I had only a short stay in Puerto Rico, so I decided to spend the entire 4 days in Old San Juan, which I had toured a couple of years ago. I decided to book a luxury property, something I don't usually do on my teacher's salary, and am so glad that I did! El Convento is an amazing property, kind of a cross between a museum filled with beautiful artifacts and a modern hotel with all of the required amenities. I requested a room on the top floor, with a view of the water, and they assigned me to room 512, which was perfect. It was in a great location for walking all over Old San Juan, which I did each day of my stay. The staff is professional and personable, the food of a very high quality, the accommodations comfortable and beautiful. I feel like I've said "beautiful" too many times, but it is really the only word that I can think of to describe the property. There was a wedding while I was there, and I would have been worried about noise had it not been for the soundproof door of my room. Once closed I didn't hear a thing! El Convento was worth every penny.
