“Don't go to that hotel!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Listen everybody. Don't waste your money in that hotel. I stayed in that hotel yesterday and there were no water in the bathroom. . I saw two roaches in the room. The air conditioner do not worked. The pigeons were taking a shower at the pool. At 11:00 PM the hotel closes the front doors! Can you believe that? To be honest that hotel DO NOT REPRESENT PUERTO RICO. It's real bad because San German is a historic and beautiful town.

Room Tip: Do not go to that hotel.

I still can't believe this nasty, unattended and always empty place is still 'operating'. And I say 'operating' because only cockroaches, mold, mildew and all kinds of insects have been making this place theirs'. It is not uncommon to go by and never seen a client inside or outside. The owners or administrators simply have no apparent idea of the historical reach place it is located for which they could have taken huge advantages decades ago - or at any moment in the present - but they just seem not to care at all, or just have the property always mostly abandoned with an 'employee' or who knows who. It leaves a lot to desire: the lack of service representatives, the lack of clean areas and bedrooms, the same look over the years. It looks perfect for a ghost hunting TV program such as the ones from SyFy but definitely not a place where any apparent living person have been in DECADES. I'm a local. Been there, done that. I can tell this is the biggest shame of the locals: the only 'Parador' or 'Hotel' is as nasty and abandoned as it can be. I would never recommend it to anyone. It does not represents Puerto Rico nor San Germán locals. It is totally nasty. You can go there and confirm every single thing I declare here by yourself.

I have to plan an unexpected trip to Puerto Rico this past weekend and unfortunately the only place available was the Parador Oasis. Being native to the Island I thought it was a good idea to patronize the business. Making story short they took whole amount out of my account immediately (although they advertised the opposite, will be taken at time of check-out) and I have ended up not staying there at ALL and money was not refundable. As soon as I started going up the steps to find the room, I knew immediately, I was not staying, carpeting with water and soil stains to say the least. Smell of dampness all around. Room sort of give you the appearance of been clean but when you take a close look ...it was deceiving, feel for the cleaning crew trying! Hope my donation is put to use to get the place clean. Old and Historic is not equal to run down and neglect! Oh, forgot the unfriendly counter person!

Room Tip: Don't stay there!

This hotel is not worth the amount of money it charges. It has been without upgrades for 40 years and that include the beds, carpeting, etc. However, the cleaning staff do their best to have the place looking decent. Other staff members where not very friendly possibly because of the amount of complains they receive. It is a pity because the location is great. If you must stay there, be aware that the rooms in front of the main road are noisy at night, you will need earplugs to be able to sleep.

I am giving the Parador Oasis three stars in recognition of the fact that the hotel is not what it once was, nor what it will (hopefully) one day be again. I had read about the Hotel Parador Oasis and so was not expecting a Marriott experience. What I expected, and found, was a clean room and an attentive staff who went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I fell asleep each night to the soothing sound of the poolside waterfall and upon waking enjoyed a simple, but ample, continental breakfast. The location was perfect for me--right in the center of everything. I had no vehicle, but was able to move around on foot to several wonderful restaurants, all of the sightseeing points, and InterAmerican University. A heads up to those of you who may be coming to San German to study at InterAmerican University: The Hotel Parador may soon be accommodating students during the semester. That would definitely be an option worth checking into.

I am glad that much needed renovations are planned, but hope that they will be done with care to preserve the charm and historical and architectural integrity of the building. I also hope that the renovations will not place the hotel out of reach for the budget minded traveller.

So, no chocolates on your pillow but, given the price, an entirely adequate place to use as a base while exploring the beautiful town of San German. Many thanks to all who made my stay pleasant and memorable.

I would have stay longer if it were not for work appointments far away from the area. It is cozy and comfortable. I am glad I was able to relax and have a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. I.have heard about the renovations and met the new resident manager, which was always attentive and very cordial. The service was and, for THAT $, it was a great deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a mansion suite on the first floor or on the second floor, the ones with a pool view.

San German is a beautiful city that has a unique historic eclectic hotel called Hotel Parador Oasis on the main street called Luna Street. The entrance is extremely welcoming and cozy. Our group first met with the new Resident Manager which was very pleasant and attentive. We felt right at home. The rest of the personnel gave us excellent service and in the middle of renovations made our stay as comfortable and uniquely special as no one else could have done. We definitely recommend this Hotel as a getaway from home where you can take advantage of unique attractions, personal need services and business matters if necessary.

Room Tip: Pool site rooms are the best selection if you climb stairs otherwise the mansions.
