Ritz-Carlton or InterContinental San Juan?

Was all set to book the Intercontinental when I came across a promotion from the Ritz - Stay three nights get the fourth night free. This makes an $8.00 price difference between the two hotels - with the Ritz being more expensive :) Family of four two adults and a17 year old and a 13 year old. Going for a quick four night getaway to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary. Touring Old San Juan, going to the beach and zip lining are the only planned activities. The reviews seem to show Intercontinental being the better of the two. But, we also understand that a few negative reviews happen - no way to make every one happy. Any thoughts one way or the other? Thank you! We will be there in May.

The Ritz Carlton is long overdue for renovation. Many reviews are critical of the tired decor. The Intercontinental was recently renovated.

I vote for Intercontinental. Hands down. Much better location.

The only appeal of the Ritz in Isla Verde is the name. Boring hotel, and the location is not great.

Would love to hear if you were pleased with the decision for Intercontinental? We are booking and having debate if there's really enough significant difference that's worthy of the higher Ritz price.
