Was horrible- no service since we got into our cabana. We had to go to bar to order and then we’re told my minimum wasn’t met at the cabana. How can I meet a minimum of no one served me???! Eduardo and rueben were the two people who attempted to help but still nothing. I hope I don’t get charged for this cabana considering this was not a luxury experience. Save your money people.

The place is beautiful but no one seems to know whah they’re doing. When we arrived for our reservation we asked if we could leave our luggage at the bell hop desk because we made the reservation for beach chairs + umbrella to spend our last few hours in San Juan before catching our flight back home. The bell hops were rude and gave the front desk lady a hard time about us leaving our luggage there. When we went to get our beach chairs they told us they didn't have them available and ready for us, so whats the point of a reservation? They asked us to wait by the pool and said they would come get us once our chairs+Umbrella were ready and they never did. The bar food is very basic and the drinks were so expensive with not enough liquor in them. We still made the best of it and enjoyed our last day there. Dont book the beach chairs if anything go for the cabanas which are nicer and appeared to be more available.

we stayed at the El San Juan hotel and rented a pool cabana on sunday, we had GRAND3 cabana and what an awesome day we had, it was so much fun, we were taken very good care of, food and drinks were flowing all day, we loved having our private cabana, day beds and pool, it was the best day

For starters, the lounge cushions need to be replaced. While the service was slow the wait staff was friendly enough. The food was average. The only reason to recommend a cabana is due to the fact you most likely won't be able to find and poolside chairs.

I only gave one star because you don't have a no-star review. We were in Puerto Rico for a wedding. I thought to rent a large cabana and have people stop by to eat, drink and chill ... Sounded like a great idea at the time .. they only have 4 grand cabanas and you figure they know these are the folks who plan on spending money. It was so bad we just walked away from it! They took our drink order one time .. it took an hour and that was all the service we received. I ordered a hamburger 3 times, talked to the people with the walkie talkies a few times .. no one came by... Some kid came out to apologize, but I wasn't here for his apology .. I wanted a beer! it never came.... We went to the other pool, to eat and drink. The speakers are on both sides of the cabana ... There is no way to have any kind of conversation, it was super loud. I was looking forward to a great time... what I got was a headache, hunger pains and frustration. will not repeat and would never recommend.

Service was slow, the waitress may have fed my girlfriend gluten when she is gluten intolerant, and the cabana boys were lingering around us and starting unnecessary small talk. This creeped out my girlfriend, and it was especially bad when they started cleaning up in our cabana when we were sleeping. This wouldn’t be that bad if they cleaned when we were awake, but they only did it when we were sleeping, which was strange.

I wasn't aware that even though my reservation was for three people that I'd only get a space with two lounge chairs. Also, the drinks are extremely over priced starting at $17 per drink.

The hotel had a deejay come and they turned on music that was so loud and obnoxious, my husband and I couldn't hear each other talk sitting side by side. We had to yell to hear each other and the servers who came to take our food order. We asked if they could turn it down but the staff said they had no control over it. The music was so loud, we couldn't even go on the beach to get away from it. They were apologetic and didn't hesitate to accept our request for a refund at least. We had already ordered food and took it to go. It wasn't that great and it was very expensive. We got the appetizer sampler and 2 drinks. That was the first time I haven't been impressed with a pina colada in Puerto Rico.

When booking it said adults only, but that was fake news. Also, the “dj” was equivalent to playing a throwback freestyle radio station. The vibe was low. A two person daybed wasn’t overly expensive but, thank in comparison with the vibe it might be a little over priced. If you have a good group you’ll be fine, if not, seek another party

We arrived for our 5pm reservation and were told they were not accepting the reservations booked that day. After going back and forth with them for 20 minutes, they said it was a mistake and the hotel would honor the reservation. Once we arrived at the cabana check-in we were told they did not have a cabana to honor our reservation, and we would have to squeeze into two smaller cabanas until they could figure something out. 40 minutes later...I’m arguing with them about giving us the cabana we purchased, and they start saying food service has ended so we won’t have a server nor the ability to purchase food and drinks if we do eventually get the cabana they promised us via the reservation. At this point it’s 6pm and we still don’t have a cabana for our 5pm reservation. Finally I tell them I’m ready to spend $1,000 and magically a cabana is produced (dirty) that they clean up while we stand and wait. Then about 20-25 minutes later, a server appears. It was the absolute worst experience ever. Do not book here. Ever.

do not.make reservations for the morning. We reserved a beach/pool cabana for 10am. Food and drinks service starts at 12pm. They showed up at 1pm.
You should bring your own food and drinks.

We reserved a Beach Bed Pool for the day at El San Juan via Open Table.
It was a horrible experience with the hotel part. (Not open table) when we arrived to the hotel for our “beach day” “exclusive experience” It turned to bed a complete headache. The crew there had no idea what we had PAID FOR of where to direct us. We ended up with something different and just a chaos.

Not recommend!
