    I have to add, the info I provided is only a small portion of the island- the tourist area and more expensive. We only had a chance to visit half the island.. we drove and passed so many great locations. I really want to go back and "backpack" throught the rest of the island.

    I'm sure you can find a great location there.

      There are so many wonderful areas out of the San Juan area.

      Vieques, which is off of the west coast is a beautiful place with caribbean beaches and a relaxed atmosphere.

      Rincon on the west coast is a laid back surfer town with awesome beaches and some very upscale botique hotels.

      Ponce on the southern coast is a vibrant community with art musems, shopping and a bio-luminescent bay.

      When we went to PR last year we got off the plane in San Juan and headed right out of town. Hopefully we will get to go back again this spring for a few days.

        Jason beat me but I would second Vieques, and I would also say check out TripAdvisor.com to get reviews and even candid pics of places, that how we pick almost every hotel we stay in.

          yes - funny - our very 1st choice was Vieques - we researched and were so excited to find out that Martineau Bay was becoming a W Retreat and Spa - the bad news is it won't re-open until Jan 2009 so that is out
          then we found this great place called The Inn on the Blue Horizon but they are not large enough to accomodate our group as they only have 10 rooms. there isn't really anywhere else in Vieques that is luxurious and gets consistently great reviews

          finding a location for us has been really tough!!!!

            If you are looking for something a little bit off the beaten path, but still somewhat luxurious I might have a few for you.

            Rincon Beach Resort. Very very nice place, but the beach is not so great for swimming. For laying out on the beach and watching sunsets though it is awesome.

            Hotel and beach resort in Rincon Puerto Rico

            Horned Dorset Primavera. Very nice upscale sort of place with a boutique feel. One of the cast members from Ugly Betty got married there recently.

            Hopefully in the near future our dream of owning a hotel in Rincon will come to life and we will be able to host weddings ourselves!

              Thanks for the info - we have looked at both of these - decided to pass on Rincon b/c of the swimming and Horned Dorset b/c of the $$$ - that place is crazy expensive. we are fixated on doing a buy out at The Lodge at Molokai Ranch in Hawaii so we'll see how that goes!

                I am looking at San Juan but I don't seem to be able to find any other PR brides...

                  Are there any AI options in PR?

                    Sadly, there really aren't any AIs in PR. Maybe one but I hear it's super expensive. However, PR accomodations, food, etc. is relatively inexpensive.

                      Gran Melia is a semi all inclusive at certain levels, it used to be Paradisis. I think Copamarina is an all-inclusive.
