We were thrilled with every aspect of our stay at El Convento in early Dec. 2013. Probably thanks to booking the previous January, we were blessed to stay in Room 512 with a glorious view of the sunset over the water. A spacious room, extremely comfortable bed, plenty of space for luggage and quiet welcomed us. The hotel's atmosphere is simple elegance, historic elements alongside modern convenience, tapestries and carved chairs, atrium with live trees and flowers, an herb garden on the fourth floor terrace, lovely pool area. We had lunch one day at the tapas bar -- delicious gazpacho. Constantly available coffee, tea and fruit on the third floor were greatly appreciated. The nightly wine and cheese offerings change daily. Get there early for a table outdoors. Breakfast on the first floor was our only disappointment… probably our fault for ordering yogurt and fruit; don't do that! On our final evening, a Sat., I was just saying we hadn't seen any flamenco when music began. In the tapas bar, a wonderful flamenco dancer moved among the diners! She was visible from the balcony -- fantastic!!
The neighborhood surrounding El Convento delivers the best of Old San Juan, entirely within walking distance. Delights await at every corner. And the area is cat lovers' heaven!
Sometimes don't you deserve the best? When you do, head for Hotel El Convento.
