Nearby airports

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.

Excellent staff and beautiful grounds

The hotel was excellent with friendly and helpful staff. Convient walk to San Juan or taxi service always at the waiting. Beautiful views, if you spend the little extra to get an ocean view. It is worth the extra money. Fabulous beach and pool area. Not as much to choose from for dining, but old San Juan was a 20 minute walk away, or a 5 minute taxi ride for $10, and it has superb dining places to choose from.

Nice Hotel Stay

I think this is beautiful hotel and it was in a good location within minutes from Old San Juan. The view of the water was great. The staff were very friendly and polite. The spa is a little over priced but its a good place.

Amazing Honeymoon!

The first room we were given was a great room, but the bathroom wasn't clean. Perhaps room service hadn't gotten to that room yet since we were checking in so early (noon). We called up the front desk and they moved us to another room which was fantastic. The view was gorgeous. The location was great. Overall our trip was incredible. The hotel location is within walking distance to Old San Juan, but we didn't mind the $10-$12 taxi fare. We did walk to Condado a few times (to dine at Ajilli Mojilli). We did a bunch of tours, all of which accommodated travel and picked us up right at the front lobby area. We went kayaking in Bio Bay, snorkeling off Icacos and a private island, hiking in El Yunque rainforest, swimming in Luquillo beach, and took a tour of Old San Juan. This was by far the best trip I've ever taken and I've been all over. The hotel was gorgeous! Amazing pool area, great private beach, fun outside games, outside hammocks, great restaurants, etc!

Everywhere we ate in San Juan was great (Latin Roots, Toro Salao, Pina Colada Club, etc) except Raices! It was very overpriced and the service could hardly be called that. They just hosed up the order from the beginning and did stuff that irks me like bring out the appetizers after the main course etc.

centrally located, deeply relaxing

This hotel was equidistant to great neighborhoods, beaches, restaurants, in all directions. The nook in the cabeza where it's located is really quiet compared to hotels in the Condado (just across the bridge), but an easy walk to the restaurants there. The staff is very friendly. The food at three of the attached restaurants is delicious. The room comes with a frig--great for after sunbathing.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Pick up breakfast goods at the Pueblo Market in Miramar, or Super Max (short cab ride) on De Diego Street. Super Max has everything you need. Also, Orozco's (open 8-midnight) in the Condado makes wonderful, local dishes and tremendous seafood. And, a great fish sandwich from 11-6. Tip included; check yr bill. Traditional fare at a great price at Bebo's in the Condado (long walk). Great casual eating at Club PiƱa Colada, attached to the Tower building of the Hilton. And great service.

Great place to stay for all ages

I love the location, beaches, and amenities. I wished that there were more food choices. The staff is very nice. There is a convenience store, where a big bag of Doritos would cost you $6.42!
