Coral Princess Hotel
Ranked #13 of 47 Hotels in San Juan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2010

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.

Our recent stay at Coral Princess was perfect ! Our room was clean, comfortable and had personal touches that made you feel you were home and not in a large overpriced hotel. The outside breakfast sitting area was quaint and the food excellant.

The staff is so friendly and helpful with anything you need, and stores any luggage until your flight home for you. Lots to do within walking distance (the beach, shopping, restaurants,parks and even Casino's if you want.

We highly recommend choosing this quaint hotel for you stay while in San Juan.

OK, so it is slightly smarter in appearance than a cheap budget hotel but don't be fooled by this. We had a small basic room with a small bed, noisy air conditioning and a poorly maintained bathroom. The room was very noisy at times with people slamming doors and generally moving around - soundproofing is poor. This was spposed to be a Superior Room so I would hate to have seen a Standard one. Breakfast was disappointing and we saw some staff being very rude to others. There are some nice pots of plants in the walkways to the outside rooms but they seemed to attract biting insects. However, our biggest complaint was of being charged an extra $13.64 a day in addition to stated taxes and fees. Despite three requests for hotel to explain this charge, they have declined to provide the reason. My advice is stay away.

This was our first stay at the Coral Princess. Styed 2 nights after our Cruise ended. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice and clean. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly.

Very nice area. Felt safe walking at night. Close to bars, restaurants, casinos. Wendy’s is around the corner. This will be the slowest Wendy’s you ever go to – but hey, I was on vacation so what did I care.

A taxi to just about anywhere is $15-$20. However if you are patient you can take the bus for $0.75. A taxi is very easy to find. The front desk staff is more than helpful in calling one for you.

Make sure you find the 3rd floor area – great sitting area, hot tub on roof. Pool is on the lower level. Both very clean. They close early, probably due to the rooms being so close to them.

Breakfast wasn’t much – but it was free.

When we go back to San Juan we will stay at the Coral Princess Hotel. It has a nice bed and breakfast feel to it.

We stayed at the Coral Princess Inn in October. The Inn is a small B&B with three levels, a pool and a hot tub. The Inn is four blocks away from the ocean and the main street where the restaurants and stores are located. We had a small room on the first floor overlooking the small pool. The breakfast consisted of fruit, boiled eggs, several kinds of breads and rolls, and sliced meat. All fresh. There was a make your own coffee and cappuccino machine. We found the Front Desk Team (Palmira and Nicole) to be very helpful with information about restaurants and attractions, and very friendly. We liked the evening treats delivered to the room like small fruit platters and cookies. We were there when a fuel storage facility exploded on the island and smoke could be seen for miles. The manager, Emmy, sent a letter to every guest explaining the situation, and keeping us informed. Do not hesistate to book your next stay at The Coral Princess Inn!

My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this hotel while looking for a place to stay in San Juan. We decided to pop in and inquire about rates and availability. Abraham was extremely helpful in accommodating our last minute reservation. They had a lovely room for under $150. There was a mini-bar too. After check-in we immediately paid a visit to the rooftop hot tub. Lovely! The free continental breakfast in the morning is included as well. There's also a drop off of strawberries and crackers on the night prior to checkout. That's a nice touch as well. The hotel is about a block away from everything including the beach. The staff was very helpful and I would definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in the Condado area!
