Puerto Rico accommodation

Although many people’s idea of Puerto Rico accommodation starts and ends with one of the big hotels, accommodation on the island ranges from small family-run guesthouses and hotels to massive all-inclusive spa resorts.

While the big hotels and resorts can make an ideal vacation for many people, those who are more adventurous want something different. Here we look at the different Puerto Rico accommodation options and what you can expect to find from them.

Small hotels and guesthouses

Wherever you look on the island you’ll come across small hotels and guesthouses, many of them family run affairs. Although they don’t offer the same kind of facilities as the big hotels, they can more than make up for in terms of service and comfort.

If you’re planning on traveling the island then it’s likely that you’ll stay in one of these places, but be warned – always book in advance to ensure you have a bed for the night as they are very popular with both tourists and Puerto Ricans.

House rental

One option for Puerto Rico accommodation that is often overlooked is house rental. Often surprisingly well priced, house rental allows you much more freedom that staying in a hotel, although you’ll need to stock up on groceries yourself and you have to provide your own room service and cleaning.

One feature of many houses in Puerto Rico is that they don’t have glass in the windows. Because of the heat and humidity, many houses have bug screens and storm shutters – the latter particularly useful during hurricane season (June-November).
