The best Hotel value
in San Juan's famous Condado


Canario By The Lagoon
Intimate European Style Hotel








Meet the Staff





In the heart of the Condado
El Canario

Well, they're not really 'our' restaurants - since we don't have 'on-site' restaurants - other than the breakfast room and courtyards that we use for our complementary tropical breakfasts each morning.

However, we do have some of the best restaurants in San Juan just a few steps from each hotel. Just ask the front desk manager at any of our hotels for recommendations and you're sure to have a great dining experience whether you choose fast food, local Creole cooking, ethnic foods from all over the world or some of the most elegant fine dining in the Caribbean!   

There are also 'mini-markets', or as we call them, "Bodega's" near each hotel where you can get sodas, liquors, snacks, sandwiches, newspapers and local take-out food.

Mini-Marts and 'Bodegas'

A 24 hour Walgreens which has a very complete mini-mart section at the back.  No liquor, but there are other stores nearby.

Salud Health Store for those who prefer vegetarian fare...  also check out Eros Bodega for regular food items.

Ashford Avenue Restaurants

Ajili Mojili is perhaps the most elegant restaurant featuring traditional Puerto Rican specialties. Right on the Lagoon!

Great Taste Chinese Restaurant is considered by many to be the best 'New York Style' Chinese food in San Juan. Dim Sum served every day!

        Just past the Canario by the Lagoon.

Good reasonably priced Puerto Rican Food and Juice Bar at 'Cafe de Angel'.

Don't forget that even though you're away from home, you can still check your email and grab a coffee at Cybernet Cafe...



Sol y Luna is a great place to people watch in the new 'Ventana al Mar' park near Canario by the Lagoon.

Baskin Robbins also has Dunkin Donuts in the same store, right across from the other fast food outlets on Ashford Avenue


24 Hours a day you can find Caribbean Cuisine at the Latin Star. Next to Walgreens -  an easy walk from our hotel.

The Greenhouse at the Diamond Palace

Cherry Blossom at the Marriott for Sushi and Tepenaki specials...

The Marriott Resort with several great restaurants including 'Tuscany' which features an 'Early Bird' menu.

Starbucks is right across from the Marriott.
