    We had only one day to spend in San Juan and they could give us the key at 4 pm!!! They were late 4.45 and did not comply with our reservation : 2 inter connected rooms. We had to accept to have 2 rooms far from each one with 2 kids Nothing was done to cover their mistake!!!

    Never again there, and do not recommend this hotel!

    Very good

    It was very clean and staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel was located in a convienent location with plenty other services around the facility.

    It was more of a family type with children hotel and we would have preferred a more adult atmosphere.

    Very good

    Excellent location and facilities in general,very friendly staff,nice ambience.The japanese restaurant is recommendable, price- and quality- wise.

    Small,old fahioned bath room ,towels quantity for swimmingpool use are limited and really small.The italian restaurant called Alfredo has nothing to do with "Alfredos" in Rome. Just the dishes have italian names, and the pasta was not fresh but sticky, tomato sauces are prepared with caned tomatoes,seafood were not fresh but deep frozen.Late check out cost is around 70 usd. Breakfast buffet cost is to high (33 usd including 15% servce charge) and poor in terms of quality an variance. After 7 days eating scrambled eggs,"home made" potatos oat meal,etc., Same kind of cheap fruits you get tired.
