At the hotel on business. The hotel is re-opened after a major renovation. Rooms are very nice! Outdoor amenities were awesome. Pools are super nice, bars are good, music in the lobby was nice. There is still construction going on at the hotel as of this writing but the hotel is managing it very well. They keep the guests happy,...

My girlfriends and I recently visited this newly renovated property. Our stay was spectacular. Service was great, and the food was delicious. We had cocktails by the pool and on the beach our waitress was very attentive. We danced the night away at Brava the music was awesome. Will most definitely come back!

We were just at the hotel. I had read the reviews prior to leaving home and came < > this close to changing hotels but figured I would take my chance here. It was cheaper getting to the hotel by taxi than anticipated: $10 base + $2 airport fee + $1 state fee + $1/bag. It’s still overpriced when in...

The staff at the El San Juan Hotel is second to none. They consistently did whatever they could to make sure that our experience was magical- as it was our anniversary. Saint Frances (as I started to call her), had the best skills and attitude- and you could see, her line was long because people really felt understood after talking...

This is a Hilton property. When you get to the lobby you feel like you went back in time! The time of the fancy architecture and decor! Gorgeous bars and friendly staff. After checking in we had to wait for the room so we went to the bar passed the pool by the beach and enjoyed the gorgeous view and...

The El San Juan is a famous hotel - this was where Sammy Davis, Jr. and Frank Sinatra performed and stayed - but it needed to be renovated. I stayed there recently during the "soft" opening, so renovations were not completed, but it's clear the hotel (now part of the Hilton Curio collection) is doing a terrific job of keeping...

During my stay at this hostel, there was local protest about jobs because of that it was very noisy with loud speakers and protest all the time. During my stay I have experienced water problems 2 times in a row.
