Hotel El Convento

A 350-year-old former Carmelite convent in the heart of San Juan. Hotel El Convento is an alluring mix of Spanish colonial architecture and contemporary styling with a panoramic terrace on the rooftop with a plunge pool and Jacuzzi, a broad selection of dining options and a fitness centre.

There is a distinctly refined yet friendly ambiance here. Classic elegance comes in the form of high ceilings, mahogany beams, handcrafted tiles, antique chests and wrought ironwork, all of which bears the stamp of period authenticity. Each of the 58 hotel guest rooms provide captivating views of Old San Juan and the bay.

Take morning coffee in a pretty courtyard and cool off in the afternoon in the rooftop plunge pool. Discover a wealth of churches, cathedrals and forts in San Juan or head for the hotel’s beach club before relaxing over pre-dinner cocktails on La Veranda Terrace in the evening.
