4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel was huge with shops, restaurants ( indoor and outdoor), multiple pools, lounges, water park, several game rooms, business center, spa, golf course and a private island beach reached by catamaran ferry from the hotel's marina. Very tropical decor with beautiful landscaping; even with temps in the 80's, the ocean breezes kept us comfortable. Our ocean view room with two... More

I spent four nights here while attending a conference. The resort is enormous.When I first arrived I was overwhelmed and needed help to find my room. For serious swimmers this is a perfect place with wonderful pools including a lap pool. However, on two of the three occasions I was swimming and then relaxing, horrible piped loud music was played... More

It was very amazing weekend that passes at the hotel. Since you spend it with my mother, my father, my husband, my uncle and his wife. Since we arrived we had an amazing service which treated us very friendly and with great enthusiasm. The employees were very helpful and were always willing to help us in whatever we would like...

Had a lovely week vacation at this top end resort. Rooms were very clean with a balcony and nice view. Great swimming pools and private beach. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Only draw backs were: 1. No daily newspapers available. Since it is a very expensive hotel I would think that would be a nice addition 2. It would be... More

Although beautiful at first glance, our air conditioner was broken and took two days to fix, requests for blankets or coffee went unfilled or wrongly done, and the service in the outdoor restaurant was poor-forgot our silverware several times, at lunch took an hour to serve (with a quarter filled restaurant). I would not recommend this if you are looking... More

We enjoyed our stay at this property. By far, the best aspect to this location is Palomino Island. We enjoyed 3 beautiful days perched under the palm trees by the blue sea. The water was pretty churned up after some rain, but we finally had decent visibility for snorkeling on the third day. This would be a great location to... More

This is a beautiful property and has a lot going for it, however you are pretty much held hostage by the resort and its prices. The restaurants are pricey and to take a taxi into town was per person, into San Juan was $200 whether 1 person or 4. We discovered that renting a car instead of there excursions was... More

We had a great time! Knowing that the property is in the process of getting Waldorf Astoria/Hilton upgrades, we can't wait to plan another vacation here. And, even without the updrades, our room was nice with an amazing view, the staff was friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves. One of the of the high points was dinner at Chops! Jorge... More

Hotel is beautiful, staff is wonderful and palomino is wonderful. However, would want greater variety and improved food experience. Need a well versed, adventurous chef to match the quality of the hotel. The setting is gorgeous.
