Not what I remember
Took my kids trying to take them back to their roots but the rooms need a lot of work… the first room toilet did not even flush and was not cleaned moved to a second room where the conditions where not any better sticky rug I was afraid to walk to room with out my sandals stuck it out since it was only 1 night. Mattresses very beat up and stained blankets.

Very frustrating experience!
Very frustrating experience. I booked 2 rooms through on March 19th after our flight home was cancelled. It was around 8pm and almost every other hotel in PR was sold out. I booked online and then called the hotel to confirm bc everything else was sold out and I wanted to be sure it would be ok for us to arrive late, around 11pm. The man who answered the phone told me there were no rooms available and that was selling rooms that were out of service. Initially I was grateful that we didn't drive almost 2 hrs to find out there were no rooms. I asked how to get my money back and he said to contact, which I did immediately. reached out to the hotel several times over the next few weeks, but could never reach them. I emailed and got 1 response from a manager (Gladys Carrero) who said that their system showed the rooms were available. was never able to reach anyone at the hotel despite multiple attempts. I wasted several hours trying to resolve this issue and eventually gave up. So I paid $350 for nothing but aggravation. Definitely will not stay at this property in the future.

We like the convenient location, but the rooms are too old, dirty and outdated. We understand that the Hotel is 124 years old but is not an excuse to give some love and to update the rooms.
