Boasting stunning seaside views from its perch along a 17-acre peninsula, Caribe Hilton attracts travelers looking for dramatic scenery and an enviable location. When you're not kicking back in your accommodations (which sport neutral tones, 32-inch flat-screen TVs and Serenity beds), pamper yourself with a rejuvenating treatment at the Olas Spa. Then, venture to the inviting oceanfront pool complex or the private beachfront for some fun in the sun. When hunger sets in, head to the swim-up Atlantico Pool Bar & Grill to enjoy live music and refreshments, or to one of the resort's other dining venues, including a Morton's Steakhouse. Previous guests praise the Piña Colada Club for its rave-worthy tropical cocktails. Some recent guests noted that the property sits about 2 miles back from the action in Old San Juan. As part of the Hilton clan, this property allows those participating in the Hilton Honors program to cash in or redeem credits here. Note: The hotel was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in spring 2019.

Critic Reviews



With its own beach and large swatches of tropical gardens, the Caribe Hilton is still one of San Juan's finest properties in a city full of them.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

Lonely Planet


The Caribe was constructed in 1949 and played host to numerous celebrities throughout the 1950s and '60s. Its recently renovated rooms are loaded with amenities, and the sprawling pool and beach area includes a lawn chessboard, scores of hammocks and an interesting mini-peninsula with lounge beds.

Travel + Leisure


Sharing a private peninsula with 17 acres of tropical gardens and beach, Caribe Hilton resides between Old San Juan and Condado, home to the city's trendiest clubs and restaurants. Across the open-air lobby from the main entrance is the oceanfront Oasis Bar, where the piña colada was invented in 1954.



Not many hotels can lay claim to their own fort, but Fortín San Gerónimo del Boquerón, which once guarded the entrance to San Juan Bay, is on the grounds of this sprawling resort, one of the largest in Puerto Rico. It has a private beach, a multilevel pool with swim-up bar, a luxurious spa, and one of the best-developed kids' programs on the island.

Shermans Travel


Covering a 17-acre spread, the location right between Old San Juan and Condado is ideal – a kind of junction between the city's history and its future. Rooms are smallish, standard-issue-corporate in style, but most have balconies and marble bathrooms.
