This small, high-rise, beachfront hotel is tucked into a private corner of Isla Verda beach and is within walking distance of casinos & shops. All rooms overlook the 1,000-foot wide beach.
In the posh Isla Verde area, facing a palm-lined beach, San Juan's only boutique hotel uses an aquatic theme to create a stylish environment for its fashionable guests.
To get to your room, step into the elevator with its glassed-in waterfall, neon blue glow, and open ceiling. When the doors open, you hear the sound of gently rolling surf in the corridor. At one end of the floor, lit votive candles are strewn among polished river rocks; at the other, another waterfall captures your attention.
All 79 rooms and 5 suites in the 9-story high-rise have floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the ocean, 1 king-size bed or 2 double beds facing the ocean, down comforters and pillows, a work table, a mini-bar, an in-room safe, and a custom-designed entertainment center that includes cable TV. The minimalist decor is sleek, with white walls, contemporary furniture, and soft blue lighting. For those staying in a suite, a telescope is provided for stargazing.
Award-winning chef Cesar Fernandez devises Pacific Rim dinner delights at Tangerine, recently included on Conde Nast Traveler's "Hot Tables" list of the most intriguing new restaurants in the world. It is aptly bathed in warm golden hues. The hotel's main bar, Liquid, has a sensuous and clubby atmosphere. Water cascades behind the bar and rippling waves are projected on the walls. Yes, that person you see is a famous actor, model, athlete, or musician. Trendsetters fit right into the futuristic design, with lighted floor tiles and fishtail stools.
Come back in the morning for a continental breakfast. Another evening entertainment option is Wet, the open-air, rooftop lounge with a view of the city below, the curved coastline, and the wide expanse of sea. You will be seduced by the exotic, hand-carved Indonesian decorative items; pillow-covered, white leather beds; pillar candles; and fireplace. Get some sushi next door at the Little Shogun restaurant.
Perhaps you would like to spend some time at the open-air fitness center, on the rooftop sundeck, and in the pool that makes you think you're swimming in the sky. The hotel also is on one of the finest beach in San Juan. For touring historic sites and purchasing paintings, sculptures, and crafts from local artists, head into Old San Juan.
Be part of the see-and-be-seen crowd, and have your expectations exceeded!
