After traveling around the island we spent our last 2 nights at the Acacia. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff very warm, friendly, and helpful. Our room was clean and had a ocean view with a balcony that was very nice. We also enjoyed the large hot tob/mini pool outside on the second floor of the building. Note it is luke warm, which is really nice when it can be so hot outside.
I would give it a complete 5 points but for us it was a bit far from Old San Juan. We had already spent a week at the beach in other parts of the island so we were not drawn to the beach close to the hotel. It is a public beach with volleyball, swimming, ect, but also very crowded compared to the beaches around the island. Fof this reason we spent most of our time in Old San Juan which is AMAZING but a 15 minute drive away. Supposedly there is a bus that runs their easily, but we were very happy to have a car to make the trip there and back. Next point is parking is an extra fee and a must if you have a car. We parked illegally for 10 minutes outside the hotel and recieved a $250 parking ticket, FYI.
Bottom line is the hotel and building are incredible and location is great if you want to be close to the beach and in a more local neighborhood. If your primary focus for being in San Juan is the old town, I would try to stay closer to old town.
