Is a good hotel if you rent a car to move around It Is very clean and quiet I did not like the gym as I travel solo and needed fhe gym for mornings The gym is super small and located in a ackward room next to the spa. Would help if they moved that up and have you workout viewing the water. Lots of people used the gym while I was there so it needs improvement. The beach was always with waves. The water was not blue but more green. If you walk too far towards east you hit the river and the small mosquitos called "mimes" will eat you up. Restaurants were good but pricey. No cash acceptance so need credit card for all and the bank fees are high if you withdraw money in PR for any Chase person. Overall is a nice property hotel but not for singles unless you rent a car and move around.
The entire resort is clean and well maintained!!! We will definitely go back! Not much privacy on the balcony. Over looking busy and noisy pool area.
This hotel was clean and had a lot to offer for the price! Although not located on the beach it was only a 4 min walk and worth the scenic route! The breakfast and the free happy hour made the trip!
I guess the Outback at this location was a plus. Check in process. 2 workers working the front desk. One with her head down, another talking to another person on in maintenance. No feeling of being welcome at this property. Hotel room had cracked tile, mold and black spots in the tub in the bathroom. Also asked for a wine opener to enjoy a bottle of wine in our room. The bartender didn't have a wine opener!
Nice pool, though not for lap swimming. The jacuzzi was nice and hot, though it could use more jets. We enjoyed the Happy Hour with free beverages. The "free appetizers" are just taco chips and popcorn. The free breakfast is alright - get there early if you don't want to wait in a long line. Includes greek yogurt, fresh fruit, as well as hot foods. The hotel is a short walk from a beautiful beach, where the guest is supplied with free chairs and towels. Umbrellas may be available for those who arrive early. There are some great nearby restaurants, Metropol is one. "Old Town" is 6 miles away. Nice, but don't get stuck in all the gift shops unless you really enjoy that kind of thing. The WiFi is useless. There is loud music playing often, which can be heard in any room, as all rooms surround an atrium.
The pool was great but unfortunately no access to jacuzzi at night. Within walking distance to a nice beach. Service was extremely slow. Had to wait an hour for a tiny pizza at the pool area and it took us 45 mins to check out due to very slow service and not enough staff on a busy Sunday morning. Lastly, we ordered glasses to our room that never came and there was a dirty towel in the bathroom when we checked in.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Facility was clean. Access to the ocean easy. Landscaping is mature and nice. This resort is confused. It has high end and empty jewellery stores but a down market casino and resultant clientele. The hotel has only one pool which doesn't function as a central location. The hotel itself has no atmosphere. Feels very loud and downmarket inside. The prices for food etc are extortionate. The hotel is located literally alongside the airport runway, so planes take off all day and evening beside you. Deafening noise on the beach. The beach is sketchy, not cleaned each morning. Bed service is managed by guys in a truck which spews exhaust over you and adds more noise. The beach isn't big enough to need that. Clientele smoke and in in case smoke weed on the beach so it blows all over you. Other clientele - the casino types - drink heavily in the beach and get loud etc. then there are the cell phone junkies talking loudly about their dreary lives at the top of their voices. Time to zone the beach.
Friendly staff. Nickle & Dimed. Pre-arranged amenaties, spa services and payment. All was lost somewhere between the concierge and front desk; so had to change plans and credit card.
Spa. And service The beach cafeteria takes too long and always gets the order wrong
Restaurants on the beach had great views and delicious food. Hotel was very clean. You get charged for every little thing.
Good location and facilities, not a big Hotel, everything was easily accessible. Remodeling job in progress above the first room they gave us, the noise was disturbing, room was outdated. The second room they gave us, after our complaint was on a higher floor and recently updated. Why not gave a clean, updated and silent room on first instance?
Beautiful hotel right on the water. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Airport was very close and you could hear the planes at times. The food at the hotel restaurants was over priced at night. I wish the pool side restaurant was open all day.
Staff was very nice and place was beautiful restaurants were very good We had a lot of problems with ac first night
Mi experiencia no fue buena. Nos dieron un habitacion que olia a humedad, pedimos cambiar la habitación el personal no fue muy amable. Nunca tuvimos agua caliente durante la estadia, los muebles estaban sucios. En fin la habitación fue un desastre.
