San Juan’s Condado Plaza Hilton Helps LGBT Newlyweds Celebrate First Wedding Anniversary
July 20, 2016
Situated on a gorgeous stretch of beachfront near historic Old San Juan, in the fashionable Condado neighborhood, the Condado Plaza Hilton (999 Ashford Ave., San Juan, PR, 787-721-1000) has rolled out a fabulous new package for LGBT couples looking to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in style.
Valid for travelers planning a stay through June 2017, the “Coloring San Juan With Love” package offers a way for LGBT couples who married following the monumental SCOTUS ruling last June to enjoy themselves in this gay-friendly Caribbean city. The hotel lies on one of Puerto Rico’s prime sandy beaches, which is lapped by turquoise seas. Of course, this is a great deal for any same-sex pairs seeking a romantic celebration.
Built in the early 1960s in the mid-century style, the 571-unit resort abounds with cushy amenities. You’ll find nine restaurants and bars, a 24-hour fitness center, pools and beachfront, bike rentals, a tennis court, and an artificial reef with swimming and diving. The property enjoys a picturesque setting on a narrow stretch of land near the bridge to Old San Juan. Furthermore, it’s just a short drive or cab ride from downtown San Juan’s hottest gay clubs.
The “Coloring San Juan With Love” LGBT anniversary package starts at $275 nightly (three-night minimum stay required). Guests must book 14 days or more in advance. It includes welcome cocktails at Eternal Lounge, full breakfast for two each morning at Cafe Caribe, turn-down service, and an elaborate five-course tasting menu dinner with wine pairing at the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant, Pikayo, which is helmed by celebrity chef Wilo Benet.
Additionally, guests who book this package receive a detailed San Juan LGBT itinerary, written by me, suggesting tips and advice on how to enjoy the perfect gay weekend in this dynamic city.
