I'm the kind of gal who spend months upon months researching for a vacation. It becomes an obsessive hobby in which hours are spent pouring over reviews, pictures, and travel websites.
However this time around me and my love are being spontaneous and decided to book a quick getaway to Puerto Rico for NEXT week!
It started by looking at mid Atlantic beaches just a few hours away from the DC area. Then we pushed it to Miami, and ended up even further south in our vacation search to Puerto Rico! The prices are good, which explains how this trip keeps getting more and more tropical. Work stresses are high so a getaway is much needed to recharge.
Not only will this be a quick trip (3 nights) but I have a limited time to plan it. There are direct flights from DC to PR, which is a major selling point.
I would love to venture out somewhere further into P.R to see some lovely beaches, but for the sake of soaking up every minute of vacation I have been researching hotels with a distance of 30 minutes or less from San Juan's airport.
So far I've narrowed it down to the San Juan Water & Beach Club and the Ritz-Carlton. Both are in the same areas and within the same price range.
Since I'm short on time and have never been to PR I'm reaching out to TA for advice. Has anyone been to these resorts? Which would you recommend? Other hotel recs are also welcomed.
We prefer 4 stars and up and want to be near the sea. Since the trip is so short we plan to nap, swim in the beach, visit old San Juan and eat some good food and have lots of good drinks.
I like the San Juan Water & Beach Club Hotel because of the style and stunning views. The Ritz looks like a gorgeous property. They are so different from each other, not sure which to choose and I'm hesitant since I normally spend so much time researching.
I would appreciate any advice or recommendations! My head is starting to spin by trying to plan this so quickly and choose a good hotel.
Thanks thanks and thanks some more =)
