The Luquillo Sunrise Inn is a great choice if you’re looking for excellent value and want to be near El Yunque and the eastern parts of the island for kayaking, horseback riding, zip-lining, etc. The beaches around Luquillo are also excellent. However, if you want luxury, pampering and posh surroundings then stick to the high-end resorts. Although the rooms here are very clean and comfortable, this is not a luxury five-star hotel. But if you want a casual laid-back small hotel that is truly footsteps away from the beach, then you’ll likely be very pleased here. The staff is exceptional and very friendly.
The beaches!!! – Luquillo has a variety of beaches. From calm waters good for children to waves great for boarding, Luquillo has miles of beaches in both directions that will please most people. I found the beaches to be clean – but not pristine. Also, on the first day I could walk past a small stream entering the beach just west of the hotel and continue beach walking for miles, but the morning after heavy rain the stream was about knee deep and muddy so I chose not to continue in that direction.
The room was clean and functional. The balcony was great with two chairs and direct views of the beach. We had a mini-fridge and microwave in the deluxe room.
Free and secure parking - they have one spot for each room in a small lot directly in front of the Inn. They give you a remote to open the gate.
Staff is great - friendly and helpful
They provide beach towels and chairs you can carry (or drive) over to the beaches.
Breakfast included in rate. Good continental fare plus a daily "hot" fresh cooked item changing daily (we had egg sandwiches, omellete, and French Toast)
Perhaps the best PRO is the view out the room - directly to the beach just feet away!!! The sound of the crashing waves from the front and the coqui frogs in back is very relaxing at night.
The surrounding neighborhood might be a big turn-off for some people. There are several vacant and run-down homes adjacent to the Inn. Also, at night we found walking around the plaza area to be a bit concerning. We didn’t experience any problems, but it is advisable to not go out alone at night.
The matress was not very good and could be a problem for some people
There are some restaurants within walking distance, but not an abundance. We ate dinner at the El Rincon del Sabor, Boardriders, and Ernestina’s. All are walkable, but returning back at night through the deserted streets around the plaza might be worrisome depending on your sense of security. The kioskos offer other excellent food options and are a short drive away (but not within reasonable walking distance for most).
Road noise might bother light sleepers
No elevators - so think twice if hauling luggage up stairs is a problem for you
In summary, the Luquillo Sunrise Beach Inn is a great value and will be a good choice for many if you go with the proper expectations and understanding of the pros and cons.
