Rated by American Airlines & Expedia 5 star. Stayed 8days. Two rooms 6 persons. Room door jams so hard must ram to open & close in one of the rooms. Bugs on floor & walls. Both rooms. Window broken covered by cardboard & tape tape. No hot water ever. One local TV channel only available transmitting to watch. Coffee maker in room without cups and coffee present in glandular form, needed to be sealed cup portions. Also no sugar or stirrers in room. Reported 3 times numerous days to front desk. No action taken ever. Finally they charged $156 a night. So what was that about a 5 star rating?

First of all I’d like to start off with letting everyone know that this is not the Ritz Carlton. If you’re looking for that kind of hotel then you need to drastically increase your budget. Secondly, Americans are spoiled so do NOT expect luxuries here like the ones you have at home. Puerto Rico is basic. I can’t believe some of the reviews that I have read on here for this hotel. I didn’t read them until after I booked, which was a mistake. I shouldn’t have read them at all. Some complained about leaves in the pool, no refrigerator, no microwave.....ridiculous things. It’s $100/night. That is AFFORDABLE! Go to Burger King, KFC.....or the restaurants around Parque La Guancha, it’s not too far up the road. It does look “run down” in places, definitely behind it, but PR still hasn’t fully recovered from Hurricane Maria. People should be ashamed for leaving such horrible reviews. Let me add, the staff is great! We loved the pool also. It has nice areas to sit, too. If you aren’t picky and are looking for a decent place to stay for an affordable price, come here. And btw, the rooms are clean!

Read the reviews before booking this place. We didn’t and regret it. This place is dirty, smells, needs update. Pictures in the website are not the real ones, believe me. The allow loud music late at night. No microwave in the room, the TV only has three channels. We paid $135/night and it’s not worth it. Embarrassing for the PR tourists.
