We had an excellent time, highlight was that our room window opened fully, facing the ocean. Beautiful!
El mar y la piscina maravillosos ..... Nada todo me gusto
Excellent venue. Poor staff. Very stuffy. Don't use Uber as the staff will ask you to have the Uber pick you up at the curb vs the hotel entrance.
Beautiful room - even the pull out couch was extremely comfortable - memory foam mattress! The lobby staff (registration, concierge, bell hop, etc) was very attentive and friendly. The hotel has a very classic feel of old luxury. I would definitely stay there again! The beach was actually over at the neighboring hotel, they said we would have full service at their beach but every time we went, they were "out" of umbrellas on the Vanderbilt side of the beach. We counted and they only had about 12 umbrellas in total for Vanderbilt guests which is ridiculous! Also the are designated for Vanderbilt is over in the corner without a direct view of the ocean. I was disappointed.
Still holding money on my credit card.
Everything! outdoor spaces, great food, rooms spacious and confortable, amazing view of the ocean everywhere. One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Would love to come back.
The rooms were luxurious yet charming, the staff was very helpful and the pool/lounge area was great Not much to dislike.
The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Pools were lovely and clean (slightly chilly for my taste). Adults only area was nice. Only tried the patio restaurant which was very good, but pricey ($50 for french toast, OJ, single egg and sausage). Room air conditioner had issues. Maintenance was unable to solve the issue and did not notify front desk that the issue was not fixed.
I arrived at 3:40 pm and was told that the room I booked is not available. The front desk staff guaranteed that it would be ready by 4pm, but when I came back at 4:06pm I was told again the room is not ready. I finally checked in by 5pm and nobody explained why. They gave me two key cards and one doesn't work which kept me out of the room when I came back from swimming the other day. It is the most terrible experience that I have and I definitely don't recommend this hotel
Everything was Fantastic
I love the service everyone was so kind and helpful. The hotel was beautiful inside and out.
Our family loved the close proximity to the beach. Taxis were too expensive. There's not enough public transportation.
I love how they had all the Amenities on site, and the Staff was Polite always willing to help and offer refreshments. The Rooms had a little Moldy Smell. Other wise my kids love the Pool and the Beach.
Nice hotel, a little bit old Staff members are great Location is one of the best in San Juan Nice Beach front, nice poll area, everything else is below average You have CSV, Walgreens, and many restaurants walking distance Everything is overpriced Rooms are old and small Bar is noisy and crowd not cool at all Casino area looks aweful I didn't wasted time on it
Location is amazing. Condado area is vibrant. Great restaurants, great sightseeing. Our room had roaches and after getting a minor upgrade, things went downhill. In the fine print, breakfast package excluded my 12 year old daughter, which put us in a weird place because we were then forced to pay for the overpriced breakfast or take her somewhere to eat. The hotel muddled up our booking. We received wrong expectations about our room, which ended up Being small and cramped. Hotel management isn't empowered to take care of customers and we received an "it-is-what-it-is" attitude from the staff. After asking, they said that for a discounted fee, we could upgrade. The total amount meant $250 out of pocket which we couldn't do. This was even after letting them know it was our first time staying there and we were in town to celebrate my brother in law's birthday. The hotel restaurant's food was bland and the quality is not 4 star level. Chefs couldn't even get a boiled egg right for our 18-month old. Every morning, we had to request it at least twice. Room service was poor and slow: a simple order of chicken tenders with ice cream jumped from $12 to $23, between tax and the high delivery fee. To make things worse, after almost an hour, the order arrived with missing silverware and napkins for which we had to call again. Was so let down by this experience. Go to La Concha a block down. The few extra dollars will be well worth it.
I saw all the resorts and this on has the best bang for your buck. I am a young doctor and went with my girlfriend and did extensive research on best water front resorts and this is the one because of the pool and service. Becareful other hotels are in front of rocky beaches that will ruin your vacation. This has great beach prime location and amazing options on things to do.
Service from the staff was excellent. View from our room was fantastic. Room and grounds were kept very clean. Beach was lovely and kept clean. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to return. A little pricey. Also someone was smoking on their balcony. We could not sit on our balcony one evening because of the smokers. I was told that the hotel policy allows smoking on the balconies as long as their balcony door remains shut. That may be fine to keep smoke out of the room but it doesn't help guests in nearby rooms. Smoking should not be allowed anywhere on the grounds, including balconies.
We loved the amenities, cleanliness , and attentiveness of staff in addition the local of the hotel to all different conviniences Nothing to dislike
Staff is really courteous, upgraded our room for free. Always smiling, will help you no matter what. Had an amazing stay, and will definitely come back again.
Wonderful live music at pool and in lobby. Beautiful beach, plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Nice pool, just a little chilly. Food is so-so and overpriced (no big surprise).
