We spent one night after a cruise. The hotel is really pretty. The front desk and valet service was excellent. We arrived at 9:30 AM and our room was ready! We really lucked out. The pool area is very nice. We spent most of the day there. It is in a good location. So if you don't want to eat...

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,...

Our family spring break vacation in Puerto Rico at the San Juan Hilton Curio Hotel was great! The location is simply amazing, close to drug stores, restaurants, and the beach. The recently renovation of the hotel looked great! I will definitely be back in the future. The staff was good but do not expect the above and beyond expectation service...

My wife and I always come here for a long weekend from NYC. This is our first time back since the renovation! We had to bring our own bags into the lobby which we thought was strange since they jacked the prices up on the rooms. The rooms came out nice, but there was protesting going on which was really...

The hotel was redone very nicely. I stayed on the 6th floor in the hotel and it was nice. Luis and Miguel at the pool bar know how to keep a smile on your face. Protesters yelling, people complaining about the protesters and they joke and keep the mood light and drinks flowing. They were wonderful and really made my...

Excellent hotel with a friendly staff. Excellent service. The restaurant off the lobby was not the best, but overall a great experience. We did expect a higher quality mattress at a hotel of this caliber though.

No one to help with towels and chairs, slow service, expensive!! Stores still not open, no casino and lobby is a ghost town. I must say Frances at the...
