We had a wonderful experience and kick off to our adventure on the Isla de Encanta. Patricia, Tomas, Julito and the entire staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Access to both beaches with provided small cooler and beach towels was perfect!

This hotel is right near the beach and has amazing views. We stayed in the ocean view room and were in total awe of the view every morning. The breakfast is the standard fare of bagels and cereal but since it's free, I can't really complain. We are at the restaurant a few times and saw crabs running around on... More

My stay was just overnight and it was very pleasant. The staff at the front desk was very helpful, but the staff at the bar not so much. Sitting in the back of the hotel is the bar overlooking the ocean. Which was great, but the staff seem to not been able to engage the customers in an timely manner.... More

Just came from a 7 day cruise from some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. Decided to stay in Puerto Rico one extra day because of a previous visit to puerto rico thought it would be the topping on the cake.

I arrived with low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised, the rooms whilst pretty basic have all you need, with fridge, internet, hairdryer, comfortable beds. Despite previous complaints I had no issues with hot water so long as you gave it a couple of minutes to heat up. It was great being right on the beach and very close to... More

Stayed here and enjoyed it very much. This hotel is near the water in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. We had a handicap accessible room with a small refrigerator. The best part was the bed, which was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on! Our room was very near the bar/restaurant on the first floor & we never heard... More

We stayed here for one night before a cruise. Our room was clean but we were unable to have any natural light as our room had parked cars an arm's length away. There was a restaurant with a nice view, nicer in the evening. The buildings flush to the hotel were abandoned or in a stage of being repaired. We... More

We had a 2 night stay in Feb 2015 with a confirmed reservation in hand thru booking.com.they said our reservation was cancelled. That never happened.
