I booked a last minute get-away to Puerto Rico. Because I was traveling alone I wanted to make sure it was a safe place for a young lady to be by herself. I logged onto TripAdvisor for help in choosing a place to stay and found Coqui del Mar. The location, right by the beach, was amazing. The amenities are...

Hello! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and that it worked out for you to see the Bioluminescent bay. It's definitely one of my favorite things to do (if the moon conditions are right). We would love to have you back - we should have the jacuzzi installed by then! Take care - Rob

We stayed in El Mango. It was pretty small, but overall, served our needs. The bathroom was a challenge because the shower's water pressure wasn't the best and you can hear everything that goes on in there. The neighborhood was pretty sweet. I really liked just walking around. The owners were so nice and friendly. We used the grill a...

Buenas dias! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and that we will see you back (and returning guests always receive 10% discount). Our El Mango Economy studio is definitely on the small side, but we do offer much larger units with more privacy...maybe on your return visit you can check out one of these? And you will be happy to...

My four adult daughters and I spent two nights at Coqui del Mar and really enjoyed our experience. Our unit was very clean and had a spacious living/dining/kitchen area, one bedroom, and a small bathroom with a shower and an actual fish tank (with live fish!) as a toilet tank. Sleeping space was a little tight for five adults, as...

Buenas - I'm glad you enjoyed our El Pescado unit and our unique fish tank. For extra space for 5 persons, I definitely do recommend booking early for the El Sol 3 bedroom/3 bathroom unit. We hope to see you back on your next trip to La Isla Encantada. Gracias - Rob

My husband, 8-month-old daughter and I stayed for one night in La Concha honeymoon suite and loved it. It was the perfect home base for us.

Located steps from Ocean Park/Condado Beaches, this fairly priced guest house was perfect for our stay in Puerto Rico, Close shops, restaurants and Walgreens, 5 min walk to the bus line, one half hour (tops) from Old San Juan, very convenient. Thanks to Noyda, very friendly on-site manager, for helpful planning information and for making us feel so at home....

Dealing with Robert was good, Noyda is a dream and I loved the unit. Very clean and comfortable. Especially loved the little garden patio and the short walk to the beach and grocery store. Loved the good WiFi. Very comfortable and wished I could have stayed longer.

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
