San Juan

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 320 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good overall hotel experience Stayed three nights at Intercontinental San Juan from Sep 1-4. Great hotel with good service. Had an upgrade to ocean view rooms as a benefit for my Platinum Elite status, although I think it is one of the lower end of the Oceanview rooms at floor 8. Was also given a voucher to buy one get one free wine at a restaurant which i did not use, and a $25 match play coupon at its casino, which I won net $5 (you need to use cash to use the match play coupon). Nothing to complain about the room which is standard for Intercontinental hotel. Although we were a family with one kid, they only gave me a bottle of shampoo and conditioner each, and only two towels, so I have to call the front desk to get more, which was troublesome. Pool area was beautiful with several pools of different depths, and a jacuzzi, all open 24 hours, which was great for us. Beach area is just outside the hotel's pool area, and is really beautiful. Outside were several fast food restaurants and a 24hr supermarket makes it easy for me to stock up on water (The evain water in the hotel room cost $8.# Hotel added resort fee and taxes, which added around 32% on top of the room fee) , so be prepared for it. This was higher than the quote I was given when I booked the hotel at their website. There is a car rental in the hotel, but quite expensive at around $35 per day. I used and booked at enterprise car rental for only $14 per day, which is at the El San Juan, a 5 min walk from the hotel. Did not have any meals in the hotel so no comments there. Hotel is only 10 min from the airport so very convenient by tax #paid $15 including tips). Bus T5 was very slow and erratic, and took an hour to get to Old San Juan. Wasn't affect much by the renovation as we went out most of the time during the day, but they are still doing some renovations when we were there. 10 September 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by James We found the valet parking staff to be extremely helpful, especially James who always made sure we knew where we were going, gave us a map umbrella towels etc....he and the other valet parking staff made our stay very very nice. 09 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay The great location right on the beach was only outdone by the accomadating staff. Every went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied. 07 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Time I went to the Intercontinental and stayed for a quick weekend vacation with friends. Everyone had a great time and before we left, we were already talking about coming back to the property. 06 September 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Im not coming back. They promise me things and they did not do them. Is a bad experience when the first night you have to leave the room you pay for and sleep in a room you dont want to. 06 September 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Attending conference I just returned from a meeting at the Intercontinental Hotel in Isla Verde Puerto Rico. From the moment I arrived the staff was all smiles, warm and helpful. I arrived a bit early in the morning and because the hotel was full the prior night my room was not available. No big deal, I read the fine notes and know that the check in is at 4 PM. The hotel is going through some remodeling but you hardly notice it since they are working during the day while I was out on meetings or at the beach. The cutest little hard hat filled with goodies was waiting for me at the room with a note stating sorry for the inconvenience....Very nice touch. The hotel is on the beach in an enviable location. Made some money at the Casino so this guy is happy. The sushi Restaurant is great and if you are in the mood for some beach side eating the Mediterranean restaurant by the beach is the place to eat. Rooms are nice looking, balconies are great but if you can splurge a little more, try the Club Floor rooms. The morning breakfast and afternoon drinks and snacks are great and the staff can't do enough for you. Love this place, will recommend it to everyone alone, on business or traveling with families. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful stay and to the concierge for tll the "Local" knowledge! 05 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service staff was helpful and able to guide us well. excellent receptions staff, valet parking staff and information desk staff. 05 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A wonderful place to stay My first time to San Juan, partly for business and partly for pleasure. Couldn't have chosen a more perfect location. Staff was friendly and accommodating, the pool was sparkling clean each day. Food in San Juan is generally more expensive than I am used to, but the 24 hour market across from the hotel was helpful for snacks and extra brews after bar hours. Great location to the local bus stop, where we took the bus to old San Juan for less than a $1 each way. I felt safe at the property, and beach front access was wonderful. Will definitely be back! 03 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birthday and Anniversary in August 2013 We had a great time and the service and amenities at the Intercontinental were a HUGE reason for that. Yes there was some construction underway but it doesn't impact the professional, helpful and courtesy staff from servicing your every need and want. Old San Juan is a short drive away by taxi and was very nice, the Bacardi tour is a must if you like good drinks and the history of rum. It was worth the trip and I will be back again in the near future. 30 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Platinum Ambassador No benefits were afforded, not even a bottle of water. 