    My 50th Birthday Trip

    The best experience I’ve ever had! First time ever in Puerto Rico, and you guys had knocked it out of the park!! The special birthday cake and how room attendant Shailees Cruz Melendez made the towel tower with the 50 @ top !! Outstanding!! Top notch

    Wonderful stay, Wonderful staff !!

    Arrived at the Royal sonesta on 2/11/24 for a four night stay. We were here in February of 2019 during the same dates and had a nice room on the highest floor with a beautiful ocean front view. During this time the hotel was known as the Intercontinental. Many rooms were being refurbished and the Royal sonesta did wonderful job of finishing the refurbishing and updating all of the property. The food offerings are ok. The breakfast buffet is well done, the upscale restaraunt is actually a Ruth's cris and we dined there on valentines day for dinner and were not disappointed. While in town we visited old San juan and enjoyed the shopping and sight seeing. The people working at the Royal sonesta are great, but a special shout out to Nestor! The best concierge we have ever met. If you stay here, look him up. Tell him hello from Joy and Brad!!

    Great Isla Verde resort

    Lovely room and view. Staff at the facilities were always friendly and accommodating. I’d say the only inconsistency would be how some bartenders were super professional and some needed some basic training on how to make drinks. The poolside food was excellent.

    Great stay

    We had a 3 night stay here after a Caribbean cruise. Very nice hotel with lovely pool and grounds and right on the beach. We had an 8th floor room with a sea view. Very spacious room , lovely bathroom. No complaints at all. We had a couple of breakfasts here sat outside. Very good buffet selections. We also had a nice meal in the beach side restaurant. When we left the hotel I realised I had left some clothes in the drawers in the room. I contacted the hotel when I got home. The clothes had been found and Samuel Perez , security supervisor arranged for them to be shipped to an address in US. This was greatly appreciated. I would be happy to stay at this hotel again and would recommend it.

    All the stars, exceeded expectations !

    Third visit to PR and by far the best ! We will return to Royal Sonesta for our future palm tree and beach breaks ! Locals advised this was a great beach (it is!) This hotel was very resort feeling (better then all in one 5 star resorts elsewhere) with super friendly happy staff appropriately available, great food options, convenient location, quality rooms, yummy food. KUDOS and thanks Royal Sonesta : )
