Really a great place to stay. Pool area was nice one down side drinks are pretty pricey I understand you have to make a profit but $25.00 for a margarita is a bit much. Rooms were nice and bed was very comfy. Staff was great.

Everything on the property was great, from staff to food. The only disappointment was the particular room location we had above the STK restaurant. The noise level from the music was similar to a dance club rather than a high-end steakhouse. Room 271 should only be used if the hotel is fully booked. The management of STK Steakhouse needs to decide if they are a nightclub or a restaurant. Check the reviews of customers complaining about the music level and rude management. Overall the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel is an excellent hotel with great food, rooms and especially staff. Keep up the great work.

This is second review as the first was not published . Be prepared to pay a substantial amount in addition to what you paid online. The resort fee of 75.00 a day is a bit much and tack on the 30.00 for parking. be prepared to show covid card and having to wear a mask. Room 563 was very dirty with stains on chairs that looked like human feces , ripped carpet, stains on upholstery of the left side of the bed, stains on carpets, air vent very dirty. Informed front staff, was given a 150.00 credit and a cheap bottle of champagne lol . Breakfast was good but way over priced. Local eatery pannes down the street was better and prices were fair. Hotel lacks the Puerto Rican flair, the bar was tacos and tequila , no PR a food on-site . On weekends there is a different crowd. Not the exclusive resort I was hoping for. I will not be returning.

Pros’s .. the view as you come in is spectacular , great location, close proximity to offsite Puerto Rican restaurants, beach, pools, close to old San Juan, valet parking (call 10 min before departure and they will have car waiting) you need key card for elevator which is a good extra security. I discussed room cleanliness issues and showed pictures to front staff. I was given a 150 resort credit and a bottle of 8.00 Champaign . Front End staff, valet were very nice. Ate breakfast on site 1 time in 6 days. Food was good but way over priced! You are better off eating at a restaurant called PANNES about 3 blocks away for authentic island breakfast. Cons… room was not 5 star. high taxes to pay at hotel, 30.00 nightly parking, 75.00 a day resort tax, stayed in room 553 and it seemed dirty, stains on chairs, side of bed, carpet ripped, rusted toilet paper holder, stains on carpet. On weekend it seemed to get a certain unruly crowd and more of a party vibe. Has lost its charm and class. Doorman too busy checking vaccine cards and not able to open door for other guests. As a native Puertorican, I did not feel this hotel had an island flair. No Puertorican food or desserts really on site. They had a tacos and tequila bar lol 51.00 for a can of sprite, 2 drinks and some hard round chips and black bean dip lol how about some rum and mofongo?????it’s Puerto Rico not Mexico . Out of touch with island. Will not be staying here again, you do not get what you pay for.
