I've made reservatiions for the Condado Plaza Hotel in San Juan. Has anyone stayed there? This will be our first time in Puerto Rico.Can anyone recommend a good restuarant also.We will be on the April 6 sailing of the Dawn Princess. Thanks Colleen
We stayed there 3-4 years ago and the hotel is very nice. Seems like it had 2 sections with a cross walk over the street. We ate at the Hotel and food was very good. You can walk around the area without any problems. Have a good cruise.
we stayed at the Condado last Feb. It was a great hotel, clean, friendly staff. we ate at all the restaurants in the hotel except the sushi bar. all the food was great. be sure to ask for an oceanside room on the higher floors so that you can stand on the balcony at night and watch the cruise ships in the distance. also, at the end of each floor by the elevators(pool end), you can see the port...hope you enjoy San Juan as much as we did!...oh yea, within walking distance of the hotel, there is a Mexican restaurant that has fabulous food. I cant remember the name, but its just a hole in the wall that you would probably pass by if you didnt know better. I know its on the same side of the street as the hotel. Ask the staff...They also serve a mexican breakfast that is great! Have fun!
We ate at that little Mexican restaurant as well - I think it is across from "Chilis" restaurant.
The hotel also has a Tony Roma's inside if you want a safe bet, but the Mexican restaurant is more fun. The Condado Plaza has a lovely pool area adjacent to a public beach and the hotel is on Ashford Avenue which is a nice avenue to stroll along.
Try to get to Old San Juan if you can, it has wonderful cobblestone streets, sidewalk cafes and lots and lots of interesting shops.
