Bottom Line

This hotel sustained damage to many guest rooms and common areas during Hurricane Maria in September 2017 but is open and operational. Travelers should note that the island of Puerto Rico was significantly impacted by the storm. We will update our review as soon as we have more information. On a quiet road overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Ocean Park, the 12-room Numero Uno Guest House has a laid-back, simple charm. Rooms range in size from modest basic budget-friendly styles to stylish two-bedroom apartments. This three-pearl hotel has a restaurant serving Caribbean-fusion lunches and dinner either in the charming dining room or overlooking the beach. With a clean pool, beachfront location, and walkable proximity to Ocean Park's shops and restaurants, Numero Uno Guest House is an ideal pick for families and couples. For those looking for more historic charm, CasaBlanca Hotel in Old San Juan has more character, is closer to tourist attractions, and has a lower price tag.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A laid-back beach hotel with simple style plus a popular restaurant

Numero Uno Guest House packs plenty of modern charm into a small package. A stucco wall surrounds the hotel, keeping the beach noise out and giving a serene and tranquil vibe to the small pool terrace and lobby area. It's not all sedate here, though, and while there aren't a ton of places for guests to socialize, Pamela’s Caribbean Cuisine is situated adjacent to the pool and is a popular destination for travelers and locals alike. The restaurant is usually busy and draws a loyal following. As an added bonus, Pamela’s offers beachfront dining for those who are interested in a more romantic atmosphere. While Ocean Park Beach is public and busy, it is not usually overrun, and the hotel has plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs for guests to use. Given its intimate guest-house vibe, don't be surprised to see that most guests are couples here. 

Location

A 15-minute drive to Luis Munoz Marin Airport, 10-minute walk to popular San Juan restaurants

Numero Uno Guest House has an enviable location off the main drag in Ocean Park. Set at the end of a quiet side street, the hotel has lovely views of Ocean Park Beach and the Atlantic Ocean, and guests can step right out onto the white sand. Numero Uno is a 10-minute walk to popular restaurants in the neighborhood, including Kasalta Bakery, Pirilo Pizza Rustica, and Mango’s Ocean Park. There's also a 24-hour Walgreens nearby. Just to the west is Condado, a posh South Beach-style neighborhood with hot foodie restaurants and luxury stores. It'll take 15 minutes to reach the eastern edge of that neighborhood on foot, or about five to 10 minutes to Condado's center by car. Expect a 25-minute drive into historic Old San Juan depending on the time of day. The hotel does not provide airport shuttle, however, Luis Munoz Marin Airport is 15-minute drive from the property.

Rooms

Clean and modern traditional hotel rooms and apartments, some with ocean views

Most of the 12-rooms here are simple, but of adequate size, private, and clean. Decor is minimal, and includes white walls, tan tile floors, and turquoise accent walls that add a little extra character. There are a few pops of color, including blue and beige throw pillows. Rooms come with queen-size beds, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and some sitting space. A small closet with an iron, plenty of hangers, and safe provides additional storage. Rooms come with writing desks, mini-fridges, and ice buckets. Some rooms have views of the ocean, but many don’t have any views. 

The two-bedroom penthouse apartment is a nice upgrade. Spacious, stylish, and modern, the penthouse has ample outdoor sitting space with a balcony off the master bedroom and a large patio at the entrance with gray wicker couches adorned by orange cushions. The penthouse has a small, but fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. The sober color scheme of dark browns, light wood tones, and cream, feels lifted from a West Elm catalog.

Bathrooms are small, featuring standing glass showers or shower/tub combos. Most bathrooms have white walls with a blue-and-green mosaic accent wall for color. Guests can expect toiletries and ample towels, but vanity space is limited in most rooms. The bathrooms in the penthouse are spacious and well-appointed, with the master bath featuring a whirlpool tub. 

Features

Overlooking white sands of Ocean Park Beach, restaurant with Caribbean-fusion menu, and free continental breakfast

Numero Uno Guest House may be small, but it has a good number features to keep everyone happy. Ocean Park Beach sits just beyond the hotel's high walls, and while the beach is public, it’s not over run. The hotel offers beach waiter service during the day and has ample umbrellas, lounge chairs, and tables for guests. A small pool is located adjacent to the restaurant. The pool terrace is small, but clean, and has a few wooden benches for lounging.

One of the hotel’s standout features might be the tables set up for beachfront dining from Pamela’s Caribbean Cuisine. Sunsets can be a real highlight. Guests can also choose to sit in the spacious dining room with long banquets bedecked in turquoise cushions or standalone wooden tables. The restaurant serves a free daily continental breakfast that includes fresh fruit, coffee, cereal, and pastries. It's also open to the public for lunch and dinner and serves popular Caribbean-fusion dishes. There's also a small bar in the restaurant with a handful wooden bar chairs serving beer, wine, and mixed drinks.

 Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, though guests coming with cars will have to look for parking on the street.
