The fact that it's old all looks dirty and not maintained. The staff was great but the room was not worth what I paid for it. There was no internet the tv was small the beds were old.

We only stayed here one night after visiting Camuy Caves and Arecibo. It was clean and comfortable with a lovely rooftop restaurant and pool.

You have to harass them to clean the room, people from the restraunt upstairs throw garbage down on you patio, they would lock the front doors on the weekends and the security guard wouldn't be around to open the door, Continental breakfast is a joke. Save yourself the hassle people go elsewhere where you are appreciated

The only thing is that the wall behind the restroom door was broken. And there was a stain in the curtain where the a/c unit was. Other than that the restaurant had good mojitos, but the took forever to bring one appetizer. Bed was comfortable and the hotel has nice halls, pools and lobby. Pool was very cold at 10am. No heater.

A gem of a hotel in the Hatillo/Arecibo area

We recently stayed at the Hotel Rosa del Mar for 4 nights while visiting the Hatillo/Arecibo area. The building itself has a mid-century mixed with modern updates. The front desk staff was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The lounge has a fascinating array of complementary refreshments: Pop-Tarts, Perrier, beer, cheese/crackers, etc. The 4th floor restaurant and pool area is very nice with good views of the ocean, as the hotel is uphill a couple of hundred yards from the ocean itself. The beds are comfortable and the rooms clean. Aside from the restaurant in the hotel, local offerings are limited unless you are willing to drive or you are interested in eating at the neighboring Wendy's, Church's, or Burger King.

Short drive to Rio Camuy caving tours

Great hotel stay for one night. They have a nice happy hour off the lobby with free snacks, sodas, beer and local rum. The room was spacious, appealing in decor and the king size bed was very comfortable. We also visited the restaurant on the 4th floor, which made good Puerto Rican food, but was on par with slow island service. Overall I would highly recommend the hotel, which appears to be a great spot for business conferences / retreats and wouldn't have minded staying longer if we had reason to stay in the area longer.

Pros: Include a complete breakfast until 10am. Also have a restaurant available in the same building. Excellent food and service. Big parking and free WIFI.
Cons: Maybe on new years eve make an activity to those guess that prefer to stay at the hotel because dont have any other place to go.
Location: Fast Food at walking distance, Arecibo Observatory, Camuy Caverns, shopping mall, Beach...
I stay as a Honeymoon destination (on New Year's Eve). Excellent location (direct access to main road). Hotel staff always available to help. Recommended for couples and adults if your are not intent to leave the hotel. Small pool on the 4th floor close to the restaurant. Next time, for sure I'm going to stay here.

Family Hotel while trying to explore Puerto Rico

Posted Jun 7, 2013
Pros: The welcoming staff and ocean view
Cons: The pool was small and on the 4th floor. Children may enjoy it, but I didn't find it inviting.
Location: Highway 2 in Hatillo, PR
Hotel choices outside the San Juan and resort areas are very limited in Puerto Rico. Hotel Rosa del Mar is your only decent choice for the Hatillo, Arecibo area. We spent 5 nights with an ocean view room. I was too critical at first, forming opinions on US standards and expectations. This is a family owned and operated hotel and that is what you get. A warm welcome and efforts to please you during your stay. The room was comfortable and adequate with air conditioning that worked well. As we became friendly with the staff, they really wanted to exceed our needs. I look forward to visiting this hotel again, as we now have new friends there. The location is convenient to the area. The restaurant on the 4th floor, Mojito's, was tasty and fun. Miguel, who works the front desk was hilarious and out-of-his-way helpful. You can experience some local flavor at Rosa del Mar. Security was good!
