We planned our journey to the Caribbean to include a stop over in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Our research revealed that The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Spa in San Juan was a logical choice for the stop, due to its close proximity to the airport.

Puerto Rico is the gateway to the Caribbean. It has big city action in San Juan and tranquility in the countryside and glamorous resorts.

After a city tour we learned that Puerto Rico’s celebration of its 500 years of history in 1992 was centered on the exquisite restoration of old San Juan.

This is the oldest city under the U.S. flag. The tour took us along old cobblestone streets, magnificent mansions that included some of the city’s smartest restaurants, shops, art galleries and museums.

Then we drove 30 minutes from San Juan to the Caribbean National Forest commonly known as El Yunque, which is the only tropical rain forest managed by the U. S. Forest Service.

We saw the beautiful recreation areas and trails. The 165-mile Panoramic Route winds through the mountains, which provides spectacular lookouts. Across the center of Puerto Rico there is a spine of tall green mountains, which divides the northern and southern coasts.

Beautiful Puerto Rico
We enjoyed the contrast between the old style charm and the modern facilities afforded at The Ritz-Carlton. Located in Isla Verde on eight beachfront acres, five minutes from the International Airport, this hotel is a Ritz-Carlton inside and out, with its signature architecture and design. We felt that it had a style and character all of its own. Upon entering the impressive lobby, we noted the beautiful harp music flowing throughout the hotel! We noticed the azure-colored pools and glorious scented gardens stretched to a wide beach.
Excelent furnishings Our bedroom - very comfortable
We were shown to our tastefully appointed Junior Suite that overlooked the pool with an expansive view of the white sandy beach that remains one of
the trademarks of this exceptional property. Nestled beneath our terrace was a hammock located in an inviting garden area near the pool.
This exceptional Spa was housed in an elegant marble and stone building.
The entryway ceilings were painted with exotic vegetation and wildlife, creating a serene environment.

As we approached the treatment rooms, we noticed the beautiful wall-encased aquarium with brightly colored fish. They offered eleven treatment rooms for facials, massages, manicures, pedicures and body wraps. The fitness center offered yoga, aerobics, and other strength and fitness activities. The locker rooms were well stocked with their own signature products. We enjoyed a peaceful environment for massages by the very skilled technicians.

The treatments are fantastic. The indoor pool. Very relaxing.
Club Level Access

We were graciously provided access to Club Level, which is only accessible by a key-activated elevator. Here we enjoyed a bountiful lunch which included home made tasting soup, and wide variety of gourmet prepared foods. This was one of four presentations offered on a daily basis. The Club Level offers the guests larger deluxe rooms, a private lounge and a truly helpful Concierge staff to assist the various needs of the elite traveler.

We both felt refreshed and energized by our treatments and gourmet lunch which caused us to be inspired to swim in the junior Olympic pool.

Following our swim, we retired to our suite to follow the local custom of the “siesta”. We found the outdoor location of the suite to be the perfect choice for a candlelight dinner under the stars on this beautiful evening in San Juan.

Our musical entertainment was provided by nature thru the chirping frogs, night singing birds, crickets, and ocean waves. Following our meal we returned to the Club Level to enjoy the desserts and cordials that were complimented by the beautiful city lights of old San Juan.
We would recommend that this property be considered not only as a stop over prior to traveling to the various islands, but also as a destination hotel and Spa.

Thank you for joining us.

See you at the Spa!
