When we originally were looking for pre and post-cruise hotels in San Juan we discounted El Convento due to the cost. We were pleasantly surprised to find an excellent mid-week package for our Sunday and Monday post-cruise stay. So reasonable, in fact, that the price was equal to or better than some comparable, popular properties.
All of the positives of this property have been listed in previous reviews. The hotel is superb and met or exceeded our expectations in every way. We chose a queen room with limited view. We were assigned a room on the second floor - it was fantastic. Our shuttered doors overlooked a quaint little side street and we never heard a sound from the street, or interior courtyard or halls.
Things we loved: the rooftop pool and hot tub, nightly complimentary wine and cheese reception, the hospitality terrace with tea, coffee and bottled water, in-room refrigerator and safe, wide selection of cable channels on a flat screen TV (although we spent little time in our room), quality toiletries, nightly turn-down service (coming back to classical music playing softly on the Bose radio), comfy bed and quality linens, immaculate facilities in room and common areas, the lovely courtyard, tables and chairs on each level surrounding the courtyard, robes and slippers, location, wonderful staff, comfortable furnishings, ...... I could go on and on.
There is not a thing I would change about El Convento, it is truly top-notch and an excellent value.
