Sun & Rain & Jungle & Beach (& a Bottle of Rum)

A travel blog entry by sql_spice


... and claimed a lovely palm tree-shaded spot on the beach.

We're not huge beach people- when we travel, we tend to gravitate towards the sights and experiences that are unique to the destination. And really, a beach is a beach; while lovely, they are everywhere. And I'll fully admit that as someone with the neurotic (well, I say "quirky") tendency to experience as much as I can possiblly cram into my trip (to ensure I'M NOT MISSING ANYTHING!), sitting on a ...

... which are cooked, then smashed, then deep fried) and arullos (fried sweet plantanes) - you get the feeling.
When Randy had to work one evening, we spent an evening with his parents, who do not speak any other language but Spanish and a few bits and pieces of English. We communicated with facial expressions, hands, feet, and our saviour: Google translate. Man did that help! Type in what you want to say and it spits out the Spanish equivalent. Then just try and pronounce it ...

San Juan

... way we saw the Cemetery of Maria Magdalena de Pazzis , the Bastion and the Embrasuras Troneras.

Inside the fort we saw many levels to explore. We headed for the top level for the views. At this point we were very close to the Glory. We got great views of the coast and Old San Juan. On the other levels we saw tunnels, the dungeon and lots of storage rooms. When we left the fort we walked to the Plaza Colon with a statue of Christopher ...

Flux Pavilion - Freeway Tour

A travel blog entry by canrico

I was looking forward to the Flux party for over a month. I arrived at 11pm, just
in time to see the beginning of DJs from Mars. They had a knack for mash-ups of classic
songs, with electro beats. The next hour was spent belting away anthems with the guy or girl next to you, whom you’d just met. A great vibe was in the air and everyone seemed to be there for a good time. The venue was ...

... through immigration and went to leave the ship. Tough process. LOL. We were the first ones off the ship! Our guide met us and we joined the other participants in the van. They were all off of the ship that was docked next to us. Their ship was only in port until 1:30 while ours wasn't leaving until 6:00 pm.

We drove to the starting point of our adventure. Randy and I are doing the rappelling and ziplining. We have ziplined before ...

    Diamond Dud


    When we checked into the hotel, the receptionist was extremely rude. She told us to come back later. When she gave us a room to look at, the elevators didn't work! The room was one queen bed instead of the two double beds we had paid for. When the receptionist was informed of the problems she continued to talk on the phone and ignored us. Another person was at the front desk and didn't help us.

    Part of the hotel was in partially dismantled state on another floor.

    Dirty. Dirty. Dirty. Do they ever clean the rooms?

    Don't believe "Expedia's" hype!


    I just read Expedias "glowing" review of the Diamond Palace hotel. All I can say is thank God for the internet, so people can exchange "true" information.

    Worse hotel ever !!!!!!


    We needed a hotel for 1 night in San Juan before we started with our cruise. I looked at several options and decided to go far this hotel.

    When we arrived and went up to our room we were in shock what we saw.

    One of the beds was not suitable to sleep on because of matrass with a big dent in it. There was no remote control forthe tv, no hot water !!!!!!, we smashed 2 cockroaches and the window could fall out any time. We complained at the front desk but they could not care less. And then the breakfast if you could call it a breakfast. Some twinky's and a glass of watery juice. We paid USD150 for this awful experience and we know what we talk about. Both me and my wife work in the travel industry and we take at least 3 holidays a year but this was the worst hotel ever.

    Every thing about this hotel was atrocious!!!!


    I have visited the Condado area in San Juan plenty of times in the past. On my last trip I stayed at the Diamond Palace Hotel & Casino.

    Bad place to stay


    I stayed there for almost 200 dollars a night in February. The rooms were in horrible condition. The bathroom floors were filthy, the walls were dirty, the carpet smelled bad, my sliding glass doors would not lock and my window had no curtains. I had to stack up chairs and throw a comforter over them for privacy. I called the front desk and though pleasant were unhelpful. One morning housekeeping walked into my room at 7am without knocking or notifiying me they were entering. I spoke to manager which had nothing more to say than I'm sorry. The parking was located behind the hotel and you had to walk through the casino to get inside again. Being pregnant, all the smoke was horible. But it was either that or walk three blocks to get around to the front again. The lobby was so small that it also was constantly filled with cigarrette smoke from the casino. It was madness! That was it for me, I checked out immediately, all after just one day and two nights.

    Diamond Dump, indeed!


    I agree with the Diamond Dump review! We arrived last Saturday, February 7, 2004, and were told that our room was not ready. Granted, we arrived before the check-in time, and therefore, we waited by the pool. Come 3pm, we were told that our room was ready, but when we got to the room, it was still filthy. The maids hadn't even touched it yet!In addition, paint was peeling off the walls and doors in the hallway. The maids were very friendly and apologetic for not cleaning our room, but the front desk staff were left to be desired. Thankfully, the beds were firm, so that was a consolation. They are listed as a 3-star hotel, but I grade them lower than that.

    Diamond Dump!


    Stayed at this hotel Dec 27 2003. Our family stayed one night prior to a planned cruise out of San Juan. Made reservation online. What a dump!

    Great Value!


    The hotel is a great value for anyone on a budget. It is conveniently located for sightseeing and beach going. I've stayed at the hotel several times through the years. I first stayed there when it was called the Dutch Inn Hotel. The service is top notch. The rooms are not the best, but as another reviewer indicated the rooms are spacious. You can have the convenience of a hotel with a casino without the expense.

    Nice hotel in good location in condado area


    my husband and i stayed at this hotel from oct 3-7. the hotel is in a good location of the condado area. a block away from the beach & across the street from the marriott. we stayed in a suite on the 12th floor.

    Good location but not the fanciest place


    This moderate hotel has a prime location a block from the beach, next to 24-hr Walgreens and practically across the street from the big Marriott. It is your standard tower hotel - the rooms are large but basic (bathrooms could use some updating). There is a small casino downstairs and a bar but nothing that will amaze you. Basically this is a good place to stay if your budget does not allow for one of the fancier places but you still want to be right in the middle of the action in Condado. You are able to walk to a lot of nightlife and Old San Juan is a quick cab ride. The beach here is really nice too, so if you are just looking to hang out there, you will not be disappointed.
