Overview

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 Marriott Bonvoy program have the opportunity to earn free nights for choosing to stay here. Note: The hotel was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in 2019.

Elegant marble floors and fountains don't undermine the beach getaway feel. The hotel's sandy stretch is lovely, as is the cruciform pool, lined with statues of the chain's signature lion.

Marriott’s top-tier hotel in the capital of San Juan offers 416 rooms and suites and is an easy five-minute drive from the airport along Isla Verde beach. Rooms are contemporary and upscale if a tad generic, and and most are without balconies.

Cloaked in marble, crystal, dark woods, brocade fabrics, and gilded moldings, the 416-room Ritz is easily San Juan's most opulent resort.
