Friendly staff. Nickle & Dimed. Pre-arranged amenaties, spa services and payment. All was lost somewhere between the concierge and front desk; so had to change plans and credit card.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Facility was clean. Access to the ocean easy. Landscaping is mature and nice. This resort is confused. It has high end and empty jewellery stores but a down market casino and resultant clientele. The hotel has only one pool which doesn't function as a central location. The hotel itself has no atmosphere. Feels very loud and downmarket inside. The prices for food etc are extortionate. The hotel is located literally alongside the airport runway, so planes take off all day and evening beside you. Deafening noise on the beach. The beach is sketchy, not cleaned each morning. Bed service is managed by guys in a truck which spews exhaust over you and adds more noise. The beach isn't big enough to need that. Clientele smoke and in in case smoke weed on the beach so it blows all over you. Other clientele - the casino types - drink heavily in the beach and get loud etc. then there are the cell phone junkies talking loudly about their dreary lives at the top of their voices. Time to zone the beach.
Spa. And service The beach cafeteria takes too long and always gets the order wrong
Nice pool, though not for lap swimming. The jacuzzi was nice and hot, though it could use more jets. We enjoyed the Happy Hour with free beverages. The "free appetizers" are just taco chips and popcorn. The free breakfast is alright - get there early if you don't want to wait in a long line. Includes greek yogurt, fresh fruit, as well as hot foods. The hotel is a short walk from a beautiful beach, where the guest is supplied with free chairs and towels. Umbrellas may be available for those who arrive early. There are some great nearby restaurants, Metropol is one. "Old Town" is 6 miles away. Nice, but don't get stuck in all the gift shops unless you really enjoy that kind of thing. The WiFi is useless. There is loud music playing often, which can be heard in any room, as all rooms surround an atrium.
The pool was great but unfortunately no access to jacuzzi at night. Within walking distance to a nice beach. Service was extremely slow. Had to wait an hour for a tiny pizza at the pool area and it took us 45 mins to check out due to very slow service and not enough staff on a busy Sunday morning. Lastly, we ordered glasses to our room that never came and there was a dirty towel in the bathroom when we checked in.
Clean comfy and friendly I can't think of anything I like it
I guess the Outback at this location was a plus. Check in process. 2 workers working the front desk. One with her head down, another talking to another person on in maintenance. No feeling of being welcome at this property. Hotel room had cracked tile, mold and black spots in the tub in the bathroom. Also asked for a wine opener to enjoy a bottle of wine in our room. The bartender didn't have a wine opener!
Everything in this hotel is nice, Happy hour!! Just few blocks away from Ocean park beach. The only thing I didn't like is the parking fees ..
The beds were great, clean and perfectly firm. Pool was very nice. We liked that they provided chairs and towels on the beach even though it wasn't beachfront. The free happy hour is a huge plus. There was a good amount of mold on the tile in the tub- I like to take baths when in hotels because I don't have a tub at home, so this was kind of gross. It is very loud from people in the atrium area as well as the loud music they play in the pool. I still slept pretty well since the beds are far away from the door closest to the atrium. Overall good value for the money. I wish there were microwaves in the room since a grocery store is nearby.
This hotel was clean and had a lot to offer for the price! Although not located on the beach it was only a 4 min walk and worth the scenic route! The breakfast and the free happy hour made the trip!
Beautiful hotel right on the water. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Airport was very close and you could hear the planes at times. The food at the hotel restaurants was over priced at night. I wish the pool side restaurant was open all day.
Good location and facilities, not a big Hotel, everything was easily accessible. Remodeling job in progress above the first room they gave us, the noise was disturbing, room was outdated. The second room they gave us, after our complaint was on a higher floor and recently updated. Why not gave a clean, updated and silent room on first instance?
Restaurants on the beach had great views and delicious food. Hotel was very clean. You get charged for every little thing.
The beach area and nightlife N/a
Staff was very nice and place was beautiful restaurants were very good We had a lot of problems with ac first night
Location is pretty good -- right across from the sea, and in the middle of Isla Verde. Looks like an poor old building with a little jazzed up lighting to make it "hip" -- and charge the extra $$$. For some reason staff seemed bored and unfriendly (in total contrast to other good hotels in SJ -- like El Convento, and the Vanderbilt).
The location and view The extreme lack of cleanliness. The food was deplorable as well.
Convenient location, helpful staff, and good wifi. Shower temperature was nearly impossible to control, shower head flow poor. Room was tiled rather than carpeted.
Location great. Staff very helpful. Mist bar too windy. Hotel looks terrible during day but hides it all at night with darkness and blue lights. Gym is worst I have ever experienced. It is empty of equipment and miniature. Pool is overly small. I have been all over the world and this was the worst value for my money ever. This is truly worth $150 per night max.
Friendly staff Waterfall in elevators Biting sand fleas on beach Not oceanfront...Road separates hotel from beach Creepy drowned woman photo on bedroom ceiling Loud sounds from rooftop bar radiate into room Small bathroom Hard mattress
Quiet, even next to the elevator. Friendly staff. Value. 15$ for valet parking, no choice.
The staff made the experience even better! Everyone was super nice, but Dani, the bartender that works the rooftop bar, made me want to plan another trip there. He was super attentive and even brought us drinks while we were lounging by the pool! I never had to repeat what I had ordered with him. I could also see that he remembered what everyone else ordered as wel. So if you wanted a refill, he already knew what your drink of choice was! Super amazing personality!
