Stayed here before and after our cruise in San Juan. Close to airport (10 min drive), cruise terminal (5 min drive), Old San Juan (5 min drive) and walking distance to beach. Super nice staff!! They let us store our bags after we checked out and before we checked in on both ends of our trip. One staff member helped us all of carry our group's 10 bags and wouldn't even take a tip! Him and everyone else on the staff on both stays was super friendly. They printed off directions for us as to where we wanted to go, gave us a map (a real map, not a cheap tourist map) to borrow for the day. We had 3 different rooms for our group and each room was unique and overlooked the courtyard and various common areas on the grounds. Lots of small gardens, a nice small pool with a waterfall, benches, planters etc all in a safely enclosed area that is locked from outsiders. There is a nice bar on premise although we didn't use it. We stayed somewhere else a few blocks away from here last year for about the same price and this was WAY better than that and exceeded our expectations. It's not the Marriott, but for the money its super clean and cozy. The rooms are not old or dirty looking and have more of a comfy cottage feel with clean comfortable beds, nice decorations and flat screen TV's with over 100 channels. The rooms we stayed in were pretty good size too. I would highly recommend this place, and we will definitely stay here again on our next cruise out of San Juan.
We arrived a few days prior to the cruise. Hotel is across the street from ship port. Casino on site.The hotel had our room ready. It was clean and walking distance to everything! They held our bags until we were ready to get on the ship. We hung out in the pool located on the 9th floor and it has views of the port. My husband lost his wallet in the hotel prior to cruise. The hotel found it and called him. I was happy everything was in it! They get Kudos for honesty and integrity. Overall, the hotel room is okay. Considering the amount of time we spend in the room it was great. Location and quick access to the port was our concern. We took advantage and took the ferry over to Catano and toured Bacardi. We walked to the fort and shopped old San Juan. Wonderful restaurants in walking distance but we were told by other hotel guests the food at the hotel was great.
First day we were there we arrived early, check in was at 3pm and we had to kill 3 hours. Manny kept us well cocktailed hahaha. 1 hour later Gladys got us in the room. Mateo was a superb bartender, very accommodating. The place is not a big resort is a very cozy place small place. Not a place for kids, but more for couples that will be coming out of the room only for air wink wink. The beach is great at only a few steps. No taxi needed, we walked everywhere! Sure you get sweaty in the heat but that's part of the fun. Best 7 days spent, I can't wait to return.

A tourist-class hotel, the Hosteria Del Mar features a restaurant, a tour desk, taxi service and a multilingual staff. All of …More
It was pleasant and welcoming from the first moment I arrived, just minutes from the beach and only seconds from restaurants and shopping, but still very quiet inside, except for keeko frogs which I loved. I met some fantastic people at the breakfast nook and would highly recommend this place to anyone.
I unfortunately only booked for 3 days, if I had known how nice it was, I would have stayed longer.
