The stay was fantastic, with outstanding support from the front desk. Facilities are renewed and room was comfortable. The interior patio and garden was beautiful. Well located. definitely, we will return.

I must say that I have been to this Hotel at least 5 times in the last 10 years and it still intrigues me each time I stay there. It was an actual convent and was renovated by an American Businessman. It dates back to 1650 so the rooms are small in comparison with Modern Hotels but the atmosphere and access to Old San Juan restaurants and sites are excellent.

We stayed here following a 7 day cruise with Royal Caribbean. We did not enjoy the cruise and were VERY excited to spend time in San Juan. We couldn't wait to get off the boat so requested early check-in. Our room was ready at 9:30 which was fantastic. My whole crazy family planned very poorly and had 7 hours to kill before going to the aiport and the staff were very sweet about storing their luggage and didn't care they were hanging out in our room all day (although we did spend quite a bit at the bar and restaurant). The cocktails were delicious, the food was okay. What really shined was the character of the place, the friendliness of the staff, the amenities (great pool, wine and cheese, turn down service). I loved learning about the history of the hotel and location cannot be beat. Great jumping off point to explore Old San Juan.

We visited El Convento several times before even getting engaged and were always blown away by its special character and beauty. From the first time we called Ely Rivera to discuss having our wedding there, she made us confident that the hotel could work with our budget and wishes to create a magical day. El Convento delivered! The entire team, from the bellmen to the wedding coordinator, was kind and professional. Our guests had an incredible time and so did we. All of the rooms were comfortable and lovely. The food was absolutely top notch, the presentation was gourmet and the flavor delicious. Ely worked with us on the bar/liquor to accommodate our budget - we couldn't have been happier with the final result. We highly recommend doing your wedding at El Convento, they will make the process easy, will help along the way with recommendations for other vendors and will execute your vision. They truly are a great team. Ely, Jorge, Sandra, Karla, Orby, Edwin, Frank, Caroline, Javier and many more who made this happen thank you from the bottom of our hearts, it was the best day of our lives. We can't wait to come back and visit El Convento. Ayesha and Marcus

Really in a wonderful spot in Old San Juan. I went running on the water each morning (with lots of other folks). The room was nice, but not five star quality. They closed the restaurant eary one night due to flooding, but they gave me a free drink to make up for it. One notable highlight: the cleaning crew would leave on NPR classical station, which was nice to come home to each evening. Btw, got a good price on Hotel tonight app!
