Area description
There is no place quite like a tropical volcanic island, and no island in the Caribbean quite like Puerto Rico. The geography of the island is very unusual, as it encompasses distinctly different kinds of topography and microclimates in a relatively small area. A rugged mountain range runs across the center from east to west, which often prevents rain clouds from passing to the south. The north side of the island is covered by dense vegetation, limestone formations, and rushing streams, while, the south side is sun-toasted terrain, home to tropical dry forests and many species of exotic birds. Puerto Rico is only about 100 miles long and 35 miles wide, so its most distant points are only a three-hour drive apart. It also means that just about every tropical landscape in existence is a short trip from wherever you happen to be.

our honeymoon

The hotel it's self was very clean, close to Old SJ, Bed was so comfortable, staff was nice, Pool was awesome. Bad things I I can say about hotel. At time of our stay 11-2-13 - 11-09-13 was pool bar and on site restaurants are very overpriced. We found it a lot cheaper and better to eat breakfast sandwich at Starbucks, then for dinner take a short taxi ride into Old San Juan. If you go to Old SJ a must try place is Boots. Best Monfondo and great staff and prices.Also it's only a few mile walk to Old SJ however it is way to hot to walk it, and by the time you get there your covered in sweat. we walked it one time and one time only. Next complaint is the hotel only had 1 elevator working which made it slow because every day there is a huge meeting of some sort, now they did let you use the service elevators, but they were what they say service elevators and a little scary. Last complaint when booking said my resort fee with tax included to pay at hotel, but when it came time to pay they charged an extra tax which was only $18. more but $18. is $18.00 just an fyi most taxi rides was 11.00, also you must go to their huge mall it was like no mall i ever seen. that taxi was about $15. I don't recommend renting a car, just use taxi service. WE WILL GO BACK WE LOVED THE PLACE!!!! Locals told use check out west or southside next time because the beaches are a lot better.

save $$$$ don't eat or drink on site!!! short walk across bridge to a Dennys, short taxi ride $11.00 to Old San Juan where great food is. Also mornings just eat at the starbucks. If you wanna drink alcohol at SJU airport they sell 4 bottles of rum for $50. buy that and make your own drinks all week. Just no glass at pool or beach area. Also soda, candy, snacks are way way overpriced on site so stock up before getting to hotel. !1 more thing very kid friendly, even though we didn't have kids. There is an onsite play ground, game room,kiddie pool, and sand castle building activates.

We Love Puerto Rico and Mofongo!!!

It was a wonderful trip for my wife and I.We celebrated our wedding anniversary. The location of the hotel was great and so were the staff. Our main issue with the hotel is that it's old and is in serious need of updating. The curtains had rust on them and the patio sliding door was loose and had a serious wind noise issue; because we were on the 11th floor, the howling wind noise was quite distracting when in the bed at night. Overall,we enjoyed our stay but did not feel the property lived up to the usual expectations of a Hilton hotel. Although I have been to Puerto Rico several times, the govt shutdown meant that we could not visit the historic forts so that was a bummer. Nonetheless, it was a great trip. Loved the Mofongo at Raices!!

Very nice & quiet resort

Its off the beaten path just enough to give you a quiet family area. It is still very close to downtowon Condado (walking distance) and a short cab ride to Old San Juan for some night life.

Go to Culebra Island off the east coast. Catch a 50 minute ferry ride from Fajardo for the most beautiful beach you can find. Flamenco beach is rated the #2 beach in the world by the discovery channel and is easily the most beautiful beach I have seen.

Okay

I like every thing except room service. When u pay cash they don't let u see the receipt till after u give them the cash. So they already added the tip into the total n to me they robbed me my money. Not expected at a well known hotel like the Hilton .... Other wise the staff is nice . So don't do room service.

4-day stay at the Caribe!

The Caribe Hilton is great! We didn't eat the food at the hotel so we can't speak to that, however the room (albeit standard) was great and most importantly the pools and the private beach were amazing! We got a car and it was worth it - given that the taxis were 12$ each way to Old San Juan and the rental fee for a compact car is around 35$ per day. The parking is super high but that seems the norm in Puerto Rico at nice hotels. Wish I had an extra night! 200$ is expensive for the quality though, so make sure you spend less (around 150$ seems ok) and don't forget about the resort fee (around 20$ a day).
