My partner and I spent 5 days in PR staying at the AGH as a get-a-way from the winter doldrums of the main land. Situated in a PR community that may startle you at first wondering about your choice of lodging due to the graffiti and abandoned properties that abounds. However, this all melts away very quickly as you settle in at the guest house.
Our room (#6) had us scratching our heads a bit as we had at our disposal a dorm sized frig, small microwave, toaster, & coffee maker along with a few dishes and an assortment of eating utensils. But, other than the bathroom sink, there was no other place to wash the utensils after use. I think it would have been better off to do away with the dishes & utensils and let the guest get paper plates and plastic ware down the street. A great asset to the AGH were the restaurants within walking distance that catered to "real" and traditional foods of PR.
Our hosts were great and very accommodating. The were eager to answer questions and assist in every way possible. With the beach within easy walking distance, the AGH provides beach chairs, umbrella, toys etc. as available and as needed. Just help yourself and return them when finished. Evenings spent using the hot tub was wonderful and relaxing after playing tourist.
Although the guesthouse provides a great tropical experience, don't go looking for the over the top decorations. The décor was functional and utilitarian. Nothing more. My main complaint was the wussy shower that was in our bathroom. A new shower head with increased water pressure would have made the room perfect for us. That being said, overall this was a very good experience.
