I stayed at this property in the first week of March. The hotel is not the most grand considering all the surrounding hotels near by. However it is in a perfect location close to everything. I walked every where and the beach is literally a two minute walk. I was barely in the room so the hotel didn't bother me...

Coral By The Sea is very old. The elevator doesn't meet up even with the floor. The "handicapped" room didn't have a hand held shower, very slick tile floor in the shower. The hotel uses Booking.com for the reservation BUT refuses to honor the rate. When we got there they upcharged $20. Even though I had a print out of...

We had an unplanned last minute stop here after missing a transfer due to the weather in Chicago. This was the only place I could find that had rooms. Hotel is old, about the level of an older Motel 6, but the room was clean and close to the airport, and available. Front desk pleasant Called taxi for us in...

The room was fairly nice with basic things. A little worn out but clean. Wifi worked well on 5th floor. Room had shampoo, soap and towels. Bring ear plugs with you if staying here, airport runway is pretty near and planes taking off make quite a noise. Very easy to get to the hotel from the airport by bus.

This is an old hotel and not very well kept up. The room was fairly clean but looked pretty run down. The parking is not very convenient and is a do it yourself thing in a very small and crowded parking lot. The location is convenient to the Isla Verde, but it is actually in a bit of a questionable...

I went to a trip to Puerto Rico with friends March 2016. We chose the most affordable hotel which was Coral by the Sea. Arriving at the airport, by taxi the hotel was about 10-15 mins away. It is on a street with some other hotels and restaurants. The lobby has a restaurant and diner attached. There are stairs and...

Located in front of a parking lot dubbing as pimp / ho office and transverse from a cockfight ring; prehistoric wi-fi and only in the lobby area; broken lift and no help from staff; no door lock; dirty all over, particularly sheets; noisy; smelly -- AWFUL.

This place is nicely located in the area of Isla Verde. 2 Restaurants at the hotel with great food and Gelato. Also has many restaurants and stores within walking distance. The beach is 2 blocks away. 3.5km from airport. The rooms are quaint and nice. Small bathroom that was nicely designed, clean, and built for 1 at a time use....

When my other half booked this, I read through the different things other people wrote and thought this would be a drag for 2.5 weeks - luckily, I was wrong! We checked in in the middle of the night and although the staff was super nice, they were really not flexible, which has more to do with the booking processes...

Sure, the rooms are a bit dated, but for the price, it's a great nights stay. The location was amazing- close to beaches, restaurants, and the Ritz Carlton resort. Give it a try for a night close to the airport.
