On week of 6/29 I stayed. We were able to check-in the room at 12:00pm which was amazing and great start to the trip. Grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. Pool is huge and has different sections. Bigger than any other resort in condado. Beach was fabulous! PRIVATE :) meaning no locals and beachside umbrella, chair, and food service. Unlike the rest of condado beach, this resort has a break wall therefore allows you to swim far out and not worry about strong currents or big fish. There is enough marine life for snorkeling to keep you busy.
On-site restaurants plenty to choose from to accommodate any budget. Sit-downs are on the higher end per usual for all hotels.
If you decide to walk to ashford ave. It is very safe about a 5-15 min to walk to restaurants, casinos, shops, etc. Worth the walk to save $ on food and try Puerto Rican cuisine and Happy hour drinks. There is security everywhere leaving the hotel before the bridge. Walk whenever you can, taxis range from $12-17 for just 1.5 miles. Save the taxi $ for late nights.
During our trip, we visited La Concha, Condado Plaza, and Marriott for drinks and casinos. El Caribe Hilton was superior by far! Pool, beach, and grounds were much bigger and versatile than any of the others. Made us really appreciate our hotel even more!
Our refrigerator in the room did not work upon arrival. Someone immediately came and replaced it. The hotel took care of our $50 bar bill from the previous night for the inconvenience.
