We've been coming to this hotel for years, and while historically very good, the overall signs of age were apparent. However, the hotel was recently sold to a new owner and they have breathed new life into the property - finally. Although construction was still underway when we traveled, the rooms were absolutely gourgeous, well appointed and filled with conveniences...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Many were concerned about the protest, but today (4/30), it has officially ended. This hotel is beautiful. The staff couldn't be more friendly. From check-in, to servers, to waiters, this hotel represents the best of Puerto Rican hospitality. There is still a little bit of construction as noted, but we didn't even realize it until we walked right by it....

It was my first time to El San Juan Resort but it certainly will not be my last! I've been to many resorts all over the world and ESJ stacks up with some of the best. I understand that they recently underwent a massive renovation and from what I could tell they were able to preserve the original iconic character...

We checked in a couple of hours ago for a three day stay. We were hustled into a crowded hallway full of high school seniors and little kids with Balloons. The 'lobby' was closed due to a 'private party'. So unsophisticated and tacky.

last week i went with my family and we spend a very relaxing and enjoyable time together. The service was fast and excellent, the food was very good and the Room service also did a very nice job. I hope we can return soon.

This little coffee gem was honestly the best part of my stay. Every morning I was taken care of by their wonderful staff. Hillary was an amazing host, who greeted us with a genuine smile every morning and made sure my coffee was made to perfection. Miguel was very attentive along with the rest of the staff. The coffee was...

The El San Juan could not be more spectacular. Since the renovation this property has been elevated to best in PR. A wonderful mixture of a past era with modern touches. Eric at the front desk welcomed us, offered a welcome drink, and had our room of choice ready to go. Hillary and Nicolette at the coffee bar made the...

We stayed at the El San Juan for Mother’s Day, from Sunday to Monday. It was our second day in Puerto Rico when we stumbled upon the sprawling resort; we were originally scheduled to stay 4 nights at another nearby boutique hotel in the Isla Verde area. On a whim, we decided to walk in and check the place out...

After been stayed in this hotel a year ago, I'm impressed of how well it looks after a lot of renovations. The service and attentions of all the employees was superb, specially with the personal attention of the owners of Trattoria Napoles. I can't wait to stay in it again.

Great upgrade to an already cool place. We’ve made this trip before and have enjoyed the hotel in the past, but heard about the recent renovations and decided to do the trip again. We were not disappointed. Upgrades all around. The hotel vibe has always been a cool, upscale atmosphere, but the recent additions have modernized the place to a...
