The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan
A truly pleasurable experience!
The missus and I spent a couple of days after a business meeting in San Juan. The food was of a very high standard (BLT had one of the nicest rib eyes ever!) and the staff did absolutely everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We'll definitely be returning in the near future.

The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan
Adoramos Porto Rico, mas não ficaríamos nesse hotel de novo. Os quartos são limpos e confortáveis. Os quartos com "vista para a cidade" dão para o aeroporto internacional, mas o barulho não é problema. Os funcionários na recepção foram extremamente prestativos e solidários quando nossa bagagem foi extraviada no voo para lá e quando quisemos fazer um passeio até uma das ilhas secundárias. Fora isso, as instalações e o padrão do atendimento não justificam os valores cobrados pelo quarto e pela taxa do resort. A praia é mediana, pelos padrões porto-riquenhos e as opções de jantar são limitadas, não possuem charme e são caras. Ao chegarmos tarde da noite no aeroporto, o transporte que havíamos solicitado do hotel não foi nos pegar (nos deram a ida até o aeroporto de graça no fim das férias). Nos perguntaram se estaríamos comemorando alguma data especial durante nossa estadia e falei de nosso aniversário de casamento. Só que não fizeram nada até eu avisar, já no dia seguinte, que a data havia passado em branco. Ficamos em outros dois hotéis Ritz Carlton nos últimos dois anos (Grande Caimão e Nova York).

Original review:
We loved Puerto Rico but would not stay at this hotel again. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The "City View" rooms face the international airport but noise was not a problem. The staff at the concierge desk were extremely helpful and supportive both when one of our bags was lost on the inbound flight and when we wanted to make a trip to one of the outer islands. Otherwise the facilities and the standards of service do not warrant the level of the room price and daily resort fee. The beach is average by Puerto Rican standards and the choice of dining is limited, unauthentic and expensive. On our arrival late at night at the airport the transport which we had asked the hotel to organise failed to meet us (we were given a free ride back to the airport at the end of the holiday). We were asked whether we were marking any special event during our stay and I advised the hotel of the date of our wedding anniversary which they then failed to recognise in any way whatsoever until the following day when I pointed out what had happened. We have stayed at two other Ritz Carlton properties in the last two years (Grand Cayman and New York).
