Long weekend getaway

Beautiful ocean view. Clean room. Close to bus stop to go to Old San Juan and forts for 50 cents. Free trolley tours. Downside hotel restaurants extremely expensive. I took car service which was expensive 81.00 for a 10 min drive. Suggest shuttle or taxi. Restaurants in the city are more reasonable. Hotel was near a few casinos.

Paradise

I booked this hotel for an anniversary trip with my boyfriend and it was a pretty amazing choice. Our ocean view room was amazing for pictures and great to relax on. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. The private beach was so clean with scuba diving and other water activities which we enjoyed. We were able to visit old San Juan and isla verde for only .50 cents on the local bus and were able to do some amazing shopping at Plaza las Americas which was a 5 minute cab ride. All in all my only critique would be the dining within the hotel extremely overpriced! I would not recommend the 50$ continental buffet breakfast for two. There's a cute shop down the street with great breakfast for about 5$ a plate.

Great Hotel for a family with small children

This hotel was beautiful and the staff was very friendly however we asked for a microwave and never got it. My four year old loved the beach and the play ground they have onsite. This is a very family oriented place. However next time I will pick a hotel that is on Ashford Avenue to avoid paying $12-15 cab ride. The Staff onsite from Enterprice were great. Please do your reservations online for the car rental is half the price then if you do it onsite.

Great place to drop some cash

The hotel was full of great staff...but way overpriced. Every drink was over $12 and there was little to eat at the hotel that wasn't crazy expensive. A couple good things where the staff was super helpful and nice. There is a Quiznos there for later food cheap. The taxi service was easy to places like Old San Juan. Would stay there again just would be a little more frugile with drinks on grounds.

Vacation getaway

My partner and I decide to go on vacation in the lovely San Juan, PR and stayed at the Caribe Hilton. It was a terrific stay and the room was perfect. I have nothing but good things to say about my stay. The only bad thing I can say is that the hotel prices are a little expensive for food and drinks so be prepared to experiment PR by traveling to local areas sure as Old San Juan and Condado. In these areas you can find inexpensive place to drink and eat at reasonable prices. My experience with the hotel was terrific close enough to get to other places and far enough for a romantic get away. Next trip I will be staying at the Caribe, and hopefully at the tower in the same room!

Go to Condado that has plenty of restaurants and bars. There is all types of food to fit anyone's palate from cheap to expensive. I dined at a place called Ropa Viega which was really good, but a little price. The walk is about 20 minutes from the hotel over the bridge. A cab from the hotel will cost 13.00 so walk or take the bus for .75.
