We have been to Puerto Rico twice and both times we stayed at the Coqui Del Mar... It is a lovely place to stay steps away from the beach! The management makes you feel like family. The first year we stayed we got there and then so did a tropical storm, Noyda and Neil made sure that we were safe and comfortable. They are very kind, thoughtful, giving people who have a wealth of information. There are near by grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and beautiful historical sites. The area offers plenty of things to do and a beach just steps away if you don't want to do anything! the only thing we recommend it that you get a rental car, it makes travel and adventures totally uncluttered by not having to stick to a bus schedule. We love the Coqui Del Mar and hope you have as great of a trip and stay there as we did!

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in Late December and were very pleased with the accomodations. If you are looking for a large resort hotel with swimming pools and restaurants, then this place is not for you. However, if you are looking for a place a block from the ocean in a neighborhood of homes, within easy walking distance to good restaurants, this is the place. Rooms are not large, but then again, if you are on vacation, who stays in their room. We were a 5 minute walk to the city bus line which was great since we didn't need to rent a car. Our hosts, Neal and Noyda, were wonderful. They were always there when we needed help or directions. I would definitely stay here again.

My friends and I (eight of us) only stayed here for a night, but once we first stepped in the house, we knew we should've stayed longer. It's strategically located near beaches (Ocean Park Beach, Playa Isla Verde etc), restaurants and nightlife spots, while being in a quiet and safe neighborhood. I'd definitely choose this place again the next time I visit Puerto Rico!

This guesthouse is a truly quaint find for us, since it did not have the glitz and touristic feel of Isla Verde nor Condado. Everything about it was cozy and quiet, our room El Mango was right in the backyard full of flowers and plants. We felt like locals and for the 5 days we spent there, felt like we were actually living in San Juan rather than being in a sea of tourists. Our host Noyda was very nice to us and gave us personalized recommendations on restaurants nearby. The location (Punta la maria) was right between the west condado/old san juan and the east isla verde, it is also only 1 block away from the beach. This location gave us easy access to our surroundings, and it is also close to the bus C53 (which runs on the main beachside street all the way to old san juan).
For the price of 70USD per night, it was a great deal for travellers on a budget. Although our room was fairly tight (El Mango is the smallest room available), it was okay for us since we are a couple.
All in all, our experience at Coqui Del Mar was something that we are very happy about and proudly recommended to other people we met throughout our trip!

My mom and I spent three nights at Coqui del Mar before we went on a cruise. I had booked the El Mango unit, but since we had some minor problems with the shower there, Noyda was sweet enough to upgrade us to La Concha for the duration of our stay! The room was excellent, almost like having our own apartment in San Juan. We were did some grocery shopping at a local store, so we were able to cook in the unit's kitchen, which was very convenient. The beach is about a block away, and umbrellas, chairs and even a boogie board were available for us to use! And of course, many thanks to Noyda and Neal, who were amazingly helpful, kind and friendly.

We had just finished snorkeling off Fajardo. Our friendly driver for the day (Peter with ECO Tours) took us to this location. What a great move on his part. It's EXACLTY what we needed. The place had a kitchen, microwave, fridge, tv, celing fan, electronic safe, AC, IPOD dock, WI-FI, PUR water filter, silverware, etc etc. And it was clean. And you can't beat the price! Plus, it's a gated area. The door to your room has an electronic code access - that is kinda neat. I would totally reccommend this quite and clean place to anyone that is staying in this area. Beach is super close (1/2 block away)
If I would of known of this place, would of booked the Nights I was near/close to San Juan - at Coqui del Mar. I would try and keep this place a secret, but I would love other travelers to discover this place and show my appreciation to Neal and Noyda.

We had a great time in Coqui Del Mar, very convenient and takes you away from the hustle and bustle of other hotels. Our hosts were so gracious and very helpful. Rooms are well equipped and the location is accessible to restaurants and the beach. We will come back to this adorable BnB on our next trip to PR.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
If you want to experience Puerto Rico like a local while still having all the conveniences of home, this is your place. We make you feel at home. You have private personal space (all rooms have private kitchens and private bathrooms), while in a beach side neighborhood setting away from the crowded tourist areas. You will experience some of the best Puerto Rico has to offer while living like a local, visiting the restaurants frequently visited by locals (no chain restaurants near us). We are in the Ocean Park beach area of San Juan, in between Old San Juan and the international airport. We are 3 minutes walk to the nearest beach. Ocean Park beach is one of the locals's favoites, and also a preferred spot for kite surfing and windsurfers. We are 5 minutes walk to the tourist bus route (which goes to the casinos and to Old San Juan) and walkable to restaurants and grocery stores. Each of our units have full kitchen, free WiFi, cable TV/DVD, Apple TV, in room safes, and an Ipod player. We strive to provide more than expected, and I think you will find that with us, from the beach chairs, or bicycles to the in room safes, there are never extra charges. One of the best things about us is our live in management, Noyda and Neal, who call Coqui del Mar home and welcome you as if it is your home as well. They are local experts and can help you find a great restaurant, plan a special event, or enjoy a chat. Our courtyard, bar-b-que and jacuzzi are great for meeting other guests. If you are looking for personal service and a unique, eco-friendly (we have solar hot water supplemented by electric, ceiling fans supplemented by ACs, and offer recycling), and a clean guest house for a reasonable price, then check us out. We are not a Marriott and offer our own unique sense of quirky and intimate Puerto Rico. Come join us. *Our free parking is on a public street in front of our location. Not difficult to find a spot, but it is not designated parking for our guest house and is open to all. * Airport transportation acknowledges that there is taxi service from the airport. **Free parking is on street parking ... more   less
