Hotel Overview

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 Pi–a 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.

    birthday trip

    Hotel was beautiful and good location. I had an issue with late check out I requested but other than that all staff members were great. The only reason I rate it 4 star and not a 5, no club on property. We went out all 3 nights for night life.

    Pre and post cruise

    First let me say I’ve been Hilton “loyal” since 2004. This is the finest Hilton property that I have personally ever stayed in. I honestly cannot imagine an improvement in the lobby and pool areas! My children used the workout room, and loved it! Every team member we encountered, the bell staff, the desk team, the pool team, the bartenders (the Pina Coladas are legit!) and even the Starbucks were so gracious. Thanks Caribe Team! Mi espanol no es muy bueno, pero, Esperamos volver a verte!

    Great First Stay In PR!

    We stayed at the Caribe Hilton November 2019 for our one year wedding anniversary. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Here are a few tips from our trip: 1. The pool and surrounding areas are one of this hotel’s best features. The pool has a few different areas for sitting, a swim up bar and hot tubs. We enjoyed sitting here each day, grabbing drinks and enjoying the sun. On busier days it was a challenge to find a chair, but that was mostly on the weekend. 2. Location is great. Right on the water and in walking distance (or short cab) to many restaurants and hot spots in Old San Juan. We considered some hotel that were farther out from the city and I am glad we went with this location - super convenient. There isn’t much of a beach to speak of, but enough sand and access to water to do the trick (if just barely). Beach lovers, this may not be the spot for you. 3. For food, get out and enjoy the local offerings! Food at this hotel is extremely over-priced and just “fine”. Avoid the breakfast buffet at all cost. This was our most expensive and least enjoyable meal of our entire trip! Take a walk to the Mercado just past the parking garage to see a food hall with lots of affordable local options! 4. The rooms are standard, nothing to write home about. We had a great view of the ocean and spent many nights on the balcony taking in the sights.

    My friends and I stayed at the hotel couples days. Efrain Diaz from Caribe Bar provided us with an excellent service. Recommended the best drinks and places to visit. Breakfast was spectacular, avocado toasts are delicious and their coffee with milk is unique. Thanks to Brito for his love and respect. The hotel is a 15 minute walk to old San Juan, a beautiful site with many history. In addition to old San Juan the hotel is located just 5 minutes from the square, where they have several bars and places to dance. Cute detail from Efrain of Caribe bar in surprising with a happy birthday cake. Also thanks to Beny, Josue, Rafael and Hector ( the jockey man) great job guy.
