“Intimate Parador Hideaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Comfortable room with lovely view from a small balcony of the well manicured grounds, pool and the Caribbean. Loved the waterfall in the pool.
Restaurant served excellent perfectly cooked fish and full buffet breakfast.
Fun to walk around the funky little town. Boat rent and snorkel gear rental just steps away. People everywhere very friendly and helpful. Excellent snorkeling in islands of mangrove trees and short drive to the Salt Flats.

From start to finish the service was friendly including the waiters and front desk clerks, but the room was awful. I stayed in room 225 and as soon as I walk in there was a musty smell from the carpet. I found a hole in the wall the size of my fist, the bath curtain had mold half way up and to get ice you got to go to the restaurant for it. I had a deal for a simple room, but on that condition and the fact I could hear everything from my neighbors, I went to the front desk willing to pay the difference for a better room. I was told that the manager advised the staff to deny that option. So I tried to enjoy my time, but hardly will return unless is an ocean front room and the price is a real bargain. Great service but no marketing skills to get me back.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front rooms only

Villa Parguera is in a great location where the nightlife is. The rooms are average at least the one I stayed in, cleanliness in the room could be better. They're breakfast is the closest to real breakfast: eggs, pancakes, juice and coffee. Beautiful views.

I have been traveling to Parador Villa Parguera since I was a child and have not been back in way too long. My husband and I have never traveled there together so I wanted to take him there to experience the Bioluminescent bay and the parador. Upon our arrival, I felt as if I was taken on a time warp. The hotel is exactly as I remembered it. I love this place. It is so quaint and beautiful to me. My husband who was experiencing it for the first time also fell in love with it. It is such a well taken hotel, you can see the staff constantly cleaning and making sure the common areas are all in great shape. The front desk and dining room staff are all extremely courteous and know how to provide great service. We stayed in room 202 and had a gorgeous view of the gardens and bay. The rooms are simple but it is such a peaceful place the room does not even matter. We had a wonderful visit to Parador Villa Parguera and hope to go back sometime soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2nd floor facing the bay.

The hotel was booked solid for the weekend, but a member of the staff went out of her way to call the party that booked the rooms to see if they needed all of the space in the hotel. They were able to free up one of the best rooms in the hotel and we were able to make our reservations. That kind of service is typical of the people of Puerto Rico, but this was extra service even I didn't expect.

Gardens and common areas are beautiful and well kept. However, rooms are tired and needing detailing. Rooms are good just for crashing at night. Employees are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant looks very good, but there is lots of great local food around at better prices. The hotel has a nice pool. Even though Parguera is an old fishing village and is well known for its bioluminescent bay, there is no beach. People take boats to nearby small keys.

It is such a shame that this place is so run down but in a perfectlocation. The setting is beautiful, but the rooms are dumpy, old fashioned, and sometimes hot. One of the rooms didn't have a working ac, so the girls had to move. The doors don't automatically lock, so make sure you lock it. Saw a spider on the ceiling when we laid down to sleep, yikes! The food in the restaurant was ok, the flan was the best I have ever had and i have had a lot of flan. The pool is nice and being close to the ocean is great, but really, this place is past its prime.
