Hotel staff was excellent, rooms were outdated but adequate, cleaning staff missed cleaning our room 4 different days during our time there. Great pool area and direct access to the beach. Outside bar closed very early every day, wish it stayed open later than 5 pm.

BAD for some, Rooms need updates/repair ... The laminate covering bathroom cabinets peeling off, not updated ... but OK. Took my towels, never replaced them. This location is 30-40 from San Juan, only 2 excursions leave from the Embassy. This is part of The Embassy, all is shared with them, but you have to pay for breakfast at the Embassy Chinese rest closed coffee shop closed gym closed (not our thing anyhoo LOL) GOOD: On the beach, beautifuls pools, private location, quiet, friendly helpful staff. WE wanted a quiet vacation away from our kids, this fit the bill at a great price!

The pool is nice but it is a shared pool by embassy suites hotel that is right next door. This hotel is isolated with no restaurants or shopping within walking distance. The rooms need serious repairs. We had to change rooms 3x because of flooding from the balcony, power issues and there was a moldy smell in all the rooms for a lack ventilation.
