This hotel is only 6 months old (as of May, 2010). It is super clean and trendy. There were not many dining options around the hotel, but one of the hotel restaurants had some amazing dishes (i.e., pulled pork mac & cheese, fried tomatoes and
steak sandwich). I loved their blood orange mojito, which was super refreshing. The casino was clean and not obnoxiously loud (though I didn't gamble there...)The infinity pool was amazing. The hotel gym was one of the best I've seen!
Everyone at the hotel was friendly and courteous. The only bummer was the hotel's location. It is in the middle of nowhere (well, convention center). If you want to go anywhere (beaches, shopping, eating local foods), you'll have to take a cab ($12~), which can add up pretty quickly. If you are patient and willing, you should learn to use the public transit systems. Each bus ride is only about 50-75 cents, so it is so much cheaper than riding a cab!
Other than the inconvenient location, this hotel was fabulous!!
The hotel is beautiful and colorful. Service is excellent and the restaurant has great food.. Pool deck on the 4th Fl. has great ambiance and extremelly relaxing. SPA is amazing..Only downer is the fact that is 10/15 mins from the beach, but if
you have a car is not a problem.. Otherwise, the place is beautiful, clean, modern, service is great and food is excellent..I rated it a five star hotel..
This is a great locationif you are going to PR. The rooms were gorgeous and all the eateries were great as well. Very close to attractions and th ebeach. But the staff can be a little more helpful. As hotel employee that handle tourist everyday
but one should be attentive at all times. Aslo the concierge was always missing and seem not to have alot of information. Outside of those things it was a really great stay and we had a blast on that island. I do recommend taking air flemenco to culebra to visit flemenco beach. SUPER GORG!! TAke the Bacardi mansio tour as well. Iit's free and only like a short cab ride over and to get bback to the main island you can take the ferry which is super inexpensive.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
The restaurants in the hotel are really good. Be sure to visit them when you don't feel like stepping out after along day.
We selected this hotel based on price and location. Located next to the convention centre you are able to catch a bus to take you where ever you wish to go for only $.075 cents.
Pier for RCL is also located on this side of the harbour. Easy access
by bus or cab to Old San Juan.
Shopping only $18.00 cab fare away.
Saint Sebastian festival was going on when we got there, was a lot of fun and it was a plus since we didn't know about it. Sheraton hotel was close enough that we took a cab round trip and didn't have to worry about the traffic and/or the crowds.
Had a lot of fun and will go again.
