Sorry, not much
Room wasn't ready, wasn't clean after being ready, apathetic staff in morning especially.Was right on the bus line to town but when we asked how to get to old town, he said "a taxi".
The courtyard had wonderful trees nestled near the Bistro and Villas. The pool was also relaxing, with the waterfall. Make sure to eat at breakfast in the morning: though not terrible filling, the coffee is superb, and the atmosphere in the dining area is authentic San Juan.
I was disappointed that we were not allowed to check in a couple hours early. Another group of tourist experienced the same thing. Also, the hallways were very narrow and there is no elevator. It seemed as though every was at a 9/10 scale from the real world. While in general the staff was helpful, there was an amateurish nature to their work. Also, only two towels were provided.
The hotel is small,but romantic.
For the price was excellent....very close to all attractions...great restaurant just a few blocks out...fast food joints just a few blocks away..located in a residential area...like it a lot...
Pool is like a fish tank...very small....
The staff were all friendly, helpful and professional. The place was also just 2 short blocks from Condado Beach, one of the best in San Juan. The staff also run a killer vegan bistro, Pura Vida, on the first floor of the hotel.
While this is one of the cheaper places to stay in San Juan, the "Hostal" in the name is a misnomer. You will likely still be disappointed about what you get for your money. The bed was rock solid, the bathrooms are tiny, and there is no internet available in the rooms. All for about $110 per night. That being said, I would stay there again because I just can not fathom paying $250-300 to stay anywhere in San Juan, which is the range most other places were asking.
The hotel is just a short walk to a nice beach. The outdoor pool is small but very nice. The restraunt / cafe on the first floor is very nice. Hotel staff is very nice.
The hotel rooms were in serous need of major renovation. Bathroom was in very poor shape. Mismatched tile in shower, yellowed vanity top, pealed paint, crackd mirror. THe hotel is 3 stories and has no elevator.
The hotel is two blocks fromt the beach.
They charged me more than expected according to my internet agreement. The lamp on the night stand didn't work; there was no water in the shower; the air conditioner in the dining room didn't work, and neither did the fan; the breakfast wast very bad (choice of coffee or juice). They placed us in the third floor and there was no elevator. Will never go back there!
i like the sense of privacy..the staff was very caring and willing to help you in anything i needed. even thou i didnt not enjoy of the complementary food it smelled great. room service was available at any time as needed. no major complaints. I will definetly stay @ oceana again!
This is a small hotel near the beach in an excellent part of San Juan.It is nice for a family of 6. It was clean and had a kitchen. All pillows must be upgraded, needs pots to cook with. Otherwise, it's a decent place to stay if you are not looking for luxury in the Villas.
Night manager must open door for you. Only one night manger, jack of all trades at this hotel.
Most of the staff was very helpful. The room was quite spacious. One of the staff members carried my 50 pound suitcase up to my room for me since there isn't an elevator. It's a block from the beach!
My traveling buddy and I were both itchy from the beds, so it's possible there were bugs in the linens. The towels provided were extremely thin and worn, and we actually ended up buying our own towels to use. There was limited parking in the area.
one block from very nice beach, easy walking distance to food and shopping, pubic bus stop right across the street will take you all over san juan.
The price was good, the room was clean and we enjoyed the ambience of the bar/pool area.
The one (1) front staff person was unable to wait tables, bartend and act as receptionist/front desk clerk all alone adequately. The hotel truly needs one more person working. There were patrons who were unable to enter the hotel without waiting for several minutes for the door release button to be pushed by this poor, overworked individual.
Hotel is good. Villa-rooms are awesome! 4-5 people can easily live in a such room and even never meet each other. Vegetarian cafe is inside. Some lizards and cockroaches are around the Hotel, but it more depends on the country with it's climate but not the Hotel.
We liked the location and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the courtyard, pool and waterfall. the air conditioning worked well.
Our room lacked linen for two of the three beds, towels, as well as basics for the kitchen. All the dishes etc had to be washed again, as they were sticky and dirty. the breakfast was very basic-coffee, tea, toast and bananas. Dinner at the hotel was expensive and not good value for money. the room was not cleaned or garbage removed during our three-day stay.
This is a great location to beach just a block away... Great walking distance to the city and plenty of food and shopping.
The staff never came to clean the room and we were there for two days
