Parador Vistamar
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Quebradillas
Reviewed 26 February 2013

The view from the hotel is awesome! You can see the mountains and the ocean at the same time (Guajataca). The buildings are old w no maintenance. The room is big, but w an '80s TV... 2 local channels and the control was not working. Oooold shower w cold water only!!! Standard customer service at the front desk... Bad at the restaurant. On top of all, it was the most expensive of all hotels we stayed during our trip (DoubleTree by Hilton in San Juan, Howard Johnson in Mayaguez, and Treasure Island in Cidra). :(

Room Tip: Higher the floor, better the view of course. Beautiful pictures from there.

We decided rather late in the evening to stay at this hotel that our guidebook described as one of the cheapest options around and "boring." We were amused to find a young, very friendly, hip guy at the desk who gave us a first-floor room for less than $40, as well as some good banter. We were pleased to find a perfectly sufficient room with a comfortable bed, a clean, spacious bathroom, and a balcony with a jungle view. The next morning, we were astonished and delighted to find a stunningly gorgeous ocean view just outside our door. The grounds are beautiful, with the clean pastel yellow building contrasting nicely with the deep blue ocean and bright greenery. There is a pool and patio around the back, not that well maintained, overlooking the ocean and some very unkempt grounds and a ball court. We didn't try the pool, but we had fun exploring and taking pictures of the tiny lizards that were scampering around. The older atmosphere and mild lack of upkeep made it more charming to us, as we were not seeking or expecting a 5-star restort.

The breakfast was not much, just some toast with butter and coffee, but it was unlimited. They have a nice selection of local books for browsing through and available to purchase in the lobby.

There was a dog who apparently sleeps in a dog house in the yard below the balcony of our room, but it was not bothersome, just a little odd.

We had a lovely time in this little hotel. True, I wouldn't pay $100 for the experience. But for a "cheap, boring, roadside motel" it was EXCELLENT and definitely worth the $40. I will definitely be back if I am lucky enough to pass this way again.

This is my review of the Parador Vistamar en Quebradilla
1. They charged me 85.76 extra because of my 17 and 67.98 for 14 this is additional to the room charge.
2. The pool was really dark green, not clean.
3. The pool chairs were broken, the plastic strips broke they kept the frame and added a couching to disguise it.
4. The picnic table had no umbrella, this meat no shade it is a really sunny spot.
5. In the room there was a coffeemaker but no filter or coffee just a cup.
6. No fridge, no microwave and four closet spaces.
7. The restaurateur opened at 400pm and they had a big sign no food in the rooms or pool area.
8. No internet in the room. You have to sit on a wooded bench in front of the reception desk in order to use your computer. There was only space for three small people at any time.
9. No room service no phone poor signal for Sprint Company
10. No towel at the pool and if you take the ones in the room they ask that you don’t.
11. The television was an old 20 inch.
12. No ice machine you had to go to front desk
13. The beds had holds in the middle making it hard to sleep you got stuck on the middle sinking in and begin overweight not good.
14. There was a sign that said you cannot eat in the pool area what the table is for. And you could not eat in the rooms.
15. The room was dark poor light.
16. The television control did not tunnel on/off the television.
17. They had a basketball court and a tennis court no ball or equipment.
18. The area was dark. And poor vending machine no food around.
19. Just the bathroom mirror and the water came out thru the side when you took a bath the floor got the shower was broken would not change from sprinkle space. The bathroom window was toward the hallway. If you left it open am not sure that a tall person could see in.
20. The air-condition is place right at the angel of the bed so even putting the vents up it still face the bed and it would kits the face of the person laying on that bed.
21. Personally I really don’t recommend this place and it really not a 2 1/2 star maybe a 1 you need to really look into it I came back home a night before I could not take it I rather be home. My kids where not imprecise with anything we decide to do check out Saturday night.

Beautiful view to the ocean, but a lot of things has to be fixed to be a nice place to stay. And be careful when you buy a Group-on and offer you a bottle of wine, 'cause they will give you the worst!!

It has a beutiful view but a lot things has to be fixed to be a nice place to stay. First price is average but the problem of this type of hotels or paradores is the Island Goverment and the tourism company that do not support this type of bussiness. If these places had a good administrator and has a good deals that promote the inside tourism then things work much better. Believe me the hotel has a beutiful view but a lot of stuff needs to be fixed