29 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff and good location This hotel is currently undergoing refurbishments, so it will be even better in the future. The room renovations are already complete and the rooms are very comfortable, although I did not receive my Ambassador upgrade. There are several good food and drink options available, even off-season. The staff in each are friendly and try very hard to make your stay comfortable. The pool area is well kept, and there are always towels and loungers available. The pool is open 24-hrs, so expect to hear midnight swimmers! 26 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable, Elegant Place to stay The beds are incredibly comfortable, especially the pillows - king size, even the queen beds. I was right across from the elevators and my room was sound-proofed enough that I never heard them. Great toiletries(lemon verbena) in the bathroom, loved the fluffy bath rug. Fridge did freeze my items, though. Great views of the pool and ocean. Loved the gift shop with unique items, very friendly banquet, doormen and front desk, business center and housekeeping staff. Close to airport, great protected beach. Casino and 2 restaurants plus poolside bar a plus. 26 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Service I had the chance to visit this hotel for a conference. This is a beautiful hotel that is undergoing a few renovations. They were upfront about renovation efforts and it never interrupted anything I had planned. The food here is also of a very high quality and I would not classify it as overly expensive even though it is a top class resort. Definitely good value for money. I highly recommend this hotel! 26 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Royalty Treatment Our stay was wonderful, it was great to arrive in the front driveway and the vallet parking attendants great you and open the vehicle door for you and the front door to the main lobby is opened for you. The rooms are kept spotless clean and the bed linens are clean and crisp.Its worth paying the extra for the ocean view room, the view is spectacular. The restaurants in the hotel are fantastic excellent food and quality of service is outstanding!!!! I give this hotel a Five Star Rating in my book! The Conti Family... 26 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trip to Puerto Rico This hotel provides a great central location if you are visiting various locations on the island. One drawback was that their is not a lot of good local food around the hotel and the hotel food is expensive. But the hotel is beautiful and our room included the breakfast buffet which was our best meal of the day. 23 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Confortable bed and great service The pool was fascinating, the drinks superb, try the Island Bomb in 32 ounces in the pool bar. 22 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Services 1. At buffet breakfast Neysha (hostess) and waiters (Ida, Lourdes, and William greet and welcome you cordially. The rest are like robots, e.g. "You want coffee?" 2. Why is the policy at the breakfst buffet not to have any spoons with the coffee cups and saucers? Seems strange that you have to ask for a spoon every time.! 3. Ordered a hot dog with fries ($11.00). It took 25 minutes and it was cold!! 4. The hall rug outside our room was wrinkled up and my wife almost fell when she tripped. 5. The pool supervisor Carmen was wonderful!! When she was off, we would wait up to four hours and still no one would come by and see if we wanted a drink. The employees would rather hang around the bar area and chat, than to see if guests need something. I spoke with other supervisor, Ms. Ramos (whom it took five minutes to find inside the building at the pool) and told her it would be a good idea for her to circulate and see what is going on. (Bartender Felix was excellent.). The hotel could have sold at least another 16 drinks while we were there for the week. 6. Trattoria Italiana is no where near the food quality, or quantity, of Alfredo's. Definitely a 3 star at best. 7. Security(Pete) was excellent. My wife left her rosary in her bed and the hotel promptly located and mailed it. Thank you. All of the above was given to Edgard, one of the managers at the front desk., before leaving. PS: When you ask for my opinion, don't tell me (above)whose name to include or exclude. I don't need writing guidelines!! 22 August 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Needs New Management Our vacation at the Intercontinental San Juan started by having to wait 4 hours for our room to be assigned to us. (Please note the hotel was not full and there were plenty of rooms available) We sat next to a family from Maryland that had been up all night traveling to Puerto Rico and had been waiting for 3 hours. Front desk staff desperately needs customer service training. It was only after asking the fourth time for our room and threatening to go to the hotel next door that we finally were given a room. We never got an apology, and when our room was finally given to us the gentleman at the desk did not welcome us and acted as if he was doing us a favor. The service in the hotel is awful. For example, you come to the swim up bar to order a drink and sit there for 20 minutes before someone will take your drink order. Lots of people swim up, wait a few minutes and swim away. Other people told us not to bother with the staff and go across the street for our drinks. No drink service available in the pool area unless you go to the bar. In the morning you stand waiting for a table in the restaurant, you are the only one in line and there are plenty of empty tables, but you are still left waiting. This hotel has serious problems with customer service and it needs to start with upper management. The internet is full of complaints about the check in process, and other service issues at this hotel, I should of read them before making my reservation. Lots of construction at the hotel, but unfortunately making the property more attractive will not make up for the poor management and very poorly trained staff. 