Nice chick place. Rooms are good, only mattress under you might report its excessive mileage it loud fashion. Otherwise nice stay. good roof top bar and restaurant food is great.
This place is great. Clean comfortable room with WiFi. The staff is very nice and helpful. There are two restaurants on site - one is on the rooftop with a pool. If you want to journey out for food, there a two bar/restaurants just down the street that are very friendly. The location is not on a main road, so there is no hustle an bustle in front of the hotel. Towels and chairs are supplied on it's beach front location. I have been here twice and am definitely coming back again.
Excellent venue. Poor staff. Very stuffy. Don't use Uber as the staff will ask you to have the Uber pick you up at the curb vs the hotel entrance.
I love the service everyone was so kind and helpful. The hotel was beautiful inside and out.
The rooms were luxurious yet charming, the staff was very helpful and the pool/lounge area was great Not much to dislike.
Everything was Fantastic
Beautiful room - even the pull out couch was extremely comfortable - memory foam mattress! The lobby staff (registration, concierge, bell hop, etc) was very attentive and friendly. The hotel has a very classic feel of old luxury. I would definitely stay there again! The beach was actually over at the neighboring hotel, they said we would have full service at their beach but every time we went, they were "out" of umbrellas on the Vanderbilt side of the beach. We counted and they only had about 12 umbrellas in total for Vanderbilt guests which is ridiculous! Also the are designated for Vanderbilt is over in the corner without a direct view of the ocean. I was disappointed.
We had an excellent time, highlight was that our room window opened fully, facing the ocean. Beautiful!
The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Pools were lovely and clean (slightly chilly for my taste). Adults only area was nice. Only tried the patio restaurant which was very good, but pricey ($50 for french toast, OJ, single egg and sausage). Room air conditioner had issues. Maintenance was unable to solve the issue and did not notify front desk that the issue was not fixed.
Still holding money on my credit card.
Everything! outdoor spaces, great food, rooms spacious and confortable, amazing view of the ocean everywhere. One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Would love to come back.
El mar y la piscina maravillosos ..... Nada todo me gusto
I arrived at 3:40 pm and was told that the room I booked is not available. The front desk staff guaranteed that it would be ready by 4pm, but when I came back at 4:06pm I was told again the room is not ready. I finally checked in by 5pm and nobody explained why. They gave me two key cards and one doesn't work which kept me out of the room when I came back from swimming the other day. It is the most terrible experience that I have and I definitely don't recommend this hotel
Great pool for toddlers! Awesome restaurants and service. For lunch La Isla restaurant kebobs are highly recommended. Our room had a ocean view that ir worth the extra money. Beach is great but watch out for little kids cause waves are unpredictable and can get very strong from one second to another. I suggest keep them at the shore.
Our family loved the close proximity to the beach. Taxis were too expensive. There's not enough public transportation.
Staff is really courteous, upgraded our room for free. Always smiling, will help you no matter what. Had an amazing stay, and will definitely come back again.
EMPLOYEES VERY NICE WORK VERY HARD TO PLEASE YOU LOBBY MUSIC VERY LOUD I USED EAR PLUGS
Service from the staff was excellent. View from our room was fantastic. Room and grounds were kept very clean. Beach was lovely and kept clean. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to return. A little pricey. Also someone was smoking on their balcony. We could not sit on our balcony one evening because of the smokers. I was told that the hotel policy allows smoking on the balconies as long as their balcony door remains shut. That may be fine to keep smoke out of the room but it doesn't help guests in nearby rooms. Smoking should not be allowed anywhere on the grounds, including balconies.
I love how they had all the Amenities on site, and the Staff was Polite always willing to help and offer refreshments. The Rooms had a little Moldy Smell. Other wise my kids love the Pool and the Beach.
We loved the amenities, cleanliness , and attentiveness of staff in addition the local of the hotel to all different conviniences Nothing to dislike
Nice hotel, a little bit old Staff members are great Location is one of the best in San Juan Nice Beach front, nice poll area, everything else is below average You have CSV, Walgreens, and many restaurants walking distance Everything is overpriced Rooms are old and small Bar is noisy and crowd not cool at all Casino area looks aweful I didn't wasted time on it
Wonderful live music at pool and in lobby. Beautiful beach, plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Nice pool, just a little chilly. Food is so-so and overpriced (no big surprise).
Location is amazing. Condado area is vibrant. Great restaurants, great sightseeing. Our room had roaches and after getting a minor upgrade, things went downhill. In the fine print, breakfast package excluded my 12 year old daughter, which put us in a weird place because we were then forced to pay for the overpriced breakfast or take her somewhere to eat. The hotel muddled up our booking. We received wrong expectations about our room, which ended up Being small and cramped. Hotel management isn't empowered to take care of customers and we received an "it-is-what-it-is" attitude from the staff. After asking, they said that for a discounted fee, we could upgrade. The total amount meant $250 out of pocket which we couldn't do. This was even after letting them know it was our first time staying there and we were in town to celebrate my brother in law's birthday. The hotel restaurant's food was bland and the quality is not 4 star level. Chefs couldn't even get a boiled egg right for our 18-month old. Every morning, we had to request it at least twice. Room service was poor and slow: a simple order of chicken tenders with ice cream jumped from $12 to $23, between tax and the high delivery fee. To make things worse, after almost an hour, the order arrived with missing silverware and napkins for which we had to call again. Was so let down by this experience. Go to La Concha a block down. The few extra dollars will be well worth it.