Great pool for toddlers! Awesome restaurants and service. For lunch La Isla restaurant kebobs are highly recommended. Our room had a ocean view that ir worth the extra money. Beach is great but watch out for little kids cause waves are unpredictable and can get very strong from one second to another. I suggest keep them at the shore.
EMPLOYEES VERY NICE WORK VERY HARD TO PLEASE YOU LOBBY MUSIC VERY LOUD I USED EAR PLUGS
Great staff and great accommodations! We only ate once at this hotel but it was very pricey but the food was above average. Hotel is in a great location and is within walking distance of many restaurants and other attractions. I would visit again! Obviously pricing of hotel restaurants is going to be pricey but it was pretty steep. I wish they offered something along the lines of a free continental breakfast. Other than this I cannot complain!
The distance to the beach, the location in terms of dining/night life Everything was great at the hotel except breakfast. We stayed there for 4 days and 3 out of 4 there was at least something to eat but the las day was going into the weekend so it got busier. By 8:45 AM all the food was gone and they had nothing to re-fill it with. It wasn't just one item but omelettes, side, sausage, cereal, and even pastrywas gone. When I asked the floor manager if they have absolutely anything to eat he was very unapologetic and said we should have come earlier
Nice amenities. Very clean and accesible. Comfortable. Nice breakfast. The bathroom smelled too much to clorox. Expensive parking.
Good breakfast included, friendly staff, and convenient parking lot next to hotel for $17/day. Only negative was that the location was loud and noisy at night (due to busy popular location) and we were woken up while sleeping.
Excellent staff and breakfast Nothing
The bathrooms were amazing! Balcony, the buffet style breakfast in the morning was amazing! After a week the bed got hard but that was the only thing!
Some of the rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The location is superb; close to highways (but not too close), many restaurants, the beach, convenience stores and many other atractions. The lobby looks great and the staff, at first impression (see "What did't you like?" section), seems knowledgeable, useful and amicable. Management decided that 3:00 AM on a Tuesday was the perfect time to, using pneumatic hammers and drills, install a sign on the exterior of the nroth tower (where I was staying)!! After some negotiations (you would had thought this was a given) with the front desk they agreed to move me to a room in the south tower. However, that room was not clean, the bed was not amde and the closet doors would not open. The front desk offered to send maintenance to fix everything...AT 9:00 AM!!! Once again it took some convincing, but they finally move me to a clean and, more importanly, quiet room. The hotel manager promised to credit my account with two nights and parking fees; however, during check-out they refused to give me a receipt saying that it would be emailed to me. I am still waiting for the email or the credit.
Everybody was so nice to us! Needs room service ASAP
Cleanliness and lots to do within walking distance All the homeless people laying around in the area
Overall service. It was ok. No identifiable faults.
GREAT value in an AWESOME location with great views! Nothing
Pros: Lobby: very clean, with friendly staff at front desk. Nice aquarium. Free water and coffee. Plenty of room to sit and lounge with descent music and accessible large screen televisions. Location: across the street from walgreens. On the corner of Ashford Avenue. Most places within walking distance. Cons: Wrong room: we reserved a king bed but instead we were given two Queens without being told. We found when we walked into the room that it was the wrong room. The front desk eventually corrected the mistake Poor vector control: there were ants and roaches in the room. ants on the carpet and night stand. Woken up to a dead roach on the floor near the door Poor AC: the window AC wasn't able to make the room cooler than 73 degrees Fahrenheit despite the setting being at a lower number Dirty towels: the white towels had stains on them and would leave lint on the skin after drying off Bedding: stiff bed. Their was no underlying bed liner Parking : an open lot behind the hotel with no visible security presence.
Vibrant, entertaining but also relaxing and luxurious. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The facility was clean, never noticed bathroom soap, towels, tissue empty or a mess. Room was a suite with ample space, balcony and kitchenette. It seemed much more suited to adults only but there were families. Location was great, right on the beach. Bikes were available which we took into Old San Juan. I would stay here again and again with adults. On occasion, I felt that the music was too loud (ack! I'm getting old!) But that was really it.
The beach and pool facilities are great My room did not electricity for 48 hours, the hotel would not offer much more than a complimentary buffet breakfast.
Modern look that is on the beach with pools and in a nice area. Every part of the hotel was clean including the gym and toilets. The restaurants were also excellent with good choices and healthy options available. Overall awesome and would definitely recommend this luxurious hotel. Resort fees. I feel that the hotel is priced right and that there is no reason to tack on resort fees. Drinks a little pricey
Loved the suite with full kitchen. Would do this again! HOusekeeping was not cleaning room if I did not ask or let them know I was out. Room did not get made up last day at all, and I was out all day.
