My boyfriend lives in San Juan and when I came to visit, we decided to use a Groupon to book 2 nights at Miramar for a relaxing weekend away from his roommates. The Groupon was supposed to be for weekends only, but when we called they didn't have any rooms available for Saturday so they let us book for Sunday and Monday which I thought was really great of them. The staff when we checked in were also friendly. Parking was a bit scarce but we always lucked out and found a spot on the street close to the hotel. There is a movie theater, grocery store, and several restaurants within walking distance.
The room itself was a good size and clean. There was a TV, a microwave, and a refrigerator. We had a room with a king sized bed which was super comfortable, however I wish there were more blankets or a heavier comforter because I got a little cold with the A/C running. I'm sure you can probably ask for more at the front desk. I was also bummed out that the bathtub didn't plug and I was only able to take showers. Their restaurant was closed for renovation so they gave us $5 breakfast vouchers for another restaurant, Los Pinos, less than a minute walk away. The food was good, but there are very few items for under $5 so you may end up paying a little.The hotel's sundeck was a nice surprise. It's a good place to sit and have a few drinks and watch the sun set. There was a good view of the lagoon and part of the city. They also have vending machines, an ice machine, and guest laundry facilities.
There is a card you are supposed to hang on your door if you want maid service (rather than a "Do not disturb.") We didn't hang the card out, but someone came and cleaned the room anyway. Not necessarily a bad thing, I was just a little embarrassed because we had left dirty clothes and half eaten food sitting out. So just be aware that your room may be cleaned even if you don't ask!
Overall, I enjoyed the stay. If you are looking for an island oasis/resort type place, I would not recommend staying here. However, if you want a cheaper place to stay that is still safe, friendly, clean, and comfortable, I think Hotel Miramar is a good choice.
