El Convento was as charming as Old San Juan itself. As soon as you enter this boutique hotel you're transported to another place and time. A 350 year old converted convent will do that. The rooms, pool, outdoor atrium, bar, restaurant....all had an old world style. Without exception, the staff were friendly and accommodating. Side note: if you like Mojito's ask Margaret to make you her own special version that includes fresh ginger and passion juice; it's amazing. Several of the staff members were helpful in directing us to some great spots for lunch and dinner. San Juan is a great place to explore (El Morro is awesome) and El Convento is a great hotel to start and finish each day.
