Caribe Hilton reopens May 15 in Puerto Rico following its more than $100 million restoration. The iconic beach resort’s enhancements include guestroom and suite makeovers, new food and beverage outlets, redesigned social spaces and updated event space.

The historic property was the first Hilton hotel outside the continental United States and is the birthplace of the piña colada. The new designs receive inspiration from San Juan’s lively culture and heritage. The property promises an elevated guest experience.

“The opening of Caribe Hilton in 1949 was a genesis of tourism that introduced travelers to the island of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean,” said Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, the Americas, Hilton. “The revitalization of this emblematic property is a continuation of that genesis, inspiring much anticipation and pride among the Hilton family, locals, guests and all who have an enduring affinity for this cherished San Juan hotel.”

“We are as determined as ever to reimagine the guest experience at Caribe Hilton and are eager to introduce Puerto Rico’s new Icon of Hospitality,” added Pablo Torres, general manager, Caribe Hilton. “We have had the pleasure of creating milestone memories for our local and international guests for nearly 70 years, and now we are ready to welcome travelers and our island family to create new ones.”
