Protesters front and back of resort. Construction all day at pool area. Zero Rest at Pool with Chipping Guns popping tiles and pavers all day. The staff was excellent at pool, front desk and beach. Sea weed was present in the beginning but all gone when we left. But what do you expect it's the ocean. Steak House very expensive...

At the hotel on business. The hotel is re-opened after a major renovation. Rooms are very nice! Outdoor amenities were awesome. Pools are super nice, bars are good, music in the lobby was nice. There is still construction going on at the hotel as of this writing but the hotel is managing it very well. They keep the guests happy,...

The hotel was recently renovated. The decor went from light and quirky to dark and sophisticated. The lobby is spacious and cooling to enter from the hot steamy street. The staff is wonderful and the property is beautifully landscaped. Restaurants are a bit pricey, but the food is consistently delicious. My only complaint is that the live music in the...

We went to dinner at El San Juan Hotel. (Cannot remember name of pool side restaurants but it was delish) The hotel has gone through 65 million dollar reservations and it shows. It was a soft opening so it wasn't crowed and still had construction going on around the grounds. Let me just say it is beautiful. The pool area...

Beautiful Hotel. Exceptional service. Eric and Laura at the front desk met every need with a smile. Our housekeeper Mireya was a gem. So friendly and I enjoyed seeing her in our area every day. I am a Diamond member and was treated as such. Upgraded to a new area which was quiet and had a lovely balcony to enjoy...

The hotel itself was beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful when they could be. Unfortunately, there was construction going on the week we were there and the noise from the construction woke us up very early each morning. Also, there was a strike going on against the hotel every day all day on the beach and in front of...

I stayed with my family at El San Juan Hotel for the Spring Break Holiday. It is the most beautiful hotel in the San Juan local area, having undergone extensive rennovations but still maintaining the gorgeous wood paneled lobby. What distinguishes this property is that it has the "old world" feel you appreciate visiting while this island; however the amenities...

Very Beautiful hotel!!! Worth the look and stay - some interruption with the labor union protests but staff went above and beyond to accommodate and make us feel at home. It is close to everything in San Juan.

My boyfriend stayed for four days to celebrate my birthday. A friend recommended this hotel during our first visit to San Juan, however it was closed due to renovations. When we found out that they had reopened in February we were excited to book our stay! I started reading reviews and wasn't expecting to have a great time, a lot...