22 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this hotel Gorgeous views and prime location. Very comfortable room that overlooked the water. Nice breakfast. Great pool. Very enjoyable trip. Only wish the staff would be more accommodating with late checkout when it says on the website that it's avaliable. We did find a cigg bud on the floor of the room which was gross. 21 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Fabulous Stay Location, location, location! Having never been to San Juan, we couldn't have imagined a better stay. As a family of three, there was something for everyone; ocean, pool, gym, spa. The beach/waves were phenomenal, easy to access and complete with lounge chairs every day! The pools, hot tub and outdoor cafe/bar were convenient, fairly priced and perfect for adults and kids alike. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff was super friendly and made us feel like regulars! It will be hard for us to return to Puerto Rico and NOT stay at the Intercontinental again;-) 20 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Simply Amazing!!! We recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary at this hotel. What an amazing vacation we had! We were welcomed from the moment we stepped out of the cab and the smiles and helpfulness continued throughout our stay. The beach is beyond beautiful and is very well maintained. We could have spent our whole vacation just lounging in the comfy beach chairs! The pool is huge with many different sections where you can choose to be in the thick of it or more off to yourselves. The splash bar had lots of action and the hot tub was the perfect size and temp. Our room was very nice with a wonderful ocean view where you could hear the waves right outside the window. Breakfast was delicious with a ton of different buffet choices. All of the wait staff was so friendly and accommodating. We could not have asked for a more relaxing stay! We will definitely be returning, hopefully soon! 20 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ask about renovations before booking One of the top reasons for booking this hotel was the numerous photo opportunities. Unfortunately, the double staircase is currently under construction and not accessible. Our room was on the 7th floor above the construction and balcony was being repainted, so we were not allowed to open the window. The nearby location had everything we could want though. Minimart for bottled water right across the street, Starbucks nextdoor, lots of shops on Isla Verde Ave. $15 fee to airport, each way ($12 flat rate plus $1 for each bag). Walking distance to Plato's Restaurant, who had the best garlic and sweet mofongo of all restaurants we tried. Mi Casitas is across the street and was pretty good, too. Gelato restaurant right down the Ave. Bus ride to Old San Juan was $.75 each and took about 35 mins. Then free trolley around Old San Juan. Nice concierge and bellman who helped organize an awesome Catamaran sail boat trip for $99 each that included snorkeling and lunch and rum drinks. Free hotel breakfast buffet did not vary that much daily, but enough options to fill up with a smile. Nice for newlyweds like us but for families, too. Fun waterfall in pool area. Private access to beach. Lots of palm trees in grounds. Did not try to hotel restaurants because they were a little pricey compared to the local faves. Look for bellman James-American, or Jose, local, for best directions in case you rent a car $75 after all the fees and insurance from the Avis on site. Bar in hotel next door the El San Juan called Brava had great music on Friday night the provided a nice atmosphere. Lots of little romantic places to hideaway. Broke even on slot machines in casino. Watch out for the tables, seemed kind of fixed. Join the membership for the hotel chain to get buy one get one wine glass from downstairs bar. We did not tell them it was our honeymoon until we checked in and they sent up a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, which was nice but we don't drink so our neighbors lucked out. Overall nice. I would say it is a solid four star rating and would clarify the construction on the patio and staircase was finished before booking but those were the only cons. Oh, and just in case you didn't read the fine print, they charge $500 extra as a credit card hold at sign in. Even if you don't use it. You get it back at the end though. If you plan accordingly, you will have a great time. 20 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best hotel in San Juan, PR One of the best hotel I stayed for my 4 days vacation. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who's going to spend time in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Just try to get the room by Ocean. I had City View room but cousin had room by Ocean which was amazing.... I will return again. Thank you for your good customer service...... 