This establishment did not register on my GPS. I therefore had to find my way to it by conventional means like maps, road signs and enquiry. It turned out that it is only a short distance away from PR2, but the only sign is placed in such a way that it can only be seen by those who come from the San Juan direction. We came from Ponce and therefore missed it. Enquiry got as there eventually.
The first impression of the hotel is very good. The lobby is stylishly modern, registration
was friendly and efficient. The room was not generous, but adequate. It showed its age by wiring along the baseboard, but it was clean, and so was the bathroom. The room did not have drapes shutting out the sunlight, which proved more of a problem for viewing the screen of my laptop than sleeping in in the morning.
Meals in the restaurant were OK, but no better. I would not come here just to eat.
I would not come here for the free internet access either. Although the hotel devotes a whole page of its website in applause of its technology, the actual experience is one of mediocrity. Molasses has been seen to run faster than the hotel's data stream. Forget about a video clip to finish before you have to check out.
Our room looked out onto the pool system. If we were forty years younger and had brought our kids, we would have had a grand time. As it was, we just enjoyed the view. Unfortunately, that also included a view of PR2 a little further on, which meant that the room was not all that quiet, even with the single-paned windows closed.
And I am sure the air conditioning in this hotel was set to near 0°C to make us Canucks feel at home. Good thing I brought a sweater!
