With a storied past showcasing performances by Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, the luxury, 1950s-built El San Juan is considered a local icon. Thanks to a $60 million renovation in 2016, the legend continues. A mix of families, couples, singles, and business travelers find themselves at the dazzling hotel.
The hotel sits right on Isla Verde Beach, between the famously wide, white-sand and Isla Verde Avenue, the neighborhood's main road. The boulevard is lined with luxury hotels, numerous restaurants, and takes guests to the popular Condado area and historic Old San Juan. Guests also appreciate being able to walk to the nearby Walgreens or CVS to stock up on snacks and necessities. Juan Munoz Marin International Airport is only a short distance away for travelers.
With a beautiful beachfront location, four pools, five restaurants, seven bars, a nightclub, and a state-of-the-art three-story fitness center, the hotel rivals any all-inclusive in the area. All restaurants on-site offer something for everyone, ranging from steak and seafood to Mediterranean and family-style. The lobby is a hub of entertainment with three bars, a café, Chico Cabaret, and the on-site nightclub Brava. Apart from dining and entertainment, the multiple pools are a major highlight of the hotel. The impressive 24-hour fitness center and spa offer a range of equipment and services for guests.
Accommodations available include Tower Rooms, Suites, Villas, and Specialty Suites. Guest rooms were all overhauled in the property's 2016 renovation. Beds are incredibly plush, and all rooms are equipped with big flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, minibars, and ample tech plugs. Closets in the rooms contain bathrobes, irons, ironing boards, and safes. More amenities and space are offered as rooms are upgraded.

Cons:The price of the alcohol could be less.
Cons:We didn't like the partying and the loud music
Cons: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.
Cons:No microwave for guest to use
