Hotel was charming and offer generous amenities, ranging from unlimited coffee, tea, and fruits throughout the day to an hour of free wine and cheese daily. Staff was excellent, courtesy, accommodating and wonderful. Within walking distance to the two forts, streets are live with activities and festive. We rented a car to visit the rainforest and caves.

Back to Old San Juan

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
During previous visits to PR, we managed to spend 80 of our time in Old San Juan. This visit we decided, why not just stay there. El Convento is a very charming hotel with a wonderful staff. The room was clean with top notch toiletries. You mist visit the Taps Bar, the Salmkn was superb. It is centrally located which is perfect for visiting El Moro, shopping, and resaurants. The only downside was the size of the pool...it was very small but perfect for cooling off and it was never crowded.
