While standing to make a difficult digestion on a poorly cooked soup because I have dysphagia stage 4, I was told by the manager I could not stand to digest it. When I explained my condition as told to me by the Mayo clinic among many others so she would understands my situation, she sent me to my room to...

Excellent place to stay if you want to be in San Juan but not pay the hotel rates. Cosy, small and delightful with the ocean lapping at your feet, near by restaurants are plentiful. Nice accommodations.

Loved our 4 day visit! Ocean Park is a great location to see San Juan from. Close to great restaurants and a short taxi to either Old San Juan or the airport.

This quaint hotel is perfectly located. Nestled in the gated and safe community of Ocean Park, this small, family owned hotel is great for families. We are traveling with our two month old son and were upgraded upon arrival so we had use of a fridge and microwave for his bottles. Falling asleep to the ocean waves crashing into shore...

We arrived at 5am, we had to go to the second floor and let me tell you, lugging our luggage up was no picnic. The gentleman who checked us in went up the stairs ahead of us while we struggled with our luggage and didn't help, I thought that was really rude. When we left the owner said let us...

The room didn't have hot water and it was next to a construction. We couldn't sleep with all the noise the workers was making. We complained with the hotel staff and they do nothing about it. I do not recommend this hotel.

I had great expectations for this hotel, since it sits right on the beach, and it has UVVA, one of my favorite restaurants. The staff needs to be better trained. First, upon arrival we were not told that they had showers inside to wash off the sand. So I showered in my room, and the shower was clogged. Then the...

This small hotel is situated in a calm area where there are mostly private houses. The area is gated and some of the gates close in the evening, but access through the main gate (which was always open) was easy. The hotel is very close to many and good restaurants and cafes. Our hotel room was very nice, it had...

The hotel is literally right on the beach which means you get to have your morning coffee with your feet in the sand and the warm Caribbean wind blowing in your hair!

This small hotel is right on the deep sandy Atlantic Ocean beach in an otherwise residential area, so it's quite safe. It's also on the end of the beach, so there's relatively more privacy than might otherwise be the case. It's only a 15 or 20 minute ride from the airport, but the planes take off in the other direction...
