We loved the beach view from our balcony, atmosphere and beautiful location of the hotel. The breakfast each morning was delicious and abundant. It was easy to take a beach stroll, and the hotel desk staff provided us with a map and information as to where to go, depending on what kind of beach area we wanted. The beach directly in front of the hotel is surfer friendly and decent for a stroll, but not for swimmers, at least during the red-flag conditions at our time there. Walking westward on the beach however, provides great views, some more shallow and calm wading areas, and even some coral and sea life sightings! We would definitely stay again - it is an affordable place to stay that is located a reasonable distance from El Yunque Rainforest, San Juan sights, and the ferry to Culebra island for a day trip.
The neighborhood was not the classiest, but we felt safe enough to walk the beach at night. We appreciated the gated parking and locked entry to the hotel as an extra assurance.
