More Room Types

On the grounds of the first nunnery in the Americas, Hotel El Convento is the perfect retreat for those looking to experience Old San Juan and enjoy Puerto Rico’s beaches.

Guest rooms with Andalusian tile floors under exposed mahogany beams are furnished with handcrafted Spanish antiques, wrought-iron beds and marble bathrooms. All accommodations offer outdoor space from Juliet balconies to private terraces set against the backdrop of glittering San Juan Bay.

Palm trees frame the bay in views from the rooftop plunge pool and Jacuzzi; those craving sand between their toes can access the beaches at El Convento’s sister property. Three on-site restaurants give guests the option of gourmet candlelit dinners in the courtyard, alfresco Spanish tapas, and a hip pizzeria. A complimentary wine and hor d’ouvres hour is held at dusk in the garden.

Old San Juan’s historic forts, charming cathedrals and world-class museums are within walking distance. El Yunque Rain Forest is 25 miles from the hotel.
