Summary


Pros

Cons

  • Beach is man-made and underwhelming
  • Long walk to the Caribe Hilton main building and its restaurants
  • Many "ocean views" are really city views
  • Only off-site dining within walking distance is a Subway
  • No Wi-Fi in rooms; pricey daily fee for wired Internet access

Bottom Line

The 264-room Condado Lagoon Villas at the Caribe Hilton is the tranquil sibling of its mega-resort sister: The clean, bright rooms are more spacious and the small pool is less crowded. Suites come complete with large bathrooms (many featuring soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers), big balconies and kitchenettes (in some cases with stoves), which can help compensate for the lack of nearby off-premise dining. It shares the sprawling grounds and private man-made beach of the Caribe Hilton, but the beaches are more impressive in Condado and Isla Verde.

Location

On a peninsula between Old San Juan and Condado, removed from the tourist action

Map of Condado Lagoon Villas at Caribe Hilton

The Condado Lagoon Villas at the Caribe Hilton is located on a small peninsula on the eastern end of a narrow island, directly between the popular tourist neighborhoods of Old San Juan and Condado, and is a short drive away from each.

There's little within walking distance, however, and cab fares can add up: Cab rides have a legally set minimum of $12. There are no restaurants nearby (just the six options on-site), and although you can walk to Condado, traveling a mile by foot at night is something most visitors will avoid. Cheap public buses are another option for anyone looking to save money.

  • 15-minute drive to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport
  • 10-minute drive to the San Juan National Historic Site, which includes Fort San Felipe del Morro, Fort San Cristobal, and a portion of the old city walls
  • 20-minute walk to Condado area
  • 9-minute drive to the San Juan Museum of Arts and History
  • 10-minute drive to El Morro Fort
  • 20-minute drive to Isla Verde Beach for great snorkeling
  • 40-minute walk to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 45-minute walk to Cathedral of San Juan Bautista
