Parador El Faro
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Aguadilla
Reviewed March 18, 2012

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago. It was clean, and the staff was friendly. There is a pleasant rustic feeling to the room design,terracotta tile floors, etc. The hotel structure is welcoming for a family with kids or for any group, as it is low rise, and the rooms all lead to the courtyard which has a decent restaurant, and a pool. There is an excellent beach nearby -- As I recall it was crashboat beach? WHatever the case, this beach was one of the nicest in all of Puerto Rico, and there is a shuttle from the hotel to the beach if you don't want to drive. I never tried the pool and don't remember if it was clean; why would you use a pool when you have beaches? From Aguadilla, it was a short trip to the caves, or Rincon, or Cabo Rojo. If you want to see San Juan, you can drive there, but it is a hike, and the Rain Forest, El Junque, is so out of the way that we did not attempt it. The only problem with this hotel is finding it in the first place, as it is very poorly marked. We had to ask the locals to figure it out.

DO NOT EVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL. THIS HAS BEEN THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!
(El Faro Hotel in Aguadilla, P.R.)
No hot water all 4 days, even after changing ALL of our rooms. And then on the last day in the new room I was locked in!!! The FREAKN door lock broke! My brother had to kick the damn door in. Un FREAKN real I tell you!!!! And by the way the phone had no dial tone!!! Oh and as for the window there was no way i was going to fit through! If this had been a true emergency like a fire or heart attack we, meaning my 15yr. daughter and 14yr. niece would have no made it out alive.

Puerto Rico Accommodation is expensive so the price for this hotel service is very good.
The room was nice and the breakfast area very tropical and comfortable in front of the pool. I've been on several occasions and the service has always been good but not extremely diligent. The beach is not at front but near and also is not far from the Aguadillas's airport.

For tourists I strongly sugest that you rent a car; because taxis are very slow and expensive.

Room Tip: If you don't like the noise please don't ask for a rooms in the first floor or in the front...

This review is for the hotel by the airport. It is directly behind the Marriot.
I paid $75 bucks a night, the room was okay, everything rather dated but clean and functional. Coffee maker, basic amenities provided, spacious room and bath. The tiki bar is nice and the food there was pretty good. This hotel is basically two old buildings which used to be officers quarters at an old air force base. A/c worked fine. I will probably stay here again because the option is to pay $125 per night at the Marriot. There are no other places to stay nearby except La Cima, which had poor reviews (I did not visit there).

Horrible experience, since check-in, room condition, people drinking and talking loud all over the place, children running and knocking doors, "mosquitos" all over the room very dangerous if you never been in the Caribbean. We stay there for one hour, I request a refund at front desk and went to Holiday Inn, half hour from there at Mayaguez.

There is El Faro Suites by the Aguadilla Airport and there is El Faro Parador by the main road about 15 minutes from the suites one. In the rest of my review I will refer to them as the suites and the parador

The suites is simply horrible, the parador is lovely. We were suppose to stay at the suites for 3 nights and stayed 1 night (because there was nothing else available). We moved to the parador for the other 2 nights.

The rooms at the suites are old and the worst part is that it is dirty and musty.we did not even check the rest of the facilities. We were showed 2 different rooms and they both were simply awful.

The parador has an open and airy lobby that is rustic and welcoming. Some of the rooms have not been renovated but they are clean and in much better condition than the suites. They have a newer bldg were the rooms have been renovated and are lovely. It is located in a more convenient area with access to restaurant, hospital, church, beach and not far from the mall and other attractions. The staff was very helpful an accommodating and they all speak english very well.

I hope this review is helpful and informative. Not sure how anyone could give the El Faro Suites a good review.
