Flight was delayed heading into San Juan, so did not arrive at the hotel until ~2 am on a Saturday morning. Expected things to be dead in the lobby, however this place was jam packed!!
Lots of dancing/fun in the lobby both nights of my trip. There's also a dance club onsite that a lot of locals seems to go to. Very fun - worth a stop. They do have a dress code at night, so suggest packing some nice shoes/clothes.
Food/drinks onsite are pricey - there's a few restaurants down the road that are worth checking out. There's also a grocery store (Pueblos) a few blocks away where you can stock up on liquor.
Pool/beach are fun - seems to be lots of activity going on during the day.
Room was nice - not the newest hotel so it's expected that not everything will be perfect but it seems like they kept up well enough with maintenance. Stayed in room 825 and had a great view of the ocean.
Would definitely return and recommend to friends! This is the place to go if you want to party in San Juan.