Beautiful hotel with open lobby and modern clean feeling. Even though the reservation was a prepaid, I still got hosed with a resort fee. A couple of bottles of water and a beach chair shouldn't cost 25 bucks. Got the runaround as to why my Marriott status was worth nothing at this resort property.
I loved the 3 different pool options. We used the adult pool the entire time, which is much quieter and has a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Most staff were so friendly and helpful. Menu is pretty reasonable and prices are comparable to surrounding area, except quality is much much better. Tuna salad was my favorite thing by far. Mixed drinks were weak and pricey. Rules weren't always enforced. Example, there was a 5 year old at the adult pool for about 2 hours until someone finally noticed. We were also told we couldn't bring our own mixed drinks to the pool, yet others would blatantly have a 6 pack from cvs out in the open. Hallways were a little dingy.
Well maintained despite not being a new resort; Modern, comfortable and clean rooms; Large staff and very friendly and accommodating; Adult pool! It was the most quiet and least congested area. Not sure some people knew it was there. If you like resorts and don't mind the crowds you will enjoy this hotel. Party-like atmosphere on the weekend- if that's what you want you will have a great time. Personally, I didn't like the music on the beach. Also, the beach is fairly narrow and the main beach area and pool area are both crowded with chairs very close to one another. I prefer more space and don't want to be sitting an inch away from a total stranger. It can be tough to find the sun in the afternoon when the hotel casts a shadow on the beach. Scope out a good spot early.
location and beach were great.
Wonderful service, style and ambience. Would go back in a heartbeat!
hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. hotel was right on the water, great drinks and food. Located in a nice area to walk around at any time of the day. Close to shopping, and local restaurants. Hotel guests were a mix of families, couples, business, and groups of friends. There was an adult only pool as well as 3 others. Will definitely be going back and staying here!
All 3 pools were beautiful. Definitely worth the upgrade to an OceanView Suite. The views are out of this world! Restaurants all had good food, even poolside. Pleasantly surprised. Would definitely return To PR and stay here again. Nothing to complain about
The Condado Plaza is a great bargain to escape the Winter blues and the excessive snows of the northeast. The staff is pleasant and helpful. When we first arrived and checked in, the room we were assigned had a defective AC unit and it was a humid swamp. I went to the front desk and explained the problem and was immediately moved to another room with working AC. The front desk staff was polite and personal. The hotel needs updating. It appears to have had a renovation in many of the public areas and the rooms. Those areas have a boutique hotel vibe, but the carpet in the hallways of the room floors need to be replaced.
I loved the pools, swim up bar, the food was good too! The staff was super friendly and the place was very clean! The beach is man-made, very small, and the ocean is more like an inlet.
Beautiful hotel and amazing location with some great amenity options. The staff was very poorly trained and had terrible customer service skills. In our stay we got completely ignored by a consierge, had to wait to check in an hour after the check in time, a stuffed animal taken from our room by house keeping never to be returned. To top it off the walls are painfully thin, and a group of 6 teenagers got checked in next to us. Loved the location but will stay elsewhere at my next visit.
The staff was very friendly and helpful at the check in. The rooms are very clean and modern. Good location. No room service. No water bottles in the room, if you want something to drink or eat you have to go to the lobby or a cafe in the second floor.
The taxes were supposed to be encluded- they were not!!
Remote didn't work. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work Room stains on counter and the floor that were not cleaned from previous guest. I checked in after 10 pm and was too tired to asked for a different room , then the remote didn't work, again too too tired to call but in the morning when the exhaust fan fan in bathroom did not work I, thought the view was not worth it.
Everything was so unbelievably great. The staff was awesome, the views were spectacular, the water sports were on point, proximity to the center of old san juan and condado center. extreme value for the money.
Outdated and deteriorated exterior facade. Bar area can use an update. It's a good 20 years behind. More outdoor seating can be added to the terrace.
I liked the beach being right there Wifi didn't work for a few hours tons of problems, when we told staff they said that they would call att, they said nothing was wrong with it, finally me fiddling with my phone, and almost a day later we got it to work. But the one thing that pissed me off, was the fact that they have hidden fees like a deposit of some kind that no one tells you before you go, which you if you pay that deposit with a debit card you're screwed because you have to wait 2 weeks to get it back. Everything is absolutely overpriced even the water. So what I did to frugal with my money was that i bought snacks and water so i wouldn't have to be $5 for a bottle of water. I could go on, but I didn't like it and will not stay here again
I loved the location. The hotel staff was fabulous. Very friendly and willing to help. The door to my balcony was permanently locked. I would have like to have had access to the balcony.
