We decided to stay here for one night before catching a cruise from the Pan American pier the next day. The rooms are large, the beds are comfortable and the wifi works. Parts of the grounds are amazingly beautiful (the fourth floor infiinity pool at night is breathtaking and the lobby is gorgeous) and parts of the grounds are incredibly ugly (the front of the hotel is a deserted construction lot complete with trash). The hotel is close to the pier, but you cant walk (the road way has been intentionally designed to prevent pedestrians) and the cab fare to the pier is advertised as $15 but is actually $25 after surcharges, for less than a mile. Breakfast is not included in high room rates, the restaurant is shockingly expenisve and there is nowhere within walking distance to eat -- so think carefully about your plans. The hotel itself is lovely and everything in the rooms is very nice - but the location is NOT convenient, and overall you end up paying the same for cabs as you would if you stayed in Old San Juan, which has genuine atmosphere for the same price. Nice hotel, bad location. If they someday offer a reduced rate shuttle to get you to the pier, this will be worth it. Otherwise, save your money and stay in Old SJ where you can eat, drink and still only pay $20 for a cab to the pier.
