Don’t spend the money! Entirely overpriced! If you want to stay in PR, stay somewhere cheaper. You expect luxury when you pay 3k for 5 nights, but i got a 3-star experience. The restaurants are overpriced- better to explore outside the hotel. The beach was crowded. The pool had way too loud of music. We pretty much only were at the hotel 1/4 of our trip because it was so disappointing.
