    Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve
    Dorado
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 956 reviewsTripAdvisor (956)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore and offers access to a mile of sandy shoreline and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the three stunning 18-hole golf courses or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resortgoers while participating in supervised Ambassadors of the Environment activities. Meanwhile, each of the resort's opulent guest rooms and suites boasts a balcony, a deep soaking tub and an outdoor shower. And the buck doesn't stop there. The waterfront COA restaurant offers locally inspired cuisine, including various dishes made in a custom wood-burning oven. Or, visitors can savor grilled meats and seafood at Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill or fresh sushi, ceviche and tapas at Positivo Sand Bar. Overall, past guests praised the resort's cuisine and accommodations, although several warned that everything, from the dishes to the spa treatments to the room rates, is expensive. However, the property's daily resort fee covers perks like in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by choosing to stay here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1485 reviewsTripAdvisor (1485)
    Free WiFi

    Luxury is the name of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort's game. Occupying a former coconut plantation along Bahia's shoreline in northeastern Puerto Rico, this property boasts 100-foot palms and enviable beach access.

If you're looking for more action, a concierge can help you arrange hiking, biking and water expeditions. Or, you can unwind with a massage at the Reméde Spa. When hunger sets in, dine on bistro cuisine at the poolside Seagrapes Restaurant or fresh Caribbean fare at the Beach Club Restaurant. Guests caution that a stay here will cost a pretty penny, but thanks to St. RegisMarriott connection, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to cover the cost of their rooms.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2315 reviewsTripAdvisor (2315)
    Free WiFi

    Named after the Condado district in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Frederick William Vanderbilt (the hotel's original owner), the Preferred-affiliated Condado Vanderbilt Hotel has welcomed notable guests like Charles Lindberg, Bob Hope and former President Franklin D. Roosevelt since opening its doors in 1919. Featuring Spanish Revival-style architecture, the hotel combines modern amenities – such as multiple pools (including a beautiful infinity pool), a fitness center and a spa – with traditional touches like luggage porter service and tray ceilings in the lobby. Contemporary perks, including C.O. Bigelow toiletries, French press coffee makers, flat-screen smart TVs and 300-thread-count Rivolta Carmignani linens, are also available in the property's 319 accommodations.

Visitors also praise the food served at Tacos & Tequila, Ola Oceanfront Bistro and 1919 Restaurant, although some caution that meals in all three eateries are pricey. To save some coin, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can apply reward certificates toward room costs.

    La Concha Renaissance San Juan Resort
    San Juan
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 8129 reviewsTripAdvisor (8129)
    Free WiFi

    Stylish and sleek, La Concha boasts striking ocean views from its perch along Condado Beach's sugary sands. But La Concha's position on Puerto Rico's northeastern shoreline isn't the only reason this Renaissance outpost earns high praise from recent guests. Rooms and suites are comfortable and spacious (albeit slightly dated in some areas). Standard amenities include 37-inch flat-screen TVs, walk-in showers, iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi access. Past visitors also attribute a satisfactory stay to La Concha's plentiful entertainment options. Sun-seekers can sprawl along the beach, while history buffs can head less than 4 miles northwest to explore Old San Juan. Still craving more action? Test your luck at the on-site casino or invigorate your taste buds at one of six restaurants. Cuisine options range from American to Italian to Japanese. If you participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn or redeem points here.

    San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino
    San Juan
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 7279 reviewsTripAdvisor (7279)

    Standing above Condado Beach's shimmering waters in San Juan, Puerto Rico, 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 come equipped with minifridges, flat-screen TVs, private balconies and Wi-Fi access (which is one of several amenities that's part of the daily resort fee). Though many recent visitors were satisfied with their cozy digs, some encountered minor inconveniences like broken dresser drawers and no hot water. Despite these drawbacks, previous guests said that the overly accommodating staff and delicious (but pricey) cuisine at the property's three eateries made their stays particularly memorable. After you refuel, arrange a hiking, sailing, snorkeling or golfing expedition through the resort's concierge. Or, unwind with a massage at the Ocean Club Wellness Center. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can use accrued points to cover the cost of your room.

    San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel
    Carolina
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1566 reviewsTripAdvisor (1566)
    Free WiFi

    With its wide array of beachfront amenities – from lounge chairs to a beach concierge – this luxury boutique hotel beckons to 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, which feature ocean-inspired decor and come outfitted with coffee makers with Puerto Rican Yaucono coffee, free Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Although recent guests described the rooms as compact, they said the overly accommodating hotel staff and the superb massages from the in-house masseuses make up for this slight drawback. The hotel's two on-site restaurants, MIST ROOFTOP Bar+Kitchen and ZEST PUERTO RICAN GRILL ROOM, also earned high praise for their fresh, locally sourced ingredients. However, if you're traveling with small children, this property is probably not the right choice for you and your clan; according to previous visitors, the San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel is better suited for adults given its vibrant nightlife scene. You'll find the property flanking Puerto Rico's Isla Verde Beach, about 7 miles southeast of Old San Juan.

    Free WiFi

    Situated between the lush El Yunque National Rainforest and the Atlantic Ocean on Puerto Rico's northeastern coast, this seaside Wyndham resort lures active travelers with its versatile outdoor pursuits.

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 7769 reviewsTripAdvisor (7769)
    Free WiFi

    Overlooking Atlantic and Caribbean waters from its clifftop perch on Puerto Rico's northeastern coast, El Conquistador Resort offers guests a balance of adventure and relaxation. Sun-worshippers can sprawl across Palomino Island's private sands thanks to El Conquistador's alliance with sister hotel Las Casitas Village (though some recent guests consider the brief ferry ride to get there an inconvenience). Those who don't wish to stray too far from their well-appointed guest room – adorned with bright tropical accents, a balcony or patio, a work desk and a flat-screen TV – can lounge by the main pool. Meanwhile, active guests can tee off at the Arthur Hills Golf Course or break a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center. After working up an appetite, travelers can sit for a meal at the snack bar or inside the lobby's Ultra Lounge at Bar 21. Additional dining options and amenities, including a water park and a spa, are expected to reopen after undergoing renovations to repair damage caused by Hurricane Maria. While some of the on-site facilities are closed for refurbishment, the property is waiving its daily resort fee. Plus, this Waldorf Astoria outpost's affiliation with the Hilton brand means Hilton Honors participants can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here.
