I was here last week on business travel and I chose this hotel because it was in my company policy. I had Hilton gold status so I figured I would get a few perks there. Not so much, and the Hilton Honors tower is nothing to write home about. The best part about the room was the shower, which must have been updated. The rain shower is a plus but the rest of the room needs an update to catch up! The view was beautiful but the construction kept me from sitting on my balcony and relaxing.
The restaurants are good- had happy hour at the Oasis bar, drinks outside at the Atlantic bar (and lunch too) and dinner at the pan-asian restaurant. All were fantastic- the only downside is breakfast. My vouchers got me a continental breakfast or pasty/coffee at starbucks which I did use. The other restaurants had up charges and I didn't want to spend anything extra on breakfast.
Now to the best part- the pool and beach. Both did not disappoint! It looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The infinity pool is stunning, and the rest of the pool is great as well. You can swim up to the bar which is always a plus. The beach was wonderful, loved the floating docks and comfy lounge chairs. The bar service at the beach was a huge plus. You can't beat the bucket of beers after a long day at work.
You can cab to Old San Juan as others have mentioned, and there is a Morton's on site. There is nothing to walk to but the area is up and coming and should have more (safe) options soon. This hotel would be ideal for a long weekend.
