Yunque Mar was recommended to us by our travel agent. We stayed at the hotel prior to us departing on a cruise from San Juan. Edgar and Sandra- the owners, went out of their way to make our stay (before and after our cruise) comfortable and relaxing. The hotel is nestled in a residential area about 30 minutes outside of San Juan near Luquillo. The hotel is right on the beach, and within walking distance to about 35 kiosk type restaurants all along the beach. Sandra and Edgar serve a breakfast every morning to their guests with a choice of ham and eggs, pancakes, coffee and orange juice. There are two beautiful suites overlooking the ocean , The next time we visit we most certainly will want to book one the two suites. The General Manager of the the hotel is William, a true gentleman who also does his best to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Down side is that there is no formal restaurant within the hotel. We were told by the owners that they were in the process of opening one in the near future. Getting around is also a problem if you don't have a car. To get to the local town of Luquillo,(about 2 miles from the hotel) you either need a car or a cab. Cabs are hard to come by, so renting a car at the airport would probably be your best bet. Local foods can be sampled at one of the 35 food kiosks located within walking distance of the hotel. A group of us that were staying at the hotel prior to our cruise ate at a different kiosk every night. The food was excellent and reasonable in price. Would definitely come back, but next time with a car rental. Keep up the good work Sandra and Edgar!!

Room Tip: If you can, ask for the ocean front suites.

we wanted to spend a couple of days before and after the cruise in Puerto Rico but away from San Juan. This Hotel turned out to be the perfect place to relax and spend time on the beach(es) nearby. It's a 40 Minute drive from San Juan airport, we rented a car a Thrifty which was really cheap and great for visiting the natural forest which is only a few miles away from the Hotel.

The Hotel is very nice and offers a breathtaking ocean view as it is located directly on the beach. It was so great to fall asleep with the sound of waves lapping, and the rooms were clean and spacious with a/c and an ocean-view balcony. If you're in for something fancy, this would be the wrong place, but the staff are very friendly and professional and willing to help with whatever issue should occur.

The pool was a bit disappointing, it looks far better on the pictures and the poolside showers did not work, but hey, with the ocean less than 20ft away why care for the pool?!

Room Tip: We booked online. Ask for a room on 1st floor.

If you're more interested in seeing the rainforest, sampling the Playa Luquillo kiosks, and not high maintenance, this place is more than adequate. We had a rental car; the Rainforest is about 10 min drive from the hotel. The kiosks are 2 traffic lights away, you {could} walk. BTW, #2,12, 21 are my favs.The hotel is right on the beach, they have a pool, free breakfast which is decent. Our room had a king size bed, balcony overlooking beach/pool, cable TV, and an A/C that would freeze you out! Shower had hot water with good pressure and the place was relatively clean. William, at the front desk, spoke perfect English, very pleasant, and very accommodating. If you want luxury, and wanna pay $250/night, go to El Conquistador; otherwise, Hotel Yunque Mar is nice find.

We walked down the road through some vacant lots filled with trash to the only part of the useable beach, only to find the water had quite a bit of trash in it too. I did not feel safe with my wife nor my buddy who was travelling with us. I would not suggest this place to anyone.

This is not the place to stay if you are looking for "fancy" accommodations. But if you value location, comfort and cleanliness you can't go wrong here. Reasonably near to San Juan (old town and great restaurants) and Fajardo (great food and ferry access to Culebra and Vieques). Adjacent to El Junque rain forest (a must see). We enjoyed the island by day and slept well at night. The next day, after breakfast provided by the hotel, we repeated the pattern for a very enjoyable week.