Loved the salt water pool, the oceanfront hammocks, the different restaurant options in the hotel, the 24 pool/hot tubs, very friendly and accommodating staff The rooms were very small and didn't have a dresser
The rooms are clean, facility well kept, and staff friendly The bed was not as comfortable as we expected
Hotel is clean and friendly staff Location isn't the best taxi to old San Juan was about 15.00 dollars each way. No restaurants nearby so you have to get a taxicab and can become costly.
The cleanliness was great, housekeeping department was extraordinary. The people at the Cafe on the lobby were great. Some of the staff at the front desk were not that polite as I was expecting since I am an SPG member.
Housekeeping is mediocre, they take too much time to get the whole floor clean.
I think the staff was very friendly and helpful. The guys who work at the pool bar and the breakfast staff who works in the cafe. However I would say the front desk staff was my favorite. Thank you so much for making my vacation one of the best vacation ever!
Rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was warm and friendly. Loved the total non-smoking environment which amazingly included the casino. We also appreciated having the green option available for opting out of daily room service. Had difficulty getting service in their restaurant in the evenings. In fact, one evening we were the only two patrons and after being seated for 10+ minutes with no waitperson approaching us, we left to go eat elsewhere. However, breakfast was great!
Love the casino love the Metropole restaurant love the pool I don't like it there is not a beach in the hotel
It was close to convention center. It does not have facilities to clean your clothes at your own. It should have a small laundry area. I stayed 4 days for a volleyball tournament, and I had to clean the uniforms by hand everyday. They just have a few fridges we were put on a wait list and never call us.
The view the infinitity pool and the casino The staff at nice and also they don't change your sheets everyday unless it's requested
The infinity pool was great! Rooms were nice and beds were extremely comfortable. The rooms didn't have vents and the food and drinks are expensive.
I loved the Club Lounge. The breakfast was superb. Every staff member I interacted with was super friendly and helpful. The food was very expensive and to be honest, the yellow walls reminded me of a high school (and not the good kind).
Good location and hotel looks great The bedding. The sheets were really dirty and if you pull the comforter up to the light you can see all the dust and deadskin That has been collecting into the comforter and it is digusting.
free cookies and ping pong table. staff was very friendly Lobby smelled like sewage. there was a stain on one of the towels. The bed comforter looked dirty, but I think it was actually the stuffing just clumped together from washing many times.
Poool open24 hour a thumbs up! Lost my eyeglasses , i called first they say they found one and later no trace of them.. .strange.
Gave us access to Isla Verde Marriott courtyard facilities as well. Staff was great! Across the street from a supermarket, near plenty of restaurants. Hotel menu was unimpressive, pool area not attached to the beach, but really there is a ton to like about this hotel!
La localizacion Precios altos, el area de la picina pequeña y tenia muchas ojas. Me cobraron dos veces la trasancion y no me ofrecieron algún descuento o estadia. Aun espero por mi credito de vuelta.
Excellent staff and service Welcome cookies Resort fees but this would go for all hotels in the area. Parking options
Live that the rooms were clean and modern. Staff was super friendly and helpful. It was a bit of a walk to hot spots. If you're ok with walking 10 minutes or more to the nearest hot spot then your stay will be a walk on the beach!
Good location, everything was clean, great staff. Parking not included.
It was a wonderful experience. The staff was warm and friendly, and the room was immaculate.
Good location, lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Customer service House keeping. They took too long to clean our floor.
Hotel staff were friendly and informative. All areas of hotel were very tidy. I felt very welcomed and appreciated during my stay. The foot sham on the bed had stains. Cleaning service did not clean the glasses we used in the room. Hallways were quite cold for my taste. A bit pricey. Seems to be the norm in San Juan.
The extremely helpful staff at the front desk the breakfast was bad
Just one block from beach Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner, a little expensive for my taste but average for the area, hard to get parking!
Recently my friend and I visited Puerto Rico and stayed in various locations around the island. The night we stayed in San Juan we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It was right off of the main streets and close to the water. A short drive to Old San Juan.
I went away with my 15 year old daughter for a mother daughter weekend away we arrived on Thursday and left on Monday Overall stay was great staff were awesome and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable Rooms were clean and comfortable pool was small but just what we were looking for not to many people to compete with for chairs Loved all the different areas around the hotel for sitting and relaxing beach was less then a block away and not to crowded Staff were great friendly and helpful Sister hotel a block away had great breakfast Area was close enough to shopping and restaurants but far enough away for peace and quiet Beach less then block away
I loved the place, the staff, the location, the cozy boutique hotel. The rooms were old Spanish style, with a nice pool, and terrace. Bar, and near by beach, and restaurants. The worst part, and only thing I will not consider it again, is the parking issue. Parking in the establishment or around the building is 99% impossible. I had to walk 3 blocks and paid $25 to park. For that I might as well pay for a more expensive hotel with available parking.
