he upcoming property-wide transformation, slated for full completion in early 2017, will include renovations to the guestrooms, pool area, meeting and entertainment spaces, F&B venues, as well as spa and fitness facilities.
“El San Juan is truly a one-of-a-kind property that we look forward to revitalizing. The updates will pay homage to the historical status of this property as an iconic luxury lifestyle and entertainment resort, while incorporating a playfully elegant feeling to the modernized setting,” said Andro Nodarse-León of León Mayer & Co., one of the owners and asset manager of the resort.
The property, which opened in 1957 and was originally designed by Morris Lapidus and Max Borges, is a landmark 387-room hotel overlooking two miles of beach in the Isla Verde district of Puerto Rico. The property features an 11,000-sq.-ft. grand ballroom space, three pools, nine restaurants, 15 bars, a nightclub, a 7,500-sq.-ft. casino and 12 acres on Isla Verde Beach. Located two miles from the international airport, the property is situated in a neighborhood known for its beaches, eclectic restaurants and bars.
