When Jaqi and I first visited Puerto Rico 6 or 7 years ago we stayed in a hotel that overlooked the Gloria Palace Amadores and we were slightly envious of the "beautiful people" who could afford the luxury of the Gloria Palace Amadores. Over the years we bumped into some of the well heeled residents of this hotel thought it would be nice to someday stay there.
Well this year, on the spur of the moment, we booked the Gloria Palace Amadores on a B&B basis through Falcon. This was not a cheap last minute deal.
Perhaps six or seven years ago this was the place to stay, but not now. The hotel is falling apart! There was trim hanging off the furniture, the balcony was rusted, paint was flaking off the walls in the corridoors, tiles were cracked in the pool areas, the umbrellas were faded and mouldy and the general decor is tired and dated.
It appears that they are now aiming for the all inclusive market - and not the higher end.
Maybe my standards are too high but this hotel is not worthy of a 4 star rating.
They say you should never meet your heroes. Sadly this sums up my experience of the Gloria Palace Amadores. It did not come close to my expectations.
