We have stayed at this hotel several times. We had three rooms booked and when we arrived they only had one. The manager made arrangements at another hotel for the night. Obviously, not ideal but they corrected their mistake. The hotel is nice with a great location right on the beach!! Nice restaurant on site overlooking the ocean. Would definitely...

This hotel has an amazing location. Not on the beach, but the ocean crashes against the back deck and it is so beautiful. This place reminds me of a beach hotel that you would have stayed at in the 50's. It has some minor problems like keys not fitting the doors and lights not working; however, it is charming and...

The hotel was a good value. The rooms were clean. The continental breakfast was good with an excellent ocean view just feet away. The restaurant and bar staff were very helpful and friendly! I loved the fact that there are beaches within 2 minute walk.

Off the grid top notch place to get authentic roasted pork in Puerto Rico.

If you want authentic roast pork at a fraction of the cost you have to go to the Hacienda La Tormenta...

This is a very dated, run down small hotel (more like a motel) with no real view of the ocean as advertised. The restaurant sits right on the sea, so that may be what people refer to in other reviews. In fact, the restaurant is the best part about this hotel. Great local food and fun atmosphere. We stayed in...

The Ocean View king had none of the views they showed. There were wires etc running through your view. Nothing special. And nowhere is mentioned that the restaurant is closed two days a week (a restaurant was the major reason to book it) There was no toilet paper holder in the bathroom, music was channeled into the courtyard/hallway (why I...

We stayed at La Playita on our first and last nights on the island. Great place- right at the beach, though hard to find(we missed the street a couple of times despite GPS) due to poorly hidden street signs. The bar restaurant offers local fare and has daily specials. Parking can be iffy ( few spaces near building) esp street...

La Playita is on the same beach as the InterContinental hotel, just on one side instead of in the middle. I arrived just as the bar was closing, but the staff were accommodating and let me grab a glass of wine before I hit the sack. The hotel has easy beach access and you're able to walk to a number...

Awesome beaches to either side of the hotel, but no direct access to them - walk about 50-60 feet to one and no clue hot to get to the other one. Restaurant has an open deck over the beach, so the waves crash underneath you - nice and relaxing, unless it rains. There is a smoking section near the bar,...

This small and charming hotel has an excellent location. It is a very beautiful place. The room was very clean and confortable, as well as the bed. The restaurant was awesome. The staff was very friendly. I loved it!
