Nothing special....at all

I wish I had better things to say about this hotel. Online, it looks amazing. The hotel itself (room, lobby, etc) was nice on the eyes. The service was well below our expectations. From the time at check in, we weren't given details on needing a band for the hotel/pool, nor given any details that those bands change colors. We were handed this cheap card that our names on it and was told that will get us into the club Brava. Our friends (on the same trip) only received 1 card for a party of 5. We were stopped numerous times on our first day there about bands. So we proceeded to get bands, nevere were told about the bands being changed daily. So we proceeded to get stopped numerous times the next day as well. Some of our guests were visiting PR for the first time and now have a bad taste about PR. One of our guests went crying to the manager about the service after we were asked to leave the hot tub over the wrong color band. I understand there are rules and we are fine with that! But the approach and they way you go about is what makes the difference. This was my second time in PR and the hotel we wanted to stay at was closed for Beautification project. We paid more to stay at this hotel. Never again and I would never recommend this hotel to any friends.

Wonderful Weekend Get Away!

Exceeded expectations! The flight was on United, direct and regular class. Because the cost was low, we assumed a lower-tier flight but were pleasantly surprised. The 5-star hotel was only 5 minutes away and the cab driver took us to the supermarket to stock up on some groceries and liquor since it's not an all-inclusive resort. The hotel was amazing. There was a mambo band in the lobby the first night so we got to dance! Enterprise is across the street so we were able to rent a car one day for $50/day. It allowed us to hike the rain forest - also amazing! We wanted to see the bio-luminescence, the Flamingo Beach and go horse-back riding in the along the beach but it rained but we will be back! So much to do there! More than we ever imagined.

Perfect location

Martin at the poolside bar made our trip a blast. Martin ensured that we were satisfied with our drinks and food we offered, as well as kept up entertained by filling us in on Puerto Rico history. Win win with him so we omy sat at that bar daily. Luis helping Martin was very efficient and courteous as well... best team by far. The hotel is perfectly set on a strip walking distance to several authentic restaurants that were not expensive at all. Also a market place, CVS, gift shops and corner store less than 10mins walking distance from hotel. This was awesome because breakfast was kind of pricey... $18 for spinach omelet.. but it was delish. Would also recommend that you take a bottle with you if you drink to cut down the cost a bit....either way Martin mash'd the drinks worth the price. The hotel being right on ther beach is the best.. Awesome Hotel!!!

Overall pretty nice

Hotel was great with the exception of house keeping. Under the bed had several items of trash that were not ours and there was cheese on the desk chair. I asked them to clean the next day and the trash and cheese remained. I even pulled out the chair so they could not miss it! I feel confident that the beds were made but the sheets not changed for who knows how long.

What's to Love

Located on the beach and in Isle Verde, this resort is in prime location to enjoy all that San Juan has to offer.

 

What We'd Change

The only thing that could make this hotel better is an all inclusive plan. While you'll have to shell out for kid's activities and Internet access, the services are so great you won't mind.

 

Why You Should Go

Tasteful luxury without a hint of stuffiness, with excellent service, food, drinks and a stellar location.

Hotel Description

El San Juan Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton: Meet at the Intersection of Old World Class and New World Luxury

Live it up at the El San Juan Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton in the city's fashionable Isla Verde district. This elegant resort combines old-world charm and non-stop entertainment with a popular nightclub 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.

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.
