I decided to treat myself for a night at El Convento during my recent visit to Puerto Rico. I had stayed there about 15 years ago for my cousin's wedding. All my memories of it are magical and were reconfirmed when I stayed there in January. I hold a very special place in my heart for El Convento.
I called ahead of time from the US to make the reservation and told them that it was such a special special to me. Having said that, I found out upon arrival that they had upgraded our room. Not only that, but while we were at dinner they had left chilled rose champagne and an array of gourmet chocolates. I couldn't believe how much they treated us like kings!! It was service at its best.
The room we stayed in was spacious and ultra comfortable. The fantastic, elegant decor made me feel nostalgic for a long-gone era. Outside of the rooms are wraparound patios with tables and chairs overlooking the hotel's beautiful, open air, ivy-draped restaurant (we ate there and it was fabulous). The amenities are just great!
The pale yellow facade of the building itself was a pleasure to walk home to after exploring old san juan. It's Old San Juan's most beautiful hotel.
When you stay here, you really feel like you're part of Old San Juan's history. A truly magical experience!! I'd go back time & time again!
