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.
The rooms were luxurious yet charming, the staff was very helpful and the pool/lounge area was great Not much to dislike.
We had an excellent time, highlight was that our room window opened fully, facing the ocean. Beautiful!
Everything was Fantastic
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.
I love the service everyone was so kind and helpful. The hotel was beautiful inside and out.
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.
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.
El mar y la piscina maravillosos ..... Nada todo me gusto
Still holding money on my credit card.
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 hotel. People very helpful to make it the best stay ever Luv everything
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.
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.
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.
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.
Would really like my money back. I have told everyone I know to NOT book through Kayak nor stay at this girl.
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 hotel was very convenient. It is walking distance from the cruise port and the rest of Old San Juan. Staff very friendly.
Expensive and noisy. Nice location
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.
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.
EMPLOYEES VERY NICE WORK VERY HARD TO PLEASE YOU LOBBY MUSIC VERY LOUD I USED EAR PLUGS
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.
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.
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).
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
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 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.
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!
Our family loved the close proximity to the beach. Taxis were too expensive. There's not enough public transportation.
We loved the amenities, cleanliness , and attentiveness of staff in addition the local of the hotel to all different conviniences Nothing to dislike
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.
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.
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
Cleanliness and lots to do within walking distance All the homeless people laying around in the area
GREAT value in an AWESOME location with great views! Nothing
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.
Overall service. It was ok. No identifiable faults.
Excellent staff and breakfast Nothing
Everybody was so nice to us! Needs room service ASAP
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.
Nice amenities. Very clean and accesible. Comfortable. Nice breakfast. The bathroom smelled too much to clorox. Expensive parking.
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!
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.
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.
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
Wonderful service, style and ambience. Would go back in a heartbeat!
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!
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.
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.
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.
location and beach were great.
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 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 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
The taxes were supposed to be encluded- they were not!!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Staff was great! Location Excellent it was close to the airport but you didn't hear the airport!
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.
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.
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.
The staff, the view Sliding door to balcony was hard to open and close.
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.
Housekeeping is mediocre, they take too much time to get the whole floor clean.
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.
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
The rooms are clean, facility well kept, and staff friendly The bed was not as comfortable as we expected
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.
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.
Love the casino love the Metropole restaurant love the pool I don't like it there is not a beach in the hotel
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).
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.
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!
Location, secure access Older facility, the main building has apparently been under renovation for quite some time. On multiple visits I've learned quiet time after 10p doesn't apply to most guests... every stay there have been people talking loudly and children screaming until 1-2am.. then starting again 7am. Come for the beach, but don't expect much sleep.
Beautiful hotel, wonderful hosts, located in an old world city.
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.
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's a historic building with an invaluable art collection. Their claim to have a pool is ludicrous.
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!
Quiet Lack of hot water, and change of bathroom supplies as soap.
Large Suite Staff were friendly Pool and Beach Great Place for the kids Food and drinks pool side Hard to find when driving Carpets looked a little old Hot tub was not hot
Customer service was excellent. Prices, services. Even my arrive was late no body there at reception and the security guy was a really nice person and fix the problem. Thanks to Golden Sand my Vacation was excellent.
Very comfortable, way more than what I expected for what I paid. I stayed at the one suite bedroom which was Fully equipped with stove, micrlwave, coffeemaker (coffee was provided by housekeeping), fridge, plates and all kitchen utensils, washer and dryer and detergent was also supplied by housekeeping, living room had a sofa bed and a lcd plasma, internet, bedroom had a jacuzzi and a clean and comfortable king bed, iron and board, this suite also had a balcony with a partial ocean view and view to pool area... service was great, surroundings were nice, restaurants are ok, casino is ok beach is ok but PR has prettier beaches. Overall great experience and yes I will return!
The pool was very nice and heated Parking prices where too high for a hotel that has nothing around. The parking there is obviously just for the hotel. $15 a day seems a bit high for the area. The beach is not a pretty beach. I wouldn't go swimming in it.
