Stayed here for 5 nights. The room was old and was badly in need of updating but it was clean which is more important than modern to our family. The staff were very friendly and as helpful as they could be. We were told when we booked the room that we were getting a $100 USD gift card but upon cashing it in, we were informed it was only $50. That was a big hit for us as we were counting on that extra $50 for meals. It's a shame that it's not all inclusive as that would have made it so much better.
Watch for Happy Hour for drinks by the pool. And watch for the Iguanas by the pool as well. They do like to swim! Which is a nice treat if you are ok sharing the pool with a reptile (we were!)
The food was amazing and the cushioned seats outside were an awesome touch! Yes, as other reviews stated, you could hear the planes but it got so that I didn't even notice them anymore. A cab into Old San Juan is about $21 one way and worth every penny - if you get the chance to go.
We felt very safe and walked to Walgreens and local restaurants at night with no issues.
I would recommend this hotel but just know that you aren't staying at an updated modern hotel. :)
