How it Ranks: Hotel El Convento ranks #3 out of 319 Puerto Rico Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Puerto Rico.

Our Take: Housed in a 17th-century convent, this opulent Old San Juan property impresses guests with its Old World allures, like its Andalusian tile floors, vintage antiques and mahogany beams. But that's not all El Convento has going for it: Guests also praise the hotel's modern comforts, like flat-screen TVs and a Bose radio system. Apart from its enchanting setting, recent visitors also give this boutique hotel high marks for its outstanding service. Hotel El Convento resides in the middle of Old San Juan, offering easy access to historic attractions like San Cristobal Fortress and El Morro. There's also plenty to do at the hotel: You can dip into a plunge pool and Jacuzzi overlooking San Juan Bay, nosh on Spanish tapas or Puerto Rican fare at three on-site restaurants, or lounge at the hotel reception, where complimentary wines and hors d'oeuvres are provided every afternoon.