Great staff and great accommodations! We only ate once at this hotel but it was very pricey but the food was above average. Hotel is in a great location and is within walking distance of many restaurants and other attractions. I would visit again! Obviously pricing of hotel restaurants is going to be pricey but it was pretty steep. I wish they offered something along the lines of a free continental breakfast. Other than this I cannot complain!
I saw all the resorts and this on has the best bang for your buck. I am a young doctor and went with my girlfriend and did extensive research on best water front resorts and this is the one because of the pool and service. Becareful other hotels are in front of rocky beaches that will ruin your vacation. This has great beach prime location and amazing options on things to do.
Pros: Lobby: very clean, with friendly staff at front desk. Nice aquarium. Free water and coffee. Plenty of room to sit and lounge with descent music and accessible large screen televisions. Location: across the street from walgreens. On the corner of Ashford Avenue. Most places within walking distance. Cons: Wrong room: we reserved a king bed but instead we were given two Queens without being told. We found when we walked into the room that it was the wrong room. The front desk eventually corrected the mistake Poor vector control: there were ants and roaches in the room. ants on the carpet and night stand. Woken up to a dead roach on the floor near the door Poor AC: the window AC wasn't able to make the room cooler than 73 degrees Fahrenheit despite the setting being at a lower number Dirty towels: the white towels had stains on them and would leave lint on the skin after drying off Bedding: stiff bed. Their was no underlying bed liner Parking : an open lot behind the hotel with no visible security presence.
Good breakfast included, friendly staff, and convenient parking lot next to hotel for $17/day. Only negative was that the location was loud and noisy at night (due to busy popular location) and we were woken up while sleeping.
Nice amenities. Very clean and accesible. Comfortable. Nice breakfast. The bathroom smelled too much to clorox. Expensive parking.
The distance to the beach, the location in terms of dining/night life Everything was great at the hotel except breakfast. We stayed there for 4 days and 3 out of 4 there was at least something to eat but the las day was going into the weekend so it got busier. By 8:45 AM all the food was gone and they had nothing to re-fill it with. It wasn't just one item but omelettes, side, sausage, cereal, and even pastrywas gone. When I asked the floor manager if they have absolutely anything to eat he was very unapologetic and said we should have come earlier
GREAT value in an AWESOME location with great views! Nothing
Cleanliness and lots to do within walking distance All the homeless people laying around in the area
Everybody was so nice to us! Needs room service ASAP
Overall service. It was ok. No identifiable faults.
Some of the rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The location is superb; close to highways (but not too close), many restaurants, the beach, convenience stores and many other atractions. The lobby looks great and the staff, at first impression (see "What did't you like?" section), seems knowledgeable, useful and amicable. Management decided that 3:00 AM on a Tuesday was the perfect time to, using pneumatic hammers and drills, install a sign on the exterior of the nroth tower (where I was staying)!! After some negotiations (you would had thought this was a given) with the front desk they agreed to move me to a room in the south tower. However, that room was not clean, the bed was not amde and the closet doors would not open. The front desk offered to send maintenance to fix everything...AT 9:00 AM!!! Once again it took some convincing, but they finally move me to a clean and, more importanly, quiet room. The hotel manager promised to credit my account with two nights and parking fees; however, during check-out they refused to give me a receipt saying that it would be emailed to me. I am still waiting for the email or the credit.
The bathrooms were amazing! Balcony, the buffet style breakfast in the morning was amazing! After a week the bed got hard but that was the only thing!
Excellent staff and breakfast Nothing
Love the accommodation,cleaning,staff was great Not family hotel,there's nothing for kids even teenager It's very expensive,we pay $21.00 dollar just for a bottle of water and a banana smoothie by the pool
the atmosphere and the nightclub,
the booking was mixed up from the time of inception i had to call booking .com because el san jaun did not have my reservation the hotel checked us out of our room on august 2nd instead of august 3rd like reserved and the room rate was very high with a view of brick walls the pool was shut down from august 2-4 i'm notpleased with the whole experience
The location was great No microwave for guest to use
Beach area is beautiful There are plenty of pool options Lots of eating options on the grounds (all are pricey such as $25 for a burger, fries, and a Coke) Our room wasn't ready even though it was after 3:00pm, so we got a $50 hotel credit! Near an area with good food options like US chains, US fast food, Puerto Rican/Dominican foods, bakeries, pizza, and burgers. It felt like overall they need to update the grounds They are charging you based on what the hotel used to be in it's glory days, not what it currently is. Mini fridge kept popping open/didn't cool drinks that well. You need to get to the pool area by 10:00 to get a bed or chair with un umbrella.
Beautiful older resort close to Resturants Way over priced. Payed 400 total for room for one night and had to pay 50$ to use the pool and beach area. I would never stay at this hotel again.