I often stay at Wind Chimes. It is affordable, clean, attractive, and nicely situated for walking or bus lines. I would love access to tables for computer work. It would be nice to have a table and chair in the room
The pool was small, but great. Water was warm and it was well tended to.
Just walking thru the front gate up the front stairs and into the lobby the place had a wonderful old feel to it, from the carvings on the stair railings to the tiles on the floors as well as the architecture of the buIldings. The desk staff was amazing. We had only rented the room on Kayak two hours before we showed up. Check in was at 2pm, but coming back from a cruise we had nothing to do so showed up at 10am just to see if we could store our luggage until 2pm check in. They were kind enough to say yes. Our room had a double bed and was small but clean. They still use real keys on a key chain which I found very charming. There is a small swimming pool with a water fall running into the pool. The lighting and the plants in the back area and around the bar area are just lovely. There are no elevators and no bus boys which did not bother us but if you have an upper room you might want to take that into consideration if you like to pack heavy. The beach is one block away so easy walking. They do not have a restaurant on site but you can order from a limited menu and it is delivered to you from their "sister" hotel. Restaurants and pharmacies are within easy walking distance. The area is safe and you don't feel afraid to go out after dark. If you are looking for someone to wait on you and a maid on hand. ..this is not for you. But if you want a charming romantic villa style place to stay. ..I highly recommend this. Our room was next to the street and we got a lot of street noIse. Other than that. ..I didn't have any thing I didn't like.
Very attentive staff, comfortable accommodations. The location is perfect to the beach and many local favorites.
The location, price, and staff were amazing . Room was a little dated but still cozy a great stay.
Location was great, just a block from the beach and few blocks from great restaurants and entertainment. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great value for your money Doesn't have a parking available..have to drive around the block to park on the streets sometimes a block or two away
Location good No parking No pool Internet service unreliable Outdated building
Exterior, location, lobby, style. No chair or sofa nor desk in the room. No closet for clothes.
You are a few miles from the pier at Hyatt House. Good complimentary breakfast.
Breakfast potatoes. I would like a more veggie friendly breakfast
Friendly staff, all in good condition, everything is new. The location is in the San Juan convention center district, we book it for a convention and we walk to all the activities. Nice view to the harbor and the cruise line. If you are traveling to take a cruise (Royal Caribbean terminal) it just right there. Overall is a 4 star hotel.
The Olive Boutique Hotel was absolutely perfect for a solo traveler or couple staying in the Condado area of Puerto Rico. The location was great. It is situated just off of Ashford Avenue where all the hustle and bustle is, BUT remains relatively quiet because of its juxtaposition. The staff was awesome and so friendly. They really got to know you as a guest in the hotel and they were all so helpful with tips and finding your way around the island. I went solo for a birthday vacation and my stay was beyond wonderful. My room was comfy, cozy, and gorgeous. I received little treats everyday and even a bottle of champagne to celebrate my birthday! Everything is in walking distance and the beach is just across the street! What more could you ask for? The fact that I had to leave!
Olive Hotel was first class service. Wonderful staff. Very friendly and my wife and I always looked forward going back to relax and the roof top bar and pool was just perfect!
Its an amazing boutique hotel Better than expected!!
I like that is in a good area , not bad at all. Some convenience places to eat and buy simple things. Close walking to some local and hotel beaches. The hotel staff are very friendly and helped me out in every question or need I had. They solved the problem when I first arrive due to they gave me a room that had very bad smell of humidity. I was happy they found one Avalos room. This a small hotel that I recommend for a couple or just Adult Solo trip. Not for a family. Hallways in every floor need ventilation, it feels dry and some smell not bad but to a closed space smell. but in overall rate is a good hotel towards excellent for the price, WIFI Very good and having signal everywhere in the hotel. Quiet enough for resting. Bathroom nice and big, shower very good pressure. I would use this hotel for my solo trip but for the overall, I would suggest not to pay more than a $90.0 per night. I don't watch TV but I heard people complaint about problems with TV, until I had the experience my TV lost signal. I did not request to get it fixed because I expent my time outside the hotel. Bath tube drain clogged while showering so water was filling up above your feet. Parking not recommended... Very tiny space for all cars and every time you want to use the car same person at the front desk had to move and re park the other cars, while some one is waiting at the front desk until this person finish to accommodate the cars again. Don't get me wrong... They were always helpful, friendly and always willing to help you. Bad quality of customer service in the restaurant in front the hotel... and pricy.. But better go to other areas. Curtains in the room are too smal of the size of the window..so light comes through all night and doesn't keep the room dark. No door tags for RESTING /DO NOT DISTURB.. So cleaning service (very nice) they have to knock out your door. Price. I believe the rate is little high for what is worth. Find a better discount in the Internet even so the hotel is not Chain hotel company. Good luck.
