Paradores of Puerto Rico

Has anyone stayed at the Paradores of Puerto Rico. They look pretty nice and not as expensive as the resorts.

Brian,<BR><BR>Put paradore in the search block at the top of the page and hit go. You'll get back all the messages that have been posted with that word somewhere in each of them. You'll find answers quicker than posting and waiting.<BR>Although, with the activity on this board, posting and waiting might still give you a good result.<BR>When I first found this site, I did what you did, posting a "Has anyone been to...." message. I did get back a response, but when I did the search route, I got more than 50 threads with my topic in them. I was able to get through and dispose of a number of them, but I got a half dozen that were absolutely what I was looking for, and no amount of waiting for a response to my post would have brought them.<BR>By the way, you are correct in your assumption that the paradores are good looking and less expensive than the resorts. Each paradore must meet certain government requirements to be listed as such.<BR>Check out prtourism.com for a complete list.<BR>Good luck on your quest.

My husband and I stayed in a one a few years ago in San Juan. It looked absolutly beautiful from the outside, but our villa was a total dump! I don't know about others, but I have talked to people that had the same experience. You are problably better off to stay at a hotel as we ended up doing.

d.embody, check your information because there aren't any paradores in San Juan.

They're overpriced for what you get, as hotels are on the entire island. I may not go back to PR, since yu pay about twice the value for hotels.<BR>Gp

Go to PR. Plan to stay a few days at Parador Villa Parguera. If you love absolute beauty and simplicity,along with relaxation and great food, you should have a wonderful time.

<BR>Brian,<BR>By now you will have seen all of the other posts about the paradores in PR, and have seen that the 2 rants above are overwhelmed by all the positive comments from others who have found the magic of the paradores.<BR>I hope you decide to go, and when you get back, post your trip report so others can benefit from your experiences.<BR>By the way, if you don't speak any Spanish, try top learn a half dozen simple phrases -- you'll be pleasantly surprised by the return on your investment while you're in PR.
