Outstanding Staff including: Eric - front desk; Anthony and Carmen at the Cana Bar; Elizabeth at Cana breakfast; Maria who works poolside; Javier in security; and Eli at the Bell Hop. I love that Hilton recognizes old hotels like this and values their historical significance enough to add them to their brand.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 February 2017 via mobile

At the hotel on business. The hotel is re-opened after a major renovation. Rooms are very nice! Outdoor amenities were awesome. Pools are super nice, bars are good, music in the lobby was nice. There is still construction going on at the hotel as of this writing but the hotel is managing it very well. They keep the guests happy,...

Picketing and construction going on. Lousy service. Not worth the money. They need to train their staff on customer service. The restaurant la Marea needs a new chef. The food is atrocious. I have had better meals in diners in New Jersey.

We have stayed at El San Juan several times and as recent as January 2017. Great location on the beach and walking distance to many nice restaurants (if you don't want to eat there). We typically have stayed with ocean facing view on the upper floors. The rooms are spacious with large TV, balcony and Wi-Fi. Hotel lobby has a...

This hotel is AMAZING! The pools are beautiful and the ocean view is breathtaking. The staff were more than accommodating and the rooms were very modern and nice. It's an easy 10 minute cab drive from the airport too. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

I stayed at this hotel for one night in April 2017. The hotel lobby and grounds are beautiful and we really liked the room and pools, however we could not enjoy any of it dues to the protestors striking on the beach and at the main entrance. The strikers would harass and yell at the hotel and it made it...

This small boutique cafe is in the main lobby of the hotel. The coffee rivals the big american chains - in fact its better. The pastries and breakfast items are a wonderful change from standard breakfast buffet's. everything I ordered over my past 4 visits was fresh and very appealing. Many light side items to choose from as well. The...

So much potential for this hotel but due to the lack of transparency from this establishment and the lack of consideration for me, a guest I must give a thumbs down. Protestors and construction on the premiss made for a sad experience. An experience filled with regret for booking at this hotel and wishing I could get my money back....
