Amazing experience at Hotel El Convento with Tary
Tary greeted my family and I with a great, bright smile. I immediately felt welcomed and as if I were talking to a long time friend. She is extremely professional and prepared. She shared exactly where my cocktail hour and reception will be. She gave me examples with photos from past events on her iPad and a plan B if it rained. I could tell that Tary loves her job and that it is her passion. I knew before our meeting was over, that this was the place to hold my dream wedding.Sent on 09/08/2019

So Happy We Chose Hotel El Convento
Hotel El Convento is undeniably a beautiful hotel. The understated take of Spanish Rococo decor from the converted 17th century convent, the beautiful courtyard (where we had our ceremony), the comfortable and impressive suits (where I got ready and we stayed after the wedding), and the impressive Salon Campeche and Salon Oller banqueting rooms (where we had the reception and dinner). It all made our wedding experience unforgettable and gorgeous. Having said that, the staff (catering, sales, and reception) went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met. They worked closely with the coordinating/decorating staff and made the set-up and take down seamless. The food and desserts were Michelin star quality. The staff during the wedding were attentive, polite, and efficient. They helped with the room block for our guests and everyone had a great experience. Every detail exceeded expectations. Definitely put it on your list of wedding venues to consider.Sent on 11/09/2019

Beautiful Venue with a lot to Offer
Hotel El Convento is in the heart of Old San juan and is part of the beautiful, historical architecture in the city. The location isn’t the reason I had my wedding here though, the Salon Campeche was, but I am so happy because the location itself made my ceremony at La Rogativa so magical. I walked at least 200 meters down the old cobblestone street to my husband and it was nothing short of a fairytale. The reception area (Salon Campeche) was also a MAJOR influence to our theme, Tim Burton. It is the most beautiful room with high ceilings and a checkered ballroom floor with a grand stage. Ely was our coordinator and she was very professional and kind throughout the entire process. She was very patient with our requests and changes and the food was PERFECT. The greatest part about the food was that during the tasting we could request changes to the recipes to make things more palatable to our liking with no problem at all. They were open to suggestions and accommodating to us and I know I couldn’t have found this hospitality or customer service anywhere else. I didn’t feel like a customer or number to them, I felt like my day was really important to Ely and the hotel. They even provided extra banquet personnel and an assistant, Caroline, for myself. That was a surprise because I already expected my bridesmaids to help me with some things but Caroline was there for all of it! She was fantastic. Hotel El Convento was hands down the best venue for the best experience I could have ever asked for.Sent on 11/12/2019
