Awesome beachfront!!

Posted Feb 22, 2015
This was out second trip to this hotel. We really enjoy the location once you navigate the streets of San Juan. It is in a gated community that has one access route most of the time. The restaurant is very good. Lunch is more reasonably priced than dinner, but you do pay a bit more for the oceanfront atmosphere. Possibly the best hamburger I have ever had!!

Disapointing

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: Price- compared to other hotels available. Was on the beach.
Cons: Beds, updates, hot water, rinsing station, sound proof walls, lower price meals & give a little extra like a lettuce or bread! Shuttle to Old San Jua
Location: Nothing to do nearby. It is right on the beach. You need to take a cab to Old San Juan which cost about $20 each way.
We were pleased about somethings and disapointed about others. The worst about the hotel was no hot water. None. It said to wait a little while, but it never turned even warm. It is right on the beach, however when you come back from the beach there isn't anywhere to rinse the sand off. The walls are paper thin. We could hear staff until late night/into the morning. I was woke up by staff laughing really loud in the lobby and we were down at the end of the hall. The restaurant is expensive, food was great, but not for the price. I had a swordfish for $30. The meal consisted of the piece of fish which was very good and about 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes. Thats all it was- no salad or bread or vegetables. It was supposed to come with lentils, but it was potatoes instead. The staff was very accomadating with our luggage before and after checkout. Also very willing to call cabs for us. The bed and futon were not very comfortable. The bathroom needed some updates.There wasn't free coffee or tea.

Overpriced and underwhelming

Posted Jan 26, 2015
This room was almost $300.00 a night and not worth the $. Do yourself a favor and pick other accommodations in ocean park that are much nicer and priced more appropriately.

Niet best.....

Posted Jan 5, 2015
We hebben 8 nachten doorgebracht in dit hotel en eigenlijk was er iedere dag wel iets wat niet klopte. Je zou denken dat het personeel je wat beter in de gaten houdt als er al 3 keer iets mis is gegaan, maar nee - niet bij Hosteria del Mar. Kapotte wc, kamer niet schoongemaakt, geen toiletpapier, kapotte airco (na 3 dagen wel vervangen!), onjuiste nota..... De locatie is top en je kan er lekker eten, maar een aanrader? Nee!

Unforgetable Weekend at Hosteria del Mar

Posted Oct 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was wonderful to stay at this place the view from the balcony was amazing! The colors were so beautiful and the temperature was incredible. The beach right in front of the hotel is slowly coming back, we were able to enjoy the beach just to the side and had a great time! Thanks

Beach front extreme!

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: Beach front
Cons: As good as it gets.
Location: Walk everywhere and discover places. Don't complain.
First day we were there we arrived early, check in was at 3pm and we had to kill 3 hours. Manny kept us well cocktailed hahaha. 1 hour later Gladys got us in the room. Mateo was a superb bartender, very accommodating. The place is not a big resort is a very cozy place small place. Not a place for kids, but more for couples that will be coming out of the room only for air wink wink. The beach is great at only a few steps. No taxi needed, we walked everywhere! Sure you get sweaty in the heat but that's part of the fun. Best 7 days spent, I can't wait to return. J and C from Portland and Venezuela

Nice hotel on private beach.

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Nice hotel except there was no hair dryer or hot water at night or first thing in the morning because it is heated by solar power. Only stayed 1 night.
