Condado Vanderbilt Hotel

Why We Love It

  • It’s ranked the No. 1 hotel in San Juan on TripAdvisor
  • This 5-star property owes its impressive ambiance to its antiquity and design (built in 1919 by the same architects who designed New York’s Grand Central Station)
  • Set both on a beach and in the Condado region, the chicest part of San Juan

“A generation of contemporary travelers has waited patiently for its debut.” – Travel Pulse

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Described as "iconic" and "legendary" by Architectural Digest, The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel began oozing class in a beautiful beachfront setting nearly a century ago. Set in Puerto Rico's "hip enclave" known as the Condado region (Fodor's), this luxury hotel has welcomed important dignitaries, Hollywood stars and American presidents during its long and lavish reign. (The hotel originally opened in 1919 and reopened in 2012 after a 20-year hiatus.)

Inside, expect classic leather furnishings, elegant chandeliers and lots of wood. Outside, find stunning ocean views from the infinity pool deck, a stretch of sandy beach (perhaps a bit rocky for swimming), and a slew of boutiques and fine restaurants on swank Ashford Avenue. The hotel is also home to bars, lounges and three restaurants, including 1919, which specializes in local and organic dishes and is headed by a Michelin-starred chef.

Renae Dec 23, 2015 San Ramon, CA, United States
Enjoyed Most: Outstanding view - excellent service - nearly new top level hotel
Other Comments: We appreciated the adults only sections of ocean front pools and seating areas.
James Dec 22, 2015 Batavia, IL, United States
Enjoyed Most: The staff. They were one of the friendliest and most outgoing hotel staffs I've ever come across.
Other Comments: The entire hotel was perfect in every way. The layout was great. We especially enjoyed the adults only pool area. And the fact that the pools are open 24/7 is also great. Being right on the edge of the water was such a cool experience. The bar made great drinks. The spa was one of the nicest I've ever seen. And enough can't be said about the staff. They were truly top notch. Everyone was so friendly, but without being intrusive. We'll definitely be back!

Enjoyed Most: Beautiful facility (pool, beach, restaurants, rooms) worthy of top hotels anywhere in the world. Equally great friendly staff. Made our vacation amazing. Last but not least, perfect location walking distance to everything. Old San Juan is only 2.5 miles or 10 minutes away but you may not want to leave the resort or the local spots
Other Comments: Excellent staff and service. One of the best we have experienced. The Travelzoo price was great and at the sweet spot. At this price, we think this will be our annual destination

Enjoyed Most: Great hotel. Location perfect - close to la placita and not too far from old San Juan. Service was fantastic. Had a great visit.
Other Comments: Great location. Walking distance to breakfast and lunch spots to grab food. Only issue is hotel doesn't get a lot of sun due to buildings etc. we got a few good hours but definitely not a full day. We stayed in west tower. Room was renovated. Very comfortable beds. Lots of outlets. Modern bathroom. Complimentary mini bar. Wifi worked well.

Other Comments: the $50 spa credit was extremely misleading. it could only be used on spa services of 50-minutes or more, but I don't remember reading that in the fine print anywhere.