Ballroom, Restaurant Meat Market and La picolla Fontana, Lobby music, casino A/C of the room was good Housekeeping staff were always talking on the corridors in the floor and with there cellphones on with loud music. Curtains of the room were broken Space of bathroom is too small and uncomfortable I tried to call from the room phone to housekeeping and nobody answer it. Floor of the room was not clean after housekepping The A/C of the lobby was too warm
The central Areas inside the hotel were chic and clean. The outside areas around the pool were not cared for. There was trash laying around that the staff would walk by... it rained part of the time we were there and instead of removing the chair cushons or even flipping them on their side they simply let the cushons gather rain water on them... when the rain stopped, they would simply throw the towels on the chairs over a puddle of water. The room was just okay. They charge ridiculous prices for everything!
The staff very nice!! Great music entertainment. Great restaurants and shops. The casino was very nice too. Food. Needs more authentic Puerto Rican food. ;)
Very comfortable and relaxing rooms . And there is plenty to do and very close to airport .
great location. great restaurants. clean rooms! Staff was very attentive. Pool side bars had very slow service.
The front desk staff upon check-in was very welcoming, helpful and informative. I love that the physical integrity of the lobby has not been changed (yet). The entertainment (Calma Carmona) on Thursday night at the lounge was amazingly talented! Hilton recently purchased the property and are in the process of a $60-million renovation project. The soft opening was February 5, 2017 -- two weeks prior to our stay. According to the staff we spoke with there are currently only 50 rooms completed and available for rental. This became obvious when the hammering and drilling started at 7:30AM! Sleeping-in while on vacation was impossible. The casino in the lobby has been removed! This use to be a huge draw and great source of entertainment. Evidently there is no plan to replace it. The non-authentic food by the pool was less than mediocre. Although there were only 50 rooms available for rental there weren't enough chairs by the main pool with the swim-up bar to accommodate the guests. What will happen when they are at full capacity? The construction dust near the second pool made it difficult to relax and breathe.
Great place to stay at since it if very close to the cruise port. Wish they had a shuttle to pick up at the airport. Also pool was too small. Need different tile for the pool area because that tile is very slippery.
Great stay but had ask repeatedly for washcloths. Going green ( no maid service, just fresh towels ) was pefect....and received a $5 coupon each day you go green. Used it in the restaurant. Downside, they forgot to give it to us one day. And still no washcloths!! Another downside, cable reception was horrible all 4 nights!!! No TV for longer than 20 or so minutes. Very aggravating. So dont expect to relax to a movie or occupy the kiddies while you get ready for dinner. Front desk never had an answer and nothing they could do. Otherwise, great location, comfy beds, quiet hallways at night.
The location was great for walking they old San Juan and to get on cruise ship. A/C in our room didn't work. Only received two channels on tv. Advertised as having its own casino inside hotel and there was no casino. Very disappointed.
Very comfortable bed and size of the room. Some hallway noise.
The hotel is in a great location for touring Old San Juan. Taxi access great and right on the waterfront. The staff and service here is perfect. It's so unbelievably overpriced for a mid-range style Sheraton it made us choke paying their prices. However, they know they can hold you hostage with those prices given the other hotel options in Old San Juan. Its quite loud in the hallways, but I must say the location is awesome.
Great hotel. People very helpful to make it the best stay ever Luv everything
Expensive and noisy. Nice location
Great location, right in old San Juan. Casino was fun at night. Rooftop pool was fun during the day. No view from our room, but that wasn't a big deal.
Nice view to the bay, pretty roof swimming pool and good gym No parking, bad service in the front desk. No attention to the guest. They send me to the wrong room with a family inside... They don't pay attention to what they do in the front desk. Not possible to book in the front desk the man make me reserve through a phone and it was not possible. At the end, I had to make the booking on my cellphone because they were not kind enough to make me a reservation.
The hotel was very convenient. It is walking distance from the cruise port and the rest of Old San Juan. Staff very friendly.
Perfectly located for visitors looking to explorer Old San Juan on foot. the entire staff was exceptionally helpful with points of interest and restaurants in the area. Will definitely stay there upon our next visit Wish they had a café or store that was open extended hours.
Would really like my money back. I have told everyone I know to NOT book through Kayak nor stay at this girl.
Great location, large rooms and good facilities in the room An older property and it shows
Location and beach access Pay for wifi
Accomodations were good! Staff friendly! Bad 70's decorating! Needs to be gutted!
Loved having a small kitchen in the room! Balcony overlooking ocean was nice. Can't beat location (short ride to old san juan, plenty in isla verde, 45 min to rainforest). What felt like the entire place was being renovated so the noise and construction areas were less than desirable.
Excellent location, many restaurants in the neighborhood. Bar was fun, free drinks a bonus. Room had a full kitchen which made meals easy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, they do not have a restaurant that serves dinner. It would have been nice on arrival and it was rather late and we were tired. But the little store in the lobby had soup!
Very dirty bathroom and room
We liked the location of the hotel. Lots of restaurants in walking distance. This is an old hotel. It is undergoing some renovation though. We had no hot water in our shower and complained several times. It never was resolved.
Convienience to everything around you such as night clubs, restaurants, and the beach The room air conditioner was not working properly and it caused condensation in the room all our clothes, sheets were damp.
Convience of having parking on site, location was excellent and facilities on site helped save time. In the laundry room, there were only two working dryers, and six were out of service.
the staff was very freindly,and helpful. no futher comment on the hotel yes,
The Manager was very helpful, unfortunately I had to go to her to address my problems. Room space was generous and the swimming pool is good. Some items went missing and no one was able to find it. In addition, at the check-in, I was told that the beach chairs were included in my reservation, but when I tried to get them I was charged 8 dollars!
