The 388-room property opened in 1958, and was a hotspot for entertainers of the time. Jeffrey Beers, founder and CEO of JBI, says his only directive was “to bring the El San Juan back. This hotel was the epicenter of San Juan for a long time, and we wanted to add a new chapter to its glorious history in an artistic way.” Local artists and craftsmen were key to this new look. In the dramatic lobby, the original stone flooring and ornate millwork ceilings were preserved. The villas are a highlight for as they truly express the location and its nature.
“Another old-world stunner has been brought back to life at Isla Verde, one of the world’s most lauded beaches.”
“The revitalized El San Juan is a private enclave where two opposites coexist seamlessly; the old & new, day & night, enveloped in beautiful historical details.”
