I really enjoyed the St Regis for a long weekend getaway from New York with my wife. We have stayed at luxury resorts all over the world and this was comparable to many of them but much, much easier and cheaper to get to. We stayed in a one bedroom, oceanfront suite that was enormous, and all rooms / amenities were brand new as the resort was built less than three years ago. It was great that each building was only two floors so that nothing was taller than the trees, and the buildings were well spaced so you always felt like you were in the jungle (rather than at a large resort). We thought we would spend most of our time at the pool, but the beach was very nice (and scenic). You can walk for nearly a mile in either direction and there was nothing else nearby.
We had only two minor complaints:
(1) Dinner was average, particularly at Fern (Jean-Georges)... although breakfast at Fern was awesome. You would definitely be better off eating at the more casual Molasses.
(2) We stayed for three full days, which was perfect... but there is not a lot to do if you stay much longer. St Regis is 30-40mins from San Juan so not a lot of dinner or going out options.
