We took a 5 day trip to the El San Juan since we wanted a short flight (from NYC) and we didn't want to go overboard on spending. The scene at the El San Juan is primarily young and likes to party. There is a big nightclub in the hotel and many ballrooms where multiple proms were hosted the weekend...

I had read others' reviews about the building being old and needing updating, but I have to say that we were very happy with our room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was good-sized, with a view of the ocean from the sofa. There were ample chairs on the beach and around the pool, so it was no...

Very nice lobby and hotel staff is excellent. Great location as is near restaurants, beach, and airport. Rooms and halls are very deteriorated, the value for the rooms is not worth the stay, very loud hotel and stopping in on business for a night could prove difficult to rest. Great hotel to visit in the lobby and go to the...

I would like to commend Angelo. He made both my cousins and I experience excellent! He was very welcoming, professional and helpful. Towards the end of our trip he expedited our valet vehicle.

The hotel is located in a great area. There's many places to walk to and eat. The hotel has a casino which is always a plus. The rooms and pool area are ok, nothing extraordinary. Overall I had a good time with the family.

Stayed in the main tower. Rooms are large. Bathrooms very small. Style is slightly dated. Overall it was pleasurable. No outside terrace. One out of three elevators was out of service increasing wait times. Property is gorgeous! Lobby hops on Thursday and Friday night with live entertainment at three bars.
