    Great hotel and staff right on the beach

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. The staff was so helpful and friendly. We arrived early so they held our luggage while we went out by the pool/beach for some food. Room was spacious and clean. The pool bar staff are awesome. They even sang happy birthday to my daughter for her birthday. The restaurants had great food and service. There are vendors on the beach but are not pushy like we have experienced at other locations. Beach chairs and umbrellas were always there for you to use. Beautiful hotel.

    El san juan hotel

    This is a great and wonderful hotel that has alot to offer. It's overall appearance is breath taking and the lobby is very nostalgic and romantic. It has a fifties look to it with all the woodwork and hanging chandeliers.

    El San Juan Hotel

    This was our first stay at El San Juan Hotel in San Juan, PR. The hotel we typically stay is undergoing renovations, so we had to find another hotel. Luckily, we found this one, as we will stay here from now on. The grounds look impeccable. They have worked so hard to rebuild and make things amazing for the guests. The gym is probably the best resort gym we have used ever. The meals were fresh and tasty. Room service top notch. Parking on site. We were made to feel so important and comfortable. If you go, make sure you try the watermelon/cucumber mojito, it is delicious and I drank one every day! AND the beach is stunning.

    Beautiful hotel! Restaurant needs improvement

    Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms! We had an amazing view of the main pool and gorgeous beach. All employees were super friendly, helpful and we were able to get an early check in. Our only suggestion would be to the manager of Caña Restaurant. While the food is ok, for those prices and in this hotel, we expected better service. The staff gives the “being on island time” saying a whole new meaning.

    Amazing hotel!

    This hotel is SO dreamy! The service is spectacular, the lobby, entertainment, nightlife. Truly an unbelievable experience. Also super close to all the excursions we did in San Juan and in old San Juan. The beach is steps away. The pools are clean and beautiful. I don’t have one negative comment about my stay.
