El San Juan Resort & Casino is located in the foyer of the Hilton Hotel in the city of San Juan. This property is best known for being one of the most luxurious resort casinos in Puerto Rico, and was famous for its celebrity visits back in the 1960’s. When Hilton took over the hotel back in 2014 they intended to keep the magnificent theme and luxurious feel that makes it one of the most popular destinations in Puerto Rico for tourists. The Hilton Group classifies this property under their Curio Collection.

El San Juan is located in the capital city of Puerto Rico, on the Isle Verde Beach. Picture a pristine beachfront hotel perfectly tucked between nature and the city, this is what you can expect from El San Juan Resort & Casino. There are many attractions in the area including restaurants and bars, watersport activities, swimming, and the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico.

The Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport is the only international airport in San Juan, and it is only 2.2 miles away from El San Juan Resort & Casino. The best way to travel is by rental car or taxi/shuttle. There is secure parking available at the resort, with valet and self-parking options (including covered parking spaces) as well as.

The minimum age for both drinking and gambling in Puerto Rico is 18 years old, but the hotel goes one step further by restricting anyone under the age of 21 from entering. The dress code requires semi-formal attire with closed shoes, although a dress code is applicable to the hotel and all other resort facilities. There is an entrance fee if you are not staying at the resort, otherwise a resort fee is paid if booking accommodation for the use of all facilities.

El San Juan Resort & Casino

El San Juan boasts an impressive 17,000 square foot gaming floor that features all the gambling essentials. There is a classy atmosphere about the casino which is the same throughout the entire resort.

The casino is not really meant for high rollers, and it mostly features slot machines. There are a couple of table games spread across the floor, so they are usually over-crowded during peak hours. However, you can enjoy free drinks when playing at the casino. The staff are fairly strict on this rule as you actually have to be involved in a game in order to get free drinks.

The casino operates daily (Monday-Sunday) and stays open from 10AM to 5.30AM. Some of the table games like craps, for example, may only open later in the evening. Like casinos in other parts of the world, the slot machines will always be available. The best time to go to the casino is from 9PM because that is when it starts to get busy.

It is also worth mentioning that the main attraction of the casino is the resort itself. El San Juan Resort & Casino has one of the hottest nightclubs in San Juan, called Brava. There are constantly events being hosted at Brava, and it attracts a lot of locals as well as tourists.

Table games at El San Juan Casino

Being a vacation-style resort, this is not a casino meant for high rollers. Due to the laid-back atmosphere, the minimum bets are relatively low. If you are looking for a VIP casino experience, then you will likely have to look elsewhere.

There are only two types of table games offered at El San Juan. The tables are known to get extremely crowded so make sure you get there relatively early to reserve your spot at the table. There are $10 minimum blackjack tables (these are the most popular) and there are also one or two $20 tables. The rules are similar to most mainland U.S. casinos, except that all players are first dealt their cards before the dealer receives his cards.

You will find a small number of craps tables available. During peak hours, there will be maybe two or three tables running, and they are known to fill up fast. There are $5 and $10 tables and limits are pretty low.

Slots and Video Poker at El San Juan Casino

With just a 17,000 square foot casino floor, you will only find 100-200 slot machines at El San Juan. There are plenty of classic 3-reel machines, as well as modern multi-line video slots. Spin bets range from $0.01 to $5. Also, some of the machines are linked to a progressive jackpot bonus network that increases every time the specific machines within the network are played.

There is no electronic roulette or video poker available.