Location Bathroom toilet had a handle like a urinal to flush Not as clean as it could have been Rooms need some updating Booked a room with king bed and wound up getting two doubles
It was clean, in order and as expected. Very inexpensive and welcoming. The bathroom is small, but what else does one need. Not much else is neededZ if you want a large bathroom, this isn't the place for you. If you are okay with what a human needs, it's perfect.
The professionalism is A+++++. We missed our flight and the staff did everything possible to accommodate us back to the hotel. We were so happy and thankful for their services. None
I've had a pleasant stay on many occasions except this time. I stayed in 2 rooms and had to ask for the linen to be changed in both. Hair was found in the blanket on both beds! Gross!! Once is an oversight, twice is an issue.
The staff was hands down some of the best i have ever dealt with. Location was good, within walking distance from the beach, plenty of places to eat at the hotel and in the surrounding area. You have to pay for parking no matter if you are a guest of the hotel, which is very ridiculous. The floor needed to be vacuumed and the shower was dirty.
The Wine and Tapas Bar was short handed. During special events the Bar needs two peop l e to staff. The food was very good but the distance from kitchen is a problem. Better communications needed.
Updated facilities Good reliable wi-fi Beach across the street Plenty of restaurants in the area Friendly and helpful staff Bus right in front of hotel
THE WHOLE ROOM WAS VERY NICE EMPLOYEE WERE VERY HELFUL IN TAKING CARE OF US TO MAKE OUR STAY WOUNDERFUL THE RACKET COMING FROM THE OTHER ROOM WAS SLOVED BY THE EMPOYEE WORKING THAT NIGHT THANK YOU DOREEN SOMNER
Good location across from the beach, near the airport, and close to attractions and shopping. Comfortable room. Beautiful Lobby The pizza restaurant on site is awesome. The girl that works there was super nice! Nice bar I lobby A few of the front desk staff need customer service training. 1 was just plain rude! Confusion over my 2nd day reservation on their end but I had to physically go down to the lobby and show them my confirmation. 5 minutes later I get a call from another person asking if I needed a late check out. What?!?! I literally just showed you my confirmation for TWO nights. There is a nice large pool but only 8 loungers and 2 tables. Our group of 3 and another couple had to lay or sit on our towels on the concrete. Lack of lightning in the room, but it's a boutique hotel so I guess that's expected. Charge at check out was $40 more than what was quoted when I booked.
Well maintained despite not being a new resort; Modern, comfortable and clean rooms; Large staff and very friendly and accommodating; Adult pool! It was the most quiet and least congested area. Not sure some people knew it was there. If you like resorts and don't mind the crowds you will enjoy this hotel. Party-like atmosphere on the weekend- if that's what you want you will have a great time. Personally, I didn't like the music on the beach. Also, the beach is fairly narrow and the main beach area and pool area are both crowded with chairs very close to one another. I prefer more space and don't want to be sitting an inch away from a total stranger. It can be tough to find the sun in the afternoon when the hotel casts a shadow on the beach. Scope out a good spot early.
The beach and pool facilities are great My room did not electricity for 48 hours, the hotel would not offer much more than a complimentary buffet breakfast.
Wonderful service, style and ambience. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Modern look that is on the beach with pools and in a nice area. Every part of the hotel was clean including the gym and toilets. The restaurants were also excellent with good choices and healthy options available. Overall awesome and would definitely recommend this luxurious hotel. Resort fees. I feel that the hotel is priced right and that there is no reason to tack on resort fees. Drinks a little pricey
location and beach were great.
All 3 pools were beautiful. Definitely worth the upgrade to an OceanView Suite. The views are out of this world! Restaurants all had good food, even poolside. Pleasantly surprised. Would definitely return To PR and stay here again. Nothing to complain about
hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. hotel was right on the water, great drinks and food. Located in a nice area to walk around at any time of the day. Close to shopping, and local restaurants. Hotel guests were a mix of families, couples, business, and groups of friends. There was an adult only pool as well as 3 others. Will definitely be going back and staying here!
Loved the suite with full kitchen. Would do this again! HOusekeeping was not cleaning room if I did not ask or let them know I was out. Room did not get made up last day at all, and I was out all day.
Beautiful hotel with open lobby and modern clean feeling. Even though the reservation was a prepaid, I still got hosed with a resort fee. A couple of bottles of water and a beach chair shouldn't cost 25 bucks. Got the runaround as to why my Marriott status was worth nothing at this resort property.
Vibrant, entertaining but also relaxing and luxurious. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The facility was clean, never noticed bathroom soap, towels, tissue empty or a mess. Room was a suite with ample space, balcony and kitchenette. It seemed much more suited to adults only but there were families. Location was great, right on the beach. Bikes were available which we took into Old San Juan. I would stay here again and again with adults. On occasion, I felt that the music was too loud (ack! I'm getting old!) But that was really it.
I loved the 3 different pool options. We used the adult pool the entire time, which is much quieter and has a beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Most staff were so friendly and helpful. Menu is pretty reasonable and prices are comparable to surrounding area, except quality is much much better. Tuna salad was my favorite thing by far. Mixed drinks were weak and pricey. Rules weren't always enforced. Example, there was a 5 year old at the adult pool for about 2 hours until someone finally noticed. We were also told we couldn't bring our own mixed drinks to the pool, yet others would blatantly have a 6 pack from cvs out in the open. Hallways were a little dingy.
