SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - From kids' spa treatments and cooking classes to a family portrait in front of the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean and an elegant New Year's Eve affair, Hilton Worldwide's portfolio of hotels in Puerto Rico offers something for everyone this holiday season. Properties include: Caribe Hilton, The Condado Plaza Hilton; El Conquistador Resort, a Waldorf Astoria Resort; Las Casitas Village, a Waldorf Astoria Resort; and El San Juan Resort & Casino,. With nightly rates starting at $199, these hotels and resorts are all easily accessible to U.S. residents via the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport. No passport is required for U.S. residents.

Holiday with the Family
At the heart of San Juan, Caribe Hilton features on Christmas Eve a Puerto Rican Holiday Dinner Buffet with seasonal and traditional island food for the family. In addition, Caribe Hilton will have both a New Year's Eve Gala dinner buffet with live music as well as a "Night of Wonders, A Touch of Gold" dancing party of drinks and midnight bites. New beach cabanas are available for relaxing on the beach the day after while enjoying one of the island's largest and most luxurious resorts. This historic waterfront resort has been impeccably restored to reflect the character of historic San Juan while maintaining its renowned standards of luxury.

The only urban resort in San Juan overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Condado Lagoon, The Condado Plaza Hilton offers many family activities this holiday season. From cooking classes with Executive Chef Germania Maria Diaz and family portraits with the crashing waves of the Atlantic in the background to Mojito lessons for adults by the pool, families can enjoy each other at the urban resort  while being just minutes from the culture and history of Old San Juan. In addition, a private beach and protected swimming area with a water sports complex features windsurfers, aqua cycles, kayaks, an artificial reef and snorkeling gear. Nightly rates start at $199, exclusive of tax.

Dramatically set atop a 300-foot bluff on the eastern tip of Puerto Rico in Fajardo, El Conquistador Resort & Las Casitas Village offers dive-in movies, a poolside fashion show, Santa sightings and pizza and ceviche cooking classes with the chef this holiday season. While parents enjoy the Rums of Puerto Rico rum seminar or Puerto Rico Farmers Market, children can opt for some holiday treat decorating, a candy cane relay or the Finding Frosty scavenger hunt around the resort. Spa enthusiasts can bring their children to family yoga which overlooks the islands of the Caribbean Sea or to a SPAjama Party for some mini spa and salon services for the kids. In addition to its own private island which features horseback riding, kayaking, paddleboarding and more, the resort offers the Coqui Water Park, a state-of-the-art aquatic playground that features the iconic Torre de Yocahu, a tower from which three high-speed water slides flow; El Gigante Dormido (The Sleeping Giant) with an intense 40-foot drop; lazy river; infinity-edge pool; rope-bridge, and speed, tube, body and kids' slides. The resorts' two New Year's Eve parties - one an 80's pool party themed celebration and the other a lobby party with Latin Grammy Award nominees Juan Jose & San Juan Habana - have guests ringing in the new year with live music and fireworks. Nightly rates start at $419 at El Conquistador and $469 at Las Casitas, excluding taxes.

New Year's Eve Celebration to Remember with Friends
Perfect for a New Year's Eve fete with the girls or the guys, El San Juan Resort & Casino recently revealed refreshed accommodations, a revamped fantasy pool, the first Caribbean outpost of the famed Meat Market Miami steakhouse and more, solidifying its place as the foremost hotspot and entertainment venue in Puerto Rico. On December 31, the Black & Silver Celebration in the resort's famed Lobby and International Ballroom features music by several renowned Latin bands and DJs, including DJ Ivan Robles and Grupo Mania. Consistently the place to be in Puerto Rico on NYE, bottle service starts at $450 per table for up to four people, inclusive of a bottle of Veuve Clicquot through December 20. Individual entrance tickets are $90 per person. Nightly room rates start at $519, and do not include taxes and entrance to NYE Celebration.
