Great hotel for kids. We have a 13/14 yr old. boy/girl. They loved the pool and hot-tub. They even used the cold water in the splash playground to make the hot-tub feel even hotter. It's also a very short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto Rico. All the staff were very courteous and helpful. Being close to the airport makes it convenient and it's a perfect starting point for all your travels on the island, because the highway runs right behind it. You can jump on immediately and head west toward Old San Juan and the caves and observatories on the west side, or get on a few blocks down the local road to go east to the rainforest and popular snorkeling/scuba/marine adventures in the east. The rooms were adequate, though my double bed was rather soft. Rooms had a refrigerator which was perfect with hungry teenage kids But we didn't come to PR to sit in a hotel room. We left mid morning each day and returned late at night. If you want a luxury hotel room to sit in all day, go somewhere else. And parking your rental car is $10 per day at the hotel. But the freedom it gives you to explore the island on your own timetable is worth every penny. And have a real Puerto Rican meal at the "Home Bar" in the lobby. The owner greeted us personally at our table and took our picture. The meal was superb.
