Lonely Planet review
If you wanted luxury, you’ve come to the right place – the catch is, you’re 20 years too late. Hidden under the cobwebs of the lackluster modern-day Oasis is a once grand dame of Puerto Rican paradores. Down on its luck and seemingly bereft of guests, the place today has the air of Miss Havisham’s house in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, though the Italianate pool still glistens invitingly and the staff try hard to plug the gaps (of which there are many). Framed testimonies on the wall highlight favorable reviews from years past; the most recent dates from 1984. Get the drift?
