“Loved Corona del Mar”
Reviewed 10 January 2010

We stayed at Corona del Mar for the New Years holiday. The room was nice and clean and they give you two free huge jugs of water in your fridge which is a plus for hot days. The staff was very nice and we enjoyed the free rum punch. The property is right on the beach and they have a few chairs and a dock right outside their door for relaxing. Corona del Mar is about a mile from San Pedro town center which made it quieter and more peaceful than some other hotels we saw, but still made it super accessible to everything you need with just a short walk. We organized a snorkeling tour from the tour company associated with the hotel and paid only $35 US for everything (other places were offering $50). The tour was great too! I highly recommend Corona del Mar!

We stayed in this hotel for 12 days. The locations is very nice, right on the ocean. However the best part of the hotel is their staff and their service. We can't wait to go back n stay with them.

Any one who stays at Corona del Mar will tell you about the staff, they are one of the hotel's major assets! Not only do they make you feel like family, they will answer any question or give you any assistance that you might needl

When you check in you are immediately offered a delicious rum punch "free". (By the way, this punch is available to you all day long!) We always stay in one of the apartments with a kitchen, living/dining room, and separate bedroom. The beach is right outside our door and the view of the ocean is beautiful.

We like to stay close to the downtown area, but not too close. Corona del Mar meets this requirement since it is a short walk down the beach to town. A wonderful restaurant is across the street (George's Kitchen), the resort next door provides more food and a bar, plus music and dancing if you are in the mood.

Oh, I forgot, each morning a continental breakfast is provided free of charge and fresh drinking water is brought to your room each day.

The apartment we usually rent has a 1960's feel and I love it. We have been in one of the upstairs rooms and they have a much more modern feel, if that is your thing. They are well decorated with lots of room to move around. The best thing is the french doors that open to the balcony and the great view of the palm trees and the beautiful water and reef.

We picked Corona Del Mar because of the wonderful reviews. It is true that the service and location is great, but the hotel needs work. The bed was creaky and uncomfortable, the room had ants, and we had no hot water. Also, the hotel next door, Coconuts, played loud music from 8pm till midnight. If the staff wasn't so friendly, we would have moved to another hotel.

Imagine... You arrive from the plane or the boat and are checking in for your room. You find there a very kind & deticated team and while filling your check in form, you are offered a free rum punch.

Pitcure this... You receive your key, get in your room, go on the balcony and have a glance at the paradise view of the sea and palm tree. Third floor was great.

Need something... You need to book a diving tour, a plane ticket, a restaurant, a taxi, no problem as you always will have a member of the hotel team that will help you to do so.

Wireless geeks... You cannot loose connection to the web, well you will have Wifi access from the lobby couches or terrasse to toe in your laptop or iphone.

The hotel is just a little south of downtown and a 10 minute walk on the beach from there.

Your back is so sour, you have an arm problem, ... then just cross the street and have an heeling chinese massage from the well reknown Master Lee.

You need a snack, ... then again, just cross the street and you have George's kitchen: shrimp enchiladas, fish sandwich, water melon fresh juice, ...

Oh! did I tell you... the free rum punch is there all day long. A bottle of purified water is always waiting for you in the fridge of your room.

Thanks to Mar, Leroi, Gilbert, Frank et al for the wonderful time.

I booked this place based on TripAdvisor, but was not impressed. Not sure how this place is #3 at present in the rankings. Its a family run hotel that is quite no frills. So, if you get a deal, like we did, it might be OK. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

The bed was super-creaky, though OK to sleep on. I was afraid to move about on the bed much though as the neighbors might wake up (it was that loud).

The tub would not drain properly. This may be a problem with the poor plumbing of the island - who knows.

The breakfast was really no frills and the advertised breakfast is not always available. Only coffee - no tea or juice. The eggs would show up around 9am some days.

The TV was old and fuzzy.

Quite a ways from town (15 mins. in the hot sun) if you plan on walking.

The hotel next door has nightly bands that are really loud and annoying.

Otherwise, the place was fine. The people are really nice - especially Frank. You can rent bikes from him much cheaper than elsewhere. They have free WiFi. The beach is literally at your doorstep.

We stayed here in May of 2008 and could not have been happier. The staff was alwas extremely helpful and went out of there way to greet you any time you passed by. We stayed on the second floor. our room had a living/dining area, a kitchen, and a bedroom with two beds. The staff brought in purified water every day to put in our fridge. The breakfast that consisted of fresh fruit, boiled eggs, really good cinamon toast, or plain toast, coffee, and juice was actually very good and we did not mind eating the same thing every day. We also liked the rum punch they had every day. We would definetly stay here again.
