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.

beautiful place

The location of this hotel was perfect for me, if you like to gamble this hotel is not for you unless you don't mind traveling to another place, as for me I don't. The beach and pool area was clean and you never had to worry about finding chairs they have an abundance of them. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and we were close to Old San Juan. Loved this place and plan to come back next year.

Great Hotel! Great Location!

We loved our week stay in Puerto Rico & this hotel made it even better. Walking distance or a short cab ride to both Condado & Old San Juan. Great pool area & very friendly staff. This hotel even has a great gym! A lot bigger & has more equipment that your usual hotel gym. You can even do cardio with a view of the ocean! Love it!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Renting a car in Puerto Rico is a lot more convenient & cheaper than taking a cab everywhere. Cabs can be a little expensive for short rides. The island is very easy to navigate & people are pretty nice everywhere you go.

Amazing time

This was our second trip to Puerto Rico & the caribe hilton. We had a balcony room on the 10th flr. With a view of the beach and lagoon. We were there november 16-23 2014. The pool bar was closed due to it being re tiled and the back entrance was completely torn apart and under construction. You could hear the work going on while laying on the beach. Due to that there was no hotel bar open. Service on the beach was very bad because there was only one server for both beaches. We were told it was because it was the hotels off season. But when were there the same week in november in 2011 we had a totally better experience. This does not take away from the perfect location of this hotel close to old San juan and condado. The beach and water here are spectacular! The hotel grounds are breath taking! The rooms are very clean and modern. We will return to this hotel in the future

not much fun

we arrived late around 430 and were told our room wasnt available. they took my number and no one ever called to say it when it was available to us. We finally got in the room at 730. They offered no comps for the wait, nor the normal comps which apparently they offer all the guests. Then on our 2nd day there we got back from being out all day to find the room hadnt been cleaned. since we had no clean towels we had to wait for a maid to come and service the room. I will not stay there again

My favorite hotel to go to in San Juan

When I made my reservations, it did not say the hotel was doing construction/upgrading. I always enjoy coming to this hotel. Clean beach, beautiful landscaping around the hotel, love the pools.

fantastic to visit at Nov!! Get away from chilly nyc !!

The location is good, not far from airport, just takes about 15 min by taxi. Cost about 22 usd. The room is clean and comfortable, The view is amazing, because is very close to the sea that you can have sea view anytime at dinning, swimming, jogging or just lying at sand beach chair. The most impressive part is the mini rain forest garden inside the hotel, that allows us to intimate animals, like tiny little ducks! they are just sooooo cute!
