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.

    Amazing Attentive Staff!!!!! Beautiful Property!!!!!

    Greetings from the Windy City Chicago, When I arrived at the hotel to check in Miguel immediately greeted me with a smile. The check in process was seamless and very informative, Miguel made sure to go over all the amenities of the hotel which was very helpful. I also want to recognize your lobby bar staff Efrain, Rafael Angel, Benigno, Ariel, Frank as well as your pool bar staff Hiram, Virgie, Robert, Fernando, Miguel, Jose and Walter. They were all amazing and very attentive. I will return due to the great service I received from them all. Please pass on my comments as they deserve to be recognized. Kind Regards,

    Wonderful Property!

    My wife and I decided to hit this hotel for an anniversary getaway. The staff, lobby/restaurants, beach, location etc were second to none! They put a ton of effort into the hotel remodeling, and it shows. We truly had a wonderful experience, in a great part of a world-class city.

    Very enjoyable stay!

    Great location and fantasic service. Amazing views of the beach! The Caribe Hilton is very historic - it's where the pina colada was invented. It got clobbered in Hurricane Maria and they did a great job of restoring it and opening it after nearly a year-and-a-half. We had a great stay there. They also have a beautiful spa!