19 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's all about the Staff... The "brick and mortar" of the hotel is beautiful, but it's the Staff that is bringing us back again. As a matter of fact, we are already booked for another trip in Oct of this year! Due to some exterior refurbishment to the Hotel, we received an upgrade to our room which was great. Mr. Hilton took care of our room for us. He puts in an extra effort to cleaning a room that you'll have to see for yourself. Jowell was our waiter on the beach, and the service was superb all day. Pedro recommended a restaurant that was fantastic. Try the Paella at Atlantica! Can't wait to see you all again on Oct 19th for our Anniversary!!! Charlie and Cheryl 19 August 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TOO NOISY We have not stayed in San Juan for years so we explored Hotels and decided on Intercontinental. The grounds were beautiful, rooms were beautiful BUT construction was going on - We went out to enjoy the beach and pool area - but so much noise with the construction (jack hammers drilling into the cement was beyond loud) Well 15 minutes in that noise and relaxation goes out the door. To top this off we were charged a resort fee! With that noise - I think that was just an insult! 19 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Considerate Thank you for a lovely stay San Juan IC. I know there was evident construction activity in the main building, though this did not detract from the lovely ambience of the property & its superb location. Though the property is a tad ageing, we found the rooms & most facilities well maintained. The club suite was comfortable & well furnished with a delightfully comfortable bed with a nice view over the busy pool area. The Club lounge was comfortable, even without a view?? though the range of drinks & Canapes could be improved, as were not readily replenished. I did enjoy the local coffee & the machine produced a quality blend. The breakfast offering in both the lounge & main restaurant was lovely with a pleasant spread of fresh food. Thoroughly enjoyed the pool & the location on the main beach was convenient with the beach chairs & umbrellas providing pleasant cover from the sun. I found the reception service to be both 'hot & cold" in service delivery, & had to wait some time for some requests, though Concierge Luis is an absolute gem, who afforded very helpful & knowledgeable advice for San Juan. Thank you to FO Manager Judith whom partially resolved my perceived serious issue with one of the hotel on site concessionaire. I am awaiting further response before name & shame applies. 19 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by one concern and several commendations The house cleaning service was less than satisfactory. In fact on two occasions the rooms were not cleaned well. or at all. The commendation- I fell and experienced a nosebleed, the emergency medical team was great, responded rapidly and handled my discomfort with care and with the right equipment. The spa facility is wonderful, the pools are great. J 18 August 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by a little trouble Just a heads up of whats to come if you book this hotel on the actual web page for InterContinental San Juan..I actually book 2 rooms with 2 queen beds in them about 90 days ahead of my departure. Reservation was accepted with no problems although I did ask for portable room fans in each room & never got a reply yes or no!! We did not get them in the rooms. When I arrived at the hotel to check in I got right to a reception gal & she took our reservation papers & then informed me there were no rooms available with 2 beds in them on the same floor. Ok..well guess we can take different floors. No we don't have that either! Only king beds left..Not going to work for me especially with having had a reservation for 2 rooms 2 beds each...too make a long story short the manager came out & he was no help & things looked bad until I mentioned that the need is for 2 beds because of a issue with one of the adults needing her own area..then we got the 2 rooms 2 beds on different floors...One ended up being a handicap room which really was not needed except for the 2 beds. The hotel was under construction so everything was a disaster at the front desk in regards to rooms...then the first morning of vacation the workmen started scrapping paint outside the balcony windows!! 7AM then the ocean view that we paid for was wiped out with vinyl paper put over the balcony doors for the painting of the area!! I was not the only unhappy camper..flight crews were waiting 45 minutes to check in, other guests had been waiting hours for their rooms to be be careful when booking this hotel.. 18 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First Time This was our first time visiting Puerto Rico and staying at the InterContinental. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience. The hotel is very nice. The rooms are updated. Only complaint about the rooms, you can hear all the noise coming from the rooms around you but nothing we could not handle. When we arrived and checked in, I felt the front desk clerk could have been friendlier. Maybe she was a having a bad day as we all do some times. Our room included free breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children. It was just my husband and I so I thought I would receive free breakfast. She told me the room only included breakfast for one since the reservation was made for one. I told her that was my mistake b/c I did not noticed that when I made the reservation. So I just waited until the next day and spoke to someone different and they took care of it for me. Honestly, breakfast was a little lacking. It costs about $29 per guest and they did not have a good variety. Oh and be sure to tip your waiter very nicely or he will not wait on you. One morning, my husband forgot his wallet and could not leave a tip. The next morning, Hector neglected our table. We wondered why and the waiter who helped us told us b/c Hector said we did not tip him the morning before. I understand they depend on tips but it was a honest mistake. The hotel is on the beach which was great. The food at the beach bar was fantastic. Ruth Chris is attached to the hotel. The food there was great as well as the service. All and all we enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back. 18 August 2013
