San Juan InterContinental Resort & Casino in Isla Verde
Azure water gently washing up on wide open stretches of sandy beach, the sun overhead, palm trees swaying in the breeze, strolling barefoot along the waterline leaving your footprints in the wet sand – this is what a holiday in Puerto Rico is all about. Guests at the InterContinental San Juan Resort & Casino, located on San Juan’s most popular beach, Isla Verde, can be assured of all the elements making up this idyllic scene – and so much more.
The InterContinental San Juan Resort & Casino was designed by the renowned architect Morris Lapidus – a man who made his mark on the world, particularly Miami Beach, with his flamboyant style of architecture, characterized by its sweeping and dramatic curves. This eye-catching hotel, which was extensively renovated in 2007, overlooks the ocean and the picturesque Isla Verde beach.
The hotel has more than 800 guest rooms, suites, single and double bedded rooms, as well as executive suites. Rooms are fitted with cable television, mini refrigerators and coffee makers, with other equipment and services available on demand. The facilities and services available in the resort include a beauty salon, fitness center, gift shop, convenience store and outdoor pool. Services to care for business and other practicalities include foreign currency exchange, wireless internet access and a business center offering copying, courier service, email, internet access, computers, printer and fax.
The resort’s Alfredo Restaurant is a small slice of Italy in Puerto Rico. With genuine Italian cuisine and décor to match, guests can be forgiven for thinking they are in Italy when they dine at Alfredo Restaurant. At this small slice of Italy in Puerto Rico it comes as no surprise that the specialty dish is Fettuccini Alfredo – a rich parmesan cream sauce with a hint of garlic, served over traditional Italian fettuccini. Take a trip to the Far East at Momoyama, where traditional Japanese cuisine is cooked to order at teppanyaki tables – an art of cooking with a 200 year-old history. Watch your chef expertly prepare your meal from a choice of ingredients which typically include beef, shrimp, lobster, scallops and chicken, along with an assortment of vegetables. Or head off to the Mediterranean at Ciao Mediterranean to savor the flavors of Spain, Morocco, Greece and other distinctive Mediterranean cuisine.
Guests enjoying the hotel pool will appreciate the Splash Bar & Grill which features a swim up bar for the convenience of those who are making most of relaxing in the sparkling water. The I Bar offers an unusual selection of tropical cocktails in an atmosphere of elegance, or enjoy a cocktail and some Italian Antipasti at the Ottanta piano bar.
Some of the suggested attractions to visit while staying at the InterContinental San Juan Resort & Casino include historic Old San Juan, El Yunque Rain Forest, Plaza Las Americas Shopping Mall, Bacardi Rum Factory and the Puerto Rico Art Museum. Make the most of your holiday in Puerto Rico!
