It used to be a nice hotel. Marble floor and pretty staircase - that’s all there. There are also: - heavy smell of marijuana everywhere - rude security saying that it’s fine - meanwhile front desk saying that it’s a non smoking hotel but what can they do - dirty common areas - extremely slow service in restaurant - like 2-3 hours wait for breakfast. We were waiting for a boiled egg, for few hours ! I wish it was not true. - drunk, high, heavily tattooed crowd - overcrowded pool with described above crowd. We would never be back!!! And we used to come every couple of years. And as a nice addition - no doormen, no porters, one extremely rude front desk person and of course no maid services

I got a great deal using a 3rd party website. I absolutely loved the hotel and the grounds. If I had no desire to conveniently swim in the ocean, I would stay here every time I go to San Juan. Here are a few pro's and con's: Pro's: Room was great. Large, clean and comfortable. Great in-room amenities. Quiet. Loved the restaurants. Loved having a quiet pool and hot-tub. Lots of interesting places to linger on the property. Free coffee in the lobby. Con's Smoking. The grounds are signed as no smoking but every single day there were smokers around me. Staff didn't do anything about it. Hopefully with COVID they are now more attentive to that. Beach - the beach was great but swimming was difficult, even for someone like me who generally is ok with large waves. I think next time I would Uber to Carolina, or head up to the small beach at the Hilton.

I always stay at a different hotel in San Juan but chose the CV because of its reputation. Traveling during a pandemic was challenging enough so I didn't want to risk quality. This hotel is certainly stunning. The room I stayed in is in the top five of the most beautiful I've stayed in. However, the upkeep of the property is not up to par. The service I received, while not bad, didn't align with my expectations, which were based on the quality and price. The staff was less than enthusiastic and most of my interactions with the staff were subpar. Housekeeping was slacking, sand on the bathroom floor stayed there for three days, even though the room was 'cleaned'. Not sure why there was no turn-down service or valet parking, maybe due to the pandemic or other reasons but it should be a given in a hotel of this stature. The few times I entered through the front door (not through the parking), the person at the door didn't greet me or others. I am writing this review conscious that covid made things much different in the travel industry. Economic issues that existed on the island, prior to the pandemic likely didn't help the situation either. I hope and plan to return to this hotel and see it to its full potential. Special mention goes to Mayra who checked me in. There's always a disconnect when I book through Expedia and specifically PAY for a room with a king sized bed then the hotel claims their info is different. It surely doesn't help a vacation start off on the right foot. But she was very professional and helpful in fixing the issue. Jose in the kiosk with the towels by the beach was beyond friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure seeing and chatting with him. and lastly Henry (I hope that's his name) who was polishing the floor near the lobby was very friendly also and it stood out because not everyone was.

Excellent hotel; excellent location and rooms ample and very nice. I will stay here from now on, when I go back to PR. Most of the restaurants and bars were closed because of COVID, but they looked very nice.