Staff were professional and very helpful throughout our stay. Clean and a great location. Hotel had a great view of the ocean and parts of the city. Transportation was easy to grab to go to Old San Juan. It's our second time here and we will definitely be back soon. N/A
Nice clean hotel will a very nice staff. The lady that was the desk clerk was outstanding. They have a roof top terrace on the 9th floor with an outstanding view of the area. The area also has a nice local flair with many local restaurants and there is a grocery store a few doors down. I would stay here again.
Everything was great. Limited parking.
This was an unplanned stay but a very pleasant surprise while visiting family in Puerto Rico and finding this place by luck on short notice. The location was great within walking distance to Condado and Old San Juan. Also the staff was very friendly and seems to genuinely care care about their guests. For some reason the water from the shower was just warm and not hot but I was able overlook that because it was so hot in San Juan and the rooms were nice and clean. This is often nor the case in San Juan.
Had an excellent stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I could tell the woman who was over our floor took pride in her work.
Close to cruise ships and not far from airport, old town, paseo caribe, good restaurants, great rooftop terrace, helpful staff, neat cafe, exceptionally spacious room, excellent wifi, very clean,
I like the fact that you were close to restaurants and shopping. Close to the cruise port. We took a walk to Walmart and Marshall's near by. They have a roof top lounge area that is very nice at night. Wonderful breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. There is also a 24 hour restaurant across the street. There are plenty of eating places in the area. Had to wait over an hour for our room to be ready. So they stored everyone's luggage while they explored the town.
Room size was good and the redone bathroom was beautiful! Also LOVED the rooftop deck. It was our favorite thing about our stay because it was very quiet with good views of the city and harbor and lovely seating arrangements. We also enjoyed walking the neighborhood. There are lots of restaurants close by and even a grocery store where we picked up a few things. And we walked to a lovely little park right on the water's edge. I thought our room had a strange odor, but my husband thought it was fine. If we had been staying more than one night I would have complained and asked to change rooms but decided it wasn't worth the hassle. Also our shower curtain had mildew on it, which I realize is difficult to avoid with the humidity in San Juan, but housekeeping needs to stay on top of this.
Staff was very helpful! Great recommendations for food and places to go. Would definitely stay again.
Size of room
Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions-Would stay here again if in the area-Loved the terrace on the top floor, we preferred that to a pool.
Tres Palmas was extraordinarily comfortable, clean and friendly. Everything has been recently updated. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful with knowledge of the area and the available tours, car rentals, etc. It has wonderful outdoor spaces which feel like an extension of your room. The room itself was large and airy with a full kitchen and very large shower and bathroom. Facilities were more than adequate for this small hotel. You never felt crowded or rushed. The ocean is literally steps away, with many people taking their morning coffee across the road to sit on the seawall. The road is local, small, with excellent, raised crosswalks. We never felt concerned about traffic crossing to the beach. A few steps down to the beach and you are in a crystal clear ocean. The water sports offered were terrific. You could even take wind surfing lessons. You need something to use to microwave your leftovers. The dishes are not microwave safe. It was a small thing,but buying some paper plates was all you needed to do.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Tres Palmas for 1 night on a Friday in June. The location and staff at Tres Palmas were definitely its best assets. The staff was helpful and the room was clean. The hotel was right on the beach, and only about a 7-10 minute drive from Condado, an area full of restaurants and shopping. For the price, this hotel was definitely worth it.
Over all great stay and location Not much parking
The lace is on the beach , great part of town
Clean, pleasant staff, lovely facility. Only lack was breakfast offering, weak coffee...
The pictures on the website looked nothing like the room-very very small room.
beachfront veranda and bar rooms are noisy and small. Elevator works when it wants to
Few parking spots available, parking fee even if they park your car on the street
This place has a amazing location and beautiful views. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful . They will tell you where to go how to get there where to eat etc...... Is one of the only gay hotels listed and there was a lot of heterosexual couples staying there . It doesn't bother me but not lots of gays there . And they didn't have a bar or restaurant
It's very convenient to get around in the area. I really enjoy the fact that the restaurants, bars, few other things were right there in the area. The hotel is OK it needs a lot of renovation the place itself but I only stay for three nights. If you're gonna stay for two or three nights that would be fine. The place needs some improvement in term of renovation, painting and so on....I guess you'll see you get there!
Close to the beach Room was very small, not really looking good, no control over A/C.
The location was good, but there was no parking available. You are able to see the beach from a big window from the room. Staff is friendly. Elevators need to be remodeled. Bathrooms were dirty. There was no parking available.
