Great hotel in Puerto Rico

Jan 2022 | Marius P
Stayed here for week on a trip booked through TUI. Hotel is located close to the Puerto Rico Shopping center, the more upscale Mogan shopping centre and the beach. Probably one of the best located hotels in the area, since other hotels are higher up in the mountain side. Great service, especially from the cleaning crew. Arranged new years party together with another hotel.

Welcome return.
