A dazzling beachfront accommodation with breathtaking ocean views, the El San Juan Resort and Casino is a top choice for visitors looking to dive deep into what Puerto Rico has to offer. Perched on the beach in San Juan's Isla Verde district, the resort boasts aptly-named Fantasy and Olympic pools for all guests to enjoy. Meat Market Miami is a fresh take on the steakhouse, and just one of nine award-winning restaurants to enjoy on-site. When night falls, try your luck in the casino or grab a drink in the Lobby. Take it easy the day after at the Edouard de Paris Spa, and try out a uniquely refreshing Mojito Massage.

Awesome trip with the guys

A group of guys stayed at this place for a mini vacation and it was great. One of the best clubs inside the hotel can not go wrong with this place. The drinks were amazing and its right next to affordable food.

Definitely a great experience

The location was great. It was close enough to resturants near by although it was not in the center of San Juan. The rooms were very clean and always made by the time you came back to the room, even midday. Resturants were a bit expensive for everyday enjoyment but there were plenty to choose from. The staff was very friendly and accommodated whatever you needed if they were able to.

Great but expensive location

The hotel was nice. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The TV's were poor quality and the shower was weak. The services by the pool were all too expensive. A corona was $10 for crying out loud! It's not allowed to bring outside food or beverages to the pool area but we snuck it in anyways. But it's uncomfortable to have to sneak around things you know. The beach was great but there wasn't that many things to do in the resort to call it a resort. There are a lot of things to do outside though and traveling outside the resort is safe. I have been to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and Riviera Maya, Mexico and would prefer those two locations over San Juan with no question.

Sales Trip

Clean rooms, great casino Staff and good food. I like that they have a starbucks coffee on site and the pool was beautiful. They also had music in the lobby which added to the atmosphere and made the lobby come alive. I visited teh El San Juan over 10 years ago and it is still a great place to stay. I like the renovations.

Good, Not Great

Pros: - Vibrant Night Life on the Weekends - Free admission to the club in the hotel - Walkable to food and groceries - Outdoor space - Mini-Fridge Cons: - Not much a view from the walk out patio - You could hear the bass from the club in our 3rd floor room - Drinks were pretty expensive ($14) in the lobby bar/casino - The pool was crowded, even though the hotel was not that busy, and they refused to let us use chairs reserved for the cabanas - Resort fee per person - Pay for parking

Quick Trip

My friend and I decided to take a quick 2 day getaway to PR and this hotel was the nicest in the area. It had a mini casino, Starbucks, restaraunts, shopping, and the hottest club in the area all on the main floor level. The hotel itself was very clean and tidy in addition to the staff always being available and helpful they provided us with a late check-out with no charge and held our bags until we left for our flight. We enjoyed this hotel and its views and not to mention their nice pools and beachfront location.

Awesome short getaway!

I thought the hotel was in an awesome location. They had two different pools that always seemed to be busy and the beach was a lot of fun. The staff will take the beach chairs where ever you want on the beach everyday. I loved the bars inside the hotel. There was always something going on. A couple of the locals said that the bars at this hotel was the place to be at night. I thought the bed was comfortable. The rooms needed a bit of an update but it didn't entirely matter since we were not in them much. Great time!
