Miramar Hotel San Juan Reviews
Hotel Miramar, Miramar,. Puerto Rico Dec 16, 2015
We woke up very early on the banana boat ready to disembark and have fun in Old San Juan. After customs we took a taxi to Miramar to drop off our luggage at Hotel Miramar. Leaving the taxi in front of the hotel I had to walk over to next door and check out a neat old church in disrepair. That was the 1908 Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel; that changed hands several times before it was abandoned.
Check in was at 3 PM but they were nice enough to keep our luggage in a locked room. There was a convenient bus stop close to the hotel where we paid three quarters ($0.75 USD) for a bus ride to the bus depot in Old San Juan by the port. The town was dead on that Saturday morning with most of the shops closed. Slowly Old San Juan came to life as we walked the streets, checking out the neat old colorful buildings. We made good use of the free trolley service also.
After a long full day of good experiences we had to return to the Hotel and sleep cuz our jet was taking off in the morning at 07:20 AM, San Juan time. We stopped and waited at the Old San Juan bus depo, then for a small fee the bus took us back to our Hotel. We went next door for a quick dinner and we were back at Hotel Miramar for the night. Sleep.
To early at 05:30 was our wake up call and the taxi the hotel called for was here at 06:00. Quickly we arrived at the airport. Check in and security was fast as the did not require the removal of shoes. I unlaced and removed my special boots as they never fail to trip a metal detector. The US Customs (yesterday) and the airport security had no problem with the duty free liters in my checked in bag and all was well. Nothing between us and boarding except another duty free/tax free liquor store. We had to stop. With two to four bottle purchase you get a free carrying case and they put on a plastic seal on making that bag just an extra carry on. I got the 4 pack of .750 liter of great rum that's not available in the states over liters of rum found in the states; so my smaller bottles are exotic Caribbean rum in Texas.
