Began our honeymoon with three nights at El Convento. A truly fabulous experience, even if slightly tainted by the fact that they were renovating the courtyard. But the hotel provided free breakfasts (which were quite good, the omelette station in particular as well as the rest of the buffet). Tapas bar was good too. The rooms were very comfortable, and the plunge pool and hot tub on the roof were very relaxing and the layout overall was great. It did feel like a luxury hotel, but by far the best thing was the location. Right in the heart of Old San Juan, steps down to the Red Gate, steps up to El Morro and the museums and the Cathedral, all amazing. We're glad we went at the beginning of January rather than in the middle of the San Sebastien festival where we didn't think we'd get much sleep but overall really enjoyed the hotel. Excellent service from the staff as well. Highly recommended.
