Place is beautiful and within walking distance from the beach. The owners are extremely friendly and hospitable. Grocery store also within walking distance, so we were able to make dinner and save money on meals. It felt like we were at home. Some advice: never go on calle loize at night because the projects are located on this street. However,...

We stayed at the Coqui del Mar on the last 3 days of our trip to Puerto Rico. It was a pleasant ending to our stay. The hosts are very informative about the area and they couldn't have been more accomodating or friendly.Our room and kitchen were clean and comfortable.We did not have a car so the location was very...

My boyfriend and I stayed in El Congrejo for a week in early February. We arrived without a plan or itinerary (that's what vacation is, right?), and upon discovering how close we were to a big public (yet sparsely populated) beach, we became total beach bums. We hardly ventured outside of the neighborhood aside from a day in OSJ, and...

Really enjoyed staying here. Noyda and Neal were very helpful and wonderful hosts. They were extremely helpful and they've done a wonderful job with the place. The beach was a block away. The room was nice and equipped with everything we needed, including an ipod dock. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Coqui del Mar was very clean (always my main concern when we travel) and well-run. The property manager, Noyda, was friendly, helpful and easy to reach when we had a question. We enjoyed the neighborhood location which is close to the beach and walking distance to a few really tasty restaurants, and a playground/park. We were also happy to patronize...

We had a wonderful stay here from Feb. 9-13, 2011. We stayed in the "El Mango" which was the smallest of the 6 units for rent. It's a good place for a single or couple who are busy doing things, esp. if you don't stay in your room very much except to shower , sleep and have a snack or...

The guesthouse/apartment is located at walking distance to the beach. There is a local pharmacy close by and many small restaurants at walking distance as well. I recommend to try a Peruvian/Puertorican restaurant called “Inca Chicken”, which is just two blocks away from Coqui del Mar. Coqui del Mar was clean and tastefully decorated. This was my first experience not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you want to experience Puerto Rico like a local while still having all the conveniences of home, this is your place. We make you feel at home. You have private personal space (all rooms have private kitchens and private bathrooms), while in a beach side neighborhood setting away from the crowded tourist areas. You will experience some of the best Puerto Rico has to offer while living like a local, visiting the restaurants frequently visited by locals (no chain restaurants near us). We are in the Ocean Park beach area of San Juan, in between Old San Juan and the international airport. We are 3 minutes walk to the nearest beach. Ocean Park beach is one of the locals's favoites, and also a preferred spot for kite surfing and windsurfers. We are 5 minutes walk to the tourist bus route (which goes to the casinos and to Old San Juan) and walkable to restaurants and grocery stores. Each of our units have full kitchen, free WiFi, cable TV/DVD, Apple TV, in room safes, and an Ipod player. We strive to provide more than expected, and I think you will find that with us, from the beach chairs, or bicycles to the in room safes, there are never extra charges. One of the best things about us is our live in management, Noyda and Neal, who call Coqui del Mar home and welcome you as if it is your home as well. They are local experts and can help you find a great restaurant, plan a special event, or enjoy a chat. Our courtyard, bar-b-que and jacuzzi are great for meeting other guests. If you are looking for personal service and a unique, eco-friendly (we have solar hot water supplemented by electric, ceiling fans supplemented by ACs, and offer recycling), and a clean guest house for a reasonable price, then check us out. We are not a Marriott and offer our own unique sense of quirky and intimate Puerto Rico. Come join us. *Our free parking is on a public street in front of our location. Not difficult to find a spot, but it is not designated parking for our guest house and is open to all. * Airport transportation acknowledges that there is taxi service from the airport. **Free parking is on street parking ... more   less
