Vi kom upp och beslutade att ta oss till köpcentret iaf då A plötsligt inte klarade sig utan att iaf "köpa något plagg" innan hemresan. M fick tvinga på en tröja och ett linne, då A ledsnade efter att ha köpt en ny träningströja. Alldeles för mycket folk! Och sen var det en massa julpynt …
05.00 blev vi hämtade av taxi och åkte till flygplatsen söderut på ön. 06.55 gick planet och vi fick byta plan på Barbados, samt lasta om planet i St Vincent. 12.00 var vi framme i Puerto RIco och denna gång letade vi upp en buss som tog oss från flygplatsen.
Vi käkade lunch när det var dags för bussbyte, och sen dags för tidskrävande resa till …
... the corner!
As soon as we stepped off the plane, a flood of familiar smells hit my nostrils. Suntan lotion and coconut oil. I could see the palm trees swaying in the breeze outside the airport windows. I have a lot of memories from Puerto Rico that always come back once I reach the airport. I grew up traveling to the Island. My grandparents ...
... surf and isolated salt lagoons. These form natural wading pools - when the waves crash hard enough on the ocean side, the water flows over the top of the formation, creating hundreds of mini-waterfalls - quite unlike anything we've experienced in our travels.
Another interesting stop was the Laguna Tortuguera, Puerto Rico's only natural freshwater lake. This is a preserve area as well, and is home to many bird and plant species. Of course, only a very small ...
Having just unpacked from a wonderful month-long trip camping my way across the Big Island of Hawaii, I embarked on yet another adventure around the world. This time, I was headed with Ed, Wanda and the Brothers to the Caribbean. Nearly a week in Puerto Rico would be augmented by a 7-day cruise among some of the Lesser Antilles (also known as the Caribbees). But first, we had to fly to San Juan, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Miramar San Juan
I stayed at Hotel Miramar Feb 27-Mar 1 2004 and had a nice experience. I am not a high maintenance traveller and if you are, this may not be the place for you. If you want nice, clean but basic accomodations, then this is the place. Its in the city and doesn't have a pool but if you have a car or know the bus system, its not a big deal. I had a rental car and just drove to the beach and also to other sights around this island. This being, I spent minimal time in the hotel. The room was old, but clean and the bathroom was newly renovated. The staff was friendly. This is definitely a good place for a night or for the PR savvy traveller. I would definitely recommend it if cost is an issue. And yes, I would stay there again.
Not for me
Its old and very worn out. I thought it would not be a big deal to spend one night before the cruise and save some money. I was wrong.
Hotel Miramar just ok
We stayed one night Jan.31st,it is not in a very nice location and there is atpresent day and night roadconstruction noisenext door going on.Otherwise a clean and moderate hotel.
Don't let the web site fool you, this hotel is nothing like the web site! I spent 4 nights at Hotel Miramar and it was the worst 4 nights I've ever spent anywhere.
We reserved a room in early November for 12/17 stay prior to taking a cruise. When we arrived they said they did not have any rooms???!!!! I had confirmed the reservation in the morning of 12/27 before we left. They said "too bad we are booked and cannot accomodate you!" This was 11:00 p.m. at night after a long flight. They said all hotels were booked except for a hotel around the corner. SInce we were appalled and had no choice we had to stay in this disgusting "Fleas bag hotel" that was very unsafe and scary, let alone no shower. We had prepaid for Hotel Mirmar already mind you. The next morning I went to see the manager-who they said was not there. The desk clerk said "What can I say-but don't let it ruin your vacation"! Do not book a room ever with this incompenant hotel though LOdging. Very Unreal experience and now I am struggling to get my money back.
For our last night in puerto rico, we stayed in hotel Miramar, it was by far the worst hotel of our entire trip.
Miramar --Very nice hotel
Just back from Thanksgiving vacation in Puerto Rico. Our first night we stayed at the Miramar Hotel. Very clean, quiet and well-run hotel. I recommend it.
Excellent vacation stay
Wonderful service. Very clean!! The continental breakfast was a nice touch. Lovely little resturaunt/bar. Located in a nice, comfortable neighborhood--walking distance to beaches, casinos. Old San Juan just minutes away. Kitchenette well stocked. Grocery store just down the street. Great value overall.The website accurately depicts this boutique hotel. I would stay at this hotel again!

My family and I were very inpressed about this little Hotelon the Miramar area, Unfortunatley the Check in-out, Is a MESS, you get charge if you get there before the check in time which is at 7:am , but thr comfort of the rooms are good they were on the proccess of remodeling they should be finish now, there was no rest. and the only problem i found is that you can hear VERY CLEAR the traffic and people talking, and the music from the nerest bars.(actually theyeven provide a safe deposit box on each room0 but they don't work : (
