Deal of the Week: La Concha, Puerto Rico
I’m taking a break from the ongoing coverage from Cartagena because, with Valentine’s Day coming up before we know it, I thought it might be a good time to highlight a good deal at an excellent hotel: La Concha, a Renaissance Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The property is offering an “Escape! Romance” package, priced at $302 and up per night, that includes daily breakfast at the full buffet, plus a bottle of sparkling wine in your room.
I’ve stayed at this property and it’s one of my absolute favorites in San Juan, thanks to the great style with which they’ve brought new life to a 1950s Tropical Modern architectural landmark. Set in the heart of the exciting Condado district, the property sits right on the beach and has a lobby bar that is one of the places for San Juan’s young and beautiful set. The resort is a high-profile anchor in the recent comeback in the neighborhood called Condado.
