Puerto Rico has three major coastal resorts near San Juan (within 45 min driving time):
Gran Meli¡ (no longer all inclusive) - Puerto Rico Vacations| Puerto Rico Resorts|Gran Meli¡
El Conquistador (my all time favorite) - Puerto Rico Hotels & Beachfront Resorts - El Conquistador Resort & Golden Door Spa
Wyndham Riomar - Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa is a Beautiful Puerto Rico Resort
These resorts are large, and offer wonderful beachfront locations that are relatively private for a wedding celebration. They are, however, removed from the San Juan metro area. Some of my couples don't like that because they find it is more costly for their guests who may consider staying at the resort instead of at any of the many options available in the San Juan area. Also, they are not near many of the attractions in San Juan (like the Old City, among others).
The smaller San Juan hotels are lovely but their beach areas are NOT private, meaning that the general public has access to those areas. Thus, having a private ceremony is a bit more difficult. Some examples include:
The Condado Plaza Hotel - San Juan Hotels & Puerto Rico Accommodations - Condado Plaza San Juan Hotel & Casino
La Concha - La Concha - A Renaissance Resort San Juan Puerto Rico
Ritz-Carlton (My favorite in this class of hotel) - The Ritz-Carlton, San Juan Hotel: A Luxury Hotel & Resort in Puerto Rico
Outside of the San Juan area and the resorts there are many Inns and other properties but they are further away from San Juan. Still, they may be worth a look, for example:
Villa Monta±a Beach Resort (Caribbean Holidays beach resort - Budget Luxury resort Puerto Rico)
Puerto Rico is relatively affordable and accessible from anywhere within the continental US, there are no passports required for US citizens, the dollar is the official currency, and most everyone speaks English. More importantly, it is as safe and orderly here as any of the states of the Union.
