8.0 Very good

9.7 Wonderful
Cons:Excellent hotel but very expensive.
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Outstanding service all around. Only hiccup was the TV in the room that kept losing its signal also trouble with the remote. Otherwise no issues.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was great! Location Excellent it was close to the airport but you didn't hear the airport!
6.2 Okay
Pros:The location is right on the beach, close to the airport. Good views from the ocean facing rooms. We were on the 16th floor and it was great. Lots of restaurants nearby and within the hotel. The rooms are spacious and the bed is comfortable. Great housekeeping staff, very friendly and helpful
Cons:Sand fleas...a tiny bug that bites like a mosquito/bed bug. They were all over in our room. This was before we had even stepped on the beach, so they were there before we came and stayed with us till the end. We had to apply bug repellent to sleep and not be bitten. No activities by the hotel. They charge a resort fees but it feels more like a traditional hotel rather than a resort. Tiny bathrooms No easy access to clothes dryer, c'mon you are on the beach.
8.2 Very good
Pros:The staff, the view
Cons:Sliding door to balcony was hard to open and close.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:What's not there to like?
Cons:There's nothing there not to like!
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Had to spend one extra day in PR after vacation elsewhere, and we randomly picked the IH. We were pleasantly surprised. They let us do early check-in 4 hours before the regular time. The room was very comfortable for all 4 of us, and the beds were super comfortable. The facilities were also great, beautiful pools and of course a nice beach. Will be back for a longer stay next time.
Cons:It's not inexpensive, but still a good value.
6.2 Okay
Pros:The staff was friendly
Cons:This is not an all inclusive resort, it does not even offer breakfast. We do not feel like we got our money's worth.