I liked all the hotel, great price, super hotel pool lagoon look alike, perfect...
View and pool Horrible service, poor food
Beautiful private beach, big pool, huge property (5 kms to get to the hotel from the main road), reasonable priced They only have a couple of golf carts that take you to your room. Staff can be rude sometimes. Bottled water only for the first night.
The Gran Melia PR was absolutely amazing. The room was beautiful and the service was nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend staying here on a visit to Puerto Rico.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our first room smelled strongly of mold, had a noisy bathroom fan that had to be on to have light, a shower with absolutely no water pressure (because I think the water was going into the wall, hence the mold) and an air conditioner that wouldn't cycle so we had to just turn it off for the room to warm above 65 degrees. After discussing with the front desk, they moved us to a room in a better location that didn't smell of mold, had decent water pressure in the shower, but it's air conditioner had the same issue. The room didn't feel clean but we made the most of it because we had to. The property's foliage is all old and sparse, just sort of pathetic. We were at this property in 2011 and thought highly of that experience. It's gone downhill. I've heard that if you have "red level" that it's a different experience. We didn't have that opportunity because we purchased last minute through kayak.
Everything, from the villas to the enormous pool, the long serene beach, the extreme privacy, well manicured property, wonderful staff and luxurious settings. The pool bar and beach bar attendants were terrible. Stood at the pool bar looking to order drinks and literally not even acknowledged we were there ...walked to beach bar hoping to get better service. Nope same thing, he didn't even look at us.. Walked away empty handed two times.
Hotel facilities are great. Especially pool is great. You can spend a whole day. It is also very close to El Yunke and Biobay activities. You should not expect foods in the hotel restaurants. It was actually awful. Also the hotel staff are not accustomed to booking.com system yet and they actually charged my credit card twice ! I called them to cancel one of them afterwards but they made me wait for half an hour over the phone and their reaction was so slow..
The hotel is beautiful but I was treated very bad by two of their seller, as soon as she realized that I was not interested in to buy their package of vacations for the next 50 years!!, she went so angry with me and almost told me that I was a poor guy and this was not for everybody. We were a honeymoon couple and Im still amazed of their lack of professionalism. I sent an email to the direction of Sol melia and currently waiting for what they have to officialy say to me about this matter. Yes, they sell packages of vacations, like some special membership, for the next 50 years or so, they offer you something to go and listen but if you dont buy they went so angry and unprofessional, at least this was my experience.
Hotel staff was very friendly and cpmpetent Restaurant prices were very expensive. Patio furniture needs to be replaced.
This place is paradise. Not enough snack or lunch options.
The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The estate is gorgeous and includes beautiful pools and a fantastic 2 mile beach. The service at the pool was a bit slow and needs to be improved. The room service menu was somewhat limited and should include a few more options. However, overall this is a place I'd visit again.
We enjoyed 5 nights in this lovely hotel. Everything that you read about the prices is true. The food is very expensive and not really exceptional, but good. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The beach is really private and great for long walks. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is really secluded, so having a car is helpful.
Very comfortable and relaxing rooms . And there is plenty to do and very close to airport .
the atmosphere and the nightclub,
the booking was mixed up from the time of inception i had to call booking .com because el san jaun did not have my reservation the hotel checked us out of our room on august 2nd instead of august 3rd like reserved and the room rate was very high with a view of brick walls the pool was shut down from august 2-4 i'm notpleased with the whole experience
The staff very nice!! Great music entertainment. Great restaurants and shops. The casino was very nice too. Food. Needs more authentic Puerto Rican food. ;)
The central Areas inside the hotel were chic and clean. The outside areas around the pool were not cared for. There was trash laying around that the staff would walk by... it rained part of the time we were there and instead of removing the chair cushons or even flipping them on their side they simply let the cushons gather rain water on them... when the rain stopped, they would simply throw the towels on the chairs over a puddle of water. The room was just okay. They charge ridiculous prices for everything!
great location. great restaurants. clean rooms! Staff was very attentive. Pool side bars had very slow service.
