Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
SAN JUAN — Caribe Hilton is officially debuting its US$150 million restoration following a 15-month closure.
The re-opening marks a major milestone as the property celebrates its 70th birthday, and the Hilton marks its 100th anniversary.
General Manager of Caribe Hilton, Pablo Torres says, “The sun is shining, there’s energy and rhythm on the island, and once again our famous piña coladas are flowing. We’re welcoming our return guests back home, as well as introducing new ones to the enduring Caribe Hilton experience and legacy.”
Caribe Hilton, restored by owner Park Hotels and Resorts, delivers contemporary guest room and suite renovations, reimagined F&B concepts, fitness centre, spa, tennis centre, and landscaping re-designs, paired with a 65,000 square ft. indoor and outdoor event space.
“Caribe Hilton was our first hotel to open outside the continental U.S. and the birthplace of the piña colada, and for that reason, has always been an incredibly important hotel for Hilton. It is with great pride that we say ‘welcome back’ or ‘bienvenidos’ to this emblematic property,” says Danny Hughes, Executive Vice President and President, Americas, Hilton. “We are extremely proud of our new product and the resilient Team Members who worked to re-develop a resort worthy of its history. We can’t wait to welcome guests and members of the community back to the hotel.”
To celebrate the opening, for a limited time, guests can extend their stay in paradise an additional night with ‘One Night on Us’, a complimentary third night free deal. Travel must be booked by June 30 for travel between May 15 and Dec. 20.
