Note: This resort has suffered damage in the 2017 hurricane season and is not taking reservations through Oct. 31, 2017.
The Caribe Hilton Hotel is located on a peninsula between old San Juan and Condado, and is a great option for families. Just seven miles from the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, it’s a good choice for those who don’t want to venture too far, or rent a car.
Activities abound, including numerous water sports at the resort’s private beach, tennis, and bike rentals. The hotel offers many perks for families: The supervised Camp Coco is available during holidays and in the summer from Monday through Friday for 4 to 16 year olds; children under 5 eat free (all meals) and children 5 to 12 get breakfast free and 50 percent off all other meals (when adults order a regular meal) at some the resort restaurants; and kids 12 and under also receive a welcome gift. Caribe Hilton offers babysitting, a video library, playground, game room and video arcade. Family packages are available.
The resort has 812 rooms, suites and villas. Full kitchens are available in villas.
There are seven restaurants on the premises, including a Starbucks, and children’s menus are available.

We stayed at the Caribe Hilton November 2019 for our one year wedding anniversary. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Here are a few tips from our trip:
1. The pool and surrounding areas are one of this hotel’s best features. The pool has a few different areas for sitting, a swim up bar and hot tubs. We enjoyed sitting here each day, grabbing drinks and enjoying the sun. On busier days it was a challenge to find a chair, but that was mostly on the weekend.
2. Location is great. Right on the water and in walking distance (or short cab) to many restaurants and hot spots in Old San Juan. We considered some hotel that were farther out from the city and I am glad we went with this location - super convenient. There isn’t much of a beach to speak of, but enough sand and access to water to do the trick (if just barely). Beach lovers, this may not be the spot for you.
3. For food, get out and enjoy the local offerings! Food at this hotel is extremely over-priced and just “fine”. Avoid the breakfast buffet at all cost. This was our most expensive and least enjoyable meal of our entire trip! Take a walk to the Mercado just past the parking garage to see a food hall with lots of affordable local options!
4. The rooms are standard, nothing to write home about. We had a great view of the ocean and spent many nights on the balcony taking in the sights.
My wife and I went to Puerto Rico for a little getaway, stayed at this place it is very nice the service is great, great location.
it is built around or even on an old fort location. Very historical. Will definitely come back again.
