We were at the Coral Princess two years ago and returned this year. Obviously we liked it. This time I reserved a room with a king size bed and they upgraded us to a “penthouse” room. It was roomy and had a large enough for two whirl pool. Over all we were as pleased as we were then, with the area, the maintenance of the hotel and the value. Last time we were surprised that there was no fresh fruit for the continental breakfast. This remains true, which is hard to understand since the island has plenty of fresh fruit! They also serve baked goods from Costco and, while they are good, there are lots of great bakeries in Puerto Rico and it would be nice to get something more local.
This year we had the pleasure of meeting Emmy, the manager. She was great, full of information, enthusiasm and suggestions to make our trip more enjoyable. Unfortunately, unlike last time, the other staff was not as accommodating. They always did what was requested but rarely offered eye contact and any helpful suggestions. They did not even know bus routes. Fortunately we were pretty independent because of the information we did get the last time.
Still, the room offers a good value and is a nice alternative to a mega hotel or a tiny B&B.
