Overview

Both restaurants receive rave reviews from diners
Some past guests wished standard rooms here were a bit larger
With its wide array of beachfront amenities – from lounge chairs to a beach concierge – this luxury boutique hotel beckons to sun-seekers. But if you prefer to leave the sand behind, fishing, kayaking and boating expeditions can be arranged with the hotel concierge. Afterward, retreat to your stylish digs, which feature ocean-inspired decor and come outfitted with coffee makers with Puerto Rican Yaucono coffee, free Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Although recent guests described the rooms as compact, they said the overly accommodating hotel staff and the superb massages from the in-house masseuses make up for this slight drawback. The hotel's two on-site restaurants, MIST ROOFTOP Bar+Kitchen and ZEST PUERTO RICAN GRILL ROOM, also earned high praise for their fresh, locally sourced ingredients. However, if you're traveling with small children, this property is probably not the right choice for you and your clan; according to previous visitors, the San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel is better suited for adults given its vibrant nightlife scene. You'll find the property flanking Puerto Rico's Isla Verde Beach, about 7 miles southeast of Old San Juan.

Water is everywhere at this boutique hotel, from droplets in the reception area to a deluge running down the elevators' glass walls. Guest rooms have feather beds and splashes of turquoise punctuating a white minimalist look, which adds to the under-the-sea experience.

Rooms are sleek aqua-and-white affairs, with polished stone floors, rainfall showers and I-Pod docking stations. Unfortunately, they have little closet and dresser space, and the walls are thin, so noise between rooms can be a problem.
