We went to celebrate my wife's 40th and this was a great property to do so. The food on site is good and reasonably priced for resort food. Drinks were great and Pedro at the swim up bar was fantastic! All the staff was nice and accommodating and made our get away amazing. Highly recommend if visiting Puerto Rico.

Hotel's Favorite
We had a great stay at this hotel, the entire place, from lobby and room to the pool and beach were beautiful, clean and well maintained. The staff at this hotel, from check in/out, Luis at the front doors, he was friendly, attentive and had the best recommendations, he is definitely an asset to this hotel, we ate breakfast at the hotel, food was awesome!! but the wait staff, Wanda and Ida, and others are what made it excellent, they were friendly, attentive, courteous and do their job well, also had several drinks and meals at Ocean Breeze, service from Alejandra was exceptional, she always had a smile, good conversation and recommendations and does her job extremely well, Edgardo was another stand out at Ocean's, and cannot forget Jose, on the beach, setting up chairs and umbrellas, he was great!! this kind of service makes the experience at the hotel worth it, makes this a great place to stay and a good recommendation. Thank you for their services.

The food was delicious, but the service I received from Daniel was over the top! He was very attentive, efficient, and welcoming! Daniel’s positive attitude and willingness to make sure my meal was enjoyable jump started my day and made me look forward to an awesome time in Puerto Rico! He was such a pleasure to be around and I can’t wait to come back!

After reading a lot of reviews for hotels in the area (and even canceling reservations at other locations after reading one too many negative reviews), we opted to stay at the Royal Sonesta. It was an excellent choice! The location is beautiful, the facilities are great, and the staff goes above and beyond. A special thanks for to Mario from pool services and Miguel and Ida from the restaurant for their friendly, helpful, and quick support throughout our whole stay!

Room Tip: Long walks along the beach are a must! And for any swimmers, the water is warm and a bit rough....
