El Convento Hotel History in San Juan, Puerto Rico


Celebrate more than 360 years of tradition at our luxury old San Juan hotel in Puerto Rico. As the first Carmelite Convent in the Americas, it housed the nuns for 252 years until closing a few days before Christmas in 1903. Vacant for a decade, the abandoned building served as a retail store, a dance hall, and, for the next 40 years, a flophouse without running water, sanitary facilities, or electricity.


Opened on Jan. 27, 1962 as El Convento Hotel, it offered a tranquil, European-style alternative to the glitzy hotels lining the Condado strip. Since that time, we’ve maintained a high standard of luxury and style — constantly improving our amenities and recreational services. Notable present-day features of our boutique-style Puerto Rico luxury hotel include:

  • Named the premier «Small Luxury Hotel» in Puerto Rico
  • Oldest member of Historic Hotels of America
  • Daily Manager’s reception, serving a variety of wine and a variety of international cheeses on La Veranda terrace
  • Plunge pool and heated jacuzzi, offering breathtaking views of San Juan Bay
  • 24-hour fitness center, with free weights, treadmill, elliptical trainer, and stair climber, offering guests unlimited use
  • One restaurant serving cuisine ranging from tapas to traditional Puerto Rican fare
  • Library, with access to our business center
  • El Convento Beach Club, featuring beach and pool privileges at our sister properties, located on two of the best beaches in Puerto Rico
