We ate next door (Waikiki) the day prior and after.

Overall the view us fantastic if you can be seated right by the window. However the food next door is much better but also a few $ more.

Both are good but Waikiki has a better quality food.

We stumbled upon Hacienda Don Jose while searching for an inexpensive breakfast. Only $17 later (for two), a lovely view of the ocean, and full bellies we were happy we did! We returned for dinner a few days later. Don't let the "hole in the wall" appearance deter you. The service is excellent and the food even better. And you just can't beat the prices.

Based on other reviews we stopped here for breakfast one morning. We were able to sit next to the open windows overlooking the ocean. The view and the breeze were spectacular. My husband had the breakfast burrito and I had an omelet which was delicious as served, and even better when I added some salsa.

We came back for lunch another day and had enjoyed some Puerto Rican specialties. Staff helped us pick these out and they did not disappoint. They do have fabulous mojitos here too!!

One thing to be aware of is that both times we were there, several days apart, their credit card connection was not working and thus we needed to pay cash.

Nice place, tasty food, nice staff - BUT, THEY DON'T TAKE CREDIT CARDS! We didn't not know this in advance and had to run back to our hotel to get a debit card - WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS. We didn't see any signs talking about it either. If we'd of know, we would likely not have gone there. It's just CHEEP of these folks, who are smack in the middle of a resort area, not have the ability to take a credit card. Shame on them, its 2015, get with the program!

Walking by and seeing empty tables at front while restuarant next door looks packed...and overpriced...however the door greeter at Hacienda waved at us with a smile and began telling us the menu...Puerto Rican and Mexican food....not sold until he said "we have ocean view" and yes they did...Dining became a unique and engaging experience for whole family!!! The service was the best and very pleasant. We order Rum Beaches and pitcher sangria and both paellas....I liked both very much but the meat paella was delicious. The back area felt like an authentic quaint Latin tapas room with open windows framing the crashing sea. It was amazing to watch the waves. At end of meal we got to feed the fish with tortillas. The only con was that they do not take visa so we had to use their atm for cash. I would return and I highly recommend. Hope you get a widow table too!
