    Do not stay here!

    This hotel has no consideration for creating a positive experience for vacationers. They make EVERYTHING a hassle. They treat guests like they are in jail. We have stayed at other resorts and this is by far the WORST! If you want to have a great vacation experience DO NOT PICK THIS RESORT!

    Surprised by the added deposit since did not see that when booking. But didn’t damper our stay. Beautiful resort. Beach front. Good food. Relaxing atmosphere. Clean rooms. Clean beach access. Lovely pool. Nice entertainment. Close to everything. Will definitely return if ever back in Puerto Rico.

    Caribe Hilton is STILL as Lovely as ever 10/10

    I just stayed at the Caribe Hilton for the 5th time and had a WONDERFUL stay. Over the years this has been my families go to resort while visiting San Juan. Before I arrived on this particular trip I was concerned because of some of the reviews that I read on this page. After arriving and staying for 5 days I realized that the Caribe Hilton is STILL as lovely as ever and many of the complaints on this page are personal gripes that do not reflect the beauty of the Caribe H....and to be fair the hotel could use some minor touch ups BUT Let's start by the positives, location, location, location....This hotel is in the perfect location from Old San Juan to Condado. Second amenities. You are NOT going to find a better pool/private beach space in San Juan unless you visit the Ritz in Dorado. The outdoor pool area is JUST breathtaking. You are literally surrounded by the Caribbean ocean. Third the service. Service was fantastic from check in to check out. Fourth the lobby. the open air gorgeous lobby with live music at the bar is spectacular. Fifth the rooms are very clean and well appointed. A/C in the rooms is very cold. The food is DELICIOUS. You have a Morton's and a Starbucks and an Ice Cream parlor in the lobby. What more can one ask for :) Now let's address some of the concerns noted on previous reviews. On this trip because of the negative reviews I paid attention to details. Yes there are areas by the pool that need to be refreshed. For example the paint on the columns of the swim up bar needs a touch up. Yes there are small areas in the hallways that need touch up paint. Yes the elevator in the beach wing is down for repairs but the hotel allows you to use 2 freight elevators so I never waited for a long time. So my honest review. The Caribe Hilton is not perfect but Still Fabulous. If you're going to ignore the crashing blue ocean waves surrounding you as you lay out by the gorgeous pool area while sipping a delicious Piña colada because of a couple of needed touch ups. Then I suggest you stay home, save your money and take a staycation :). Now on a practical level. The Beach wing in my opinion is the Best wing. The wave wing is more economical and not as nice. Soooo I would suggest booking the Beach wing. Come to the Caribe Hilton drink a Piña Colada and enjoy your stay :))))

    Dynamic and beautiful hotel on beach that is family friendly with its own garden, pools, restaurants, salon, shops, etc.

    Beautiful and spacious hotel in San Juan close to old San Juan. It’s located on the beach, but also Caribe has its own pools that are family friendly with a small children section as well. You can grab coffee, fraps, ice cream on site in addition to their onsite restaurants. There is also breakfast for a few (at the time we visited). Little shops for swim gear too.

    On the beach stay....

    Very nice location. Private beach is nice for swimming and snorkeling. Pool area cery nice and family friendly. Easy taxi/uber trip to old san juan. Staff fantastic. Drinks and food a bit expensive but that is expected. Our room a bit dated and well used. Overall a good stay.
