  • Nice gathering place to relax, sit on a bench, eat some take out food, and watch the people. Good shopping nearby, and many food options to explore.

  • Great ocean view, beach, bar and amenities. You walk out right on to the beach. The beach is beautiful and clean. The rooms are a bit outdated but clean. The rooms have no air circulation so your clothes, mask and towels never dry. However, the rooms are air conditioned and you can regulate it yourself. There is no refrigerator or microwave in the room. You can rent one for around $25. The rooftop bar and restaurants are very nice but the pool there is very small. Overall a good stay with comfortable beds.
  • Plans Colon is always very nostalgic for our trips to Old San Juan. Always plenty of options for drinks, food and shopping nearby. The scenery is beautiful and a great place to relax for a few minutes before exploring. Great opportunities for photos as well.
