Caribe hotel san juan puerto rico: Caribe Hilton, San Juan Gallery

Caribe Hilton – Hotel Review

What are your first impressions of this place?
The Caribe Hilton’s iconic neon sign, in a scripted postwar-era font, is as recognizable on the San Juan skyline as the historic El Morro fort. The logo also welcomes guests against the rippling white tile at check-in, but the real focal point of the lobby is the landmark Caribar, with its curving, floor-to-ceiling windows and alluring vista of the Atlantic Ocean.

What’s the backstory?
Opened in 1949, this was the first Hilton hotel outside of the mainland United States. Though a more raucous culture has been replaced by family-friendliness, the Caribe retains its glam-trop energy, attracting everyone from Gloria Swanson to Elizabeth Taylor to Johnny Depp over the years. Today, it’s the setting for San Juan’s latest comeback story, reopening after a 15-month closure following Hurricane Maria, thanks to a $150 million top-to-bottom renovation. With 652 rooms, it’s one of San Juan’s largest hotels, yet its autonomy among 17 acres make it feel more intimate than its capacity would suggest.

How are the rooms?
Decorated in bone-white tones with splashes of seafoam, rooms nod to mid-century-modern design. All have balconies and views, either of the ocean or of the property’s lush tropical gardens.

Is there a charge for Wi-Fi?
Wi-Fi is included in the $42 resort fee.

If we’re seeking for a meal without venturing off-site, what are we looking at?
The food offerings here match the size of the resort. Seven full-service restaurants include Caribar, the purported birthplace of the piña colada, where guests can sip the original (rum, cream of coconut, pineapple juice) or variations like the light and punchy clear colada (coconut-infused white rum, clarified pineapple juice, pineapple syrup, and coconut water, served with a coconut ice pop) while nibbling on small plates. Those looking for local flavors can try Mojito’s Caribbean Fusion or Lola’s and its Puerto Rican cuisine; meanwhile, a dozen pastas headline the menu at Rustica Italian Ristorante, and a branch of Morton’s steakhouse serves its signature prime-aged beef.

How’s the service? Return guests will be relieved that the property welcomed back several loyal staff members upon reopening, including many who have worked here for decades.

And who tends to stay here?
Creatures of convenience and comfort in casual resort wear.

Where is the hotel, and how does it fit in with the surroundings?
The hotel sits smack between the fashionable Condado neighborhood and historic Old San Juan, offering easy access between the city’s old and new. Paseo Caribe, an entertainment and shopping complex, abuts the property, and is packed with food, drink, music, art, and other cultural amusements.

Any other perks we should know about?
Though all beaches in San Juan are public by law, Caribe Hilton’s beach feels private, as it stretches through a self-contained cove, lending a secluded and exclusive feel. A tropical garden, complete with bird sanctuary, gives guests a verdant alternative to the beach. The 17-acre property also includes a full-service spa, fitness center, on-site boutiques, multi-tiered pools, playground, and the newly-inaugurated tennis center, opened in partnership with Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig.

Bottom line: Who is this hotel best for?
An ideal stay for multi-generational families, this ticks off all the boxes for resort amenities, from swim-up bar and beach cabanas to island adventures like snuba and night kayaking.

Inside Puerto Rico’s Caribe Hilton, the Winter Getaway You Need Right Now

As the weather turns colder, there’s nothing better than a getaway to a Caribbean resort. Sun, sand, and spectacular culture combine for a vacation that allows you to chill in only the best way. And if you choose Puerto Rico, Americans don’t even need a passport or some of the more complicated re-entry requirements that can sometimes make transportation a hassle.

Added to that, Puerto Rico has the highest vaccination rate of any place in America, and fares to San Juan from many destinations in the United States are among the lowest we’ve seen them all year.

One of our favorite places to stay in Puerto Rico is the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, a high-end resort with a lot of history!

Many travelers know and love this lush place in Puerto Rican paradise as the birthplace of the piña colada. But while the Caribe Hilton does serve up a record number of coconut rum cocktails, the iconic hotel has much more to offer than simply delightful sips and sunshine.

The Caribe Hilton is the Hilton brand’s first international resort, and it remains a gem of the Caribbean as it has since it first started dazzling guests when it opened in 1949.

The property features a variety of spacious rooms and suites in different towers, all renovated in 2019. Minimalist décor keeps attention on the stunning ocean views, and because the hotel is located on a peninsula, every room has an ocean view.

This family-friendly resort sits on a full 17 acres, making it definitely one of the largest resorts in Puerto Rico. And on its 17 acres, the Caribe Hilton has plenty to explore, including six restaurants and bars, an outdoor pool and spa, and private beach access.

While it is great for adults and couples, this is a popular one for intergenerational families and families with kids for sure. That’s because the Caribe Hilton offers cultural fun — like the chance to learn to make Puerto Rico’s famed Mofongo, or lessons and tastings on the history of the piña colada.

Another feature that guests love is the Caribe Hilton’s tropical gardens and bird sanctuary. Guests enjoy the serenity of the beautiful plants and flowers, the koi pond, and roaming peacocks in a public, but more secluded part of the hotel. But there is wildlife to see all over, including birds greeting you right in the hotel lobby!

Caribe Hilton hotel guests have always come here for the serenity, but also the scene. Some famous guests have stayed here over the years, so when you check in, you know you’ll be walking in the same sandy footsteps of visitors like Gloria Swanson, David Rockefeller, Elizabeth Taylor, and President Barack Obama.

So whether its culture, history, potential celeb sightings — or just sun and fun — there are so many reasons a stay at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico is the winter getaway you need right now.
