Best Hotels in Puerto Rico
No. 2 Ritz-Carlton, San Juan Hotel, Spa & Casino, Puerto Rico
Cloaked in marble, crystal, dark woods, brocade fabrics, and gilded moldings, the 416-room Ritz is easily San Juan's most opulent resort. The property, set on eight beachfront acres, is approached from a long, circular drive, where guests are immediately met by crisp valets and whisked up to their large, plush rooms (all overlook either landscaped gardens or a pretty swimming beach). Among the resort's amenities are two fabulous restaurants—New York outposts of BLT Steak and Il Mulino—as well as the Island's most glamorous casino and a 12,000-square-foot spa offering treatments like papaya-and-mango facials.
