So ok, this is a Bed and Breakfast not a glamorous hotel with a casino. So don't book it if that is what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a cozy off the beaten path, feels like you are at your great aunts who lives in Puerto Rico, then this is the place for you. We stayed 2 nights before a cruise and one after. Our 1st room was #14, had a small but full kitchen and we loved our sitting area just outside our door. Even when the Canadians invaded it while waiting for their room. (Hi there Brothers, Sisters and Friend, if you are reading this :) The room was a nice size, and could sleep up to 4 we had 3 Adults. It also had a sitting and closet area. The last night we had room #12 OMGoodness, it was huge. It had a full kitchen, breakfast bar and stools (3) a hall way, large bedroom with a sitting area and full closet not to mention a full bathroom with tub and shower. Some of the rooms are said to be small, but not either of these. There are bikes, boogie boards and towels you can borrow, or just relax in the hammocks. It is gated and locked for security, but I never felt unsafe. We did walk to the grocery store a few blocks away, I wouldn't do it after dark though. It was a crazy walk. The blocks are not like here, and some roads are closed off with gates, so be sure to ask directions, or be ready for an adventure. All in all it was a great stay, I gave 5 stars, but I want you to know they are on island time and it is not perfect but it was perfect for us. And to top it off... Kudos to Issac the over night desk clerk, who when Ramon the taxi driver blew us off and was a no show at 3:30am (We booked him a week prior) Popped up and drove us to the airport. He got all of Ramon's fare plus tip plus more tip. Take that Ramon LOL (PS) Issac tried to give back all but $10, but it was worth the extra just to be on our way. So if you are looking for a nice relaxing place to stay on the beach (Across the street) with friendly people looking to please you, albeit on island time, this is the place for you. I would book it again if ever I get the chance to visit San Juan PR again. Oops, almost forgot, the breakfast was pretty good too. one day french toast with all the other stuff and one day pancakes. Set up so you are looking out at the beach. And both rooms had a safe.
