We came to San Juan a few days early before our cruise was to start and booked at El Convento on a recomendation from a business associate. The first thing that happened at check in was an upgrade to a better room then we had booked. After a da,y we cancelled our reservations at a less expensive property and just relaxed here. The staff was charming and did everything they could to make our stay wonderful. Our room had a view of the harbor and we we had breakfast in the room with the verada doors open watching the ships pass by. The bed was very comfortable and the bath large and well appointed as was the entire room. Rooms are located around a center courtyard that serves as the resteraunt. There was a large wedding reception going on one night but with the extra sound proof door in the room we heard nothing.
The roof top pool, hot tub, sunning area was just the right size and we spent several afternoons just relaxing before dinner. Very well located in the old town and we walked to most major attractions in town. When we returned from our cruise and had 8 hours to kill before our flight, we were able to check our luggage with them while we did some more sight seeing.
Have to agree this is "\"Off the charts good"!
