This hotel was by far one of the best I have been to. There were some hiccups like the room was not ready until 4pm when it should've been by 3pm as well as our first room had a leak from the AC in the room but they accommodated well and moved us to another room.
The rooms in the hotel are BEAUTIFULLLL... I love culture so this was the perfect hotel to be in PR. You can control the heat and AC in all rooms, our balcony had a beautiful view of the ocean and the streets of PR where natives sat at night playing the guitar, drawing and more. It was so romantic and beautiful!
The wine and cheese is not what it's all cracked up to be unless you just enjoy some free Wine then yes, go ahead a brag. Not that many variety of cheeses (about 5 with one cracker style) but there were several different wines offered, this last from 6-7pm so if you want to enjoy a beautiful view and some free tasty wine get there early, the cheese finished quickly and the 6:30pm you can possibly miss out on some wine.
There is also an open center in the hotel where beautiful trees sprout out and creates a shade over the hotel's restaurant. There is a cool and hot jacuzzi for 24hr use where my boyfriend and I stayed every night. The streets were pretty dead late night like 2-3am so we finished our nights by the jacuzzi a lot. We brought our own bottle of Champagne and with tall glasses and watched the stars in the warm jacuzzi.
The food near the hotel was Amazing! I would highly recommend this place to everyone...
You don't need a car because to find parking is difficult and you can pretty much walk to everywhere you need. **** Ladies no need for heels because there are lots of hills and it will not be comfortable for you to walk in heels all day**** Even Beyonce wore flats... Feel free to take the Trolley it's FREE! (There are two, one that stays in Old San Juan while the other goes in the city), The bus is the next cheap option to travel with paying less than $1 otherwise taxi will work for farther trips.
