Amazing Getaway

Although under renovation this time of year, El San Juan Resort & Casino was definitely the perfect choice for us to vacation! Everyone was friendly and very accommodating. While only one swimming pool was open, it was very well kept and clean. The beach access was very accessible and easy to reach. Archie's Rentals on the beach right outside the Resort is the best for Jet Ski rentals. Great Spa located on the 10th floor, was very relaxing with the massage services. Also if you are looking to get a personal VIP Snorkeling experience in Puerto Rico, check out Pine Grove Surf Club. Just a bit of what we enjoyed and I share so that others can experience an amazing time!

The hotel itself was nice as far as the lobby and shops on main floor.The room wasn't the cleanest. When we first checked in, there was hair on the bathroom floor and sink. Also the comforter had stains on it. Not that we watched that much tv but at night when we turned it on, every channel was fuzzy. Paid 17.00 for 2 beers at the bar. Our breakfast on the terrace was 93.00 for the 3 of us to eat. The Galleria restaurant was good for ice cream and pizza. All staff was friendly and the beach area behind the hotel was really nice. Casino was small but not too crowded. A lot of local restaurants with in walking distance that were reasonably priced. We booked a snorkeling excursion/catamaran and were told to be infront of hotel at 7-715am. We were not picked up until 830. Other than the wait, it was worth the 100.00 pp.

Hotel Description

El San Juan Resort & Casino: Meet at the Intersection of Old World Class and New World Luxury

Live it up at the El San Juan Resort and Casino in the city's fashionable Isla Verde district. This elegant, completely refurbished resort combines old-world charm and non-stop entertainment with a popular nightclub, European-style casino and some of the best food in San Juan. The beachfront hotel, surrounded by 15 acres of landscaped ground, invites sun worshipers and adventure seekers to plunge into fun and relaxation on its two miles of tropical shores.

Sparkling blue waters and a pristine beach are the perfect spot for lazing the day away, but for those seeking an adrenaline rush, try the jet skis, banana boats or parasails. A huge pool complex offers a swim-up bar, Olympic-sized pool, spas and waterfall, all set against a lush garden backdrop.

When night falls at El San Juan Resort & Casino, hit the slots or have a go at roulette. The hotel's 13,000-sq-ft casino is an Old World oasis with sparkly chandeliers and waiters in tuxes. Don't miss the Club BRAVA nightclub, frequented by trendy locals. If you need a break from the dance floor, head upstairs to the Ultra Lounge for cocktails and conversation. Fantastic dining is standard at El San Juan. From classic Manhattan fare at The Palm to modern Caribbean dishes at Koco, each meal is worth savoring. An on-site Starbucks ensures you're never without your morning latte or afternoon pick-me-up.

In need of serious relaxation? The Edouard de Paris Day Spa, located on the 10th floor of the hotel, promises to calm both body and mind with massage, facial and body treatments. With five private-treatment rooms, couple's nook and a Salle de Relaxation, you can achieve inner and outer peace. Splurge with an in-room massage to really unwind.

With all the things to do at the El San Juan Puerto Rico, you might not be spending much time in your room. But when you're there, you'll love the spectacular views. We recommend the Garden Lanai room, complete with private balcony or terrace and overlooking the stunning tropical gardens.
