“better than the options”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

This review is for the hotel by the airport. It is directly behind the Marriot.
I paid $75 bucks a night, the room was okay, everything rather dated but clean and functional. Coffee maker, basic amenities provided, spacious room and bath. The tiki bar is nice and the food there was pretty good. This hotel is basically two old buildings which used to be officers quarters at an old air force base. A/c worked fine. I will probably stay here again because the option is to pay $125 per night at the Marriot. There are no other places to stay nearby except La Cima, which had poor reviews (I did not visit there).

Horrible experience, since check-in, room condition, people drinking and talking loud all over the place, children running and knocking doors, "mosquitos" all over the room very dangerous if you never been in the Caribbean. We stay there for one hour, I request a refund at front desk and went to Holiday Inn, half hour from there at Mayaguez.

There is El Faro Suites by the Aguadilla Airport and there is El Faro Parador by the main road about 15 minutes from the suites one. In the rest of my review I will refer to them as the suites and the parador

The suites is simply horrible, the parador is lovely. We were suppose to stay at the suites for 3 nights and stayed 1 night (because there was nothing else available). We moved to the parador for the other 2 nights.

The rooms at the suites are old and the worst part is that it is dirty and musty.we did not even check the rest of the facilities. We were showed 2 different rooms and they both were simply awful.

The parador has an open and airy lobby that is rustic and welcoming. Some of the rooms have not been renovated but they are clean and in much better condition than the suites. They have a newer bldg were the rooms have been renovated and are lovely. It is located in a more convenient area with access to restaurant, hospital, church, beach and not far from the mall and other attractions. The staff was very helpful an accommodating and they all speak english very well.

I hope this review is helpful and informative. Not sure how anyone could give the El Faro Suites a good review.

We stayed there with a group of co-workers during a weekend. We found the staff very friendly. Very clean room and bathroom. Rustic wood furniture at the lobby and room too, so beautiful. And the beds are comfortable. I found that the coffee maker's canter was missing. I went to the front desk, and in less than 15 mins I had a new one. They play yard, basketball court, and plenty of green areas. And they have two pools! Small pool is coooold, big pool is warmer. I did not try their restaurant's food, but I guess it should be good, because the restaurant was full. Really I can not say anything bad about the hotel or the staff. In my opinion, they deserve the Five!
