We recently had our wedding at Hotel El Convento and I am so thrilled with our decision. Having toured numerous wedding venues, I was disappointed to not be finding exactly what I was looking for. After our first visit we knew right away this is where we wanted to have our wedding. Throughout the process MariOlga Martinez were so incredibly accommodating, super quick with responses, and overall fun/friendly people to work with. Anything we wanted done she figured out a way to make it work. Making selections at our tasting was very difficult because everything was so delicious. We had a ton of guests from out of town and everyone absolutely loved their stay at the hotel. My wedding day could not have been more perfect! Everything ran so smoothly, food was absolutely amazing. So many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they've ever had. Hotel el Convento is truly a treasure with excellent service, delicious food & incredible atmosphere. Trust me, you will not regret having your wedding there! Big Thanks to Gabriel Gualdi, Iwete Santiago, Orville Rodriguez, and off course Mariolga Martinez. I wish I had the names of all the employees that worked the night of my wedding to thank them for such an amazing job they all did! Thanks again to all the employees that make that night awesome.

About

A unique place for weddings, Hotel El Convento is located in the Heart of Old San Juan and has set new standards for luxury, comfort and service; at the same time, preserving its rich and historic value. Just across the street from the San Juan Bautista Cathedral and walking distance from Castillo San Felipe del Morro, it is the perfect scenery for unforgettable pictures and magical memories. Hotel El Convento is the only member in Puerto Rico of “Small Luxury Hotels of the World” and the oldest member of “Historic Hotels of America”. 

Hotel El Convento has different spaces to make your wedding day just what you always thought it would be like:

Salon Campeche has a maximum capacity of 200 guests for sit-down dinner. Its biggest attributes include: marble black and white floor, majestic 50-foot vault ceiling, a colorful mural and antique stained glass windows.

Salon Martorell was designed by Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell and it is a gem of his art and creativity. In this salon he developed the theme “Las Monjas Letradas” or “Nuns and Letters”, thus honoring those emblematic of both faith and literature in the Spanish Language. This salon has a maximum capacity of 40 guests for sit-down dinner; perfect for intimate dinners or cocktails.

The interior courtyard is the perfect location for ceremonies and cocktails. It is surrounded by tropical foliage and a 100-year old Nispero tree. During the day is the hotel’s main restaurant, but in the afternoons it is transformed into to the most magical place in Old San Juan.

The catering department offers personalized attention to every detail of your wedding; from food and beverage to entertainment, décor and cake.

We were delighted with our experience at El Convento. From the customer service to the food, everything was perfect! When we visited 6 months before our wedding, Ely showed us around and made our tasting experience amazing. We had no reservations about the food or service our guests would receive. During the week of our wedding, they were extremely accommodating. They even upgraded us to the Presidential Suite, which was an amazing experience and facilitated some exceptional getting-ready photos. The Martorell Room, which we used for our reception, is a one of a kind masterpiece. Painted and decorated by a renowned Puerto Rican artist, the room needs only minimal décor and every photo looked amazing.

What can I say... our wedding was perfect in every single way. After the hurricane, we were worried that our dream wedding day was no longer a reality. I'm originally from Puerto Rico and the thought of doing the wedding anywhere else broke my heart. The team at El Convento, and particularly Fabiola, went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding would turn out exactly as we had originally planned. When I think back to my wedding day, not a single thing was wrong. The food was perfect, the venue looked amazing, and the service above and beyond. The food was delicious and all of our guests were raving about the sancocho. Drinks were plentiful. Fabiola was there to comfort me every step of the way. Thank you, El Convento wedding team for making all of our dreams come true. If we could do our wedding again, we would go back to El Convento in a heartbeat. Lots of love, Carolyn & Peter
