Overlooking Isla Verde Beach, El San Juan Resort and Casino blends natural beauty and Old-World sophistication. With its antique chandeliers and carved-mahogany ceiling, the lobby sets the tone; the 386 guest rooms follow suit with minimalist design highlighted by bleached wood, white furnishings, and warm accents. While most head to El San Juan for its rich history and perfect beaches, this resort ups the ante. Nine gourmet restaurants serve a wide range of choices, from Southern-style barbecue to sushi and teppanyaki. The expansive Encanto Pool Complex includes waterfalls, swim-up bars, private cabanas, and a poolside concierge. Come nightfall, the 13,000-square-foot casino with European-styled crystal chandeliers and tuxedo-clad staff is where guests flock to see and be seen.
