Puerto Rico: Hotel El Convento

After a cruise on Sea Dream across the Atlantic from Spain, we arrived in Puerto Rico and headed for our hotel the Hotel El Convento in the heart of Old San Juan. To be honest, we were pleasantly surprised.  The hotel, originally a convent, was close to just about everything. There were some great 5 star outlet stores and just about everything was a short walk away.

I would rate this hotel 4 star with a 5 star experience all around.

The Daily Manager’s Reception featuring a variety of wine and hors d’ouevres served on La Veranda Terrace was not to be missed.  The hotel offered three diverse restaurants, serving cuisine ranging from Spanish tapas to traditional Puerto Rican fare.   Hotel El Convento – San Juan Puerto Rico Hotel
