Pool party for a holiday celebration made the outside sitting area very noisy, but everything about Serafina Beach Hotel is outstanding, including aMare. The quality of the cuisine is excellent.

The ambiance was nice and the service was pleasant. The entrees, however, were lacking in creativity and flavor and did not meet expectations nor assume the value that was was paid. The highlight was the dessert.

The atmosphere was great except there was a pool next door unaffiliated with people smoking marijuana wafting into the restaurant. The beach scene was beautiful. Appetizers were amazing and several entrees were great. However, our table ordered 3 of the cheese wheel pasta and were very dissapointed. The presentation was amazing, but the food was bland with no flavor. Very mediocre especially for the price. This definitely needs to improve or be taken off the menu because the other food items were great!

Went to celebrate our oldest son graduation with a group of 13. The restaurant provided great service. Christopher, our waiter, was quick, knowledgeable and very accommodating to the group requests.
we tried the Arancini di Riso with Ropa vieja and they were amazing. The Tuna tartar was my wife's favorite and the Filet Mignon Carpaccio Platter was mine.
Everything the group order was really good form the salmon to the hanger stake and the sea bass, all was great.
The view from our table was spectacular since we got in just in time for the sun set and it was beautiful. Our table was towards the back of the restaurant were they have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean.
Had a wonderful time and everyone enjoyed the food and the ambiance

I took my mom for the Mother’s Day brunch they had last Sunday and WOW. The food was amazing, our waitress, Elaine, was incredible and the view itself was breathtaking. Before I made a reservation I had called to see if there were any vegan options and the hostess was kind enough to send me the menu. When I got there I learned that they were not taking orders a la carte, only buffet brunch and there were no vegan options, the chef came by our table personally and offered me the option to order from the menu and would make any option I chose vegan; talk about great customer service. I highly recommend this place!

This is a good but not great restaurant. If you happen to be staying at this hotel or in walking distance then it's worth a shot but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. The service was mediocre, the food was OK, the price was quite high. For the three of us, with three glasses of the cheapest wine, the two cheapest appetizers, three low-end entrees, one dessert, the price was $190. The place is right on the beach so it has a very nice view but there are many beach-side restaurants in San Juan. This is just another one.

Beautiful views of the beach, and the sound of the waves mixed with the music is absolutely relaxing.
The 35-minute wait for the branzino is worth it.
Great pasta cooked smothered in parmesan cheese.

This was a date night without kids before returning to Virginia tomorrow. aMare was on the higher side for what we normally spend for a restaurant, but the food and service was excellent, and the environment was hard to beat sitting outside by the ocean. We were both pleased.

After reading some of the review of this restaurant, I was less than enthusiastic about the reservation and considered cancelling. SO GLAD we didn't! First of all the location is gorgeous and the restaurant is beautiful with one of the best views I've ever seen. My husband had the firecracker shrimp, the skirt steak and the tiramisu, and I had the tuna tataki, the pasta carbonara and the coconut souffle with coconut sorbet. All the dishes were ridiculously tasty and well prepared. We are fairly snooty NYC/Brooklyn foodies and were mmmming and yumming every bite of our own and each others' food. The bill was fine by Brooklyn standards but probably pricy in a broader context. Worth it for the incredible view, the tasty food, the lovely wine, the sunset, the ambiance and the perfect evening. Pop by nearby roof Bar SAGE for a delicious cocktail before or after. Happy night!
