My husband and I stayed here for the wkend before leaving for our cruise. The room was a little smaller than I thought but it was fine for 2 days. I would definitely stay at this property again. Nice!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We agree that our location, about mid-distance between the SJU airport and the San Juan cruise ship docks, makes it ideal for a pre or post cruise stay. We look forward to hosting you again.

It's not very easy to find, like some previous reviews have mentioned but the owner, Rob, communicates so well and gives a heads up about problems you could potentially run into. We had a little bit of a late check in but Rob made sure to accommodate us efficiently. We'll be staying 3 nights here and we already love it!...

Great place to stay in San Juan. It's one block away from the beach and close to attractions. They treated us and our group amazing and always catering to our needs.

I stayed here in November and everything was great. The decor had and "island" feel, all the way down to the fish in the toilet tank. :) It was in a nice, cafe location, minutes from the beach. The hot tub in the courtyard was very pleasant in the evenings. No complains!

Enjoyed our visit at this little inn. Great walking distance to beach and restaurants. Felt safe. This is a good value for a 2 or 3 days. Parking was never a problem. Highly recommend a room with an air conditioner and mosquito repellent to stay in the city.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The caretakers Noyda and Neal were so helpful. We really enjoy staying in a neighborhood instead of a hotel.

I loved Coqui Del Mar guesthouse! As a solo female traveler, this guesthouse was ideal. It was walking distance from the beach and from restaurants. They provided a great book of personal tips that were very helpful. They even had little baskets of bug spray, sunscreen and aloe (which was amazing after my sunburn my first day in Puerto Rico)....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you want to experience Puerto Rico like a local while still having all the conveniences of home, this is your place. We make you feel at home. You have private personal space (all rooms have private kitchens and private bathrooms), while in a beach side neighborhood setting away from the crowded tourist areas. You will experience some of the best Puerto Rico has to offer while living like a local, visiting the restaurants frequently visited by locals (no chain restaurants near us). We are in the Ocean Park beach area of San Juan, in between Old San Juan and the international airport. We are 3 minutes walk to the nearest beach. Ocean Park beach is one of the locals's favoites, and also a preferred spot for kite surfing and windsurfers. We are 5 minutes walk to the tourist bus route (which goes to the casinos and to Old San Juan) and walkable to restaurants and grocery stores. Each of our units have full kitchen, free WiFi, cable TV/DVD, Apple TV, in room safes, and an Ipod player. We strive to provide more than expected, and I think you will find that with us, from the beach chairs, or bicycles to the in room safes, there are never extra charges. One of the best things about us is our live in management, Noyda and Neal, who call Coqui del Mar home and welcome you as if it is your home as well. They are local experts and can help you find a great restaurant, plan a special event, or enjoy a chat. Our courtyard, bar-b-que and jacuzzi are great for meeting other guests. If you are looking for personal service and a unique, eco-friendly (we have solar hot water supplemented by electric, ceiling fans supplemented by ACs, and offer recycling), and a clean guest house for a reasonable price, then check us out. We are not a Marriott and offer our own unique sense of quirky and intimate Puerto Rico. Come join us. *Our free parking is on a public street in front of our location. Not difficult to find a spot, but it is not designated parking for our guest house and is open to all. * Airport transportation acknowledges that there is taxi service from the airport. **Free parking is on street parking ... more   less
