Our Hotel

Manatí Hotel near San Juan, Puerto Rico

Manatí is commonly called the “Athens of Puerto Rico”, and that’s because we’re considered a center for intellectual and literary activity, with recreated architecture styled after the ancient metropolis of our nickname. What makes our location so special—besides endless shopping, dining and festivals—is our authentic Puerto Rican feel: with our hotel and location, you never feel trapped by typical touristy attractions and gimmicks. All of our flair and fun is the real deal.

Travel Tips

What to Pack

  • Sunscreen

Year-round sun and hot weather can really do a number on your skin, especially if you’re not used to the heat. Use it, even if you don’t plan to visit the beach.

  • Bathing Suit

With so many beautiful beaches to choose from, you don’t want to miss out on the fun just because you forgot your suit (and none of our public beaches are clothing-optional).

  • Light Clothes

After a day of sightseeing in Old San Juan or Ponce, you’ll be glad you decided to bring those white cotton shirts.

  • Comfortable Shoes

Comfortable shoes mean happy feet. And happy feet equals great vacation.

  • Bug Repellent

Protect yourself from unpleasant mosquito and no-see-um insect bites, especially if you plan on visiting the El Yunque rainforest or doing outdoor activities.

  • Rain Gear

Bring an umbrella or poncho to keep you dry. Tropical climate is very unpredictable and it can start raining out of the blue.

  • Hat

Protect your most precious body part from the sun's rays. It also keeps you cooler.

  • Dress Clothes

Even though the overall dress code is casual 24/7, some nightclubs, bars, restaurants and shows require more formal attire.

  • Flip-flops

They protect your feet from the hot sand and wash off easily when it's time to go.
