Hi ,i always think things to consider about staying PR are these .Whilst those apartments / hotels on the flat area ,around Puerto Nova area of Puerto Rico they carry a bigger price than those further up Puerto Ricos hillsides .If you do stay up in one of the cheaper options uphill you have to consider Taxi costs .This is due to the fact many places you could with a degree of difficulty walk down but imo most certainly not back up to . 3 children 2 adults if this is the case would also mean 2 taxis .Beach ,port ,marian ,main shopping areas ,most restaurants and bars are on the flat area,so it could be a nightly and daily cost which though cheap soon mounts up .......sometimes even cheap doesnt work out when considering figures and their total !

Just over and only slightly up a walkable hill or lots of steps ,near to the main Commercial Shopping Centre are these .I have stayed in them ,but some years back so do read more recent reviews .Puerto Feliz, Casablanco hotel,Cala Dor ,Cala Nova .

As said those on the flat to have a look at ...Marina Suites ,Peurto Nova Apts and Marasol......

3/4 of the way uphill Puerto Azul

right at the top ...Eden Apts

Hope others come along and give their views and recommendations

must agree...the cost vs the actual cost must be considered.......

the riu is popular as its ai and the real cost is more clear....

the morasol is a good allround choice....no steps!

Don't think cheap and good come into the same sentence!

When our children were small we always went self catering as opposed to a hotel. Nowadays though there is the all inclusive option and that would be my choice with three children. Riu Vistamar would probably be too expensive BUT is good!! With three under elevens you probably aren't looking to venture far so one of the cheaper all inclusives up the hill might suit you better.

I agree with Fussy, look at Eden, Colina Mar or Altamar or Nido del Aguila. All very close to the Europa Centre and a childrens play park and mini golf.
