Williams Hospitality's Properties Target Families for Summer

Reed Travel Features

SAN JUAN -- Families are a major focus of a summer program launched by Williams Hospitality Group's three Puerto Rico properties: the Condado Plaza Hotel & Casino, El San Juan Hotel & Casino and El Conquistador Resort & Country Club.

The Four-for-Free offer, available between May 1 and Oct. 31, offers the same four features at each property: a free category upgrade, a fifth night free, free daily activities for children and free meals for children under age 12.

Room rates at El Conquistador start at $75 per person, per night, double; at $70 at the El San Juan, and at $60 at the Condado Plaza.

A meal plan covering breakfast, lunch and dinner is an additional $49 per person, per day. Children from ages 12 to 16 get a 50% discount on the meal plan.

The 570-room, 62-suite Condado Plaza is five minutes from the walls of Old San Juan, 10 minutes from the cruise ship piers and a 20-minute ride from the airport.

Rates for the two-floor Plaza Club, which features 75 rooms and five suites, average $50 more per room, per night, and include breakfast, hors d'oeuvres in the evening, coffee and cake at 9 p.m. and turndown service.

The 389-room San Juan Hotel & Casino, in the Isla Verde area, underwent a $30 million renovation three years ago.

Both the Condado and El San Juan also offer a Puerto Rico Romance plan that includes champagne, daily breakfast, two dinners, two massages and a deluxe room.

Plans are priced from $185 per couple per night for a three-night stay at the Condado and from $195 at El San Juan.

The big draw for families at the 918-room Conquistador, at the northeast tip of Puerto Rico, 31 miles from San Juan, is the resort's private Palomino Island, 15 minutes by boat from the resort.

The family-friendly resort also has scuba and golf packages at special rates from June 1 to Oct. 31.

The Sporting Way scuba program includes six deep-sea dives, rental of equipment, free use of the fitness center, daily continental breakfast and roundtrip airport transfers.

This is priced at $145 per person, per night, double, including tax and tariffs with a minimum three-night stay.

El Conquistador's three-night Great Golf package features unlimited rounds of golf, cart and range balls, a daily golf clinic, use of the fitness center, daily breakfast and roundtrip transfers.

The price is $140 per person, per night, double.

Caribbean Romance includes deluxe accommodations, champagne, daily breakfast, two hours of tennis, massages and dinner to two in Isabellas steak and seafood restaurants.

Rates start at $215 per couple, per night, for three nights.
