This is something you should consider when choosing a destination for vacations. Here we provide you with a list of affordable hotels in San Juan Puerto Rico to consider.

I have written tips to explore Puerto Rico and also, some tips for solo female travelers to Puerto Rico. What can I say new about Puerto Rico this time? I will give you hints on those hotels you should consider if you are looking forward to doing something I have said in the aforementioned guides.

These are hotels close to the landmarks you would like to see on the island since as I have mentioned before, our public transportation is not something you should rely on.

As you might notice in one of the guides, I mentioned a few landmarks such as El Morro and San Cristobal forts, Bacardi Rum Factory, and some other things you might find in San Juan.

One of them might be the amazing tour Flavors of San Juan on which you will be able to explore local food. If you are planning to experience San Juan, I will recommend these 3 hotels if you are looking for a Beach Resort experience:

Caribe Hilton

If you are looking forward to having an amazing beach resort experience in a hotel that is close to almost everywhere but that is not necessarily affordable hotels in San Juan Puerto Rico, Caribe Hilton is your option. Right next to Escambrón and Condado Beach, this hotel offers a lot of amenities to those who stay.

From here, you can walk to Old San Juan and Condado. The hotel is in a vibrant community where you can find restaurants such as Fogo de Chão.

If you are looking for a place next to the beach, but at the same time, not too far from the sightseeing, then this hotel is your option.

  • Rates start at $173 per night.
  • Taxi to Old San Juan should not cost more than $10 and to the airport no more than $20.

Marriott Stellaris Resort

Marriot Stellaris is right in the heart of the Condado Area. The beach is right behind it and it has different landmarks and fun places to visit within walking distance. Condado has a really good restaurant scene which is one of the reasons I would recommend it.

On a good day, you can walk from here to Old San Juan or to the hip area in Calle Loiza, which also has a good local bar scene and different local restaurants and spots you might love to visit.

This hotel as well offers different amenities and is a common place for meetings and conventions.

  • Rates start at $179 per night.
  • A taxi to Old San Juan should cost you $10-$15, taxi to the airport about $15

El San Juan Resort

This resort has a magic of its own and, from my position as a local, is one of my favorite spots in the city. On Friday nights it offers a variety of activities to do. You have there one of the most famous clubs in the city there called Brava or you just can enjoy the show by the band in the Lobby. That is exactly what I usually do.

So definitely, this is one of the hotels I would recommend the most, although I am conscious is not one of the most affordable hotels in San Juan Puerto Rico.

  • Rates start at $175 per night.
  • Taxi to Old San Juan should cost $15-$20 and to the Airport $10.
