“LOVED IT!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

I stayed overnight with some friends. Enjoyed the friendly staff and the superb evening and sunrise. We wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were perfect, right in front of the ocean and far away from the pool to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Ocean side, as far away from the pool as possible.

I spend a weekend in Villa Parguera, and had a great time. The staff is friendly especially the girls at the front desk. The grounds are beautiful and the location is perfect because is walking distance to everything. The rooms are dated but very clean, they need to be updated. Overall a great vacation.

Stayed December 2013

We just stayed two nights at the Villa Parguera. This parador which by comparison to other paradors in Puerto Rico, is amazing. Most of the time you see the pictures and expect less, but in this case the pictures are exactly what you will experience. Quiet, resort like relaxation. The staff are outstanding, the view from room 120-123 on the ground floor are the best. You walk right out to lovely chaise lounges, chairs and tropical breezes. Though the walls are paper thin as other reviewers have commented, the guest are for the most part " non-party" types. We unscrewed our light bulb outside the door and closed the bathroom door to minimize mosquitos, which are ubiquitous in PR, and that worked fine. Though others complained about the food, we are foodies and found the breakfast buffet on Saturday morning great: scrambled eggs with bacon/ chorizo, pancakes, oatmeal, juice, fresh fruit, coffee for $7.50 fantastic. We kayaked with Ismael from Alili Tours in the morning and the staff at Villa let us check out ahead of time but have full use of the parking lot and premises allowing us to take a leisurely dip in the pool, shower, and clean up in the pool room and head north refreshed and relaxed. For $100 a night you just can't beat this, and the dinner at Moon and Stars up the street is amazing! Simply paradise!

Room Tip: Rooms 120-122 are on the ground floor have private patios with tables and open to grounds with relax...

This town is great and the hotel is well priced for what you get. The biggest problem with this place is that the bar across the street has a live band that plays until 2am (we were there from Thurs-Sun) and it's so loud that you can hear it in the room. If you're a deep sleeper or plan on staying out until 2, this is no problem at all. Otherwise, I'd steer clear for a more peaceful place.

Room Tip: If you stay here, get a room without a back-facing door.

Located on the water in the little town La Parguera is the family-oriented Parador Villa Parguera. A “parador” in Puerto Rico is a privately owned hotel/inn sanctioned by a government program that assures quality of accommodations, service, location, cuisine. The property’s waterfront double rooms cost half (or less) of comparable rooms on the beach in more populated areas. Parking is free. The people who manage the operation, which is now celebrating its 40th year, are always friendly. My wife and I have been visiting here for a dozen of those years.

Villa Parguera sits directly on calm waters that are sheltered from the wild Caribbean by an offshore reef and by a string of inshore cayos. There is no beach in this area. Its dock allows you to walk out among the mangroves and watch the many boats pass by or observe some very colorful tropical fish in the shallows. You might even see the occasional tarpon swim by. The beautiful garden area with manicured grass and flowers of many hues along with a large swimming pool invite you to relax on the hotel’s grounds.

Because this parador is situated within the town, off-property excursions are a very short walk away. There are so many restaurants of many cuisines, it would be impossible to try them all during your stay. A local bakery serves an excellent breakfast. Next door to it, a tapas bar is a great gathering place and has excellent food. The restaurant at the marina serves fresh fish that is just about the best anywhere in PR and at a surprisingly low price. This year there is a new central plaza that has live music most nights and a coffee shop kiosk.

Boats are available for rent to spend a day cruising the many mangrove cayos or finding one to claim as your own. Snorkeling is excellent in the clear waters surrounding the mangrove roots. You can also get a water taxi to take you out for the day and pick you up whenever you choose. An evening trip out to the bioluminescent bay is a must. And of course, the scuba diving is beyond compare along La Parguera’s deep wall.

Villa Parguera allows you to either relax at the water’s edge in a tropical setting, journey out to the inshore attractions or cruise offshore for diving or fishing. You can do all of this without ever having to get into your car. And, the accommodations and food do not come with the high prices of other resort venues. Villa Parguera is very convenient and a great value.

Room Tip: Room 204 is a second-floor room with a balcony overlooking the water.

We stayed at this place this past weekend and it was fabulous. The rooms are not fancy at all but if you go to Parguera is not for staying in the room; so, the fanciness of the rooms it's not that relevant. My only complaint is that the walls seem to be too thin; so, you can hear practically anything happening in the rooms next to yours. But in general, people were very quiet.
They have Direct TV with old TV sets, with plenty of channels to choose from.
The room had a balcony looking towards a very nice looking courtyard.
The breakfast buffet which was included in our package, but was pretty good. What you would normally get at a Comfort Inn or a La Quinta in the states.
We had the Saturday dinner show included and it's very funny but it's in Spanish; so, if you are not Spanish speaker, you might get bored though I have to say that they have a very nice band playing there, and if you like to dance latin music, you'll enjoy it a lot. The food at the dinner show is very basic but it works.
This is not a five star resort but you''l get five star enjoyment. That's why we are looking forward to go back soon.

Room Tip: Rent a boat and spend the day at one of the keys that are a couple of miles away from the shore.

Slow service and mediocre food. The view is the best around though. Good to come down and grab a drink with friends and family. It isn't really a surprise that the place isn't that crowded, so if your looking to get away for some peace and quiet this might be for you.
