So I feel VERY stupid posting this. First of all - I've never used priceline. Second - I'm looking at the hotel ratings in San Juan and they are TERRIBLE. Third I don't know how close in proximity everything is – beach/restaurants/cruise port/shops/airport etc.
So here's the deal - my mother and I are going cruising in May. We plan on staying in San Juan for 3 days to enjoy what it has to offer (whatever we can get our hands on). I have no idea where to stay but I’m assuming the closer to Old San Juan the better???? Also, noticed that hotels are relatively expensive and I don’t want to spend too much money on them because a) we won’t be spending much time there and b) I want to save money on excursions/activities/souvenirs/shopping.
So… here is where priceline comes in – and remember I’ve never used it and I kinda worry because I have to give my credit card and all. I also don’t know what the chances are of failing a bid and when you hear back from it
In priceline - try to navigate map and all - for Old San Juan - I see: Posada San Francisco, Casablanca Hotel, Chateau Cervantes, Sheraton Old San Juan (not sure if they are all in a bid and at what stars etc). There is also Ocean Park - Isla Verde – second closest location to San Juan (which I don’t know how far is located from the cruise port, restaurants, shopping, old San Juan etc). There are a TON of hotels around that area….
Any advice on this?