This hotel was an okay last minute find. Facilities are clean, staff was awesome, and is not far from the metro area. Check in and check out hours are a little lame (check in is at 4pm and check out at 11am). I would be open to stay here again if I couldn't find anything else and if the price was right. More of a place where you take your kids. Check in/check out times Some stuff don't work in the room (lamp, thermostat) Carpet inside room looks very old and not that clean
Espectacular, el lugar, como te tratan, la amabilidad, las facilidad, la piscina super hermosa, en verdad me encantó mucho. Lo único q no me gustó es q hay un solo Jacuzzi y siempre estuvo lleno, y en la bañera del baño de habitación no había para taparla, no se podía llenar. Por lo demás todo exelente.
I loved the pool n the private beach..... very relaxing and all around a wonderful stay. Would definitely go again Everything was great there was nothing to not like
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.
Awesome views, friendly/helpful staff, and beautiful private beach. Best resort in PR!
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
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.
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.
It was in the right between the old and the new city.
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.
The staff were amazing and very accommodating The view was amazing, the hotel was very comfortable and easy to get around.
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!
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 location was perfect. It was next to a casino, Walmart and other food places and the concierge was very helpful. Scanning the parking ticket every time we left the hotel.
*Lo bueno; Es el mejor hotel del área metro en términos de valor por tu dinero. Excelente servicio, precio bien razonable, incluye desayuno, limpio, bastante nuevo, casino, plaza del sol y restaurantes. *Lo malo; Deben reservar estacionamientos para huéspedes. Las cortinas del cuarto no funcionaban.
Breakfast included hot choices, applebees and casino on premises. Overall good location. Room was spacious. Only hotel in this area, very much needed. Hotel staff very welcoming.... The pool area is very small and not very inviting.
the hotel is modern and new. Plaza del sol, a shpping mall is nearby. You have lots of establishments for eating. location depends in what do you plan to do. If yor are visisting old San Juan is far away fron the hotel. It is half an hour trip by car.
This hotel is new and are very clean an confort. Breakfast need to improve. It is self service. The service is not good.
Best thing about this hotel is the staff. They were all friendly and helpful. I would stay there again. Only downfall is lack of gluten free options for the breakfast.
Beds are super comfty and cozy, the air conditioning it's wonderfull, rooms were pretty and well decorated, lots of space in the room. The staff was nice Pool is super small, we could not enjoy it because it was full of little kids and there wasnt any space, parking is like $10 per night, and they ended charging more, food is a little expensive kitchen and lobby are in the same area not divided, there are not so manny fun things to do at the hotel
I liked the location close to my parent's house. The breakfast included on the price was excellent. The 24 snack bar had variety and the food was fresh. The staff was very nice and polite. The room was always clean. Thank you I would have liked the garage included on my price. The gym needs antibacterial sprays to clean equipment after you work out.
Location access to the hospital where my mother`s was being operated on. Breakfast was outstanding... Front desk personnel treated me like cattle. Herd me in and herd me out. Rude comments made by the young person named Jose were very unwelcome. Regardless Hyatt will never again get any of my hard earned money.
Hyatt place was in a great location close to the historic area of El Morro but located in the center of the "city like" area. Was VERY clean and I am a lucky hotel stayer. The service of the staff to accommodate was exceptional. Everyone was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. This hotel has a great pool area for kids with an awesome mini water park.
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.
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!
It was a wonderful experience. The staff was warm and friendly, and the room was immaculate.
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.
Poool open24 hour a thumbs up! Lost my eyeglasses , i called first they say they found one and later no trace of them.. .strange.
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!
Customer service House keeping. They took too long to clean our floor.
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.
Good location, everything was clean, great staff. Parking not included.
Excellent staff and service Welcome cookies Resort fees but this would go for all hotels in the area. Parking options
Just one block from beach Bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner, a little expensive for my taste but average for the area, hard to get parking!
The extremely helpful staff at the front desk the breakfast was bad
Recently my friend and I visited Puerto Rico and stayed in various locations around the island. The night we stayed in San Juan we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It was right off of the main streets and close to the water. A short drive to Old San Juan.
