My wife and I are frequent travelers in our early 30's . We look for location first, 4-4/12 star quality resorts, and value. This hotel fit our needs perfectly. We visited several of the other contenders (Hilton, Intercontinental, La Concha) and we're glad we made this choice. The location places you within walking distance to fun nightlife. It's right on the busline which provides service to Old San Juan (you cannot walk) and many cultural sites. We rented a car for just a few days, parking is expensive, and saw everything on our list. (If you rent from enterprise online you can look up a coupon code for a discount. Then tell them where you stay when you get there for an additional discount) The hotel quality is definitely 4+ star. The food is tasty, but overpriced when fine dining is a stones throw away. Go to a gas station and stock up on local beer for your fridge. Clean spacious, sexy rooms with fabulous views. I booked the lagoon view and asked the front desk for a free upgrade. We got a wonderful ocean view room. Casino was fun and looking at the dancers in the club was a good time. Finally value. If you compare some of the other top resorts I think you'll see this is the best choice. Its a clear win due to proximity to everything wonderful, onsite entertainment, and smart consierge service.
