WENT TO SAN JUAN FOR MY 28th BIRTHDAY AND I MUST SAY THE INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL WAS A VERY GOOD CHOICE TO STAY AT. THE HOTEL STAFF WERE VERY Friendly, POOL IS 24hrs. THE OCEAN IS RIGHT BEHIND THE HOTEL I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. WILL DEFINITELY BE REVISITING SOON!!!

My husband and I have stayed here before and each time things are slightly different. The hotel is acurately rated as a 4 not 5 star hotel. It has a nice pool and beautiful beach front which is what we love. Rooms are clean n comfortable. Dining is pricey however at the main restaurant for breakfast n dinner buffets that are just "ok". We dont mind it tho n keep coming back but the buffets certainly lack options/variety. Sodas are of course pricey at the buffet ($4 bucks) so even wo alcohol our dinner buffet w tip is over $160. Staff is always accomodating throughout. Highly suggest this hotel for the price.

My experience was amazing, from bar in the pool to its amazing views, staff opens door for you, literally on the beach. Hands down the best pool on the strip of hotels on the beach. The only thing was the breakfast buffet was a little pricey and parking is not attached to the hotel and there's an additional fee. Lastly, I paid extra for the ocean view and although it was an amazing room with an incredible view the bath tub was a basic tub which barely fit me in hahaha.i would def recommend this hotel.

The facilities inside of the hotel are pretty old. I lost a bag of clothes inside of my hotel room, and I didn't know how did that happened. Reported to the securities with no results.

The hotel was very nice, and the staff was friendly. We enjoyed staying here, because of the lovely pool and beach area as well as the convenience of being able to walk to many restaurants, and the CVS across the street. Would definitely suggest walking to Piu Bello for breakfast. We ate there every day. The Ruth's Chris in the hotel was great as well. The happy hour prices were very reasonable for both drinks and food. The hotel was only about 3 min from the airport and 15 min from Old San Juan. The staff was very clear about the charges on our bill, there were no surprises.

Expensive drinks and food.....................................

The hotel location was great. We loved the Jacuzzi, pool and beach. Hotel Service was excellent. Drinks were a little expensive, but you could bring a cooler to the beach(not the pool area). Hotel was close to Old San Juan and other bars and night clubs. I would definitely stay there again.

The service is excellent and for us it is what always make the difference!! Everyone was very cordial and ready to provide us with fast and good service. On the other hand the rooms need some renovating, the carpet smells a bit and the room smells of humidity. Room cleanliness could also receive extra loving care. The fridge is very small, even so stuff left by previous guest was still inside the refrigerator. Also make sure you are not charged with consuming beverages or snacks you didn't have at all! It happened to us but luckily the front desk personnel took care of the problem and apologize for the mistake. If breakfast it's not included in your stay do not pay out of pocket for it! The pastries are not good quality, bread and bagels totally forgettable , nothing offered is quality or appetizing. Best bet? Go out of the hotel to local eateries and have breakfast with the locals at half the price! Area is safe people very friendly.

Great place to stay. Really enjoyed the hotel. It was on the beach and staff was really nice.

Staff was amazing only bad thing was the pillows were hard as rocks

Pretty hotel for people of all ages and sizes. Pool area was beautiful and plus it is on the ocean. Staff goes above and beyond to meet all your needs. The first person to greet us was Rae at the front door. He should be called The Ambassador of the hotel. He is great!

This was our second visit to San Juan Puerto Rico and the Intercontinental Hotel. The staff is super friendly and so helpful, the rooms are spacious and clean. We have already booked to go back again in September!

This is our 2nd stay and we loved it. The pool is great, the hotel clean and the staff incredible. We had a fantastic experience at the spa and enjoyed all the restaurant meals. We would go back again and recommend it highly

Best things hotel is on the beach! Fortunately the strikers at the hotel 2 doors down had settled down so not a big disruption. Great local food no need to eat onsite we stayed a week with 2 kids and dining out was delicious and budget friendly. Convenient Avis onsite to rent a car to drive to the beautiful rainforest. Good staff no issues.

The staff are very friendly and great. The food is way overpriced. The beach and the pool are very nice.

Terrific hotel and location. Staff are wonderful. High fee per night at end (hotel or govt fee?) Be aware. Only other gripe. When doors shut in hallways, it woke me up. Overall, gorg place, great food and great time.

Checked in for 3 days. Called the day before to confirm a fridge in the room and ask some general questions. When we arrived Sunday we were told there were protesters next door at the El San Juan and there may some 'slight' noise. Slight was an understatement. The noise was unbearable. The protesters were out from 7am - 930pm shouting with horns, non stop sirens, and music both in the front and back of the hotel. Since the beach is public the police didn't have a right to stop them. The Intercontinental was told on Saturday that the protests would last a week but PURPOSELY failed to inform guests. Had they told us when we called the day before our arrival that we would be unable to enjoy the beach we could/would have changed our plans. The staff was rude, nasty and dismissive. We were shuffled from front desk 'manager' to 'on duty manager' and spoke to a dozen staff incl US offices,They all claimed there was no General Manager. We found out later there was one but he is not on the property. They said there would be no refunds and they were not responsible. Many guests spent hours trying to get the resort fees waived and many checked out. We had a package so we could not make changes. This Intercontinental was dirty and run down. The plastic shower curtain was full of mildew, door to the balcony did not lock, bathrobes did not have belts and only one pair of slippers was provided. The misc bathroom items were not replenished and there was only 1 chair.

I love this hotel. Friendly staff. Great pool and beach. We treated ourselves to a room upgrade to a club room and it was so worth it. Private patio connected to the pool area and a private club room. Excellent.

I had a beautiful time even though I came alone. I enjoyed the scenery, my room and most of all, the drinks. The people were very friendly. I look forward to returning.

When I had to leave the hotel due to overwhelmingly noisy union protests at a neighboring hotel that had moved to the beach, the management and staff were so helpful and sympathetic.
