Wifi didn't work Cable didn't work (yes better things to do than watch tv but when night rolls around with 2 kids you want to have something to wind...

As travel agents for a group of friends cruising together, we had several in the group, including ourselves who needed one or more hotel nights preceding and following the cruise. One of our number was given the name of this hotel as the place to stay, and so I booked a bunch of us here. The rooms varied wildly in...

My sister and I stayed her for 5 nights during the San Sebastian Festival 2015. We chose this hotel because it was small and quaint and figured with a bar/restaurant on site a staggering trip back to the room would be easy. The rooms were basic and provided enough room for our overfilled baggage. The best part of the rooms...

My husband and I stayed here only one night before a cruise. We would stay again! The patio area for the restaurant is very nice. Lovely view to enjoy while eating our complimentary continental breakfast ! The check in was super easy and everyone we came in contact with was very nice. The room we had did have a view...

Strange thing about this place...I'd like to give it a lower rating but I just loved it so much. All the little nuances that would normally annoy me and the lack of simple conveniences that you would have at a larger hotel chain didn't bother me at all!! It was an authentic island experience that I will remember for years...

A very nice little Inn tucked away at the end of a street on a point of land facing out on the Ocean. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The bar and dining area are open air and on the water with a large outdoor area that has some sun protection. The Ceviche and the Avocado with Shrimp Salad...

I loved this place and will rate it 5 stars. However, this place isn't for everyone. If you are looking for luxury and a party you wont like it. Yes, there is an abandoned building next door with homeless people living in it, but that never affected my stay. Getting there is a little sketchy, it is down a couple...

A Trip Advisor review brought us to this delightful small hotel for a night prior to boarding our cruise. It is very close to the airport ($13 cab ride) and right on the water. It is a modest hotel but the room was clean and the mattress was VERY comfortable. the staff was responsive and very polite. A great view...

We had a groupon for this hotel & I'm so glad we did. If you want a nice alternative to a large resort this is it. The rooms were adequate and the staff very attentive. The location was spectacular as its literally steps from the beach and a short walk/drive from restaurants and larger hotels and bars. The best part...
