Nearby airports
Caribe Hilton is located approximately 7 miles from the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU).
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 Stay for the Price

Thia was my First experience at the Caribe Hilton and I am very glad I chose this hotel. Our stay was enjoyable, the staff was very helpful and courteous. The pool and beach had good maintenance . Making it very pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable area. Making our trip very relaxing and lots of fun. I recommend ths hotel to anyone who likes quality and the goodlife. We really enjoyed our stay at the Caribe Hilton and have recommended it to my family and friends here in the states.we are looking forward to visitng again. The only negetive is that I think it lacked nightlife entertainment (ie dancing & Casino).

Incredible Paradise

From the moment we arrived the staff could not of been more accommodating. The rooms were beautiful and the view amazing. Everyone associated with the hotel was knowledgeable and offered many places to visit or various foods and drinks to try out. The pool and lagoon were fabulous. There was always some activity to make everyone have happy and enjoy their stay.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

there are so many attractions to see in Old San Juan. The cobblestone roads were very quaint. We took cabs in the beginning,but decided to walk after it only took 20 minutes to half hour. There are so many shops and dining areas that were all very friendly and reasonable costs. The whole experience is going to be memorable for a very long time.

Overall....Fantastic!

We practically took advantge of the many places offered for relaxation: the Hammocks nestled between the palm trees, the beds by the beach, a dip in the jacuzzi at 10pm, the secluded pool by the Villas, the quiet animal habitat, feeding the fishes, and the comfortable pillows and comforter. I would have preferred a few clocks around the pools and beach, since you're mostly in the water and without a watch (considering the blackberry has been turned off!). The place was amazing and we plan to visit within the next 3 months!

Considering the location of the Caribe Hilton, nestled between Isla Verde and Old San Juan, there were many places to dine or entertain yourself.

Wow!! Excellent

The trip was worth the experience. The check in was wonderful. The staff did everything to make you feel comfortable. There was everything you needed to know about the place, getting there and making you feel comfortable about the whole trip. The dining was a bit expensive but not very different from the city.

Great Accomodations

Everything you need is right there! It is a very beautiful resort and enough space so that everyone is not crowded on top of each other. It is close to Old San Juan and other sites. I would definitely stay again.The check-in staff may need some work but everyone else was great!

Great Stopover Stay PostCruise

We stayed for one night after a cruise. We arrived early and were allowed use of the hotel facilities and they stored our luggage. We got our room earlier than the check in time. There was a mistake on the room (we were supposed to have a balcony) but the room was so nice we almost stayed there. However, they did quickly move us to a nice room in the tower with a beautiful ocean view from a nice balcony overlooking the gardens. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. We couldn't have been happier. The bed was wonderful, especially after a week on a ship bed. The only negative we found was that you need to take a cab to go anywhere.

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.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

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.
