Where Puerto Rico's City and Beach Collide

While a beach resort and a city hotel might seem like they are at odds with one another, the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellairs Casino in Puerto Rico seamlessly combines the two, placing it into a class of its own.

While a beach resort and a city hotel might seem like they are at odds with one another, the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellairs Casino in Puerto Rico seamlessly combines the two, placing it into a class of its own.
With 21 floors, 513 guestrooms, and 12 suites, accommodations are ample and varied. Choose a sea, mountain, or city view–or all three if a penthouse suite is in your budget. Families will appreciate the Ocean Pool View Cabanas for their proximity to the pool, which, the parents will be pleased to know has a heated Jacuzzi and swim-up bar. When you’re ready to hit the beach, join the locals and grab a boogie board in order to ride the Atlantic’s sizeable waves.

Several on-site restaurants and shops, plus a spa and casino keep the need to venture beyond the resort to a minimum. As part of a multi-phase, multi-million dollar overhaul, the resort’s lobby lounge was completely redone to compartmentalize the bar and lounge from the check-in area. Named the Red Coral Lounge after artist Neftali Maldonado’s wooden “Coral Reef” carving that serves as the space’s centerpiece, the lounge makes for a convivial setting for travelers to drink, dine, and dance. Live DJs spin records that will get every foot tapping in the room and the bartenders prove to be a wealth of knowledge on the area’s best restaurants and nightclubs. Afterall, Old San Juan is just a $15 cab ride away, and Condado, the resort’s surrounding neighborhood, boasts a wide array of dining and blue chip shopping.
