“A Terrific Gateway to Northeast Puerto Rico”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

We found this place to be exactly as represented on their web site and by Trip Advisor members. It was right across from a beach and you could walk the beach all the way down to Luquillo Beach. It is a 30 minute walk by street or about 45 minutes to an hour if you walk the beach. As you walk the beach, it changes from a surfing type beach to a much calmer area for good swimming.
The staff at the hotel, especially Sherry and Demian were extremely helpful in making reservations for local attractions (a snorkeling trip and an English language tour of a beautiful area outside of Fajardo with stops at the rock formations, the lighthouse and a wonderful walk through wet lands).
What I liked best about this Inn was their high degree of organization. When we checked in Sherry gave us map that showed where the local restaurants were, and even pointed out one that we should stay away from (because they charged more than the menu indicated). In their lounge, adjacent to their open air dining room, they had menus for all of the restautants in the area, arranged in a logical and easily accessible manner. They also kept a notebook with comments from other guests about the restaurants.
The breakfast served always included some type of hot meal (when we were there we had pancakes, French toast, breakfast pizza, and some tropical scrambled eggs). The breakfast were more than ample. Also, there were beach towels, and beach chairs that are yours for the day by just asking for them.
The room was well equipped, with good air conditioning, and a wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean. I liked having a sink outside of the toilet/shower area. There was plenty of storage including a large dresser that would be locked. There was also a desk, two nightstands and a few chairs. My only complaint was with the bed. The mattress is not on a box spring and it was kind of lumpy and hard. Still, I would not hesitate going back to The Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn.

The Coqui room is seperate from the rest of the Inn. There is a high rise aparment building 25' from the Coqui room and across the street is a school. From 6am to 10pm be prepared to listen to loud music, kids screaming and loud trucks. Not relaxing!! The room itself was clean and spacious but as stated above you would be better served staying in the main hotel as it is farther from the apartments and school.

We wanted something other than the big resort thing. Located on the beach and close to the rain forest. This fit the bill perfectly. Our room was not ocean side, but rather in a seperate building in the back. We had basically a small suite. Lovely! King side bed, seperate sitting area, fridge. All very clean and cute. Breakfast was super on a terrace overlooking the ocean. Private parking included. Good recommendations. The staff was really good. Would go there again!

We recently spent a night at the Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn with our three childrend (8, 6 and 16 months). We Flew in to San Juan and selected Luquillo because of its close proximity to El Yunque (the rainforest), which was our destination the next day. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful the entire time. We stayed in the "green room", which is an experiment with low environmental impact living, including solar lighting and AC and rainwater toilets and showers. This is a very nice suite that is actually a separate house located behind the hotel. It was clean, bright, comfortable and quiet, and a cool experience for us and our kids. There is a nice yard between the green room and the hotel with pretty palms and our boys enjoyed the opportunity to run and play there (and made a few friends over the wall separating the hotel from the neighboring apartment). Breakfast is great and served by very nice staff on the second floor terrace, which is a stunning setting. We very much enjoyed our brief stay there and would definitely stay there again. We stayed at the Fajardo Inn once before, and it was okay, but I would chose Luquillo Sunrise.

Oh - one other thing - dinner! I was disappointed we could not get in to Pasta y Pueblo, the little restaurant right around the corner that gets rave reviews here on tripadvisor (we got there at 6 and they couldn't fit us in - business is good!). We walked through town to Rincon, a local, very Puerto Rico restaurant. Food was good, the establishment's owner was very nice. For those not used to Puerto Rico, they may find the walk a little unsettling. Just remember that poor doesn't mean dangerous - Luquillo has its share of poverty but is perfectly safe. - Chris

My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights and look forward to our return. This was the perfect place for our winter getaway. The hotel is on a quiet street right across from the ocean. The facility, staff and service is outstanding. Maria, Sheila, Damian and the owners, Marsha and Gary, were extremely helpful and ensured that we had a great visit. Our room was simple, clean and comfortable. Breakfast (included) is a continental breakfast with a daily hot breakfast special. We had breakfast pizza, scrambled eggs with potatoes, French toast and our favorite, the breakfast burrito. Breakfast is served on the terrace with a beautiful view of the ocean. They also have a conference room with tons of information about the area: maps, tours and activities, restaurant menus, and 2 notebooks filled with handwritten restaurant and tour reviews. The hotel provides beach towels and chairs. The staff is happy to help with planning your activities and making reservations if needed.

Luquillo is a small town about 40 minutes east of San Juan, right off of Route 3. The hotel is easy to get to thanks to the directions on their website and if you have a GPS, I would recommend using their GPS coordinates instead of the street address. Luquillo was a great location as we were not far from San Juan, 10 minutes from El Yunque rainforest and close to Fajardo where there is a lot to do (tours, ferries, etc.).

You must frequent the local restaurants and the famous kioskos. We did not have one bad meal the entire time. Isamar Bakery (Rio Grande), El Rincon del Sabor, La Estacion (Fajardo), El Jefe Burger, La Parilla (both kioskos) and Luquillo’s famous Pasta y Pueblo, which is right around the corner from the hotel. You must also check out Chachi’s and try their fantastic corn ice cream.

My favorite of the Luquillo beaches is the public beach (balenario). It is a 45 minute walk from the hotel along the coast or a 5 minute drive. If you drive, there is a $5 entrance fee. It is open from 9AM-5PM, closed on Mondays. The beach is stunning and the ocean is much calmer there than the other Luquillo beaches, making it ideal for swimming. There is a bath house with bathrooms and showers that you can use all day for a $1 fee. The beach is also right next to the kioskos so we would walk over for lunch and then head back to the beach.

I highly recommend doing one of the bioluminescent bay tours, which is super cool. There are only 4 bio bays in the world, with 3 being in Puerto Rico. We did an electric boat tour conducted by a lovely older gentleman, Captain Suarez. We also spent part of a day exploring El Yunque, which is a fascinating place.

I’m so glad we stayed here! You won’t find better value for the facility, staff, service and location anywhere else in Puerto Rico.

We enjoyed our stay, I wanted to stay at resort and my partner wanted to try Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn. She was right.....We saved a ton of money and had a great time. Room 34 is the best in the place (top floor big balocony) so keep that in mind if you stay here. The shower/toilet area a little tight and the TV stand gets in the way a little when walking by it. Besides that it's clean and comfortable. Oh the breakfast....to die for and it's included! The only other nice touch that would have been nice is coffee,tea etc avaialble 24/7, but there is a nice coffee place in the square.

Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn was a truely great hotel. This is a small hotel with about 17 rooms right on the beach. There is nothing overly fancy about this hotel so if you are looking for resort-style lodging this is not the place for you. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with a nice balcony. The ocean is 2 steps from the front gate and small beach is a 2-block walk. The best part about this hotel is the staff. They are incredibly friendly and are happy to provide suggestions on tours, restaurants and anything else you could imagine (they even provide hand-drawn maps with landmarks!). If you are looking to relax and go off the beaten path a little, this is a great place to stay!
