The Luquillo Sunrise surpassed our expectations, especially when compared to the other places we stayed at around Puerto Rico that were similarly priced. The motel-style hotel was clean, the public computer was brand new and updated, the breakfast included pancakes, bacon, breads and fruits plus drinks. The amazingly friendly and informative front desk help gave us a three-page written summary of where everything was in town, and the conference room had menus and commentary from years of previous guests that helped us choose restaurants and travel excursion companies. Unbelievably, they also lend guests beach chairs and beach towels so you don't have to bring your own!! There was secure parking for the car, which could be key in the area. They let you print boarding passes for free, too. This is not a sterile Sheraton but it was quite clean and nice, with a balcony facing the ocean in our third-floor room. We chatted with other guests at a long shared table during breakfast.
The B7B is located on a surf beach in Luquillo, one of the most beautiful beaches on the north side of PR. There's a surf shop a block away. Walking down the successive beaches you encounter a surf beach out front, then a reef (good to snorkel, they explained, but you must be a strong swimmer), then a semi-calm bay beach, then a very calm public beach with full facilities. On the day we were there it was clean and full of families. You are near enough to Fajardo that you can drive for 30 minutes to the area where all the kayak tours leave in the evening to tour the bioluminescent bay, which I would definitely recommend as an outing. The entry to El Yunque forest is quite close, also. You could easily be based in Luquillo and do El Yunque.
Within Luquillo is a famous strip of beachside kiosk restaurants that open both to a street and to the beach. We ate at a burger kiosk because our son was getting tired of mofungos and other local foods. The menus are semi-gourmet and highly varied among the kiosks. You could walk there from the B&B but you might want to drive. I understand that the whole area is very busy on weekends although it was quite quiet a lunchtime on a weekday.
My one complaint would be that the AC blew on my head while we slept. I suppose I could have turned it down. There's also a ceiling fan.
Highly recommended if you like small, well-located, friendly places.
