El Convento, Small Luxury Hotels of the World Winner

Spread the love

I love Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the properties are so unique and everything is done just right. The very first property was El Convento in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is also one of my favorites, an old Carmelite nunnery dating from 1646. Its location in stunning old San Juan certainly adds to the mix but the large well decorated rooms would stand out in a strip mall. The feeling is old world but every modern convenience is available. A wine and cheese party happens every night in the library and fantastic. In fact all of the restaurants in the old courtyard delicious and beautiful, eye candy is found throughout the hotel. The small plunge pool and hot tub on the roof is an amazing place to see old San Juan in comfort, a fair trade for any hotel on the island that is beach front. Still they have a beach club if you need. Not a cheap place but sure to make you a very happy visitor to the island. One of my all-time favorites!
