Our Destination Wedding at The Intercontinental, San Juan

The hotel was a beautiful location for our wedding. The ceremony was on the beach, the cocktail hour in the gardens, and the reception on the boardwalk. The food was great, the service was excellent, and the whole thing came together thanks to Joel Perdomo the Social Events Sales Manager. Our destination wedding was a success, in great part, due to all of the staff at the hotel.

So... My wedding at another hotel was canceled one month before the big day due to renovations being moved up. And that was just one of a million other things that went majorly wrong leading up to my wedding. But what did go right??.... Joel! I thought my dream wedding would remain a dream until we moved our venue and guest rooms to the Intercontinental with Joel's help. My wedding, and my entire stay at the intercontinental was amazing. They have the best and friendliest staff, life-changing frozen mojitos (if you have never had them) and damn good food. Especially the fish tacos! I would not change a single thing about our whole experience with this hotel. I don't know why there aren't many other reviews, which made me hesitant before booking, but wow. The hotel is awesome. If your looking for a wedding venue, guest rooms, or just a place to vacation, this is it. And for those considering the hotel as your wedding venue, let me touch on some things that were important to us. 1) food. No one ever says they had phenomenal wedding food. Now I can say that I have. Everything served at the cocktail hour was amazing. The churrasco was beyond words and the Caribbean potato salad was.. I am seriously running out of words here.. Amazing also! Oh and the coconut flan. 2) venue. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on the boardwalk. We had the ocean breeze and a fantastic sunset. We had Palm trees and string lights. What more could you ask for? 3) hotel. Convenient location, amazing beach property, great rooms, great staff, private cabanas, bars and pool stayed open late, great breakfast, great food all around. No one wanted to leave. Including us! Thank you so much to Joel and the intercontinental!!
