Upon arrival there is no desk or person to greet you therefore try to arrive at a decent time when you might run into someone to open the gate, you will then need to search for whomever works at this place to get your room key. There is parking however it is very limited as visitors of the neighboring beach park where ever they please, it is also very tight to back up into the parking spots so hope you have good driving skills and not mess up your rental in the process. There is coffee served in the morning but the breakfast is far from continental, this was very misleading. They only had a few pieces of fruit (apples, oranges), some granola bars and an occasional pastry if you're lucky, we ended up having to go out and buy breakfast each morning and a case of bottled water to have throughout our stay. The room was ok, nothing like the photos on the website. They did provide fresh beach towels each day and had a bowl with sunscreen, aloe and after sun lotion in the common area which was for use by anyone we assumed. Considering they sandwiched in between two beautiful beaches makes sense to have that for clients. Overall the location was the best part, airport is less than 10 min away, beautiful beaches at your finger tips and close to all things San Juan has to offer.

I liked that it was near the beach but there was very little parking as a result. The surrounding neighborhood was run down and falling apart. The “breakfast” was meager with few options. The “restaurant” isn’t closed for construction. There is no restaurant and there is no construction. But there is junk stashed behind a counter and around the perimeters of the property. There was only one desk chair to sit in within the room and the bathroom was only suitable for one person at a time. This was a little challenging for the three of us in a four person bedroom.

We found the property quite by accident. My wife became ill while in Puerto Rico, and I made an emergency trip to get her. We stayed in La Playita for 3 nights, and the staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. They were very solicitous of her improvement. Upon request, they even had the room ready early so she could lie down right away when we arrived. We hope to go to Puerto Rico again someday, and this will be our hotel when we do!
