This place was great for the price!! Pros: - Very nice staff, everyone is very attentive and helpful. It was great to deal with genuine staff. - right one the beach. not a private beach, which i personally enjoyed more. It is a laid back beach (i didn't go middle of the day on the weekends, however) but was great for people watching and interaction when not in the water. plenty of sand for sun, lots of trees for shade. - the bed was COMFORTABLE. medium firmness. we wanted to take it home. - ipod radio in the room, decent cable on TV and wifi - business center, two computers and a printer - i found free street parking on tartak every night we stayed (5 nights) for our rental - we never took advantage of it, but free breakfast and happy hour! - nice toiletries (h20) - close to airport, rental companies and 15 min from old san juan Cons - the shower is pretty annoying, there is only a half glass door so the other half where you step out gets drenched. just ask for extra towels. -despite having modern decor there could be updates, like paint touch ups -it can be loud, but i heard no music in the hallways - i didn't care for the blue lights, you can just turn them off - parking is either $15 or very difficult if you happen to be unable to score a spot on tartak, but like i said - i always found one, and that's free. - tourist area Overall, i would stay here again. it's not a 5 star hotel but a much better deal than something like a holiday in or radisson. i loved walking less than a minute to the beach, and you get beach service from the hotel until about 5. we had a cheaper room but were still very comfortable. this is a hotel for singles or young couples, and for those who want to either sit on the beach or get out around P.R. i didn't get to experience the roof / pool / bar or restaurant because they were remodeling. During construction they still offer breakfast and a free happy hour in the restaurant downstairs, which has a really nice atmosphere.
