We stayed in the Mango room, the most economical of their choices. The room was small but provided everything we needed for comfort. Neal was very helpful – when we arrived he showed us around, told us where the nearest supermarket is (the B&B provides water & coffee, but no breakfast). The B&B is a couple blocks away from the...

Coqui del Mar is a romantic hideaway, perfect for the traveler hoping to avoid the cookie-cutter experience that the many generic San Juan resorts can provide. My husband and I waited an entire year after our marriage to take our honeymoon, and we wanted nothing more than to seek out an adventure on our own terms-- not those belonging to...

Convenient location to stay & explore San Juan and the surrounding area. Great resturant within walking distance (Inca Chicken). Managers were very nice & helpful. We'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed a week at Coqui del Mar with one of my girlfriends. Noyda and Neal are amazing hosts! The property and rooms are clean and cute. There are beach chairs, boogie boards, bikes (and more) to use! Not only is Coqui del Mar completely affordable, its probably one of the nicest guest houses in all of Puerto Rico. I...

Coqui del Mar is a pleasant surprise! It's not a five-star hotel but it is clean, roomy, and budget-friendly . You cannot beat the proximity of the beach or the San Juan sites. The sand is about 50 steps away and Old San Juan is a very short drive. We stayed in the El Pescado unit and stocked the fridge...

Nice, clean unit just one block away from the beach. Very helpful managers. Nice and quiet district in the heart of San Juan - away from huge hotels. I highly recomend Coqui del Mar!! It was one of the best places we stayed during our trip to Puerto Rico.

I stayed at Coqui del Mar for four days to relax in beautiful San Juan. Since I was traveling solo I chose "El Mango," the studio room which suited my needs just fine.

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
