Four diamond extravagance is offered to all guests at the Marriot San Juan Resort, keeping adults entertained with champagne-style pleasure, while wowing kids with games and waterslides. An oasis among Puerto Rico's party atmosphere, the hotel features grand architecture, neutral decor, surrounding vistas and tall palm trees. Exotic dark wood paneling and granite tops make every suite feel like a more refined version of home. Five restaurants serve up delicious continental cuisine, and the on-site Stellaris casino gives guests the chance to hedge their bets at Texas Hold’em poker. With two outdoor pools to swim through, and spa treatments to enjoy, it's really no surprise that the Puerto Rico Tourism Company named this hotel Best of The Best for all around quality and service.

Neighborhood
Walk out of your suite and straight onto the sandy beach that the resort nudges. The city-side neighborhood has a Starbucks with a Puerto Rican slant, giving you classic coffees along with a menu full of San Juan staples. Old San Juan is only a short walk away, lined with a rainbow of historical fortresses and buzzing with nightlife, dancing and cuisine. For a quieter encounter with nature, the El Yunque Tropical Rainforest begs to be explored
Hints and tips

Oceanfront and First Floor Cabana rooms give visitors panoramic mountain and ocean views.

Those in search of a silent night should book a higher floor, away from the casino.

Excelent for the weatlhy

WOW, everything is so expensive here. I guess that's why it's full of wealthy older crowds. The least expensive thing to do is hang out in the pool area. (You are paying for it whether you use it or not). It is awesome whether you like the white sandy private hotel clean beach or excelent hotel pool. The hotel claims to be a resort but it's not. It's best to eat outside of the hotel restaurants, there are plenty of restaurants on Ashford Ave. Good dance music every night in the lobby and very good casino.

Nice hotel and friendly staff

The hotel location was great and close to a walgreens across the street which we needed almost everyday. The hotel was VERY noisy at night when the had loud music and dancing....which some people may enjoy but we didn't. Best of all, the hotel provides free bottled water which saved us a ton since we drank so much water while we were there(u can ask for extra water at the front desk since they only provide u with two in your room daily)

OK but worn out

Plusses: Great location and the best casino on Condado. Room was large as well. Minuses: Filled with teens and kids; worn out look and no lobby- getting dated and needs a refresh; drinks and snack costs are very high and quality is so-so.

Relaxing getaway.

We did a lot of activities, most of them not provided by the hotel because those were too pricy and booking through independent tourists are much cheaper. We visited El Yunque rainforest, Luquillo beach, el Morro, old San Juan, the country side mountain villages, club lasers, club brava, club the noise, and the bacaradi factory. One thing that I wish the hotel had was an all inclusive package or at least one complimentary meal because that's where most of our money went. Compared to the vacations it wasn't the best but it wasn't the worse either, it was descent.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Book activities through independent tourists not the hotel because it's much cheaper. For example the rainforest/Luquillo beach tour is $95 per hour for a minimum of 4hours on a private tour through the hotel while through an independent tourist we found it was only $65 per person for the whole day!

Quick Getaway

The first room we were allocated was a very poor standard, needs a coat of paint, room had musty smell and felt grubby. Air vent was dirty. They were fine about changing to another room, which was a complimentary upgrade - although more the standard we were expecting. Rooms are functional, nothing special. Balcony furniture, very poor. Windows not cleaned well. Staff were friendly enough, but no one stood out although Concierge Desk were really helpful.

2009 Vacation

Great beach access. My only disappointment with this hotel is that we had to change rooms three (3) times to get a decent room that didn't smell or have a terrible view of the rusted hotel building. I have never been so disappointed in a Marriott before this one.

There were great restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. You can save some money, and do some of the tours on your own.

think before you book it...

If you do not leave your room before 9 a.m . do not expect a room service at all. The cleaning ladies simply do not care. Our room was cleaned every other day (but still we would have to call the service to get some shampoo, body balm, etc) It would be delivered at 2 a.m. Food is OK. La Vista's employees at Marriott were really nice and all over you. Casino - small place with 5-6 black jack tables and two poker tables and other playing machines. Basically nothing to choose from. The Condado area itself was nice and safe to stay at. Remember that Isla Verde is a public beach. So if you want to stay away from the local crowd stay at Condado's areas. They also have nice stores around (Cartier, LV, Gucci, etc) Old San Juan - beautiful old city that you must see.

Great at appologies

This is a really nice place, that is very poorly run. What they are best at is trying to appease you with money off of services and free meals. The room we checked into was mildewy; yes, this is the tropics, but it is also a high end hotel. The maids scream across the hallways. There were workmen chancing locks; that was horribly coordinated. If the management learned to make things right instead of appease, this might have been a better stay. Good gym, nice pool, small but friendly casino are pluses.
