The renovation project was led by the hotel and restaurant designer Jeffery Beers, and local Puerto Rican artist Luis Torruella, who created an eight-foot sphere that floats in a pool of water at the front of the hotel and a cobblestone plaza entrance. The art installation was introduced to symbolise the hotel’s relationship with music, dance and nature.
El San Juan Hotel was originally designed by Morris Lapidus and Max Borges, and is located on 15 acres of beachfront, just two miles from the Luis Munoz Marín International Airport. While staying in the chic district of Isla Verde, holidaymakers can dine in exquisite restaurants, enjoy drinks and live music in bars and clubs, shop in boutiques, visit historical sites, or relax on the crescent-shaped beach.
During their stay at the hotel, guests can relax on beach cabanas, the tropical gardens, or by the poolside in the Caribbean sunshine. In San Juan, tourists can discover the history of the city by wandering along the streets admiring the 16th-century Spanish colonial architecture such as El Morro, El Catedral de San Juan Bautista and La Fortaleza. In Old San Juan, narrow streets lead to old theatres and museums, while the green parks are a great place for picnics, games, or views of the harbour or mountains.
