One of the most luxurious resorts in Puerto Rico, the Caribe Hilton, is set on an exclusive, lushly landscaped 17-acre peninsula. This historic waterfront resort has been impeccably restored to reflect the character of historic San Juan while maintaining its renowned standards for luxury and is ideally situated between Old San Juan and contemporary Condado.

There are plenty of ways to relax or play at the Caribe Hilton. Bathe in the sun's warm rays at one of the oceanfront swimming pools and whirlpools, or stroll on the secluded beach. Plunge into the pool while the children play at the kids' club or summertime camp, Camp Coco. Stay active in the hotel's fitness center or enjoy games consoles and movies in the games room. Challenge your partner to a game of tennis or be pampered and unwind at the spa.

Indulge at one of eight restaurants and bars. Savor oriental delights at Lemon Grass Pan Asian Latino, enjoy a mouthwatering steak at Morton's The Steakhouse, or sample fresh, tropical dishes at Il Giardino La Trattoria. Start your day with a wholesome breakfast at Palmeras Restaurant and sip on cocktails in the hotel's open air lobby at Oasis Bar, birthplace of the Piña Colada.

Unwind in a stylishly comfortable guest room and admire spectacular views from the balcony, or choose a suite with a separate living area. Situated five minutes from San Juan Convention Center and only 15 minutes from Luis Munoz Marin Airport, this hotel offers 24 meeting and banquet spaces for up to 1,600 guests. Celebrate your dream wedding or arrange a business conference and enjoy professional planning advice.

Hilton Caribe we chose because of Hilton honors points

The hotel has a gorgeous lobby and the pool area and beach are also nice. Our room was in the Villas II, it was a very long walk with baggage, which was supposed to be ocean view, but it was more bay view with tiny ocean view. The room was small for having two double beds and the bathroom had mildew in the tub that really should have been bleached prior to arrival. Part of the hotel with the hallway to our room was flooded and shut down so we had to figure out a way to get to the lobby in the rain on multiple days. Also the tile throughout the hotel is super slippery and we almost fell a few times. Overall the hotel was not bad but definitely not 5 star compared to other Hilton hotels. The staff was all nice except Blanco. He was very rude when we went to the pool. He thought we were trying to circumvent security when we were just looking at the patio dining area. He scolded us and told us we needed to get our bags checked before watering the pool at area (not knowin we had already done it a few minutes prior but then walked back into the hotel) he scolded the security guy too and he just looked at us like "oh well." I would still recommend the hotel but will most likely try a different hotel next time.

Not what I expected, I don't rival we walked through amaze to get to our room only to find out the extra I paid for got us a room for away from the hotel and amenities and also a dirty room. They accommodated and transferred us to the main hotel but amenities and use of private beach was less than average . It was explained to me that city sights were in walking distance and that was not the case. Everything was very overpriced in the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing vacation . There was constant corporate traffic and meeting intermixed. Not great walking through a lobby in swimwear through a crowd of corporate meeting guests

Great Full Service Resort
CANDACE E.

The Caribe Hilton is a great full service resort. You knew you were truly on vacation the moment you stepped out of the cab and into the open lobby with a great view of the pool area and ocean. Our room was in the towers and quite comfortable but the best point for us was the bathroom. Double sinks and an amazing walk in shower. The pool area was phenomenal and the beach was very nice. Service for towels and drinks was phenomenal. Ephron was our waiter on the first day and recognized us throughout our trip providing great service. You always feel flattered when someone goes out of their way to remember you. The restaurants in the hotel were wonderful. Our favorite was the Lemon Grass which is a fusion of Latin and Japanese. The Sushi was amazing as was the Red Snapper and 5 Spice Beef Ribs. Desserts - the churros and key lime rolls were also outstanding. You really did not have to worry about working off the calories because the hotel has a wonderful fitness center and spa. Great equipment in excellent condition with an attendant on site. I only wish I had also brought my tennis racket since they had really nice hard courts as well. Although we went into town, the hotel had everything we wanted and we really had no reason to leave. Will definitely come here again.

