The GOOD: First of all if its base on location this is the place. Far away from the weekend night and mainly noisy traffic from the Isla Verde Ave. and across one of the nicest stretch of beach in all area. Staff was very friendly and the nightlife in the roof terrace during the weekend is excellent. The view from the Ocean looking rooms is incredible worth every single penny.
The BAD : All the furniture across the hotel was torn apart on corners, nicked, scratch or had white specks of paint on them. ;that happens when most of your furniture is white with contrasting dark woods. The Food was awful. Everything tasted as if it had been frozen rock solid all week long and then defrosted on a microwave. Don't order the 3 cheese shrimp and crab dip basically melted Velveeta with tiny pieces of unknown seafood in it; and at $18 dollars is just stealing your money. Also keep your glasses from the free cocktail hour 5pm to 6pm and bring your own alcohol. At $11 dollars per mix drink $14 if you like Mojitos; by your third you could have bought the whole bottle and mixers at one of the nearby supermarkets or liquor store. Also a check in time of 4pm is absurd when your flight gets in at 11am and you just want to enjoy the beach.
I would stay again... after knowing how much another couple spent the night at the Hotel San Juan basically 5 min. walking distance from the Water and Beach Club... but the staff needs to take better care of the furniture.
