We went on a girls trip & stayed. Denise & Jorge were awesome. Jorge, the grounds keeper, was just the best & took such great care of us. The place was beautiful & so was the view. I also loved the local feel of it & it was close to tons of beaches. Only cons were the wifi wasn't good...

I stayed here with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday so we had all 10 rooms to ourselves. We rented through Airbnb so none of us expected a hotel feel, we wanted something more house-like and that is what we received. Overall, the property is well maintained and clean. There is an outdoor kitchen with fridge, gas stove,...

Our family stayed here 1 night after a lovely vacation on Culebra. We choose it because of price and proximity to airport. It is in a poorer area of San Juan, but once in the 'compound' of the hotel, it is very lovely. Sweet clean swimming pool and very clean nice room. The air conditioners were very loud (would have...

We were there for a planned large party. Staff were present. Supplies were adequate. The rooms very clean and pleasant. The party had a live Plena Band. Everything was very nice. However, this lodge is associated with a hidden wonderful fishing resource which is probably little known. I have been to PR almost yearly for 35 years and had no...

**Highlight of the visit**: Firstly as others reviewers have mentioned, this place located in a dingy mostly rural locality. This is where things got really bad for us. We arrived at the property at about 9PM and were greeted with locked gates, 7-9 foot high compound walls and no buzzer/call bell. Also nobody was picking up the phone at the...

The hotel really looks like the picture they show us, BUT: we got lost trying to find the place, the locals don't seem to know there's a hotel there, and when we found the place we were really scared; the neighbourhood doesn't look safe at all and looks like it's one of the poorest ones in San Juan. The rooms...

I have been an avid traveler for the last 20 years and have been to many hotels/motels and this place is really one of a kind. The lodge is located in a ghetto-like neighborhood, i arrived in Loiza (where this lodge is located in) around 6pm, and was misdirected by the GPS multiple times to a nearby Marina. After 1...

Located in one if not the scariest neighborhood of Puerto Rico, avoid this hotel at all cost. We were there for one night with another couple of friends, and we literally had the worst hotel experience in a lifetime. If you are courageous enough to find this place located between inhabited houses, abandoned cars and trash everywhere on the streets,...

I came here with a group for my cousin's wedding. His wife is originally from PR, and we had the entire place booked for the wedding guests. Because of this, we had the entire place to ourselves, so my situation may be unique.... The pros: very clean, beds were very comfortable, pool area/bar was very relaxing, very nice view from...

Grim. That sums it up. There is nothing in Loiza except a walk to Pinones and the raunchy roadside snack shops. After that, its a 30 minute expensive cab ride to San Juan if you can find a cab that can find the lodge. The rooms were small with weak water pressure. The air conditioner sounded like a saw mill...
