El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico to reopen before Christmas

The landmark El San Juan Hotel is planning to reopen to guests in time for Christmas according to its management team. The luxury hotel was significantly damaged by Hurricane Maria in September last year, and has been shut since.

The iconic hotel is located in Isla Verde on the island of Puerto Rico, and it is scheduled to reopen on 14th December 2018. The property has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme which has repaired and renovated its accommodation, public spaces and facilities.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this milestone moment in Puerto Rico’s recovery, and for the destination’s hospitality industry, as El San Juan Hotel marks a premier luxury destination within the Caribbean.”

Stated Martin Smith, Managing Director of El San Juan Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton. Mr Smith continued:

“Both rich in history and contemporary in style, the hotel has served as the beating heart of Puerto Rico since it debuted in 1958. We are experience-ready with a rejuvenated look, incomparable amenities and authentic, island hospitality.”

The hotel’s renovation project included the restoration of the hand-carved mahogany which covers the ceilings of the lobby, property columns and the vaulted arch over the registration area. As well as upgraded rooms and suites, the property’s poolside and oceanfront villas, public spaces, pools and gardens have all been refurbished.

“The reopening of El San Juan Hotel comes at a perfect time during Puerto Rico’s holiday season—which happens to be one of the longest in the world.”

Explained Leah Chandler, Chief Marketing Officer of Discover Puerto Rico. She also commented:

“Luxury offerings like El San Juan appeal strongly to leisure and business travellers who seek impeccable service, rich amenities and reimagined accommodations. Discover Puerto Rico is thrilled to welcome this property back to the market for travellers to book, experience and enjoy.”

The beautiful hotel boasts 388 elegant rooms and suites that offer views of the city and turquoise sea. Luxury facilities include four swimming pools, six bars and lounges, the El Juan Beach Club, an 11,000-square-foot grand ballroom for celebrations, exhibitions and conferences, and a state-of-the-art spa and fitness centre. There are five dining outlets led by Executive Chef Gonzalo Rivera, where guests can savour delicious international cuisine with produce supplied by local fishermen and farmers.
