The staff really corteous and they go out of their way to please you. The rooms are very cozy and quiet, the only sound are the waves splashing behind the hotel. Even the restaurant was close during our stay, it looks spanking clean. There is an ATM nearby the hotel, which I found the last day of the stay. Located in Jobos Beach, surfing meca for all of you surfing buffs. Many, many thanks to Denise, our Fronk Desk attendant.

Average hotel with simple rooms that are not too expensive. The panoramic terrasse has a great view over the ocean. Some rooms have a backdoor that can access this terasse.

The a/c was a bit noisy.

Wifi avaiable only in the lobby (very annoying).

No direct access to the beach, but there's a lovely calm spot just 500 meters from there with a clear blue water.

Firstly, we’d like to thank you for letting us know about your experience. Although we strive to provide great service, amazing food and an excellent stay for lodgers, sometimes our basket is a few sandwiches short of a picnic and a second-rate review (deservedly) emerges. Please accept our apologies and know that we are implementing changes at all levels so that, the next time you visit, you’ll notice we are greatly improved. Please come back soon!

Once more, please accept our apologies.

For the place and comparing other places to stay Ocean Front is a great deal in the Isabela area..the restaurant is among the best in the area, rooms area clean and simple, prefect for the beach. One thing is the are a bit difficult to find over the phone..

My boyfriend has been to PR a number of times and has stayed at this hotel before, so he knew what to expect. We both surf and do not really care about a fancy room with a view or anything like that since the only time we intend to spend in the room is to sleep and shower. The location is perfect if you want to check the surf at Jobos literally by lifting your head off the pillow in the morning. It's also a short drive to a number of other spots on this area of the island. Our room was very small but did have a balcony (which we never used since our boards took up all the space on that side of the room and we couldn't open the door). Beware, there are NO amenities here. Nothing in the shower, no hair dryer, no ice/vending, nothing. Luckily, I was ok being really low maintenance in my appearance on this trip since we spent all of our time at the beach and in the water and everywhere you go is so casual that I just didn't care. We never ate at the restaurant, so I can't speak to that (no breakfast and they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays fyi). We arrived on a Friday evening and the ocean deck bar was going off. We were exhausted from a long day of travel so decided to grab a drink there.....turned out to be a pretty crazy, party atmosphere and that one drink quickly multiplied; it was a fun night. If it's not the weekend though, do not expect anything to be going on anywhere. Overall, this place was fine for us and our needs, but we are pretty low maintenance (and on a budget). If you require the nicer things in life, I would probably look elsewhere.

The food was just adequate, good by Puerto Rico standards but the view is spectacular. We were there for Valentine's dinner so the staff was attentive, faster than island time standard. I had the Mahi and my husband had the steak. Both were fine, the potato soup was tasteless and the chocolate cake was dry but that is normal for the resturants we have found in the area. After dinner, we sat at the bar watching the waves break on the rocks from the bar. That was great.
