I don't like that you have to pay for every little thing. I've
machine is $.25 (make sure you hold the button down otherwise it spits
you out 10 cubes). You have to pay for in-room coffee, breakfast, and
the medicine despencer is $1 for 1 pill. Quite ridiculous. I've
stayed at cheap hotels and had more amenities. I had a bad experience
with a waiter at the Starfish resturant. We came an hour before closing
and he made it very clear that he was trying to leave early, which made
us feel unwelcome, but I understand that could happen anywhere. The house-
keeping staff hardly spoke English, and almost every time they came by,
we were in our room so we never got service. The hotel is also kind of
weird about their designated pool towels. You have to return them at the
front desk each time you want them replaced, and will charge a fee if
you do not return them. Again, understandable, but odd.
BEWARE, Fajardo is a windy town. They have a lot of outside cafés around town and off the water, but it's hard to keep the plate on the table. Also, do not stay in fajardo if you are expecting beaches. Fajardo is a marina town and there are no good spots to lay down a towel and soak up the sun. So be cautious!
The neighborhood that the Fajardo Inn is located in is kind of unsettling. We wanted to walk to a store to buy beer, and two staff members told us that us two young girls shouldn't walk because of the danger. Not sure what would happen. We tried to walk before the sun went down, but we were too unweary to continue to look for the store.
Other than those key issues, it was a very nice facility.
Fajardo Inn was a nice place. It is a beautiful building with an
incredible pool. Although I never got the chance to swim because I was
too busy sight-seeing during my 6 day stay, I did walk down to the pool
one night and it was one of the nicest pools I have seen. There's
beautiful landscape and a swim-up bar. The staff here is extremely
friendly and helpful. I didn't rent a car during my stay, but the
hotel never failed for transportation. It was convienent for the hotel
to have resturants on site. The food tasted and was priced decently.