Everything was so unbelievably great. The staff was awesome, the views were spectacular, the water sports were on point, proximity to the center of old san juan and condado center. extreme value for the money.
Loved the salt water pool, the oceanfront hammocks, the different restaurant options in the hotel, the 24 pool/hot tubs, very friendly and accommodating staff The rooms were very small and didn't have a dresser
I liked the beach being right there Wifi didn't work for a few hours tons of problems, when we told staff they said that they would call att, they said nothing was wrong with it, finally me fiddling with my phone, and almost a day later we got it to work. But the one thing that pissed me off, was the fact that they have hidden fees like a deposit of some kind that no one tells you before you go, which you if you pay that deposit with a debit card you're screwed because you have to wait 2 weeks to get it back. Everything is absolutely overpriced even the water. So what I did to frugal with my money was that i bought snacks and water so i wouldn't have to be $5 for a bottle of water. I could go on, but I didn't like it and will not stay here again
Outdated and deteriorated exterior facade. Bar area can use an update. It's a good 20 years behind. More outdoor seating can be added to the terrace.
The staff was very friendly and helpful at the check in. The rooms are very clean and modern. Good location. No room service. No water bottles in the room, if you want something to drink or eat you have to go to the lobby or a cafe in the second floor.
I loved the pools, swim up bar, the food was good too! The staff was super friendly and the place was very clean! The beach is man-made, very small, and the ocean is more like an inlet.
I loved the location. The hotel staff was fabulous. Very friendly and willing to help. The door to my balcony was permanently locked. I would have like to have had access to the balcony.
The Condado Plaza is a great bargain to escape the Winter blues and the excessive snows of the northeast. The staff is pleasant and helpful. When we first arrived and checked in, the room we were assigned had a defective AC unit and it was a humid swamp. I went to the front desk and explained the problem and was immediately moved to another room with working AC. The front desk staff was polite and personal. The hotel needs updating. It appears to have had a renovation in many of the public areas and the rooms. Those areas have a boutique hotel vibe, but the carpet in the hallways of the room floors need to be replaced.
Remote didn't work. Exhaust fan in bathroom didn't work Room stains on counter and the floor that were not cleaned from previous guest. I checked in after 10 pm and was too tired to asked for a different room , then the remote didn't work, again too too tired to call but in the morning when the exhaust fan fan in bathroom did not work I, thought the view was not worth it.
Beautiful hotel and amazing location with some great amenity options. The staff was very poorly trained and had terrible customer service skills. In our stay we got completely ignored by a consierge, had to wait to check in an hour after the check in time, a stuffed animal taken from our room by house keeping never to be returned. To top it off the walls are painfully thin, and a group of 6 teenagers got checked in next to us. Loved the location but will stay elsewhere at my next visit.
The taxes were supposed to be encluded- they were not!!
What's not there to like? There's nothing there not to like!
Liked the pool and beach. Service was horrible. Staff wasn't friendly. Had to ask front desk 3 times for someone to unclog our bathroom shower (super unhygienic) and after everything was said and done they didn't come to fix it or move us rooms. They didn't even compensate us for the horrible inconvenience. The place felt really run down and in a not so safe location for walking around. Additionally the bathroom wouldn't stop flushing all night so the sound of water was really annoying. Not to mention the smell of this rancid running water. Waist experience at an intercontinental (which I'm truly a fan of usually).
Nothing I paid a butt-ton of money to stay at this hotel. The girl at the front desk didn't even say hello to me when I was checking in. That says it all right there. Then she hit me with a massive resort fee, which definitely was not worth it. Then I said to her: "If you're going to hit me with an 18 percent resort fee, you might want to ease the blow with a simple greeting." Probably won't be headed back to Puerto Rico anytime soon. I'll just stay in NY where people treat you like shit, but at least you're still in NY.
Had to spend one extra day in PR after vacation elsewhere, and we randomly picked the IH. We were pleasantly surprised. They let us do early check-in 4 hours before the regular time. The room was very comfortable for all 4 of us, and the beds were super comfortable. The facilities were also great, beautiful pools and of course a nice beach. Will be back for a longer stay next time. It's not inexpensive, but still a good value.
The location is right on the beach, close to the airport. Good views from the ocean facing rooms. We were on the 16th floor and it was great. Lots of restaurants nearby and within the hotel. The rooms are spacious and the bed is comfortable. Great housekeeping staff, very friendly and helpful Sand fleas...a tiny bug that bites like a mosquito/bed bug. They were all over in our room. This was before we had even stepped on the beach, so they were there before we came and stayed with us till the end. We had to apply bug repellent to sleep and not be bitten. No activities by the hotel. They charge a resort fees but it feels more like a traditional hotel rather than a resort. Tiny bathrooms No easy access to clothes dryer, c'mon you are on the beach.
location to beach and pool Dollar you to death. They charge 22.00 a day for beach taxes and do not tell you to you check out and then apply it to the 200.00 that you must put down when check in. ( THIS IS JUST FRAUD ). when I paid 6.00 usd to use there computer in there business center, the internet would not work. They refused to refund my money. Told me to come back tomorrow and i could use the computer for free. I told them i was checking out today and wanted credit for my 6.00. I was told by management they could not refund me. Due to these hidden cost, we moved to a different hotel.
