This is a fairly nice hotel with the typical Embassy Suites layout: A bedroom and a small living room with a pull out couch. The interior is a little more dated than other Embassy Suites I have used. The bathroom is small and definitely not up to the brand standard - but how much time will you spend in there when in Puerto Rico? The hotel is a 30 minute drive from San Juan except if travelling during morning or afternoon rush hour when it is more likely to exceed 60 minutes. The staff was very pleasant. Housekeeping was unreliable as far as timing and during our week long stay the room was cleaned at very different times of day. Twice we had to call as they had forgotten all together. Breakfast is predictable but nice and the gentlemen cooking the eggs were superb. On weekends the music (a musician singing along to a computer track) was loud - and perhaps this could be toned down. Parking is in an adjacent garage at a cost of $18 a day. Pools are nice and clean. The beach is public but not crowded. The beach was clean and protected by a seawall and there are some fish when snorkeling. The golf course is closed indefinitely - so don't plan on playing golf. The tennis courts are open during daylight and the surface is a little rough - my wife and I played quite a few times and never saw anyone else play.
We did not enter the casino which is in a separate building and appears fairly small.
The best thing is the daily Happy Hour - free wine, beer, mixed drinks and popcorn - a great way to end each afternoon in paradise!
