Wonderful spot for a pre-cruise stay in San Juan. Property is ideally located, modern, very clean yet retains the charm of Old San Juan. The on-site Italian restaurant was very, very good. The staff offered excellent dining and sight-seeing suggestions.

No additional fees were added. They just took your card information for incidentals such as if you break something in the room,etc. And if everything is okay with the room you get the money back. I believe that fee was $125... More
