Resort Profile

A legendary luxury property built in the 1950s, the El San Juan Hotel has featured performances in its storied past by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole; with a refresh in 2016, it blends a contemporary style with Old World grandeur and has renewed its status as one of Puerto Rico’s premier beach resorts. Boasting a robust +5 TripValue, it’s also one of the island’s very best bargains. With first-class service, it caters very well to couples and singles, but also attracts a fair amount of families. The on-site restaurants are expensive, the guest room bathrooms can lack privacy, and the staff runs a bit of a tight ship when it comes to issuing beach towels; but the property offers one of the area’s best and largest beachfronts, top-notch nightly entertainment, four quality swimming pools, five outstanding restaurants, a state-of-the-art three-story fitness center with a great selection of classes (Pilates, vertical wall yoga, TRX, CrossFit, spin), and an excellent on-site nightclub in BRAVA. The beautiful, recently-renovated rooms come with floor-to-ceiling windows, mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, sensor-activated air conditioning, and a good amount of space; suites come with even more space plus better ocean views. Daytime activities are fairly limited, but include jet skiing, surfing, basketball, and tennis. Fishing, sailing, water skiing and other water sports are available in the vicinity, as are off-site shops and restaurants.

As Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of the United States, the CDC COVID-19 testing requirement for U.S. travelers re-entering the U.S. from international destinations does not apply.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
