Review roundup: Very cute bar/ resturant … a little Riad feel… but an absolute must for any cocktail lover. The place they invented the pina colada – doesn’t get more authentic to justify the most calorific drink ever! Even if you have already over done the Pina coladas every day of your holidays and it’s your last day – you still must have one (or three 🀭) (and should have actually taken more pictures! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Review roundup: We had heard this was the best bar in Puerto Rica but when we arrived we found a small, busy quite quiet bar. Maybe it was an authentic bar of maybe we hadn’t yet found the not to secret door that takes you into room after room of dancing and bars and lots of fun! Well worth a night out or even just a drink if you aren’t wanting a big party night.

Also places I don’t have any pictures from…

La Conche hotel: Fab for sunbathing on the beach and lunch at the hotel – don’t have to be a guest, small rental fee for sun loungers – can then have your drinks ordered drinks to it! 

La placida area – the locals crazy night out on the weekends – loads of tacky bars and dancing. We happened to be there in Spring Break so was extra crazy and felt quite old!!

Oceano – AMAZING resturant by the sea front. My favourite place. Gorgeous views and the food is incredible but is pricey. But worth it – make a reservation and ask to be on the water front (they do have indoor area upstairs if raining but sitting outside is part of holidays!) 

Vanderbilt hotel – princess hotel! Great for ocean view quiet cocktails
