As with any other tourist destination you will want to stay in the best hotel when you are in Puerto Rico. A good hotel is one that is centrally located, has good, clean rooms, some good places to eat around it, and has the best nightlife around. All this with a budget that will come in handy. Some of the best hotels in Puerto Rico are found in the city of San Juan. Most of these hotels are also located near the casinos. The advantage of hotels in this area is that the staff is almost always multilingual and can easily upgrade their rooms.
Some of the best hotels that can be recommended are the Coral Princess Hotel. This is a boutique hotel and it comes with only 25 rooms. It is quite the trendy place to stay with a modern twist in its decor and furnishings. Located in the Condado District of San Juan, this is a popular tourist area and also the upscale residential area of the city. You can easily walk around the place on foot and discover the various shops and places to eat around. Although families are welcome to stay here, one of its selling points is that it’s perfect for solo travelers or couples without kids. You get a complimentary breakfast with your rate. It is about 5 miles from the airport and a short drive from Old San Juan, the San Juan cruise ship docks, and the Puerto Rico Convention Center.
Another great hotel is the San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino. This is located right on Condado Beach and even has a four star rating from Expedia.com. Families and cruise ship tourists often stop here during or before a cruise departing from San Juan. Due to the close proximity of the beach, various water activities are available. Parasailing is also on the cards here. The hotel is only 5 miles from the airport and most passengers prefer to take the bus instead of a taxi. Since golf is the hobby of choice for many gentlemen, you should know that popular courses are only 20 miles away. This includes the Trump International Golf Club and the Dorado del Mar Golf Club. It is also located near the Conquistador Golf Club.
Another great place to try would be the Caribe Hilton. This is a massive complex and it comes on a private beach. Around it are tropical gardens. You’ll find this resort wedged between Old San Juan and Condado Beach. It is also very conveniently only 15 minutes from the airport. The complex is huge and has 646 rooms and suites. They also have 264 luxury villas. Each and every one of them has a view of the sea or the garden.
