A backdrop of wild, tropical surroundings and a two-mile stretch of beach is offered by the InterContinental San Juan resort in Puerto Rico.  High-end touches to its island setting make guests feel constantly spoiled, from its canopied poolside lounge chairs to its chocolate granite and indigo decor. Troops of palm trees keep you company while you stroll by water fountains to take a dip in the outdoor pool. Get your heart racing at the gym or drop by for a relaxing massage at the spa. Five restaurants satisfy culinary wishes, and you can grab a drink at one of the welcoming hotel bars. Finish the night accompanying Lady Luck around the casino.

Neighborhood
Picking up an authentic panama hat from Ole, a custom hat fitter, is just one of the ways to embrace the local culture in historic Old San Juan. Crammed with eateries, shops, boutiques and museums, this is a vibrant community. Caficultura dishes up an excellent breakfast spiked with rum (at your request), making an excellent start to a morning spent at the Eastern side of the area. Take a trip out and zip-line through the El Yunque Rainforest, or go at a more relaxing pace on its lower levels. You'll spot some incredible wildlife, including the charming Puerto Rican parrot.
Hints and tips
Club level rooms are excellent for guests desiring a child-free vacation.

Make sure to try a signature plate of grilled chicken and beans during your visit.

Across the street from this hotel there is a restaurant called la casita they sell traditional cuisine there. You must try their mofongo. It was the best meal I ever had.

Elegant Old World Charm

Stayed at this hotel while taking my grandson for a medical check-up. What a pleasure to be surrounded by old world charm and elegance. The gardens and foliage surrounding the pool and outdoor terraces were stunningly beautiful.The staff was warm and friendly and very helpful with transportationn information. I usually stay in the Condado area, but this change of venue was a pleasant surprise. Loved the old world elegance.

Perfect Last Minute Honeymoon Change

We ended up here on accident after our original honeymoon plan of going to the BVI was stifled by an expired passport. Last minute (literally) we booked this hotel based on the pictures online - the resort look coupled with being so close to the beach. Well, it was exactly that and then some. The hotel itself was stunning. The staff made the stay that much more enjoyable. They were so accommodating and friendly!! When we had a question, request, or anything in between, they responded immediately..and always with a smile. They wanted to ensure we enjoyed out stay there, and that we did. Since we were on our honeymoon, we were also able to upgrade to a better room that took our experience from vacation to honeymoon. Though the view changed from a stunning look out onto the ocean, we were moved within steps of the pool area with our own patio. Finally, the ease of location of this hotel made it well worth every penny - El Yunque approximately 30 mins in one direction, Old San Juan approximately 30 minutes in the other; as well as the airport no more than 5-10 minutes away. This made for our change of plans a pleasant surprise to say the least. We would certainly stay again and again!

Birthdaycation

The hotel was just average. The bell boys were the coolest staff! Front desk people were alright but the kitchen staff needs to relax! Breakfast was over priced and they told me it was all you can eat. So I paid to get it to go because that's the only way if you want to eat it by the pool. I just started with a little bit of fruit and then decided I'll go back when I'm done eating my fruit. When I went back for other foods, they told me I can't do that so she literally had me put everything back AFTER I scooped it onto my plate. Gross? So I guess I'm upset because I paid about $20 for fruit and some of it was old! That really annoyed me. This hotel is alright, nothing too special but I guess it's one of the nicer hotels in Puerto Rico.