Staff was great! Location Excellent it was close to the airport but you didn't hear the airport!
The staff, the view Sliding door to balcony was hard to open and close.
The staff was friendly This is not an all inclusive resort, it does not even offer breakfast. We do not feel like we got our money's worth.
The rooms are clean, facility well kept, and staff friendly The bed was not as comfortable as we expected
The cleanliness was great, housekeeping department was extraordinary. The people at the Cafe on the lobby were great. Some of the staff at the front desk were not that polite as I was expecting since I am an SPG member.
I loved the Club Lounge. The breakfast was superb. Every staff member I interacted with was super friendly and helpful. The food was very expensive and to be honest, the yellow walls reminded me of a high school (and not the good kind).
Housekeeping is mediocre, they take too much time to get the whole floor clean.
Rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was warm and friendly. Loved the total non-smoking environment which amazingly included the casino. We also appreciated having the green option available for opting out of daily room service. Had difficulty getting service in their restaurant in the evenings. In fact, one evening we were the only two patrons and after being seated for 10+ minutes with no waitperson approaching us, we left to go eat elsewhere. However, breakfast was great!
Good location and hotel looks great The bedding. The sheets were really dirty and if you pull the comforter up to the light you can see all the dust and deadskin That has been collecting into the comforter and it is digusting.
The infinity pool was great! Rooms were nice and beds were extremely comfortable. The rooms didn't have vents and the food and drinks are expensive.
Love the casino love the Metropole restaurant love the pool I don't like it there is not a beach in the hotel
Hotel is clean and friendly staff Location isn't the best taxi to old San Juan was about 15.00 dollars each way. No restaurants nearby so you have to get a taxicab and can become costly.
It was close to convention center. It does not have facilities to clean your clothes at your own. It should have a small laundry area. I stayed 4 days for a volleyball tournament, and I had to clean the uniforms by hand everyday. They just have a few fridges we were put on a wait list and never call us.
The view the infinitity pool and the casino The staff at nice and also they don't change your sheets everyday unless it's requested
Every staff interaction was terrific. Friendly, eager, helpful, welcoming. Front desk, restaurant (tapas bar, food and staff shine!) History just walks the halls with you! The rooftop pool and hot tub with harbor view at sunset was something special. Then we left a coat behind, and discovered it after our cruise ship left, they packed it up and Shipped it home. Having to leave so soon. Should have booked a much longer stay!
It's a historic building with an invaluable art collection. Their claim to have a pool is ludicrous.
I liked everything. The staff was incredibly accommodating. The hotel itself was amazing and exactly what I wanted, which was a place with character and charm. Do yourself a favor and stay here.
Beautiful hotel, wonderful hosts, located in an old world city.
The attention to detail and quality was evident in the furnishings and finishes of the hotel. The staff as courteous and responsive and the daily guest wine and cheese reception was a nice touch. It's location is hard to beat and the hotel blends well into the historical city of Old San Juan. There is a lot of traffic directly outside. Not good for early check in.
It was in the right between the old and the new city.
I like the exclusive beachfront and pool area with the view and close proximity to old San Juan. The staff was rude and sarcastic except for two which I came across towards the end my stay but far in between. Was treated as if we didn't matter since my arrival. Was told I could check in early as long as I paid a $75 fee when I spoke to them over the phone a day earlier and once I arrived was told I had to wait and I waited 6 hours.
I really love everything about the Caribe Hilton: the lovely and calm beach, the food, the location, etc. I first came here in 1976 on my honeymoon and have returned twice! Lovely gardens and great service. Prices are very high, especially breakfast!
Awesome views, friendly/helpful staff, and beautiful private beach. Best resort in PR!
This hotel is in a good location in San Juan, close to the airport, Old San Juan, and La Placita Sancturseas. Pretty beach area and overall appears to have nice banquet and resort amenities. From the website the location on the ocean looks appealing. Unaware of the additional resort charge I encountered when checking in. All additional services extremely expensive and gougingly high for mediocre service. Got sick from the food twice, facilities were dirty, loud and ill kept. Additional cost for ocean view balcony was not even close to that was described online. Perhaps it was just the timing and this hotels abundance of touristas that can't grasp good service from udderly piss poor hospitality and lodging. I've been to San Juan many times and travel frequently for work. Was absolutely accosted at the price, the additional resort charge and the complete disarray I found the resort to be in. Will most likely never stay at a Hilton chain again due to this experience. Not to rant on this as I'm pretty low maintenance, have worked many years in hospitality and it takes little to appease me. This experience was grotesque and I will certainly be more diligent in future bookings. Encouraged in discounts and refunds offered by companies such as Expedia for poor customer services such as this. No more Hiltons for me and most likely the last visit to San Juan given the costs.
The hotel itself was very nice and fun, very nice overall design and loved the hot tubs. The rooms were very out dated and a little gross. Mold in bathroom and it need re-caulking.
the facilities pool and beach beautiful some rude personnel in valet parking
The location was excellent: right between old San Juan and Condessa. The pool was small but it was made for hanging around and sunning. Beautiful old ruins right next to the hotel made it picturesque. My view of the sea was beautiful. Pool food was a bit oily.
