3 girlfriends and I stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights in September 2007. We got our room for a GREAT DEAL using Priceline! Sept. is "hurricane season" which is probably why our rate was so great(but it only rained for 15 minutes our entire stay). My advice to people is to go during hurricane season!!! It sounds crazy, but to stay at this amazing resort for under $100 a night is probably only going to happen if you go during that time of the year.
-Right on the beach, has great outdoor veranda to eat on. The hammocks are amazing, i slept in one all day!
-Pool area is awesome and big with swim-up bar
-you're RIGHT BY THE AIRPORT so you will hear planes taking off periodically but it's really not that big of a deal...after a while you just kinda of get used to it
-Staff was courteous and helpful
-Our room wasn't too big, wasn't too small and we had a partial ocean view.
-GO TO VIEJO SAN JUAN(OLD SAN JUAN)!!!
-Go to El Yunque Rain Forest!!! And take the trail to the waterfall and then jump in for a really fun swim.
-Go the the Bacardi Factory! It's just a quick ferry ride from Old San Juan.
-**Beware** rent a car, but don't ask locals for directions unless you want to be totally lost!! Also, parking is a bit expensive at the resort so keep that in mind if you want a car.
All in all it was a great stay without any problems or issues. The only thing I wish we had done differently was book a longer trip.
My best friend is getting married next August and I recommended this hotel as a place to stay for their honeymoon.
