Ms. W. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Where do I begin? Well, I'll start by stating that I love the Fairmont brand overall. This Fairmont location; however, has been the worst hotel I have stayed in this century if not last too. As is my custom, I booked directly with the property. I also reached out to concierge who assisted me greatly prior to my arrival and during my stay. Natalia and Melissa provided excellent dining recommendations and they did a lot of research to find particular excursions for me and amy guest. They are the ONLY reason I didn't rank this review a 1. They deserve a star of their own. The other staff...can go somewhere. I have never and will never again stay at another Fairmont outside the continental US until I have assurances that it is nothing like Fairmont El San Juan.

I upgraded my room on the day of arrival and the room smelled like weed and was dirty. I called the office and asked to move the following morning since it was late when I checked in from a late flight. I told the staff and they said nothing and just moved my room to my original reservation.

Good stay!

Overall a good experience! The resort is well located very close to the airport and just a short cab ride to Old San Juan. Beach and pool were nice, towel service was awesome, beach chairs were old and on the verge of breaking so would be nice to have newer chairs. Overall service from staff was great and it was easy to find my way around the resort. Food at the Meat Market and at Il Sole Pizzeria could have been better, the fish at the Meat Market was overcooked (I know, shame on me for ordering fish at a steak house!), and the lobster ravioli at the pizza restaurant could have contained a little more lobster, especially for the price paid. My only complaint was loud music that went until ~1:00am on Friday night! Other than that I would return to this resort.

One of the best hotel stays in my travels!

From the moment I arrived, everyone at the Fairmount was a pleasure to meet and made my stay pleasurable! The hotel room itself was very spacious and up-to-date. The staff was very helpful and ensured all my needs were met to the highest standards. I definitely will keep the Fairmount top of mind for hotel selection when traveling to Puerto Rico again.

Location is great. Amenities is also great. Would be a 10 but front desk people are slow and rude. No issues with anyone else. Just the front desk.

Stay was ok

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Edwin P. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Stay was ok, person who helped me with check in was in a bad mood and didn’t seem like a person that should be in front desk. There was a discrepancy with the price and she didn’t handle it well. She was very pushy to prove her point and win an argument, instead of being emphatic and trying to understand how I felt. Made me feel very bad. I did not leave the hotel because I had somw collegues that had already checked in. Also, the room I was giving had a strong prefume smell and a backgroung odor of smoke. It seemed they were trying to mask a smoke odor with a heavy perfume or chemical.

The food and service was not good

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Grace L. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was better than average and spacious. The Internet connection was interrupted on several occasions and the TV programs froze a lot of times. The service was not good overall. There were 3 or 4 employees that were very nice but the rest of the employees were not nice and were rough when answering questions or giving information. That includes the servers in the convention, some employees at the brunch location near the pool, and a couple of waitresses at the casino. The breakfast menu of the convention was acceptable but the first lunch was not good. The chicken was raw in some parts and the cassava mash was not good. It was not a good choice for the visitors. I am Puerto Rican and the people around me did not eat the food. Ah, and the salad did not have dressing. The next day the food (that was mostly local food) was quite good. I live in Puerto Rico and was surprised by the treatment because in Puerto Rico I am used to being treated very nicely most of the time.

The room was very poorly lit and the bathroom was way to small! When I called room service or the front desk the phone was busy for a long period of time. The food I ordered from Room Service was terrible !!

Cozy stay!
