Special Trip for Mom - 83

Jump to last reply

I've been looking and looking for a special place to take my Mom. She's 83 and her mobility is very limited now. After considering the following criteria, I am highly considering Puerto Rico. In particular I am looking for insights into hotels that are not too sprawling, so that we can easily make it to breakfast and the pool.

Direct flight from FLL -- will San Juan have jet ways or Tarmac boarding? If it's the latter, she won't be able to handle stairs, so I'll have to contact the airlines.
Beautiful Pool more important than beach -- she loves the pool and can't handle the beach due to balance issues, so pool area is really where we'll spend our time.
Accessibility -- has to have rooms that aren't too far from the beach, trams would be nice if it's a bigger property. We also need room with two queen beds, not a king room.
Location -- we are not limited by needing to be within walking distance to shops or restaurants. We'll have to take cabs or rent a car, wherever we go.
Something special -- a view would be nice and a place known for good service. Our budget is up to $350/night. Caribe Hilton and Intercontinental are both of interest based on my research so far, but open to suggestions. Kids/families are probably OK, but something low key is best for her.

Our last trip together we went to the FL Keys. It was a great choice. We stayed at the Marriott Key Largo. We spent the morning at the pool, went out for lunch, she rested in the afternoon, and we went out for dinner. That was plenty for her!
