I am attending a wedding at the Gran Melia on a Saturday in April. We are planning to spend Friday through Tuesday in Puerto Rico. This hotel costs more than I would ideally like to spend, but I would stay there on the Saturday night for convenience.
So my question is, is Rio Grande a good place to stay the entire time? If so, are there nearby hotels - upscale but cheaper - for the other nights?
This will be our first time in Puerto Rico, and we would like to see the major sites, so I am wondering if we should stay in San Juan itself the other nights instead.
