One of the island's biggest and best, El San Juan offers unparalleled luxury. Swim up to one of their many tiki bars in the huge pool, or lounge on a chaise on their private beach (where you can order lunch and have it brought to you, if you like). The interior is awash in glowing chandeliers, plush blue and gold velvet chairs, lots of mahogany and Art Deco touches like large fish carved into the main columns. The casino is straight out of a James Bond movie, with good-looking people and maybe a villain or two playing for high stakes. Guestrooms are surprisingly modern, given the colonial feel to the main building, with an all-white motif, and sliding glass doors onto private balconies.
