I’m still dreaming of our vacation to Puerto Rico. I loved it because it served so many purposes: a celebration, vacation, and most importantly, a romantic getaway. It has literally been almost 5 years since we’ve taken a vacation alone. That’s crazy, right? So I knew that a romantic getaway was well overdue and exactly what I wanted for my graduation present. Our stay at the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino was perfect! Not only was it close to everything, but it was on the beach and the staff were super friendly. We even had a favorite concierge with the best recommendations.
Check-in was quick and easy. That is always a must for me because when you’re on vacation, everything should be a breeze. When we got up to our room, we were greeted with the loveliest fruit, cheese, and wine tray. Isn’t that just the greatest way to kick off a romantic getaway? Yes, yes it is.
And if that wasn’t enough, the view from our ocean view room was absolutely breathtaking. The moment I stepped foot into the hotel, I knew I was in paradise. The view definitely made me feel like I had found my home away from home. A huge plus of the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino is the location. Located on Ashford Avenue in Condado Plaza, the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino is in the middle of everything. There are so many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Oh, and let’s not forget that the hotel is on the beach so there’s no need to travel.
Our room was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a comfier bed and a better setup. I’m a sucker for room cleanliness and our room was a 10. Completely spotless and beautiful!
The San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino has 8 different room options with rates starting at $199/night. Each room has a balcony which is perfect for soaking up the Puerto Rican air and amazing view. The resort has a fitness center, pool, casino, and of course a spa. I’ve always been too cheap to gamble but since I was on vacation, I decided that I would live a little and try my luck in the casino. It was great being able to try something that I usually wouldn’t do at home. I had no clue what I was doing but luckily the resort offers free casino gaming lessons on certain days.
My absolute favorite thing about our stay was that so many things were included with the resort fee that we paid including in room coffee and tea, WiFi, 2 welcome drinks, 4 daily bottles of water in your mini fridge, complimentary bottled water in the fitness center and reception area, beach and umbrella chairs, 2 hour bike rental, 1 hour use of the tennis court, and 10% off of the featured tour of the day. They even give you the option to rent a GoPro (free of charge) for the day.
I haven’t been to a hotel yet that includes so many things in their resort fee. Nowadays, most places charge you for even the simple things like WiFi. And we all know that I can’t survive without WiFi! Overall, the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino was the perfect place for our romantic getaway. We took late night walks on the beach, relaxed in the jacuzzi, and ate breakfast by the pool. I couldn’t have pictured our vacation any differently. We will definitely be back again for a longer stay. 3 days just weren’t enough. The next time we visit, we’ll be bringing Tatiana for the perfect family vacation.
