4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

We just got back from a 6 night stay at mont caribe. We stayed in room 2, which was a 2 bed 2 bath unit. My only issue was that there was not an actual kitchen, just a fridge and a microwave. Fernando, who is an amazing host, was wonderful to us. For what it is, it is worth the stay. We are not particular, dont need housekeeping daily. We wanted to be in a SAFE neighborhood, that was local.We walked to the beach every day and walked to the bus to old san juan. We would stay here again, in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much fernando

Room Tip: just a note. Rosita, the housekeeper, speaks NO english. So it would be helpful to know some spanish...

First I have to say that the owner Fernando is Top Class with being accommodating.

Ocean Park is ideal for your stay because of its proximity to the airport (7-10 minutes drive) and Condado, Old San Juan and other nearby attractions.
I truly felt like home staying there a month and I know other guests will stay the same.
Walgreens and other establishments like supermarket and fast foods joints are all in walking distance.

Will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Puerto Rico.

SUMMARY
Jan 2013 - 3 night stay for 3 adults
LOCATION
Excellent location in San Juan. Within walking distace to beaches, nightlife (Club/Bar Mango - Owner Hannibal will take good care of you), transportation, restaurants, cafes (Kasalata - Obama went here), grocery stores, everything you need.
PROPERTY
Two storey guesthouse. Units were clean and came with a three piece washroom, clean towels and linens, TV, AC, refrigerator, microwave, dining table.
MANAGER
Super kind and friendly FERNANDO made our stay in San Juan unforgettable. When I needed to pick up a rental car, he drove me to the rental car agency, when we we were looking for a place to enjoy the nightlife, he escorted us there, when we needed a place to stay on when every other place in the city was booked because of the San Se festival, he took us in. With FERNANDO at your service, you are in good hands.

Fernando is the reason this place is so good. He instantly makes you feel comfortable and is happy to share his knowledge of Puerto Rio and San Juan. The rooms are basic but perfectly comfortable, hot water, decent beds, and all at a fair price.

I came with a friend to PR and we stayed at Mont Caribe for 4 nights. It's a fantastic guesthouse in an excellent location and with great service. It was exactly what we hoped for! Fernando, the manager is the best! He'll make sure you're comfortable and give you a quick tour of the area. And he was always available. If there's anything you don't like, let him know and he'll fix it. We stayed in villa #1 and #6. Both were always clean and very comfy. In terms of the location: The guesthouse is 5 minutes or less walking from the beach!! (it doesn't get better than this). It's also about 20 minutes by bus to old San Juan ($.75 bus ride compared to $15 for a cab) And the bus stop is about a block away from the guesthouse. The Condado area which has great shops and restaurants and a couple other beaches is about 15 minutes walking. There's also a Walgreens right behind the guesthouse which is great if you forget stuff at home or want to pick up snacks for the beach etc. There are LOTS of great restaurants all within walking distance and all the food was fantastic. The famous Kasalta bakery/ restaurant is on the same block and the food there is well priced and excellent. In terms of location, price and service, it doesn't get better than Mont Caribe and we will definitely be staying here again!

Room Tip: Just be sure to ask to see the room and ask to change it if you don't like the layout or whateve...

My wife and I traveled from Germany and rented a studio apartment for 10 days, 9 nights at MontCaribe and had a excellent vacation. Good price for the time frame for about 54.00 dollars per day, with private parking include. Prior to this 10 days in Mont Caribe we spend 5 days in San Juan Beach Hotel , a so call 4 star Hotel,...but after the trip I can easily tranfers those star to Mont Caribe Guesthouse. I have to mention the nearby facilities surrounding the area...... just a walking distance from the laundry, Walgreens 24 hours, McDonald, KFC, within 3 minutes walk,,...I almost forgot to mention the beach also,... I'm highly appreciate Mr. Fernando and his staff for the wonderful vacation.
