We really enjoyed our time at El Convento. The hotel is beautiful and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle just outside. The location is fantastic and we were able to see many things in old San Juan as well as the bacardi plant by walking or taking public transit. The hotel is beautiful and had complimentary wine and cheese reception each night. We also really enjoyed the restaurant, especially dessert. The rooms are simply appointed and not large, but definitely plenty of space for two. We also appreciated the mini-fridge. The air conditioning I had some issues with. It never got quite as cool as I wanted, but it wasn't a big deal. management was very nice so I am sure they would have at least looked into it if I had asked. I don't think it was broken though. Just not that cold. My only real complaint is that we were on the same floor as the restaurant and I felt our room had a little bit of a smell because of it. Not a terrible smell, but food-like. Otherwise, we had a great experience. I do think it was a little on the pricey side, but for that location and hotel I would pay it again.
