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.

Fantastic Romantic Getaway

Great experience! Great staff and service. Awesome beach, pools and jacuzzi. Great place to relax. Old San Juan and many attractions within a 5 minute taxi ride. Lots of activities and places to explore in Old San Juan. Many trips organized by hotel leaving daily. Renovation going on in certain parts of the resort, but does not affect your stay in any way. Great vacation!!!

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.

MOST AMAZING HOTEL IN SAN JUAN

The hotel itself was amazing. Right on the beach. Exclusive beach with 3 pools, water falls & sundeck to lay out. The staff there was very friendly. Great atmosphere for all ages. I suggest that you shouldn't eat at the hotel because it was very expensive. Old San Juan is right next to the hotel. About a 10 min ride. Super fun.

Experience the food at Old San Juan. Only thing close to the hotel is Morton's Steakhouse and Subway. They have restaurants inside, but very expensive. The breakfast brunch was pretty good though. Ask the front desk to give you vochers to get free coupons for the brunch.

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.

The best of San Juan

This was my 2nd stay at the Caribe Hilton although the 1st was at the Lagoon Villa. Whether you stay at the main hotel or the Lagoon Villa, you get to enjoy all the Caribe Hilton has to offer. The location is perfect and the beach is beyond compare to any other hotel in San Juan. You can walk to Old San Juan or the Condada area so you can do without a car however there is so much to see and do in Puerto Rico, you may want to rent a car which you do at the hotel when you decide to visit the rain forest for example. I wouldn't stay any where else in San Juan and I will definitely be visiting again.

Old San Juan is a beautiful walk from the hotel and there are many small shops and markets to visit there as well as many places to enjoy lunch or dinner. There is also a lot of history and beautiful architecture to see. Old San Juan should not be missed!

Great getaway

We enjoyed this hotel a lot. We liked the modern furniture and decorations. The pool area was breath taking. Enjoyed the bar by the pool too. Good drinks but pricey. Everything was kept clean. The staff was friendly. However, we would have liked to have entertaintment within the hotel. Perhaps a band playing or other live music.
