Miramar is one of the few places in Puerto Rico where you can experience city life. Vibrant art and diverse gastronomy are the protagonists, along with the daily life of the neighbors, who provide warmth and a sense of belonging to your experience. Its historic charm blends the old with the modern and features structures with the signatures of many families, developers, and architects from different eras.
Also, you will find yourself steps away from a vibrant and diverse gastronomic offer, varied museums, Old San Juan, the Condado area, and the recently inaugurated Distrito T-Mobile at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.
The Don Rafa Boutique Hotel & Residences experience goes beyond its building. While providing a very aesthetic space and homey service, its location allows you to get to know the Puerto Rican urban lifestyle and history first-hand.
Miramar is a residential neighborhood, home to little less than 4,000 people and their peculiar way of living and enjoying life. Just by stepping out of the hotel, you will be able to appreciate city life through the daily life of the neighbors, who provide warmth and a sense of belonging to your experience. Catch them crossing to the grocery store, walking to school or chapel, going to work, having a coffee after lunch, or dining at one of the neighborhood restaurants.
Some families have lived in this neighborhood for more than three generations. Their presence in the neighborhood dates back since the beginning of the 19th century, when the urban development of Miramar saw its birth. That is why its streets, structures, and people are living history. Experience Miramar’s vibe and history just by walking through the neighborhood. Its historic charm blends the old with the modern and features structures with the signatures of many families, developers, and architects from different eras.