Location is good Bad air , to much noise ,bad elevador
Ocean view from Lobby The room was the size of a jail cell, towels were small, didn't smell fresh and I found women's hair on them. Wifi didn't work , front desk said it doesn't reach all the rooms. I asked to be moved but front desk told me there wasn't any rooms available (on a Monday, total BS) Next day , I was denied a late check out for the first time in 16 yrs of travel. Funny thing is one of the employees told me they were atleast 70% vacant. So I'm confused with I wasn't switched to a diff room with wifi and denied a late check out to 1130am
I didn't like nothing. I learn so much with this stay for next time. These days I counting on booking hotel not being a huge deal, that all hotels should be same level of quality but PEOPLE please don't stay here. Staff - the worst, the worst!!!! Location is good, but not worth it. If you book it you are about to make a huge mistake. Noise from everywhere, ac can't control, cold as hell night and day time. Only soap is what you get in 3 stars hotel!! That's craaaazy. No bar. No unlocked balcony on a top floor. No vending machine. No breakfast. NO GUESTS. NO GUESTS. 25 fee for anyone you want to visit you. Anyone. l had a WEEK booked! Not refundable. I politely asked what we can do. People that work there they are TRAINED to give you imidiately responds that you don't want to hear. They don't work with you. I booked my self other hotel. Holiday inn - few blocks away. Breakfast. Gym. Pool. Clean. 3 stars too! Kayak will get personal email from me about this hotel. And again, except young guy on reception and cleaning lady's, those guys that work there look like one on the street that want your wallet !
The vrach, the restaurant next door Long complicated check in for a place with rooms like jail cells. Tiny bed, bad mattress, worn out sheets. Extra fees for everything. You can hear people from their rooms from down the hallway.
Room was dirty, the lobby was awafull dirty contains, broken furniture.
The staff, very helpful
Our reservation was for two rooms. When arrived at the hotel at 2:AM, they said it was only one. I showed them the Kayak confirmation email, and they provided us with the second room. The rooms were as perfect as they could be. We only stayed one night on the way to my mother-in-law's funeral. We got the rest, that we needed to face the next few days. Staff was very helpful. Nothing.
the location. That's all a) no parking. Only valet , very slow car return. & 15 USD more... b one person for check in and one for check out only. Only one credit card terminal that decline my credit card. No other alternative. I used that same credit card the day before and hours later stillin San Juan ....and it worked perfectly... c) Breakfast at le Papillon. The two girls simply do not use their mouth for even saying hello, good bye. You can say thanks thousand times, it does not matter, they keep on ignoring you d) dinner at the other restaurant. They had a trouble with paperwork and could not serve alcohol...so they spent the entire dinner running around tables nervously...waiters, maitre ...everybody....polite at least but overwhelming....
I loved the view from my window....El Morro:)) Having to valet park. No other option
It was close to cruise ship terminal. Staff friendly Clean Small pool Restaurant a bit pricey No beach For 250 a night I expected more Not a resort, just a hotel...no frills
Location Air didn't work, room was not a good value for the price, bathroom needs updating.
I received everything I was looking for. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good location.
Good service Anything
Hotel is a little dated
Great breakfast, food was perfect. area surrounding hotel, looked a bit seedy. Short of staff at restaurant, but food was great.
Poor. Did not clean the room one day.
Was here for a short, two-night stay after spending a few days in Culebra. The front desk staff was extremely nice when checking in. I forgot my water downstairs at the desk and the employee who checked us in ran all the way up to our room to return it even though it was half full and he could have just thrown it away. They recommended both the hotel's restaurant, Zabo, as well as a local food truck for dinner; as we got in quite late. We ended up at Zabo that night and the food was great, pretty fairly priced, and the service was fantastic. The hotel doesn't have a pool, but the rooftop deck is beautiful with jacuzzis and an incredible view of the city. The rooms are pretty small, but very nicely decorated and clean. Would stay here again for the staff alone. They go the extra mile and really care about their guests!
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was very good and there are lots of restaurants and shopping close by as well as transportation. The beach was a short walk. Breakfast was fantastic and the rooftop conversation areas were unique.
Big surprise! We booked this hotel online without much to go on. nice place. all the amenities of a big, expensive place but so boutique ... and affordable.
Nice hotel with swimmingpool and Jacuzzi. Breakfast was good, service excellent and location good. Nice decor. All the extra tax!!! My booking on www.booking.com showed 667 dollars. When I checked in, I had to pay 823 dollars, more than 150 dollars in tax and service. So don't belive in the prices shown on booking.com!
Good price Nothing
great value everything as listed...no surprises great location, safe tourist area and friendly staff super free coffee machine available all day mini bar in room with more than reasonable prices will definitely be my first choice if I return to PR if you are there for a pre-cruise be forwarned that the breakfast area is small and although the staff are great they were overwhelmed but still managed to take care of everyone with a smile, just plan a little extra time for breakfast !
