My partner and I just spent 5 nights at La Teraza and thoroughly enjoyed it. We wanted to get a taste of old SJ culture and history and were willing to forgo glitz and glam for charm and character, without sacrificing comfort. La T. Hit the mark. Our room was on the first floor, half of an actual 2 bed apt. We had the half with the kitchen. The other half was empty some of the nights. We were hardly aware of when it was occupied, so can't speak to the lack of soundproofing mentioned in another review. The bedroom and bath did not have windows, but the kitchen had a small window that sunlight streamed through. So, yes, it was on the dark side, which would ordinarily bother me, but the warmth and charm of the place and the managers, Joe and Devon, made up for it.
Breakfast was brought to our apt each morning. ....Fresh bread, fruit, ham, a sweet or two, etc...quite good and much more than we wanted, so we asked them to bring us less food, after our first breakfast.
Devon greeted us with great ideas and tips of things to do and see and was very helpful in our arranging our activities.She was delightful and thoughtful. she and joe really make the place hum.
Recommendations for improvement?....the water in the shower was hot, but I like really hot showers, so a little hotter would be better.
All in all , I thought staying at la teraza was a great way to get to know Puerto Rico. We went to the beach twice, once we took a taxi to ocean park and returned via local bus to see what that was like...it was a snap and fun to see how some locals get around. The other day we had rented a car, with Devon,s help, and stopped at the beach after touring el junque.
