Here, stylish, newly renovated guest rooms and suites offer a warm Puerto Rico welcome after a day of sun, sand and surf or lounging by the palm-fringed freeform pool. Kids love our water spray park, and creature comforts for furry friends include pet beds and an outdoor pet park with an agility course where they can romp off the leash.
