Nothing to write home about
Posted Jun 13, 2015
We don't usually write reviews, but wanted to make others aware before booking this hotel. Half of the complex is in total disrepair and is "blocked off" so that you cannot get access to it, which is a good thing because our first impression was, "Oh, no. What have we gotten ourselves into?" It looks like they may be doing some renovations, but not sure. There were large bags of garbage stacked at one end of the parking lot, and a rusty tractor trailer parked in the lot, too. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, which was plenty of room for our family of 5, but there was an odor that we couldn't seem to get rid of. It even followed us home until we washed everything! Also, the cleanliness of the kitchen appliances left much to be desired, and everything could certainly have used a facelift. On the positive side, the staff was very pleasant, and the small beach/pool bar/restaurant was nice. We enjoyed many nights sitting at the bar and listening to the ocean waves. The pool and beach area were decent, although the beach could use a little cleanup. The fitness facilities were sufficient and they were adding a new piece of equipment when we were checking out. Also, there isn't really anything close by to do, i.e. water sports, etc. You have to travel to San Juan or Isla Verde, which are about 30 minutes away. I certainly would not say that this hotel is 4 out of 5; more like a 2.5 to 3 out of 5.
