Travelers will find the Embassy Suites El San Juan’s location supreme as it is just a two block jaunt to the ever popular Isla Verde Beach.
The near beach location coupled with overnight rates starting at $179 per night and expertly appointed, spacious guest rooms makes the Embassy Suites El San Juan a true bargain.
In-room amenities include a pair of plasma screen televisions, wet bar, coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave.
Sadly, when it comes to dining options, travelers that are looking for indigenous Island fare will need to look elsewhere.
A bit on the pedestrian side, the hotel’s dining options include an Outback Steakhouse and an Atrium Café that features such fare as Noble Roman’s Pizza and Nathan’s Hot Dogs.
The Atrium Café opens at 11:00 am and closes at 11:00 pm during the week and at 1:00 am on the weekends. The Outback Steakhouse is open from 5:00 pm until 10:30 pm Monday through Thursday, Friday and Saturday until midnight and on Sunday from 3:00 pm until 10:00 pm.
On the positive side, the hotel does offer up both the Coqui Pool Bar and Waterfall Lounge as consolation prizes for those hoping to at least enjoy a tropical cocktail adorned with a perfunctory paper umbrella on premise.
Travelers may expect the tropical drinks at either bar to cost anywhere from $7 to $8 a glass. There is also a smattering of typical bar food available as well. Items like chicken wings, nachos and a four appetizer sampler platter traditionally costs anywhere from $13 to $15 a plate.
The Coqui Pool Bar is open daily from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm whereas the Waterfall Lounge is open daily from 12:30 pm until 2:00 am.
A complimentary full breakfast is offered daily as is a nightly Manager’s Reception.
Other hotel amenities include an al fresco lagoon pool for the adults, a wading pool for the children and a fitness center for those travelers looking to get their exercise on.
The 7,800 square foot casino at the Embassy Suites El San Juan is open daily, year round, from 10:00 am until 4:00 am. It does close on some religious holidays like Good Friday.
Furthermore, it is also imperative to note that although the casino opens at 10:00 am, the table games are not operationally until noon.
In addition, the casino has been designated a non-smoking facility so smokers beware!
In total the Embassy Suites San Juan casino boasts 275 slot machines and 14 gaming tables that include such gaming options as Caribbean Stud, Blackjack and Roulette.
Live entertainment is presented nightly from Thursday through Sunday and there is a full bar available.
Advance reservations for the Embassy Suites El San Juan may be made either by phone or online.
