Great place
The hotel was perfect. Check-in was easy and quick, they texted us the lock box combo and were in our rooms in seconds. The room itself was quite large with a living room/ kitchen and a spacious bedroom. The hotel itself was very clean and the staff was quick to help fulfill our requests. We were in a great spot, right next to a beautiful park and 1.5 blocks from the beach. There were many great restaurants within walking distance and at no time did we feel unsafe. Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for our visit to PR.

Spacious Apartment
Spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment with kitchen area. Free parking inside the fenced yard. Nice bath and beach towels. Our family of four stayed quite comfortably for 5 days. The location is alright. The north and west sides are more tourism. You may not want to walk to the south and east if you don't want to see some of the problems on the island. Some more tables/desks in the apartment can be more convenient. But overall, it is a nice place to stay for our vacation.

Beautiful little space, I enjoyed my time here. Check in was very simple, everything was well communicated. Beach is right there, scooters on the corner for your using (can be pricy but fun to ride.) 10/10 recommend this place, surrounding area is a bit rough but the people were nice and helpful.

10/10 Exceptional

I liked the area, beach being super close, private entry to facility and easy parking across the street. I think the keys should be labeled to which ever lock they open, I got soaked in the rain guessing which key will open the 3 different locks. And the tower fan blew out hot air , maybe replacing it. I also never got a reply in my email when I asked if the property had a washer /dryer, so maybe putting those details in the description will help.Overall it was a pleasant stay and I will definitely stay there again and highly recommend :)
