The hotel is located close to the airport and there are various restaurant and fast food around it, it is also very close to the beach. I didn't like so much the menu list of the Emigrante or Faccio Pizza, but very close there is another place which was nice " Hotties ". Transportation, If you pay with credit card,... More

The hotel is fine, the staff is wonderful and the facility is newly re-done. I would have given a rating of 5 but I feel that there were a few elements lacking. It wasn't obvious when booking that the hotel is not on the beach. It is across the street. The hotel does provide beach towels, but the fact is... More

This was a great destination. The location of the hotel is perfect, just 3 miles from the airport. The hotel puts you in the center of several tourist attractions like the beach, Old Town San Juan, and Condado.

Nice hotel. Has a outdoor swimming pool with chairs and tables. Restaurant inside of the hotel Emigrante(it's ok). Great restaurant next door named Hotties- food, drinks and service is great. We went everyday. Miss it already. Distance from airport is less than 10 minutes. Can't wait to go back.

We spent two nights in this hotel. A taxi from the airport was $15. The hotel is very modern and the room was nice. I liked the USB ports on the side of the bed frame, it was very handy. You can get beach towels from reception. All staff we met were nice. Now the negatives, our room was located... More

Great location. Beach is right across the street. Many great restaurants and bars within walking distance. Clean rooms & room service is excellent. Airport is a short 5-10min drive from hotel. Uber is available in Puerto Rico, the cabs will cost you more money if trying to go to Old SAN Juan which is about a 15-20 minute drive from... More

This hotel was recently revamped to a hip style and that it is. From our greeting by Javier the bellman, to the insistence they hold our luggage so we can hit right to beach, to the wonderful staff at the in hotel Resturant. Beach is across the street but a good way to save some money. A plus.

This hotel is a gem; it is a beautiful gift to the community aesthetically & it provided these tourists with more than we expected-the outdoor pool is open till 11pm-w a 5 yr old child we always had a fallback plan.

Stayed here for last day in PR back in Sept. We wanted to explore other parts of PR besides OSJ and heard the beaches here were pristine. It's also about 10 minutes from the airport so location was convenient as well. The pictures online looked exactly when we walked in the hotel. Big modern and clean lobby, nicely decorated lounge...
