... 5 minutes before or after you passed the spot. (he said us with our Polish / South African backgrounds should be fine in this country).
Another day, when Randy was at work, Sonia took us shopping in a big American style mall. Anna Maria found a lot of pretty clothes, and I found a cool blazer, and had already spent my extra cash on the forced Kindle technology update in any case.
Randy is also driving us to the ferry port! Next stop: the islands of Culebra and Vieques for 5 ...

Salsa in Old San Juan

... ride tour through the distillery I learnt all about the family, the history of the famous white rum and how it is made. It was an interesting tour and as it is free (with free cocktails) who can argue? I tasted two 'newer’ flavours, which were a pineapple fusion and dragonberry. Refreshing and tasty.

Back over to San Juan for a spot of lunch at Raices Restaurant – a ‘touristy’ local ...

I also passed by the Cementerio Santa Marķa Magdalena de Pazzis (in other words - a great big cemetery). The cemetery was on the opposite side of the wall down below the hill so I was not able to get up close ...

Goodbye, Culebra! :'(

... us---for now!

The rest of our day was spent relocating ourselves to Rio Piedras (after packaging the boys and sending them off on the train to their destination) and settling in again at Dream's Hotel. We were growing quite fond of the place by then. Mostly, we were just glad that places were starting to look familiar. We even took a pit stop at a used book store on the way back and Deb found "Black Coffee" by Agatha Christie--her second book ...

    A Wonderful Time At Atlantic!


    October 3 - 6, 2003... I really don't understand what the big fuss is about, I had a wonderful time at atlantic, from clean sheets to hot water and the staff was more than friendly/helpfull. I do admit the room is small, but i loved the view from my window. The atmosphere at the bar is friendly, although if you're really into the nightlife come here only for the bar, check out the other clubs in the area. All in all my partner and i had a fabulous time, the drinks were reasonably priced, and the food was decent.

    EGAD! Marriott up street is what I would do.


    Where do I start? The rooms...very small, but okay and I thought clean.

    It's a nice place to stay


    My boyfriend and I are from Manhattan NYC. It was our first trip ever to Puerto Rico. We did a lot of researches for hotels in San Juan. We did not book Atlantic beach hotel until we came to the place. We really like the place because it's so close to the Ocean. The room is clean.

    The staffs are very generous and helpful. The only thing we are disappointed is the music was on and on even after midnight (Saturday).

    If you are used to the sleep with the loud music, this hotel might not be the place you want to stay.

    Nightmare on Vendig Street


    We'll of course the rooms on my last stay were extremely dirty. I had my jewelry stolen from my room and management told me, I should have rented the safe and pushed me along. The police arrived and filed a report. We'll, I'm in New Jersey and not planning to go back soon to go to court. The only good thing that came out of this matter is that me credit card credited me for the stay. They must have looked a there track record to see that this establishment has had enmourous compliants.The bar area is a great place to hang out with freinds but don't stay overnigt.

    Gay people come in all shapes, sizes and colors...


    It was my last day in Puerto Rico. I was born and raised in New Jersey and this was my first time ever in Puerto Rico. I felt like crying because my flight back home was only four hours away so I decided to have a few drinks..... It was a beautiful....early March....and I thought I'd use the restroom first because I drank a lot of water that day......As I proceeded to handle my business, not even a minute went by and the owner threw the door open and asked me what I was doing there......I told him I was using the restroom before I sat down for some drinks.... and his response was " well, you can't bring that bottle in here"....I have no idea what that was about, and after the embarrasment I just felt like leaving but, I stayed for a few drinks anyway. ......Basically the moral to my story is.....Not all gay people are queens ..I am a very masculine, straight looking guy......The Atlantic Beach Hotel staff is rude and arrogant....and they pefer to cater to queens....Stick to the bar ....they have a lovely view of the ocean.....also, stay away from the drama queens...the one's that give you plenty of attitude if you choose not to socialize with them....I prefer to drink alone..

    Gay people should NOT stay there


    Well, we travel quiet a lot, but this place is terrible. Because of previous reviews we could not decide wether to go there or not and we were happy that we stayed there for 4 nights only and spend the rest of the time (8 days) in a much nicer guesthouse in Ocean Park. The 125 $ (all in brown colour "decorated") room was tiny (just able to walk around the bed), because of the dirt we could not look out of the window and you could not open it as well, you can not turn off the (very noisy) A/C (they told us to cover it with a towel, but they give only two towels to each room), there was black long hair on the bedsheets (we know, sound like a joke), the floor was only cleaned were you can look at - underneath the bed and drawer we found food(!!!), the elevator worked only once in a while, (we did not find anything that was renewed or remodeled or refurbished), the stuff was really unfriendly, the restaurant and the whirlpool does NOT exist anymore (but they are still promoting it). And the best of all: they told us on the phone (and they make publicity in the gay press) that its gay clientiele only - but right next to our room was a family with kids (screeming from 7 in the morning). Also (as said in other reviews) you are not allowed to bring anybody to your room. Sorry (and we do not know why people could write a positive review about this hotel), but all this is not worth staying there and it is not even gay friendly.......The bar on Sundays is still the place to go, but there is NO reason to stay at this hotel !

    Bring in the wrecking crew!!!!


    This place is the worst dump I've ever been too. I can not state my opinion any stronger than to say that everything should be dragged out of the dump, and placed in a real landfill.

    From the plumbing that does not work, to box springs and mattresses that were falling apart and the hostile employees. Cart them all away.

    Atlantic Beach Hotel Doesn't Swim!


    From the get go, it was a nightmare. Dirty sheets on the bed, used condoms in the closet and needles and other drug paraphanallia in a bureau drawer. Welcome to the Atlantic Beach Hotel! But the real culprit here is the staff; cold, impersonal and rude. Clearly the paying guest is the enemy. While the bar is fun and the location is prime, the hotel is like something out of a B grade horror movie with a Spanish twist. I wrote the owner to express my concerns. My effort fell on deaf ears as I never received a reply. Learn from my mistake and find another accomodation.



    I have travelled the world and have never experienced such bad service or such nasty accomodations (this is coming from a person who has lived in third world countries in the local communities).

    Come for the bar, but avoid the hotel


    My boyfriend and I stayed here in March, 2002 for 8 days and nights. The bar is fine with lots of hot locals and visitors. However, the hotel should be avoided.
