genuinely great people running the guest house who care about your stay.

Room Tip: We did La Luna, the most affordable room. It was smaller than it looked on the photo, but the kitche...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
If you want to experience Puerto Rico like a local while still having all the conveniences of home, this is your place. We make you feel at home. You have private personal space (all rooms have private kitchens and private bathrooms), while in a beach side neighborhood setting away from the crowded tourist areas. You will experience some of the best Puerto Rico has to offer while living like a local, visiting the restaurants frequently visited by locals (no chain restaurants near us). We are in the Ocean Park beach area of San Juan, in between Old San Juan and the international airport. We are 3 minutes walk to the nearest beach. Ocean Park beach is one of the locals's favoites, and also a preferred spot for kite surfing and windsurfers. We are 5 minutes walk to the tourist bus route (which goes to the casinos and to Old San Juan) and walkable to restaurants and grocery stores. Each of our units have full kitchen, free WiFi, cable TV/DVD, Apple TV, in room safes, and an Ipod player. We strive to provide more than expected, and I think you will find that with us, from the beach chairs, or bicycles to the in room safes, there are never extra charges. One of the best things about us is our live in management, Noyda and Neal, who call Coqui del Mar home and welcome you as if it is your home as well. They are local experts and can help you find a great restaurant, plan a special event, or enjoy a chat. Our courtyard, bar-b-que and jacuzzi are great for meeting other guests. If you are looking for personal service and a unique, eco-friendly (we have solar hot water supplemented by electric, ceiling fans supplemented by ACs, and offer recycling), and a clean guest house for a reasonable price, then check us out. We are not a Marriott and offer our own unique sense of quirky and intimate Puerto Rico. Come join us. *Our free parking is on a public street in front of our location. Not difficult to find a spot, but it is not designated parking for our guest house and is open to all. * Airport transportation acknowledges that there is taxi service from the airport. **Free parking is on street parking ... more   less
