Recently I stayed at this hotel with some colleagues. The hotel boasts a number of restaurants and bars as well as great outdoor pool area. There is easy access to the beach which is well controlled to avoid non residents entering the resort. The rooms are bright and spacious. This would also be a great vacation location. Definitely worth a...

I have nothing negative to say about this resort. The staff was nice, the resort was beautiful and the food was amazing! The land was very elegant and chic .. I don't gamble but some of my friends went to the casino in our resort and enjoyed it. Our room was right off the pool area and only about 10...

The El San Juan is a classic hotel, over 50 years old it was built by an architect that traveled all over Europe picking perfect elements, like Italian red marble, and crystal chandeliers, with the intent of making the hotel a landmark visitors would never forget…over the years there have been many remodels, but the original marble, chandeliers and hand...

Good choice if your looking to have lots of fun i.e., dancing, casino, beach, two pools, fine dining, and be nearby the airport. On weekends the lobby is full of people enjoying the live bands and dancing. Not a place to be secluded nor quite. The rooms were spacious with comfortable pillows and bed. Buffet breakfast is $24 approximately and...

This was my first trip to Puerto Rico and my first impression of the hotel was great based on the look and feel of the lobby area. Everything was well kept and it had a very trendy feel to it. The lady at the front desk was friendly and accommodating to my friend's request to have our two rooms near...

Thank you for your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback and we’re very sorry for negative experience at our hotel.

We didn't stay here but enjoyed their live band and dancing. We also stayed on the beach outside the resort and their bottle service was excellent. Enjoyed the atmosphere and decor of this resort. Looking to stay next visit!

When we first checked into the El San Juan, we were given a room with a horrible view. Everything in the room looked dirty. After expressing our concerns, the staff was able to upgrade us to an ocean view room on the ninth floor. This room offered amazing views of Puerto Rico. While waiting for our new room to be...

The El San Juan Resort provided all the amenities for a wonderful vacation spot. The lobby area is exquisite and you get the feel of a very luxurious hotel. Many restaurants providing excellent food and service. I think the rooms need updating. When compared to the hotel lobby area, they are basic contemporary and seem outdated. The rooms were clean...

Hotel lobby looks nice... Kind of Las Vegas looking. Location is great! Food a little overpriced but not bad. Rooms need some TLC... Our room has a broken mirror, dirty Lamp, dirty ceiling... Among other little details like little stains on chairs, window glass not clean... P.S: don't go June/July if you want some quiet time... It's prom month!

We stayed here for three nights before a cruise. After extensive searching for a nice resort under $200/night, we selected El San Juan Resort.
