    Absolutely a dream!

    I cannot express how much I loved having our wedding here. I 1000% recommend Hotel El Convento for your wedding venue. The hotel was incredible, the food was amazing, the ceremony and reception areas were more beautiful than I could have imagined. I loved the whole team there and I enjoyed every moment planning the wedding with the team. At any point in which I was feeling stressed out, I would speak with the team and I would feel calm again. They are very professional, welcoming, and also, Nelia is absolutely the best!

    When vendors become family

    Everything we wanted and more. Fabiola and her team make your dreams come true.
    She was my first phone call after we got engaged, we booked the venue 18 months in advance because we knew that we wanted to get married in El Convento. Fabiola helped us book the ceremony site, Plaza La Rogativa, and helped us manage the nuances to that as well (something that she absolutely did not have to do). Our reception was in Salon Martorell. As a destination wedding for us, Fabiola guided us every step of the way. Fabiola and the rest of the staff became family to us over the 18 months that we planned, visited, called and emailed. On the weekend of our wedding, every single staff member helped our guests feel like family, and for that we are so eternally grateful. Over the entire planning process, we visited three times (one year out, three months out, and the wedding weekend).
    Fabiola and the rest of the team were nothing short of perfection. Extremely talented, personable, responsive, supportive.
    When we were choosing a venue, we choose it for the superficial aspects (beauty, location, etc). We didn't realize that we would end up loving the people more.
    See you next year, Fabiola! Blake and I are coming for you.

    Hotel El Convento's reply:

    My dear Kim! Congratulations again and thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure to host you and your guests! We hope to have you at your home in Old San Juan very soon! I'll be definitely waiting for you and Blake :)
    Many hugs!

    Nothing short of magic

    I'm not sure where to even start. El Convento was my dream wedding venue for its beautiful, historic charm. But I was absolutely blown away by Fabiola and the whole El Convento team throughout the almost two years of planning. From working closely with us to make sure we could keep things within budget, to our change of date (thanks COVID) was as easy and painless as it could be, to choosing the menu (this was hard, absolutely EVERYTHING we tasted was delicious), to the incredible service day of, we could not have handpicked a more dedicated, professional, kind, and overall awesome team to work with on one of the most important events of our lives. Forever grateful to El Convento, and especially Fabiola, for making our wedding truly magical!

    Hotel El Convento's reply:
