El San Juan
Hotel & Casino’s
Isla Verde is home to
some of Puerto Rico’s most elegant resort hotels. Chief among these
is the 382-room El San Juan Hotel & Casino, which just wrapped
up a $52 million revamp. Upon entering the lobby, one is struck by
the juxtaposition of dark carved wood and colorful, modern
furnishings -- not to mention the hulking Czech chandelier.
Guest rooms match the techno beat that
pervades the hotel: They are mostly white and Lucite, with ceramic
tile floors and flat-screen TVs. Outdoors, a labyrinthine pool area
(with a number of nooks for relaxing) winds its way to the beach.
The El San Juan has 35,000 square feet of meeting space.
