        Expensive for a hostel ”
        We stayed here for one night prior to joining a cruise as it was the only place available at a low price on Boxing Day. It certainly wasnt worth. Breakfast was included but we didn't get to try it as the girl was so slow we gave up and ate in the local supermarket cafe. It has a pool but it didn't look very clean If I'd paid about £30 then I might have said you get what you pay for. The surrounding area didn't feel very safe. The beach was good.

        Comfortable beds, friendly night staff, beautiful reception/restaurant/pool
        We enjoyed our stay here. It is walking distance to supermarkets and bus-stops, the beach and nightclubs. the night receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly. The pool area/restaurant is beautiful but the food is a bit overpriced. The con with this place is that the showers are very weak.

        Good location, poor room”
        proximity to airport
        I was most disappointed with the my accommodation at the Oceana Hotel. The room was deplorable. The towels were all worn. The second day, they brought us three (3) different colour towels, again all worn. Maid service never arrived until 4:20pm to clean our room. No telephone in the room or even at the front desk for the guests. I really think that place needs a major clean up. Tree leaves falling into the pool with its water very dark. I am afraid that I cant recommend this service to anyone. I do feel treated with the rate I was quoted for this so-call 3 star hotel. I really dont know what's going on... I am experience traveler with 42 years working with three airlines, so I know what guest service is all about as well as quality standards and value for money.

        Not bad for price”
        clean, quiet, vegetarian rest. on location. Most persons at desk helpful but, only 1 person to do all, rest., check in, & help with anything else.
        Had to ask for face towels at first, then clean ones after that, not much area to sit in lobby if not in rest. & you had to eat or move from tables, even tho there was no one else around. They ran out of ice 2 out of 8 days. No butter 6 out of 8. Cont. breakfast was skimpy at best.
        This was not a bad little place for the money conscientious. There were a few things they could have improved very easily to make things a little better. Clean face & hand towels & access to ice without saying, "sorry, tomorrow it will be in". Breakfast could have a little variety, Toast, banana, very small danish & coffee or juice. Every day for 8 days, needs a little help. Pool has virtually no place to lay & sun. Must go on roof for that.

        Cheap & decent to stay at, for tourists On The Go ”
        Authentic atmosphere, 50 meters from the sea, cheap, polite (although weired) staff, away from the crowded tourist area, walking distance to the supermarket and breakfast/dining areas (i.e. restaurants). Quite, rich and safe neighborhood to walk around 24/7 with plenty of patrooling police. Buses run to the old San Juan area regularly or drive your rental. Free parking and free breakfast (that, however, isn't really worth staying in for).
        The place was in a stage of a long-term (meaning slow-moving) renovation project from its original 80's to the ultra contemporary 00's with a lot of touches of expensive new old-looking furniture pieces that don't really look right yet given the amount of cosmetic work that yet has to be done prior to furniture upgrades. No uniformity in their rooms as they all look different inside- which, arguably could be a good thing as well. Take in account hispanic "siesta" and don't expect the breakfast to be fully available at promised 8am. They will start preparing it at 8am. So if you need to get out early- eat at the dining two blocks east of there up the same street. No night-life in that area- need to go to the old SJ.
        This is a very unique place to be at as it offers great price, guest-house-like feeling and a nice location for vacationeers. The main lobby, restaurants, bar and the pool are all located in a very tight spot and make it a cool place for pictures. There's a tree that grows right from the restaurant up through the roof. It's a cozy place to have your siesta. The rooms are not five stars, not even full 3 :), but if you consider that not your expectancy shouldn't be as of a regular ubiquitous western type hotel. It's more like an authentic guest house, inn or even a hostel than a hotel. Our crowd of 25-30 year-olds certainly did enjoy this experience! Would stay there again and recomend to others who like to experience something different.

Rooms were dirty and small,beds creeked even when you if you switch sides at night. TV did not work properly. All in all not worth the amount that I paid, I would value it at $40/night. Thye boast of this swimming pool, you bathroom tub will probably be bigger than that pool. Free breakfast- thye serve breakfast, if you ask for another coffee they will charge you.

        water pressure could be stronger.
        This bed and breakfast is good value for the money. It is located near Ocean Beach in Condado, a safe and clean enjoyable beach. It is also accessible to a bus that takes you down to Old San Juan where the historical sites like the Fort El Morro and quaint shops and restaurants are located. There's a bakery, drugstore and Carribean food restaurant nearby. Continental breakfast is served daily so one does not have to waste time in the am and just go about their itinerary. Beach chairs and towels are also provided. No big hotel amenities, but "homey" and comfortable setting.
