We stayed here for one night before a cruise. Our room was clean but we were unable to have any natural light as our room had parked cars an arm's length away. There was a restaurant with a nice view, nicer in the evening. The buildings flush to the hotel were abandoned or in a stage of being repaired. We...

We had a 2 night stay in Feb 2015 with a confirmed reservation in hand thru booking.com.they said our reservation was cancelled. That never happened. They gave us a choice of 2 cheaper hotels down the street. Thank goodness I had reviewed them before deciding. They paid 10.00 for the taxi for the better hotel I chose. At least that...

First of all the rooms are small. They advertise 2 adults + 2 children, No way. Only one Quin bed. I went there with my wife and son and it was worst nights in my life. Quin bed is not capable to accommodate 2 adults and a kid unless adults are kid size. No free parking. Don't believe you can...

The reason why we loved this hotel was because it was within walking distance to everything- we walked to town everyday to eat at local restaurants and to catch the public bus for transportation around San Juan. In Isla Verde, we never felt endangered or unsafe at anytime as we were two women in our 20's. The hotel staff was...

I wanted to stay somewhere right off the beach. As young 20-somethings, we love the beach. :) Hotel La Playa is located in Isla Verde, with 2 beaches to choose from, and literally steps from your hotel. There are only 15 rooms! So, that was a consideration in staying there for the time we were there. You have all of...

Hotel La Playa is a small, independent hotel, which is well run by a friendly staff. While neither modern nor luxurious, it is clean, well maintained, and ideally located with a great ocean view from the restaurant deck and easy access to the beach.

As travel agents for a group of friends cruising together, we had several in the group, including ourselves who needed one or more hotel nights preceding and following the cruise. One of our number was given the name of this hotel as the place to stay, and so I booked a bunch of us here. The rooms varied wildly in...

My sister and I stayed her for 5 nights during the San Sebastian Festival 2015. We chose this hotel because it was small and quaint and figured with a bar/restaurant on site a staggering trip back to the room would be easy. The rooms were basic and provided enough room for our overfilled baggage. The best part of the rooms...
