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.

Great vacation

Just returned from a great vacation. I was a little nervous about this hotel because of some of the poor reviews but let me say don't believe everything you read this hotel was great. The room had good space and very clean. The pool was beautiful and the beach was great and all steps away from my room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I didn't give 5 stars because the room just needed updating but other wise a great place will defiantly stay again

In need of an upgrade!

I am a longtime guest at the El San Juan Hotel - my first stay back in 1992. The hotel has since changed hands - Wyndham and now a Hilton. I always select this hotel because of the nightlife scene in their lobby. The pools and beac h are also enjoyable and basically have everything in one place. The hotel however is in need of desperate repairs and upgrades. The front desk service is horrible, and they are in need of some basic customer service skills!! If you are looking for a quick getaway w/some fun this place is perfect - just don't expect "Hilton" service.

Supernen

Nice place could use a little updating. What I did not like was the fact that you couldn't bring your own food or drinks to the pool. It's more like you were forced to get the food from the hotel and the prices were a bit expensive.. Also the bed was very hard wasn't expecting that one.. The location was the best part