The "garden" looks nice Doors with a traditional key, very hard to latch, lock or unlock. Everybody was slamming the doors all night long. Not sure how many people that stayed there have made a copy of the key. I've got an elevator shaft in my room. Yes, really. My room was built around an elevator shaft. Bed was on one side right next to the door which was next to the elevator door. Bathroom was on the other side, AC was there too. To get to the bathroom from my bed I had to go around behind the elevator shaft. Also didn't get much cold air from AC, it was too hot and you can imagine all the noise. My room was also oriented to the street where every five minutes somebody stopped their car with loud music all night long. I couldn't sleep at all. Too hot, noise coming from AC, elevator, people talking while waiting for elevator, people slamming the doors, noise from car stereos. I could just have stayed at the airport sleeping on the floor for free. Breakfast was very simple, served outside, in the hot, humid weather. Wind was constantly blowing my napkins and stuff away. Transportation from the airport did cost too much because the hotel was not listed in any zone. Paid $20. The hotel is exactly between the airport and the cruise port, which costs $10 to transfer between. They took a photocopy of my credit card including the CVV code and my ID, which violates PCI compliance BTW, when I asked them for how long they are going to store it, they couldn't tell me when they are going to shred it, probably never. The Italian restaurant near by, I don't even.... Just don't. Never again.
continental breakfast, free coffee/juice all day, cool comfortable room, plenty of areas to hang out in, swimming pool, excellent staff. Not a single complaint.
The art on the walls of the hotel made it really stand out compared to other places I have stayed. It gave the place real authentic character. The hotel satisfied my expectations and needs.
The hotel felt like a home away from home. Very cozy feeling during the morning breakfast. I was not a fan of the steamer, I would have preferred an iron.
I liked the clean, attractive rooms and public areas, especially the plantings in the courtyard. It is a lovely atmosphere to enjoy during breakfast. It took me awhile to learn thatnthe best wi-fi reception was in the reading room, but it was a comfortable place to review my emails.
The hotel was in a perfect location and staff was excelent. only thing was parking.
The location was the best aspect of the hotel - close to restaurants, shopping, etc. Although not directly on the beach, it was very close and it was easy to get to. The staff that worked the evening and night shifts were very pleasant and welcoming. The grounds were very nicely done, and there were many different places on the property to relax. The front desk employees during the day were not friendly at all, and displayed no customer service skills! The "free" breakfast needs great improvement -- finally stopped going down after two days of no fruit, tasteless pastries, and dry cereal. Additionally, the room/bed was quite small for two people.
The hot tub is pretty sweet. Mosquitos, the price, the lack of accessible staff.
The rooms were comfortable and adequately appointed. Decor was eclectic and attractive. The staff was helpful and friendly. The only negative thing I would say is that it seemed to be in not a great neighborhood. There were bars on The windows of most buildings surrounding the hotel and several of the business is required buzzers at the front door to let their customers in as did the Acacia.
Cancelled my reservation without comunicating it with me. I've been traveling for over 15 years and this was the fist time this has ever happened. Most irresponsible booking ever.
Surrounding nature. Lack of elevator and steep stairs - hard and almost impossible to take it up if you have large luggage.Also dark room, and sheets not washed properly.
Large outdoor jacuzzi very well maintained. Friendly staff. Free wi-fi. Close to beach with towels provided. Stained sheets. Breakfast only for those who have lots of time to spare (actually we usually did have). Needed to go to 'At Wind Chimes' to access reception
Loved the location and the overall esthetic of the hotel. Charming appeal and friendly staff. The rooms were not cleaned well. There was an overall feeling that the cleaning crew did not clean the bathrooms and floor well. The mirrors were not cleaned and the glass not wiped down in bathroom nor was the toilet cleaned during routine am service.
Peaceful elegance, helpful staff, good food, walk to beach, near Bebos, bus to Old San Juan, easy to get to and from airport, good view of ocean from rooms. Not a complaint, but something to consider: parking difficult to find on street.
Clean, and looks new. Balcony is nice. Location is just one minute walk to public beach where many people gathers. Rate is not so high comparing to the others. A little far (10-15 minutes walk) from Condad central area (Mariott). I cannot find major restaurants near the hotel. No bath tub, just shower in the room. TV is small, old type.
Unique architecture, well-designed layout affording privacy, laid back setting,.close to beach, in nice section of Condado, a comfy homey feeling Check in at sister hotel up the street
It was right on the beach. Views were incredible. Staff were accommodating. Handicapped parking easily accessible, hotel staff bought a shower stool to accommodate my husband (handicapped room not available at the time). Restaurant on beach! No. The thing that was a concern was that a handicapped room was not available, but the staff indicated they could provide a shower chair and made that available. Very private, not-crowded beach.
Staff was great Lack of. Parking
Location to the airport and the beach. no
