Conrad San Juan Condado Plaza Review

The island's only luxury hotel with both Atlantic and lagoon views is just five minutes from Old San Juan. The eye-popping decor includes cherry-red rooms and enormous photographs of wild orchids. The resort offers plenty of activities, including a 24-hour casino, three swimming pools (one with a water slide), high-end boutiques, tennis courts and Condado Lagoon, where guests can kayak or paddleboard. It's also the site for Pikayo, one of Puerto Rico's most notable restaurants. Echoing hallways (and heavy doors that slam) can make for sleepless nights. Be sure to request a room in the west wing, where you cam see powerful waves dramatically crashing onto the rocks below.

    TOO EXPENSIVE

    HOTEL IS LOCATED IN A PRIME LOCATION, BUT THE SERVICE AND CLEANLINESS OF THE ROOMS MUST BE IMPROVED.

    two star service at four star prices

    No reason at all to stay here. Doormen watched me struggle to get my luggage through the doors; snarly front desk help. The "beach" is a spit of sand ending under a highway overpass, directly under the flight path. Rooms are beautiful, but not practical -- no knob, handle on the inside of the bathroom door, we had to pry open the sliding doors with our fingers, or leave the doors open while using the bathroom. Form over function in a BIG way.
