Area description
There is no place quite like a tropical volcanic island, and no island in the Caribbean quite like Puerto Rico. The geography of the island is very unusual, as it encompasses distinctly different kinds of topography and microclimates in a relatively small area. A rugged mountain range runs across the center from east to west, which often prevents rain clouds from passing to the south. The north side of the island is covered by dense vegetation, limestone formations, and rushing streams, while, the south side is sun-toasted terrain, home to tropical dry forests and many species of exotic birds. Puerto Rico is only about 100 miles long and 35 miles wide, so its most distant points are only a three-hour drive apart. It also means that just about every tropical landscape in existence is a short trip from wherever you happen to be.

Gorgeous location! Beautiful beach cove!

We loved our stay at caribe Hilton. Located between Condado and Old San Juan a short walk/ bus ride to either. We mostly stayed on the clean private tropical beach cove, enjoying umbrella lounges the bars and snorkeling. The rooms were fine with some wear and tear, but clean comfy beds. We did not spend too much time there. We did not eat at any of the 6 restraunts on site, they were a little out of our budget. But there was a local diner, convienent store and a sandwhich shop across the street that got our business. We loved our time here and would absolutely return. BEWARE: extra hotel tax and $15/day towel charge added to your bill (above the price charged online). Our 4 nights cost $68 more than we anticipated. I had not experienced this in any other booking.

Great Stay!

We had a great stay at the Caribe Hilton. Its beach is in a protected cove on the Atlantic. The breakfast buffet was good. The hotel is near the end of Ashford Avenue, public bus transportation to Old San Juan, and we found a variety of good restaurants, entertainment and shopping. The rates we found online were exceptional. We will be back. September is a great time to visit.

Club Nautica Billfish Tournament

The pool areas were the only downside. The lounging areas to lay in the sun were in terrible condition & need to be replaced ASAP. With such a beautiful view this should not be acceptable for a Hilton property.

Business Trip

In our room, the fixtures (Toilet and Shower) had to be fixed two (02) days in a row. The Coffee Maker was very dirty. The grounds were loaded with insects, and my legs, arms, and face had insect bites. I had to take a cab to the Walgreens to get Medication. The lobby is the worse, I have ever seen. No fans, open and very hot. Waiting to check in and out was totally unbearable, due to the Lobby conditions. I would never stay there again. Lack of restaurants. Should have had a Buffet or Dining Room instead of one (01) Fast Food (Quizos)

One night of pure luxury

Great hotel that is more like a resort. Stayed here after a cruise and it had everything I wanted and more. Very relaxing before getting on a flight home. There were some additional fees but nothing too bad. Was able to enjoy the amenities before getting a taxi to the airport. Various restaurants onsite. Again it's like a resort but it's not within walking distance to Old San Juan. However, taxis are available 24/7 and there is an Enterprise on site for car rentals.

Birthday Getaway

I had a nice experience at this hotel. My room was average, I was expecting something much nicer, especially considering the fact that I paid extra for an ocean view. But all in all, it was okay and I would visit again. I know to upgrade next time I go. The amenities At this hotel are awesome! I enjoyed my birthday at the Caribe Hilton!

Long weekend getaway

Beautiful ocean view. Clean room. Close to bus stop to go to Old San Juan and forts for 50 cents. Free trolley tours. Downside hotel restaurants extremely expensive. I took car service which was expensive 81.00 for a 10 min drive. Suggest shuttle or taxi. Restaurants in the city are more reasonable. Hotel was near a few casinos.
