Olive Boutique Hotel

Olive Boutique Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 15-room boutique hotel in San Juan was opened by local newlyweds in 2012, and inspired by their travels through Italy, Spain, France, and Morocco. It is already making a name for itself, and the owners are making improvements based on initial guest feedback (such as enclosing the originally open-layout bathrooms for more privacy, and adding verandas). For better views (and more space), guests can head upstairs to the cool rooftop deck with plunge pool for pre- and post-dinner drinks. During the day, most prefer to hit the beach two blocks away. Olive Boutique Hotel appeals to mostly romantics, but business travelers can impress clients here, and may appreciate the free Wi-Fi and easy access to Condado. Free breakfast is served daily.
Hotel El Convento

Hotel El Convento Rating: 4.0 Pearls

There is nothing quite like European-style El Convento in the medieval city of Old San Juan. It was a convent for 252 years, and today it's the neighborhood's principal upscale hotel, offering 58 elegant rooms and suites filled with Spanish antique treasures and modern amenities. Its history is present everywhere, from the exposed wood beams to the 350-year-old Nispero tree rising high above the romantic courtyard. A nightly wine and cheese reception takes place on the terrace, allowing guests (mostly couples) to mingle while overlooking views of San Juan Bay. The main restaurant offers al fresco fine dining in the courtyard; other features include the beautiful sun terrace and small outdoor pool. Service is a priority here, and it shows.
SOFO CasaBlanca Hotel

SOFO CasaBlanca Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The draw of SOFO CasaBlanca Hotel is its location -- right in the middle of historic Old San Juan, near countless restaurants, nightclubs, and shops. But once you get past the funky, chic decor of the lobby, the hallways are worn and musty, and the rooms -- despite the cute, eclectic decor -- are on the small side, with thin walls, tiny bathrooms (that have temperamental water pressure and temperature), and little light. Perks like free breakfast and Internet add value, but it's worth comparing rates with The Gallery Inn and Villa Herencia.
San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel

San Juan Water Beach Club Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 80-room Water Club offers great value in ritzy Isla Verde, San Juan. It has all of the beach vacation essentials: a location almost right on the beach (you have to take a small pathway by the parking lot), two on-site restaurants, a rooftop pool, and bright rooms. The rooms are contemporary and sparse, with just a blue accent wall and little furniture, but they do have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and coffeemakers. Hotel features aren't as impressive as at the more expensive properties nearby: the pool and fitness center are both very small, and there's no full spa (although beachside and in-room massages are available). But if your priorities are access to a great beach and solid rooms, it's hard to do much better for the price in San Juan.
Acacia Boutique Hotel

Acacia Boutique Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This small, laid-back, mid-range hotel has 22 rooms along a quiet residential street in San Juan about a mile from the Condado tourist hub and a block from the beach. Charming interiors and basic Spanish-style rooms are just starting to show some age. Some rooms have private balconies (and partial ocean views), but anyone is welcome to enjoy the rooftop deck -- a great place to BYO drinks before dinner. The first-floor restaurant serves breakfast and then re-opens again for dinner with a gourmet menu and decent wine list. For more restaurant and nightlife options, just head west along Avenida Ashford via foot or taxi. Guests also have access to the (small) pool and bar at the sister property down the block. Parking in this area might be a challenge.
Casa Condado Hotel

Casa Condado Hotel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This no-frills hotel has 24 clean, sparsely decorated rooms, with wooden floors, small flat-screen TVs, and loud AC units. Bathrooms are nothing special either, with large, concrete-floor showers and no counter space. The hotel itself has no amenities whatsoever -- no elevator, no fitness center, no pool -- but its location in the heart of the glitzy Condado neighborhood, a block from the beach, is convenient. Also, there’s a pleasant terrace where the (free) continental breakfast is served, free Wi-Fi in the common areas, and a nice sushi restaurant.
Hacienda Tamarindo

Hacienda Tamarindo Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 17-room bed & breakfast on a secluded part of Vieques island, near the town of Esperanza, is owned by Vermont couple. It was decorated by the missus -- a former interior designer -- who keeps historic aspects in tact, like the nearly 270-year-old Tamarind tree at the center of the property. The New England influence is felt in the antique decor and the huge country-style breakfast portions (included in the price). An elegant outdoor pool is a point of pride for the mister with a pretty terrace and vistas of the ocean beyond. After a day in the sun, self-serve drinks can be prepared in the air-conditioned library for a low-key evening with only the sound of tree frogs as they sing their evening chorus. A car is recommended to get to beaches, and restaurants, as well as a grocery store for stocking in-room coolers (there are no mini-fridges).
Villa Herencia

Villa Herencia Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This charming boutique hotel on a quiet side street in Old San Juan might make you feel like you've stepped back in time. Each of the eight rooms is furnished differently, but all share comfortable beds, high ceilings, antique furniture, ornate light fixtures, and direct access to a sunny courtyard. In the common areas, the old-world decor blends with quirky, eclectic modern accents, like zebra-print chairs and bright oil paintings. But while the location in Old San Juan helps make this a romantic spot, the hotel lacks a pool and a full-service staff, and it's a 10-minute drive to the beach.
The Gallery Inn

The Gallery Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Owned by the same couple for decades, the historic Gallery Inn is run like an informal B&B -- guests are greeted by name, much of what the restaurant serves is grown in the garden, and no two rooms are the same (though they do share lots of Spanish-style charm). Also like a B&B, the hotel lacks amenities such as TVs and a fitness center. The property's main draws include the convenient Old San Juan location, ocean views from the wine deck, and the artsy, laid-back feel. The innkeepers are both artists, and it's evident they put thought into every detail of the restoration -- expect beautiful old-world details like brick floors, wood beam ceilings, rich rugs, sculptures, and antique knickknacks.
