El San Juan Resort & Casino, located five minutes from the airport in the hip Isla Verde district of San Juan, is a lush Caribbean oasis that sits along the most beautiful beach in Puerto Rico. A sophisticated resort near Old San Juan that captures the essence of a lavish island lifestyle, this destination is the place to see and be seen. Moderned accommodations feature subtle accents and textures, bleached wood, sensual linens and spacious baths.
Tropical pleasures abound at the most alluring pool complex in Puerto Rico, complete with private cabanas, concierge and poolside dining. At the epicenter find Encanto Beach Club, with a Zen-like atmosphere that creates the ultimate outdoor party scene. Nine award-winning restaurants provide a fanciful assortment of dining choices, from fine Northern Italian cuisine to delectable Southern-style barbeque. Later, when the sun goes down, see and be seen in any of a dozen bars and lounges located on property, and all considered the most popular among Puerto Rico's glittering night life. Then test your luck on a large array of gaming tables or state-of-the-art slots at the casino, while enjoying live music entertainment nightly.

poor customer service on all levels

all the hotel staff are very snotty. the rooms are in need of repair...the only way to get a lounge chair at the pool or beach is to pay at least 10.00 per chair each day or no one will assist you. the gym equiptment is both outdated and in poor working order. not a 4 star hotel...next time back to the Ritz Carlton

Great location, fantastic staff

Just got back from a week at El San Juan with my family. The hotel staff did everything they could to make it a wonderful experience. The restaurants were very good, soma a bit pricey, but worth it. Beautiful beach and pool area. The rooms need some updating and the bathrooms are too small. Had a great time in the evenings, always something going on. Not the place to go if you want peace and quiet. Overall great value, with a renovation to the property it could easily be a 5* property.

Awesome girls weekend

We had an amazing experience at the hotel. After reading some bad reviews about the hotel, I was a little nervous to stay there for four nights, but the bad reviews could have not been more wrong. The staff was so friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy. The pool and beach were so beautiful and relaxing during the day, and the lobby was such a fun party scene at night. The beds were clean and super comfortable. It was the perfect hotel for my friends and I, we are four girls in our twenties. Its probably a better hotel for couples or a girls/boys weekend, than for families.

Fun hotEl in paradise

My friend Renae and I are in our early 20s and we traveled to Puerto Rico for our Spring Break and we loved our stay here. Fun casino vibe with clean room, beautifull pool, all the staff is super helpful and friendly. We felt safe with the accomodations here. We walked to a few local bars in tbe area and the dance club they have in tbe hotel gets raging on the weekeND. We rented a cae through the hotel which is the cheapest way to go instead of taking their tours and we went to old San juan, bioluminescent bay and yunque rainforest, all locations I highly recommend when visiting Puerto rico. Would stay here again!
