After I saw that El Convento was the top rated hotel on tripadvisor in Old San Juan, I knew I had to book it, and was not disappointed!
It's a very beautiful property, the largest building in old town by a wide margin. The garden, the rooftop plunge pool and hot tub, and outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the wine and cheese hour each night, the water, coffee and fruits that were available all the time. This is just a great example of a small luxury hotel done right. We had stayed 5 nights in the St. Regis Bahia Beach prior to coming to El Convento, and I loved the contrast. The feeling of El Convento is more like you're staying at a beautiful home of a friend, who just happens to take care of you very well. It's just really peaceful and comfortable. The rooms are a decent size, everything is well updated, and the location can't be beat.
I can't imagine there's anywhere better to stay if you're looking to experience Old San Juan
