Coral Princess Hotel
Ranked #13 of 47 Hotels in San Juan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 February 2011

We would stay at the Corral Princess again and would recommend it to anybody. We had two stays in San Juan and after our first stay at the Corral Princess we cancelled our other reservation and stayed with them for the second stopover. The staff are extremely helpfull and friendly. The hotel is only a short walk to the beach but offer a pool for customer use if they don't want to get sand in their shoes. We had a later flight the day we left and stored our baggage for us, let us use the facilities for the afternoon and had a bathroom (with shower) available for our use before we left. It's like a home away from home.

Great location: A nice swimmable beach is only a couple of blocks away and we walked into Old San Juan. There was a Walgreens around the corner and lots of restaurants. It took about an hour but was a nice walk (should only do it in the daytime). The staff at the Colal Princess were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was a bit better than a typical continental. Nice Coffees and juices were available for free 24/7. Another nice touch was that the water and soda in the fridge in the room were only $1 which was very reasonable. The pool is small and not used much but nice for a refreshing dip. The hot tub was quite popular and the guests were friendly. The room was small and basic but had everything we needed. We took the bus back from the main bus terminal of Old San Juan that stopped very close to the hotel. It was mostly tourists who got on the bus. much cheaper than a cab.

I did my homework before choosing to vacation with my wife at the Coral Princess. I am happy to say the good reviews the Coral Princess has received on Trip Advisor are merited. We only found a few minor things to pick at:
- Housekeeping was stingy with resupplying the facial and bath soap, but the front desk got us more when we asked
- The bathtub was one of those vinyl-cushioned units, and the vinyl had cracked in spots
- Our room's window looked out on the dumpster (we kept the curtains drawn)
- We didn't find out about the rooftop jacuzzi until the day we checked out -- DANG!

On total our stay was very pleasant. Having breakfast in the courtyard was especially nice. The bed was comfortable. The room was simple but modern and clean. The in-room mini-bar was even reasonably priced!

The beach, shopping and restaurants were a short walk away. Buses to downtown stopped nearby, and taxis were everywhere. Both buses and taxis were clean, cheap and reliable. There's no need to rent a car unless you are going out of town.

On total, a very good value. We would stay at the Coral Princess again, and we would recommend it to anyone except those who want a beachfront hotel or lavish accommodations.

Next time we might splurge and try one of the three penthouse rooms...

We stayed at the Coral Princess after our 7 day cruise. We droped our luggage off and headed off for a short walk to shops and restaurants. When we came back to check in they had taken our luggage to our room. The pool was nice and the sun deck was wonderful. The little chocolate treat when we checked in was also nice. Wished we could have stayed for the breakfast but had an early flight. Next time we will stay on our first night before cruise. Thank you Pat from Kansas City

I stayed at the Coral Princess Hotel only one night but tried to enjoy some of what they had to offer. I probably stayed in one of their smaller rooms and found it somewhat confining after staying in another hotel with a balcony. There are many places to sit and relax at the Coral Princess and I did take advantage of their hot tub on the roof. They also supply beer($2), wine($25), soda and water($1) in the room refrigerator for a reasonable price.
They are a couple of blocks from the beach and there are many restaurants and other hotels, some with casinos in the vicinity. The staff was helpful and friendly.

We stayed for three nights, as my husband had business and we wanted to do some sightseeing in Puerto Rico. The Coral Princess was a perfect choice for our stay. Room was comfortable and clean with free Internet service. Breakfast was a nicely presented expanded continental buffet. Coffee and juice were available in the lounge around the clock. We did not use the pool, but it looked very inviting on a hot afternoon. The only suggestion for hosts would be to expand the free parking. There were a few spaces in front of the hotel, and if they were full, we were instructed to find on street parking or pay for a local lot. Location was great for walking through the neighborhood to good restaurants, and not too far from Old San Juan (walkable or short taxi ride).

I can't say enough about the great staff at the Coral Princess! From the welcome when we arrived to the good-bye at our departure, the staff was fantastic. One evening the diamond fell out of my ring, into the sink and down the drain. At 10 PM the hotel maintenance man was called and he came within 10 minutes, took apart the pipes, and found my diamond! The rooms are on the small side but they are very clean ! The location is wonderful, close to a great public beach, many restaurants, and casinos. The morning breakfast was filling and the availability of juice and coffee at any time was appreciated! The rooftop deck and hot tub were a relaxing way to end the day. I would not hesitate to recommend the Coral Princess to any of my friends!