I visited San Juan with my mom and stayed at the Caribe Hilton for 2 nights, it was absolutely beautiful. They have their own beach which was great. They have 4/5 outdoor pools. You could lie down on the hammocks in the gentle breeze, look at the sea and hear the sea waves talking to you. Our room overlooked the sea, was extremely clean and gorgeously decorated. The staff were amazing.

The Caribe Hilton is officially my favorite hotel ever. I have been fortunate enough to stay on Waikiki, San Diego, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Whistler and this hotel is phenomenal. The location is roughly half way between San Juan airport and Old San Juan. The surrounding area of Candado is vibrant and lively both during the day and at night just adding to the experience. The property is gorgeous, sprawling over acres of property that is all useful. The lobby upon entrance is open air allowing you to feel the Caribbean breeze about the bottom floor, also open-air provides shops and Starbucks along with high-end decor that I feel is appropriate for business and pleasure. Walking outside towards the pools and bars provides a view that is second to none. The exterior design and construction is incredible and by itself is worthy to call a vacation destination. The food served and the drinks are amazing as is the private lagoon that is accessible to hotel guests only allows to you dip your toes into the caribbean waters. Unfortunately, the hotel is built on rock shores so the lagoon is the only way to enjoy the sand as the rest of the property and ocean is lined with large rocky shores. Nevertheless, me being a beach lover I was not let down by the the rest of the outdoor amenities and relaxation opportunities available. You can even feed the iguana that roam the property freely. The bars supply lettuce leak and the iguanas will approach you and eat from your hands. Quite the experience. The rooms are nicely appointed, nothing that really blew me away, but then again I was there to enjoy the outdoors prior to a cruise so I only needed a bed and shower. The room is nice don't get me wrong, quality decor and furniture, but if you are expecting 5* you might be a little let down, but trust me when I say the rest of the hotel more than makes up for it. For the active folks such as myself, I was excited to workout daily prior to my cruise and OMG it was better than the LA Fitness that I was a member of during this vacation. The locker room, the front desk, the equipment is top notch. I was able to get just as good of a workout there as I did in the military. A little secret, within a 5 minute walk, there is a Fogo de Chow Brazilian Steakhouse and it is phenomenal. The restaurant at the hotel had an appealing menu, but I was craving Fogo so I didn't eat there other than breakfast as the rest of my meals were eaten out in town. The only major downfall is that if you want to get to old town san juan, you are looking at almost $20 each way so cab rides can add up quickly. We stayed here for a week prior to a cruise to explore Puerto Rico and if there was anything I would change about the hotel would be the location since the Forts, cruise terminals and the majority of touristy attractions are in Old San Juan otherwise this place would never have vacancies lol. This will always be my hotel in all of my future PR visits and I can't wait to go back.

Would stay again if coming back to puerto rico

I went to a meeting to San juan Puerto Rico. Since it was my first visit ever, I didn't know which hotel to choose. Luckily for me the caribe Hilton turned out to be an excellent choice. It has a convenient location It is easily found by taxi drivers The rooms are of an adequate size and are well kept There is a small food court just accross the street if you don't really have a budget to eat at the hotel On the first floor they also have convenience stores so you can buy souvenirs and also personal stuff that u might have forgotten when packing at home I would definitely stay here again if I come back to puerto rico

Considering the hurricane, this place is still doing OK for a Hilton

I am currently staying at the Hilton as part of the FEMA volunteers in the lagoon tower, and our building has power, AC and everything is working just fine. The tennis courts are still being repaired, but the pool and whirlpool are just fine. The work out center, saunas are awesome! The Ocean Side Tower is open, but the clubs and restaurants are still under repairs, but the moon bar has reopened thurs thru Sat; and the noodle bar just re-opened. Denny's is going strong 24 hours a day! I am comfortable, the room is awesome and clean, and everything works.
