Fairmont El San Juan Hotel is the new name of the El San Juan Hotel as it has officially joined Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. It is the first Fairmont and Accor property in Puerto Rico.
The hotel is set on Isla Verde Beach, minutes away from Old San Juan, the downtown San Juan area and Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport. The hotel has 388 guestrooms, suites, and poolside and oceanfront villas; a Well & Being Spa and fitness center; four pools with swim-up bar and luxury cabanas; pro-level tennis court; watersport rentals including jet skis, banana boats and parasailing; plus 11 food and beverage venues.
The resort officially opened its doors on Feb. 1, 1958, as El San Juan Hotel. By the 1960s, the hotel became one of the island’s most visited destinations. The hotel reopened in December 2018 following a $65 million restoration led by designer Jeffrey Beers.
“As the newest member of the Fairmont family, Fairmont El San Juan Hotel is writing the next chapter in a narrative that extends back more than 100 years, with iconic hotels, unrivalled presence, authentic experiences and unforgettable moments, which have attracted visitors to Fairmont and its destinations since 1907,” said Heather McCrory, CEO, North & Central America, Accor, in a statement. “Fairmont El San Juan is not just the newest Fairmont, but also a landmark in Puerto Rico. Everyone has a story about El San Juan Hotel, a special moment shared within these walls and on these grounds. It is this legacy that unquestionably makes this hotel a Fairmont, and which makes an indelible imprint on this vibrant, dynamic destination. This milestone marks the beginning of our exciting journey together, and another step in a period of tremendous growth for Accor in North & Central America.”
