El Canario by the Lagoon
Ranked #24 of 47 Hotels in San Juan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 May 2017

First, we arrived well before check in as we had disembarked a cruise ship. The person at the front desk could not have been more gracious- offered us access to the breakfast room and gave us beach towels to use. Gorgeous beach is a very short walk from the property. Lovely courtyard with flowers, fruit trees- can take your breakfast out there, which we did. The rooms are not fancy, but clean and have everything we needed, including a small refrigerator and safe. Pleasantly surprised that we had a little deck as well. Different person at the front desk the next morning and just as pleasant. Great value for a lovely stay.

This small hotel is in the heart of condado- walking distance to nice bars and restaurants.

A fresh coat of paint and a re-decor can do magic to this building! It is a great property it just need better attention!

Breakfast was nice and fully stacked at all times! Very friendly staff!

This is our second year to stay before leaving on a cruise. The rooms are simple,.comfortable and clean, bathrooms are small, but you can begin adapting for the cruise ship. Cold breakfast is included with drinks, cereal, fruit, pastries & drinks.. Management accommodating, since we couldn't board ship until 1:00 they let us have room until 12 rather than 11. We love the location in Condado just a block off Ashford Avenue in the heart of restaurants and shops. Good value.

Very clean and the staff is incredibly friendly, answered all my questions and advised me on streets and places to go since it was my 1st time in Puerto Rico. I highly recommend if you need a nice, affordable and safe place to stay. Muchas Gracias por todo El Canario Lagoon.

First, the hotel was nice clean and all we expected. But the staff is what truly makes this hotel a gem. Every staff member we came across was friendly, helpful and made it a joy to stay there. We stayed both before our cruise and after. The breakfast room was clean and pleasant with an outdoor courtyard to enjoy. There was laundry facilities also. We will stay there again!
