My husband and I stayed here for our vacation in early May. I knew of and stayed at this Embassy on previous business trips. The hotel is in a great location - near the beach and a very short walk to restaurants, stores and shopping. There is an excellent puerto rican restaurant MiCasita nearby the hotel (in the shopping center where burger king is on isla verde ave). It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The portions were good and prices extremely reasonable. The mofongo is delicious! We loved it so much we went back a second time. Skip Metropol (Cuban and PR food) - the staff was rude and restaurant is over-rated. The outback in the hotel was also very good and reasonable.
We did not rent a car. The front desk will help you arrange any side trips. We went on 2 day trips both with same company. 1) El Yunque (rainforest) and Luquillo Beach 2) Old San Juan and Bacardi Distillery. We thoroughly enjoyed both trips.
As with all Embassy Suites - the free breakfast and free manager's reception are always nice extras. The breakfast selections are excellent! We usually ate a big enough breakfast we only needed a snack for lunch.
The pool area is very nice - lots of chairs, tables etc. Towels have seen better days. The pool bar offers a nice variety of drinks. My husband used the gym and it's a pretty nice gym for a hotel! One of the nicer I have seen.
It is very close to airport so short travel time. The noise from the airport was certainly tolerable. You will notice it the most when you're at the pool but it's not like there are landings every minute!
I will definitely return to this hotel.
