an elegant Spanish Revival-style building

Isabel V.:” Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, right by the best beaches.”

Kay Pritchett M.; “We’ve stayed in several hotels in San Juan over the years but the restored Condado Vanderbilt is by far nicer and more luxurious than any other hotel we’ve found in that area.”

The name gives it away: the Condado Vanderbilt isn’t your typical beach resort. The oceanfront hotel, financed by the Vanderbilt family in 1919, was considered Puerto Rico’s first luxury hotel. And the Vanderbilts, of course, spared no expense — they hired the same architectural firm responsible for New York’s Grand Central Terminal. After several iterations, including extensive recent renovations and new construction to the tune of $220 million, the Condado Vanderbilt has reopened its doors under new ownership.

The original hotel, an elegant Spanish Revival-style building perched on the water’s edge, remains the heart and soul of the property. But the new Condado Vanderbilt also features two towers, soaring high on either side of the historic building, home to the hotel’s most lavish suites. The Spa Tower has an infinity pool and a terrace with sweeping views — and, of course, a spa — while the Beach Tower has two swimming pools. Guest rooms and suites within both buildings all have ocean views. The look is contemporary, if not cutting-edge, and the amenities plentiful: even the most standard room has linens by Rivolta Carmignani, a bathroom with a stone vanity and a marble shower and tub, a 48-inch HD screen with AppleTV, and a French press with complimentary Puerto Rican coffee. Suites come with round-the-clock butler service and plenty of space to entertain, plus balconies where you can catch the sea breeze.

There’s something to be said, though, for booking one of the heritage rooms in Condado Vanderbilt’s historic original building. Though slightly smaller than guest rooms in the towers, you’re trading off the extra square footage for an air of old-fashioned charm. Regardless of which area of the hotel you stay in, you’re unlikely to spend much time in your room when a beach club with dedicated Pool and Beach Butlers — and a tanning and hydration specialist, to boot — is waiting outside. Rum cocktails flow freely here, naturally, and throughout the hotel’s several restaurants and bars. The table to book is in 1919, where Michelin-starred chef Juan Jose Cuevas does farm-to-table cuisine with a Puerto Rican bent. The name is a nod to the year the Condado Vanderbilt first opened: a proper homage to the nearly hundred-year history of this lovely landmark hotel.

the ocean view  is breathtaking

Pedro  Juan B.:” I live in San Juan and The Gallery Inn is a nice place. An old one style like a museum. They have a pool, bar, and live piano music. Lots of birds around the hotel.”

Sometimes you find a hidden treasure. And in this case a 3-star hidden gem in old town San Juan.
The Gallery Inn is a stunning twenty-three-room boutique hotel that sits high aloft the Old San Juan City’s North Wall, commanding sensuous Atlantic Ocean breezes and gorgeous 360º views over the San Juan Bay and mountainous central regions of Puerto Rico.

Brick patios, antique arches, ausubo beams, and a multitude of sculptured fountains are among the Inn’s many charming architectural details. Nineteen glorious gardens and five active art studios are tucked away between twenty-seven beautifully appointed guest rooms, all with Tempur-Pedic mattresses.

Rooms are artistically scattered through seven juxtaposed levels resembling more of a historic museum than a hotel. You are encouraged to explore the 17th-century mansion to find your own nook of tranquility.
Certainly not-to-be-missed, meandering through the Sunken Garden is the two-waterfall swimming pool constructed around original ancient walls and doorways that wind through its center.
The Inn’s proximity to Old San Juan’s historic monuments, museums, and famous eateries, combined with its North-Wall, fresh sea-breeze location, make this one of Puerto Rico’s best!

There are delightfully unique four-star rooms. The scale according to your needs: from the comfortable Artisan Rooms with full beds to the masterfully appointed Suites which includes among many amenities a sweepingly commanding balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
They make every effort to ensure that your stay will exceed your expectations and as a part of that, all of the rooms are furnished with pressure-relieving Tempur-Pedic Swedish design mattresses and pillows.
Rooms are also gallery spaces. You’ll find silk screens, watercolors, sculptures, and paintings all created by your hostess, Jan D’Esopo.

The Venetian-style Music Room is home to regularly scheduled world-class Chamber Music Concerts. The lofty wine deck offers a breath-taking panorama; the highest views of Old San Juan. Alamanda Gardens with its many fruit trees and night-blooming fragrant flowers offers the perfect place for quiet reflection and relaxation.

‘Explore the Inn and make it up to the top of the building that overlooks the city and the ocean view because it is breathtaking. Every time you think you have found the perfect place to sit and relax you will see something else I want to explore.’

Nature was left to unfurl beautifully

When developer Laurans S. Rockefeller opened his resort in the 1950s, he took care to preserve what made the former plantation, and Puerto Rico, special. Buildings were no taller than palm trees. Nature was left to unfurl beautifully. Access to the ocean remained unobstructed. over the years, the 50-acre retreat has carried on Rockefeller’s legacy of catering of those who value discretion, human connection, and tailored luxury.

Suites and Residences feature signatures tied to Puerto Rico: the ocean just outside your door; the personal attention of an Embajador; outdoor living space; an open-air shower and artwork capturing the colours of nature. The newly transformed Su Casa, built in the 1920s, offers a two-story, five-bedroom villa along the coastline.

Food creates a connection among people and with places, an appreciation for what is familiar and new. At Dorado Beach, dining is a culmination of elements, an exploration of flavours and techniques from Puerto Rico and around the world. From every table, the ocean is a constant reminder that there is always more to experience.

Nature plays a recurring role in the spa experience. An infinity pool overlooks a pineapple garden. Treatments are performed amid the treetops or in pavilions hidden off meandering paths. Body scrubs and poultices are crafted from indigenous ingredients. And apothecary-inspired interiors feature handmade illustrations of native plants.

‘They’ve created the ambience to facilitate happiness, peace, and love. Those things, in the end, are the reason for life.’
