I stayed here in Jan of 2013 wrote a review stating the place is not what was expected. It's in a good location but the owners need better communication amongst themselves. I showed up and no one wanted to open the gate. The place has a pool, parking and a great cafe a few blocks away. It's 5-10 minutes to...

Friendly owners, location to Old San Juan and beach, and kitchen with microwave make up for the lack of upkeep. We loved the place and will stay again.The bus is just down the street and goes to OSJ bus terminal.Nice to walk on beach and then back on street with a stop at Panaderia Espana!

Very clean and quiet. Nice place to stay and sleep...like home. Next time I will choose El Patio again. :)) There's a Spanish Bakery ( Panaderia España) near the place, with good food, pastry, and wines. Try the caldo gallego soup!

I stayed at El Patio on multiple occasions. It's a great value. The bed was comfortable, you can walk to the beach, the pool is nice, the staff was very helpful every time. If you think you won't be spending much time in your room (which you shouldn't because you should be at the beach drinking pina coladas), then this...

Decided to stay here because we didn't want to splurge too much since it was our last day in Puerto Rico and we needed a place close to the airport for our early flight, and yet still enjoy the town - one last time. The place is conveniently located away from the main street of where all shops, hotels and...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. The room is definitely no frills, but I felt like it was a nice value. To get to Carolina Beach you walk one long block, three short blocks, and across an overpass to the side of the road where the resorts are. Angela is wonderful. Some of the bedding was a...
