Reviewed 2 March 2017

We arrived late to find the garden courtyard illuminated by candles, cool music playing and a feeling of calm welcome - excellent vibe - the room was fine with a big closet, in-room safe and small fridge - the terrific restaurant was steps from our room, and we enjoyed the continental breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner there - the seafood paella is delicious! We are planning another trip to Puerto Rico that includes a stay at this great place and it can't be soon enough!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room facing the lovely courtyard

Stayed here for 4 nights prior to starting road scholar tour at Hampton inn. Caribbean type vibe, small clean rooms. Enjoyed sitting by water with early am coffee. No pool but cross small street to be at beautiful ocean. Helpful friendly staff. Able to walk along beaches to small restaurants. Get skewers and ice cream from vendors on beach. Very relaxing.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. We had three rooms booked and when we arrived they only had one. The manager made arrangements at another hotel for the night. Obviously, not ideal but they corrected their mistake. The hotel is nice with a great location right on the beach!! Nice restaurant on site overlooking the ocean. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has an amazing location. Not on the beach, but the ocean crashes against the back deck and it is so beautiful. This place reminds me of a beach hotel that you would have stayed at in the 50's. It has some minor problems like keys not fitting the doors and lights not working; however, it is charming and cool!

When you pull up you make think you're at the Norman Bates hotel, but when you enter, you will see a super cool dining area and a room that will make you feel like you went back in time. I loved this Gem because I am a romantic and sometimes I don't like the feel of corporate hotels. Try it for a night or just have dinner on the deck. They are closed Tuesdays- the night we chose to stay there but we had breakfast of bagels and coffee and it was like a dream....

Room Tip: choose the second floor-

The hotel was a good value. The rooms were clean. The continental breakfast was good with an excellent ocean view just feet away. The restaurant and bar staff were very helpful and friendly! I loved the fact that there are beaches within 2 minute walk.
