Our room at Coqui del Mar was clean, spacious and comfortable. Our host, Noyda, was helpful, attentive and friendly. She is very knowledgable about the area and helped us with tour arrangements and restaurant recommendations. A beautiful municipal beach is just a block away. It's easy walking distance to restaurants and bus stops. If you are unfamiliar with the San Juan bus system, you should know that there is no schedule, you just go to the bus stop and hope for the best. The C-53 line is closest to the Coqui del Mar (about 2 blocks), but the A-5 (four short blocks) runs more frequently. Both go to Old San Juan. Note that the drivers don't make change, so you need 75 cents in coins to get on. Be sure to dine at Inca Chicken, a short walk away. It's inexpensive and informal, but offers a delicious blend of Puerto Rican and Peruvian food.
- 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
