- Backpacking
Though the hotel is not located int he high way. The place is great, quiet, the ambiance is very relaxing, my constructive criticism is this. I suggest putting front desk personnel. This is hotel there should be one, and also putting a tel or intercom in the room, so that every guest need would be attended. instead the guest always going out int he lobby it's so in uncomfortable.
- Family vacation
Our stay was awesome. Even if we were not able to surf, we were able to enjoy the pool. :)
- Romantic Vacation
Really nice looking place with pool and quiet beach. You can borrow a volleyball for free. Bathroom has bathtub too. Might be cheaper to call the hotel directly though for reservation. Breakfast is good also. Best to have your own car to go to major spots like El Union and Flotsam because it's quite far for walking.

The ambiance and amenities are at par internationally. Building aesthetics are mediterranean inspired, a welcome sight for local tourists. Clean rooms, pool and surroundings. Reasonably priced. Food is also great, must try are their pizza and nachos. The owner is there most of the time chatting with guests. We only have two requests though, improve wifi signal and to add some cotton buds in the personal hygiene kit. More power. We'll definitely come back.

Great accommodation
The place was great... everything was clean, pool was great since it was around 7 feet deep, beach is clean, our room was clean, aircondition worked properly, overall place was quiet and serene. The only thing that it needs to be improved on is the serving of the food...lol and I think there should be a phone in every room so we can call the frontdesk. Aside from that, I loved everything.

Not a Bad Alternative Option
From the outside the place looks wow. Location wise it is not a bad place considering there is a pool and a beach front where you can swim compared to most hotels/ accommodation in LU which don't have both. I think the place is new (a year or so since it opened) and place/management can still be improved. The air-con took hours before the room felt cold due to the high ceilings and they only open the air-con soon as you arrive. There are dead roaches in the bathroom which I think they don't inspect the room before guests arrive but the place is clean and beds and linens feels comfy. It's true that the place doesn't feel crowded even if they are fully booked (we went there on a long weekend). I think they are understaffed during breakfast time because orders takes a while to be served and you can see the staff rushing and getting a bit exhausted. But staff are friendly, accommodating, and still tries their best to respond to all requests of the guests. For what you pay, I can still say you get your money's worth with their big rooms, welcome drinks, free breakfast, free use of pool (they even lend inflatables to kids), beach access, yummy and big serving of food (you need not go to other places to look for food). It is a good family place and our toddlers enjoyed their stay. :)

Finding the place may be difficult unless you have WAZE or a GPS, it makes it easier. The rooms (Executive suite) has a Queen bed and a Single bed on the second floor and a sofa bed downstairs. The mattress in the sofa bed is thin, so I wasn't able to sleep much. Toilet downstairs and Toilet and Shower on the second floor. There is a kitchen with microwave and electric kettle. Flat TV on the ground floor. Coffee/cream sachets provided. The unit is constructed out of marble. The ground is very secured with security guards guarding the parking area. Checking in is easy and staff is friendly. The beachfront hotel has a swimming pool. Waves can be strong so surfing is good. Set Breakfast is a choice of Filipino and American food - both good choices. I highly recommend this place.

One of the few hotels in San Juan with Pool
We chose this hotel because it's new and has a pool. The room was clean and inviting. Bed is comfy and bathroom has a big bathtub. They provide welcome drinks and complimentary water. The food in the restaurant is generally good especially the crispy pata. The hotel is around 5-7 mins drive to the famous surfing area in San Juan. The beach area fronting the hotel is not ideal for swimming because of the strong undercurrent and water is quite deep. Customer Service is good, they attend to your needs and answer your questions. It would be really nice though if the staffs would smile more :) Things to improve: 1.The bedsheet and towels are not smelling fresh. 2. It keeps on flooding in the bathroom no matter how careful we are. 3. Wifi is a bit slow. Overall, it's a nice place in San Juan with great beach view, comfy rooms, a pool where you can cool down and resto with good food. We will be back.

Nice and Clean
The Overall Place was nice, clean and had ample parking. Place was booked but was not crowded which is a plus. We rented the Suite Villa. The Good: The Villa had good space for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). The marble flooring and walls looked prestine. Can be improved: The ground floor toilet was clean but had a funny smell. The 2nd floor aircon was not cool enough - which was compensated by a stand fan so was ok. Sleep quality: Good The pool was ok. Beach front was clean and had good amount of medium waves. You can swim and there were some who were surfing. Food was ok. Serving size good, not that exceptional but was ok. There was a man and woman singing at the restaurant during dinner - wasn't sure if this was good or bad, certainly not great though. Karaoke singing could be heard thru the night - although it is tolerable when you are inside the villa already. Service was prompt. Check in and check out - quick and hassle free.
