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.

GREAT place

A friend and I just got back and loved our stay at this hotel. Other reviews claim that it's dated but it's really not. The pools are great and the private beach is wonderful. Hammocks, outdoor beds. Hotel food is expensive but what hotel food isn't? There are some little restaurants in the area, including a Subway and liquor store. All in all a great experience. Definitely going back to this hotel.

Perfect Honeymoon

Everything was fantastic. Front desk accommodated our room change quickly. Concierge took care of our rainforest excursion. Excellent restaurants, pools, beach. Great valet/bag check staff. Nothing but a noisy peacock to complain about. Request a room away from the peacock garden area for maximum quiet.

Beautiful Hotel

traveled with 4 other friends for a beautiful stay at Caribe Hilton. There weren't too many kids getting in the way. Definitely plenty of space to be romantic or other. The hotel has terrific amenities including great size gym facility, yoga and workout classes on the beach, tropical garden with beautiful wildlife. The jacuzzi and pools were comfy and only a mile from Old San Juan; take the bus, it's only .75 cents. The grounds were nicely maintained. Some negatives include the high cost of food and the extremely slow service from the front desk and most of the restaurants at the hotel.

Fantastic place to stay

The quality of the hotel leaves very little to be desired. The pool and beach there are simply incredible, and the service from the staff was top-notch and always friendly. The rooms were tidy, and the balcony had a great ocean view. If you're planning on spending a lot of time exploring the famed spots of San Juan (especially the Old San Juan area), this hotel is in a prime location.

We did many of the activities promoted on Orbitz, and I felt all of them were great deals. I didn't have to worry about transporting myself from place to place since each of these activity packages comes with free pick-up at the lobby of your hotel (if it is in San Juan). The snuba and sailing/snorkeling were both very enjoyable.

Great hotel

The hotel was great, the location was excellent. It's really close to Old San Juan and Condado where you can find shops, restaurants and bars. The beach was super clean and private which made the experience even better. It was wonderful, they have waitresses on the beach that come and get you drinks or food. I went to their Olas Spa and got a massage in front of the beach, it was super relaxing. The staff was very attentive and super helpful. I definetely recommend this hotel and will love to go back.

Our last day in the hotel we took a walk from the hotel to Old San Juan, 15 min. Right along the beach, once in Old San Juan we walked everywhere it was fabulous. Defenitely walking is better than driving, you get to experience the real Puerto Rico and find hidden treasures along their strech streets.

The perfect relaxing vacation

Our trip was the most relaxing trip we've taking so far. This was our second time we've come to Puerto rico and I have to say this one was the best time out of the two. From the hamocks hanging from the palm trees to the most comfortable seating around the pools and right on the beach. I really enjoyed the swim up bar too!! One thing I have to say the ocean view room was the best!! To wake up to that breath taking view every morning absolutely made the trip. I would definately pick this hotel for my next trip to the island.

Very happy with the amount of restaraunts on the property. Because we didn't rent a car it made it convenient and for us to have options was even better. They weren't super expensive either.
