Expert Review

Set on four hillside acres that descend gracefully to the sea, this 39-suite Spanish-Mediterranean-style inn is Puerto Rico's most luxurious hotel. A quiet lobby sets the tone with antique bird cages containing real birds and ornate 19th-century light fixtures. But the rooms, lavish havens that invite guests to hide out for a few days, are the chief selling point - with enormous marble bathrooms and footed tubs, private gardens (or expansive decks overlooking the sea), and personal plunge pools that are wide and deep. Another plus: The inn's Relais & Chateaux alliance assures fine dining at its esteemed (and très cher) French restaurant. The beach here isn't great, but the pool is a lovely oasis. And although you'll find tennis onsite and other activities nearby, this isn't a place for restless types – the villa suites are notably devoid of distractions (like televisions and phones) that might otherwise disturb your shelter. If you can't live without your electronic toys, book a room in the residence suites, which aren't quite so restrictive.
