We came here for lunch with a tour group. We were seated immediately and the service was great. The mojitos were made just right. We both ordered from the special lunch menu... I had a wonderful lobster stew and my husband had a tasty roasted...More

The staff was helpful and very nice. We got the mofongo with the grouper and it was very good. I would be sure to visit again to try the other mofongo options. I also got the drink named after the restaurant and it was good...More

We highly recommend the Cafe Puerto Rico! We had dinner at the cafe; and this was by far the best mofungo we had all trip. Get the grouper mofungo with garlic wine sauce -- amazing. The price was fair and the service was great.

We had the Grouper mofongo with the garlic based sauce... It was really good...it's a tiny place, but worth a stop for sure.

On recommendations here on Trip Advisor we had dinner here last night. We were seated quickly upstairs and basically forgotten, along with two other tables of American tourists. Our drinks took 1/2 hour to arrive and although the waitress was apologetic, she didn't offer us...More

After touring around the forts and before some shopping we stopped at Cafe' Puerto Rico on a recommendation. In short, its ok, not great depending on what your order. Service when we went at 1:30pm on a Monday was ok. But they got two orders...More

It was great. All the Puerto Rican dishes. The monfogo was awesome, rice was great, and the beans were so good. Tres leches was great as well. We loved every piece of food we ate. The waiters were nice and refilled our glasses quickly.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am checking in at the end of February(2015) to celebrate my anniversary. I had a few questions about our stay that I wasn't able to find out online. 1. Do you have an adults only pool? 2. What are the pool hours? 3. Is it hard to get a lounge chair pool/beach if you are a late riser(9-10 AM)? I have read other reviews that say you need to claim your chair by 8am. 4. What is the cost of the airport shuttle and when should we book it if we decide to go that route? 5. We booked the all-inclusive. How does that work? do we get a bracelet or just bill to our room and then its removed at checkout?
