Yunque Mar Review

This cute little hotel is just west of the popular Balneario de Luquillo, but the beach here is nearly as nice and almost always deserted. The pastel exterior and balconies dotted with purple flowers add charm, though a sign off the kitschy boat-shaped bar that reads "Welcome to paradise" might be overstating things a bit. Spanish-colonial-style barrel-tile roofs and white stucco walls surround modest rooms that span two floors. The upstairs ocean-view rooms, some with balconies, cost more but are worth the $10 splurge. At high tide the water meets the building off the backyard beachfront, and the adjacent patio offers killer views.
