    Perfeito !

    Perfect accommodation! Every detail thought out to better meet guests' expectations, staff education, wonderful swimming pools, shows at Cabaret do Chico, view from the room, the decades-old tree being preserved and beautiful... Everything was beautiful and perfect, but what caught my attention the most and will certainly never forget is the smell of the lobby, simply unforgettable. Unique experience .

    Not worth the money at all.

    The way this hotel is run - starting with management presents major problems. Between disorganization and lack of communication between management and staff, rooms smelling like marijuana, door locks breaking, leaks in the hotel, and overall age showing all over the hotel- this fairmont does NOT hold up to the standards of what I would expect. Especially for the exorbitant amount of money that we spent on this hotel.

    My last visit to Fairmont hotel in San Juan

    We were all disappointed! Multiple issues required significant management training and interventions: 1. Your employees were not accommodating, both at the front desk and in the restaurant, where we had breakfast almost every day. 2-Shower door was not closing, and water was gushing out of the shower! 3-Food at the restaurant had no variety, something every day!

    Old, stinky and leaky

    Hotel is old. Rooms literally stink - a fine mixture of sewage and mold. My shower leaked excessively. The upside was my in room pool after showering. The staff does not listen - too many errors to count from prearrival to arrival to stay to departure. Be prepared to wait at least an hour every day to enjoy a subpar breakfast. Wouldn’t stay here again for free.

    Time of Year Makes a Difference!

    The staff, cleanliness, and the overall resort type accommodations were great. The less than stellar rating is because the hotel was full of noise and late-night noise. Sleeping was at-times, extremely difficult and frustrating. Yelling in the halls, knocking on doors (and dashing), and late-night screams in the next room (drunken variety). The screaming in the adjoining room was intermittent enough that it would wake you in the middle of the night (along with the door knocking) but then it's gone. One night, our neighbors had a late party and we called to the front desk. I'm happy to say the hotel staff did not merely "call", they went to the party room and requested them to calm down (which they did). Seemed like teenage and college students for the most part, so consider this in your plans if you are anywhere in the spring break season. *Also, some rooms are right next to the elevator bank. I mean RIGHT NEXT to the elevator bank. Regardless of time of year, I would make sure you don't draw one of these rooms unless you sleep like a rock.
