“Exceeded all expectations - Group of 10”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Our stay was in March of 2014. All 10 of us stayed in the El Sol apartment. Fully furnished, and fully accommodating, the room was great. We saved so much money staying here instead of a hotel. We had great service from start to finish, cleaning our room and towels every day. The apartment is a quick walk from the beach!

Room Tip: El Sol is the biggest room, and accommodated all 10 of us perfectly.

My wife and I stayed for seven days in the La Luna room at Coqui del Mar. Everything you read in the previous posts is true, so there is no point in repeating it. Stay here if you want pleasant accommodations, in a good, safe location near the beach, with a helpful host. Stayed April 13 to April 20.

This was an excellent place to stay with all the amenities. Spacious living room, bedrooms and baths, one of the bathroom had steam bath too. The Kitchen was well equipped.

The GPS takes you to the coqui del mar, but you cannot enter through the gate where GPS takes you. you have to drive around and enter through the other end of the gate.

I forgot the caretakers name, but she was really helpful. We arrived late in the night at 1 pm, and she helped us with the directions so late in the night

Close to beach, local places and restaurants. They had bikes for us to take ride along the beach and the city.

A nice place at a nice price.

My sister and I recently returned from our first vacation in Puerto Rico. Thanks to the previous reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay at Coqui del Mar in the La Concha studio. It was the best decision ever! All the comforts of home and perfect hosts! We WILL be back on future visits. Our only slight disappointment was the hot tub was broken, but we understood the difficulty the Noyda and Neal have trying to get someone out to repair it. We will enjoy it for sure next time. All in all, we would rate this place higher than 5 stars if we could. Can't wait to return!!!

This is beginning to become a regular tradition and one that I'd gladly continue to keep up! I stayed at Coqui del Mar last year during Holy Week and this year during the beginning of April. Both stays were for 5 nights. It is a great place to stay for those of you looking for something low key, close to the locals, and right on the water!

Both years we stayed in La Concha and love the apartment feel. We get our own kitchen, bathroom, and queen bedroom. The room comes with more things than we need during our stay. Apple TV, flat screen TV, wifi, safe, iron, ironing board, and fully furnished kitchen to name a few. They also supply many things to use during your stay like tennis rackets, beach chairs, coolers, and umbrellas for the off-chance of a sprinkle. This particular room is located upstairs and is quiet and very easy to get to. Perfect place for families to stay.

The location of Coqui del Mar is PERFECT! It is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. It is located on a side street that is very quiet. The area is very safe. Best yet, if you need to get anywhere in San Juan you can get there quickly. Viejo is only about 15 minutes, Condado area is 10 minutes, Bacardi around 20 minutes. Times less if you want to take the highway.

The room is clean and well maintained. Nyoda has been great both years making sure we have everything we need.

I definitely recommend Coqui del Mar and we will definitely be returning again!!!

This was our 2nd year staying at Coqui Del Mar. This year though we rented El Sol and absolutely loved it. El Sol is spacious with 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have a bathroom with shower stall attached and the third bathroom is at the end of the hall, spacious and has a big steam shower with lots of shower heads. The kitchen was good size and stocked with all the supplies you need. We grocery shopped at Super Max down the street and found the prices and selection to be very good. The enclosed front porch in El Sol was fantastic. The hanging chair was so comfortable. The unit comes equipped with coolers, floats, boogie boards etc. It's the most private of all the units as you enter from the street and don't have to go into the main gate where the rest of the apartments are. As always, Neil and Noyda were great! El Sol is definitely our favorite unit, we can't wait to go back. Be sure to visit Inca chicken, Rosalia's, Kasalta and B de Burro. Great food at all. If your on the beach around noontime you may be in luck and see the empanada lady walking the beach selling chicken or beef empanadas. Get some, they are delicious !!! So many great things to see and do in PR. Coqui Del Mar is in a great spot, great price, great hosts. You can't go wrong with this choice.

My husband I & just returned from a 9 day stay in Puerto Rico - all spent at Coqui del Mar. Our room, El Pescado was clean & comfortable. We were able to make our own breakfast & lunch (we're kinda thrifty like that!) and enjoyed the many restaurants within a 5 min drive of the guest house. Noyda & Neal were great. We had one little hiccup when we first arrived and it was figured out in about 5 minutes! The hot tub was nice. We enjoyed meeting other guests in the evenings while we took a soak. Overall, a wonderful trip, wonderful accomodations and wonderful hosts! Thanks, Noyda & Neal!!

Room Tip: El Pescado has a bedroom for 2 and 2 fold out futons to sleep up to 4 more....great for kiddos!!

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
