My husband and two friends stayed here not really knowing what to expect as the reviews were mixed. But I had stayed in Puerto Rico before at the large Marriott resort and casino and wasn't impressed. We paid $140 a night here (which was by far the cheapest considering most places like the El San Juan and Ritz were close to $300). The staff was very nice and accommodating - we took a cab to the grocery store down the street and got things to make lunch and drinks (much cheaper than the bar) and they didn't mind giving us ice, utensils and plates. There isn't much to the hotel other than the bar, but the beach is right next door and there is a place to rent chairs, etc. If you want to lay by the pool on your vacation, obviously this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a cheaper, more relaxing, less bleached out resort feel, we found this to be perfect. The rooms are large (although the water in the showers is not so great) and we definitely didn't get bit by anything! If you're going to splurge, stay at the downtown Hotel Convento, if you want a quick getaway and some good food, stay here!
