My husband and I finished off our 8 day Puerto Rico island adventure celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary by staying the last 2 nights in Ild San Juan at the Villa Herencia. We knew we didn't want to simply tour Old San Juan, we wanted to immerse ourselves & get the complete experience so we researched & examined EVERY SINGLE hotel/B&B in Old San Juan for weeks- we couldn't have found a better place to stay! A month in advance, we phoned the staff for advice since we would have a rental car for the beginning of our trip to the island (and I am a bit OCD about making sure I know EXACTLY what to expect & to plan). Not only did they help us tremendously by suggesting to return the rental car PRIOR to coming into Old San Juan then taxiing to hotel, but they gave us wonderful tips & advice regarding many other aspects of our adventure and arranged taxi service for us at the end of our stay. Once in Old San Juan, we were greeted by the most friendly & helpful staff! The Villa Herencia is the most beautiful, charming, place we have ever stayed! We had an upstairs room and were a bit unsure after reading a review regarding steps & cats- but neither were an issue & so glad we didn't let that review keep us from staying here! Our room was perfect and we had the gorgeous rooftop patio to ourselves in the evenings (as there are only a total of 8 rooms in the entire place). Breakfast was just right to get us started each day, we walked to everything and thanks to the staff we experienced our favorite spot....The Passage Of The Princess. You HAVE to take a stroll there at night. If it had not been suggested to us, we would have never even known it was there & it begins right behind the hotel.
We are already planning out return trip & will be bringing our family this time. The Villa Herencia is where we will stay & have already recommended it to several friends.