Let me start by saying that I am the type of person that reads negative reviews and most of the time ignores them because I feel some people can never be happy or they paid the price of a 2 star resort and expected services and amenities of a 6 star resort, that is not the situation with me and the Caribe Hilton. Also, I am not a newbie when it comes to travel. I cannot possibly fathom why someone would stay at this resort instead of going to an all inclusive in Aruba, Jamaica, River is Maya, etc... an all inclusive would be less than half the cost when considering food and drink (no exaggeration). Let me put it this way, if the Caribe Hilton was an all inclusive, it would be my least favorite all the resorts that I've been to but it is not all inclusive and you get price gouged with food and drink. Way, way, way too expensive for the value. You are not within walking distance to anything worth noting. Some will tell you that Old San Juan is within walking distance, that's bullcrap, unless you are a person that runs a couple miles every day it is not. It is close to a half hour walk. Who the hell wants to walk a half hour in 86 degree weather then walk up and down the hilly streets of Old San Juan all day then walk another half hour back to the hotel? The city did put in an awesome bicycle path so I guess you could do that, we didn't want to have to worry about them getting stolen while we shopping or eating. I enjoyed Old San Juan but if I wanted to visit again, it would be by a shore excursion while on a cruise. Our room was nice and clean. There were not that many people at the resort, wonder why, but you still couldn't get a good seat at the pool or Lagoon. The pools were small and freshwater and I worried because they didn't have chlorine the type of germs and things that were in it. The hotel was kind enough to put free fruit flavored water out for a few hours a day that ranged from refreshing to disgusting depending on the type of fruit. There was a wedding held there the Saturday we were there. An entire section of the beach was closed down and all the hammocks were removed because of the wedding. The hammocks were one of few things i enjoyed. At the end of the wedding, sometime between midnight and 1AM, someone decided to light off fireworks which I typically enjoy but not being woke out off a sound sleep and not going off feet from my room's balcony.The staff were friendly and helpful except when I was asked at checkout if I had a nice stay and I said not really, the girl just smiled and handed me my check. That was the icing on the cake for me, not only would I never stay at this resort again I would never stay at a Hilton again. For the grande finale, this hotel charges you a hotel fee on top of quoted price AND it is not cheap. Not sure if this is legal, but they know you can't do anything but gripe and moan because it isn't like you can walk to the hotel next door. Bottom line is if you are not concerned about money it's great
Updated, modern, clean room. Nice large bathroom. Bed is comfortable. Shouldn't have to pay for premium wifi. The tv channels were all blurry. Water pressure was terrible. Breakfast choices were only overpriced restaurants that were terrible. Don't recommend eating anywhere on the hilton grounds. I arrived early and was told I would be called or texted when a room was available. I never was and was watching the front desk as others checked in. Not good customer service. The a/c is motion activated so it won't keep the room cold if there isn't movement which sucks when you come in from the hot humidity of San Juan and it wouldn't cool down as much as the thermostat said it was set to. The room was hot for me. There is no noise buffering between the walls I heard conversations and music playing in the next room or as people walked down the hallway.
The staff were amazing and very accommodating The view was amazing, the hotel was very comfortable and easy to get around.
Hotel staff were friendly and informative. All areas of hotel were very tidy. I felt very welcomed and appreciated during my stay. The foot sham on the bed had stains. Cleaning service did not clean the glasses we used in the room. Hallways were quite cold for my taste. A bit pricey. Seems to be the norm in San Juan.
free cookies and ping pong table. staff was very friendly Lobby smelled like sewage. there was a stain on one of the towels. The bed comforter looked dirty, but I think it was actually the stuffing just clumped together from washing many times.
It was a wonderful experience. The staff was warm and friendly, and the room was immaculate.
Excellent staff and service Welcome cookies Resort fees but this would go for all hotels in the area. Parking options
Good location, lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
La localizacion Precios altos, el area de la picina pequeña y tenia muchas ojas. Me cobraron dos veces la trasancion y no me ofrecieron algún descuento o estadia. Aun espero por mi credito de vuelta.
Customer service House keeping. They took too long to clean our floor.
Poool open24 hour a thumbs up! Lost my eyeglasses , i called first they say they found one and later no trace of them.. .strange.
Live that the rooms were clean and modern. Staff was super friendly and helpful. It was a bit of a walk to hot spots. If you're ok with walking 10 minutes or more to the nearest hot spot then your stay will be a walk on the beach!
Good location, everything was clean, great staff. Parking not included.
Gave us access to Isla Verde Marriott courtyard facilities as well. Staff was great! Across the street from a supermarket, near plenty of restaurants. Hotel menu was unimpressive, pool area not attached to the beach, but really there is a ton to like about this hotel!
The building is gorgeous. Spanish style authentic feeling villa with some personality. Fairly short walk to the beach for a reasonable room price. Airport a bit too close. Also, I'm pretty sure the room I stayed in had bedbugs, but that problem seems to plague a number of area hotels.
Value price Proximity to airport and beach That San Juan allows burning of rubber tires close to beach and airport. On landing it looked like an airport fire and filled the air with accrid smoke upon arrival. The pool of our hotel, our rental car and I'm sure everywhere in San Juan was covered in tire ash the next day so nothing was usable. It didn't affect our travel plans but something to note when booking a hotel in San Juan as they seem to do this all the time.
The rooms were good, clean and were what we needed after a day of traveling or on the beach! Needs better WIFI access, other than that all was good.
Horrible hotel not worth the 100 bucks Everything
