This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore where guests have access to a mile of sandy shoreline and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the stunning 72-hole golf course or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resort-goers at the aquatic playground. Meanwhile, each of the resort's opulent suites boasts its own rooftop balcony or private plunge pool along with outdoor showers. And the buck doesn't stop there. The swanky Mi Casa restaurant offers culinary specialties designed by distinguished chef José Andrés. (Recent travelers highlight Positivo Sand Bar and Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill as enticing dining options, too.) But, according to recent guests, what separates this hotel apart from its rivals is its attentive hotel staff members, who go above and beyond to ensure guests are happy. more

Stylish and sleek, La Concha boasts striking ocean views from its perch along Condado's sugary sands.

The guest rooms have been enriched with creature comforts (including 37-inch flat-screen TVs, spa-style showers and iPod dock stations).

Sun-seekers can sprawl along the beach while history buffs can explore Old San Juan (less than 3 miles west of the resort). Still craving more action? Test your luck at roulette at the Casino del Mar or invigorate your taste buds at one of the on-site restaurants, the sushi bar or the Aroma Cafe. If you participate in Marriott's rewards program, you can earn or cash in points here. more

Encompassing 8 acres of Isla Verde along San Juan's northern coast, The Ritz-Carlton boasts 416 recently renovated rooms accented with 400-thread-count Frette linens, goose-down bedding and marble baths. But believe it or not, the upscale interiors are not what recent guests are raving about. Visitors say that The Ritz-Carlton's impeccable service is what made their stay memorable. But those looking for ultra-luxurious amenities will be happy to find an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, two professional tennis courts, a full-service spa and an on-site casino at their disposal (along with easy access to El Morro and Puerto Rico's sugary sands). When dinnertime rolls around, placate your appetite with the tantalizing culinary specialties offered at the five on-site restaurants. Another bonus of staying here: Thanks to Ritz's Marriott ties, those participating in the company's rewards program have the opportunity to earn free nights for choosing to stay here. more

This secluded property in Rincón features all the trappings of a luxurious resort, from its high-end facilities to its lofty duplex suites, complete with soaking tubs, walk-in jet showers, kitchenettes and private pools.

Some recent guests also caution that the resort's seclusion can lead to boredom. more

With isolated sands, clear waters and pristine SWING tennis courts, the W Retreat & Spa on Vieques Island (located just 8 miles east of Puerto Rico) is tailor-made for outdoor enthusiasts.

When you're ready to eat, delight in light fare at WET or savor authentic Caribbean-inspired dishes as Sorcé. Though recent guests say getting to Vieques can be a trek, they agree that the W property – with its striking scenery and warm staff – is well worth the time spent in transit.

Standing above Condado Beach's shimmering waters in San Juan, this Marriott outpost welcomes guests with prime shore access, a relaxed pool area and plenty of activities. The resort's 527 guest rooms and suites feature Marriott's signature Revive bedding, flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Though many recent visitors were satisfied with their cozy digs, some note that the bathrooms were smaller than they had expected. Despite this drawback, previous guests said that the overly accommodating staff and delicious (but pricey) cuisine at the property's on-site eateries made their stay particularly memorable. After you refuel, arrange a hiking, sailing, snorkeling or golfing expedition through the resort. Afterward, unwind with a deep-tissue massage at the Ocean Club Wellness Center. Thanks to this property's Marriott ties, the San Juan Marriott Resort allows Marriott Rewards members to redeem or earn points here. more

With its wide array of beachfront amenities – from lounge chairs to a beach concierge – this luxury boutique hotel beckons sun-seekers. But if you prefer to leave the sand behind, fishing, kayaking and boating expeditions can be arranged with the hotel concierge. Afterward, retreat to your stylish digs, decked with oceanic-inspired decor, iHome radios, Puerto Rican Yaucono coffee and 32-inch flat-screen TVs. Although recent guests claim the rooms are compact, they say the overly accommodating hotel staff makes up for this slight drawback. The hotel's two on-site restaurants, Mist Rooftop Bar & Kitchen and Zest Restaurant, also receive high praise for their fresh, locally sourced ingredients. However, if you're traveling with small children, this hotel is probably not the right choice for you and your clan; according to recent visitors, the San Juan Water Beach Club is better suited for adults given its vibrant night scene. You'll find the San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel flanking Isla Verde beach, about 7 miles east of Old San Juan. more
