... PR to meet the Otero family. Lots of drinking including a pitorro shots. Lots of food, lots of salsa dancing, and laughs.
April 1: Yari and I went to Old San Juan to eat at El Hamburguer. We went to find Nathan a present at Old San Juan. Enjoyed the beauty parts of Old San Juan. Later at night, we relaxed at the parent's house with family. Margarita made a nice dinner.
April 2: We went back to Austin, TX. No Delays.
... there were way too many people in this bay and there was too much light pollution. There is another bio bay on the island of Viejes - I hear that's a better place to do the bio bay but unfortunately I didn't have enough days in SJ to go there. I returned to the hostel and watched a movie.
The next day was Sunday. I didn't have much planned this day so I just decided to walk around SJ. ...
The ride back to San Juan was relatively short and un-eventful. Before finding the new apartment we went to a grocery store for supplies. The price of food was incredibly high in the store, almost double what we pay in Cali. We were in a touristy area, but I was shocked to find items like lettuce costing over $4 a head. It made me wonder how people afforded to live there when a majority of Puerto Ricans barely made an average of $18,000 annually, living at ...
... incredibly nice.
Leslie and I enjoyed a Spanish Tempranillo wine, something we had not had since we lived in Madrid. Hillary had a white wine and Tyler had a Mahou beer. We did not have lunch, just some tapas. We started with some Manchego cheese. Tyler had a bowl of Gazpacho. Leslie and Hillary had lamb chops. I settled on Sopa del Lintejos, a very good bean soup. We felt so at home!
After leaving ...
... again on Copa Airlines to San Juan in Puerto Rico. Lunch is a 4" cold pizza, a packet of tacos and a packet of orrios and water! Ok today was day one of intensive diet for 8 days in PR before sailing cruise, so lunch option was not a great start to temple being re opened. We land at San Juan International airport and it is clear and warm at 32 degrees, we like this place and spare a thought for our friends in the UK! We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree by Hilton San Juan
We decided to overnight in San Juan before heading to the British Virgin Islands the next morning. We wanted a hotel located close to the airport, clean and safe. We needed dinner and a good night's sleep. The hotel Pierre is easy to get to from the airport, about 10 - 15 minutes and $13.50 each way. We arrived on a Sunday, so the huge construction project located directly adjacent to the hotel was quiet. Bebo's Restaurant or the Patisserie Restaurant are within walking distance. We looked at both. We ate at the Patisserie. It was just fine.
The ideal getaway hotel
I spent 4 nights at the best western hotel in december 2004 and loved it. It is the perfect getaway for anyone. The staff is friendly and the rooms are fresh and clean. keep up the good works.
I went to the island very unexpectedly. Picked the first hotel I came upon on the internet. Got to the front desk very tired and it was almost 1 a.m. I was welcomed with a fresh and smiling face. I was checked in to room #2004. I noticed it was very clean and well kept. During my stay I needed the assistance of the staff for directions, restaurants and car rentals. I felt they went the extra mile to give accurate and helpfull information for all my questions. Other than the fact that it is a very good, clean, centrally located and in a safe neighborhood hotel. I will continue to stay at The Best Western Hotel Pierre mostly because of the friendly and helpful staff.
I was hesitant to stay here considering some of the bad reviews, but I didn't have a choice since the room was arranged for me. "How bad can it be?" It... is bad.
It was 95% great :)
I stayed here for about 2 weeks. I got the 8th floor which was good cuz the elevator was temp out of service...except to the 8th floor. we got a free breakfast everymorning by 9:30..breads, danishes, oj, cereal, nothing too healthy but good. the room's AC was excellent and the room itself was like your typical hotel room. my only complaint was that one of the maids put my used towels back on the rack which was sort of upsetting. the bellboys were helpful (and attractive!) the beach is a 3 min walk away, and the airport is a 10 min drive (about $14-15). i got a great deal since i stayed for so long, and i really enjoyed staying there!
Don't bother with the Pierre
I travel to San Juan often and have stayed in some real gems, (most notably the Radisson Ambasador) But the Pierre was a nightmare. First impression was great, marble lobby with a grand piano, very nice woman at the front desk offered to upgrade our room for free, if that was the upgrade I don't want to see the standard room, the furniture looked as if it had been bought at a yard sale, it was painted with black enamel with big brush marks and chips and you could read through the towels, non functioning Elevators the second day and had to walk up to 8th floor room for over 24 hours with no apology from management. So thumbs down on the Pierre
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Best Western Pierre for 5 nights in Santurce, PR- we visited during the 'low season'- so the prices were very reasonable- an average of $140.00/night (excluding 'govt tax= $13.86; and 'hotel tariff= $14.00)- so the overall total can be a little overwhelming at first- but it was really a good deal compared to other hotels for $50-$100 more/night. We reserved our room through a discount website.
What a GREAT HOTEL!
We checked in at this Hotel on Feb 12,2004 & Checked out on Feb 14th & our stay could not have been BETTER! The Desk Staff were very Professional & Friendly & Our Room (room 818) was Just Beautiful....
over looking the pool & Hot tub & a view of the Ocean! Everything was like Clockwork with this Hotel & I would Recommend this property to anyone. Thank You Best Western!
The other people who posted reviews on this hotel must have very low standards. This hotel is over-priced and poorly maintained and managed.
I had spent several months reading reviews on various hotel in the San Juan area. It was really difficult making a decision since the were great reviews and horrible reviews on the same hotel. To make matters worse the pics on the hotel websites were all great. I made my decision since there were no reviews posted on this particular hotel and the was a really great special (30% off). The lobby is beautifully decorated showing the hotels great service and the importance of one'[s stay there. The rooms were comfortable and very nicely decorated, a safe is located in each closet and we felt very comfortable in leaving our valuables when going to the beach. The pool was great after a hot day of site seeing and the Jacuzzi was my husbands favorite. I loved the way the sorroundings were decorated it made for a very beautiful hotel.
