Historic monument, tapas restaurant, meeting place, coffee bar and evocative colonial-era building – El Convento is Puerto Rico’s most complete atmospheric and multifaceted hotel. Built in 1651 as the New World’s first Carmelite convent, the 67 rooms and five suites (2nd-floor rooms have the highest ceilings) are gorgeously decorated with Andalusian tiles, mahogany and thick rugs. Service is impeccable from reception to the bar.
This sturdy baroque beacon is packed with priceless old-world relics and oozes subtle ‘Siglo de Oro’ (Golden Age) charm. Check out the Goya-esque tapestries in the hallway or the late-afternoon tranquility of the enclosed inner courtyard. Plunge into the tiny pool and Jacuzzi with sweeping views over the cathedral and Old San Juan. If you're aching for beach time, head to it's sister property, La Concha, just a short cab ride away. The nightly wine and food reception may preclude outside dinner plans.
