Friendly Staff, Clean, Good Food, Clean and Nice Pool, quiet and relaxing place. Nice for families. We love the peace in this place. Close to town, Parguera, Cabo Rojo, Bio Bay Tours, Snorkeling, JUST PERFECT
During my visits to Guanica, Puerto Rico, I try to visit this eatery. I love their food however the wait is always extremely long. I am not sure why this is so as each time I visit, the eatery is not full and most times only two-three tables are occupied. I believe more people would patronize this restaurant if the wait was not so long. The waiter on hand during our visits (different ones) are all friendly and courteous.
Refrigerator, microwave, tv, radio in room. Breakfast is not free as advertised. Quiet and quaint. Solid construction even in the latest earthquakes epicenter. Restaurant has good food, not very economic. Pool seemed nice, the staff is helpful, room was clean bit beware of slippery bathtub. Well located, view of bay. Close to town.
The day of our arrival we received a phone call to ask where we were. The caller only spoke Spanish and I only speak English with very limited Spanish. So after she repeated my name several times and asked where we were she hung up. I was confused - was there a problem with the reservation? I don't know. When we arrived at Parador Guanica 1929 we were greeted by someone who didn't speak English. Let me say that this is not a problem. I am on your Island and Spanish is spoken. So there was again a communication problem. We completed the registration and was told where our room was. This is the worst lodging that we have ever stayed in. We opened the door to an overwhelming smell of chemicals and mold. The room was dirty and we were afraid to sleep in the bed. We asked if we could change rooms and I guess that there were no other rooms available although the parking lot was virtually empty. We left the door open to get some of the smell out of the room. The dining room was awful. I would not eat there. Especially if the room was any indication of what was to come. Nothing touched the floor in the room. We wore shoes the entire time and our luggage was up off the floor. We actually stayed outside by the pool until we couldn't stand it any more and went back up to the room. We were even provided with our own can of Raid. There were not enough electrical outlets and the A/C was so loud we couldn't sleep nor did we ever figure out how to use it. We also had to wear wrist bands and we were not allowed to take them off. The reason for this was? The windows are so thin that we heard noise from the road all night long. I don't know how they have gotten so many good reviews. From the negative reviews that I have read they are all accurate. The back side of the Parador is in shambles, dirty and unkempt. The "beach" is littered with garbage and debris. I realize that there were Hurricanes recently but this is a disaster. I also understand the owners explanation for the building being built in 1929 by the Americans.... However, there is such a thing as maintenance, cleanliness, customer service and treating your guests with respect.…
The building and its architecture were just amazing. Pool was nice and clean. However, the room had smell of mold and it was not tidy. And what about the kitched, in four weeks time in Puerto Rico we had not had so poor dishes served. Warming up frozen veggies with dry piece of meat was below all standards. Go elsewhere and enjoy!
