My girlfriend and I (NYC residents) visited San Juan Nov 9-14 2012. We landed at the airport , easily got a CAB $21+TIP (FLAT RATE) to the Ritz Hotel. (10 mins). Was greated by the bell hop and checked in immediately. Got no champagne, but we were not long enough in lobby (which I like). Got a good rate $190/night .. room was very nice, view faced the front of hotel.(did not care, only used the room to sleep). Service was great. Got desert at night .. Loved it
Beach was great. We got 2 chairs and plenty of towels every day. Swam in ocean .. Fantastic.
Everything in hotel is expensive, so we walked to Walgreens and got beers and snacks for the day. Plenty of resturants , bars within walking distance (500 yrads) that are less expensive. (Metropol, Dennys, Chilli's, plus alot of other places).
Took the local bus one day to Old San Juan. Great time seeing the sites on the ride and getting to know the locals. $0.75 (cant beat that). (30 mins) Old San Juan was nice place to walk around , take pictures, have lunch and a few drinks.
Did not go to Barcardi factory .. Heard it was not worth the time.
San Juan Dance club was closed,(Thurs-Sun Only). We did hang out at bar and gambled in its casino.. lots of fun.
