We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Yunque Mar as part of a birding package with Birding Puerto Rico so I do not know the exact cost. I do remember looking at the prices on the back of the door and thinking they were reasonable. The rooms facing the pool were much more expensive and I really did not see why. The Hotel is located on the ocean in a residential area. There is very little sand right behind the hotel and at high tide the water is almost to the hotel steps that go down to the beach. There is a good swimming beach a mile or so down…a long walk or a short drive. The neighborhood seemed safe enough and we always went for a walk before bed. They tore down the abandoned building right next door so now there is a clean open lot…I am told it was not pretty and the hotel seemed very happy to improve their view.
Check in and out was hassle free. We had a standard room which had wifi, satellite TV, a large bed, and a balcony with a couple of chairs. The entire hotel, including our room was very clean. The hotel has a basement with a pool table and a lounging area with a bar. There is another indoor/outdoor lounging area in the back facing the ocean and this is where your free breakfast is served and where you can come get ice for your room from behind the bar. The pool looked clean and well kept and there are some lounge chairs around the pool for sunning. The area out front has a nice garden area with flowers and some chairs to sit on. There is always someone there and we were able to get some beers late one night.
The breakfast was basic but included a few choices. I had eggs and bacon one morning and a breakfast type sandwich the next…both were good. The coffee could be hotter. They do not serve other meals on a regular basis. Our guide arranged for Sandra to cook us dinner one night and it was great.
The main reason to stay here is the close proximity to the Rainforest and we took advantage of this for our birdwatching trips each morning. We were able to find many of the endemic birds of PR with the help of our guide Hilda Morales. I would highly recommend this hotel to birdwatchers or others that want quick access to the park…it could also be a nice quiet get away at a reasonable price.
