About

Located a short block from famous beach (a 2 minute walk), between Ocean Park and Condado in Metro San Juan, Oceana is a Boutique Hostal featuring plenty of amenities, in a unique environment, with the personal touch and care of its owners. Oceana's charmed ambiance is not intended to compete with the synthetic magic of the cold and impersonal chain hotels. Instead of their big lobbies or endless pools show off, Oceana offers a warm, cozy, arty, but down to earth realm, for the at ease traveler that really enjoys life’s simple treats and sincere hospitality.

Very Nice place for an overnight stay

3.6 on February 21, 2016

We stayed here for one night prior to a cruise that left out of Puerto Rico. Overall we were pleased with our stay. The place was nice and clean. The AC didn't work very well in our room.


Perfect location for the beaches

3.0 on October 26, 2013

Competitive pricing for convenient location. Rooms were adequate for sleep. Bathroom a little small with suboptimal water pressure. Very close to beach and super friendly staff. Would consider returning for location and price.


Just an Overnight Stay

Staff were very helpful ...with luggage, wake-up, calling taxi, area information. Great location, a block from the beach. Facility itself is older and worn - but pass up the steps to the roof and the view!


Not as good as add appears!!

1.2 on March 13, 2011

room dirty, sheets, towels worn and torn. No clean sheets when stayed a few days. Had to ask 3 times for clean linens. Matress pad torn with bed bugs seen!! Breakfast was juice, coffee, 2 pieces white toast and banana. Supper food way overpriced for serving size, etc. Tried to sit by pool/garden, but eaten by bugs. Pool hadn't been cleaned and was full of moss.Arrive before 6p or you will not be let in. Good location for beach and bus.


interesting place

2.6 on January 20, 2011

looked very nice when we arrived,lobby, outdoor patio and dining. was easy to communicate with innkeepers. We enjoyed the night shift barkeeper and waiter. Very friendly and pleasant. Our room was not the best, tub had peeling finish(paint?) on the bottom of it, bath mat was dirty, so we laid it aside and used a towel to stand on after showering with flip flops on. Head boards of the beds were free standing from the bed its self and would hit against the wall if you turned over in the night. I thought them to be dangerous...better to have no head board as to have them loose and ready to fall on you while sleeping. Breakfast was a piece of fruit, toast, small sweet roll, coffee or juice. Last morning there my sweet roll had mold on it and you could tell it has been sitting and gathered moisture. It was close to the beach, a beautiful beach and not far from a market, bakery and Starbucks( :) ). A nice walk for sure. We stayed for the price and we found it on B&B. We decided it could have been worse..you get what you pay for.


Good deal

This place is ok, although the towels were old and it was hard to get another one, there was only 2 pillows, although they gave me another 2 when I asked for them. If you're on a budget it's an ok place to stay.


You get your money's worth.

At less than $80 per night during high season, Oceana was definitely worth the money. However, this is not the place for folks who aren't willing to put a little elbow grease into their trip to Puerto Rico. The room was cleaned pretty much every day, and the staff was generally very helpful in helping us navigating the city. However, the breakfast was paltry (one toast and a banana), the Wi Fi didn't work, the security seemed a bit extreme, and there was one night when we waited outside the hotel for 20 minutes for the staff member to wake up and let us in the building. You cannot beat the price, but just a word that it's not for vacationers hoping to be extra lazy during their stay.


Pleasant and Friendly

I found Oceana Hostal Playero on your website when I googled inexpensive bed and breakfast san juan. Little did I know I was going to find the best location - close to ocean, bus routes, great restaurants - along with a welcoming and friendly staff. I have already recommended the Oceana to several friends and will certainly return myself.


don't bother

this hotel is dirty, noisy, badly managed, and serves lousy breakfast.


bed and breakfast/ bed not mad/breakfast a mess

4.0 on March 03, 2010

We stayed"Run of the House" it was off the left of the main floor. I was ready to take what I get because it was last minute. Our bed was not made daily, it was never swept and if it had been done I could not tell. We did have plenty of towels so that was a plus. The first night I had gone out to the front desk and expressed that our room was really hot and I did not think that the controlled worked properly, his comment was "Well it is hot here" after that I was very shy about discussing other issues we had, like our bed not being made daily, I just made it myself. One day on the way to beach we asked for some ice for our little cooler, we did get it the first time easily, however when we asked a different worker for the same ice he looked at us in a odd manner and said "Ice?" yes ice I did get it form the other gentlemen, he did finally get it to us. I wish I would have gotten the name of one of the workers there, he was very nice and worked very hard to get everyone the morning continental breakfast, but he was the only one that had shown genuine service. I think the place is cute and would and should be a much nicer experience if they get rid of all the help except for the one that I had mentioned.
